“Russia does not support the Assad regime, but rather works in the interest of the Syrian people and regards ending the ongoing violence in the country as its priority, Lavrov said.

The US, the British, the French and indeed the Israelis are now apoplectic,” said Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley in an interview with Press TV on Friday.

“That’s what you see with Fabius. I would call attention to the language he decided when he says the Syrian regime should be smashed fast,” Tarpley added, referring to recent remarks by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius.

On Friday, the French foreign minister said, “The Syrian regime should be smashed fast… Bashar al-Assad doesn’t deserve to be on this earth.”

“This is a language we haven’t heard in Europe since the fascist era. This is the language of a fascist dictatorship and, well, Fabius is not quite that yet but you get the idea. It’s going in that direction,” Tarpley stated. (emphasis added) (2)
