A political transition in Syria is not only necessary for the good of its nation, but also in order to defeat the extremists operating in the Middle East, according to the US Department of State.
The resignation of Syria’s President Bashar Assad is “an important part of the fight” against the Islamic State (ISIL) militant organization, the US Department of State said Friday.
The statement came after US Special Envoy for Syria Michael Ratney’s visit to Moscow earlier on Friday for consultations with Russian officials on the ongoing conflict in Syria.
“Assad has proven through his brutal and repressive tactics that he has lost all legitimacy, and he must go as part of a genuine political transition,” the statement said.

Never mind that Civilian Death tolls have increased since the US began targeting ISIL. The West is partly responsible for the arming of ISIL in Syria when we assisted the so called ‘Rebels’ back when the Fake chemical attack occurred. Is anyone actually believing this total manipulation of the truth by the US Government ?
Assad as with many of the middle eastern dictators of times gone past is not necessarily the most idyllic human beings – However in comparison to the damage the US & Allies have put upon the middle east over the last few decades he is almost saintly.
