article imageAssad: I don't rule out possibility of US attack

By Paul Iddon     Sep 26, 2013 in Politics
In an interview with Venezuelan television, Syrian President Assad has said he still doesn't doubt that the U.S. might launch a military strike against his country, even in light of the recent Russian-brokered agreement.
Haaretz reports that even in light of the fact that the Syrian President has agreed to oversee the destruction of his stockpile of chemical weapons he still suspects the United States may launch a strike against his regime.
He also says that his government has obtained “confessions” from rebel fighters that they were the ones who introduced chemical weapons into the ongoing war there.
Mr. Assad still maintains that the rebel fighters were responsible for the mass murder of civilians in his capital city with chemical weapons on August 21 last. He has even claimed that his government has given to the Russians evidence that the rebels had a network of chemical arms depots and labs.
Russia was the main political force that brokered a diplomatic solution in the aftermath of the heinous chemical attack in Damascus with the United States which threatened to strike Syria militarily in retaliation for that attack.
Daily Star Lebanon reports that Assad claimed he has evidence that Saudi Arabia and many other Gulf countries are actively arming the opposition fighters attempting to topple him. But he added he has no proof as of yet that any of these countries supplied them with chemical materials.
He also accused the Obama Administration of lying to the American people when it accused his government of gassing its own people.
