US announces more support for White Helmets in Syria The Trump administration is doubling down on backing the White Helmets, the self-proclaimed so-called civil defense group with often controversial activity in terrorists-held areas of Syria, pledging a $5 million donation at a conference.

Hussein Askary: By assassinating General Soleimani in Iraq, Trump Administration has put the world into new uncharted waters

Hussein Askary is an Iraqi-born Swedish citizen. He is the Southwest Asia Coordinator of the International Schiller Institute. Askary has worked as an economic and strategic analyst on Southwest Asia and North and East Africa for the Washington-based weekly magazine Executive Intelligence Review since 1996. He is the co-author of several books on the New Silk Road strategy and its impact on the world economy.

The following is the full text of the interview:

Q1: The White House and the Pentagon claimed responsibility for the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani in Iraq, saying the attack was carried out at the directives of US President Donald Trump. As you know, commander Soleimani was an international figure representing the Axis of Resistance.

Anti-daesh Warriors

The illegitimate and criminal US targeting of anti-daesh (ISIS) warriors and resistance heroes on Baghdad Airport Highway does add more of savagery, criminality and absurdity to the non-stop US recklessness and blatant support to daesh and all other terrorist organizations.

The US flagrantly liquidated  some of the top and best fighters against terrorism in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, if not worldwide! President Trump's, not to mention others' please-do-it, order to assassinate such high ranking  officials from the Axis of Resistance and  of the oppressed backers,  is but a turning point in modern history!

The Chinese (Belt and Road) Initiative ... an economic rise and a blow to American influence in the region

Yesterday, President Bashar Al-Assad praised the "Belt and Road" initiative launched by China, considering that it constituted a strategic shift at the level of international relations in the world, especially as it relied on partnership and common interests instead of Western domination attempts. In a speech earlier, Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah called for cooperation with China to avoid economic collapse, so how will this Chinese initiative return to Syria and neighboring countries? Will it actually lead to economic stability?

China's role highlighted

The Syrian-Chinese relations are crucial to the reconstruction and building operations in Syria, plagued by about 9 years of foreign-backed war by multinational terrorists.

President Assad made it clear, in his recent Chinese Phoenix Television interview that the most important stage in reconstruction, which comes later and constitutes the most serious challenge for us, is restoring daily activity especially economic livelihood.
