Exclusive: Syria prints new money as deficit grows: bankers


www.reuters.com

Four Damascus-based bankers told Reuters that new banknotes printed in Russia were circulating in trial amounts in the capital and Aleppo, the first such step since a popular revolt against President Bashar al-Assad began in 2011.

The four bankers said the new notes were being used not just to replace worn out currency but to ensure that salaries and other government expenses were paid, a step economists say could increase inflation and worsen the economic crisis.

This looks like it's going to be a long haul for the U.S. in regards to toppling the regime. Russia seems firm in helping the government stay afloat by not only supporting them by printing money, but by supplying armaments and military equipment.

Syria definitely appears to be on the radar for the U.S., as they say" the road to Iran runs through Damascus." But it doesn't appear like that road will be so easy to tread.

Nah, we're too busy toppling our own regime to worry too much about Syria. We've been flooding our country with new unbacked currency for years now!

Good. The road to war should be a muddy, deadly one.

The US has no business being in Syria, or in controlling who they buy weapons from. If they did have business making those calls, then one could expect the same rights being granted to other countries. Russia has been vocal in their opposition to foreign intervention, but still recognizes the legitimate government of Syria. If engaged by the government of Syria, why shouldn't Russia sell them weapons? You know what is against international law, though? Supplying weapons to an insurrection. Not because they want the underdog to lose, but because it would allow other countries to push a "revolution" and force a regime change to something more suitable to their own designs... Like what Syria, Russia and China all say is occurring in Syria.

I'd guess that new banknotes issued by the regime will also be an economic weapon against the rebels - as soon as they think they have enough of hte new one in circulation through their own people they can withdraw acceptance of the old ones.

they can then force people to exchange them at "approved banks" or simmilar - which will only be in regime-held areas, and possibly after "checking" the person trying to make the exchange.

As a result rebel held areas will be left with banknotes that have no value - they might still use them for trade among themselves, but if the regime refuses to honour them then they won't be able to buy anything from outside the country or from regime held areas.

Syrian has always been protected by Moscow, It is of strategic importance to the Russians. It has been a pebble in Israel's boots for a long time. One need look no further to the Six-Day War and how of all the Arab nations involved, the retaliation against Syrian was the most moderated and was halted due to Moscow support.

It is not also by chance that Moscow is one of the parties involved on the several Palestine resolution processes, even now that Russia is by no means a superpower (even if it still remains a nuclear power)..

So you have no problem with Russia giving weapons to the Government to be used to kill its citizens? Your anti-American sentiment is clouding your judgement, what you are saying is sick,

The syrian government is not killing citizens indiscriminantly, it is fighting back the rebels who want to overthrow the regime. It is like armed militias of right wing origin declaring war on america and russia supplying them with weapons to overthrow the government.

Would not the american government be pissed at russia in this instance? I bet russians are pissed at america for helping the rebels and said enough is enough we will help the syrian government so that we can continue to have good relations with it.

You are trying to spin it around but look very silly in the process!

Absolutely no problems whatsoever. The Assad government is the legitimate government of Syria, these Rebels are simply US Agents paid to stir up trouble to clear the way for an eventual US invasion of Iraq, concluding the US colonisation of the Middle east and Pacific Asia.

I am anti-American, because Americans are anti-World. Deal with it.

Really?
Smith-Mundt Act of 1948
Foreign Relations Authorization Act of 1987

Look them up. Thanks. Its nice that you cant counter my statement and simply try to change topics.

Well how about we look at some non US sources.


Escalating violence has prompted the United Nations peacekeeping chief to become the first official from the global body to declare the Syrian crisis a civil war.

Defense Bill Legalizes US Propaganda
June 11, 2012

A new feature in the latest version of the National Defense Authorization Act would legalize U.S. government propaganda directed at the American people, with the belief that successful wars require domestic acceptance, writes Lawrence Davidson.

By Lawrence Davidson

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is misnamed, since it has less to do with defense than offense. The offensive it wages is not just against a growing list of alleged enemies of the United States but also, from a constitutional perspective, against the rights of American citizens and residents.

consortiumnews.com...


----------------
I suggest you look it up and stop spouting propaganda BS.and in 2007 General Wesley Clark stated that Syria is targetted for regime change.Your source is CNN.NDAA converts CNN to legal propaganda outlet.

But my government wouldn't do that, nor is the Syrian government doing that, the Free Syrian Army IS doing that to its own people, proven fact.

I hope these helicopters are useful in putting down these dogs and US Agents

Even Russia and China arent saying Syria isnt doing it. They just dont want to do anything about it. Thanks for being an admitted hypocrite, funny how hate does that to a person.
