American rebranding "IG"

13
There is no doubt that the US threats to strike at Syria are aimed at resolving both the intra-American problems of the Trump administration and the issues of global confrontation with Russia. But they have only indirect relation to American goals and objectives in the Middle East.




In fact, rocket attacks are not able to change the alignment in ATS and are certain demonstrations, symbolic gestures aimed at solving purely propaganda tasks.

However, by themselves, these actions do not exclude the presence of quite specific strategic plans for the United States. Or, to be more precise, reshaping the borders and configurations of the Middle East.

Earlier, John Bolton, who has now become Assistant to the President of the United States for National Security, most certainly reported on these plans.

In his speech, he stated that “Iraq and Syria, as we knew them, no longer exist,” because “by mobilizing the Sunni opposition to the regime of President Bashar al-Assad and the Iranian-controlled government of Iraq, the Islamic State” (“IG”, prohibited by in the Russian Federation) created a new geopolitical entity that changed the borders established after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire borders.

Further, Bolton, having actually admitted that it was the igilovtsy who are the “opposition to Damascus”, the elimination of which is equivalent to the victory of “Assad and the Iranian puppets in Iraq”, stated that such an outcome is extremely undesirable for the United States.

“Instead of fighting to restore the borders that existed after the First World War, Washington should recognize the new geopolitical situation. The best alternative to the “Islamic state” in northeastern Syria and western Iraq is a new, independent Sunni state, ”writes Bolton.

It should be noted that the concept outlined is in no way a personal opinion of Trump's new assistant, this is a long-term Washington plan for the region, and only John Bolton added that he was a little careless about the role of the IG in the American strategy. However, today, other US leaders are not too keen on their language.

The new security assistant, who assumed his duties, said that he would follow the agenda of Donald Trump, but the fact is that the current owner of the White House has not yet been able to demonstrate that he has a clear and consistent agenda. Instead, we observe a situational response to the growing avalanche-like problems.

However, the US agenda for the Middle East seems to have been formulated long before Trump, and, in particular, is set out in the mentioned article by Bolton.

It should be noted that the “alternative” IG is an important aspect and almost the basis for the implementation of the American plan for the “Greater Middle East”.

So far, Washington has officially staked on Kurdish gangs. However, this alone is not enough for the realization of the intended goals. Moreover, the support of the Kurds not only destroyed the relations between Washington and Ankara. Kurdish separatism, which received American support, contributed a lot to the establishment of mutual understanding and interaction between Turkey and Iran.

Themselves Kurds are torn apart by numerous contradictions - tribal, political, confessional. Finally, the secularism of most Kurds and their radical nationalism pushes the Arabs away from them.

The militants of the YRG are accused of discriminating Arabs and Turkomans and even ethnic cleansing in the settlements under their control.

That is, Kurdish separatist groups and formations are good in order to consolidate against themselves (as well as against those who support them) all the states and forces of the region.

The “alternative” IG, which Bolton talked about, after a slight rebranding of the remnants of the original “Islamic state”, replenished and enhanced by jihadist fighters from other terrorist gangs, if the US can fully control it, it can really become a curse of the Middle East, “second breath” bloody chaos and unceasing slaughter.

And this work is already being done by the Americans for quite a long time. One of the base areas where Americans take terrorists from broken gangs is located in Al-Hasaka, in northeastern Syria. This was reported by official sources of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. However, the same information was even posted in Newsweek.

Even earlier, it became known that a similar work was carried out by American "specialists" from the Special Operations Forces based in Al-Tanf. The fact of the evacuation of the leaders of terrorists from Deir ez-Zor by American helicopters was widely known.

More and more of these “former” Caliphaters are operating today in the ranks of the SDF. And there is every reason to believe that this is not just cheap infantry, cannon fodder, used by Americans to solve situational issues.

As Bolton blurted out, Washington’s intentions with regard to the militants of the IG * are much more serious, and the plans are long-term.

