Syria: Washington supplies terrorists with weapons

Iranian Shura Council Spokesman, Ali Larijani,.jpgLarijani: US and Regional Countries Supply terrorist Groups in Syria with Weapons… chaos in Syria does not benefit West

Sep 20, 2012 - TEHRAN, (SANA) - Iranian Shura Council Spokesman, Ali Larijani, stressed that a flood of weapons was pouring to the armed terrorist groups in Syria by the USA and some regional countries , adding that some of these countries are proud to announce they are providing weapons money, which made the former UN envoy to Syria Kofi Annan resign, believing that some countries were contributing to the problem instead of trying to resolve it.

In an exclusive interview with the British Newspaper of Financial Times, larijani said "These countries which got involved with Syria assumed they could change Syria in a matter of a few weeks and achieve their selfish goals. Others had bigger plans – to help the Zionist regime, but they failed because of their provocative behaviour. If a country wants to carry out political reforms, this cannot happen with rocket-propelled grenades. "

The Iranian official wondered, "Are the USA seeking reform in Syria with RPGs? If this is what the US believes in, why does not it do so in other countries in the region that are ruled by monarchies who do not allow women even to drive cars? Is this not a problem for the Americans?"

Vote Makes Changes in Countries Not Weapons

He continued to say that change in every country should be effected through people’s votes, not through other countries sending weapons and making decisions in pretext of peace, pointing out that people are killed every day in Syria due to the violent behaviour of westerners and some regional countries.

Larijani noted that some western intelligence services have been involved in the explosions hit Syria, wondering why they are doing that.

"Those who are meddling in Syria are responsible for the bloodshed of the Syrian people," considering that some western powers and some regional countries think their demands should be implemented, even if it has to be with tanks.

Opposition Has no Reference for Negotiations

The Iranian official said "The opposition does not have a unified leader. It is multilayered. They have various intentions and opinions. Some countries give them financial and military assistance. There is no reference group for negotiations in this issue."

"We believe that any reforms should come from inside Syria, without outside pressure. And these groups are made up of Syrians. They can participate in the reform process, give their thoughts and provide solutions. We were moving toward finding a peaceful solution – which means democratic reform through peaceful behaviour, not violence," he added.

Chaos in Syria Not Benefit West

On the duration of the crisis, larijani considered that It will depend on how western powers behave, adding that If they think rationally, they will see the chaos in Syria does not benefit them.

"The west should take note of the consequences of unrest in some countries that are not as significant as Syria. You see it in Libya and elsewhere… This means fighting with the people of one region and sending weapons and killing them will have a negative impact, while the consequent unrest will benefit no one," he added.

Iranian Shura Council Spokesman said that Syria has strong institutions, as there is an established government, despite attempts to sabotage it.

"The west saw an opportunity and sent some equipment to stir things up… Maybe they thought weakening Syria would benefit Israel, but I think the unrest there will create problems for them, too, although this may only become clear in the future," he added.

Washington is responsible for terrorist attacks and suffering of Syrian people

Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.
