Stepped-Up Pressure on Assad


Washington's regime change plans remain unchanged.

by Stephen Lendman

Last weekend's anti-Assad Damascus and Aleppo terrorist violence reflects Washington's violent pursuit of regime change.

Peaceful resolution efforts are subverted. Obama's waging undeclared war. On March 19, Iran's Russian ambassador, Mahmoud Reza Sajjadi, explained US-style democracy, saying:

"There were the first signs that American democracy had come to Damascus (and Aleppo). We saw American puppets' attempt to establish democracy in Syria by exploding (bombs) in Damascus (and Aleppo)."
 

Dozens died. Many others were injured. Calling Washington's regional allies "reactionary Arab regimes," he said getting in bed with the devil has a price. Their Western support will backfire when their regimes are targeted. 

On Monday morning, heavy Damascus fighting erupted. Witnesses said explosions and machine gun fire were heard in the al-Mezzeh district. It's home for several government security installations. Russia Today reported one resident saying:

"There is fighting near Hamada supermarket and the sound of explosions there and elsewhere in the neighborhood. Security police have blocked several side streets and the street lighting has been cut off."
