US military and political means in Syria. The path to the displacement of legitimate authority

Joint US-Turkish patrol in Syria, September 2019


From the very beginning of the Syrian civil war, official Washington has taken a tough stance against the legitimate authorities led by Bashar al-Assad and has held such views to this day. One or another measure is taken to achieve the goals. In recent weeks, new military and political steps have been taken.

Military presence


Over the past few years, in the territories beyond the control of the Syrian authorities, there has been a limited contingent of US forces. Military advisers, special operations forces and other specialists work on the spot. According to various sources, up to several thousand Americans worked in the periods of greatest activity in Syria.

In early November, it became known about the plans of Washington and the Pentagon to expand the controlled areas of Syria, as well as to change the size of the contingent. It is about control over the northern and eastern regions of the country, actually held by the Kurdish militia. The need for the presence of troops is officially explained by the desire to protect local oil fields from terrorists.

According to the first reports of November, at least 800 US troops should be left in Syria. Most of them should work at bases near deposits in the river valley. Euphrates and exercise their protection. It also provides for the deployment of units in other regions of Syria controlled by loyal units.

US actions in field areas have already received praise from Damascus and Moscow. Accusations of international state gangsterism have already been voiced. In addition, evidence has emerged of the export of Syrian oil - in fact contraband.

Interaction problems


The other day in the American press appeared curious information about the fears and plans of the Pentagon. In recent weeks, in Syria, there has been an increase in the actions of the Syrian troops, as well as the Iranian, Russian and Turkish contingents. The situation is changing rapidly, and the American command has to take into account new challenges.

The command of the American contingent in Syria has already requested guidance from the Pentagon in the event of a worsening situation. The warlords want to know how they should act in the event of a clash with foreign troops or the groups they support. According to The New York Times, intelligible orders of this kind have not yet been received.

Some measures are being taken to avoid dangerous incidents. US troops are trying to monitor the situation and not react sharply to events. In addition, communication with third countries is of great importance. So far, all this helps, and the United States is doing without major problems and clashes with the enemy.

The long-started cooperation with local groups continues. The main allies of the United States remain the "Syrian Democratic Forces", which includes many different groups and formations. Together with them, US troops "guard" Syrian oil and fight terrorist organizations.

Political means


In the very near future, the US Congress should approve the new National Defense Authorization Act, after which President Donald Trump will sign it. The defense and security package includes the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act (Caesar’s Syrian Civil Protection Act). It is expected that Caesar will become a new way to fight for its interests in the Middle East region.


The Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act provides for the imposition of sanctions on a number of sectors of the Syrian economy controlled by Damascus and the B. Assad administration. Also, measures will be taken in relation to public and private organizations interacting with the Syrian army or participating in projects of the Syrian authorities.

The official reason for the appearance of "Caesar" is called "the numerous atrocities of the Bashar al-Assad regime." Congress - in the person of both parties - has become preoccupied with the problems of the Syrian civilian population and is now advocating a new bill. It is proposed to take measures not only in relation to Damascus, but also to threaten punishment to third countries.

Caesar versus all


It is curious that the American press has already “exposed” the new Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act and has probably found its main goals. Apparently, this act is not only directed against B. Assad and the Syrian authorities, but should also provide pressure on third countries.

"Caesar" proposes to impose sanctions both against the "Assad regime" and in relation to any organizations cooperating with it. This means that Iran and Russia may fall under the law. These countries do not share American views, and their actions directly interfere with the advancement of US interests. Accordingly, Washington wants to get an additional lever of pressure on third countries.

After the adoption of the Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act, the American leadership will actually be able to blackmail foreign states and organizations. They will be faced with a choice: to continue the desired cooperation with Damascus or to endure sanctions.


However, the American media also mention a milder scenario. In this case, Caesar should not be a measure of direct impact and a kind of punishment, but an argument in the negotiations. All parties to the current conflict are interested in a bloodless diplomatic solution to the problems, but at the same time they want to secure certain advantages in the current and future negotiations.

The confrontation continues ...


Over the past few years, Syria has remained a place of clash of interests of a number of countries - and not only the Middle East region. All of them have their own interests, on the basis of which they support official authorities led by B. Assad or armed groups.

The ultimate goal of the United States is to displace current Syrian power and establish a new controlled and loyal regime. Similar goals are pursued by some other states collaborating with the United States. While the main tasks of this kind have not been solved, smaller, but also important missions are being carried out. In particular, the USA “took protection” of a part of oil fields and, to put it mildly, do not allow oil to be wasted.

