The US Department of State announced a policy of “keeping Russians away from the Middle East”

35

In the US State Department, they allowed themselves the next, to put it mildly, statements that are far from the diplomatic language regarding Russia. This statement was made by the assistant to the head of the State Department, David Schenker.


Schenker, without words, said that for almost half a century, American policy in the Middle East was to “keep Russians away” from this region.

Schenker:

Now they (Russians) play a role there (in the Middle East) of a destructive nature. And we honestly believe that they should get out of there.

In addition, Mr. Schenker states that “President Obama actively greeted the return of Russia to the Middle East at the time.”

Schenker:

The Obama administration then believed that the return of the Russians to the Middle East would drag them into the swamp.

All of these statements by an American official are similar to “lamentations” about “how hard it is for the current US administration in the Middle East.” The message "Obama is to blame" has already become the norm for the current American authorities. This is probably a convenient position for Trump. After all, he has repeatedly stated that "many US problems" are "due to decisions made earlier by Barack Obama." Schenker's statements on the situation in the Middle East lie on the same plane.

        I'm afraid this philippic will not reach Schenker. And if it does, he will not answer.

        So this is a long-proven and familiar trick No. 7, to shift the arrows from internal problems to external ones, and the harder "Uncle Tom" grabs his balls, the stronger he will squeal "about Moscow's hand".

      It’s not your business that the Russians forgot in Syria, we are doing our job there international debt, we help our Syrian comrades, headed by the Secretary General of the Baath Party, Comrade Bashar Assad.
      The American military unleashed the civil war in the Syrian Arab Republic with its puppets, to thwart plans to build a new island of stability and prosperity like Russia.
      Hands off the SAR, say the Russian military breast-defended the gains of sovereign democracy in Aleppo and the ancient city of Palmyra.

        I agree with what has been said. But still, we primarily help ourselves. As I said recently in one comment, for which they blamed me :) Well, okay, minus from some is like a balm for the soul.
        Russia intercepted the game in the Middle East with a brilliant and timely operation in Syria. Of course, the game was taken into account and our "partners", whose playful little hands showed themselves in addition to Libya, which they destroyed, also in Turkey, Egypt, Algeria, Sudan, Yemen, etc. Plus Afghanistan. Not to mention Iraq, which has eaten to the point of vomiting democracy.

        All these states would already be integrated into a global radical Islamist terrorist super-group, which would instantly gobble up the Caucasus and the former Central Asian republics, and then take over for us. And not the fact that they could have stopped already. And these squeals from the State Department only confirm my conclusions.

        and also "exceptional" openly rob a foreign country and openly declare "get out." Maybe their inner turmoil will cool their heads and they will become less unrest in the rest of the world ?!

    If the Americans left behind the rich, prosperous, safe and happy Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yugoslavia and many other countries, then we could listen to them. But alas, the Americans leave behind only ruins, terror, as well as millions of people deprived of work, money, housing and hope. Therefore, it is time for us to tell the whole world that they themselves shut up and fell. After all, their slogan is America above all, and let the rest of the world go to hell.

    Meanwhile, the PNS is 8 km from Tarhuna. The richest ghanima by that size was taken.


    Mi-35.


    Tanks that have broken and abandoned on the road are visible (with a total number of more than 10 pieces - 2 more Ramses, 8-9 ordinary, 1 T-72) and Grads (2 pieces).


    Thousands of boxes of ammunition, shells and equipment.

      It is not clear whether learning, or common sense, or an accidental arrival from the PNS. In general, the epic Ghanima did not make a fire. About 30 Toyota and armored cars burned out in the hangar.



      Well, Ramsesiki

    The USA got nervous .. So Russia needs to stay there !!! The same is true with Nord Stream .. As they say, if the US insists on something and threatens, then you need to do the opposite! And we're going in the right direction ..

    Not a day goes by that someone from the State Department, Defense Ministry, the US Senate does not croak about the containment or guilt of Russia. Mentioning Russia has become for them, like brushing their teeth in the morning - it is simply necessary. And the main thing is that they are going to restrain where they either screwed up or cannot. And lately this "there" is only growing. You try to restrain or restrain your blacks, and then remember about our country.
