The fact that the European Union at the end of May renewed its own sanctions against Syria, also in violation of international law, was not even mentioned in passing by the Tagesschau. (…) The sanctions (“maximum pressure”) are already formally incompatible with international law.
In the case of Syria, the West has no right to force a change in the office of the president. To further destroy the economically already ruined country and to accept countless deaths (…) is incompatible with all international legal norms.
In addition to a bombing war, partial occupation and the theft of Syrian oil resources, now this US-EU “support for the Syrian people”: it is now forced to starve. (…) All of the EU and the US try to cloak and justify the criminality of their own politics with absurd accusations of guilt against Assad (“poison gas attacks”, “barrel bombs on their own people”).
