Assad Interview

#1 Post by k.d. » Thu May 10, 2018 1:09 pm

Meeting with Donald Trump would be pointless because the deep state – not the president – controls the US, Bashar Assad said in an interview. He noted that the agenda of the deep state is to create conflict aimed against Russia.

In an exclusive interview with Athens daily Kathimerini, Assad said there was no reason to meet face-to-face with Trump, since the US president “says something today, and does the opposite tomorrow,” and is likely not even in control of policy decisions.

“[W]e don’t think the president of that regime is in control,” Assad told the paper, referring to Trump. “We all believe that the deep state, the real state, is in control, or is in control of every president, and that is nothing new. It has always been so in the United States, at least during the last 40 years, at least since Nixon, maybe before, but it’s becoming starker and starker, and the starkest case is Trump.”

Assad also dismissed the possibility of a third world war breaking out in Syria, telling the Greek newspaper that Moscow’s levelheadedness has so far prevented a catastrophic escalation – even as the US aims to expand the conflict. Asked directly if he was concerned about the possibility of a third world war, Assad replied: “No, for one reason: Because fortunately, you have a wise leadership in Russia, and they know that the agenda of the deep state in the United States is to create a conflict. Since Trump’s campaign, the main agenda was against Russia, create a conflict with Russia, humiliate Russia, undermine Russia, and so on,” the Syrian president said.

Assad ended the interview by vowing to reunify Syria and restore its sovereignty, adding that the US, France, UK, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey are ultimately responsible for the seven-year war and must be held accountable for supporting “terrorists” fighting in Syria.

Agree:
There will be no world war breaking out in Syria. US and Russia will sit and watch, jumping in only at times when it's politically expedient.

Trump won't meet with Assad. We don't negotiate with Arabs, the base would not stand for it. They have been fully conditioned to believe them all as terrorists.

Disagree:
Russia is not an honorable actor in this.

Syria will not reunify. It will be in perpectual war. Nobody cares about Syria. Both Israel and Iran attacked Syria and Stormy is still the top story today.

Trump is fully in command of the "Deep State". But, I'm not sure what the "Deep State" means anymore. The term is now being used to describe the media :?

Except we meet with Saudi Arabia, the country where most of the 9/11 terrorists came from.
Russia is not an honorable actor in this.
Russia was invited into Syria while the U.S is there illegally.
Trump is fully in command of the "Deep State".
Not hardly. The 'deep state' /'shadow government' has been in control since they got away with assassinating JFK.

Points taken. But .....

Although Russia is technically there legally, their purposes are every bit as nefarious the US'. And for the same purposes. Syria is just "low hanging fruit" to them.

While there are political factions hanging on from administration to administration, I don't there is anything going on that doesn't have the blessing of very top of the chain.

Russia was invited in, the U.S was not. Russia is an ally, the US is not. Only one has a nefarious intention - clearly it is the US.
