BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The U.S. House of Representatives unanimously adopted a bill this week that would sanction anyone who does business with the Syrian government.

According to the bill, the U.S. President will sanction anyone who does business with or provides financing to the Syrian government, including the Syrian intelligence and security services, or the Central Bank of Syria.

The sanctions will target anyone who provides aircraft or spare parts for aircraft to Syria’s airlines; anyone who funds the construction and engineering projects controlled by the Syrian government; and anyone who supports Syria’s energy industry.

These new sanctions come just a month after U.S. President Donald Trump announced that his nation’s armed forces would be withdrawing from Syria.

When regime change did not work with enforced terrorism on Syria by various terrorist groups, Daesh & Turki backed FSA now Amrikans are resorting to arm twisting by economical means.

First they destroy the nation and like the sore losers that they are because Syria did not bend to the US dictates , now they want to punish them for doing so .
In many ways that is a perfect example of barbarians and criminal irresponsibility .
Syria will survive in spite of US interference.They do have real friends.

These Zionist economic terrorists are the lowest form of human life. Even worse than ISIS since they are no less inhumane but even more cowardly.

They need to all be arrested for supporting terrorist under US law they are all guilty of giving aid and comfort to terorist and there supporters. 20 years in jail for the lot of them would make most Americans happy. Except the newly imported zionist…. they want to burn up this nation

Most people dont know the corporat media counts the votes and gets to hype up a Mythic 50/50 political split in this country with a 95% incombant reelection rate. That’s worse then the old communist USSR politburo that had no fake public voting sham

More interesting is that Putin and Erdogan just met and talked over Syrian conflict. Most troublesome words said from Putin regarding Syria is that “everything is going according the plan”. So, we will see…

I just noticed that the F/UK/UK plus Germany have interfered in the plan and made the UN official Mistura wait for THEIR input to “help” Syria, so who know what happens from now on?

So retarding, they know they are not going to be invited and their corporations would not make a penny out of Syria, so they want to make sure nobody gets benefits. Typical bully behavior…

IMHO, it’s an indirect way of pressuring Assad into “thanking” IRGC then asking them to leave Syria. Any way, Syria’s neutrality is the key to stabilise the Levant. Assad should really consider it and could even make it an efficient lever to get serious benefits for Syria in the end : dropping Iran and Hezbollah and building good neighbourhood with Israel could really open opportunities to make Syria pretty wealthy and living in peace with a bright future while teaming with bloodthirsty Khamenei and Nasrallah can only end making Syria, which has already suffered years of an horrible armed conflict,… Read more »
