Assad's regime defends itself against an international alliance that seeks his overthrow in violation of international law. Whoever wants to see Assad overthrown should answer the question whether we would rather see the Nusra Front in power.

War crimes alert: U.S. Foreign Minister: “Military pressure may be needed to remove Assad” (tags)
"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]
Flashback to 2001: President Assad to Prime Minister Blair:'Stop bombing Afghan civilians' (tags)
Reading the transcript of a joint press conference by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, which was held on the 25th day of the Anglo-American-led invasion of Afghanistan, makes it abundantly clear why another Anglo-American-led genocidal war had been launched against Syria nearly ten years later.

Flashback: President Assad: US seeks war on Iraq in order to redraw the map of Middle East (tags)
“We all know the masks that were used. At first the United States proposed the issue of the return of [weapons] inspectors [to Iraq]. Later, it spoke about the implementation of the UN and Security Council resolutions. It then spoke about the weapons of mass destruction. Later they said the problem lay in the regime itself. They then began to talk about democracy and human rights. Now they give the promise of development in Iraq and our region in general after this war. […] The [real] issue was that of taking control of the world and the region. The issue was one of oil and oil was one of the instruments used to control the world. The issue was one of re-drawing the map in the manner that suited them and, of course, suited Israel […]. The issue is one of destroying the infrastructure of Iraq” [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, speech at the Arab League summit, Sharm el-Sheikh, 1 March 2003. This speech was delivered three weeks before the invasion of Iraq.]
Flashback to 2003: "Major combat in Iraq is over, U.S. warns rogue Syria" (tags)

Lies in Translation: Der Spiegel's Media Interview Attack on President Bashar al-Assad (tags)
Der Spiegel's combative interview with President Bashar al-Assad has received significant worldwide media attention. We published the original text of the interview as translated into English by SANA, the Syrian Arab News Agency. Since then we have received Spiegel's English translation and found some gross differences between the texts. The interview can not only be viewed as an effort to villainize President al-Assad in lock-step with the western media. It also serves an effort to gather intelligence. In the face of the many crass personal insults and dishonesty, disrespectful of a head of state by the Der Spiegel "interviewers," President Bashar al-Assad maintained an impressive amount of self-control with thoughtful, rational replies. His dignity exposed the weaknesses in Der Spiegel's western political positions. The primates who conducted this shameful attack were simply out of their league.

ANOTHER DODGY DOSSIER: THE MEHLIS REPORT ON THE HARIRI ASSASSINATION (tags)
The Mehlis report on the Hariri assassination is just another dodgy dossier. In order to lay the blame for the assassination at Syria's door it specializes in innuendo and unverified allegations by anonymous persons. The only named individual purporting to possess information incriminating Syria turns out to be a multiply convicted swindler who was paid handsomely for his revelations by a Syrian dissident.
