Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad said yesterday that he has not yet ruled out the possibility that the United States launch a military strike on his country Syria, despite the US-Russian agreement on the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons arsenal and the joining of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) by the Arab country.
In his statements, the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has underlined his opinion that a US-led military strike on Syria could be still possible, despite the recent agreement between Moscow and Washington on Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles, by citing such as examples as Vietnam, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Iraq, but also Korea and Lebanon. Bashar al-Assad said that the United States wage wars – either directly or indirectly, and that this has already happened in Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq.
The Syrian President al-Assad added that it is not to mention what the U.S. administration has done in South America, where the United States has instigated several “coups and caused the deaths of millions of people.” It is probably understandable why the Syrian President has not yet completely ruled out the possibility of a US-led military strike on his country due to these sad examples of the direct and indirect wars of the United States in recent history.
