Crocodile tears on Syrian children

Over the past five years, the US and its Western allies have been using the UN and its various bodies to politicize the crisis in Syria and prevent finding a political solution that halts the bloodshed in Syria and guarantees the Syrian sovereignty. The humanitarian aid and the situation of children have been taken by several UN bodies to elongate the crisis in Syria and achieve sinister political objectives, because all the UN reports have ignored the real reason behind the suffering of the Syrian people and children, namely the takfiri terrorism and its Western and regional supporters.

"Moderate Terrorism"!

From the beginning of the crisis in Syria, the US and its allies intended not to name things with their real names. They invented the name of "moderate opposition" to justify the acts of killing and heinous massacres perpetrated against Syrian people nationwide by mercenaries and criminals who were exported to Syria from more than 83 states. Not to name terrorism in its real name sends wrong signs to the terrorist groups that their terrorism is justified as long as it destroys the country’s infrastructure and institutions and depletes its material and human resources.

The US was unprepared to separate terrorist organizations from the moderate opposition in Syria. The Syrian government has embarked on the separation of terrorists from the national opposition and the civilians.. But Washington was not ready to do that because of political reasons, and did not intend to do it to elongate the crisis.

Russian-Iranian Cooperation in Syria is a 'Slap in the Face to US and NATO'

Cooperation between Moscow and Tehran has been a "direct slap in the face" to the United States, the North Atlantic Alliance, as well as other countries and forces that are trying to destabilize Iran and Syria, political activist and journalist Navid Nasr told Radio Sputnik.

Earlier this month, Russia deployed its bombers to the Hamadan airfield in Iran to enhance its offensive capabilities against Daesh, Al-Nusra Front and other radical terrorist groups wreaking havoc in Syria. The West was not happy with the news, according to Sputnik.

US arms sales contribute to Saudi war crimes


Press TV has conducted an interview with SeifDa'na, a professor at the University of Wisconsin, about the United States approving the sale of more than 130 Abrams tanks, 20 armored recovery vehicles and other equipment worth about $1.15 billion to Saudi Arabia.

Here is a rough transcription of the interview:

Press TV: The US Defense Security Cooperation Agency continues to insist that these arms sales to Saudi Arabia would contribute to the national security of the US by improving the security of its regional partner. How does this arms sale protect the US?

Da’na: Well that is not really true. They are trying to mask the fact that it is actually a gross violation of the Arms Trade Treaty to which the US is a party actually and not only the US but also France, Spain, Italy and England who have been supplying Saudi Arabia with weapons.

Cooperation with the Syrian government as to uproot takfiri terrorism

From the very beginning of the crisis in Syria, the international community has not shown credibility in dealing with the question of fighting terrorism. Moreover, this issue has been used by some states to interfere in Syria's internal affairs. Over the past five years, the UN dealt with the issue of combating the terrorism targeting Syria in a biased manner, with several member states foiling any active and legitimate UN steps to confront terrorist organizations in Syria, which had disastrous consequences. The UN should play an active role in fighting terrorism in a manner that respects international law strictly, and without politicization or double standards.
