The Syrian army is rapidly closing in on the rebels who are in control of the city, leaving a narrow corridor through which civilians are escaping on foot; Russian and Iranian support are tipping the balance in Assad's favor.01:04 06.02.16 | 1 comments
This is not a revelation at all. Most Arab leaders, past and present were never sincere in defending their peoples interests or Palestine. They see their own interest and protection with the West, the US mostly. They judge that to please the US they must also work with Israel openly or secretly. Some, like the PA, Egypt, and Jordan work without any restriction with Israel, obliged by their tteaties or otherwise. Wars in the regions could have been avoided, if it were not for the US and Israel arrogance and docility or encouragement of some Arabs. In the end, the Western nations should re-evaluate its role worldwide and should restrict itspolicymakers from dealing with tyrants for short gains. World long term and moral interests are more valuable than these duplicities and hypocracies. South Korea defense minister resigned in admission of failure, Mrs. Klinton should do the same or be fired in disgrace by Obama. . Failing that, the US would be seen no different than a bana republic . .