To control the deposits and other regions of Syria, the US armed forces deploy separate units, as well as provide support to local armed forces. In recent months, the situation in Syria has changed significantly, but a similar approach continues to be used.

Actual actions carried out by the Pentagon are supported by political and diplomatic methods. Another measure of this kind should be the new Caesar Syria Civilian Protection Act. It is planned to be adopted and put into effect in the very near future. Right after that, Washington will be able to use this tool in new disputes.

Obviously, the US does not plan to leave Syria and lose all the desired benefits. Likewise, other countries participating in multilateral conflict want their benefits. To solve their problems, all these countries use military, diplomatic, economic and other means. In recent weeks, the United States has taken a number of notable steps, and soon it will be possible to observe their real results.

    The Americans still do not understand that they have already lost in Syria. And they can’t calm down, trying to maintain their military presence here.

      I advise everyone to ask what the Arabs themselves say. We are not particularly popular there, but even you, as it were, to put it mildly not quite friends (Sunnis) there. You held parades, announced the coming of Sukhil, and so what has changed? Nothing at all, the United States controls oil, and you have no visible victories. You cannot defeat the Sunnis, but they are against you. All this falsity about the fact that you are there at the invitation of the Syrian legal government is only strange standards, in Libya you are against the legal and that’s okay, but here others are against and that’s bad.

      And why, in addition to condemnation, transit cannot be blocked? Either capturing or destroying caravans.
      Then the Americans will see the meaninglessness of their actions.
      In the meantime, they see meaningless statements

        Because it’s already going mostly to the political plane than to the military! Since, most likely, these caravans are covered by aviation, etc. USA! There’s only partisan!

      Since the beginning of the conflict, the US has controlled (through its "intermediaries") a significant part of Syria. Much less now. I think that they will be squeezed out all the same. But they won't stop shitting.

      Well, they expressed concern, what else is needed? Send Airborne Division? So you have a little more GDP than Spain, and the population is 2 times more. You have no money to fight. Help pensioners at home in Russia, build roads, improve hospitals, give people a human life, and then you don’t want to fight.

And I answer your comment there above! I think it’s not good to somehow mess up the country, buy up the elite, and then under the guise of helping to destroy the government and the country at the same time and rob it under this guise!

              In the class journal in the column, a Jew was recorded, and in the metrics the nationality of the parents was also Jewish. The dishes and language of all European Jews are the same, and the traditions are the same as those of the East. I was born in the USSR and left as a teenager (I was a pioneer then, the Komsomol did not accept people like me) and that was long before perestroika. I know not by hearsay what it means to be "railway". For me this is nationality, another may say differently. I studied with Eastern Jews, served in the army, go to training camps and work together. I don't see the difference between us.

                There is a difference between Eastern Jews and European Jews - some have a craving for public services and basic business, while others have a craving for education and knowledge-intensive business. The eastern is closer to the Mediterranean culture, the European is closer to the western. Etc.

                "... the Komsomol did not accept people like me." No need to rave. Well, or was a "flyer". The best school friend is a Jew, in '78 (sort of) they joined the ranks of the vanguard of the youth together. He then graduated from the Polytechnic University, and works regularly at the NPP nearby. At the same time, he is married to a German woman from Germany. I never went to Israel. His father, a famous teacher in the city, in the 90s rushed there, but soon returned. For - Soviet, did not take root. No need to "drive" to the Union.

                  Such as I did not accept because the submission of documents for departure from the USSR did not allow me to go somewhere (and I myself was not ready, but wanted to leave the Union as soon as possible). There are many Jews who are assimilated and this is normal, they are Jews on paper and no more, very individually. I lived in a republic whose citizens were accepted by force in the army to the Komsomol, or they themselves entered to enter the institute with a military department, without this they did not accept.
                  Why not drive to the Union? Jews were limited when they entered certain universities, and they did not hide it. Please enter the Polytechnic University in Muhos ... and the PhysMech limit. I have no complaints about this, this is completely normal, because I am an unreliable element.

