Interview in English with President Assad of Syria. It is 18 minutes long. Please watch.
"This is the problem with the American position. They think they are the police of the world. That they are the judge of the world. They are not."
President Assad as always giving a great interview while being questioned by yet another reporter who seems to know nothing of the realities on the ground there.
This is the most critical point for Americans to understand. Just because a group claims to want "freedom and democracy" doesn't mean they WANT freedom and democracy!!!
EVERY armed group in Syria fighting against the government has stated their desire for an Islamic state instead of a secular government. They have ALL imposed harsh sharia law wherever they've "liberated" areas in safe and secular Syria. They have all beheaded, raped, kidnapped, and looted. They have all used suicide bombers, car bombs, mortars etc to wage terrorist attacks against civilians, schools, hospitals. And many of the militant leaders and fighters are foreign nationals from over 80 other countries.
This is why Syrians call all armed militants terrorists...because they are.
