Syria and Russia at the UNGA

19 Sep

Everyone is focusing on Iran at the upcoming UN General Assembly meeting.

But what about Syria?

And Russia?

Assad recently received a major boost when the US and Russia reached an agreement over the fate of his chemical weapons. So he will be forgiven for having a spring in his step. The same goes for the Russians, especially Putin.

This will make the Russian and Syrian speeches at the UN also very interesting.

It will be interesting to see how Putin’s success re: Syria has impacted his position at home.

Also, is it just me or did you also notice how silent Hamas was when the idea of attacking Syria was being addressed by the Americans? Well, when Assad is bombarding Palestinian refugee camps in Syria, who can blame Hamas for not caring if Assad gets bombed?

In fact they could have been as disappointed as Israel when Assad was saved from America’s cruise missiles and fighter jets.
