Assad blames western leaders for Paris attack


assad  re election posterSyrian President Bashar al-Assad said Western “shortsightedness” and “support for terrorism” in the revolt against his rule were to blame for last week`s attacks in Paris, state media reported Wednesday.

In his first reaction to the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine and a Jewish supermarket which killed 17 people, Assad said he had repeatedly warned Western governments that their support for rebel groups in Syria risked a blowback of violence at home.

“We need to remind many in the West that we have warned of such incidents since the beginning of the crisis in Syria,” he told Czech newspaper Literarni Noviny in an interview to be published on Thursday.

“We kept saying you must not support terrorists or give them political cover, or else this will impact your countries and your peoples,” he said in excerpts carried by the Syrian Arab News Agency.

Ever since a revolt broke out against Damascus in 2011, Assad has made no distinction between peaceful and armed opponents.

He has also used the term “terrorist” to refer to all armed rebels, both the Western-backed Free Syrian Army and the jihadist groups that now dominate the revolt.

Assad said that Western leaders, like those of Syria`s former colonial ruler France, who had championed his removal had been “short-sighted and narrow-minded”.

“What happened in France has proven that everything we said was right,” he said.

    Someone needs to kill this fool already! After all the masses that he has slaughtered, I can’t believe he is still sitting fat and happy. Plus these public service announcements to the west should be reason alone to load up the stealth bomber and take care of what should have been done 4 years ago.

    Assad you are so funny sometimes may i remind you also who invited Al Qaeda to Iraq and lebanon before you damned war started in Syria? may i remind you is that you and Iran facilitated the passage of Al Qaeda members to Iraq and Libya and others countries. may I remind you if you were fair with your people and giving them their basic rights and some economic freedom instead of you and your damned cousins who controlled Syria and stepped one everyone’s head if they don’t go along with you that you invited war to your country. and may i remind you one more time do not open your f.. mouth because you are such a fool and will die like a fool. i feel bad for your family when the syrian people will drag them in the streets and behead them like sheeps. may i remind to shut the hell up once and for all.

      Well said – no Ass would massacre it’s own kind. No Ass would cause the death of hundreds of thousands and leave millions homeless.

      This asshole’s judgement day is near.
