US position on Syria: We will not go anywhere!

30
The increase in the US presence in the Syrian Arab Republic is taking place against the background of regular informational stuffing of political elites of the West. Continuing the current trend, Brett McGurk, the US special envoy to combat ISIS in Syria and Iraq, presented his view on the development of the situation, giving Washington the role of a "solver" of Syrian problems.




On Thursday, the US special envoy said that Washington did not intend to participate in the process of restoring Syria without fulfilling the demands put forward by it. “We, as a coalition, have made it clear that there will be no international assistance to rehabilitate areas under the regime’s control (official Syrian authorities - Ed.) Without advancing the political process in a reliable manner for a political transition,” the diplomatic official said. Note, by "political transition" the American leadership implies the resignation of the current President Bashar al-Assad and the holding of new elections in the country.

Also, the American representative expressed disagreement with the position of Russia, Iran and a number of other states that declared the defeat of the Islamic State in the Syrian Arab Republic. At the end of his briefing, the ambassador stressed that the United States is promoting its own national interests in Syria, which preserve the American military contingent in the SAR.

It is noteworthy that a month earlier Brett McGurk reported on the military "successes" achieved by the coalition in Syria and Iraq, claiming that the pseudo-caliphate lost more than 95% of the controlled territory. The special representative stressed that the defeat of the "Islamic State" was made possible thanks to the efforts of Washington and its allies from the military-political bloc of NATO and the Arab League.

The statements made by Mr. McGurk in a short period essentially reflect two opposite pictures of the situation in Syria: a few weeks after the speech on the coalition's victory over ISIL, the State Department representative convinces the public that success has not yet been achieved and Washington will need time to consolidate the results.

However, the volatility of American policy in Syria is reflected not only in the statements of State Department official representatives, but also in the specific decisions of the White House and Pentagon administration, which feed the illusions of taking revenge for another failure in the Middle East.

Recall that at the end of last month, the official command resource of Operation Unshakable Resolve had information about the withdrawal of 400 by the American military of the 1 artillery battalion of the 10 regiment of the marine corps. We note information about the arrival of a battalion of servicemen at a permanent station did not appear, in turn, the Internet is replete with reports about the deployment by the United States of new bases and the strengthening of existing military facilities in northern Syria in El Shaddadi and in the area of ​​the settlement of Al-Tanf .

Returning to the speech of Mr. McGurk, the special representative also did not disregard this issue, stating the following: “We are in Et Tanf and will remain there to make sure that the IS cannot return there”. Recall that on the annexed 55-kilometer zone, American instructors monthly train hundreds of militants of the armed opposition.

Sources familiar with the situation report that it is planned to use further trained gangs to attack the positions of the Syrian Arab army along the Iraqi border. At the same time, according to military analysts, if the United States attempts to implement this scenario, the attack will be carried out from the northern direction, mainly from the territory of the Al-Shaddadi military base in Hasaka province.



According to refugees from the tent camp Rajm es Salibi (5 kilometers southeast of El-Shaddadi), 750 people are currently being trained at the American base, 400 of whom are terrorists of the defeated ISIL group, deployed to the base in Hassaka province from Raqqa and desert areas provinces of Deir ez-Zor and awaiting instructions from the "world solver."

        Well, if the "rust troughs" were used to supply the Syrian group from all over the country, then the "Cuban Express" is completely out of the realm of fantasy. Although, it is in Cuba, in Nicaragua and Venezuela that our bases are the very place. And full factions. In order for the United States to become the only true position around the world “waiting for the pendal”.

    As a coalition, we made it clear that there will be no international assistance.
    It is clear that the bomb did not build. But as stated, "there will be no international assistance." Once again verbally showed that the United States is the navel of the earth and it depends on them who and what will do in Syria. Rotten politicians, rotten country.

        Yes, it’s how much money you can raise there on one construction site only ... And the infrastructure, and the other, the other, the other benefits ... Again, will we leave for the “thank you” from the grateful Syrian people? Will the Chinese and the Americans remove the cream from the Americans and the Europeans?

      Iran, in the open, is unlikely, but to create something like Hezbollah there, some

        Trumpampam did not accidentally plant a pig in Israel with West Jerusalem. When the Pentagon (and the entire military-industrial complex is in private hands, and it is clear who else besides Biden and McCain) began to beg money from Congress for rearmament, Congressmen scratched their turnips and decided that it was time to conduct an audit of the Pentagon. And so Trumpampam puts a pig to Israel. Our izgailsky friends shas will be indignant, but it is so. Trumpamps gave the Arabs a reason to start again if they didn’t fight Israel, meaning to terrorize the civilian population. Then both sides will ask for weapons from the United States. My vision is this. Pogavit me, izgayilskie dzuzya, if I am still mistaken. hi

    It is necessary for the Yankees to send home a couple of hundred of their warriors with a load of 200 - then they will begin mass desertion, or evading business trips to Syria! The more Yankees bring their corpses home, the faster they will wash off from Syria. It is only necessary that in this country every stone shoot at the Yankees, each sip of water could be the last on this planet for them.

      It will be exactly like that. Yeah. Only in reality will it be casus belli, that is, a reason for starting an official war. And the invasion of a large number of troops. This is what they are waiting for. Or they equip high-speed transporters just like that?

    Well, and this will also get away with the USA? Why are ours curling up, why is there no scream at the UN? It is clear that no one will start TMV, but it doesn’t work out very well. Have you agreed on the division of the ATS? Moreover, like the Americans no longer demanded to remove Assad, now they demand again.

      Their long-term goal is the Middle East, then Central Asia, Russia. After the establishment of global control on Eurasia, the war with China, if before that China is failing the United States economically and does not present their debt obligations, having bought up
      these are the majority of strategic industries, including energy.

        Yes, the USA has this goal “for a long time and constantly”! Only. All the United States in the "foreseeable historical period" does not grow together ... The Soviet Union was in the way ... the USSR is not, but "there is no holy place" ... "appeared" China ... and Russia is near (nowhere didn’t disappear). And here the DPRK “small, impoverished, backward” threatens to impudent fists. The USA’s main and long-standing dream of “strangling” all who “hinder” them is not fulfilled in any way; and the number of “impudent” enemies does not decrease but increases.

    Is it really impossible to remove the American infection from Syrian land, for example, by biological means, to carefully drop a test tube on their base to remove the Anglo-Zionist-ISIS plague. They are preparing something similar for us.

      With test tubes, that's too much. From a non-existent chemical attack, and how much stink it was. It is necessary to properly organize the Syrian army, properly equip it, and then slowly crush area after area.

    Everyone understands that while the US is in Syria, the terror will continue! But in order to knock them out, no one does anything. On the contrary, Russia announced the withdrawal of troops, making it clear to the United States that it is not against the American bases. Kurds are also well established, they are not going to give territory. Such a truce is not beneficial for Syria, because there will be no peace.
