Tillerson: being in power of Assad is one of the reasons for the US military presence in Syria

50
One of the reasons for the preservation of the American military presence in Syria is the fact that President Bashar al-Assad is in power, Interfax Statement by Secretary Rex Tillerson.




The complete withdrawal of the current US military personnel (from Syria) will revive Assad and give him the opportunity to continue the cruelty towards his own people,
said the Secretary of State, speaking at Stanford University (California).

According to him, the US military presence "will ensure the achievement of a final victory over ISIL (the group is banned in the Russian Federation), and will also help pave the way for legitimate local civilian authorities to manage in their liberated areas."

The departure of Assad through the Geneva process under the aegis of the UN will create the conditions for a sustainable peace within Syria and the provision of security for the states bordering on Syria,
declared Tillerson.

He also spoke about five goals that the US wants to achieve in Syria: “the complete defeat of ISIL, the resolution of the conflict within the framework of the Geneva process under the auspices of the UN, the reduction of Iran’s influence, the achievement of conditions for the voluntary return of refugees and the liberation of the country weapons mass destruction.

The Trump administration is implementing a new strategy (for Syria) to achieve these goals. It is largely in the expansion of diplomatic action due to ongoing military successes. Our diplomatic efforts will be characterized by stabilization initiatives and a new emphasis on a political settlement of the Syrian conflict,
said the state secretary.

      This abomination does not want to lose hope for the overthrow of Assad and the laying on Syria of gas and oil pipelines to Europe from Qatar. They explained to the Americans that no one had called them to Syria and no one needed their services. One abomination comes from the USA.

        To paraphrase Tillerson himself, we can say this: "The complete withdrawal of American military personnel from all countries at present will create conditions for sustainable peace throughout the world."

    The full withdrawal of American military personnel (from Syria) will revive Syria as a sovereign state, and will also help legitimate local civilian authorities to exercise control in their liberated areas. ”
    The US military presence ensures the existence of terrorist structures by training and supplying them, providing them with intelligence data.
    US hegemon of evil, war criminal country. The gangs of terrorists created by the United States pose a threat to peace and are subject to destruction, like the US military in Syria. We know the price of American hypocritical democracy.

    It is interesting how the same Tillerson would react to a message in the press like - the fact that Donald Trump is in power is one of the reasons for the military presence of the Syrian troops in the United States ....
    It’s clear that this is from the realm of fantasy, but nonetheless?
    It seems to the states that the very fact of an unreasonable invasion of the territory of a sovereign state is taken for granted.

    Expected. In general, we were given to understand that the Americans did not even think about leaving Syria. Peace will not be there for a long time. Amid all this, the announcement of the victory of GDP is premature.

    The most dangerous weapon of mass destruction in Syria is the presence of the United States, and therefore the Americans and pro-American forces must be destroyed.

    Assad is just an excuse, the reason is different. The colonization of Syria in access to Iran. Destabilization of the Middle East. Control and pressure on Turkey, which is beginning to show character.

    Assad will leave, there will be another reason, another will be eliminated, there will be a third ... Translated from diplomatic into Russian, Tillerson directly said that the United States in Syria would be serious and for a long time. And they will defend their interests until the last Syrian (Iranian, Kurd, etc.)

    The Middle East is only one option to return to relative stability to kick out the Yankees. Otherwise, to instill "democracy", they will flood the whole region with the help of their allies in the region, creating also analogues of igil, al-Qaeda. They will also devour allies, but for dessert.

    Assad’s withdrawal through the Geneva process under the auspices of the UN will create conditions for sustainable peace within Syria and security for states bordering Syria. Yes, I will never believe that the Americans started the war there and sponsor it, for the sake of the fact that they did not like Assad. No. It’s all about the oil that Syria has that they want to control yes

    Who would have thought?! What a "fantastic recognition"! And as in a bearded joke: But in fact it was. And so what? Americans on a drum suffer Syria and Assad. Americans always ride horses on the chessboard of world chess. And this horse is always directed against Europe and in particular against Germany. The refugee crisis is an American flash mob. But a blow to the EU is an indirect economic blow to Russia and China. All this eastern operetta will last until the US runs out of time.

    Assad did not bend under the United States, unlike some elites completely independent of common sense, they defend the independence of Syria. He does not suit the United States by not allowing them to host in Syria. If the US is allowed into Syria, then very soon the country will go under the hammer like, for example, Ukraine.
