USA: We do not seek to get rid of Assad

26
The special representative of the US State Department for Syria, James Jeffrey, said that Washington is not seeking to get rid of President Bashar Assad. At the same time, Jeffrey added that the United States is not going to invest in the Syrian Arab Republic until "there is a radical change in the regime."




Jeffrey says that Assad must make concessions and negotiate a comprehensive settlement with the opposition.

American diplomat quotes SkyNews Arabia:
We want to see a fundamentally different political system in Syria, but I’m not talking about regime change as such. We are not trying to get rid of Assad.


All these statements could be taken seriously if it were not for the “but” series. How many US invested in the economy of Libya after the invasion of NATO forces there and a violent change of power? And what about the guarantees of Viktor Yanukovych from American henchmen in Europe, when he was persuaded to make "concessions and agree with the opposition on a comprehensive settlement"?

According to Jeffrey, the United States calculated how much money would be needed to rebuild Syria. This is up to 400 billion dollars. After that, the US special representative for Syria reiterated that "the West will not finance the restoration of Syria until Damascus finds an acceptable political solution and changes its methods."

The same US official said Washington’s concern was the presence of Iranian troops and pro-Iranian armed formations in Syria. Jeffrey added that Israel is expressing a similar concern.

      As one place began to smoke. Now the United States has only one way out (in the wake of the previous course) to buy time, let it all calm down, and then gather all its forces into a fist and destroy Assad. Or maybe they’ll just liquidate him.

        Asal already amnestied tens of thousands of opposition and they are already actually participating in the political life of the country.

    In all statements of Americans, there is one small nuance - the words of the promise of the Americans are not worth anything!

    The United States, said Assad, throw yourself on our side, there will be nishtyaks ... We won’t hang like Hussein, we’ll give some more money .. Guaranteed security ... They said of course more diplomatically: [b

      Syria in the early 90s was already on the side of the United States in the fight against Saddam Hussein.

          Assad and Hussein hated each other. This explains everything. Although the Ba'ath party was in power in Syria and Iraq, the ideology was the same.

    USA: We do not seek to get rid of Assad — read the opposite, we will resist Assad and the Russians by all means.

    Jeffrey says that Assad must make concessions and negotiate a comprehensive settlement with the opposition.

    Apparently the concession should be an act of suicide?
    Washington is worried about the presence in Syria of Iranian troops and pro-Iranian armed forces

    And the presence of US troops in the territory of the SAR does not cause him concern? But it causes me ...
    I’ll go with him together at work (each on his own laughing ) we’ll be worried ... Well, apparently each of his own. laughing

    The United States is simply amazing ... translating into ordinary language, she comes to you and says that you are not sleeping correctly with your wife (not democratic) ... Despite the fact that she is not shy to show how exactly this should be done ... and that’s all with your wife.

    Either the United States is thinking about what to do with Syria, or is this another invitation to a dialogue.

    If the Americans invest in Syria, they will have some rights. But will Syria need this? Where there are no Americans, there are no problems. You can not allow the United States to Syria for any money.
