Efter t.ex. Kerrys uttalande som finns i gårdagens inlägg och artikeln i Washington Post nedan behöver det väl inte råda någon oenighet om att utländska makter stöder och beväpnar de lego-krigare som ligger bakom de ohyggliga lidandena som Syrien och dess befolkning utsatts för de senaste åren. Mairead Corrigan-Maguire, i det tredje citatet nedan, påminner om att det strider mot FN-bestämmelserna att ge stöd och vapen åt grupper i andra länder i syfte att störta regeringar! Och följdaktligen borde diskussionen handla om det som Syriens premiärminister säger, att de som ligger bakom förstörelsen av Syrien borde betala skadestånd.
Damascus Demands War Reparations: “Countries Which Ruined Syria Must Compensate”: Syrian Deputy PM
Syrian Deputy Prime Minister Qadri Jamil says countries that have participated in Syria’s crisis must compensate for the destruction they have brought to the Arab country.“We must not forget that Syria is a country rich in resources. Clearly, however, after all this destruction, its own resources are insufficient for reconstruction. Thus, one must mobilize private funds and additional resources, including form of compensation. It is natural that countries that have destroyed Syria must compensate,” Jamil said in an interview with the Russian TV channel Russia Today (RT) on Monday.The Syrian deputy prime minister pointed the finger at Turkey, accusing the country of looting Syria’s industrial hub, Aleppo.

voiceofrussia.com – Friends of Syria report: hidden threats to return to military scenario – Lukashevich
Final document of Friends of Syria meeting contains ”poorly hidden threat” to return to military scenario, which is unacceptable, says Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Alexander Lukashevich in his statement.
“We looked at the results of a meeting in London of eleven countries, the so-called “nucleus” of the so-called “nucleus” of the Friends of Syria group, including the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey, and the Syrian National Coalition led by Ahmad Jabra,” Lukashevich says.
He sees the final document passed at the meeting as “an attempt to revise the key elements of the Geneva Communique.”
“Before the London meeting, we had been assured that discussion would not overstep the framework of the Geneva Communique, yet it went far beyond the frames of both the above communique and the May 7 Russian-American initiative to convene an international conference on Syria,” the spokesperson states.

Press TV – Syria crisis resolution must come from Syrians: Shaath, Interview with Saab Shaath
Shaath: During the conference where the British foreign minister was talking a journalist asked him a question, which exposed the whole thing. He asked earlier on today he was saying we are going to be left with dealing with Assad or the radicals of al-Qaeda – for Kerry and the opposition that they can put themselves together and form a delegation to join the Geneva Two. So, that sent a message.
The West and the United States of America and even that camp (opposition) knows on the ground they have two forces: the government of Syria and its army fighting terror, which is al-Qaeda and the Iraqi-affiliated …militants they call al-Nusra Front who are supported by Saudi Arabia and Turkey.
And you see in the news that these parties are with the United States of America. So, this is what they find themselves facing right now the height of traumatic terror, which they have to deal with.
So, Assad on the other hand – I saw his interview yesterday on Syrian TV station, he was very comfortable victorious man in his own skin when he’s talking about the strategies and talking about what’s happening and the future Syria and Geneva Two.
And he emphasized on two points, which he is going to stand when the time comes for the election, that the election in Syria or the resolutions to the Syrian crisis has to come from Syrians. That showed very strong leadership, winning the battle on the ground. …
