    The US government is providing its political support to the Syrian opposition and purposely destabilizing Syria, said President Bashar al-Assad in an interview. He praised Kofi Annan's peace plan, but said foreign interests were impeding its success.
    The Syrian President gave a rare interview to German news broadcaster ARD during which he addressed western political rhetoric that he was the main obstacle for peace in Syria.
    Assad said he still enjoyed public support in Syria, but "the United States is against me, the West is against me, many regional powers and countries and the people are against me."
    When asked whether or no the US had a hand in the conflict that has wracked the country for the past 16 months, he stressed they were "a part of the conflict."

    "They offer the umbrella and political support to those gangs to create instability (destabilize) or to destabilize Syria,"
    Assad told ARD.
    Assad further blamed armed gangs for the mounting death toll of the Syrian conflict. The UN estimates at least 10,000 people have been killed since violence first erupted in March of last year.
    These gangs are an amalgamation of al-Qaeda terrorist cells, outlaws and police fugitives who have eluded law enforcement authorities for years, said Assad. He added that "they had killed more security and soldiers maybe than civilians."
    The President categorically denied claims that Syrian government troops were behind the massacre in the city of Houla where over 100 civilians were killed.
    "Gangs came in hundreds from outside the city and attacked law enforcement units… then they killed many families, children and women," said Assad. He went on to say that the gangs were wearing army uniforms to try and incriminate the Syrian government, a well-known tactic used by opposition forces in Syria.

    Assad is the next target of the western super powers who have sworn to distabilise and torn-upart Arad -rich nations in their greedy ambition to control and own vital resources- OIL. They know that few decades to come The war Three will be fought scrambling for Water and energy, which by then be scarce a commodity. So who ever is against Assad is in one way or another is against his own existance.
