there is now the impression that Western powers only did so for the sake of initiating regime change, said Lavrov.

No duh!!! It took them 3 years to figure that out?

I think Lavrov just called Obama a LIAR in a diplomatic way..he is right..Obama is not only a LIAR but a COWARD too..he tells the Russians something and behind their back he says something totaly different.

Ass ad could have prevented this almost 2 years ago. If he met bla bla bla...

1s t If Brutus was right then Obomber and you should have ben killed long time ago.

2nd Assad had the clear vision to foresee that the initial demonstrations in which Saudi tugs attacked security forces from within the masses was 1st step of an ever increasing foreign backed violent plan to overthrow him, hat off to him and SAA for choosing to die fighting rather tan to live on their knees.

The US with the double talking Obama as "commander in chief" Think that they are capable of playing on two or more horses in the Syrian tragedy! As said before! Everbody in the US from the bottom to the top in society!
GOOGLE THE WORD SHAME! Because you obviouly do not know what that is! And the US are both jealous and envious on Russia, therefor they try anything to derail any positive political or other achivements they make!

"Meanwhi le, Saudi Arabia on Friday decided to start providing the opposition with Chinese Manpads and antitank guided missiles from Russia, WSJ reports, citing Western and Arab diplomats and opposition figures."

One extremist to another ... I wonder how much longer before someone decides to put Saudi Arabia on a terrorist list?

  


Ch ristian fundamentalist in nice suits.
They will never put Saudi Arabia on the terrorist list because they claim the oil of SA
And they will have under the table agreements

Why does Obomba support al Qaeda so assiduously?

  



Peaceful political solution of Syria means defeating of the USA. So by hook or by crook the USA like the terrorists won the war and killed Assad. More civilian casualty is what the terrorists like to blame Assad. The USA tried to blame Assad for chemical weapons used but now it is crystal clear the govt forces did not use it. Civilians casualty and human rights are the phrase they use to punish Assad. They abuse these words.

Lavrov lies...By Russia demanding nothing, it is the same as what he blames on the West...the peace talks would be derailed. Inaction is many times worse than doing something. Something is better than nothing.

RT 's short attention span does not remember that Assad could have prevented this almost 2 years ago. If he met with some of the initial demonstrators in the beginning, it never would have spiraled out of control. Assad is infected with the disease of all Dictators, never show weakness and they must always have it their way

Brutus was right. Sic semper evello mortem tyrannis...Death to tyrants.

It probably has to do with whether they use poison gas or not. I believe the ones who do are called 'moderates'.

They can't their evil intentions behind the clueless Barack puppet.
Stop the evil empire! Stop neocon wars!

Obama's a busted flush and he knows it,especially on the Syria problem.
So out of his depth on diplomacy and International politics it's embarrassing,then stupidity can be a dangerous thing.
Russia holds all the cards on Syria and the World knows it

I'm sick abt so much hypocrisy from the USA government. Is it clear that all the world wars in the last 20 years was started and feeded by the USA. They are the most evil nation today. But the world will stop them some day. This empire is about to end. Long live Russia and China!

Oh-Bummer - why do you not stay out of other peoples back-yard or are you actively looking for a war.

  


'c ause it re-focuses the attention of the voters away from the problems confronted by the country.

This is amazing ( wikileaks ).

They are using S-Arabia to send the weapons to them now acting like theya re not sending anything when everyone knows they have been using them to do it for a long time. The U.S wants syria overthrone so they can place in a puppet and Central Banking system.

The y will stop at nothing. Also they will target China now since China pulled out of the Central Banking system and went back to gold standard.

T he Beast is not happy...
