BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 A.M.) – The United States does not believe that the Syrian people want President Bashar al-Assad as their leader any longer, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, claimed on Monday that the Syrian people do not want President Bashar al-Assad as their leader any longer.

This comes as only days earlier the White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, said that the USA needs to accept the reality that removing Assad is no longer the priority in Syria, and rather the defeat of ISIS is.

In support of Spicer, Haley told a small group of reporters on Thursday: “You pick and choose your battles and when we’re looking at this, it’s about changing up priorities and our priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out.”

She then contradicted herself and told ABC News on Sunday that “Assad is always a priority” and the United States wants to bring him to justice.

However, in her latest ramblings she stated that the Syrian people no longer want Assad.

“It’s that we don’t think the people want Assad anymore; we don’t think that he is going to be someone that the people want to have,” Haley told a news conference to mark the U.S. presidency of the U.N. Security Council for April.

“We have no love for Assad. We’ve made that very clear. We think that he has been a hindrance to peace for a long time. He’s a war criminal. What he’s done to his people is nothing more than disgusting,” she said.

In the 2014 Syrian presidential elections, Assad won with an overwhelming majority of 88.7%, which saw Syrians were capita come out and vote in a higher participation then in previous elections.

The 2014 elections were observed by lawmakers from neutral countries such as India, Brazil and Uganda who all declared the process to be “free and fair” and held in a “democratic environment, contrary to Western propaganda”.

The statement said “the Syrian people participated in the elections in total freedom, contrary to Western and regional propaganda that tried to fabricate a false narrative.”

“My view of what I saw in Syria was that people are very happy about the election and they seem to have waited for this moment for so long. The Western media has projected a view that the elections were forced on the people,” said Ugandan lawmaker Namugwanya Benny Bugembe, who visited several poll booths. “I did not see any force. People stood in long queues to vote. People were very excited about the election.”

The moran should be invited to Aleppo so she can personally tell the Syrians that. She will come back with a massive shoe collection, though probably all just one side.

You must have just about a quarer/third of Syrians who, if you do a DNA test, you will have the surprise to end knowing that they are… Jews 😆
And I’m not joking : most of the east Syria was King David’s or Solomon’s kingdom 😉

So you believe “history” based on Torah – jew fairy tale. Funny. Do you know how old is the oldest Torah? Only part of the Semites believe in this BS. But for you every semite is Jew.

But I’m glad you finally admit what you “chosen ones” actually want – a greater Israhell.

B.S. – How in h**l did the US get the results of a representative questioning or a referendum of the Syrian people? Without either all the US can do is BELIEVE. Assad won 2014 Syrian presidential elections. I know his term is not over yet and this matters in a democracy. And what a foreign power BELIEVES does not. p.s. And I also believe the US people do not want President Trump as their leader any longer. Because he is surrounded by dumb bitches. BTW Trump was elected by a minority not a majority of the US people because of… Read more »
