Worte der Woche (46)
Zwar sind die letzten „Worte der Woche“ erst zwei Tage alt, doch die Obama-Regierung agiert bezüglich ihres ohnehin bereits äußerst naiven und unklugen Zugehens auf Syrien derart stümperhaft, das es nicht anders geht. Die Ha’aretz berichtet über die jüngste Sternstunde der Appeasement-Politik:
The U.S. administration has asked Syrian President Bashar Assad to immediately stop transferring arms to Hezbollah. American officials made the request during a meeting Friday with the Syrian ambassador to Washington. […]
The administration also said the meeting was part of its efforts to achieve a direct dialogue with Syria on issues of interest to both sides.
Haaretz has learned that Burns‘ visit to Damascus ended unsatisfactorily for the U.S. administration. During Burns‘ meeting with Assad, the Syrian leader denied all American claims that his regime was providing military aid to terrorists in Iraq, or to Hezbollah and Palestinian terror groups.
Assad essentially told Burns that he had no idea what the American was talking about.
