"Ultimately, a combination of diplomacy and pressure will be needed to bring about a political transition [in Syria]. Military pressure particularly may be necessary, given President Assad’s unwillingness to negotiate seriously." [U.S. Foreign Minister John Kerry, joint press conference with Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal, Riyadh, 5 March 2015]
Crimes Alert: U.S. Foreign Minister JohnKerry: “Military pressure may
be needed to remove Assad”
compiled by Cem Ertür, Syrian Free Press Network, 5 March
" [Syria] is being torn
apart by a leader who places his personal preservation ahead of the
preservation of the state or the preservation of all of the people of
his state. As President Obama and I have repeatedly made clear that we
don’t see how a man who has gassed his people; dropped barrel bombs on
children and on women, on schools; a man who has tortured more than
10,000 people, according to the evidence of photographs – how that
person can become a leader in the future is beyond our consideration or
capacity. He has lost any semblance of legitimacy.

John Kerry, joint press

But we have no higher priority than disrupting and defeating Daesh and
other terror networks in order to give the people of Syria the chance
that they deserve to recover and to build – rebuild their country.

bring about a political transition. Military pressure particularly may
be necessary, given President Assad’s unwillingness to negotiate
" [President Francois
Hollande] has underlined the necessity to work without respite to
re-launch the Geneva process for a political transition in Syria, which
is the only solution possible to bring together Syrian people, to meet
their legitimate aspirations, to eradicate the terrorist groups and to
re-establish peace in society. He has reminded that Bashar AL-ASSAD is
the main cause of his people’s suffering, and for the rise of terrorist
groups in Syria. He is therefore not a credible interlocutor to fight
against Daesh and prepare Syria’s future."

"Syrians should not be
forced to choose between the barbarity of Assad and the barbarity of
ISIL [DAESH]. Syria must be rebuilt by the moderate opposition.
[By conducting the operation
to relocate the Süleyman Shah mausoleum on February 22], we have
delivered the following message: If Turkey desires, it can instantly
penetrate 40 kilometres-deep into the Syrian territory. Had a single
attack taken place, then we would have turned the entire area from the
border until the [Süleyman Shah] outpost into an occupied military
zone. That was our plan B. Had the Syrian regime threatened us, had it
fired a single bullet, then the Regime would have become our target as
well. Now, Ashma [border village] has become our territory. Wherever
Süleyman Shah mausoleum is located, that territory belongs to us. Once
things settle down in Syria, then we will relocate the Suleyman Shah
[mausoleum] back to the vicinity of Jabar citadel [Qal’at

"Extremism – however
repugnant – is nurtured by ideology, and by alienation fed by years of
tyranny, corruption, repression, discrimination, deprivation and
neglect of the legitimate rights of communities.
Thus the vengeful
actions of the Syrian Government – whose campaign of violent repression
against what were originally peaceful protestors began four long years
ago – have now morphed into wave upon wave of pitiless assaults by all
sides. The [UN] Security Council, deadlocked by vetoes or threats of
vetoes, has been powerless to step in and alter this landscape of
destruction and bloodshed. The Syrian conflict has killed well in
excess of 200,000 people, and continues to kill more every day. It has
involved the torture and ill-treatment of countless others; forced
millions to flee; and deprived even more of the basic conditions for a
decent life, including the rights to education, food, healthcare and
