Russia’s sending mixed signals, she says. Russia looks after Russia. Syria has to look after Syria. That means dismantling Israel. Brinkmanship is a more peaceful way than diplomacy, she claims. Take North Korea as an example. Diplomacy is not a language the US government understands. They respond to threats.
Lavrov has said Russia will not intervene if Syria is attacked. Iran has said it will only intervene in Syria as long as Russia does. Iran is definitely going to be next so Iran might as well help us now. Russia will also be attacked or put through a Cold War again. If the world has just one superpower, it will be the end of free life.
Syrians are optimistic, calm, resolved. They are not yet destroyed. She says Syria is everything to her. Confidence is not lack of emotion. We have to do what we know is right and fight for our sovereignty, to stop the perpetual killing. We’re not going to back down, no matter what.
