West must shake its tunnel vision on attacking Syria: expert
Lavrov also added that the West is blinded by the idea of regime change in Syria.
To assess Lavrov’s comments and how they might influence the course of events, VOR’s Rob Sachs spoke with Alexander Strakanov, director of the Institute of Russian History, Language and Culture at Lyndon State College in Vermont.
Strakanov pointed out that recent Western saber rattling vis-a-vis Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is a sharp contrast to previous years, when the West lauded Assad for maintaining stability. The rush to condemn Assad does not flatter the West.
