President al-Assad: Syria is capable of confronting any external aggression


President Bashar al-Assad said that Syria is capable of confronting any external aggression as it is facing a daily internal aggression by the armed terrorist groups, thanks to the steadfastness of the Syrian people and their support to the army.

President al-Assad was speaking during his meeting on Sunday with Chairman of the Foreign Policy and National Security Committee at the Iranian Shura Council, Alaeddin Boroujerdi.

President al-Assad said that Syria is achieving one victory after another until restoring security and stability to the homeland.

The two sides discussed the situation in the region and the latest developments related to the US threats of launching a military aggression against Syria.

President al-Assad affirmed during the meeting that the US threats will not discourage Syria from commitment to its principles and firm stances, and combating terrorism backed by regional and Western countries, especially the US.

For his part, Dr. Boroujerdi, expressed the support of the Iranian leadership and people to Syria in the face of aggression, stressing that the honest people in the region will not allow foreign schemes that are targeting Syria’s role and the security and stability of the region’s populations to pass.

He considered that any external aggression on Syria will be a failure and will backfire on the aggressors as the ”US and its agents in the region, especially the Zionist entity, will be the main loser in this adventure.”

The flimsy pretexts that Washington is using to justify its threats have become exposed to the international public opinion, Boroujerdi said, adding that Iran advises all people of common sense around the world to put pressure on the US to spare the region and the world the risks of inflaming wars that no one can control.

In the same context, Prime Minister, Dr, Wael al-Halqi and Foreign and Expatiates Minister, Walid al-Moallem met Boroujerdi and the accompanying delegation.

Deputy Foreign and Expatriates Minister, Dr. Fayssal Mikdad and Advisor to Foreign and Expatriates Minister Ahmad Arnous attended the meeting.

International weapons experts leave Syria, U.S. prepares attack


– U.N. experts investigating a poison gas attack in Syria left on Saturday, paving the way for the United States to lead military strikes to punish Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad.

U.S. President Barack Obama said the United States, which has five cruise-missile equipped destroyers in the region, is planning a “limited, narrow” military action to punish Assad for an attack that Washington said killed 1,429 people.

“We cannot accept a world where women and children and innocent civilians are gassed on a terrible scale,” Obama said on Friday after Washington unveiled an intelligence assessment concluding Assad’s forces were to blame for the attack.

After laying out the case in a televised speech, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry spoke on Friday to the foreign ministers of European and Gulf allies, as well as the head of the Arab League, a senior State Department official said.

The team of U.N. experts drove up to Beirut International Airport on Saturday after crossing the land border into Lebanon by road earlier in the day. No Western intervention had been expected as long as they were still on the ground in Syria.

The 20-member team, which had arrived in Damascus three days before the Aug. 21 attack to investigate earlier accusations, eventually visited the sites several times, taking blood and tissue samples from victims in rebel-held suburbs of Damascus.

Inspectors also took samples of soil, clothing and rocket fragments. However, their mandate is to determine whether chemicals were used, not who used them.

Washington says it does not need to wait for the inspectors to report, since it is already certain chemical weapons were used and convinced that Assad’s forces were behind the attack.

U.S. forces are likely to launch strikes jointly with France, which has strongly backed the use of force to punish Assad.

“The chemical massacre in Damascus cannot and must not go unpunished. Otherwise we’d run the risk of an escalation that would trivialise the use of these arms and put other countries at risk,” French President Francois Hollande told Friday’s Le Monde newspaper in an interview.

“REBEL PROVOCATION”

Britain also strongly backed action, but was forced to pull out of the coalition after Prime Minister David Cameron unexpectedly lost a vote over it in parliament on Thursday.

Turkey backs the use of force and Arab states in the region say Assad should be punished, although they have mainly stopped short of explicitly endorsing military strikes against him. Iran, which supports Assad, has warned of wider war.

Kerry said Washington must act to protect itself and its allies, including Syria’s neighbours Turkey, Jordan and Israel, from future use of banned weapons.

“If we choose to live in the world where a thug and a murderer like Bashar al-Assad can gas thousands of his own people with impunity” it would embolden others, such as Iran, Hezbollah and North Korea, Kerry said.

Syria and its main ally Russia say rebels carried out the attack as a provocation. Moscow has repeatedly used its U.N. Security Council veto to block forceful action against the Syrian leader and says any attack on Syria would be illegal and only inflame the civil war there.

“I am convinced that it (the chemical attack) is nothing more than a provocation by those who want to drag other countries into the Syrian conflict, and who want to win the support of powerful members of the international arena, especially the United States,” President Vladimir Putin said.

