NATO retired commander in Europe proposes to divide Syria "to end the war"

58
In the western edition Foreign Policy An article was published with the signature of the former commander-in-chief of NATO forces in Europe, American admiral James Stavridis. Stavridis presented his vision of how to resolve the Syrian conflict, which lasted for about 5 years.


NATO retired commander in Europe proposes to divide Syria "to end the war"


According to Stavridis, today's truce is a temporary measure that does not provide a solid basis for ending the war in Syria. Regarding the cessation of hostilities, Stavridis has his own recipe. The American retiree is confident that the war will stop if the territory of Syria is cut into rags.

At the same time, Stavridis gives the example of Yugoslavia, which, in his deep conviction, is an example of purely positive.

James Stavridis:
It becomes obvious that Syria has already ceased to exist as a single state. Separate parts of the country are governed by different leaders who have a very negative attitude towards the regime in Damascus. Therefore, it is time at the international level to think about the division of Syria and discuss this issue at the negotiating table in the Geneva format.


Further, Stavridis presents his own idea of ​​why a civil war broke out in Syria and a massive influx of militants took place.
The American admiral believes that the whole thing is “the cruelty of Assad, the shortage of drinking water and the fact that Syria is not such an ancient state like Turkey or Greece”. As can be seen, Mr. Stavridis does not consider Western support of individual terrorist groups for a change of power as the main reason ...

And why does a retired admiral propose to divide Syria to end the conflict? It is believed that if the United States, Turkey or Saudi Arabia were divided into separate territories, the process of normalizing the situation in Syria would go exactly faster ...

      Let Stavridkin forget about his "wet" dreams ...
      There will be no repetition of the Yugoslav scenario in Syria. Then Russia, the president of EBN ruled without leaving the binge. The country was robbed by all and sundry, close to the inner circle of the Borusik, the army and navy were subjected to unscrupulous looting and humiliation. Thank God that those days are over, the President is ruled, albeit not without mistakes, by the President, for whom the concepts of Russia, Russian, will and dignity are not just words.
      Once again I repeat: - YUGOSLAV SCENARIO IN SYRIA WILL NOT !!!

      It is strange, that is, to tear Syria at the international level - this is welcome, but to separate Crimea from a Ukrainians without a single shot is NOT possible ???
      And Donbass after the war is also a part of Ukraine?

        So they have a law that draws. Where it entered - there it happened. How can one refer to international law in a dialogue with those who ignore this right and put a heavy bolt on it? These jackals have only one right - to do it as they themselves are comfortable and profitable. And they gave this right to themselves. Exceptional, eprst ... Look, they started singing about the division of Syria ... But will not crack mug? Want to squeeze a piece of the country? And after all, it’s not so in the first one ... Vile little souls ...

      The United States would have divided Ukraine with such zeal. And Syria is a state. Here Daesh will be destroyed and begin to build a peaceful life.

    I have another suggestion:


    Dear Stavridis!
    And let's go in the week
    That would not be offensive
    Is the US divided at all?
    Scatter these states
    Part of Europe, part of Russia
    Southern that are not rich
    To the mexicans. They asked
    A couple of states for the Indians
    Aleutam All Canada
    Something for the Koreans
    And the Japanese also need
    Do not forget about the Arabs!
    These staff also wanted ...
    Hollywood Indians need it!
    And the Armenians are all motels
    Give Brighton Beach to the Jews
    (then they will capture everything themselves)
    Stop! Distributed what they wanted
    And then we ourselves will not be enough!

    What do we share with Syria?
    A span of land under three greatcoats?
    Better we divide the states
    Yes, Stavridis? On the week!

    Everything is as usual from American iksperdov "take away and divide", part of it. They are incapable of anything else. By the way, a talking cap, a level 80 military man voices his "hard-hitting assessments." Are they being taught chtoli for political scientists? It would be better to learn the materiel of something. Or four stars or how many are there so burning in the forehead that it is necessary to demonstrate their glow to all mankind?

      -------------------------
      Ukraine has always been a "passing" province, in which a peculiar ethnic composition was formed, based on Russians. The language features were brought by the Greeks, Czechs, Romanians and other South Slavic peoples. She could never build her own statehood. There was no cultural base, no army elite and no awareness of their identity. The motherboard was still Russia. This applies to all former provinces, including Kazakhstan and Asians. All of them are unstable state entities and without Russia they will not be able to carry out their defense and preservation within the existing borders.

      States decide which state is ancient?
      According to the logic of the admiral, who is more ancient is more true.

    lice divided into shreds looks much more attractive from the point of view of the entire normal population in the world. In the destroyed state, these downs will not be able to do more damage than if they were together further. Quote "The American admiral believes that the whole point is" Assad's cruelty, lack of drinking water and the fact that Syria is not such an ancient state as Turkey or Greece. ""This imbitil really does not consider Syria an ancient state. My opinion is that the territorial misunderstanding in the area between Mexico and Canada, which arose 230 years ago at the whim of the Freemasons, where lyadis, gallows, slaves and murderers flocked to be considered an ancient state - then my opinion is time to carry out the sentences , which were handed down 230 years ago to these founders and their descendants.But also a moment - if the level of intelligence of lice generals is the same as that of all mattress rabble, then the world will hiccup for a long time their antics and pearls. The main thing is that they are not allowed to large-scale conflicts.
