The decision to resume the Geneva talks on Syria means Putin’s victory, the American press cries. And this is to blame for Obama, who merged everything.
"Russian intervention in Syria has drastically reduced the capabilities of the United States," writes the New York Times.
“Putin’s Syrian Victory” is the title of the Wall Street Journal article.
“Russia was not bogged down at all, as Mr. Obama predicted six months ago, after the start of the Russian air campaign. Mr. Putin strengthened his strategic position in the eastern Mediterranean thanks to tough but limited military intervention with minimal losses,” writes the publication .
He forced the Arabs to respect themselves, and that is why the Saudis and the Emirates retreated before him, the newspaper continues. Here we are talking about the ground operation in Syria advertised by the Turks and Saudis, the rejection of which today can be considered a key point in the Syrian conflict.
Turkish Defense Minister Ismet Yilmaz denied the statement by the Syrian Foreign Ministry, which accused Turkey of launching a military invasion of Syria: "There are no thoughts to send troops to the SAR."
Recall, the Syrians accused Turkey of sending 12 vehicles with machine guns into Syria.
The fact that the Turkish special forces periodically works in Syria is no secret. But the fact that Turkey is ready to abandon the planned full-scale military operation seems to be true. Suffice it to recall that, for example, Turkish aviation for some time does not work in Syria. They hit the Kurds with artillery, but they are afraid of flying. Since they mean the same precedent they created with the Russian Su-24.
D. Medvedev: “So I looked today, John Kerry said: if Russia and Iran will not contribute to reconciliation, then we will have a land operation with Arab friends (I think it was an interview just for an Arab channel). in vain. Is he scaring his partners, that is, us, with this, or what? "
In fact, Americans frighten, first of all, themselves and at the same time their Turkish-Saudi allies.
As for the negotiations: “good”, but the capricious opposition did not want to sit down at the negotiating table, because Russia allegedly bombed it. Kerry and Obama lucidly explained to this opposition that when and if they sit down at the negotiating table, the Russians would stop bombing them.
“Now the main thing is to agree on negotiations between all parties to the Syrian conflict and decide on terrorist groups, because there are endless disputes around this: who is good and who is bad. this is what is called, from the evil one ", - said D. Medvedev.
That is, Russia has found the perfect way to separate the "good" opposition from the "bad." If we exclude ISIS and "Jabhat-en-Nusru", then "good" - which will cease fire and sit down at the negotiating table. And which does not sit down and will not stop, from fire and will perish. Because by definition "not good."
