Kerry: Washington no longer insists on the immediate overthrow of Assad

51
The United States changed its approach to the question of the resignation of the Syrian president: now they do not insist on the immediate departure of Bashar al-Assad, but speak of a “smooth transition” of power. About this in an interview with CNN, said Secretary of State John Kerry.




“We changed it ... it won't work. We need a smooth transition, a controlled transition, so that there is no fear of retribution, lost lives and revenge, - quotes a diplomat RIA News. – If Assad leaves his post faster, it can lead to an explosion directed inward, which will deprive the country of any public life. ”

These words mean a change of position of Washington in relation to Assad and the situation in Syria, the channel said.

Kerry also said that "Russia's involvement in resolving the Syrian conflict could be an opportunity for the United States to resolve the crisis."

The agency recalls, on Monday, during his speech at the UN General Assembly, Vladimir Putin called for the creation of a "broad international antiterrorist coalition with the participation of regional powers." To coordinate the fight against the Islamists of the Russian Federation, Iran, Syria and Iraq created a single information center in Baghdad.

      This is no longer a mine in a bad game, it is already an actual agreement with the position of Russia.
      1. first deal with terrorists
      2. Assad "leaves" through general elections
      3. Assad, who has stood up against the West and the terrorists, will become the only candidate LEADER and voting will be in his favor, only he will be able to keep small political groups in one legal channel and only he will be able to conduct politics in the format of his region. Not every candidate will arrange the same Iran, but now no one will ask the opinion of the cartar; the cartar has lost.
      For me personally, this admission from Kerry is an encouraging fact. )))

    Just do not need more "opportunities for the United States"! Accustomed, u.rody, heat rake with other hands! In order for the conflict to go out, it is enough for the Americans to stop supplying weapons to the IGU, and for Turkey to “launder” Igov's oil! And WHO will resolve the conflict - and so it is clear! Nehru to stick on! angry

    Well, there maybe they just changed hawks. The Saudis, who are now in the position that they won’t say a harsh word without the Americans (for Yemen have already requested urgent military assistance from the United States — the bombs are over, and Oshkosh’s still needed) —– put the Resignation plug or the Power Offset Operation.

    Speaking to reporters in New York, Saudi Foreign Minister Adele al-Jubare stated that Assad has only two options: leave voluntarily or wait for the military operation to overthrow him.
    The Minister did not specify how Riyadh himself intends to participate in such an operation, and did not give any details about it, only noting that such an option to change power in Syria would be much longer and more costly.
    Al-Jubair emphasized that he does not see Assad’s political future and rejected Russia's calls to form a broad coalition together with the current Syrian authorities to combat the radical organization Islamic State.

    Although of course, if it’s serious, then everything is understandable. The Yankees have no choice. The Russian Federation will begin to press ISIS with or without them, and these overseas are now forced to compromise so as not to fall out of the cage of the fight against terror. Another thing is how they are going To fight him? If so, as they have done so far, then immediately fuck, and then having such "allies" - no enemies needed)))
    The Americans no longer get out of this game for good; they compromise with Russia on Syria, thereby moving into the category of secondary players, and thereby recognize the failure of their entire Middle East policy. Or they don’t make a compromise, and then it becomes clear to everyone, the obvious for a long time- "why do we need some kind of world gendarme that only troubles, but cannot really solve a single problem and does not or prevents these problems from being solved by those who can do it ? "
    And this is understandable by the Yankees themselves.

    The main thing in the post-war structure of Syria is to strengthen its position so that the United States does not drag its next proteges on our shoulders. Therefore, we must help the Syrian army to take control of more territory so that we can then talk from a position of strength. Then we can see who is really fighting ISIS.

    I hope that among those who are “resolving” the situation in Syria there are people who understand the essence of the problem and understand the real meaning of the statements of the sponsors of all the outrages arranged in Syria.
    Kerry's words are worthless. This is so any student already understands. But the situation is likely to be stalemate for the United States, and they successfully dragged the Russian Federation into resolving the conflict. What goals they pursue, ours still needs to be sorted out and we need to be on the alert. You also do not have to get involved in a ground operation, and bombing is also not particularly worth getting involved in. There is the experience of the so-called Coalition, which says that it is useless. But the theme of creating a common front against ISIS, with more or less adequate opponents of Assad, is a good step. It’s not even necessary that they fought against them side by side with Assad’s army, just let them sit in the regions they have captured and not let ISIS go there and do not interfere with the Assad’s army, for some kind of relief in the investigation of their crimes.
    But in general, the biggest problem is Turkey. We do not know whether Russia is conducting any kind of negotiations with them or not, but we must agree with the Turks. Negotiate honestly and then really the situation will change dramatically. It is trite, if Russia Turkey and Syria joined forces, then there would not have been a war initially, and now there is still the opportunity to drive ISIS at least into Iraq and let the United States fight them there. This is their territory.
    In general, I discuss this topic from the point of view of logic, I do not own operational information and may be mistaken in my estimates
