THE most powerful countries in the world are issuing a “wall of silence”, according to senior media sources close to the Brute.
As the crisis in Syria following the assassination of president Assad spirals out of control, only France has publicly supported action. The ambassador for France at the UN claimed that the French Republic would be “doing everything… [we] can to swiftly act against Daesh and stop their movements.”
This could indicate an extension of France’s current involvement in Syria to a full-blown intervention. Most experts agree France would have to be supported by its NATO allies if it were to do this.
War in Syria risks raising the ire of Russian president Vladimir Putin, who placed troops in the country to assist Assad earlier this year, in a bold and outrageous move that stole NATO’s initiative.
The region is now at peak instability, with the power vacuum left by the murder of President Assad risking total collapse from the regime, and leaving the capital Damascus open to barbaric ISIS fighters.
