- Assad Deserves Universal Support Against US-Sponsored Terrorism

Syria is Obama’s war, launched with imported terrorist foot soldiers to gain America another imperial trophy – while eliminating an Israeli rival and diminishing Russia’s regional influence.
Protecting Syria’s sovereign independence is crucial. If it goes, Iran is isolated. Its turn awaits. It’s forthrightly aiding its Syrian ally, US imperialism their enemy, humanity’s scourge. America is the greatest threat to world peace, stability and security.
Addressing Syrian parliamentarians on Tuesday, Assad vowed to continue combating terrorism, an entire nation and its people at stake. He explained Syria’s newly elected People’s Assembly is different from previous ones. Voters openly, freely and fairly elected representatives enduring years of war, violence and human misery – Syrians united against imperial forces wanting their country destroyed and partitioned.
US-led dark forces want Syria’s constitutional order eliminated. According to Assad, “(t)hey believe that the core of their political scheme after their plot of terrorism failed was to hit the constitution…creating chaos” – letting ISIS and other terrorists take over, later claiming they transformed themselves into (nonexistent) moderates. Unity against foreign intruders foils their agenda. Controlling a country requires compliant citizens.
When Washington and its rogue allies failed to achieve their objectives, “their response was an open declaration of supporting terroris(ts)” falsely called moderates, said Assad, breaching ceasefire terms, turning peace talks into a farcical exercise.
