“Western and European embargo is complimentary with the destruction and attacks of the terrorists in pushing people to leave their country”
My personal experience is a couple of Syrian refugees I have met at work here in Sweden, claiming that there is a lot of lies in Western newspapers about the Syrian government. That was one of those eye-opening experiences not to accept information as a fact only because it is widespread and repeated numerous times.
Syria is a sovereign country. It is merely the Syrian, not the European or American matter to choose the president.The Syrian people are to decide who goes and who stays.
Putin has stated that there needs to be a new global platform of international relationships built on respect for national sovereignty. Russia and their allies are watching the conduct of ISIS and how they are supplied and financed. Russia, Iran, and the BRICS-aligned Nations ( = Brazil (?), Russia, India, China and South Africa) stand with Assad. The consequence of eliminating Assad is some kind of reaction of these countries. That would profit the arms industry even more than warmongering and the story of Russian aggression has done.
Assad has his wrong-doings.
But in western media we never read about the positive effects of Assad’s Presidency in Syria:
The Freedom of Religion
Syria has experienced a high degree of acceptance and camaraderie among a diverse number of religious communities. It has made Syria a safe place for Christians to live side-by-side with Sunnis and Shiites. At present there is no other safe place for Christians in the Middle East.
Maintaining the independency of Syrian state and economy
Big western corporations do not want nation states to exist because they protect their country from globalism.
“The more delay you have, the more harm and destruction and killing and blood you’ll have within Syria, that’s why we are very eager to achieve a solution, but how and in which way? You need to have two parallel ways: the first one is to fight the terrorists, and this is our duty as government, to defend the Syrians and use any means in order to destroy the terrorists who’ve been killing and destroying in Syria. The second one is to make dialogue. This dialogue has many different aspects; you have the political one, which is related to the future of Syria; what political system do you need, what kind? It doesn’t matter which one, it depends on the Syrians, and they’re going to have referendum about what they want. The second part is to try to bring many of those people who were affiliated to the terrorists or who committed any terrorist acts to go back to their normality and lay down their armaments and to live normal life in return for amnesty that has been offered by the government, and we’ve been going in that direction for three years, and it worked very well. It worked very well. So, actually, if you want to talk about the real political solution since the beginning of the crisis, of the war on Syria, till this moment, the only solution was those reconciliations between the government and the different militants in Syria, many of them joined the government now, and they are fighting with the government. Some of them laid down their.”
