NI Observer: Don't Believe American Neocon Tales About Iraq and Syria

45
During the protracted US war in Iraq, American neoconservatives created a dangerous lie about stories This conflict, writes columnist for The National Interest, Matt Perple. His article leads RIA News.




Perpl touched upon the topic of interfaith conflict that erupted after the overthrow of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein.

“The Hawks and the neoconservatives say that the situation in Iraq was allegedly proceeding with violence from Sunni and Shiite uprisings initially, until George Bush heroically intervened in the conflict and decided to send in the US troops. According to the neoconservatives, the United States’s participation in the conflict brought peace to the region until a "cowardly Obama" withdrew troops, which led to the creation of an "Islamic state" ”- notes browser.

According to him, “this presentation of events is more like a fairy tale, but this version is shared by many American intellectuals.”

This “mythical plot” is also used today for interpreting events from Syria.

Perple writes: "The support and armament of the Syrian insurgents from the United States, on which the hawks insisted, and led to the fact that the militants trained by American instructors gave weapon Al-Qaeda, and the Islamic State has American anti-tank missiles. ”

The author recalls that earlier expert Charles Lister, who specializes in the Middle East, wrote: “Ever since the middle of 2012, the overwhelming majority of Syrian militants have been coordinating with Al-Qaeda” for greater effectiveness of the fighting ”.

According to the observer, the participation of Americans in the clashes that occur in the Middle East region, only exacerbates conflicts. And “the fabulous interpretations of the neoconservative situation in Iraq and Syria give a false impression of American power and prevent learning the lessons of fifteen years of war in the Middle East,” concludes Perple.

      The picture is quite transparent:

      Bin Laden tried to break away from the curators, he was removed and put Alkaida again in the service of the owner.

      Now use to the fullest for their own purposes.

      Trained from the "moderate opposition" - a way to replenish the ranks of ISIS and supply them with weapons.

      Their insolence has no limits, the question is how long will Russia still have to open its eyes to the world

        Yes, in my opinion, only the blind-deaf-dumb or down does not yet understand who is the "empire of evil" in our world! All evil on our planet comes from the Anglo-Saxons, and it has always been so, throughout their history they lied, crap and spread their influence wherever their dirty little hands could reach!

            Yesterday I read a flowery little piece on "Echo of Moscow" by a notorious writer, whom either Gusinsky or Berezovsky wanted to fuck at one time, when the "young" was young ... We are talking about Yulia Latynina, there was written such a curly fairy tale with historical images in the sight of Roman emperors and Chinese generals about how backward we are and should not project our military power anywhere ... I advise you to read and read the comments ...

          What is the US right now?
          - to enter into a transatlantic partnership with Europe in order to completely subordinate it to trade and, together with the trans-Pacific partnership, to capture almost all markets in the world.

          Refugees disorient Europe, deprive them of the opportunity to think sensibly.
          In addition, they must have a "solution" to the refugee problem, which they will offer Europe, in order to persuade it to enter into a "partnership"

          If Russia succeeds in putting things in order in Syria to stop the flow of refugees, it will be too powerful a move to show who is who and can prevent the United States from seducing a European lady to unnatural proximity.

          The rate is prohibitively high, therefore, the development of events can be anything.

          The US’s double partnership - west and east will seriously limit our and China’s capabilities, it is hard to imagine what the consequences could be.

          A single military-political union may follow a trade partnership, Americans will not be Americans, so as not to go further, they can think big and do not stop there.

        Most likely it’s not so simple ... there is most likely a multipolar version ... the CIA thinks or pretends to control Alkaida, it most likely pretends to be subordinate to obtain cover and finances, while pursuing its own goals. The moderates generally create only vanity without a visible effect, but they are sitting on soldering from the CIA ... The CIA cannot understand what is going on in this mess, but rushes forward further since they themselves do not want to lose the allocation to their office ...

          I do not quite understand what kind of "two chairs" we are talking about, but I know for sure that:

          - Six months before the start of the US invasion of Iraq, Saddam refused to pay oil in dollars in favor of the euro.
          - Gaddafi - he even called to abandon both the dollar and the euro, and actively promoted the creation of a common African currency - the "golden dinar"
          - it is clear that both the one and the other thus significantly "offended" the dollar

          For which both were exponentially strangled request

      But it is interesting, however, in the light of the above, these are the statements -------- ,,, American Defense Secretary Ashton Carter said that the United States and its allies are ready to resist Russia's actions in Syria. In his opinion, the use of Russian aviation only worsens the situation in the country. The head of the Pentagon said this during a speech in Madrid. "----- and the adherents of the Strelka sect can explain this -------," I believe that now the war in Syria is a distraction from the desperate situation with the support of the Russians republics in southeastern Ukraine. I believe that volunteers are needed there. If I had the opportunity to form something and return to Donbass, I would do it without any money, "- said Strelkov." ----- I somehow have a question - who will it be? Well, in the sense of what kind of special services is he a real colonel ?? Somehow he sings the song in unison, although it seems that he is not Makarevich at first glance.

We have experienced this in our own skin and history more than once. Apparently we have such a task in this world. To pacify everyone ... to the last opportunity, and then, when our delicacy is mistaken for weakness and creeps into Us. GIVE HORNS ... Until next time. And as we can see, it is worthwhile to declare your position more rigidly ... having backed it up with a material base in the form of military force and excellent personnel, then immediately the words of the "chosen ones" turn into babbling ..
