Sayyid Muqtada al-Sadr's statement on the US bombing on Syria
In the name of the Allah Almighty
The American president should not exaggerate in his statements, his positions and his thoughtless decision. This would not only be harmful to America, but also would be harmful to the international community. He must not incite himself in a new holocaust, which may be paid by all. Syria may be another Vietnam for them.
And it cannot be unreasonable to apply double standards, as he is bombing the unarmed civilians in Mosul and at the same time he denounces the condemned bombing of the civilians with nuclear ... Is it not enough for Syria to have all hands on it from inside and outside, so that America's negative role will also come and the harmed side is the Syrian people.
I do not rule out that Trump's decision to bomb Syria is to authorize Daesh to expand in other areas. America is often a sponsor of terrorism and we are used to that by many times.
If America wants to be a sponsor of peace, it should support dialogue and save peoples in all regions, whether in Palestine, Burma, Bahrain or other areas and not be inclined to one side rather than others. Let everyone know that America's military intervention will not be useful. It has declared its bombing Daesh in Iraq but terrorism is still on our holy land, and its intervention has never been absolutely useful.
In my opinion, such decisions will drag the region into conflict, especially with the presence of other banners claiming to be liberator or savor to the wounded Syria, which has become the cause of political abhorrent conflicts. Therefore, I call on everyone to withdraw from Syria to take the people the control. The Syrian people has the only right to self-determination. Otherwise, Syria will be a rubble that is the only beneficiary is occupation and terrorism.
This is what is required of Russia and other units, but I find it fair that President Bashar al-Assad should resign and withdraw from power for the beloved Syria to avoid the scourge of war and the terrorist control. The control should be given the control of power to popular bodies that can stand against terrorism to save Syrian territories before in quick time o have a heroic historical position before it is too late and when it is regrettable
