One of the greatest lies of the entire conspiracy against the Syrian Arab Republic, if not the single most ubiquitous and oft-repeated lie of all, is that the Syrian Arab Army is a predominantly Alawi force and that it really operates more like a “sectarian militia” or a “gang of shabiha” than a national military.
And whilst anyone who considers himself or herself pro-Syria has debunked this falsehood with such repetition that it has become a central talking point for putting sleeping lemmings through the class of “Understanding The Conspiracy Against Syria 101”, we nevertheless continue to say it over and over again that the SAA is not sectarian, nor is it minoritarian.
The SAA is in fact mostly Sunni, as Syria itself is mostly Sunni, as well as multi-communal, with all types of Syrians from all walks of life comprising the lower and upper ranks of the righteous institution, as Syria is the most pluralistic country in our region.
This truth shines particularly bright in the wake of the massacre that the American regime committed against Syrian soldiers in Deir Ezzor. There were Sunnis, Shi’a, Alawis, Druze and Christians among those martyred and wounded, and their origins can be traced back to every corner of Syria, from the smallest villages to the grandiose lights of the provincial capitals.
