It was not all that long ago when he wore the mantle of the World-Swallowing Heir to Ghengiz Khan. He was the Jihaan-Goshaa’iy (جهان كشائي) He was the Liberator – El Libertador – of Syria. He was going to set everything right the proper way, by slitting throats, incinerating infidels, vaporizing infrastructure – everything to get rid of those pesky Alawis who would not give him the rank of Field Marshall of Runways.
Now, being defrocked and after his own heroes managed to blow off his right leg in Al-Mayaadeen forcing him to wait in line for a German prosthesis while having to suffer the indignity of a Turkish peg-leg shaped like a matteh straw, he has taken to the airwaves, naked like King Lear, to denounce the Fake Syrian Army (FSA), the Jabhat Al-Nusra (J.N.), NATO, the Scarabians and “all that creates ingrateful man”.
“The FSA suffers from divisiveness in its ranks”, he puffed.
In a broadside against FSA Commander Super-Creep, Salim Idrees, he fulminated: “There is discrimination in the way assets are allocated to our cadres.”
“The FSA has committed wrongs against our people”. Yeah. Wow!
“We have failed to win majority support.” Oh, yeah? Hmmm.
“The bleedin’ Syrian Army is advancing everywhere over the last year. And the FSA has lost territory.”
Boo hoo hoo.
The spitting image of Salim Idrees, Dr. Josef Mengele, proudly gives a half-profile shot for the passport photographer.
“Anarchy is causing our officers to desert their posts!” Talk about two-timers!
“We are seeing our forces Coming under the control of warlords”.
“The bloody Syrian Exiles have stolen everything. They stole the FSA’s name. There is no political leadership inside the FSA.”
“Money is the major motivator for the FSA soldiers”.
“Tribalism and partisanship now dominate”.
“The Syrian people are marching against us.”
So is time, Colonel. Why not get a job with the Turkish equivalent of Goodwill Industries.
