Hornet’s Nest: Czech President Criticizes US-Led Missile Attack on Syria


Czech President Miloš Zeman has commented on the April 14 missile attack on Syria, carried out by the United States, France and the United Kingdom in response to the alleged use of chemical weapons by Damascus.

Western countries have “stirred up a hornet’s nest” of geopolitical tension in the Middle East, the president of the Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman, said Sunday at the Prague F1 radio station, commenting on the latest missile strikes on Syria.

“The West has eminently stirred the Middle East. Firstly, they invaded Iraq, claiming that its authorities have weapons of mass destruction, though, in the end, they found nothing. This military operation brought enormous people losses, including the lives of American soldiers. Now, Kurds fight with the Iraqis, while the Iraqi Shiites fight the Iraqi Sunnis. I don’t even mention large financial losses,” Zeman said.

Rather than accepting the senselessness of the war, the West made another mistake — the operation in Libya, Zeman noted.

“Thanks to the ‘splendid’ intervention of the European Union, headed by France, Libya now not only lacks an ordinary government, but it’s also used as a transit point for thousands and thousands of illegal immigrants, who head to Europe,” Zeman said.
