World sees U.S. as belligerent; lacking credibility, decency, morality, respect for law and peoples

U.S. against Syria

‘Regarding the position of our American colleagues, who affirm that [Syrian government troops] used ... [chemical weapons] and say that they [the Americans] have proof,” Russian President Vladimir Putin says,

…let them show it to the United Nations inspectors and the Security Council.

Vladimir Putin

Neutralizing United Nations
Today in Vladivostok, the Russian president reportedly told journalists, “Syrian government troops are on the offensive and have surrounded the opposition in several regions.

“In these conditions, to give a trump card [by using chemical weapons against their Syrian people] to those who are calling for a military intervention is utter nonsense.”

However, considering the British parliament’s vote on Thursday rejecting London’s role in a potential U.S.-led war on Syria, Putin said, “Even if Britain is the USA’s main geopolitical ally in the world, there are people who are guided by national interests and common sense, and value their sovereignty.”

And “a Nobel Peace Prize laureate,” he said, “should think of the potential victims of a military attack against Syria.”

foreign interference
In a statement representing the Russian Foreign Ministry, Alexander Lukashevich said U.S. and other Western “threats are unacceptable [and] undermine the possibility to solve the conflict in Syria by political and diplomatic means.” Such threats, he said will “bring about a new round of confrontation and casualties.”

Threats of striking Syria are being issued instead of implementing the decisions of the G8 summit in Lough Erne [and] subsequent agreements to provide the UN Security Council with a comprehensive evaluation by UN experts, who investigate the possible use of chemical weapons in Syria.

“Any unilateral military sanction bypassing the UN Security Council, no matter how ‘limited’ it is,” Lukashevich said, “will be a direct violation of the international law.” 

Syrian President
Bashar al- Assad
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has distanced itself from participating in military intervention in Syria. The nations of Iran, Russia, and China, as well as the United Nations, have warned against war.

U.S. aggression
Ordinary people all over the world are rallying against continued wars, destabilization and provocations, and human rights abuses by the United States in the Middle East and South Central Asia.

Also in today’s news: U.S. bombing in Pakistan
“U.S. drone strike leaves 4 dead in northwestern Pakistan,” August 31, 2013, http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/08/31/321420/us-drone-strike-kills-4-in-nw-pakistan/

At least four people died (and the death toll will likely rise) in an attack by a U.S. assassination drone in Pakistan’s troubled northwestern tribal region. Local security officials said the attack took place in the village of Heso Khel, situated about 35 kilometers (21 miles) east of Miranshah -- the main town in North Waziristan. The compound “was completely destroyed,” an anonymous security source told the press.

Pakistan’s government in Islamabad has repeatedly protested U.S. drone strikes as a violation of the country’s sovereignty together with the massacre of civilians. But the breach of international law by the United States has continued with impunity.
