Europe to "pay the price" for arming Syria rebels:President Bashar al-Assad

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad
BERLIN,- Europe will "pay the price" if it sends arms to Syrian rebel forces, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad warned on Monday in an interview with a German newspaper.

"If the Europeans deliver weapons, then Europe's backyard will become terrorist and Europe will pay the price for that," the Syrian president said in the interview with Germany's Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper.

The United States decided last week that Washington would ramp up its involvement in Syria' s conflict, following a U.S. investigation accusing the use of chemical weapons by Syrian government forces.

In his first comments since the U.S. announcement, al-Assad warned that arming the rebels would lead to terrorism in Europe, denying claims that Syrian forces had used chemical weapons in the conflict.

Up to now, at least 93,000 people have been killed in the conflict that began in March 2011 between the government and forces seeking to oust President al-Assad.

The ongoing G8 summit in Northern Ireland is expected to focus on Syria.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
