British journalist: Trump fights with Assad

The correspondent of the British newspaper The Independent believes that Mr. Trump is leading a war in Syria not with terrorists at all, but with President Assad’s army. Russians, the Assad army and Iran are fighting with terrorists in Syria.


British journalist: Trump fights with Assad

Donald Trump. Video frame: “The Independent”


The United States is more likely to strike at the troops of President Assad, rather than fight the "IG" (forbidden in the Russian Federation). Writes about this in «The Independent» Middle East correspondent Robert Fisk.

And the whole West as a whole is much more outraged by the use of chemical gas, which is accused of the “Assad regime”, than by the brutality of the militants of “IG”.

The destruction of the Syrian fighter by the Americans has little to do with the fight against terrorists, but it fits into the strategy of fighting against the Syrian army: the latter was just advancing in the area near the Kurdish troops supported by the Americans.

The American attack, the journalist said, was a warning to the Syrians: keep, they say, away from the "Syrian democratic forces." The author reminds that Kurds and several Arab divisions are fighting under this sign. The Kurds can take Rakku, about which Moscow and Washington, probably, can agree, but the Syrian military is much more interested in freeing Deir-ez-Zor. The map is changing literally every day. But the Syrian military, Hezbollah, Iran and the Russians are still successfully fighting against IS and those militants who are fighting along with IS.

At the same time, the United States "greatly exaggerates" the number of Iranian forces in Syria, perhaps because it corresponds to the Saudi and American propaganda stamps about "Iranian expansion." But the success of the Assad army certainly worries both the Americans and the Kurds.

So who in the Middle East is fighting the "IG"? And who does not fight?

Russia claims to have recently destroyed al-Baghdadi, the self-styled caliph of the Islamic State. Russia declares that it hits the "IG" with rockets. “The Syrian army, supported by the Russians, is fighting the IG,” the correspondent indicates. “I saw it with my own eyes.”

But America attacks Assad airbase near Homs, then Assad's allies near At-Tanfa, and now it is shooting down one of Assad’s fighters. It seems that Washington is now attacking Assad, and it does it much more openly than before. At the same time Washington attacks Iranian supporters of Assad. The fight against Assad, the United States clearly prefer to fight with "IG". And this is consistent with the policy of Saudi Arabia. So this is what the Trump regime is seeking, the journalist sums up.

So what are the goals of Washington? The author of the note suggests that the goal may be to split Syria into parts and turn it into a failed state.

There is, we add, the second question: will the American campaign against Assad lead to success, if Moscow, defending its ally Assad, targets the coalition planes attacking the Syrian army?

      The United States clearly prefers the fight against Assad over the struggle against ISIS. And this is in line with Saudi policies. So this is what the Trump regime is seeking, the journalist sums up.

      Naturally. yes Trump, like a real business man fulfills a military order from camels, as a politician he looks like pah and grind.

        it’s not necessary to shoot down American planes, but to gouge the allies is just as cynical and openly worth it, for example, art. a battery in Ukraine, which didn’t even fire a shot, to state that it threatened. to heap a couple of Kurdish units that organized the corridor bearded. and most importantly, do it openly. bomb any base, apologize, and say "wrong." act in a mirror.

          Your question requires deep philosophical analysis and justification.
          Try not to drink, put your thoughts on the shelves, then mix them up and lay them out again. Although, if you drink up to, during the time the result is sometimes terrific from the rapid flight of thought.

    1) The Americans built a ship. They tried to shove a bunch of electronics minus weapons of defense, no new physical principles of the ship’s propulsion system itself, leaving only blocks of offensive missiles and weak air defense. The cannon was not mastered by the electromagnetic gun railgun, the shape of the "stealth" iron was given to the hull. It turned out a controversial product according to its characteristics.
    2) The Americans held elections by a representative system, which is not completely democratic, received by the president not the one most voters wanted.
    3) Americans storm Mosul on the Soviet patterns of the storming of Budapest in 1944. A sea of ​​fire and the destruction of all bridges. All this is accompanied by mass deaths of civilians, which the Pentagon does not care at all.

    1) Our shipbuilders put what they consider necessary without stupid PR.
    2) The controversy lay in the characteristics of the entire ship, not the railgun, read carefully.
    3) As regards the electoral model, I am for democracy, but only for genuine, and not bourgeois, and even less so Greek policies. Genuine democracy is when a candidate is nominated from a settlement or labor collective and judged by deeds, and not by the "party program" and the slogans of hired PR managers. As for Hitler, this is an excellent example of bourgeois democracy, an Austrian in 2 weeks received a German passport to get to the polls.
    4) As for the "careful attitude to the life of fighters", then look at the statistics of the deaths of civilians to the deaths of soldiers, it is monstrous. Today 1 killed soldier falls on 1000 civilians. But in your opinion this is normal.

    it’s not necessary to shoot down American planes, but to gouge the allies is just as cynical and openly worth it, for example, art. a battery in Ukraine, which didn’t even fire a shot, to state that it threatened. to heap a couple of Kurdish units that organized the corridor bearded. and most importantly, do it openly. bomb any base, apologize, and say "wrong." act in a mirror.
    because you see they provoke us, and you answer the provocation. and the second time no one wants to provoke.

    .. the answer will come very simple and effective - our VKS will pass through the right territory and our axes are quite possible .. and the tip will be very effective - luxury, and the guys from the old Arbat will highlight and sing a song ..

    You wrote your comment, just to somehow oppose me? If it was written for this, then commenting on your nonsense no longer makes sense. You do not read what I write.

      Oh, I see you are the master of the discussion in "samdu * ak" mode _ why search for the right arguments? do you write the truth your opponents are nonsense ideal or is that virtual shoulder straps an argument in itself? and should everyone respectfully agree?
