Gen. Paul Vallely to Newsmax: Assad Has Fled Syria and He’s “Just As Bad As Hitler”


army-major-gen-paul-vallelySyrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad – who shocked the world last week with his use of deadly chemical weapons on rebel forces – has fled the country with his family, sources tell retired U.S. Army Major Gen. Paul Vallely.

“I got a report in he’s already left with his family for Tehran this morning,” Vallely told “The Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax.

“He is backed into a corner now. He needs to be taken down.”

Vallely, chairman of Stand Up America, a non-profit, public-policy think tank, called Assad, “just as bad as Hitler. Over 100,000 people killed so far, a lot of children.

“The fact you’d use gas on your own people and attack them indicates that the international community needs to take charge and do something. They laid back with Hitler and look what happened.”

  1. This guy is speaking recklessly and doesn’t know what he is talking about.

    The comparison to Hitler, yemach shemo vezichro, is incorrect and odious. He executed civilians who were not connected to an insurrection, via extermination camps, mobile killing units, and so on. On the other hand, here, while there are civilian casualties, they are connected to a war, an armed insurrection.

  2. as bad as Hitler for 100,000 people?!?!? Hitler killed almost ten times that amount, if you count everyone!!!!! Assad is beyond description, but don’t cheapen hitler!!!

  3. Everyone relax. This isn’t a game of whose atrocity is worse than whose. Assad is as bad to the people he is killing as hitler was to the Jews. It’s all a matter of perspective. Regarding #1- Assad is also killing innocent women and children who obviously have not taken up arms in the war. He’s not only killing the people who are actively rising up

  4. Dave- redo your math and restate as almost one hundred times (at 10M vs just 10 times 100k equalling one million), as it seems that is what you intended to convey.

  5. #2,

    You meant 100 times as much.
    Good point.

    But there is a comparison to the nazis, may their memory be obliterated. Iran. Iran is backing Assad. Thats where Assad ran to.
    And yes, thats what Iran would like to do. They want to, chas vesholom, murder 10,000,000 people. They’ve been very clear as to their intentions.
    May Hashem save us from all evil.

  6. His analogy may be a bit off, but his theory is correct.

    The world “laid back with Hitler, and look what happened.”

    Spot on.

  7. The analogy is incorrect. Hitler ??? ??? ????? had a plan and worked systematically to kill all Jews. Every single one. Assad does not have a plan to kill all Sunnis and is not working toward that. He is just fighting a rebellion. Innocent people might be killed in the course of that, but his main intention is to fight the rebellion.
