27 August 2013 Last updated at 05:52 ET

Russia and China have stepped up their warnings against military intervention in Syria, with Moscow saying any such action would have "catastrophic consequences" for the region.

The US and its allies are considering launching strikes on Syria in response to deadly attacks last week.

In an interview with the Russian newspaper of Izvestia, President al-Assad stressed that "the majority of those we are fighting are Takfiris, who adopt the al-Qaeda doctrine, in addition to a small number of outlaws."
Q4 Interviewer: The Syrian government claims a strong link between Israel and the terrorists. How can you explain this? It is commonly perceived that the extremist Islamists loathe Israel and become hysterical upon hearing its name.

President al-Assad: If this was the case, why is it then that when we strike the terrorists at the frontier, Israel strikes at our forces to alleviate the pressure off of them? Why, when we blockade them into an area does Israel let them through their barricades so they can come round and re-attack from another direction? Why has Israel carried out direct strikes against the Syrian Army on more than one occasion in recent months? So clearly this perception is inaccurate. It is Israel who has publically declared its cooperation with these terrorists and treated them in Israeli hospitals.

If these terrorist groups were indeed hostile to Israel and hysterical even on the mention of the word as you mention, why have they fought the Soviet Union, Syria and Egypt, whilst never carrying out a single strike against Israel? Who originally created these terrorist groups? These groups were initially created in the early 80’s by the United States and the West, with Saudi funding, to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. So logically speaking, how could such groups manufactured by the US and the West ever strike Israel!

The USA and Saudi Arabia did

The USA and Saudi Arabia did the poison gas attacks in Syria. MSM news is lying to the country for the government about it. The international community must expose this crime before a world war goes nuclear.

What Will Russia Do If the U.S. Attacks Syria?

This is an important question that needs to be addressed. Syria and Russia are allies and as such support each other economically and militarily. Russia has supplied weapons to the Syrian military and they will no doubt be used in some way against the U.S (and Israel) if and when the attack occurs. Geographically Syria's western border also provides a buffer from a naval landing assault from the Mediterranean sea.

If Russia does not respond with some sort of action (by proxy or direct military intervention) they will appear impotent to their allies and embolden the hegemonic warmongers that control the U.S. government to press onward with their plans to eventually conquer all of the Middle East. Then it will only be matter of time before Russia is surrounded by a curtain of offense devastation pointed at them from the west.

This will be a watershed in world history if this attack goes forward. The war planners in Washington think a limited surgical or tactical strike will be accepted by world leaders and will turn the tide if favor of the rebels. But it will backfire in a horrible blow back response as Dr. Paul has warned us about in the past.

If they cross this Rubicon the U.S. will find itself in a military quagmire that will intensify much, much worse than Afghanistan. It will spread easterly across the region and well into Southeast Asia. Once the bear and the dragon combine forces it will become a hemispherical war and it will go nuclear.

There are certainly enough idiots to go around!

Hopefully the one sitting in the White House will find a moment of sanity and decide that WW3 is not the answer!

Creating another Iraq or Benghazi nightmare, before there is actual proof WHO is responsible, and letting a bunch of profiteer, chair sitting, finger pointing, lying, warmongers bending his ear, would be the mistake of the century!

If you can read this thank a teacher. Because it's in English thank a soldier!
