Bashar el Assad said : "President Assad: This is what I meant when I said that in this age we need to unify. This doesn’t mean becoming a single state in the same way that old states existed in the past, in large extended empires. Today we can unify through our interests at least. For instance, we can build railways, different forms of land transport, gas, oil, electricity, all forms of energy, hence creating networks between our countries in this extremely strategic region of the world which lies between the five seas. This in itself will bring a lot of investment into the region, creating a great deal of prosperity and making these states and their peoples strong enough to face any foreign intervention."
Could it be one of the reasons why the West is assaulting his country?
Have you stopped beating your wife yet? Will the west stop "assaulting" Syria if it gets rich?
Hard to stop an assault that isn't happening.
In any case, though, it is to the west's advantage to have a civilized, reasonably wealthy near east. It would fill the sink hole the west pours money into in an effort to develop the region, it would provide more customers for western production and it would stop the violence of the region, which inevitably overflows into western countries (911 comes to mind).
I'm wondering to which violence of the region are you referring to? It is to the advantage of the West to pilfer countries that don't have nuclear weapons to deter them from illegal actions? Do you really think that the US, Britain, Germany and co would impunitively attack Syria if it detained such a weapon?
Since when did the West pour money for nothing? Don't they do it to buy the government and dispose of economical gains? Obviously not! It is pure philanthropy.
911 was an inside job. And you are right it overflowed over Europe. Bombings were manufactured in Spain and England. An MI6 agent acknowldged that the bombings in London were an inside job. France recently used a teenager and pretended that he was responsible of a killer spree... It gave the French parliament the right to infringe on its citizens' freedom. Does it remind you of another country? Indee the US. The leader in this matter.

Why are people so afraid of Trump becoming President?Do they think he might do good and make the country great again. The U.S. is no longer a world leader in much of any thing. Some countries call us a third world nation now. Others say the U.S. can not be trusted anymore.
