According To Syrian President Assad, U.S. and Russia Military Came ‘Close’ to Fighting Each Other In Syria

RT: ‘We were close to direct conflict between Russia & US inside Syria’ – Bashar Assad

Syrian President Bashar Assad says Moscow deterred the West from launching a devastating country-wide air strike last month, and believes that Damascus has nearly won the seven-year war, despite continued US “interference.”

“With every move forward for the Syrian Army, and for the political process, and for the whole situation, our enemies and our opponents, mainly the West led by the United States and their puppets in Europe and in our region, they try to make it farther – either by supporting more terrorism, bringing more terrorists to Syria, or by hindering the political process,” Assad told RT correspondent Murad Gazdiev, during a sit-down interview in Damascus, noting that without outside funding his opponents inside the country could be subdued “within a year.”

Assad is overreaching. Russia is co-operating with Israel to lessen the chance of Iran-Israel coming to battle; Russia said they support Kurdish participation in a future governance talks about the new structure of Syria. Russia is Assad's backer and shows it has flexibility and no desire for a wider war in Syria.

Assad's forces attacking the Kurd's and US is a nonstarter.
