US doesn’t mind if Assad stays, or runs for leadership

MAKE UP YOUR MINDS ALREADY.

After spending the last two plus years insisting that Bashar "murderer of his own people" al-Assad MUST GO, it seems that the West is thinking Assad isn’t such a problem after all.

Ancient history:





RT says that now "the West is reportedly sending “clear signals” to the Syrian opposition" that Assad is now welcome to stay.


So the western-backed Syrian revolt, and the political standoff between the the western powers and Russia/China/Syria, resulting in the deaths of countless innocent civilians, and horrific war crimes was all just, what ... practice? Farce? Entertainment? (All of the above?)

This shift of US foreign policy comes after reports that the US and UK are suspending monetary support to the Syrian rebels, and the rebels are potentially joining forces with their former enemy, the Assad regime troops, to allegedly fight al-Qaida in the region.

In proxy wars fought for destabilization, shifting interests, and money, nobody seems to know what side they’re on, or apparently even what they’re fighting for.

With new stage of peace negotiations set to begin Jan. 22 in Geneva, the US administration is making a pivotal change in their attitude toward Bashar Assad and his Alawite administration.

In an exclusive, the Reuters news agency reports that Syrian rebels, who previously claimed they would only attend peace talks if President Assad immediately resigned, are being forced to agree on him remaining in office and even probably taking part in the next presidential elections.

The Washington-led anti-Assad coalition has reluctantly come to the conclusion that without Assad Syria would very soon turn into a focal point for Islamist radicals who would use the country, bordering Israel, to spread Al-Qaeda’s influence across the whole of the Middle East.

At a meeting of the core group of the Friends of Syria and the senior leadership of the Syrian National Coalition that took place December 13 in the UK, the Syrian opposition was confronted with a fait accompli that the West needs Assad.

“Our Western friends made it clear in London that Assad cannot be allowed to go now, because they think chaos and an Islamist militant takeover would ensue,” an unnamed senior member of the Syrian National Coalition, close to officials from Saudi Arabia, told Reuters.

The same source also confirmed that Western sponsors of the Syrian rebels would not even mind if Assad takes part in the next presidential elections when his current term expires in 2014.

“Some do not even seem to mind if he runs again next year,” the source told Reuters, wondering whether the West has forgotten that Assad “gassed his own people.”
