Speaking in Munich, Mr. Biden says he and President Obama, and their 'partners' and allies, have agreed that Assad is a tyrant and is no longer fit to
lead his Syrian people, and he must "go".
What the hell are we doing!?
"We can all agree... on the increasingly desperate plight of the Syrian people and the responsibility of the international community to address
that plight," he added.
We have already poured 50 million American dollars into what they call 'non-lethal assistance' to help the opposition become more cohesive and
AFP - US Vice President Joe Biden said on Saturday the US and its partners were pushing to help strengthen the Syrian opposition, insisting Syrian
President Bashar al-Assad was a "tyrant" and must go. Biden was speaking on the second day of security talks in the German city of Munich, where he is
later due to hold talks on Syria with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Syrian opposition chief Moaz al-Khatib.
So here again, our government has decided another leader is no longer fit to run his country so we must remove him.
Isn't that the same policy the current administration condemned upon Bush? Is there any truth that this 'opposition' is supported largely by Al-qaeda
and have repeatedly committed horrific war crimes, and human rights violations, while supporting the killing of US
Al-qaeda in Syria
But he referred to recent comments by US President Barack Obama, saying, "We are under no illusions, the days ahead will continue to be very
difficult but the opposition continues to grow stronger".
Russia play down talks with US and Syrian
He said it was "no secret" that Russia and the United States have "serious differences" on issues such as Syria.
I'm by far no expert on politics, but is the only reason we have our nose poked in this is because Assad is backed by Russia and Iran? Are there
weapons of mass destruction in Syria that pose a threat to us?
US Should Stay out of Syria
I've had a really bad feeling about all this from the start, boots on the ground or not, and I see this cauldron about to boil over right into our
The Syrian Civil War
