Obama and Erdogan are leading their nations to disaster in Syria.
As the Assad regime's friends and foes headed for a showdown at the United Nations on Wednesday, Syrian Prime Minister Wael Al-Halqi accused the West of inventing excuses to intervene and warned that the country would become a “graveyard” for any invaders.
“Western countries, starting with the United States, are inventing fake scenarios and fictitious alibis to intervene militarily in Syria,” he said, quoted by state television.
“Syria... will be the graveyard of the invaders,” he added.
Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Muqdad went a step further and accused the West of having pushed rebels fighting Assad to use poison gas as a pretext for an intervention.
“The terrorist groups used sarin gas in several areas of the country... with the encouragement of the Americans, the British and French,” he told reporters.
