Syrians vote for democracy and western leaders are unhappy
Syria’s referendum on a new democratic constitution saw a turnout of 57% and out of those who voted 89% voted in favour of the new constitution.
The vote is a historic one, for as Russia Today reports : “it puts an end to five decades of one-party rule"
And what’s been the reaction of western leaders- so keen to trumpet their support for democracy- to this great move forward for democracy in Syria?
It’s ’a cynical ploy’ says Hillary the Hawk Clinton.
It’s a ‘sham’ says Guido Westerwelle, German Foreign Minister.
And the oh-so democratic EU responds to this very positive move by imposing even tougher sanctions on Damascus.
As I've said all along, the very last thing the west wants in Syria is democracy. All they are interested in is toppling President Assad and installing a new puppet government in Damascus which will change the country's foreign policy.
