Washington tried to provoke a military coup in Syria for several years

Sources of publications say that "the purpose of contacts with elements of the Syrian regime was the removal of President Bashar al-Assad from power."

“From the very beginning, the US was looking for weak spots in a regime that they could use to provoke a military coup, but there were not many of them,” the article says.

“According to official representatives, contacts with the (Syrian) regime were held from time to time, they were focused on specific issues,” the newspaper writes. “Sometimes key officials spoke to each other directly or through other persons, they sent messages through intermediaries such as Russia or Iran, the main allies of Assad.”

According to the newspaper, “in the 2011 year, when the (Syrian) regime began to take harsh measures against the protesters, and the soldiers began to desert, US intelligence officers revealed capable of changing the power of the Alawite officers - the religious minority to which Assad belongs.”

According to a source in the Obama administration, “in 2011, the White House’s policy was to ensure the transfer of power in Syria, detecting cracks in the regime and offering incentives to those who agree to leave Assad.”

At the same time, the author states that "these attempts were not crowned with success, and the integrity of the regime was preserved."

“By the summer of 2012, the strategy of the White House, the purpose of which was to create conditions for regime change, failed. The United States switched to supporting the rebels, but efforts were increasing too slowly. "

“Actions in this direction were unsuccessful, as Russia and Iran began to play on a large scale,” said the source.

“The growing influence of the IG in 2013 took the US administration by surprise,” the author writes. “Assad was able to take advantage of this to strengthen his position as a partner in the fight against terrorism that swept the region and exerted influence on the West.”

In this regard, the source told the newspaper that “the permanent representative of the UAR to the world organization Bashar Jaafari is consulting with his deputy American colleague Samantha Power”, and this spring “former White House employee Steve Simon visited Damascus at the invitation of Ahmad and met with Assad.

      Nothing was revealed to them, the black-headed baboon, as he continued to yell that Assad should leave, continues to do this and takes different actions, pushes the Turks to bomb the Assad and Iraqi government forces, then turns on the fool, I accidentally didn’t want to, and the journalists who pays and orders music.

        Here's the whole background of today's US hysterics. For such a long time, "some kind of Syria" resists expression of will US administration. Money swelled so much and a complete failure of plans. That comes to the homogeneous Obama.
        It already looks like the personal revenge of insane Obama Assad.

      No, they simply stated the fact of failure in an attempt to destroy Syrian statehood.
      “These attempts were unsuccessful, and the integrity of the regime was maintained”
      Assad's regime turned out to be much stronger than Saddam's. In Iraq, "donkeys laden with gold" and threats persuaded most of the generals to betray.

    "Washington has been trying to provoke a military coup in Syria for several years."
    The coup, the purpose of which is the division of Syria into Sunni, Shiite, Kurdish, and essentially radical
    Islamic hornet’s nests and the sunger in this slyly appears, as if neutral, a friend of ISIS Israel,
    occasionally delivering air strikes against Syrian government forces.

    The father of Alexander Filippovich the Great said that "a donkey laden with gold will open the gates of any fortress." Not enough donkeys, judging by the presence of "moderate" opposition, was not observed, which means the mattress toppers stint on gold.

    You are ransacked under the law,
    Before you, the court and the truth - keep quiet! ..
    But there is also God's judgment, confidants of debauchery!
    There is a formidable court: it is waiting;
    He is not available ringing gold
    And he knows thoughts and deeds in advance.

    It seems that the guys from WSJ watched one of the last episodes of the series Homeland (Homeland), where the Americans almost recruited a senior Syrian commander, but the plan was foiled by Russian intelligence - the plane was destroyed.

    If the mattresses are unable to arrange a coup, they are fomenting a war ...

      It is not for nothing that they and their minions miss and miss on ISIS, but all misses go to Syria.

    and what's so surprising !? everything is clear and predictable!
    This is what I found on the websites of Ukraine:
    “In Ukraine, the elite stayed. The same people, the same godfathers of the last 25 years. They’re not only tired of society, I’m sure they’re tired of each other too ... Ukraine is not your cash cow, we will tear Ukraine out of your hands, ”Saakashvili said.

    Common American tactics. Money did not help, then it is simply necessary to stir up the war. The world "hegemon" has completely lost a sense of proportion. He overthrows whoever he wants, starts a war wherever he wants, but he doesn't always get what he wants.
