Forum Post: RT News: Rare ASSAD Interview; ‘Syria faces not a Civil War, but Terrorism by Proxies’ (Video)

Posted 7 years ago on Nov. 9, 2012, 7:42 p.m. EST by Renneye (3874)

In an exclusive interview with RT, President Bashar Assad said that the conflict in Syria is not a civil war, but proxy terrorism by Syrians and foreign fighters. He also accused the Turkish PM of eyeing Syria with imperial ambitions.

Assad told RT that the West creates scapegoats as enemies – from communism, to Islam, to Saddam Hussein. He accused Western countries of aiming to turn him into their next enemy.

While mainstream media outlets generally report on the crisis as a battle between Assad and Syrian opposition groups, the president claims that his country has been infiltrated by numerous terrorist proxy groups fighting on behalf of other powers.

In the event of a foreign invasion of Syria, Assad warned, the fallout would be too dire for the world to bear.

The pro-Syria side should stop pushing for a "negotiated settlement." It only gives NATO's terrorists cover. There is no civil war, it is a straight out attack on the sovereignty of Syria.

N\ATO's spec ops have a terrible record from the start: firing over the heads of demonstrators towards the military, thus inviting fatal fire to be returned on the civilian demonstrators at the front, carrying out false flag terrorism in Homs and Houla and then turning around and blaming the Assad side, etc. It's not that our media is fooled, the lying newsliars are complicit.

Sigh of relief...It sure is relieving to know that others have a good understanding of how these groups 'roll out' and 'artificially escalate' war.

Had North American society been open enough to 'listen' to Gadhafi, or even read a variety of reporting about who Gadhafi was, I don't think there would have been any public support for going into Libya.

Good post Renneye, Agree.

Good Stuff. Did you see Mitt Romney in the Debate on Foreign Policy say there was a lot of Oppurtunity in Latin America ...sent shivers down my spine.

But you know Venezuela is probably okay for a while if the US is working on Syria, Libya, Iran, Iraq, Somalia, and Yemen.

I know they're busy, but, I don't know...

Here's one of the articles I'm reading tonight...

"Color Revolutions: Argentina Next?"


"Suspicion grows as Western criticism of Argentina’s nationalization and rebuffing of “rules of global finance” sharpens in tandem with street protests.

Underneath these unsubstantiated claims, lies the International Monetary Fund, and threats of sanctions aimed at Argentina’s turning away from the US Dollar and the Wall Street-London dominated international financial order."

I read yesterday that they're meddling in Ecuador now as well.

Geeez! 'They' just aren't going to stop!

You know if Al Queda was invited by CIA to Invade Libya and Syria ... could be that they attacked the US Ambassador in Bengazi to say thanks, but we'll take it from here. Kind makes sense in light of the Response from Hillary and Barak ... in that they were slow to release any details, talk about it, And we now know that CIA People were stationed right there In Bengazi near the Embassy.

[-] 1 points by ronniepaul2012 (214) 7 years ago

MA...Benghazi was NOT an embassy or consulate. It was a large CIA mission or compound. Amb Stevens was there to meet with a Turkish diplomat on the sly. It appears it was a Middle East version of fast and furious/Iran Contra. We are arming the Syrian "rebels" via Turkey. THAT is why Obama let those Americans die. Their mission should they choose to accept it....the state dept will disavow any knowledge. This tape will self destruct in 5 seconds.

Many one this site are thrilled over 4 more years. I am looking for my bible to re read Revelation. The Mayan Calendar may very well not involve a polar switch....Obama ihas totally destablized the Middle East. I just hope we have 4 more years, no matter what a catastrophe they will be.

[-] 2 points by Middleaged (5140) 7 years ago

That has a Ring of Truth to it. I can't see putting an Ambassador into Libya at all that quick after a Revolution or Rebel Victory. Anyway even if ...well Ambassadors are read into Intelligence and operations. even if we did put the Ambassador there it was to protect the Oil contracts or get the New Central bank running.

But your Intelligence makes sense to me. We are always running some kind of operation in these countries ...and in this case most of us suspect we are running these rebelions or just running gun and weapons, or actively supplying plans and operations to the Rebels.

I did hear something to the effect that Northern Hemisphere Nuclear fall out doesn't rain down on the Southern Hemisphere. So may be safer in Paraguay or South America where the Elites are building compounds.

Russian TV has an exclusive with Assad. Wow. Who woulda thunk it.

