Press TV has conducted an interview with Mark Glenn, an author and journalist in Idaho, about US President Barack Obama’s recent remarks that there is no “military solution” to the conflict in Syria, days after Washington announced plans to train anti-Damascus militants.
The following is a rough transcription of the interview.
Press TV: Mr. Glenn, can these waters get any murkier coming out of Washington? Why would you start training the so-called moderate militants to prolong a war, and then turn around and say that there is no military solution to the war?
Glenn: Right, this is what Obama has to do in order to maintain this illusion that what is taking place on the ground in Syria is anything other than a Zionist and American plot to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad through means less personally demanding than what the Americans had to do with regards to Iraq.
It is not a complicated problem as Obama said… the situation on the ground in Syria is a very simple problem to understand. It is one word long and it is spelled I.S.R.A.E.L, Israel. Israel is the only beneficiary in the region who stands to gain from all the turmoil talking place in Syria.
