Hysteria around chemical attack suits those who want military intervention in Syria - Lavrov

26.08.2013 11:43

Following last week’s chemical attack, the West has engineered a media campaign to facilitate a military incursion, says Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. The minister also cast doubts on the veracity of US and European claims about the incident.

The US can bomb Syria like it did Bosnia and stop the killing. How quick you people forget how the US, Britain and NATO stopped the massacre of Muslims in Bosnia. So history will repeat itself and we will be victorious again


Wr ong, again! You've been duped again by the CNN/C-SPAN/Christian ne Ampour- tainted view of that conflict. Check out John Pilger for the TRUTH of Serbia and the false claims by the US media moguls. Guess which theocratic state--it has no defined borders-- set up an organ-trafficking cabal after the fall of Serbia.

This sounds a lot like Kosovo, 1999 ...

Russia needs to have more agressive stance just like North Korea because that´s the language the US understands. If Russia contunues with diplomacy all the time, will lose their strategic ally Syria in Middle East. Russia, please stop this soft talk!!!

I too am Canadian and a veteran and fully share your sentiments. The hypocrisy of the West is so shamefully transparent that one wonders how these so-called leaders of ours can look themselves in the mirror.

WHY can't China or India ever help with LONG TERM peace. China, you have a massive army, why can't you communicate with Russia and help with a plan. (Help the United States pass GLASS STEAGALL please. In a peaceful way.) The President has no reason to bomb Syria, unless there is a long term plan which Russia and China can help in someway. Obama, Start with the end in mind!!! Everyone pray for peace.

to Leon, Leon, Leon - you sound like a broken record. If you're going to use the term Zio(nist) in any context make sure you emphasise that you're not referring to average Israeli / Jewish people. I am not Jewish, but too many use your terms as a broad all-encompassing brush stroke to stir up anti-Semitism. (Semites originally included Arabs by the way). You should be more concerned about the globalist banksters - who control almost everything because they control the money govts need - and 99% of govts are in deficit - toi the banksters.

despite propaganda lies the true reason is obvious. The gas is a message to people of Aleppo and Deir Zur. It is classic ba'ath. Just like Saddam with the kurds. "We will gas the civilians if you do not surrender".

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov should open a training programme for his Western counterparts like Secretary of State John Kerry and Foreign Secretary William Hague and teach them some kind of politics because they are lying about use of chemical weapons in Syria.

The only way to stop this madness of politics created by a dual citizens of USA is to detere them with nuclear wepons..they got much more to lose..

Remember the fact finding mission early on from the Arab League on the Syrian conflict. That mission did a good job indentifying a third invisible party involved in instigating atrocities among demonstrators and state security personnel. As soon as it is clear that this mission does not serve the warmongers in the West camp they were pulled back. This group will not allow the UN inspectors to find the awful truth because they know it already. See the false flag operations typical for their modus operandi to start unjustifiable wars.

So far the world has not heard even one word from Putin, I hope he's not too intimidated by warmongers like Obama and Cameron. If Putin took zero action, Syria would be in the hands of US and Israel, then Iran will be next. I must say Russia and China have been showing the side of weakness by far that's why we're seeing such strong aggressions from US and UK toward Syria and Iran.


Steve Willis 27.08.2013 07:17

My question is what is Mr Lavrov going to do about this impending attack??. My guess would be nothing my country has a nasty habit of interferring in other states internal affairs and will continue unless checked, only Russia can do that.


Christopher Rushlau 27.08.2013 06:57

I would add to my previous remark that the best proof that these western nations are dying faster than they can kill their enemies is this proposed strike. "International norms" require "punishment&quo t;, say the bandits of the modern world. This is just crazy talk. At the heart of this cabal of heedless vigilantes is racist genocidal Israel. Well, you say, Israel has always been crazy since Theodor Herzl, and it hasn't hurt Israel. Look around you.
