MESOP INSIDER SYRIA : Kerry to Activists Behind Closed Doors — Don’t Fight, Let Assad Run in Elections

1 Oct 2016 – by Scott Lucas – eaworldview – Since February, Syria’s opposition activists have spoken of their despair at a series of statements by US Secretary of State John Kerry in private encounters.

Kerry asked, “The Secretary of State continued, “What do you want me to do? Go to war with Russia? Is that what you want?”, acccording to the witnesses.Now — thanks to someone who had an audio recorder and provided the output to The New York Times — we can listen to extracts from one of those private conversations.

THE GERMAN KURDISH CHAPTER

MESOP NEU : NATO & WESTEN AM ENDE –  Obama: Aus Angst Non-Stop zurück in die USA?

US-Präsident Obama war für sieben Stunden in Israel, er nahm an der Beisetzung des verstorbenen früheren israelischen Staatspräsidenten Shimon Peres teil.

Der demnächst scheidende US-Präsident hat es laut Berichten allerdings sehr eilig: Es sind keinerlei Zwischenstopps geplant, weder zum auftanken der Präsidentenmaschiene, noch um bei der Gelegenheit einigen Verbündeten einen Abschiedsbesuch abzustatten, wie der US-Politiker Dr. Stefan Prystawik haOlam.de exklusiv mitteilte  An der US-Westküste soll bereits, für alle Eventualitäten, eine Tankmaschiene bereit stehen. In der Obama-Administration, so Beobachter, scheint man kein großes Vertrauen mehr in die Nato- und EU-Partner zu haben, den Luftraum entsprechend für die Präsidentenmaschiene zu sichern. http://www.mesop.de/?p=78677
