“Liquidating a regime will hardly facilitate successful progress in the fight against terrorism. It can make the region plunge (into) total chaos,” Dmitry Peskov, a Kremlin spokesman, told reporters according to the TASS news agency.

The comments seemed to be in response to a “dissent channel cable” signed by 51 State Department officers in which they advise a Syria policy of military strikes against al-Assad’s government, the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times reported.
