Iraqi Kurd Who Supports Assad Outrages Iain


President Bashar al-Assad said today that the chemical attack in Khan Sheikhoun was fabricated. This caller’s refusal to condemn him provoked a fiery response from Iain.

Alan in Maida Vale fled Iraq for the UK after Saddam Hussein used chemical weapons on his hometown.

His experience of the impact of chemical weapons combined with Syria’s president Assad persecution of Kurds might lead you to believe that Alan would be more favourable to the USA, but that wasn’t the case.

He said after the US invaded Iraq on the pretence of chemical weapons, which did not exist, he now did not trust anything they do.

“Do you want me to believe Mr Trump or do you want me to believe Assad?” Alan asked.

“I think as an Iraqi Kurd its an absolute disgrace that you’re defending Assad.” Iain said.

“You come and seek refuge in a country that has taken you in, and you have the cheek to blame this country, and the United States, another democracy, for all of this? That’s sickening.”

Alan revealed that his Kurdish brothers were fighting against Syrian forces, but that was not enough to make him support the US over Assad.

“My experience is that Assad is probably telling the truth.”
