However, he said: “We have broad-based concerns about the conflict in Syria, period. We have concerns about weapons proliferation inside Syria and yes, we do have concerns that some of those weapons could fall into the wrong hands.”
If these remarks reflect the US real policy towards Syria, Washington would be in no harmony with some of its allies to that effect. Qatar and Saudi Arabia keep calling for the delivery of warfare to Syria, no matter into which hands these weapons might fall. US media have recently reported that these two Arab governments - both totally strange with democracy and human rights - have scaled down their arms assistance to the opponents of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. These media reports are still unreliable.
Doubtlessly, Syria’s armed opposition has failed to take full control of the city of Aleppo, and have had to retreat from some neighborhoods in the most populated Syrian city. This failure, instead of being hailed as a victory for the Syrian Army, is attributed to less arms delivery by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. This hypothesis could be examined.
Turkey initiated its war on Syria more than a year ago. The Syrian opposition is headquartered in Turkey, and until recently, the armed insurgents command was based on Turkish soil. There is no proof of a possible transfer of this command into Syria.
Nearly no mention is made in the Western media regarding the blatant act of censorship - an act that runs contra to all perceived notions of "Western values," and an act that directly undermines the narratives of the West supporting "freedom" and "democracy" around the globe.
The West has spent billions trying to leverage "freedom of speech" and "human rights" as a means to undermine, destabilize, overthrow, and replace governments around the world, from the US-engineered Eastern European "color-revolutions" after the fall of the Soviet Union, to the latest US-engineered "Arab Spring," and all across Southeast Asia. Now with the West pursuing its own campaign of censorship, it is clear that these "values" were merely selectively and opportunistically manipulated.
The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) explains that “we’ve not been producing as much as we are consuming. That is why stocks are being run down. Supplies are now very tight across the world and reserves are at a very low level, leaving no room for unexpected events next year.”
