I stumbled on the above image whilst researching a post. It’s indicative of the ignorance of many Americans… they only know what their biased media feeds them (whether it’s Fox on the right or the NYT on the left, its American Hegemonist rubbish all the same). Don’t take it out on such people… they don’t know the truth, they only “know” about Russia what the American nihilist ruling class want them to “know”. That’s sad… remember what Our Lord said, “Forgive them, for they know not what they do”… indeed…
The Russian and US foreign ministers refused to take part in a special session of the UN Security Council convened by France on 30 August to discuss the Syrian crisis. France is the chairman of the UN Security Council this month. Vitaly Churkin, the permanent representative of the RF at the UN will represent Moscow. It’s still unknown who will represent the USA. Earlier, the Americans declared that they’d bypass the UN in the Syrian issue, justifying this by saying that Russia and China vetoed resolutions on Syria three times. British Foreign Secretary William Hague is also likely to refuse to take part in the session, so France may become the only first-level power amongst the countries involved in the upcoming discussion on a Syrian settlement.
Diplomatic circles hinted that the idea of adopting a final document has already failed, it happened during the preparations for this special session. Russia and China insisted on emphasising the need to assist Syrian refugees and calling both sides in the conflict to stop the bloodshed. France, the UK, and the USA, on their part, pressed for adopting a political declaration predicated on Bashar al-Assad’s speedy resignation. It is clear that Moscow and Beijing would never allow the Security Council to adopt such a declaration, as they believe that this would be intolerable, it’s set a precedent of interference in Syria’s internal affairs.
Analyst Vladimir Isayev from the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences believed, “Looking ahead at the special session on Syria, the standoff in the UN Security council appears hopeless. France’s attempt to convene the UN Security Council is actually misfiring because it looks like the Council will be in no position to make any decision. This was clear from the very beginning; the opinions of the sides are well-known, they are poles apart. Logically, if there are any attempts to adopt any resolution or declaration, the opposing side will block it. In fact, we can see France’s attempt to draw attention to the Syrian problem once again, but the Syrian problem is so acute that it remains the first priority as it is. For example, it seems that Iran is hinting that it’d send its armed forces to Syria. According to other sources, British special operations units are as good as fighting on Syrian territory. This intel is still unproven, but pressure on Syria continues. The UN Security Council turns out to be helpless in the context of a harsh opposition between the conflicting parties”.
Recently, US President Barack Obama warned about a possible incursion into Syria in case Damascus used chemical weapons. Paris and London supported this approach and coordinated a joint strategy of fighting for Assad’s resignation. They also agreed to provide more support to the Syrian armed opposition, which is bound to trigger a new spiral of contradiction with Moscow. One can say the same about French President François Hollande’s announcement that France is ready to recognise Syria’s interim opposition government.
Meanwhile, Russia continues its attempts to find a solution to the Syrian crisis. Reports say that Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will discuss the Syrian problem with his US counterpart Hillary Clinton during the APEC conference in Vladivostok next week. Ms Clinton will also discuss the Syrian problem with Chinese Foreign Minister Yang Jiechi in Beijing between the 4 and 5 September.

THIS illustrates HH‘s stance towards Syria… any questions? You see, if the American-backed oppositionists win, there’s going to be a massacre of Christians, Jews, Shiites, and Alawis that’ll make anything seen to this point inconsquential. That’s why Russia opposes the American warmongers and their sockpuppets… and it’s in the right.
It’s clear that both Neocon Republicans and Interventionist Democrats are itching to install an Islamist dictatorship in Damascus, just as they did in Kosovo, just as they did in Afghanistan, just as they did in Iraq. Orthodox Christians should bear in mind that Orthodox Christians and “orthodox” Muslims get on very well together, and have for centuries (Syria being a salient example of such). In Syria, the oppositionists are bloodthirsty Islamists bent on the murder of Christians, Jews, Shiites, and Alawis.
THEY DO NOT REPRESENT MAINSTREAM ISLAM.
Note well that the USA, both Republicans and Democrats, support the Islamists all over the world, as one saw in Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and the “Arab Spring”… oh, by the way, the Islamists are supported by the Americans to destroy local socialist governments. The US news media never says a peep about that. In fact, the vision of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan was far closer to American values than that of the Taliban Neanderthals supported by the USA. In fact, the only real result of American intervention throughout the world has been to overthrow socialist states to replace them with One Percent lickspittle juntas.
Of course, Russia and China are too strong for the USA to invade… so, they’re constantly vilified and pilloried. Note well that Cuba stood tall against the USA… and it still exists as a socialist society. America had a chance to reach out a hand of friendship in the 90s, but bitter rightwing Cuban émigré rotters in Florida tilted the Republican Party and the American intel establishment (where so many Batisteros found employment after the defeat of the American client junta by Castro) against a responsible and reasonable approach to Cuba. Yet, little Cuba stands tall… and I should remind my Orthodox readers that HH SUPPORTS Cuba absolutely… not the USA.
In short, a great deal of what Americans “know” about the Syrian situation is self-serving dezinformatsiya… shall they find out the truth? God willing… for the truth WILL set you free.
