Assad Speaks Truth to Power: ‘If you are worried about refugees, stop supporting terrorists!’

21st Century Wire says…


Watch a video of this report here:

Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad has dropped the following bombshell in a new interview with RT, where he well and truly drops the hammer on recent Western foreign policy decisions:

It’s not about that Europe didn’t accept them or embrace them as refugees, it’s about not dealing with the cause. If you are worried about them, stop supporting terrorists. That’s what we think regarding the crisis. This is the core of the whole issue of refugees.” 

“If we ask any Syrian today about what they want, the first thing they would say – ‘We want security and safety for every person and every family’.

If you want to implement anything real, it’s impossible to do anything while you have people being killed, bloodletting hasn’t stopped, people feel insecure.

I’d like to use our meeting today to address all parties in a call to unite in the struggle against terrorism. Only through dialogue and the political process can we reach political goals, that the Syrians should set for themselves.”

Assad’s comments echo those of Russia’s President Putin, who also just recently called out the West for fomenting the chaos that created ISIS. Others in the Russian government have labelled Western actions as ‘social engineering‘.

In response to the growing crisis, Russia now has boots and tanks on the ground in Syria seeking to eradicate ISIS. The problem this presents is that a confrontation between the West and Russia is now closer than ever in the post-Cold War world.

Any clear-thinking individual, no matter their political persuasion, should now be able to understand that President Assad is an infinitely better option than a Syria controlled by ISIS; where the Hobbesian dystopia of a nasty, brutish and short life would be guaranteed for all.

With such a growing opposition to Western actions, will things finally start to change?
