You didn’t wait for us, and we came to a leg: the US is preparing to attack Abu Kemal



The closer the Syrian government forces are to victory over terrorist groups, the more participants in the conflict want to share the upcoming success with Damascus. Some do, and they expect to assign this success ...

On Saturday, it became known that the anti-terrorist coalition led by the United States is planning an offensive against the Syrian city of Abu Kemal in the province of Deir ez-Zor. This was announced by the official representative of the allied forces, Colonel Ryan Dillon.

According to him, at the moment it is necessary to “consolidate the successes achieved by the Syrian democratic forces in the Omar oil fields and continue to clean the areas that are still the territory of the Islamic State (banned in Russia) ... after which an operation should be prepared to free Abu "Kemal."

It is noteworthy that this statement was actually made on the eve of the attack of the Syrian army on this settlement, which, according to the latest information, is the only stronghold of extremists in the above region. If we take into account that before this official Damascus, with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces in less than a month, freed almost the entire province of Deir ez-Zor from Islamic radicals, causing the latter enormous damage, a reasonable question arises: why did the United States decide to act in this area when were there only a few days left before the final victory of the government forces, and there are simply no prerequisites for the reverse situation?

Presumably, this state of affairs means Washington's final disclosure of its plans. Since 2014, when the international coalition launched the so-called anti-terrorist operation, the White House and the Pentagon have unanimously argued that the main and only goal of the allies in Syria is the destruction of international Islamic organizations. However, the results of their activities indicated the opposite. Suffice it to say that for a year of undivided rule in Syrian territory, right up to the arrival of the Russian military in the Arab Republic aviation, the scope of the actions of the radicals has grown to unimaginable proportions.

Now it became obvious that the long-term American tactics to overthrow the current Syrian leadership through the full support of the so-called moderate opposition, often acting hand in hand with terrorist organizations, failed. In this case, the US had no choice but to try to penetrate into the paradigm of successful actions of these very Syrian authorities. However, they didn’t give up their original ideas overseas, but instead of outspoken thugs, it was decided to concentrate on interaction with the armed Kurdish troops. However, the old ties were apparently preserved, otherwise how to explain the active promotion of the Kurdish self-defense detachments in the direction of Abu-Kemal and their occupation of the strategic positions of the "Islamic State" practically without a fight.

In parallel with this, attitudes are coming from Washington, but it is not clear to whom it is addressed that Syrian President Bashar Assad has no place in the post-war government of the country, and his family’s rule has come to an end.

The above facts indicate that the United States categorically does not want to be on the side of the losers on the eve of the end of hostilities. But there was no place for them in the company of winners, and therefore the opportunity to seize the region rich in hydrocarbons seems to the White House the only chance to sit at the table of the upcoming talks regarding the post-war structure of Syria.

Reminds blackmail? Well, except that just a little ...

      It is surprising that the Russian Foreign Ministry is passive. I should declare on the “every corner” that the US is an aggressor and an occupier, and instead “partners” ..., “partners” ... And these “partners” are wiping their feet on Russia! Bandera was bred in Ukraine and they won’t wait until one nation begins a major civil war.

        For ordinary people, this is an aggressor and an occupier, and for the Kremlin and others like them, they are really partners. As soon as you introduce the concept of classiness, it immediately becomes clear what’s what, and who shares the looted funds with whom and how.

        Let the Foreign Ministry behave as it wants, but it’s time for Shoigu to end with tour trips, and get down to business: to clean Syria from all illegal trash, to restore order in Ukraine. Need action, not chatter. While there are sandstorms in Syria, it’s as if by mistake to strike at pro-American litter, and the Foreign Ministry can then apologize, although it’s better to just send it to hell. “Exceptional” understand only the language of power, they violate any treaties.

    Against the background of the victories of the Syrian army, the UN must be condemned to find the "coalition troops" located in Syria illegally. Let this condemnation be faced with an American veto, but hearing that the Syrian army, with the support of the Russian Air Force, will clear the territory of Syria in the camp of the “coalition”, flight and discord will begin.

      The United States wants to play the same card in Syria as in WWII. Here are the crafty ones! Again they strive to keep up with the distribution of medals. am

    Some do count on this success. assign...

    The most disgusting thing is that these "some" sometimes succeed. It is enough to recall the revision of the results of the 2nd MV, the destruction of chemical weapons in Syria (Obama proudly said that this was thanks to the United States), the Iranian nuclear deal ...

    I won’t be surprised that this can happen. Because the Americans are not afraid to use their troops. Including able to throw troops. Unfortunately, our landing force can only act beautifully on exercises and beat bottles on the head. Therefore, in order not to be disgraced, ours are afraid to use it to capture objects. Under the pretext that this is the task of the Syrians, and we protect our soldiers. But the Syrians are not capable of this at all. Therefore, the Americans, if desired, can easily take Abu Kemal. By the way, no sandstorm can hinder them.

      But you are however a dreamer and dreamer. Will Americans storm Abu Kemal? Well, well .... Remember, the exclusive right to die for the interests of mattresses belongs exclusively to the allies of the mattresses. But when the “allies” shoot down the last bearded homelesshead, then a helicopter appears with the rangers, who, having finished the bearded wounded animal and hoisted the American flag on the mosque, will take a selfie against it, which in five minutes will flaunt on the front pages of Western media that will not blink an eye will report the victory of the United States.

    Like it or not, the American coalition in Syria is just the occupiers. If you take some kind of "democratic forces", they are essentially illegal armed groups and fall under Syrian law, according to which they must either lay down their arms, sit down at the negotiating table and transfer territory under Syrian control, or be destroyed by Syrian government forces. Is the US against the territorial integrity of Syria? Then a legitimate question arises: why are they for the territorial integrity of the same Urkaina and demand the return of Crimea and the laying down of arms by the forces of LDNR? They can be slammed with such a fork according to their impudent physiognomy at all political venues)))

    Yeah, right now. Not for that our VKS hollow on Abu-Kemal these minutes, without taking out that the Yankees stamped their boots there. I won’t be surprised at the helicopter landing of our PMCs in Abu Kemal along with the Tigers)
