JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: ASSAD MUST GO: I DON’T THINK SO – JUST WHY AMERICA OPPOSES ASSAD   Leave a comment

COMMENT TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

 

Your headline does not reflect the facts.

Assad has agreed to elections in future.

That has been Russia’s position, and finally America has accepted that, dropping its absolute demand for his removal.

Who knows the outcome?

Assad remains a fairly popular figure with almost certainly a larger margin of support than David Cameron has.

Response to a reader about the reasons America wants Assad gone:

Getting rid of Assad has perhaps three key aspects.

1) Israel hates him, and Israel pretty much controls the American Congress.

2) Assad is too independent of America’s policy line on a number of things. Just that fact never goes

down well in the Evil Empire.

3) One important policy he opposes is America’s wish to build a gas pipeline through Syria from Qatar.
