Why does Washington protect al-Qaeda allies from Russia and Syria?



The general confusion, which is actually US policy towards Syria, never ceases to amaze. This week, we watched a whole performance as the US State Department spokesman stated that Obama’s promise not to invade Syria was never a promise not to invade Syria. Yes, it was funny to see how awkward he was, but there was nothing funny about the policy that had been pursued in Syria for five years. Especially taking into account the thousands of people killed after the United States decided that Assad must leave the post and began sending fighters to achieve this. The director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, Daniel McAdams, for the AntiWar blog, was trying to figure out Washington’s attitudes toward factions. The translation of the material was prepared by the Federal Agency News.

Today, an unusual situation can be observed - the US government recognizes that the armed groups “Jaish al-Islam” and “Ahrar al-Sham” are fighting side by side and are associated with the “Front of An-Nusra” (groups prohibited in Russia), but rejects Russia's request to classify these two terrorist groups.

In fact, not only the struggle on one side and the link with Al-Qaeda (banned in the Russian Federation) do not allow classifying the groups as “terrorist”. The US government is actually asking the governments of Russia and Syria to stop shelling these forces.

The following is a request from the US State Department spokesman, Mark Toner: “The United States does not want Russia and Syria to be bombarded by Ahrar al-Sham and Jaish al-Islam terrorist groups, even if they are fighting side by side with An- Nusra.

So, the State Department is convincingly asking Syria and Russia to stop bombing Aleppo, since the groups are conducting operations there, even though he also admits that these fighters are associated with the Front of An-Nusra.

As Colonel Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said at a press conference last week, “first of all, An-Nusra controls Aleppo.”

Why does the State Department call for the cessation of military operations against the forces controlling Aleppo, while the Pentagon says that the operations in Aleppo are primarily led by An-Nusra Front?

Does anyone know what is happening there?

John Kerby, a spokesman for the US Department of State, is trying to justify himself by stating that since “Jaish al-Islam” and “Ahrar al-Sham” are also present in Syria (by contacting the “Front Al-Nusra”), “because they want be close to each other ”), there should not be a single attack on Aleppo, neither Russian nor Syrian.

However, at a February 22 press conference, Mark Toner, a State Department spokesman, openly stated that groups that fight side by side with Al-Nusroy or other terrorist groups in Syria will be considered legitimate military targets.

When asked whether groups fighting on the same side as Al-Nusroy in Syria would be considered military targets, Toner explained that these actions would make them: “Again, this is their business, to be honest, they make the final decision. I mean, if they are going to do this - I mean that they cannot - we clearly explained that - we, the International Syria Support Group, explained in an accessible manner that Al-Nusra and Jaish al-Islam are not part of any cease-fire agreement or any kind of agreed cessation of hostilities. So if you communicate with the wrong people, this is your decision. ”

Is everything clear? Does it seem like they are smoothing the wine?

    I understand that the Americans themselves do not understand anything.
    You can hardly find such a mess in the heads of the politicians of a country that considers itself the navel of the Earth in a psychiatric hospital ... Either some groups are considered by them to be a "legitimate opposition", then, after a while, the same groups become terrorists, then again - legitimate ... They are so entangled in their absurd actions that they slowly begin to go crazy. But, - from their main goal - the overthrow of Assad, they still do not give up. It is dangerous when a psycho has a weapon in his hands, twice as dangerous when this psycho is the USA ... !!!

          Remember! The descendants of pirates and slave traders, as well as world bankers of the US Federal Reserve, who imagined themselves to be “exceptional”, have no conscience by definition! To ask this question is to not understand the methodology of the geopolitics of the United States and the "collective West." Namely. The West ALWAYS in its actions proceeds from HIS geopolitical logic and hides it from its victims, and not from m / l. theories, as many Russians do.
          So, while the citizens of the USSR were stuffed to a certain degree with erroneous m / l. theories with abstract nationality of "proletarian" internationalism, in the West, such a science as geopolitics, which has actually been at least 400 for years, has developed. If we DO NOT understand the rules of this geopolitical “game” of the West with Russia all over the world and DO NOT develop adequate protection measures for ourselves, then Russia can really cease to exist, and its peoples will be destroyed by 90-80%, and the remaining ones will be assimilated.
          The geopolitics of the United States and the collective West view any situation in the world through the logical prism of the confrontation between Russia and the West in the framework of the great war of the CONTINENTS. They divide the world into 2 civilization camps - the Atlantic, moderated by the United States (or rather, the US Federal Reserve) and the Eurasian, with Russia at its center. The Atlantic evolved like the civilization of the SEA with its inherent predatory raids on peoples on various coasts of SUSHI cultivation. The Eurasian one evolved as a SUSHI civilization. And so it went on for centuries. Civilization of the SEA robbed the SUSHI civilization. The task of the SEA civilization is to enslave the SUSHI civilization - and, above all, as task No. 1, Russia and the Russian people, who cement it as a sovereign state, as the 2-th center of power. From here in the West fierce Russophobia is brought up under any political economy. system of Russia.
          Therefore, Westerners are completely unimportant whether international laws and regulations are respected or not respected. rights anywhere (but not in their countries!) and what politic. forces are participating there in domestic politics. processes (terrorists, fascists, ethno-nationalists, Islamists), and it is democratic or not. For the West, the MAIN THING - this is done in the geopolitical interests of the West (USA) or in the interests of Russia. The USA has the same attitude towards EU countries. And especially to the countries of civilization SUSHI in the BV - to Syria, Iraq, etc. The United States simply wants to have free space to ensure the life of its global globalist “elite,” cat. include finance. US Federal Capitalists. After all, trees do not grow on the sea, livestock are not bred, there is no green nature, minerals, etc. Based on this logic of geopolitics, Americans, as descendants of pirates, adapted to fight with the wrong hands, because there are always more Aboriginal people than pirates can put.
          Based on this geopolitics of the West, it was a mistake to believe that a change in the social system in the disintegrated USSR in 1991 would lead to US military detente against Russia, and NATO would self-destruct. Just as Russia was an enemy of No. 1 for the Anglo-Saxons and bankers of the US Federal Reserve, it remained. Therefore, the Empire of lies and evil - the USA - for Russia is the enemy No. 1. Struggling for its independence, the SAR with the constitutional order under Assad is also an enemy and a victim for the United States.

