Military Review

Legal occupation of the United States in Syria

14



It seems that the United States is becoming less and less sober-minded civil servants. Judging by the inadequate statements that have been heard lately from overseas, the number of political clowns in the country has been steadily growing, and the United States itself is becoming more and more like a circus arena.

The other day, the head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, appeared as a ridicule, disgracing himself to the whole world during his speech at a press conference. To verify this, just go to the US Department of Defense website, where the transcript of the event is published.

In general, Mattis asked questions related to US foreign policy, including that pursued by Washington in the Middle East. The conversation also came about Syria, where, as you know, US military personnel are illegally stationed. Here came the finest hour of the head of the Pentagon and sensational statements.

Despite the generally accepted fact, Mattis tried to dispel doubts around the military presence of the United States, saying that the US army was acting in Syria legitimately, with the "permission" of the UN. They say that the UN adopted resolutions on the struggle against the Islamic state. For this purpose, the Americans are creating military bases in Syria.

It is possible that Mr. Mattis, speaking of the resolution, implied Article 51 of the UN Charter, which presupposes the use of military force by the state as self-defense in the event of an armed attack. After the September 11 attacks on the territory of New York in 2001, the UN Security Council expanded the interpretation of this article by adopting the 1368 resolution. This was supposed to contribute to the fight against international terrorism. But in fact, it was not without the facts of abuse of international law, which we see today in Syria.

The confrontation with radical militants gradually outgrew with the struggle against the current regime and the hated Assad, and support for the moderate opposition increased. While Russian aviation refrained from attacks on militants classified by Washington as non-terrorists, the United States began to destroy supporters of official Damascus. Imitating the fight against terrorists, they negotiated with the Ishilovites, as was the case in Raqqa.

In the past 6 months alone, the international coalition has attacked government forces three times: April 7 Americans used 59 Tomahawk missiles to attack Shyrat airbase in Homs province, May 18 and 6 in June, Western allies attacked pro-government forces in the US military base Et -Tanf.

Damascus’s position on this issue remains unchanged. Americans are considered invaders, violating the "foundations of the UN."

In turn, the former UN Deputy Secretary General Sergei Ordzhonikidze ridiculed the statements of the current head of the Pentagon, who, in his opinion, simply tried to “wriggle out” in an “inept and <...> even absurd way."

But does anyone really care? Or are delusional claims only the case of former UN employees?
How not to recall the words of the commander of the special operations forces General Raymond Thomas during a speech at a security forum in Colorado:

“The day is not far when the Russians will say:“ Why are you still in Syria, USA? ”They were already close to this. We went there (to Syria) justifiably, but if the Russians play this card, then when we want to stay, we cannot do it. They (Russia) can do it. ”

This day came on November 9, when Abu Kemal's igil ceased to exist.

    Americans in Syria behave the same way as the brothers of the 90s came to the market in a foreign city ...
    approach the market director and say:

    you had a roof (ISIS) ... now we (the USA) will be the roof ... and we have permission from the beholder (UN) ... and your opinion on this does not interest anyone.

        It smells closer to World War III because of Washington's indefatigable appetite!

    Only the corpses of their warriors, the mass of blind manners, will force the United States to flee from Syria. A precedent has already been -Livan! ! You need to repeat again! !!

    The time has already come when the actions of the world "gangster" cannot be covered with finki letters. Consequently, questions arise that need to be answered, how to give answers and their actions. Here are the American powers that be (or their "ersatz") begin to engage in verbiage. What turns with a mockery of common sense yes Those. ordinary circus. The circus is for us, but for the American layman - the action of heavenly forces in the name of protecting peace and freedom in the whole galaxy laughing

    "It seems that in the United States is becoming less sober-minded civil servants" ....
    This is why the author made such a conclusion? The United States is waging this war by other people's lives and money, weakening all potential "partners." They have everything - OK. Well, believing in international law and honesty in politics is the lot of “drunken” dreamers.

    The White House, the Senate, the Pentagon and adequacy are not compatible concepts. The Americans got what (in the person of politicians and military) they deserve. The main thing is that this inadequacy does not start 3 MB.

    States behave like a pig at the table, not only in relation to Syria, but also in relation to the whole world outside the borders of the United States. Even in relation to their allies and vassals, un camouflaged arrogant shouts and orders constantly sound.

    I always said: the USA is a circus, and US officials are clowns. But only Amer’s clowns are a crime.

      It's just that they are "exceptional" and therefore always do everything right, and if you do not support them, then you are the enemy of "democracy" - these are the politicians in the State Department, the Congress, and the Senate - a bunch of hypocrites who are ready for anything for prosperity America, all the rest they do not care.