Syria’s Foreign Ministry repeated its denial that the government had used chemical weapons against its own people. Kerry’s accusations were a “desperate attempt” to justify a military strike. “What he said was lies,” the ministry said.

Washington says the Syrian denials are not credible, and the rebels would not have been able to launch such an attack.

The White House was to brief Republican senators on Syria in a conference call on Saturday at the request of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a spokesman for the senator said.

RESIDENTS PREPARE FOR STRIKES

In Syria itself, residents in and around Damascus readied themselves for a strike.

A man named Youssef carried a small plastic bag bulging with documents. “Do I put them in my parents’ home? My in-laws? At work? I don’t know which area is safer, I don’t know where to hide them,” he told a friend.

“That’s my marriage certificate, my passport, my home ownership deed, my college degree, and all my wife’s documents too. We can’t figure out where to put them for safekeeping.”

Doctors in the outskirts of the capital said they were training up teams and trying to secure shipments sent in by aid groups of atropine and oxygen, which are needed for treating poison gas victims.

“We worry about another chemical weapons attack should foreign powers carry out the strike, as some kind of revenge, or who knows what could happen,” said a doctor in the rebel-held suburb of Arbin, called Abu Akram.

Rebels said they were planning to take advantage of a strike to launch an offensive. Qassim Saadeddine, a former Syrian army colonel and spokesman for the rebels’ Supreme Military Council, said rebel groups had been sent a military plan of action.

“The hope is to take advantage when some areas are weakened by any strikes. We ordered some groups to prepare in each province, to ready their fighters for when the strike happens,” he told Reuters, speaking by Skype.

“They were sent a military plan that includes preparations to attack some of the targets we expect to be hit in foreign strikes, and some others that we hope to attack at the same time.”

Two Brighton and Hove teenagers admit attacking four men – See more at: http://www.brightonandhovenews.org/2013/08/06/two-brighton-and-hove-teenagers-admit-attacking-four-men.


Two teenagers from Brighton and Hove have admitted robbery and assault during a 90-minute spree in which four men were attacked.

They changed their plea from not guilty to guilty shortly before they were due to be tried by a crown court jury.

Max Corbett, 19, from Albany Villas, Hove, and a 17-year-old boy from Brighton faced a trial starting next Monday (12 August).

Instead the pair will now be sentenced at Lewes Crown Court on Friday 6 September. Corbett has been bailed until then while the boy has been remanded back into custody.

The two teenagers rode a moped the wrong way down St James’s Street in Brighton in the early hours of Friday 26 October last year.

This led to a confrontation with a 36-year-old man from Brighton. He was attacked and suffered head injuries.

The man spent several months in a medically induced coma at Hurstwood Park Neurosciences Centre in Haywards Heath as a result of the attack.

Shortly afterwards, at about 12.45am, the teenagers went into a bar in Cranbourne Street, Brighton, and attacked the landlord when he refused to serve them.

At about 2am they robbed two men aged 20 and 21 near The Level in Brighton.

Both victims were left with cuts and bruises after the muggings in Washington Street. One had an iPhone stolen and the other a BlackBerry, cards and £20 cash although their possessions were later recovered.

Corbett, who was 18 at the time, and the boy were both arrested by officers from Sussex Police a short time later.

Corbett now admits robbery and assault causing actual bodily harm (ABH) in Washington Street and having ketamine.

The boy has pleaded guilty to assaulting the 36-year-old man in St James’s Street, causing him grievous bodily harm (GBH).

He also now admits assaulting the pub landlord and one of the victims in Washington Street, causing them ABH. And he has pleaded guilty to robbery.

This Election Is ALL About R.A.C.E.

Why is Race/Racism has to come into Politics,who so ever is chosen should be able to lead their country with out bias.

 

The Militant Negro™

By Jueseppi B.

 

 

 

 

 

This is the second election for President Of The United States between a Black candidate & a caucasian candidate in 57 quadrennial United States Presidential elections. This is the first one that is driven & based on race/racism.

 

The very first election featuring Barack Hussein Obama was not about race/racism but more about change from  failed policies by a failed President/Vice President in George Dubbya Bush/Dick Cheney. Racist caucasian Americans and their handful of house nigger minded, misguided, ignorant, Black Americans didn’t see Barack Hussein Obama coming. His campaign blindsided the Americanracist. They didn’t take Barack Hussein Obama’s chances of actually BEING President, very seriously.

 

From the very second he was announced, by a shocked media, as the winner of the 2008 general election for President Of The United States, he has been treated with the exact same respect…

Why can’t we have people from grass root level in Politics who is more in touch with us and not some rich lads who are only in Politics to get into the super rich book of fame and to turn their backs on the people who puts them in such position in the first place.
