Here are just a few updates on the ridiculously fake “ISIS Tank” video.
On Oct. 24th, the pro-Western propaganda outlet, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (which is actually one guy living in London who hasn’t been to Syria in 16 years or so), released a video he claims was sent to him by “ISIS” which purports to show them running over a Syrian soldier with a tank.
Yesterday, I wrote in great detail how I concluded the video was just another fake execution effort put out by folks who want us to hate “ISIS”, the new enemy of the day. from the editing of the video and the strange hair-cut they gave the guy to the “victim’s” effort to hop directly in the path of the tank’s tread… I concluded this execution is as fake as a three-dollar bill.
I also pointed out how the release of this video just happened to coincide with Sec. of Defense Ashton Carter’s stated effort to send US soldiers to Syria in order to embed them with our “moderate” terrorists as human shields to protect them from Russian cruise missiles and bombs.
I decided today to look a little deeper into the video itself. Where it came from and how it’s been received.
An important thing to keep in mind is the fact that it came from the propaganda outlet, the SOHR. It was sent to him and he released it on the 24th.
Also important to remember, the guy said back in September, that “ISIS” would be running over Syrian soldiers with tanks in the near future. How he knew that prior to them running this guy over with a tank, is anyone’s guess (or maybe he was just previewing (a teaser?) the release of his upcoming propaganda film? hmm?)
Whenever someone writes about this crappy video, this fake murder, they always give the “soldier’s” name as Fadi Amr al-Zaydan and they cite the SOHR as their source for that information.
Well, I tracked that source down a bit and do you know what I found? I found the original posting by the SOHR (that one, pro-Western propagandist) and he bases his conclusion as to the identity of the “victim” on one thing… the guys SAYS his name is “Fadi Amr al-Zaydan” in the video and the guy says he’s a Syrian soldier.
And that is it.
That’s like saying I know the guy in the movie is really James Bond because he SAYS “I’m Bond. James Bond”
So what I decided to do was head over to the most authoritative compilation of Syrian soldiers who have lost their lives in our destabilization campaign. They list all the Syrian soldiers killed in this conflict and refer to them as martyrs.
They do the same for each and every Syrian citizens killed by random mortar fire launched their way by our “moderate” terrorists.
I went to SANA (Syrian Arab News Agency)
Do you know how many articles they have written on the subject of this video?
Do you know how many times they have mentioned Fadi Amr al-Zaydan on their website?
Trust me. Were this video to be legit. Were that guy playing the role of the victim to have actually been a Syrian soldier, SANA would be all over this. And rightly so.
SANA keeps up with the SOHR’s propaganda. They call them out as a fake human rights organization all the time. They certainly have seen this crappy production. Press TV even covered it. So it’s not like they haven’t noticed it.
But they don’t cover it and they certainly aren’t covering it for a reason. And that’s because it’s fake.
That is not a soldier from the Syrian army… the video does not show anyone being run over by a tank other than what I assume to be either a dummy or a dead body.
Interestingly, the reason they supposedly ran this guy over with a tank was because he ran over “ISIS” dead bodies with it before.
“… and I was a tank driver, and I a used a tank to run over bodies of the Islamic State’s soldiers” “victim” via propaganda outlet SOHR
” This apostate dirty Nusayri ran over our brothers who were dead in a tank so it was decided that he will be run over by the tank while he is alive” bad guy “ISIS’ dude via propaganda outlet SOHR
To borrow a line from RedsilverJ, “let’s review”
On the day when Ashton Carter revealed his plan to use US soldiers as human shields in Syria to save his “moderate” terrorists from Russian bombs, a pro-Western propaganda outlet made good on their promise to deliver an “ISIS” video showing the “terrorists” running over a Syrian soldier with a tank. That soldier, who know one has confirmed as being a Syrian soldier, does his level best to hop into the path of greatest resistance under the tank tread and “ISIS” makes sure to edit the film so you don’t actually see that guy run over but rather you see a body (with matching missing hair patch) run over from the front, cleverly keeping you from seeing his face as he’s crushed. And after all of this, SANA, which considers it their mission and religious duty to honor all the fallen soldiers in this conflict, for some unknown reason, completely ignores this soldier’s sacrifice.
Does that about sum it up?
Uh. This is a propaganda production, brought to us by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights pure and simple.
Thanks for your time.
