      It is time for the U.S. to get out of its mercenary war in Syria - pushed by Saudi Arabia to establish a Sunni anti-Iranian regime there, and stop the carnage. Yes, the U.S. is not involved in Syria to establish a democracy there, as it claims hypocritically, but to oust Russia from Middle East, and from an anchor port in Syria for the Russian Navy. Enough slaughter of Syrians for 5 years for U.S. hegemonial Middle East objectives. Nikos Retsos,retired professor, USA
