E-mail Print PDF


Persian text http://kayhan.ir/fa/news/131253 

How do you assess the situation in Syria? What do you make of the on-again off-again accusations of chemical weapons? 

The US, French and British have effectively invaded Syria in order to overthrow the Syrian government after six fruitless years of arming and training rebels and inflicting 'advisers' and NGOs as part of their policy of subversion. This new boldness in promoting the imperial agenda worries the entire world from Russia, to China and Iran, and many in the West itself, where demonstrations have sprung up in the past few weeks as the US ramps up its campaign to topple Syrian President Assad.

The latest gas is actually an Israeli one, which was tested in the Gazans' Great March of Return in April.

TEHERAN, Jul. 19 (MNA) – Der kanadische Journalist und Experte des Nahen Ostens, Zentralasiens und Russlands meint, dass die türkische Version der sozialen Medien den „Arabischen Frühling“ in der Türkei anspornte.

Der kanadische Nahostexperte Eric Walberg ist der Meinung, dass die Rolle der sozialen Medien in der Türkei entscheidend war für die Mobilisierung einer breiten Öffentlichkeit, die innerhalb weniger Minuten auf die Straßen strömte, um den Präsidenten Erdogan zu unterstützen.

„Glücklicherweise  für Erdogan, war  das Militär anders als in Ägypten nicht so monolithisch wie in kemalistischen Zeiten, in denen es von einem rücksichtslosen General angeführt war, der eifrig daran arbeitete, die herangewachsene Demokratie zu zerquetschen“, sagte er. Walberg betonte, dass die türkische Version der sozialen Medien den spezifischen türkischen „Arabischen Frühling“ anheizte.

In einem Interview mit Mehr News, beantwortet Eric Walberg Fragen zum Thema.
