August 1, 2012 – “Syria is known as the safest country in the Middle East, possibly because, as the State Department’s Web site says, ‘the Syrian government conducts intense physical and electronic surveillance of both Syrian citizens and foreign visitors’. It’s a secular country where women earn as much as men and the Muslim veil is forbidden in universities, a place without bombings, unrest, or kidnappings.* Syria. The name itself sounded sinister, like syringe, or hiss. Syria is a dictatorship, which is the default mode throughout the region.”**
Makes sense? It does in Miss Joan Juliet Buck‘s world – and she isn’t bipolar, as far as I know.
Miss Buck is an American writer and actress who has been the chief editor of French Vogue and contributing editor to Vogue and Vanity Fair for many years. Currently she writes for T magazine, New York Time’s fashion magazine, and W. Unfortunately, her mainstream success story contains a notorious black page as lots of controversy and misfortune befell Miss Buck after she published a flattering Vogue profile of Syria’s first lady Asma al-Assad in early 2011, in which she describes the wife of president Bashar al-Assad as ”glamorous, young and very chic – the freshest and most magnetic of first ladies” and as “a thin, long-limbed beauty with a trained analytic mind” who is “breezy, conspiratorial, and fun”.
Not exactly the kind of wordings that win popularity contests in the Jewish-controlled entertainment industry.
Miss Buck must have realized this already in late 2010 when she pervaded the Vogue article headlined Asma al-Assad: A Rose in the Desert which states that the Assad household is “run on wildly democratic principles” with indirect allusions and assumptions such as “How close are they to Iran, Hamas, and Hezbollah?” and “Iraq is next door, Iran not far away. Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, is 90 minutes by car from Damascus. Jordan is south, and next to it the region that Syrian maps label Palestine”.
But by that time all eyes were on Tunisia followed by Egypt and Libya; no acute danger was lurking from Syria. Things have changed a bit since then, which forced Miss Buck to state in a CNN interview with journalist and television host Pierce Morgan that she ”didn’t really want to do the piece” because she “didn’t really want to meet the Assads”. However, ”when I went, Asma said she was going to cook lunch for me and it was their apartment and there was Assad. It was Friday which was the Muslim Sunday, and he was wearing a sweater, and he kept showing me his cameras and he kept kind of following me around and I got the feeling that he wanted to be interviewed as well”, Miss Buck declared in the February 9 interview, two months after she was fired as one of Vogue‘s contributing editors, which left her free to discuss the controversy.
Vogue took the piece off its website in May 2011, but with the corporate media stepping up their information war on Syria, Miss Buck recently must have concluded that her statement needed to be reformulated, re-emphasized and resent to a world that now more than ever is eager to swallow any evil about the Assads. In a mea culpa attempt to rehabilitate her name in that world, she spent over 5,000 words on a July 30 article in which she declares she was duped into writing the Vogue profile of her formerly favourite first lady to whom she now refers as “first lady of hell”.
Wouldn’t that world – already indoctrinated to the teeth by the same imperialist powers that seek to oust president Assad in their march to Iran, China, Russia – immediately fall for the innocent female voice sounding through Miss Buck’s words:
I didn’t know I was going to meet a murderer. There was no way of knowing, as I cheered the events in Tahrir Square, that I would be contaminated because I had written about the Assads. There was no way of knowing that this piece would cost me my livelihood and end the association I had had with Vogue since I was 23. I met the devil and his wife, with full fashion-magazine access to their improbable fishbowl apartment where they lived out their daily lives on display to the eyes of thousands, like a Middle-Eastern version of The Truman Show. They showed off their fantasy lives for me.
“Our project is about empowering this generation of young people to become active citizens, able to be part of the change the country’s going through”, said Asma al-Assad during the December 2010 interview about the series of youth “discovery centers” she was setting up. Yet, declaring Syria’s first lady could be “drugged, compliant, indifferent, complicit”, Miss Buck wonders if Asma “was conscious that by empowering the children of Syria to take charge of their destinies, she was feeding them to her husband’s torturers”.
With her brainwashed logic drumming a mellow, almost endearing beat of war throughout the article, Miss Buck embodies the West’s most precious puppet – at least for some days. If Mrs. Hillary Warzone Clinton hasn’t been able to convince you of the inevitability of “regime change” in Syria, you now somewhere deep down should feel slightly uncomfortable and acknowledge it would be sort of cruel to not surrender to Miss Buck’s personal story of initial hesitation, heart-warming naivety, admirable frankness, and, after all, dupe.
The July 30 article concludes:
Through 2011, I wondered about Asma al-Assad, the woman who cared so much about the youth of Syria. How could she not know what was happening? How could she stand by and do nothing while the Syrian regime ate its young?
I would like to return this question to the author:
I wonder about Joan Juliet Buck, the woman who cares so much about democracy, freedom and peace. How can she not see what is happening? How can she stand by and do nothing while her country continues its global slaughter of innocents during its so-called war on terror, while her country now even openly admits to back and arm the foreign terrorists who kill and destroy in Syria under the guise of fighting for democracy?
Yes Miss Buck, you got duped. Not exactly in 2010, yet thoroughly in 2012. You got duped by the globalist elite, the corporate-financiers and the Jewish powers that control the media, powers that leave no opportunity unused to impose their dumbing and numbing “war is peace” campaign on every man, woman and child within their reach. Actually, you are a part of them yourself. Actually, Miss Buck, you got duped by yourself – and you don’t even realize it.
Ashton Kutcher if you read this, please hire this lady. She will take your show to an entire new level.
