Tuesday’s print edition of the Syrian newspaper Al-Watan sported two interesting headlines on its first page. The left headline read “Syria harshly condemns the assassination of Russian ambassador Andrey Karlov,” while the right headline suggested “Russia acting to bring the quickest possible solution to the crisis in Syria.”
The Syrian regime’s newspapers dub the Syrian Civil War, which has taken the lives of hundreds of thousands of civilians, rendered millions of people homeless refugees and destroyed cities across the country, a “crisis.”
The message was crystal clear: after the Russian ambassador was murdered, an event that triggered a world war in the past century, it is in everyone’s best interest is to pour oil over the troubled waters of Syria.
