John Laughland on Syria

Date de publication: 25.11.2011

IDC's Director of Studies spoke on RT on 24 November and drew a parallel between the humanitarian arguments now being used in favour of intervention in Syria and those abusively used to overthrow the regime in Libya.

He suggests that despite Western powers saying they are only trying to get humanitarian aid into the country, their actions are aimed at bringing down the regime in Syria.

IDC's Director of Studies called for “Russia and the world in general" to regard “this initiative with the greatest possible skepticism.”“I would warn against any international presence, he told RT.“If a humanitarian corridor is opened, it will allow, among other things, secret service agents to penetrate Syria. They will presumably be there with the goal of overthrowing the regime.”
