Russia: Forces Unable to Destabilize Syria Turn to Lebanon

Forces which have failed to implement their plans to destabilize Syria have turned to Lebanon, Russian’s foreign ministry said on Monday.

"Moscow is seriously concerned by growing internal tensions in Lebanon. It appears that the forces that have failed to realize their plans to destabilize Syria have turned to neighboring Lebanon," the ministry said on its website.

"They clearly dislike this country's government course aimed at preventing foreign intervention in Syrian affairs and facilitating a swift peaceful settlement in Syria on the basis of Kofi Annan's plan approved by the United Nations Security Council, and the actions of military and security agencies opposing arms smuggling attempts and the trafficking of militants," the ministry said.

To attain their goals these forces are trying to stoke tensions among various Lebanese political and sectarian forces, the ministry added

These forces have been operating out of Turkey and are heavily backed by Western interests. Rather than a broad popular uprising we are seeing huge outside support for a small opposition group. The danger is that the targeted countries may collapse into a disastrous mess like what we have seen in Iraq and Libya. This is not good for the people living there, who tend to get displaced or killed, but it is a bonus for the Western supporters of these insurgents.
