Re: Syria Crisis: Obama warns Assad faces "consequences" if he uses chemical weapons

I met a wonderful Syrian family from Aleppo here in Vancouver and they basically confirmed things I had suspected. Of course, there are many different Syrian stories, this is only one. They offered some perspectives about rural elements fighting urban elements and basically betrayal of the western media. They don't support Assad but claim he is not a monster and that he can't control the situation. And they support regular Syrian Army against the opposition. Their old folks stayed in Syria, they are out of Aleppo, moved to a place close to the Russian naval base, which speaks for itself. They were a thriving family back in Aleppo, they only and truly wish to get back home. She is an architect and he is a dentist with two small kids. It's not easy for them to have those two particular careers here in Canada, no matter how good professionals they may be.

I still have slightly more sympathy for al-Qaeda than for Hillary, though.

Assad interviews are always amazing, just calmly explaining how in fact the exact opposite of what Western media are telling us is true.

Question 6: So, can we say that the US strike changed your opinion on Trump?

President Assad:
Anyway, I was very cautious in saying any opinion regarding him before he became President and after. I always say let’s see what he’s going to do, we wouldn’t comment on statements. So, actually, this is the first proof that it’s not about the President in the United State; it’s about the regime and the deep state or the deep regime in the United States is still the same, it doesn’t change. The President is only one of the performers on their theatre, if he wants to be a leader, he cannot, because as some say he wanted to be a leader, Trump wanted to be a leader, but every President there, if he wants to be a real leader, later he’s going to eat his words, swallow his pride if he has pride at all, and make a 180 degree U-turn, otherwise he would pay the price politically.

So the US strike that reportedly by both the Syrian and Russian governments will actually lead to strengthening the terrorists hands has in actual effect led to this, oh were they telling the facts? No doubt the terrorists fealt they were on the winning side after the tragic US intervention with cruise missiles. There's a time people need to think about what is right and what is wrong rather than all the flag waving populism we are fed. This is shit what is happening and being supported right now, Trump is a peadophile terrorist of the worst order, he's getting a kick from this no doubt.

- Kurds are fighting for their national emancipation, this is a powerful and lasting idea.
- They paid already with rivers of blood in the entire region, who will tell them they will have to keep quiet now?
- They are the largest ethnic group in the world without their own state.
- They are allied with the US right now, and also have support of Russia.
- Peace in the region is difficult without some sort of settlement for the Kurds.
All of those were also true 10 years ago – except the bolded part.
It will be very hard negotiations, many anticipate.
