A CNN Interview: “You Think the U.S. Is ANY MORE DEMOCRATIC Than Syria?”


A Video from CNN on Syria


President Assad’s media advisor appeared on CNN and asked where John Kerry gets the right to tell the Syrian people who can and cannot be their leader.

She encouraged the media to come to Syria so “you will find out for yourself who is the criminal; who is kidnapping people, who is raping people.” She said that “most of what’s circulated in the media has nothing to do with what’s in Syria.”

In the current international negotiations over the Syrian conflict, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry made it clear that current president Bashar al-Assad will not have a role in any new transitional government.

So when Assad advisor Bouthaina Shaaban appeared on CNN Wednesday to react to the news, she went on a strong rant against Kerry, asking where he gets the right to tell the Syrian people who can and cannot be their leader.

She suggested the shoe would never be on the other foot, called the U.S.’ stance “colonial,” and asked, “Do you think there’s real democracy in the United States when they deal with countries like this?”

Wolf Blitzer brought up some graphic pictures that appear to depict victims of the Assad regime, pictures obtained by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

Shaaban fired back that “you really have to be in Syria to know who’s doing what,” not judging from a distance like, she said, Amanpour was doing. She called the accusations a “huge lie” meant to “create conflict” and undermine the Syrian government.

Shaaban called out “one man in the United States who’s misleading” about Syria, but when pressed by Blitzer, she said, “I’m not going to name him, everybody knows him.”

She encouraged the media to come to Syria so “you will find out for yourself who is the criminal; who is kidnapping people, who is raping people.” She insisted that “most of what’s circulated in the media has nothing to do with what’s in Syria.”


Shaaban: Saudi Arabia, Turkey Lead Syria War

She’s got Ph.D. in English Literature from Warwick University , London . She was the spokesperson for Syria . She was nominated for Nobel Peace Prize in 2005.

It is amazing ,in America rampant poverty, police killings, unemployment, massive numbers in prisons, loss of savings ,loss of homes, medical that does bankrupt, Fat cat politicians, regulations up on regulations, Gun control, most suspected as terrorists at airports. Jews piss on us and we have to thank them as it is raining. On and on and Americans go along. When will the riots start? Not likely, too stupid to start one!
This arrogant bastard Kerry takes his marching orders from the big Jewish dominated New York and London banks. The lady was right when she said this was all about Israel.

Sorry Wolf, , but I believe the lady. Besides, all of those items you listed as war crimes….well gosh, the USA , Israel, Saudi Arabia, the UK, and France…. shouldn’t they be tried for war crimes first?John kerry…….well you are an embarassment; facts are most important for a secretay of state of any nation. How easily you fling around accusations; might as well be feces for all the good your words will do. No one respects or believes you, Mr. Kerry; not even israel who keeps insulting you as you try to create a peace plan for the Israelis…( there is the other group…the Palestinians………………you’ve forgotten them already, haven’t you.)I suppose mr. kerry thinks that Lybia was a good ending? Or the never ending Iraq/ afghanistan….oh yeah, right…we’re not in Iraq— but I bet we still are, aren’t we.Leave Syria alone, please! ;Syria is for Syrians, who by the way have ( or they had before all the greedy nations came in) had a lot of different religions and a lot of respect……………OH USA, we have the Midas in Reverse Touch……..truly, everything this nation touches does turn to shit.

See: “‘How CNN Was Taken Over by Neo-Con Zionists”’- explains why ‘former’ AIPAC Israel Lobby propaganda agent Blitzer & rabid warmongering Zionist propagandist Amanpour are given top spots on CNN to lie for the destruction of independent nations. Before lying for the destruction of united multi-ethnic Syria, ,wretched big- mouth Amanpour spewed her 24/7 CNN lies for the U.S.-Nato dismemberment & destruction of multi-ethnic Yugoslavia in tandem with her interviews with top Zionist State Department liar,.Jamie Rubin, (son of Wall St. Vampire, Robert Rubin) without ever disclosing that she was literally in bed with him as his wife. Check out the invaluable back issues of Covert Action Quarterly posted with this article. Also see: “‘Zionist Power in the World’s Economy, Media, Military & Politics”‘-‘American politics on bended knee to Zionist power’. This is an impressive article except for its author himself genuflecting off-topic to the Establishment’s anti- communist propaganda with a totally false-comparison throw-away line.
