Syria’s President Bashar Assad said in comments Sunday that the air campaign by Russia against “terrorists” in his country must succeed or the whole region will be destroyed, stressing that the fight against terrorism must precede a political process.

In the interview with Iran’s Khabar TV, Assad also accused Western nations of fueling the refugee crisis and said the U.S.-led coalition to fight the Islamic State group will only spark more instability in his country and the region.

    The U.S. Coalition was designed to fail and to then subsidize Isis with U.S. Weapons. This is what sparks armeggedon. As Daniael said, the kings of the north and the east square off with the beast. All those that oppose Israel hope they will be caught in the cross fire. As far as the beast is concernedIt is not about winning or losing. His first objective is the eradication of Israel, his second is to kill as many people as he can in the process. It’s all about souls and filling hell because that’s where he rules.

    a rather puzzling comment, considering the circumstances. the russians have deployed primarily interceptors (mig-31), rather than ground attack aircraft (su-25), even though the “terrorists” have no planes whatsoever. and he seems to be ignoring the “elephant in the room”, namely the american-led coalition, whose air campaign is supposedly “degrading” his opponents.
