Moscow, August 7, Interfax Delays in the process of suppressing terrorists in Syria can result in setting up an Islamic caliphate in the country, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov believes.
"Earlier, we saw how some members of the Security Council didnt want to condemn terrorist acts in Syria, saying, that, no matter how cynical it may sound, those who carry out these acts struggle against the regimen, which exhausted itself. This position is absolutely unacceptable, terrorism should be treated without any double standards," he said at a press conference summing up his talks with Ghana Foreign Minister Hannah Tetteh.
Lavrov reminded that representatives of many terrorist organizations did not conceal their intentions to set up a caliphate or emirate in Syria.
"That is the result of delaying tough measures on suppressing military actions and focusing this entire military machine on the struggle against terrorism, both from the side of government and opposition," the minister said.
He reminded that the day before about 450 peaceful Kurds including more than hundred children were violently killed in the northern Syria by Jabhat al-Nusra militants, another terrorist act took place in Damask.
Lavrov is 100% correct on this issue. Caliphate is taking shape with the destruction of nationalist and socialist regimes through the Middle East and North Africa by a single entity - a Muslim Brotherhood and it’s military wing aka Al-Qaeda.
No matter how nasty former regimes were, they were too different to form any kind of viable alliance and too weak on it’s own to effectively take on any Western power including Israel.
Not to mention all of these nationalist and socialist nations offered their citizens a rate of freedoms and opportunities unseen in any head-chopping Sharia counterparts and their leaders were responsible enough to keep out of serious collision with Western interests most of the time.
Let these bearded savages have another rather advanced nation and you will have another piece of their puzzle in place.
Does anyone really thinks that the Middle East and North Africa controlled by a single entity of a head-chopping bearded savages with their “defence” ministry - Al-Qaeda in control of a treasury and military assets of subverted nations is a good idea?
Obama thinks it is wonderful.
David Cameron, the British PM, is also very loyal to the idea. Insanity reigns.
