US threatens Syria with more unrest

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has issued another threat to the Syrian government, vowing that it will face more unrest unless it implements swift reforms.

In her recent visit to Lithuania, Clinton boasted that the clock was ticking for Syria, demanding for Damascus to “begin a genuine transition to democracy" or face an increasingly organized resistance, a Press TV correspondent reported.

Clinton's remarks come amid Washington's publicity campaign to drum up support for a UN Security Council (UNSC) resolution against Syria.

Russia has repeatedly said it will not support a UN resolution against Syria, stressing that the Syrians should resolve their differences without any outside interference.

Some analysts have cast doubt on Clinton's advocacy of “democracy” in Syria, insisting that it is part of a US effort to impose its hegemony over Syria.

“I think the United States wants a political prize from Syria. They are not interested in reforms inside Syria, because the United States wants to [create a] divide between Iran, Hezbollah and Syria, because it is strategically very important for the United States and Israel,” political analyst Bassam Abdallah said.

Syria has been experiencing unrest in the past months, with demonstrations held both against and in support of President Bashar al-Assad's government. Hundreds have been reported killed when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes between alleged protesters and state security forces as well as organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards in north of the country.

Meanwhile, in a Thursday address, Iran's Leader of the Islamic Revolution described Syria as a frontline state in the resistance against Israel, insisting that recent unrest in the country has been propped up and actively supported by US and Israeli elements outside the country and that in no way does it resemble recent popular uprisings in the region

“The United States is now looking to withdraw from Iraq and they want to prepare a strategic environment or atmosphere in the region and it is important for them for the oil and we should not forget that there is a competition between the United States, Russia and China on the international level so we should understand that the United States is looking for its interests,” Abdallah said.

“Foreign governments want any reason to take down the Syrian government, but we are happy [with] what we are. We don't need Americans to involve. Look what they did in Libya. They only make problems worse,” said a common Syrian citizen.
