Assad Rejects Trump “Safe Zone” Plan: Says Syria Will Be Safe When The West, GCC Stop Supporting Terrorists

By Brandon Turbeville

After rightly rejecting the new draft Constitution for Syria submitted by Russia, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is wisely rejecting the Trump administration concept of the implementation of “safe zones” inside Syria. In the first interview with Western media since the election of Donald Trump, Assad decried the plan as a bad idea that would have no real ability to protect civilians or end the Syrian crisis.

When asked by the interviewer about Trump’s statement that he would “absolutely” create “safe zones” in Syria “for the Syrian people,” Assad responded by saying,

But actually, it won’t [protect civilians], it won’t. Safe zones for the Syrians could only happen when you have stability and security, where you don’t have terrorists, where you don’t have [the] flow and support of those terrorists by the neighboring countries or by Western countries. This is where you can have a natural safe zone, which is our country. They don’t need safe zones at all. It’s not a realistic idea at all.

When the interviewer pressed Assad on the fact that so many Syrians were displaced and thus “How can you oppose safe zones?” Assad pointed directly at the root of the problem. He stated,

The first thing you have to ask: why were they displaced? If you don’t answer that question, you cannot answer the rest. They were displaced for two reasons: first of all, the terrorist acts and the support from the outside. Second, the [U.S.] embargo on Syria. Many people didn’t only leave Syria because of the security issues. As you can see, Damascus is safe today, it’s nearly normal life, not completely.

But they don’t find a way for life in Syria, so they have to travel abroad in order to find their living. So, if you lift the embargo, and if you stop supporting the terrorists … I’m talking about everyone who supported terrorists, including the United States during Obama’s administration. If you stop all these acts, most of those people will go back to their country.

Indeed. In this short interview clip, Assad echoed the same sentiment and solutions that I and many other Syrian researchers and analysts have been saying from the beginning of the crisis; i.e. if America wants to stop terrorism in Syria, it need only stop funding it, supporting it, and directing it. It’s that simple. The U.S. could also call on its allies Saudi Arabia, Turkey, U.K., France, Qatar, and Israel to do the same. It could work with Russia to eliminate the remnants of terrorist forces and it could provide information and coordinates to both Syria and Russia on the whereabouts of terrorists and terrorist forces.

We should call on the Trump administration to immediately end any and all support for armed groups in Syria, to press America’s allies to stop supporting terrorists, immediately begin rapprochement with Russia and Syria, and look toward the future of investment in rebuilding Syria as a country as well as immediately ending the sanctions currently in place against the Syrian people.

    Assad is a doctor and the duly elected president of Syria. He has been fighting Israel and us for his country’s freedom.

    General Wesley Clark was told after 911 by a high ranking general in the Pentagon, “We’re going to take out seven countries in 5 years, starting with
    Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran.”

      In 2015 General Wesley Cohen Clark also said disloyal Americans who don’t support the global war on terror tactics should be rounded up and placed in internment camps. https://libertyblitzkrieg.com/2015/07/20/video-of-the-day-general-wesley-clark-suggests-putting-disloyal-americans-in-internment-camps/ Clark is very tight with the Clintons, had a direct hand in the massacres in Waco and the Bosnia / Serb conflict, is a chairman and investor in a major coal operation in Kosovo (exploited by NATO), and works for Blackstone. Clark proffers limited hangouts and psy op twists because his first priority serving his masters, not blowing the whistle on them. Bizarre cog dis the left appraises him as a neocon foe and much of alt elevates him as a truth teller.

        Thanks, I understand, but my point is someone from the dark side spilled the beans, perhaps intentionally, perhaps accidentally, but his quote is validated by our aggressive actions in the Mid East.

        • blue579

          Sure. I’m implying the leak was intentional, a psy op., to create a smokescreen and skewed narrative involving Syria and Iran, esp. Iran which has been closely cooperating with the global elite since the 90s. Also Syrian elites had been going down the same NWO path and much of their billions in wealth is held in outside of Syria in western controlled investments. Anyway, the smokescreen distraction is working. Few people are organizing to resist the Big Brother Eye of Suaron mark-of-the-beast surveillance state.

          • Joe Blow

            Thanks, I agree that the masses have been lulled into frivolous pursuits and not dealing with the real problems and challenges in front of them. Today the weather service said blue skies and high 60’s. After a morning of dozens of chemtrail planes spewing their toxic payloads on us the sun is gone, replaced by artifical Cyrus clouds of death. 😕

          • blue579

            Thank you, you read my mind! In the metro area where I live, the chemtrails have been outrageous, egregious, blatant – what more can I say? It boggles my mind. Very noticeable in CO, the natural weather pattern had always been bright clear sunny days. I drove by a huge NOAA complex last year in Boulder CO and there were several heavy duty chemtrails overhead. I’ve noticed some severe damage to trees, esp. pine. Imagine the long term health effects. Wow.

          • Joe Blow

            The most difficult thing for me is to get people to even look up as we talk. 😕 Guess the cognitive dissonance takes over. Admit they are real and you commit to a “conspiracy theory” hey?

  • Undecider

    In order for Trump to follow Assad’s wishes, he has to be willing to bring the War on Terror to a halt.

    • ZombieGirl

      unfortunately, Trump ALSO works for the Zionists … like everybody else.

  • blue579

    The world will be safe when the Zio Banksters pack their backs and are shipped off the planet.

      Hallelujah! …when that morning shines!

    To me the funding of terrorism in Syria was Obama’s worst act of betrayal of the American people and the Western World. His legacy will be shameful in this regard. Destroying a secular nation which is a bulwark against rabid Muslim theocracies would be the biggest win for Middle East terrorism ever. It would affect all of Europe and Africa immediately and the rest of the World soon after. The gross hypocrisy of the former White House and Congress relating to the American support for terrorists show everyone that you can’t believe one word politicians say, nor anything you see on the MSM!

      Look closer. While the alias, BHObama is guilty as charged, he was one of numerous stooges. Former USArmy PsyOps officer, Scott Bennett documented that the CIA funds ISIS-ISIL, and veteranstoday com established that ISIS-ISIL is commanded by Judaism´s MOSSAD. ISIS-ISIL has murdered Arab Christians and Arab Moslems while driving them out of the territory that was included in the “7 countries in 5 years” plan, that was discovered in the Pentagon on 21 Sep 2001. The plan used the USMilitary to remove Arabs from the territory that Judaism wants to incorporate and rename “Israel”. Nor is the current “Israel” a nation or even a principality. It is a land-grant of specified territory in 1948 that included no option for expansion. The leadership of the land-grant continue to conduct the terrorism started by Ben-Gurion in Fall 1947, that was consummated with the land-grant of 1948. The expansion into Palestine and Syria reflect the terrorism conducted by Judaism, which was overtaken by the Khazarian Empire a thousand or so years ago.

      • Archie1954

        I agree 100%. What bothers me the most is that none of the problems in the Middle East would have happened, if the UN backed up by the US and the UK had made sure the resolution creating Israel had been followed to the letter!

        • drbhelthi

          Archie, while I agree with the gist of your response, the resolution did not create “Israel”. It created only a specified territory.
          We observe the narcissistic religiosity of the Khazarian leadership in the fact that they fraudulently named the land-grant “Israel”. Their continued terrorism reflects all subsequent expansion into Palestine, Syria and other countries. Veteranstoday com has documented that Judaism´s MOSSAD commands ISIS-ISIL. Former USArmy PsyOps officer, Scott Bennett, documented that the CIA funds ISIS-ISIL.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jo8Xm46s62I
