Syrian president warns US against attack as Obama continues push for air strikes


Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has warned the United States against striking his country and denied using chemical weapons against his own people, as President Barack Obama prepares to embark on a media campaign Monday to push for air strikes on Syria and Congress reconvenes from its summer recess.

In a CBS interview, his first with an American television network in two years, Assad said an attack by international forces may prompt retaliation from Syria's allies. He also denied that he was behind the chemical weapons attack on the Syrian people, and said evidence was not conclusive that there had been such an attack.

Involvement in the Syrian war runs against the interests of the United States, said Assad during the CBS News interview. He also warned about "repurcussions" if the U.S. strkes Syria: "Expect every action," he said.

The full interview will be broadcast Monday, the same day that Congress reconvenes, and will be juxtaposed against a spate of interviews by Obama as he pushes for the authorization of air strikes in Syria. Obama will tape interviews with six media networks, including PBS, CNN and FOX News.

"There has been no evidence that I used chemical weapons against my own people," CBS on Sunday quoted Assad as saying in an interview conducted by Charlie Rose in Damascus.

Meanwhile, the Russian and Syrian foreign ministers on Monday called for the return of United Nations inspectors to Syria to continue their probe into the use of chemical weapons.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that U.N. chemical weapons experts should complete their probe and present their findings to the U.N. Security Council.

what you tax you get less of, what you subsidize you get more of.

Feed the poor and they will multiply like rats.

They are Always looking for a freebee. hey why bother to work when government will just give it to you??

Look at what welfare did to the black community in America, they are slaves to welfare unable & unwilling to fend for them selves, unable unwilling to support the kids they produce which condemns those kids to live in slums attend substandard schools, gang infested ( like rats) neighborhoods.
