Syria preparing for War

From Al Jazeera 

Bashar al-Assad, Syria’s president, has said that a war with Israel cannot be ruled out as long as a lasting peace eludes the Middle East.

“In principle, we expect that there will be an Israeli aggression at any time. We all know that Israel is militarily powerful and is backed directly by the United States,” al-Assad said in an interview with Kuwait’s Al-Anbaa daily published on Saturday. 

“We can’t debate whether to be prepared or unprepared. We must remain always prepared.”

The Syrian president said Israel had abandoned the Middle East peace process since [former prime minister] Ariel Sharon came to power in 2001.

Who has Israel had to work with in the peace process? Certainly not Assad since his government not only refuses to recognize Israel’s right to exist but also continues to support the terror groups like Hamas and Hizbollah who’s stated goal is to eliminate the Jewish State.
