The UN Security Council's push for a human corridor in Syria, which critics say could bring military intervention, has sparked protests in Germany. About 1,000 people gathered in Frankfurt demanding an end to foreign meddling in the Syrian conflict.

­A crowd of around 1,000 people have gathered in front of the Opera House in Frankfurt to demonstrate against foreign military intervention in Syria. They waved the flags of the Syrian government and signs with photos of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

They shouted slogans in favor of the president and his Baath Party.

A small group of anti-Assad protesters also appeared at the scene, prompting police to move in and separate the groups.

But the majority of the people came to the square to voice their support to the government and speak against military intervention, RT’s Peter Oliver reported from the scene.

“We are here to expose the lies about Syria that are being shown to the rest of the world,” one of the protesters told RT. “The dead that are being shown were killed by terrorists and blamed on Assad. They are sponsored by NATO, the US, Turkey and Qatar.”

Regarding to the above comment, I strongly object to the views the role of the United States in Japanese politics. Whie the US influences are strong there, the United States has hardly ever done anything against the wishes of the people there in the region. There have been no airstrikes nor any skirmishes in East Asia for that reason for quite some time.

Granted the war-prone Washington has ambitions to rule the nations particulary with resources, your accusation against the US trying to provoke a war ignores the fact that the region has maintained the peace for some time perhaps since the Vietnam war.
