Piling on Syria


Syria is Washington's war. Nothing civil about it.

by Stephen Lendman

Western-recruited Islamofascist killers are US favorites. They committed mass murder and horrific atrocities since last year. Washington, other Western countries, and regional rogues arm, fund, train, direct, and encourage them.

On December 21, Russia Today interviewed Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Moscow isn't "in the business of regime change," he said.

He categorically rejects notions about Russia granting Assad asylum. He condemned Western double standards. So-called friends are terrorists, he said. They're ravaging Syria.

"Our colleagues from the UN Security Council have been refusing to condemn these terror acts," he added.

"They have been critical of terrorism as a whole but said we must take into account the reasons why rebels are attacking security forces."

"Our Western colleagues are dividing terrorists into bad ones and acceptable ones. This could end badly."

Earlier chances to end conflict failed, he stressed. They're gone. Moscow pushed hard for diplomatic resolution. Washington, key NATO partners, and regional allies prevented it. Russia remains committed. It's going all out to prevent full-scale war.

Lavrov's concerned about Turkish-based offensive Patriot missiles on Syria's border. They "could be used against (Syria and) Iran."

Russia doesn't recognize Syrian National Council (SNC) 2.0 officials. It's ready to talk to all sides to end conflict. Only dialogue works, he believes. Conflict can persist longterm.

Neither side can win, he stressed. He's also concerned about terrorists getting chemical weapons. More on that below.

On December 22, the Syrian Free Press said "terrorist groups threaten to pollute Syrian drinking water with toxic chemicals."
