The Syrian War To Free Itself From The Evil US/Israel/NATO Criminal Cabal: Latest Updates, And Now Turkey Is Escalating Situation
The Kurds appear to have the upper hand ATM. Turkish forces are not battle hardened like the Kurds.
Erdogan could get a bloody nose in this venture. He also purged a large number of his most experienced military personnel after the coup attempt.
As soon as the leadership of one country calls the leadership of another country "brutal" or corrupt, red flags should go up everywhere!
“Total withdrawal would restore Assad and continue brutal treatment of his own people,” Tillerson said. (Tillerson outlines plan for long-term US military role in Syria", The Hill)
"US troops will remain in Syria to prevent the Syrian government from re-establishing control over the parts of Syria abandoned by a defeated ISIS. So the legitimate government of Syria will be prevented by an illegal United States military occupation from reclaiming its own territory? This is supposed to be a coherent policy?"
It is a dream to believe that others will get the message of the corruption going on with respect to the US involvement in these wars. I live in a small town and the drug traffic in this small town has grown exponentially over the past decade. The heroin use is as bad as any of the worst cities in the world on a per capita bases. This is because of the US involvement in the poppy industry of Afghanistan.
The truth about what is going on in Syria is not being read by many in the US. Most are listening to people like Tillerson and others that are either stupid or have sold there soul to the highest bidder. This is a world that is out of control. It is out of control because far too many are scared or too self serving.
Do something more than nothing to help fix this problem. Start with the self and take a stand on defending integrity and being honest. Bring the handshake back as a bond stronger than a legal contract. Talk to your neighbor about the deceit and lying that is in your face on almost every major media outlet on this planet. Stop lying to yourself and become a model and inspiration to those that walk this journey of life with you. NEVER LIE to yourself or anyone else and always practice the GOLDEN RULE.
Thanks Steve.So very true.Amazing the degree to which people are brainwashed in our country especially when you consider the insanely barbaric and cruel warmongering foreign policy that is accepted as normalcy.Madness.
Consequences of the US’s Kurdish policyWhat are the consequences of the US’s Plan C/’Kurdish’ strategy, and what are its prospects? In summary there are five:(1) it will prolong the conflicts in Syria and Iraq;(2) it is delaying the final defeat of Al-Qaeda and ISIS in Syria and Iraq;(3) it will make the Iraqi government align itself still more closely to Iran and Syria;(4) it will strengthen hostility within Turkey to the US, and may make Turkey more inclined to seek regional alignments with the US’s Middle East rivals and enemies: Russia and Iran;(5) it risks making the Kurds even more isolated in their region, whilst uniting the region against them.
We know that, without the permission of global forces and mainly Russia, whose troops located in Afrin, Turkey cannot attack civilians using Afrin air space. Therefore we hold Russia as responsible as Turkey and stress that Russia is the crime partner of Turkey in massacring the civilians in the region.
The problem for the west is that, as an endgame possibly approaches in Syria, it cannot afford to lose Turkish diplomatic support since Ankara has been the vital countervailing force to a Russian-imposed peace.The Turkish preoccupation with the Syrian Kurds on its borders could lead to the Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, reaching a deal with Damascus and Moscow.
The speech – in which the UK Foreign Office had a big hand – was something of a watershed and was under-appreciated in Europe. Previously, Trump’s policy on Syria was simply the destruction of Isis and an aversion to talk of nation-building. But the Tillerson speech has been widely criticised because it was long on aspiration but short on detailing the credible levers the US and the west have to pressure Moscow to abandon Assad.Western diplomats say they have some stakes in the ground: the threat to withhold EU and US reconstruction funds, the promise to keep 2,000 US troops inside Syria indefinitely and a slightly confused commitment to help the Kurds form a border force inside northern Syria. British ministers also repeatedly warn that a Russian-imposed peace that simply leaves Assad in charge would not only be morally reprehensible but unstable…..
The US can argue it tolerated Kurdish territorial expansions across northern Syria, and specifically west of the Euphrates river, only so long as the Kurdish militias inside the Syrian Democratic Forces were needed to defeat Isis, but now that battle has been won the US priority is to stop the freefall in its relations with Turkey. If that means a temporary Turkish foothold in the patchwork that is Syria, so be it.
Let us see if we can work with you to create the kind of security zone you might need.
“Regime change has been an absolute nightmare everywhere that we’ve had it. And the idea that we’re going to go into a civil war and take both sides out is of all of these wars the most ridiculous plan that I’ve heard yet.
And as far as standing back while hundreds of thousands of people die – no one seems to have a problem with doing that in Yemen right now because it’s not the regime that we want to overthrow, it’s the regime we support doing it.
This is insane! ISIS did not rise because we pulled out of Iraq because of a bad decision – we pulled out on Bush’s timeline because we had to because the government of Iraq was no longer going to protect our troops against war crimes.
ISIS rose because we overthrew Saddam Hussein and then we armed ISIS. We need to not intervene in this part of the world – it’s an immoral war, it’s an illegal war. Syria has not attacked America. We have no legitimate reason for our defense to be there, and this is exactly what Obama promised not to do, and what Trump promised not to do.”
Turkish bombs kill American 'advisers'....