Poor Assad. What a tough break for him. A day after the American election Britain announced new support for the anti assad forces.

Assad is in big trouble now. Election over, we're gonna kick his 30 thousand civilian killin ass!

Don't matter which puppetmaster puts him on TV.

After your 12,013 comments we don't know you?

I stand for human dignity, human rights and democracy which without a multi-polar world of nationstates would exit from the world. A one world government would create such a differential of power and wealth that we, the masses, would be no more than slaves.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 7 years ago

WRONG. Just as the States of North America came together, and the countries of Europe continue to unite.

Just as The US & Europe Have strengthened our bonds, there is an inextricable planetary evolution towards united governance that nobody can stop.

I'm sure none of us will live to see the "one world govt" but it will come inevitably, & when it does we will have eliminated all the various reasons to war, Resources will be shared fairly, Religion (fake!) will be relegated to the fairy tales it is, borders will be non existent.

We will not be slaves. We will be free. It will be the beginning of a progressive era that will benefit all peoples.

Ain'tcha never watched Star Trek? Sheesh!

That is the spin of a corporatist. Division is the name of the game. A world government would leave no room for exploiting 6 cent per hour labor in china, global communication between the population would go far toward exposing those who exploit and larger populations are harder for governments to control because as you see in Syria, the only way to fight the people is to destroy your own country. Lap dog.

[-] 2 points by nomdeguerre (1775) from Brooklyn, NY 7 years ago

You both want something that never has been and never will be: a just society with vast differentials in wealth and power. Your one world government would rule a slave planet, all labor would be at 6 cents an hour simply because the elite could enforce that - the alternative would be starvation.

From earlier comments:

I used to believe in the promise of one world government -- you know, John Lennon's Imagine and all that. Now I realize that the peace you & globalization promise would be the peace of the prison yard.

It would be a world without human dignity, run by the corporate efficiency principle. One country would produce palm oil, another beef cattle, etc. The citizens' desires would be meaningless, they would be directed what to do.

The power differential between the rulers and ruled would be so great that the ruled would in effect be slaves.

Furthermore I now believe there can be no meaningful democracy without national sovereignty, again due to the power differential. A one world government would degenerate into a world of sky people and mud people. We would be mud people.

Human nature is too corrupt to realistically hope that the NWO would be run by princes of justice. The corrupt and the ruthless would fight their way to the vast riches and power at the top -- and a prisonplanet would be the result. ↥twinkle ↧stinkle reply permalink http://occupywallst.org/forum/observations-from-mexico/#comment-575758

Well it's complicated, in point of fact a democratic society built on answering human needs as opposed to rule by corpoRAT profit, restoring the middle class, etc. dictate opposing globalization. However, OWS's hidden elite rulers, such as David Graeber, are all globalists.

We need to throw off Greaeber's protocols -- consensus decision making, etc. and make official OWS demands. An anti-globalization stance would be one of the main ones. ↥twinkle ↧stinkle reply permalink http://occupywallst.org/forum/anti-globization/#comment-839118

I am about as antiwar as it gets, but thugs do not belong in power, in the US or anywhere else. The world is rife with leaders who extort their national wealth while the people live in squalor and anyone who figures it out and speaks up is carried off to be tortured, killed, or just disappeared. That trend is now seeping into our own country, a trend which you protest. You people and your need to ride narrative over reality is sickening. Makes my stomach turn.

Gosh, look at the criminal, psycho thugs NATO put in power in Kosovo and Libya. I guess that was just some accident.

Wow. So you're one of those "the UN is taking over the world" folks. Bitch there are no-goods in every corner of society and the tactic of using them to discredit entire entities and institutions is a long failed practice. Americu has thieves, so we are a nation of thieves? You're a fucking idiot.

Don't it suck that when ever you say something that does not conform to standard American conspiracy theories, you become part of the conspiracy?

I have to say that such behavior and belief demonstrates a flaw in the First Amendment. You'd think in a nation with such a right, people would take a little time learning as much as possible before they opened their mouth. But here we are with little to no regulations on speech, and everybody is now entitled to their own facts. Ain't that a bitch?

[-] 1 points by richardkentgates (3269) 7 years ago

Not really. The beauty of free speech is that it allows others to see who is an idiot right up front. The truth always shines in the end.

I'm sorry but you fucking, jackass idiots have lost control of the narrative. Truth has the nasty habit of winning out in the end. I don't care how many higher degrees you have in information warfare, you are an idiot and a loser.
