He did the right thing. He called for national mobilization against "outside forces."
DF said his strategy reflects "a long-term insurance policy for bolstering his regime's survival." He believes Russian naval forces in Syrian waters "deter the West from deploying ground forces to Syria."
Their presence serves as "counterweight" against offensive Patriot missiles near Syria's border.
He was conciliatory. He urged dialogue with "those who have not betrayed Syria." He offered more constitutional reform, new government representing all Syrians, and amnesty to end conflict.
He rejects Western puppets. He offered conflict resolution hope. He reached out responsibly to nonbelligerent opposition forces.
Washington, key NATO partners, Israel, other regional allies, and illegitimate SNC 2.0 puppets spurn him. Peaceful conflict resolution remains a distant hope.
