Damascus Slams Trump Administration As “Rogue” & “Outlaw” Following Recent Comment On Assad

File image

Damascus has slammed the U.S. over President Donald Trump’s former plans to assassinate President Bashar al-Assad, accusing Washington of following the same methods as terrorist groups.

Trump revealed in a recent interview with Fox News that he had considered assassinating al-Assad in 2017 after reports of an alleged chemical attack. He was, however, persuaded not to go with the idea by senior US military officials, including former Secretary of Defense James Mattis.

A source in Syria’s Foreign Ministry told the Syrian Arab News Agency on September 16 that Trump’s statement showed the level to which the thinking and political behavior of the US administration had declined.

“Trump’s recognition of such step affirms that the US administration is a rogue and outlaw state and follows the same method of the terrorist organizations of killing and liquidation without any consideration to the principles or any legal, human, or ethical rules with the aim of achieving its interests in the region,” the source said.

In 2018, Trump denied claims by veteran journalist Bob Woodward that he had ordered the assassination of President al-Assad. Woodward covered the issue in his book “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

The U.S. cut its ties with Damascus after the 2011 uprising. Washington played a key role in backing anti-government armed groups and even carried out attacks on the Syrian military.

Nevertheless, this is the first time the U.S. officially acknowledges plans to assassinate the Syrian President. Such a move would have amounted to a war crime.

“The US administration is a rogue and outlaw state and follows the same

any consideration to the principles or any legal, human, or ethical
rules with the aim of achieving its interests in the region.”

People always seem to refuse to call the US for what it truly is…the King of terrorism. It truly makes me laugh to watch many accusing Iran, Hezbollah, etc of terrorism when none of them comes close to what the US is doing on a daily base. Better yet, combine all those so called terrorists together and still cannot match the evil of the USA.

People know this…they just need a kick in the butt to get them going. The United States of America is a sponsor of evil and no one comes close to their level of terrorism. No one!

United Satanic Anglozionists – the real Evil Empire & global terrorist organization spreading death and destruction all over the world: Belarus today, Bolivia, Venezuela, Ukraine, Syria, Libya, Iraq etc etc etc. endless list of their crimes, only last few years…
To quote China’s MoD: “The U.S. is the fomenter of regional unrest, the violator of the international order and the destroyer of world peace”.

Mike

Exactly!

To think Iran saved Hillarys life when her plane crashed after bengazi….
Long live Assad, mooching terrorist thieves, go home!

Obviously Iran didnt think ahead long term. A great strategic blunder.

Fog of War

In all fairness, during war a country can be utterly devastated and its people killed in mass, but its leader is off limits ? Where’s the logic in that. Also, I’m not asking this just in relation to Syria.

John

where is the declaration of war?

Fog of War

I dont know. Maybe its when you occupy another country illegaly, bomb its soliders and infrastructure , publicly arm and support its enemies, and constantly make statments about removing its government. Sounds like acts of war to me.

Also, where was the declaration of war when western SF troops helped sodomize and brutually kill Ghadaffi ?

trump fully reflects the American character—-shallow, fatuous, bombastic, insecure, cowardly
oboma worse

Tommy Jensen

When an American says he was thinking of killing somebody who used chemicals to kill children, but abstained because somebody said Assad also had feelings, this American is rough and an outlaw??

How many times have you guys not been thinking of killing somebody? Many times! But our President had the guts to say it, but whattabout you?
We Americans are the good guys because we are freeedom.

Jaime Galarza

Thank you for the laugh.
