The US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson gave Russia an ultimatum. Side with the US and like-minded countries on Syria, or embrace Iran, the militant group Hezbollah and Syrian leader Bashar Assad.
AS he left for Moscow following the urgent meetings in Italy with some top diplomats, Tillerson mentions that it was unclear whether Russia had failed to take seriously the obligation to rid Syria of chemical weapons, or had merely been incompetent. But he said the distinction “doesn’t matter much to the dead.”
“We cannot let this happen again,” Tillerson said.“We at to relieve the suffering of the Syrian people. Russia can be a part of that future and plan an important role, or Russia can maintain its alliance with this group, which we believe is not going to serve Russia’s interest longer term.”
Since the US launched airstrikes, the Trump Administration officials have present mixed messages as to whether Washington believes Assad must surrender power, and when. Tillerson stated that it was clear the US saw no role for Syria’s future.
“It is clear to all of us that the reign of the Assad family is coming to an end,” he said. “But the questions of how that ends and the transition itself could be very important in our view to the durability, the stability inside of a unified Syria.”
Destabilizing Syria and changing a regime sounds like a horrible idea for Trump. His supporters won’t support that and he will undoubtedly lose the next election if he creates a ground war at the behest of the globalists who still reside in Washington.
The Syrians know that Assad is bad, but ISIS is worse. Anyone that knows what ISIS is and what they stand for will choose Assad over ISIS 100 times out of 100. Be careful President Trump.
