Det här är väl en ganska sensationell rubrik! – Press TV – Saudi Arabia mulling over changing approach to Syria: Report
The consolidation of Syrian military’s positions across the country and the withdrawal of foreign-backed militants from their strongholds have fuelled speculations that Saudi Arabia is considering shifting its policy towards Syria, a report says.
A recent report released by the Lebanese As-Safir daily has suggested a likely withdrawal of Saudi Arabia from among the list of foreign states that are funding and supporting the Syrian opposition.
The Saudi Prince Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah’s recent meetings with Syrian officials along with Jordanian intelligence officers seem to have provided apparent proof for the case.
The paper touches upon Riyadh’s worries over the intensification of the crisis across Syria and the Egyptian and Saudi foreign ministers’ willingness for a political resolution of Syrian crisis, which is deemed as a major shift in the two states’ stance on Syria.
Communication is currently under way between Riyadh and Damascus with an Egyptian security delegation visiting Syrian officials in the capital, according to the report.

Press TV – Syria lambasts West’s response to Bashar al-Assad’s plan
Syria has taken a swipe at the West for rejecting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s proposed plan for ending the ongoing violence in the country.
Syrian Information Minister Omran al-Zu’bi criticized the United States and its allies for calling for Assad’s ouster and rejecting his initiative ”before even having the time to translate it.”

Rodney Shakespeare kommenterar angående den video som det tipsades om i en kommentar här (till inlägget 18 dec) för ett tag sen – ‘Syrian Girl’ reveals truth behind Syria crisis
At present Syria has no debt from the IMF. It only has loans from friends such as Russia. It is therefore becoming a target for American and NATO aggression.
Let nobody make the mistake of thinking that national bank independence does not matter. If a country is free from foreign financial control, it can have an independent foreign policy.
Syria has laudably resisted the entry of foreign companies. The desire to make everybody the same is really a cunning way of preparing people for enslavement by the global elite and one world government. The cry of Free Syria is really the desire to Enslave Syria, and everybody else in due course.
John Robles – Syria must be defenseless for America to illegaly invade, Rated:XXX
The West continues to debate what the United States should do in Syria and the US what options it has to bring about another interventionist invasion yet is continuing to have problems in bringing about the conditions it needs to give the green light to military forces staged and waiting to pounce.
The arrogance of those debating the fate of Syria from thousands of miles away, as if they even have a right to in the first place, is mind boggling. Who told the United States that they are responsible for deciding the fate of Syria or the Syrian people? No one. Who told the United States that they have some right or some mandate under international law to “intervene” wherever they desire? No one. Yet that is what they are doing.
Why hasn’t the US invaded Syria yet? One reason is you and I. Every false flag plan they come up with, we are there to expose it. Every false and sanctimonious move they make to allow them to invade and rape another country we are there to document. We know they are funding terrorists and mercenaries and that the Syrian people themselves do not want America. Lastly Russia is stopping it, by giving the Syrian people what Libya and Iraq did not have, the tools and the ways and means to defend themselves and defend their country.