    for example, ours and the Syrians continue to thrash these groups. What will the states do? I don’t think they will fight for the scumbags. Maybe they’d put a MANPADS, so we must take into account the possibility of defeating these missiles. Respectively, apply tactics that exclude defeats. But continue to defend your interests and jam them further.

    Why be surprised? The goal of the United States is to bring as much confusion and chaos as possible. Which they do quite consciously. Until everyone is determined who is "for" Nusra, who is "against", the replenishment will arrive to the broads. And everything will blaze with renewed vigor ...
    Do not think that in the states some idiots are sitting. This is far from the case. No.

    What a mess? What chaos? "What eagle? What hare? What flea ????" ©. There was no confusion and there is not. Assad must go. For what? To divide Syria into puppet sub-states and to lay a gas pipeline. Why a gas pipeline? Lever of influence on Russia, and at the same time wringing out the dough "for rent" from the Saudi Qatar and these very non-states. Everything is simple, clear and transparent. And the fact that their political rhetoric is tongue-tied cannot be said openly, the times are not right.

    Oh, and the gentlemen from the FRS probably bite their elbows, that in America there is "democracy", and not monarchist despotism! How great it would be! "We, Barack from the Obama clan, the first of this name, by the grace of the Voodoo spirits, the king of the white, Latinos, narrow-eyed and blacks, the ruler seven kingdoms six continents and the defender of the state, we command! .. "And further down the list. And the notorious American Marines wash themselves in blood all over the world, but Barack the First does not care: after all, he does not need to think about whether you will be elected for a second term or not. World crises are resolved with tremendous speed, and no one counts the dead: why? The women are still giving birth, and in general we have overpopulation here in the seven kingdoms ...

    The following explanation is seen ... The Americans here very clearly convey their opinion to our leadership, and our leadership "delves into the situation and understands the partner" - everything is done in the hope that this partner will hear our "constructive" position in response next time ... But the situation repeats itself, like night and day - in response to our requests or comments, the partner pretends that he is hard of hearing, "did not hear" or did not understand, due to the stupidity of the performers. And the situation rolls back. This tactic works well, the bandits usually use it when they run into strong opponents who are not yet ready for retaliatory strikes for total destruction and cannot keep serious forces in defense for a long time.

    Everything is clear to the Americans! They will bend their line until they achieve their own, or until they break off their teeth, as in Vietnam and Korea.
    And why do we, like weirdoes, ask these amer-suckers who we should dispose of and who not? What kind of idiocy? We actually do not care about the opinion of the United States eight times in such circumstances. Bandits must be exterminated. And let the Merikos strangle themselves from evil impotence.
    All these pathetic diplomatic tricks of ours will not lead to anything good. There is an axiom - it’s impossible and futile to negotiate with terrorists. Americans are the most vile terrorists of all that existed on earth! So what's the point? Time to pull in anticipation of their imminent collapse? So you’ll get out if you don’t push them in time.

    It seems that politicians in the states are recruited from a madhouse. Their actions resemble a joke about a monkey, what is there to think, you need to jump.

    Why is Washington defending al Qaeda's allies?
    Because terrorists are a tool for solving the geopolitical tasks of the United States.
    The United States created it, they oversee it, but they cannot officially recognize it on their own, too serious crimes are created by their feeding.
    American politicians and officials have to provide cover for American terrorism around the world. They whitewash as they can, but their deeds are so black that reasoning is reduced to the postulate: "all black is white."
    The USA does not need peace, they need a war with a lot of victims, but ... on other continents.
    And a world in which there are states and peoples is also not needed.
    This is what American politicians are trying to hide behind verbiage.
    And do not try to look for logic in either actions or statements: they create one thing and say the other.
