A Conversation With Bashar al-Assad :  Information Clearing House - ICH





So what do you
think Israel’s agenda is?


They are supporting the rebels in Syria.
It’s very clear. Because whenever we make
advances in some place, they make an attack
in order to undermine the army. It’s very

can you say that al Qaeda doesn’t have an
air force? They have the Israeli air force.”

Honesty should lead us to
concede, I think, that we understand little
more today about these matters than the
Spanish physician-philosopher Juan Huarte

scope of human understanding, or whether
they fall among what Hume took to be
Nature’s ultimate secrets, consigned to
“that obscurity in which they ever did and
ever will remain.”

- Has Russia’s Vladimir Putin pulled Barack
Obama’s chestnuts out of the fire for a
second time?



Will the shaky cease-fire in Ukraine that
began this weekend hold up and end a
conflict that was threatening a nuclear war
between the United States and Russia?

have used chemical weapons rather than the
Damascus regime.



Noble Peace Prize Winner Obama and his lady
strategists almost got the US into a war in
Syria that could have led to direct clashes
with Russia, whic…

substantial evidence that senior U.S.
officials were pushing for a “regime change”
in Kiev, including

an
intercepted phone call
and
various public statements.


In December 2013,
Assistant Secretary of State Victoria
Nuland, a neocon holdover, reminded
Ukrainian business leaders that the United
States had invested $5 billion in their
“European aspirations.” In early February,
she discussed with U.S. Ambassador Geoffrey
Pyatt who the new leaders of Ukraine should
be. “Yats is the guy,” she declared,
referring to Arseniy Yatsenyuk. [See
