Syria’s Assad: Trump can be our natural ally



 Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview with Russian state television that US President-elect Donald Trump could become a natural ally to Damascus if he shows he is sincere about fighting terrorism.

“If Trump can genuinely fight against terrorism, he can be our natural ally,” Assad, speaking through an interpreter, said in the interview which was broadcast on Wednesday.

Assad said he was encouraged by Trump’s declarations during the election campaign about fighting violent Islamists and not interfering in the internal affairs of other countries. But it was unclear if Trump would carry through on those promises once in office, Assad said.

    The above photo is good, in that it covers the neo-liberals clinton and PBO.
    However, the neocons in the GOP (which are absent in the photo) are MORE numerous and equally as dangerous.

    Many Americans who voted for Trump are praying he spoke honestly about his opposition to foreign interventions! That’s a major part of his appeal!
