Assault on IS the only intl action should be taken in Syria, rest to cause prolonged war – Salmond

Relations between the United Kingdom and Russia, which are engulfed in media scandals, sanctions threats, and fears about a new world war, have hit a new low recently, but is there room left for cooperation on the most important international issues? And, with Britain already divided over how to deal with the coming Brexit, can it stay united on the diplomatic front? Scotland’s former first minister, UK MP, and SNP international affairs spokesman – Alex Salmond – is on SophieCo today.

Syrian War is not a civil war at all, but an invasion one, since most of the "moderate mercenaries" come from about 80 countries and are paid by Saudi and Quatar gobs, and sponsored by west.

The US and its proxies have to cut funds and arms to Isis and other US funded terrorists for US interests. Simple as that. It would stop end this conflict.

06:00 thats just your opinion that holds no value. Syrian people asked for help, and they got it.

Bottom line is: Life was much better in the U.K. and U.S. prior to big Bush’ ‘Desert Shield’ farce. He permitted Hussein’ attempted annexation of Kuwait, then betrayed him by relabeling it as an invasion. It has been 20+ years since our ‘intervention’ in the ME and today it is neither safer nor tolerant of western culture/nations. U.S.-Muslim hostilities and casualties have only increased with very little to show in terms of achieving our goal of…I have no fu*king idea….??? There is no doubt that I would’ve been terminated from my occupation had my actions/policies led to a disaster of… Read more »

So an intelligent and famous member of UK parliament former leader of Scottish National Party and so many other titles is advising "TO END THE CIVIL WAR (IMPOSED TERRORIST ATTACK) IN SYRIA RUSSIA MUST STOP KILLING THE TERRORISTS!" So sorry for people in UK with such a intelligent MPs

11:35 This idiot equates criminal US regime change in Iraq with legal Russian regime preservation in Syria.

this guy is the typical politician and is full of **!

Salmond?  A prime example of career politicians, e.g. able to talk at the greatest possible length, without actually saying anything of substance.  Also the ability to never give a straight "yes" or "no" answer.  Plus the ability to never stray far from the elite/PTB status quo, whilst occasionally mouthing meaningless "opposition".  In other words, just another empty suit/talking head. with a guaranteed pension in mind, after umpteen years of achieving NOTHING – much like the priesthood of olden times.

RedC53

Just a guess here but this guy sounds like a globalist. Iraq can invite someone to fight for them but Syria can't and he doesn't see the contradiction.

US were invited by Iraq Govt to eliminate terrorists yet they are funding them Al-Qaeda/ISIL/ISIS, and these same scums return back to Syria as Al-Nusra to create anarchy and topple Asad Regime…
The same regime which is your Syrian Govt elected by Syrian people that invited Russia to eliminate these scums…
Yet we see double standards by US, who has this habbit of bullying other nations..
But Russia is not your average Iraq so hold your horses and wakeup from your slumber…

What planet dos Alex Salmond live on? All of the Sunni groups fighting in Syria are Wahhabist they follw the Quaran and Hadiths to the letter. Therefore there are no modern humanist interpretations. If you want to see just how brutal and oppresive Wahhabism is take a closer look at Saudi Arabia and the cruel punishments they deal out for minor offences and how they oppress their women.
So how could any of these groups possibly be considered moderate?
The only moderate secular group in Syria is Assads government.

In democracy lack of information for commoners keeps anarchy away. Otherwise everyone would revolt.

This guy is sick in the head.He is simply saying you can intervene in Mosul Where there are over a million civilians but you can not intervene in eastern Aleppo where there 250,000 civilians.And he is also saying you can't even fight terrorist in Syria because of civilians ,but you can fight them in Iraq regardless.

Alex Salmon is a big fool. I have met people who work for the council in Scotland and they usually are very detached from their own people and reality. Scotland has had a fraction of the immigration of the UK. Alex supports wind farms but there is no way Scotland can maintain all those wind turbines off its own back, they need someone else to give them the money. They have wasted their money on wind farms and let their nuclear power stations get old and out dated, they face massive problems and the SNP is to deluded to solve… Read more »
