Moscow Urges West to Tone Down Anti-Assad Rhetoric

These Islamist terrorists are the darlings of the West… they’ve pledged to massacre the Alawis and drive out the Christians… remember that when you hear Victoria Nuland’s honeyed words. She’s a protégé of Strobe Talbott and Richard Holbrooke… the Butchers of the Balkans… ask any Serb. Do you want a repeat of the Kosovo fiasco?

On Friday, Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said that Western allegations that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s régime is illegitimate are unacceptable. He observed that the anti-Assad stance is unlikely to foster a peaceful settlement in the conflict-torn country, saying, “In our view such opinions are counterproductive, as they give a false signal to the opposition that there’s no reason to engage in dialogue, that it’s better to expect help from NATO and the West, as was the case in Libya. We believe that this scenario’s absolutely inadmissible and it’ll have grave consequences for Syria and the stability of the situation in the region”. He also condemned Saudi Arabia’s recent decision to shutter its embassy in Syria, saying the move’s at odds with the general concept for easing the situation in the country. On Friday, four member states of the Persian Gulf Cooperation CouncilQatar, Kuwait, Oman, and the UAE… announced that they’d withdraw their diplomats from Damascus. Earlier this month, Bahrain, also a member of the Persian Gulf Cooperation Council, recalled its diplomats from Syria.