                        The Jews were not pressed, "so with a fool in the first years", so why were you not pressed with the same badun? Yes, and after the Chernobyl accident, the chief engineer was appointed to the station "not quite a Slav", and there were a lot of doctors, engineers in many areas were Jews, who argues. Only the percentage for the reception of Jews was, as you might not sound. Not for mental abilities, but for the 5th column. Anti-Semitism in the admission of Jews to universities was not only at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, but also at the Bauman Moscow State Technical University. Only it doesn't bother me, on the contrary it's nice. And the statistics, as you would not like, may not be accurate, but they quite show the direction. Take the number of Jews from the physics and mathematics schools in Moscow or who graduated with a medal and entered the Bauman or Mekhmat Moscow State Technical University, AND ALSO THE DATA ABOUT THE ADMISSION OF THEIR CLASSMATS. All the liars, the vice-rectors of these institutions, and I am numbered by you.

                        I had no idea which city you were from and I did not mean to offend you. Muhos .... meant outback. In my city (by the way, it is a small provincial town), there were no problems entering Polytechnic University either. for the Jews. Alas, the first time I hear about your institute, but it doesn’t say anything. Where does he stand according to the Shanghai ranking?

                        You did not insult me, no, but you surprised me - the Ural Polytechnic named after S.M. Kirov (Sverdlovsk) was obliged to know every decent student in the Union. But what is the Shanghai rating, for some reason I am not interested. Perhaps we are talking about different times. Well, Allah is already with him, it has passed. drinks

    There is also "Caesar"? ... Soon the sanctions will turn into an independent branch of the military. The Americans are clearly addicted to these weapons.
    It remains for them to prevent the creation of an "alliance of victims of sanctions." And here diplomats will already work with their nonsense about "democracy" in order to prevent the rapprochement of the Russian Federation, Iran, North Korea, etc.

    Americans will not voluntarily give up their role - the world gendarme. Too much effort has been spent to create a global web with them at the head. Moreover, it is fueled by local successes: coups, for example, in Bolivia; trade sanctions - with China, Iran, constant attempts to slow down SP-2 - against Russia and partners, political and material support of forces (Ukraine, Poland, Syria) against Russia. As follows from history, such a policy of the United States continues until they themselves directly receive a military rebuff. The war in Korea and the war in Vietnam are evidence of this.

Military advisers, special operations forces and other specialists work on the spot. According to various sources, up to several thousand Americans worked in the periods of greatest activity in Syria.

    That is, the Americans declared themselves legal sponsors of terrorists and an enemy of Syrian statehood, and they are looked at as a miracle that has fallen ...

                  No, I’m not hinting. The authorities will deal with these issues themselves.

                  Without us, never. They are happy with everything in this regard.

                    Everyone must do their job.

                    And then here as in the story about the jester of the Duke of Medici - Ganella. Which proved to be the most doctors in Florence

                      Well yes laughing First, these "dukes" destroyed the country, then they appropriated the people's property - "we don't need such hockey!" (C)

    for the restoration of Syria, we need either 300 or 400 billion dollars, while we are there, the Americans will simply wait, not give money and stop others from doing it, and mines. defense doesn’t help here, the one who pays and after some ten to fifteen years will simply ask us from there, what are all the paper agreements we have seen more than once and what is unclear

      Fifteen years is a cosmic time in our time. "Either the sultan dies, or the donkey dies."

        your truth, but you need to do something now, the country is destroyed and has no potential, there’s literally nothing to rake in piles of ruins, on the site of cities, on mines and nowhere to sell agricultural products (you know who the traditional Arab markets are), and where is the famine and devastation, there are always bearded boys and crowds of dissatisfied, money is needed. Russia, by some miracle and not to the detriment of itself, needs to be sent there, well, for example, loot from the Saudis (?)

          Separately, the ATS cannot be restored. The whole region is in such a deplorable state. With the departure of the USSR, Masons blew up the Arab world and catch their goldfish in this bloody water. Rather, this problem has no solution.
          Will the videoconferencing leave Syria? We will see, you can rest. A task for the future president or Secretary General.

      Syria will be danced by someone who pays and after some ten to fifteen years they will easily ask us from there

      Here some not so long ago already asked, in the end they asked them and the bases returned to their native harbor.

      They’ll earn it themselves. There, the people are entrepreneurial. They earned more money on wheat alone than on oil. Syria had a rich industry - the Turks exported entire enterprises from Syria!

      A matter of time, will be restored. If only the world was. And we will help them in this. I think that it is logical that Russian companies should have serious quotas in contracts.

    Why with them? We need to work on ourselves: recognize the denunciation of the Bialowieza conspiracy

    And we do not have enough to push the sailor Zheleznyak! You can also "call" a friend in a cap together with armored cars!
    Otherwise, no way.

    Here we have a problem with a friend in a cap, yeah. But "a holy place is never empty," no matter how the authorities oppose it. For already got enough.
