Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey, efter gårdagens dåd – Syria: Terrorists attempt to murder PM
The Syrian terrorists, backed by the FUKUS Axis (France, UK, US) have perpetrated a failed bomb attack against the Syrian Prime Minister, Wael al-Halaqi. Until what point will the West continue to cavort with murderers, rapists and torturers? Is this an ”ethical” foreign policy?
First they dismantled Yugoslavia, then they insolated and insulted the core of the Serbian nation by carving off Kosovo and virtually declaring it an independent state (when Kosovo is, was and always has been a province of the Republic of Serbia and is the birthplace of the Serbian nation). Afghanistan was next because it refused to allow the USA to build a pipeline transporting mineral resources from Central Asia to the Indian Ocean through Pakistan, then they attacked oil-rich Iraq based upon lies, then Libya because Colonel Gaddafy’s African policies were sending alarm bells ringing among the lobbies.
And now Syria, as a first step towards pushing Russia further away from the Mediterranean, as a last piece in the puzzle surrounding Iran, which if it follows, will become the final piece in the puzzle creating a vice-like grip around Russia’s throat. Then let’s guess who is next.
