The conflict ravaging Syria is not a civil war but a war on terror, the country’s Deputy Prime Minister said today in his turn at the rostrum at the high-level debate that opens the annual session of the United Nations General Assembly, explaining the regimen view of the situation.
Tell us about something you think is terribly unfair.
It’s not fair that UN Security Council members that have fought (diplomatically) and therefore delayed and blocked resolutions to try to stop the war in Syria for a long time are not giving the humanitarian aid compromised to help the people affected.
Answering a question about how to avoid an attack, John Kerry opened a door on Syria and Russia immediately put on the table a proposal to destroy Al Assad chemical weapons. Obama said that “If we can accomplish this limited goal without taking military action, that would be my preference.”
Syrian president Bashar Al Assad said to the French daily Le Figaro that “there is a risk of regional war” after the first strike on his Country.
President Obama announced he had decided that the United States should take military action against Syria in response to a deadly chemical weapons attack, but that he would seek Congressional authorization for the use of force.
President Obama said he has not made a final decision about what action will take on Syria an that it won’t involve troops on the ground. Here are his remarks about the situation.
War or more war. These are the options for the Syrians right now. Nobody with power to do so is offering peace. They have a horrible war going on and an international community divided between two options: a military intervention or do nothing and let the war go on and on.
