Thanks to brother Fares for this.
[Here's chomsy lining up with nato on the Libya issue.]
Noam Chomsky in an interview today with Al Akhbar Arabic said that "the
main problem in the Syrian conflict is Russia who is arming the Syrian
government while still inviting all sides to negotiations." He then
praised the US who is "showing self-restraint, opposes arming the rebels
and supports real negotiations."
Additionally, he said that "Israel does not oppose Assad and that he's
almost the dictator they want who has done everything they have wanted."
He said the "US does not oppose Assad who has collaborated with them,
despite not completely liking him, what he has done is enough for US to
let him stay." He based this analysis on the fact that Israel and US did
not station troops in Golan to help the Syrian rebels which can only
mean that they do not want the Syrian regime to fall.
He also condemned Hezbollah for aiding the Syrian Army on battles near
the Lebanese borders and said that the Lebanese seem to be ignoring real
threats of Israel implying it can easily wipe out the entirety of
Lebanon soon if they wanted to.
