Syria truce: Washington is trying to save its "allies"

47



The United Nations (UN) Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, called for an immediate declaration of a one-month truce in Syria. According to the UN press service, Guterres made such a statement after the active escalation of the conflict between the Israeli armed forces and the Syrian Arab army began on the Israeli-Syrian border.

It's time to be surprised. Why is it that the UN Secretary-General began to worry about the peaceful population of Syria? No, I understand that this is his job. But earlier he and his predecessor Ban Ki-moon had not noticed such care. On the contrary, earlier it was through the UN that everything was done to start a bloody civil war in Syria.



So what happened? And that's what happened. The Syrian army inflicted a decisive defeat on the militants in the province of Idlib and put them at risk of final defeat. At the same time, the Turkish armed forces are determined to crush the pro-American Kurdish enclave of Afrin, and have already laid eyes on the city of Manbidge.

A little more and the last hope of the Americans to gain a foothold in Syria and not allow Moscow to reshape the Middle East on its own will fail and Washington will have to evacuate its "guys" from the region.

Moreover, many people from many countries of the Middle East.

How can he prevent this, how to make sure that the efforts that the Americans have made over the past decades are not in vain?

Lost "terrorist" war

First, let's understand, and what actually led the United States to such a situation that it must be saved. The last time something like this happened in 2012, when the then-strong Syrian government army was not allowed to finish off the still weak military units of the nascent “oppositionists”, that is, those whom we call terrorists today. It was then that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon first became concerned about Syrian citizens and called for Bashar al-Assad to retreat.



And it became for that fatal mistake.

A year later, tens of thousands of militants were transferred to Syria and a real army was created from local gangsters who, by the end of 2015, were preparing to deliver the final and decisive blow to the government.

But on the very last day of September 2015, Russians entered Syria. Only a little over two years have passed and the pro-American Syrian gangsters once again found themselves in the danger of complete defeat and only a miracle or the UN Security Council can save them from it.

Allies must be saved

Yes, it is a miracle or the UN Security Council that can save those on whom Washington makes its main stake in the region. And this is not so much the gang of the “Annusrovtsy” in Idlib and not the other half-dead units of the Syrian “opposition”, but the army of the so-called Union of Democratic Forces, which today has at least 50 000 trained fighters, created in the last couple of years.

Syria truce: Washington is trying to save its "allies"


But even such an impressive force is not able to resist the combined forces of the renewed Syrian army and the Turkish armed forces.

As shown by the October events in Iraq and the current escalation of the conflict in Afrin, Ankara and Tehran are very serious about the destruction of the emerging Kurdistan, and the government forces of Syria and Iraq are ready to help them in this. Moreover, recent events show Moscow’s determination not to dwell on this issue, even if, at the same time, its military on the battlefield will have to face their most "close-knit partners" by the Americans.

In this situation, Washington is forced to look for unconventional steps in order to save those few remaining allies in the region that can still be saved. And he is looking for them.

Provocations

What can be opposed to the concentrated and successful attacks of the enemy, which besides the overwhelming numerical and technical military advantage also has legitimacy?



Yes, the main problem of the United States in the Middle East today is not the strength and technical power of the Assad army and the Turkish Armed Forces, but the fact that all American so-called allies in the region (the “opposition”, the SDF, Israel, Saudi Arabia) operate in Syria and Iraq contrary to international law.

Washington cannot further openly support them. The war with ISIS is over and the Americans have no formal reason to intervene in further events. So, then he will be forced, even if in small steps, to retreat from the region. This we have seen earlier in Kirkuk, and today we see the same thing in Afrin. Month after month, pro-American forces will retreat, losing battle after battle.

In this situation, the only option is to legitimize the presence of the American army, and you can only get it through the UN Security Council. And that in turn can act only if the situation escalates sharply. So, it must be created.



Actually, we got the current situation. Washington and its allies, with the help of a series of provocations, achieved, for me, insignificant, but according to UN Secretary General António Guterres, a very dangerous escalation of confrontation in the area of ​​the Syrian-Israeli border, which requires urgent UN intervention.

