Betula Nelson asks to BBC's Andrew Marr

Our reader Betula Nelson sent a letter to Avrupa Times about BBC's Andrew Marr programme. Betula Nelson asks to BBC's Andrew Marr about  "the so called uprising is a creation of western manipulation of separate groups of ethnic populations who have centuries of ethnic"  

 "Dear Andrew Marr,

Your last Sunday's programme, in discussing the Syrian situation with the Shadow Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Douglas Alexander, acknowledged the help (financial, arms and intelligence) provided to the rebel groups fighting the Assad regime. It was said that these rebel groups were disorganised and were not able to present as a united front with a leadership. If only you were to ask  the question why, you could have reached the answers yourselves.

It was very disappointing that neither of you were critical enough to point out 'the obvious' that the so called uprising is a creation of western manipulation of separate groups of ethnic populations who have centuries of ethnic and religious antipathy towards each other. It is highly improbable for them to unite while each group is fighting for their own domination and has no interest in sharing power. None of them has an overriding legitimacy and also up against jihadist who are fighting not for a new Syria but for Islam. A Guardian columnist wrote nearly a year ago that all the known groups such as SLA, FSA and SLA were funded by US, UK and some Arab States and that their headquarters were either in London or in the US. None of their directors had been living in Syria and had no first hand experience of life in Syria. It is only natural to conclude that this is an outside interference and not a genuine uprising. The consequences for the neighbouring countries, especially for Turkey is too frightening to contemplate. It is sad that there seems to be no lessons learned from Iraq and from other Arab countries where 'spring' supposed to have taken place. 

The BBC sadly falls short of the expectations of its audience who wants to see a fully informed and fully honest BBC and not a watered down and 'do not rock the boat' type of discussion which avoids the truth and evidence.

Yours sincerely,

Betula Nelson"
