Huge demonstrations in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad were held across Syria two weeks after the launch of the NATO-led covert war on Syria on March 16, 2011. It is worth bearing in mind that back then the overall population of Syria was around 22,5 million in March 2011. Apart few exceptions, the al-Manar report below was totally ignored by the western mainstream and “alternative” media alike.

U.S. Senator Richard Black: “Syria fought terrorism successfully and will be victorious”

U.S. Senator Richard Black-620x330

[Virginia, SANA/Hazem Sabbagh] – U.S. Senator Richard Black said that Syria fought terrorism successfully and is heading towards victory, warning those who want Syria to fall that terrorism will head to Jordan, Lebanon, and Europe if the terrorisms manage to achieve their goals in Syria.

In a phone call on Sunday with the Syrian radio station Melody FM, Black said that Erdogan’s regime has colonialist dreams in Syria and the region, and that there’s evidence that the Turkish intelligence provided gas to terrorists to use in an attack in the Ghouta area in a bid to drag the United States into war in Syria.

He said that Turkey, along with Qatar and Saudi Arabia, are the biggest funders of terrorists organizations, noting that the reason for the influx of foreign terrorists into Syria is motivated by the desire of those behind the crisis in Syria to replace the shortage…

4 Years of Syrian Resistance

U.S. efforts to overturn the government of Syria have now extended into a fifth year.

It is increasingly clear that thousands of predictions reported in the corporate media by Western politicians, think tanks, diplomats and generals of a quick overturn and easy destruction of Syrian sovereignty have been overly optimistic, imperialist dreams.

But four years of sabotage, bombings, assassinations and a mercenary invasion of more than 20,000 fighters recruited from over 60 countries have spread great ruin and loss of life.

The U.S. State Department has once again made its arrogant demand that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad must step down. This demand confirms U.S. imperialism’s determination to overthrow the elected Syrian government. Washington intends to impose the chaos of feuding mercenaries and fanatical militias as seen today in Libya and Iraq.

A delegation from the International Action Center headed by former U.S…

Question 1: Mr. President, thank you for allowing us to come here. We asked for this interview because your country’s been at war for four years. It is a humanitarian crisis, perhaps the worst on the planet right now. 200,000 Syrians have died, four million refugees, ten million have left their homes, life expectancy is down, 50% of your country is occupied by hostile forces. It’s become a battleground for outside forces. What’s next? Because we have seen since I last visited you the rise of ISIS, we have seen Hezbollah in here, we have seen the United States becoming increasingly concerned about ISIS, so much so that the President, and especially the Secretary of State, have said that there’s a need for a negotiated settlement.