It is strange to hear and read all this, bearing in mind the repeated provocations by Israel and the missile attacks that the Israeli air force carried out throughout the Syrian war. There were also downed Israeli planes. It is very strange that in September 2015, all this seemed to the UN to be a trifle, but today it suddenly demanded urgent intervention and the announcement of a truce. But why it is strange, because two and a half years ago they were beaten not by “Americans”, but by their opponent Bashar Assad.

      I completely agree. Can anyone imagine how in March 1945 a cease-fire is concluded between the USSR and Germany? Our time has come to stop playing flirting and let the military normally, without looking back at diplomats, do their work. A la ger com a la ger and who didn’t hide I’m not to blame.
      When ISIS got stronger and expanded, no truces were announced, and how Russia and Assad began to crush both the truce and the "peaceful" Israeli bombing here ...

          Yes, where does the year and century? In any war, a truce is unthinkable before the imminent victory of one side. So it has been at all times. Another thing is if third countries entered the war who did not agree with such a development of events.

      I will answer all couch experts at the expense of revenge and otvetki - can you imagine how much it costs 1 day of military operations in Syria? And this is against the barmalei. Now imagine how much it will cost 1 day of war with the regular army of the United States or Ezrail! And how many victims will be.

    There are no American bases in Afrin, unlike Manibge! The Yankees immediately disowned the Athenian Kurds and only Kurds can retreat there, I’ll notice from their land. And how the Americans are "retreating", they recently showed by striking at the pro-Assad forces on the left bank of the Euphrates. They spit there on all formal occasions, which, in fact, they do not hide. Analytics below the baseboard

      See the gopher? What not? But he is.
      Maybe in the opinion of the Moscow Oblast there is no Wagner in Syria, but D. Mattis said, like: if you stick around, you get more. In the network of materials about the defeat of Wagner - more than.

      US Secretary of Defense General James Mattis commented on the defeat of Russian mercenaries from the private military company Wagner in Syria by the US military.

      A quote from the speech of the American minister was published on Facebook by journalist Yuri Butusov.

      "It was self-defense. It is obvious that we are not involved in the civil war in Syria ... The Russians at that time told us that their forces were not there ... The fact is that someone decided to attack us, and the Russians said that it’s not about them .... You can’t ask Russia to prevent a conflict when it doesn’t control something, ”Mattis said

          US forces alerted the Russian side during an attack near the village of Hashsham in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor, during which mercenaries of the Russian private military company Wagner were killed.

          This was stated by the head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, quotes his words TASS.

          "The Russians told us that from the very beginning their forces were not there. I think it is, but we don’t have full clarity about what the regime’s forces are doing there. But at least now it’s calm." - he said.

        In Syria, in the province of Deir ez-Zor, on February 7, the day when the American coalition against the Islamic State (Islamic State, an organization banned in Russia) dealt a massive blow to pro-Assad forces in the Euphrates River Valley, at least four Russians were killed who were fighters of PMC Wagner. The Conflict Intelligence Team (CIT) investigator group named them on Twitter with a link to messages from relatives and friends on social networks.
        According to CIT, Alexei Ladygin from Ryazan, Stanislav Matveev, Igor Kosoturov from the city of Asbest, Sverdlovsk Region, and Vladimir Loginov from the Kaliningrad Region died in Deir ez-Zor.
        According to a publication by the FARS news agency (quoted by the Turkish Daily Sabah newspaper), the USA mistakenly destroyed 300 Kurds in the southeastern region of Deir ez-Zor province in the vicinity of the village of al-Souseh. The reason for this feat was the false data received from local sources. To hide their mistake from the world media, the Americans began to spread fake news about the destruction of the Wagner PMC fighters.

    It is surprising why no one asks the USA against whom they are sticking out in Syria? ... I mean with whom, of course ... Against those who offend IS? . For me, the whole difference between the USA and the IS is that some bomb under CNN, others bomb under Allahakbar, and there are only one goals: intimidation and section. Just a global terrorist state, .. not agree- in the fire of war and chaos

    Finishing is simply necessary. You can’t leave the unfinished enemy, otherwise he will get stronger and will go on the attack again. Russia has the opportunity to drag out this whole thing at the UN, and Assad and Erdogan need to step up the onslaught and put an end to the Idlib group.
