Re: Interventionist Regime Change War
I commend your strong defense of Israel during your recent news conference regarding your observations of the UN Security Council’s anti-Israel bias.
Notwithstanding, it is not entirely clear that your comment that Assad is responsible for the “slaughter of hundreds and thousands of citizens” is accurate given that the West’s funding of terrorist groups within Syria for purposes of regime change left his government no option but to
look to Russia and Iran for assistance.
And it is within this cauldron that the ravages of war have occurred.
Please, I encourage you to undertake a more nuanced analysis of this matter versus the broad brushed approach of so many within the US government and security community.
A few questions that should be addressed are: Why would Assad kill his own people including innocent women and children? And why would he destroy his own country’s infrastructure including water systems, power plants, hospitals, schools and roads?
I don’t buy it nor should you...
I mean, after all, who would replace Assad, some collectivist government dubbed a "democracy" by the UN or, just as bad, a Muslim Brotherhood regime? Besides, the last thing the people of Syria want is imposed regime change because there is no moderate opposition. So if Assad is overthrown, it would just degenerate into another Iraq or Libya. They have the right to determine their own future.
In any case, once-for-all, the American people need to be presented with the facts of what really happened in Syria and not the CNN spoon-fed, tearjerker propagandized version.
