Syria accuses UN chief of encouraging militants

2012-04-28 12:02

Beirut - A Syrian government newspaper says UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon is encouraging militant attacks by focusing his criticism on the government.

Saturday's editorial in the state-run Tishrin daily comes a day after Ban said Syrian President Bashar Assad's continued crackdown on protests has reached an "intolerable stage".

Tishrin says Ban has avoided talks about rebel violence in favour of "outrageous" attacks on the Syrian government.

The Syrian capital was hit by four explosions on Friday that left at least 11 people dead and dozens wounded.

Assad's government blamed the blasts on "terrorists", the term the government uses to describe opposition forces that it says are carrying out a foreign conspiracy.

    They keep getting bombed by our tanks and shot by our snipers. The damn UN, instigators.

    The longer this is allowed to go on, the more room there'll be for Al-Quaida and Al-Quaida-like militants to infiltrate.

      So true, this assad keeps talking about terrorists, but he has seen nothing yet. This situation is drawing all kinds of "real terrorists" The day will come when this thug will realize, that his daddy gave him wrong advise. You want to start murdering your oppostion, than you have to murder every one of them, all 22 million of them !!!!!! Because the opposition that are alive, will NEVER EVER forgive him for murdering their family members, colleagues and friends !!!!

    I am not at all impressed with the UN, by the way, WHO exactly voted them in? I dont believe that any of us around the world even had a say in their plans, its high time we all got involved in having them do a massive "change of plans" in their way of running things

      You clearly don't understand what they mean by United Nations.

    I clearly do and it would involve having no rights and freedom, with the whole world being controlled by one body, New World Order, it is happening all over the world already and we loose all forms of independence on a daily basis, being forced into stero type "norms" which are not normal and having our rights taken away, i.e. we are not allowed to discipline our children any longer and what we teach them (good values and principles morals etc) are "no longer applicable" when they are taught at school etc, The UN want a "no border" world and much, much more, I understand them far more than most people actually

      New World Order and One Government are like Conspiracy Theories: fun to think about, but they're not actually happening. The United Nations is a body of 151 individual countries. It's a forum for discussion, humanitarian aid, and in some cases action taken on security and human rights concerns.
