John Kerry had no illusion about what kind of government Assad ran; when he co-sponsored the Syria Accountability Act in 2003 he said,:
The Syrian government has historically ruled by methods such as torture, arbitrary arrest and detention, prolonged detention without trial, and limits on freedom of speech and the press.
Yet he bet on that government and he clung to the hope that Assad would survive, and with him, all those plans the two of them had made together, long after the revolution against his rule had begun. In June 2012, Klein Halevy, a Jerusalem-based contributor to the
, recounted a
meeting she had with Kerry in 2011: New
Last year, I was part of a group of Israelis who met in
with Massachusetts Senator John
Kerry. Mr. Kerry had just come from Jerusalem Damascus
with excellent news: Bashar al-Assad was ready for peace with . When
one of the participants mentioned that demonstrations had begun to challenge
Mr. Assad’s legitimacy, Mr. Kerry’s response was: All the more reason to
negotiate while he’s still in power. Israel
That was then and this is now. Clearly Assad's "still in power" days are numbered. I'm sure John Kerry and everyone else in the Obama administration realize that now. They refused any military aid to Assad's opposition and even did their best to deny them heavy weapons, but that has only delayed, at great human costs, the inevitable defeat of the Assad regime.
One of reason terrorist Assad release large of al-Quad from jail, a massive media propaganda of attacking the FSA revolutionary and Opposition as a bunch of terrorist. We are hoping Mr Kerry should be wise, the world watching, US hard to escape its moral obligation to the Syrian people! Terrorist Assad propaganda of condemning FSA revolutionary are all extremist probably referring his very own al-Qaeda, he always had his own, sent them to
Iraq too. As was warned, the conflict is radicalized
which is happening! Predictably yes some
Jihadists groups on the ground, foreigners are small monitory, majority of them
are Syrian, these people are matter of
fact as, association with jihadist accessing weapon and resources within many
reason to protect their family themselves their revolution. With terrorist there
will be no future Syria
and the region. If US open heart to Syrian people, there will be a great relationship
with Syria and US that any
problems can be solved i.e. Israel.
When US and west come to aid FSA with
arms, there won’t be al-Qaeda problems. I must say clearly some of interview in
media have been bit of out of characters, you wonder where they belong to, and
clearly terrorist Assad has his very own al-Qaeda in his camp. Called a
slaughter house butcher “ dear friend?” don’t kidding yourself!
