Skip to comments.Report: Syria's Assad Killed
Posted on 08/06/2012 7:44:11 AM PDT by kristinn
RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT CONFIRMS: BASHAR AL ASSAD, PRESIDENT OF SYRIA, HAS BEEN KILLED TODAY IN LATAKYJA WITH HIS WIFE AND TWO PEOPLE.
Not even RT is reporting it.
Waiting for confirmation....then I’ll have a celebration cookie.
Think Assad was bad? Just wait until the Islamo-Nazi Muslim Brotherhood takes power. When they have taken over all of the countries near Israel they’ll attack.
IT’s FAKE, FOLKS....
A Bunch Of People Are Getting Duped By This Fake Twitter Account That’s Saying Syrian President Assad Is Dead
Folks, there’s a blatantly fake twitter account that has a grand total of 6 tweets that is spreading nonsense about Syrian President Assad and his family being killed.
The Twitter account’s bio is: VLADIMIR KOLOKOLTSEV, Minister of Interior of Russian Federation. Official Twitter Account, but that means nothing. There have been several similar fakes over the past year or so spewing fake news (usually about the mideast).
They accumulate followers each time, and then they switch names and handles (very easy to do) making it look like the account has a legacy and history of being real.
If the Russians announced it, I suspect they know a lot more about it than the CIA does. Obummer wouldn’t have the cajones to order it.
BTW, Reuters' Twitter account was hacked this weekend...
Darn....no cookie for me
Oh wait, it was...
The bad guys (or,perhaps,the *worse* guys) clearly won in Egypt.Let’s see if the same is true here.If it is,watch out Lebanon...watch out Israel!
Nothing on Reuters, Yahoo News or Google News.
Remember when we used to laugh here about how many OBL top Lieutenants were killed? There was always a slot open for Obama’s number 3.
Convenient that Russian troops just arrived to keep “their” port open.....
Oh fer cryin’ out loud-I had an appointment with him next Tuesday!;)
The only thing I accept at face value from any government is the news that some political foe has been taken out. However, I’m not sure this is coming from any source other than the rumor mill at this point.
Good point: Russia may have gotten involved just because they knew he’d be out one way or another and the USA wouldn’t be installing anyone first-world friendly.
We are likely being hustled.
Looks like a fake twitter account, bogus story.
Very credible report that Assad’s wife flew out of Syria last week to Russia.
Also, Assad is very unlikely to be in Latakia, he was last seen in Damascus.
Syrian Prime Minister Reportedly Has Defected
Syria’s Prime Minister Riad Hijab reportedly has defected to Jordan, according to a Jordanian official and a rebel spokesman (FoxNews)
Business Insider says this is fake:
ANKARA, Turkey Syria’s prime minister defected and fled to neighboring Jordan, a Jordanian official and a rebel spokesman said Monday, evidence that the cracks in President Bashar’s Assad’s regime have reached the highest echelons of government.
Unless as you hope the Russians manage to install a replacement (meaning another Ba’athist, and a continuation of the fighting between the Syrian government and the Syrian Islamists) his replacement will certainly be worse for the remaining Christians in Syria (about 11% of the population), and most likely worse for Israel (the Ba’athists honored the Golan Heights agreement for decades, much longer than the ten year hudna that is the Islamists maximum duration for a peace with non-Muslims) and America.
So, I shall reserve judgement on Assad's demise till it's confirmed and then the confirmation is confirmed.
Bogus story, twitter is being pulled.
A lesson for us all, there are a lot of fake twitter and facebook accounts.
Crude oil spiked on dumb HFT activity from algos that ‘read’ this tweet.
Which was probably the reason for the tweet: it moved the market.
Clearly it was not from blunt-force trauma to the head.
That had obviously already been tried several times, to no effect.
Of many things, he is also the grand Ghazi in the White House looking to generate the caliphate (at our expense in many ways). Goal number one is the eradication of Israel. After Israel it is Europe and or the US and not necessarily in that order.
Who put this garbage out, Pravada or Baghdad Bob!?? =.=
I read a few day ago where his wife is not in Syria, but she is in Russia. It is wise that she and all the rest of family are not in Syria now. That place is a powder keg.
AHHHHHH bologna 7 hours ago and no news just a twitter i think the russians are wagging the dog !
Chalk up another kill for the Rambozo!
“I heard it was a snowboarding accident.”
I’m so glad that was a hoax - Murphy is a funny guy - except his standup is too raunchy for me. Although it would be really funny if he did a routine around his snowboarding “death”. I can just imagine him talking about blacks (with liberal use of the “N-word” and winter sports).
This account is an hoax created by italian journalist Tomasso De Benedetti
Still, the account has a great list of media and government Twitter accounts it follows.
Twitter is so compromised by fake accounts it will become useless in the future.
Twitter has a web crawler that tips others, as directed by the person setting up the bogus account to link in, monkey see, monkey do.
Twitter isn’t news, neither are blogs, I never post from either until I can verify an independent second source.
Debka is another iffy source that we all are careful with.
Did Obama order it? Did our CIA do it?
Did Valerie Jarrett sanction it?
sad...his wife is (was) hot
his wife was a hot dictator, she would not cede power willingly
Has Debka and Michael Rivero confirmed it yet?
It reminds me of when poor Kim Jong-un was killed in Beijing a couple of months ago.
Oh, yeah...and Castro died today; and Chavez died yesterday.
...with red-coned flashlights at the landing site.
This was just another subtle hint to step down. He won’t go. The Russians will kill him and try to install a puppet while taking credit for restoring public order. That won’t work.
