American “partners” on the line: Ex-CIA head calls to “kill Russians” in Syria
Former CIA Head Michael Morell stated live on CBS that resolving the conflict in Syria means “covertly” killing Russians and Iranians. To this end, in his opinion, Washington should more actively support militants in Syria. He said: “When we were in Iraq, the Iranians were giving weapons to the Shi’a militia, who were killing American soldiers. The Iranians were making us pay a price. We need to make the Iranians pay a price in Syria. We need to make the Russians pay a price.”
“Making the Russians and Iranians pay the price, killing them?” CBS presenter Charlie Rose asked. The ex-head of the CIA confirmed: “Yes. Covertly.”
In Morell’s opinion, the Pentagon does not need to claim responsibility for this, but “you make sure they know it in Moscow and Tehran.” Then, in his opinion, the US should “scare” Syrian President Bashar al-Assad by killing his guards and “blowing up his office in the middle of the night.”
Morell is convinced the all of this will allow them to “push” Damascus, Moscow, and Tehran to find a “diplomatic solution.”
In an earlier article for the New York Times, Michael Morell endorsed Hillary Clinton in her fight for the presidency. Morell called her Republican Party competitor, Donald trump, an “unwitting agent” of Russia. Trump stated in reply that the ex-CIA chief is acting on orders of the White House.
P.S. What a wonderful character! It should be no surprise that he supports Clinton, around whom all the “rabid” hawks are gathered. What’s more, it is characteristic that he is not from the notorious “Cheney gang” which became the symbol of unbridled aggression. Morell rose through the CIA hierarchy under none other than Obama, becoming first deputy director and twice acting director. He is a creature of the Nobel Peace Prize winner. On the other hand, what Morell is talking about is not a one-sided game. Other countries can play it too.
