Assad: U.S. ‘Not Serious’ About ISIS

1

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad slammed the U.S. military’s intervention in his country and lauded Russia’s ability to collaborate with his forces, in an interview with NBC News conducted this week. Assad said he’ll regain full control of his country within “a few months,” adding that Russian support has been “the crucial factor” in making progress against the Islamic State terror group. He added, “The Russian politics is not based on making deals—it’s based on values.”

This assessment is a stark contrast, he said, to the U.S. presence. “They’re not serious,” Assad said of the American government. He called “illegal” U.S. airstrikes against ISIS in the country “counterproductive” and ineffective. “The reality is telling that, since the beginning of the American airstrikes, the terrorism has been expanding and prevailing,” Assad said. “It only shrinked when the Russians intervened.” He added, “We wanted to defeat those terrorists, while the United States wanted to manage those groups in order to topple the government in Syria.” Read more at NBC NEWS.

  1. Use the Force, Assad. The trash pit you have managed to create in the world that you live is so ready for more trash minded expressions that even the palestinians might find it a good home. Maybe you solved Israel’s problem. The idiots who wanted to destroy the holy land might just have a place to lay their broken heads.

    Honestly, who could think that Assad has anyone other than G-d to thank that he is still alive. The world that he is timing is just his own removal from power. Our bombs were more than ready to go many years ago but Mr. Obama is too sympathetic of the poor guy to remove him as of yet.

    Time has no pace for the dungeons that want their own war. The world can see that the manager of life will indeed make the future more secure eased for the better of the future. Assad will easily leave office at the right day of Hashem’s plan.

    Need another cinder block?

    Shame to his own laugh.
