Noam Chomsky in an interview today with Al Akhbar Arabic said that "the main problem in the Syrian conflict is Russia who is arming the Syrian government while still inviting all sides to negotiations." He then praised the US who is "showing self-restraint, opposes arming the rebels and supports real negotiations."
Additionally, he said that "Israel does not oppose Assad and that he's almost the dictator they want who has done everything they have wanted." He said the "US does not oppose Assad who has collaborated with them, despite not completely liking him, what he has done is enough for US to let him stay." He based this analysis on the fact that Israel and US did not station troops in Golan to help the Syrian rebels which can only mean that they do not want the Syrian regime to fall.
He also condemned Hezbollah for aiding the Syrian Army on battles near the Lebanese borders and said that the Lebanese seem to be ignoring real threats of Israel implying it can easily wipe out the entirety of Lebanon soon if they wanted to.
Chomsky, like many other heavyweight intellectuals such as Tariq Ali and Finkelstein, is a senile academic who cannot see beyond his nose, a lazy celebrity professor who recycles his rhetoric for every conflict around the world without any consideration to geopolitics or even different circumstances, he wants to keep his mainstream image and his big monthly check and tenured position. He is also a closet-zionist.
