SONS OF MALCOLM: PRES ASSAD RESPONDS TO IF RUSSIA WOULD EVER SELL-OUT SYRIA

SONS OF MALCOLM: PRES ASSAD RESPONDS TO IF RUSSIA WOULD EVER SELL-OUT SYRIA | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"Interviewer: Mr. President, Russia is opposing the US and EU policies, especially with regards to Syria. What would happen were Russia to make a compromise now? Is such a scenario possible?

President al-Assad: Russian-American relations should not be viewed through the context of the Syrian crisis alone; it should be viewed in a broader and more comprehensive manner. The US presumed that with the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia was perpetually destroyed. After President Putin took office in the late 90s, Russia began to gradually recover and regain its international position; hence the Cold War began again, but in a different and subtler manner.

The US persisted on many fronts: striving to contain Russian interests in the world, attempting to influence the mentality of Russians closer to the West both in terms of culture and aspiration. It worked diligently to eliminate Russia’s vital and powerful role on many fronts, one of which is Syria.

This deafeningly hysterical show of Syria as Iraq 2.0 is only happening because a president of the United States (POTUS) created a ''credibility'' problem when, recklessly, he pronounced the use of chemical weapons in Syria a ''red line''. 

Thus the US government urgently needs to punish the transgressor - to hell with evidence - to maintain its ''credibility''. But this time it will be ''limited''. ''Tailored''. Only ''a few days''. A ''shot across the bow'' - as POTUS qualified it. Still, some - but not all - ''high-value targets'', including command and control facilities and delivery systems, in Syria will have to welcome a barrage of Tomahawk cruise missiles (384 are already positioned in the eastern Mediterranean).

SONS OF MALCOLM: SYRIAN SUICIDE FIGHTER-JET PILOTS 'READY TO LAUNCH SEVERAL FOR EVERY iMPERIALIST MISSILE DROPPED' | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Hmm. Russian warships amassing, Hizbullah threatening white settler zionist state, Iran threatening strikes, pro-Iranian militias ready to attack imperialist targets in Iraq, and now Syrian pilots ready for suicide missions. Not a very nice combination of forces in the face of possible imperialist bombing of Syria, whose ramifications I analysed here.  - Sukant Chandan, Sons of Malcolm


Syrian army may use kamikaze pilots against west, Assad officer claims
At least 8,000 suicide 'martyrs' ready to foil US warplanes hand-in-hand with Hezbollah and Iran, says regime loyalist

[source]

The Syrian air force is considering using kamikaze pilots against attacks by western forces, a Syrian army officer operating air defences near Damascus has claimed in an interview with the Guardian.

The officer said 13 pilots had signed a pledge this week saying they would form "a crew of suicide martyrs to foil the US warplanes".

The Assad loyalist, in his 30s and serving with the Syrian army's air defence section 10 miles from the capital, said: "If the US and British armies launch a single rocket we will launch three or four, and if their warplanes raid our skies they will face hell fire.

allAfrica.com: Libya: It's Time for Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi to Go to the Hague (Page 1 of 2)

allAfrica.com: Libya: It's Time for Saif Al-Islam Gaddafi to Go to the Hague (Page 1 of 2) | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

Doubts remain over whether Libya's national authorities will give Muammar Gaddafi's son a fair trial. He is wanted by the International Criminal Court.

Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, the son of the former Libyan leader, has been held under guard by a militia in Zintan in western Libya for close to two years, as the new Libyan authorities and the International Criminal Court (ICC) argue over who will try him. After failing in a bid to prosecute the ICC's allegations against Gaddafi, it's time for Libya to follow its legal obligations and turn him over to the ICC.

The ICC has issued arrest warrants for both Gaddafi's son and Abdullah Sanussi, Gaddafi's former intelligence chief. The stakes surrounding a decision about which court conducts any trial are high, but if conducted fairly, these proceedings offer the possibility to determine guilt or innocence over allegations of the gravest of international crimes. Summary proceedings - without proper investigations or due consideration of the facts - would squander a unique opportunity to demonstrate and strengthen its rule of law.

How the ICC became involved in Libya

On 26 February 2011, as government violence against peaceful protestors in several Libyan cities escalated, the United Nations Security Council, by a vote of 15-0, adopted Resolution 1970 to refer Libya's deteriorating situation to the ICC. Resolution 1970 requires the Libyan authorities to cooperate fully with the court, even though Libya is not a member. That obligation includes abiding by the court's decisions. Libya itself has promised to cooperate with the ICC and has openly acknowledged that it is bound by Resolution 1970

“The U.S.’s planned attack on Syria is a criminal act” - Vatican Insider

“The U.S.’s planned attack on Syria is a criminal act” - Vatican Insider | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it

"We must listen to the Pope's appeal for peace in Syria. If western countries want to create true democracy then they must build it on reconciliation, through dialogue between Christians and Muslims, not with weapons. This attacked being planned by the United States is a criminal act, which will only reap more victims, in addition to the tens of thousands of these two years of war. This will destroy the Arab world's trust in the West," Gregory III Laham, Patriarch of Antioch of the East, of Alexandria and Jerusalem of the Melkites told AsiaNews. His appeal comes “just a few hours after rumours of an imminent United States attack against Damascus. The intervention is supported by other countries: France, Great Britain, Turkey and the Arab League. The religious leader has sent out Pope Francis' August 25 appeal to all of Syria's parishes.”

Associated Press= AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Jordan will not be used as a launching pad for attacks on Syria and the kingdom favors a diplomatic solution to the crisis, a Jordanian government spokesman said Wednesday.

A U.S.-led strike on Syria in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by President Bashar Assad's regime would likely involve cruise missile attacks from the sea, which would not need to cross or make use of Jordanian territory.
