Intervju med journalisten Neil Clark på Russia Today – ‘The West wants to install a puppet regime in Syria’
RT: If Western states begin official arms supplies, wouldn’t nations that back the Syrian government have the right to do the same?
NC: Oh, absolutely, but this hypocrisy has been absolutely glaring. We had [British Foreign Secretary]William Hague, and then we had French leaders and the Americans claiming that Iran is backing Syria.

What it cares about is a new government in Damascus which would privatize the entire economy and cut links with Iran and Hezbollah and allow the move against Iran to take place, because it is all about paving the way for war against Iran.
