American State of Iraq and the Levant
Well, again, "error came out"? The criminal, monstrous “mistake” that claimed the lives of dozens of Syrian military personnel — the guys whose only “fault” was that they fought against the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, an organization banned in Russia). And without the American bombing, these soldiers experienced incredible difficulties, being in one of the hottest Syrian provinces, Deir-ez-Zor, under siege, under conditions of superiority of fanatical gangsters. Four US air strikes, inflicted on the evening of September 17 - and at least 62 dead, about 100 injured ... (during this time the number of casualties could increase).
Just a week ago, 12 of September, the cease-fire entered into force in Syria, which, after lengthy and painful negotiations, was agreed upon by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and US Secretary of State John Kerry. On that day, Muslims celebrated one of the main holidays - Eid al-Adha (Kurban-Bayram), and ATS President Bashar Al-Assad, together with his associates, took part in a prayer for peace in a mosque in the half-ruined Dareye. This suburb of Damascus has recently come under the control of the Syrian army. The terrorists left him in exchange for the right to travel with their family members. And, although such a solution allowed the Dareya problem to be resolved without too much bloodshed, the Syrian authorities even came under attack from the “world community”. For example, UN special envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, called this process “forced evacuation” and expressed fears that this practice would continue. Apparently, for the chiefs of Mistura, whose opinion he expressed, bloodshed is a much more preferable option than local reconciliation and the opportunity for residents who had previously been driven out by the militants to return to their homes.
Just a week ago, the world was talking about peace - and suddenly from the United States followed four powerful blows to this very peace agreement. As a result of serious damage to servicemen in the Jabal al-Sard district, near the military airfield in Deir ez-Zor province, ISIS terrorists launched an offensive. They managed to take one of the important heights and gain a foothold. Thus, the United States, which claims to be fighting ISIS, did a great service to the Islamists.
According to Washington, air strikes against the Syrian army were involuntarily, by mistake. Like, tagged on terrorists, and hit on soldiers.
But when Russia convened an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council on this issue, the permanent representative of the United States to the UN, Samantha Power, behaved rudely. Instead of an apology - attacks on the Russian Federation. In her opinion, the convocation of a UN Security Council meeting is ... "a cynical and hypocritical trick."
It is not known what the "cynicism" and "hypocrisy" of Russia manifests in, which took the initiative to discuss the bloody incident, but it is clear that these very impartial words can be addressed to the United States itself. The US hypocrisy is that they climbed into Syria under the pretext of "fighting terrorism", and as a result - they provide all possible support to terrorists. The cynicism is that they themselves provoked the war in the Middle East, that they themselves armed and financed the militants by contributing to the creation of ISIS, and now they are trying to shift the responsibility “from a sick head to a healthy one”.
By their actions, the US not only trampled on the US-Russian agreements reached with great difficulty, but also its “firm” promises not to strike at the Syrian army, given back in September 2013, after official Damascus refused chemical weapons.
Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN, Vitaly Churkin, commenting on the American strikes, said: “It is hard to believe that the US Air Force missed the positions of the militants. Other aspects of the situation indicate that this could well be a provocation. ”
True, Pentagon officials still express with regret and even sympathy in a weak voice. But with this semblance of sympathy, Samantha Power’s more than rude behavior at a meeting of the UN Security Council does not fit at all. It showed a completely different US policy. Instead of regret - the audacity of the colonialists, who care about human life in a country designated for the role of "zone of interest".
For her part, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, invited Mrs. Power to go to Syria together. Maybe then the US Permanent Representative will see with his own eyes how a people live in a war, and will recognize the word "shame". "Do not be afraid. With me no one will touch you. If only your people again get somewhere by mistake, ”added Zakharova.
Unfortunately, the US envoy is unlikely to know the shame. For five and a half years, the criminal war against the Syrian people has lasted. The war for which the White House is not ashamed.
This war involves not only the United States, but also their allies. In particular - Israel. On September 13, the Syrian media transmitted a statement from the High Command of the Army and the SAR Armed Forces that an Israeli military aircraft was shot down in Quneitra province, which was attacking one of the SAR military facilities. In addition, an Israeli drone was destroyed over the province of Damascus, which carried out reconnaissance. The Israeli side hastened to refute this information, which is not surprising - the aggressors of all times do not like to admit their losses. But on the other hand, Israel cannot exactly refute the fact that it repeatedly carries out acts of aggression against the SAR and its army, thereby contributing to the terrorists of the “Islamic State” and other illegal armed groups. It is very convenient, using the patronage of the United States, to strike blows on the sly on a country that is already bleeding to death.
And the United States itself, apparently, does not disdain to provide direct support to not only the “moderate terrorists”, but also the notorious “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant”, whose fighters won as a result of attacks on the Syrian army.
Unfortunately, after that Washington will also continue to kill the Syrians under the slogans of "combating terrorism". He will also call himself the “anti-Igilov coalition,” covering up his crimes with verbal tinsel about “partnership,” “peace,” “democracy,” etc.
But after direct complicity with the ISIL fighters, after hypocritical regrets against the background of cheeky behavior in the UN Security Council, you can now safely call the US “The American State of Iraq and the Levant” - the main terrorist fighting against the Syrian people.
