Assad: U.S. trying to destabilize Syria
CNN ^ | Sun July 8, 2012

Posted on 07/08/2012 8:06:00 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican

(CNN) -- Syria's president on Sunday accused the United States of trying to destabilize Syria by providing political support to rebels fighting the regime.

Bashar al-Assad also said a months-old peace plan aimed at ending the violence has not failed, but it has yet to be implemented because countries are supporting the "terrorists" in Syria.

Al-Assad's interview with German broadcaster ARD aired as the opposition Local Coordination Committees of Syria reported another 60 people killed in the country Sunday.

It also came the same day U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the Syrian regime's days are numbered. Noting a number of recent defections from the regime, Clinton said, "the sand is running out of the hourglass."

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon added Sunday that the situation in Syria has deteriorated significantly and become more militarized. "Appalling" human rights violations continue, he said, and the killings and violence have turned even more sectarian.

This is no surprise, Obama supported the MB in Egypt, and Libya. Obama helped Iran crush a rise against the jihadist govt in place. Hillary has already said Assad needs to go, with the Brotherhood waiting to take over. The citizens of America elected people that have gotten us into bed with the very people that helped bring down the Twin Towers. Shame on us and God help us, His judgment will not be merciful.

Absolutely correct. America has been taken over by the hardest core of communists in it's history. And this infection has grown beyond belief. I have said over and over that King Obama is a communists black Muslim.

The solution is readily available: "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

Obama and Clinton took down Ben Ali, they took down Mubarak, they took down Gaddafi and now they want to take down Assad.

And the assault on western democratic values in the middle east continues.

This article below from Russia explains some of the possible war crimes committed by the Obama/Hillary coalition. Apparently that was a marriage made in .... well, unfortunately, we know where. Now this is the Syrian and Russian point of view and it is a difficult read, but interesting anyway.

The defections are serious, with a 30 year Brigadier General and lifelong friend of Asad now in France, estimates that as many as 40 senior brass have fled and 80,000 Sunni Muslim soldiers failed to show up for training exercises last week. Asad can blame a lot of people but Boehner is not a good bet.

If you are so inclined... Read Isaiah 17, these could be significant days for Damascus.

In fact I think this article is pretty one-sided too. I think Syrian troops commited some atrocities against rebels and inflicted collateral damage on civilians but it is not near on that scale as reported. There are defections as well as soldiers are fearing NATO airstrikes. Real massacre is on hands of Al-Qaeda operatives who used it to blame government.

Like we didn’t already know this?

Breaking News for maybe the sheeple in America, but for those of us awake, we realize exactly what is going on...

What goes around, comes around...
The entire Arab world, Russia and a host of other nasty nations have supported terror for decades. For Syria, this meant sending murderers to kill Israeli Jews and opposition figures within Syria. Now, after so many bloody years, the chickens have come home to roost within Syria herself. May it destroy those who would destroy. In the Arab's case, their plight reminds me of an old saying that I can't cite the originator, “...those whom G-d wishes to destroy he first drives mad”, and they are mad indeed!

How many of remaining soldiers are Alawites? And if the Sunni takes over, what’s going to happen to the Alawites? Not to mention the Christian minority as well?

Putin definitely appears more totalitarian then Obama and the DC gang. But that is only because the DC Gang has perfected the RINO/DINO game. They do not have to jail their political opponents, since they are their own opponents. And of course we saw during the primaries how they savagely attacked any true conservatives.

Back during the Cold War, you just assumed Russia was lying. Now you have to at least consider their point of view.