Considering the localization of most of the terrorist camps created by the Americans, there is no reason to doubt Washington’s intention to build an “independent Sunni state,” whose main lobbyist is John Bolton, in all likelihood. Which, by the way, used to say: “The big mistake is to attach any importance to international law, even if it may seem to be in line with our short-term interests. In the long run, those who want to hold back the United States put international law on international law. ”

      We need a counterbalance to this IG ... I must tell the Americans there is someone to rely on in the regions where the IG dominates, since they themselves lead this IG through their agent-leaders ... smile In addition, the IS militants consumables and it is not a pity to throw tens of thousands to death ... they will still recruit recruits.
      But it seems to me that the Kremlin should learn how to fight the USA with the wrong hands ... there is no need to waste its resources, people and time when completely different people motivated to fight US hegemony can do it ... you just need to help them a little by teaching them all the necessary skills and equipping them with at first effective fighting tools.

        Unfortunately, the majority of people in the world are motivated by US dollars. And while this motivation is strong, the United States can buy its interests around the world. That's when there will be its own more attractive alternative to motivation, then it will be possible to train and equip someone with the instruments of war. The motivation is precisely the "nishtyaks and grandmothers" quoted in the world, and ideology will be taken as an appendage. At one time, the USSR could allow such motivation + “communism and justice all over the world”, now only the USA remains, with its own dollar and “democracy in every home”.

          Yes, it's true. Now, people everywhere understand that there is no alternative to capitalism — the thirst for profit and possessive interests in man are not destroyed. All other formations, except the capitalist one, can exist either in primitive communities, or be planted and maintained artificially. Only a capitalist system based on commodity-money relations for profit is self-organizing. Based on this understanding, Western ideology also cynically calls on people to make a choice — either “organized, fair” capitalism of Western “democracies” or “totalitarian, oligarchic” capitalism as in Russia, China, India, etc.

          For example, the Syrians are now motivated by the question of their physical survival, this is much more motivation than US dollars

    The quote is “... John Bolton. Who, by the way, used to say:“ It’s a big mistake to attach any importance to international law, even if it may seem to meet our short-term interests. In the long run, those who want to restrain international law United States"..."

    Words that very accurately describe the Anglo-Saxon essence. They need, in addition to other "wonderful" phrases of the Anglo-Saxons, to always hang out at disputes and political shows, where the foreign policy of the United States, England, Australia and Canada is discussed.

      I just wanted to write the same thing. They put states on international law if they have their own interest.
      I support with all four hands! ... or feet ...

    Bolton, he’s a talker, he’s also a Russophobe, who knows who the hell he is! And all this he is a tramp-like postman! A chattering head that doesn't even see a gopher! Completely crushed the establishment.

    ISIS is needed so that American soldiers in the Middle East do not die, it’s better to mess in different countries with their own hands than their own. And of course Israel (like any other state) is at hand with a weak, backward technological advancement, therefore Iraq, Syria destroyed ,etc. it’s not just the USA that’s worth it, but Israel. The only thing left is to destroy Iran and Israel may not even take a steam bath, except for Palestinian children there will be no enemies. In the place of the Jews, I would pray for ISIS. God only sees everything and punishes the guilty wink

    And how did Russia somehow respond to overt evidence of terrorist support? Even the pro-Western BBC showed that Americans and NATO help terrorists and there is an interception of telephone calls between American instructors and terrorists; and Americans themselves, sooner or later, open archives or admit that they sponsor the bearded, and even create, as it was in Afghanistan .... There are docks, there are papers, witnesses .... And Russia is silent !!!!!! !!!!! Squeaks a little and again goes to international law .... Pray for this right, while the Americans wipe their anus ..... Well, at that pace, they will soon begin to iron us .... In principle, they have already begun in Syria. It’s not a fact that ours didn’t die there after the Amer’s bombs .... How many of our military have already attacked drones and how many terrorists have Americans killed with their own hands, and we are all silent ..... We finished MGIMO, as Lavrov said .... We are well-mannered and still call partners freaks, who frankly consider us enemies, and everywhere they say that. Oh Russia, when will you wake up ?!

      Elena, the fact that they don’t report directly to you about all the actions of politicians, diplomats and the military does not mean at all that "Russia is silent."
      It seems so simple request
