BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt stated on Thursday that Syrian Presient Bashar Al-Assad will remain in power for “a while.”

Despite his reluctance to accept Assad’s role in Syria’s future, he did say that it will be up to Russia to secure a peaceful solution inside the country.

“The British long-standing position is that we won’t have lasting peace in Syria with that (Assad-led) regime, but regretfully, we do think he’s going to be around for a while,” Hunt told Sky News.

Cry me a river, British imperialists!
My long-standing position is that we won’t have lasting peace in the world with your (Zionist-led) regime, but regretfully, I do think it’s going to be around for a while, too.

Unfortunately zio Jew muppets like Mr hunt will infect Briton for some time and relentlessly bark their deluded agenda and lies on media outlets. I’m actually surprised US/UK and allies didn’t carpet bomb the civilian population of Damascus like they did to Berlin in ww2. Raqqa and Mosul got a taste of it tho.
