This weekend, John Kerry's subordinate at the US State Department, Tony Blinken, announced, hot on the heels, of the Vienna summit that Washington is to ply $100 million into Syria to "support the moderate opposition."

According to Voice of America, Blinken said the money "would be given to help the Syrian opposition boost local governments and civil societies... for keeping schools open, restoring access to clean water and electricity, and supporting an independent media."

This hoary formula is straight out of the US State Department's manual for inciting "colour revolutions" as we saw in Ukraine, Georgia and several other countries.

The despicable difference in Syria is that the "civil society" and infrastructure supposedly being repaired with $100 million has been destroyed in the first place by Washington's nefarious regime-change war. The apparent generous largesse of the US government in Syria is not just about infiltrating the country politically, it is also a disgusting bribe dangled before a war-torn, devastated nation.

The Western powers are endeavouring to co-opt Russia and Iran to contrive a political framework aimed at achieving their core goal -- ousting President Assad.

Russia and Iran are not buying this ruse, insisting that the political future of Syria is the sovereign prerogative of the Syrian people.

There is no need for a "new political process." The principle of sovereignty in Syria was already established in the Geneva Communique three years ago.

What Russia and Iran should do is defeat the Washington-led axis politically, as they are doing militarily. Peace in Syria will be achieved when Washington, principally, desists from its criminal scheming and finally abides by international law.

As for John Kerry's "bleeding heart..." The blood-soaked hands of Washington, Britain, France, and the other criminal states, are the far more real and pertinent issue.
