US Special Representative: Assad's intention to regain control of Syria is nothing more than “science fiction”


"The Russians could not present a credible plan for ending the war, at the same time, President Assad states that he will return every inch of his land, this is science fiction, this will never happen, so I think the Russians should make certain decisions
stated McGurk.

Recall the conflict in Syria continues with 2011 g, according to the UN, its victims have become more than 280 thousand people. Assad troops confront numerous armed groups. The most active and powerful are the Islamic State and Dzhebhat al-Nusra groups.

      The US special envoy carries another nonsense. The conflict in Syria is not normalizing quickly. It's obvious. Assad does not look forward to 4 years, as for the American administration.

        That is yes. In general, the situation in Syria there, even in the best situation for Assad, is completely apocalyptic. Here is a review of the Syrian economy during the war years without taking into account the situation for 2016.
        The roots and causes of the conflict with the geopolitical disposition another time, and now the actual consequences of the civil war for the people of Syria.
        1. At least 210 thousand were killed and 840 thousand people were injured from 2011 to the present according to the UN.
        2. 53% of the inhabitants of Syria (from 20 million) were ousted from their homes. Were forced to move to a safer area.
        3. 3.3 million refugees from 20.9 million population on 2010 + 1.5 million people left for other regions of the world as migrants and another 2 million are nomadic (migrate through Syria on a permanent basis). The estimated population of Syria on 2015 year is less than 16 million people. 35% of the refugees went to Turkey and as many to Lebanon, 18.5% to Jordan and 6.9% to Iraq.
        4. 65% of Syrians live in extreme poverty (compared with 20% before the war), i.e. the threshold at which residents cannot provide themselves with food in the minimum acceptable standards. At least 83% of Syrians live in poverty (there is not enough money to meet basic needs for goods and services). Before the war, there were 33%.
        5. Education in a state of collapse. Over 51% of students do not go to school at all, because at least 30% of schools were destroyed, and 20-30% are used as shelters. Before the war, less than 7% did not go to school. More than 80% of higher education institutions have stopped their work. This will have irreversible consequences in the future, on the structure of jobs and on social factors. 
        6. Healthcare is in a similar collapse. According to preliminary information, over 30% of all medical institutions were destroyed or seriously damaged. The shortage of doctors is estimated at 70-80%, i.e. 7-8 out of 10 clinics are forced to either not function at all due to the lack of qualified personnel, or in a very limited format. In Damascus, 10 out of 13 hospitals are understaffed. Those. Hospitals operate approximately 20–25% of their potential (2010 level). This means that, per patient, the medical supply has decreased by almost 15 times! 
        Economic implications.
        1. In Syria, at least 20% residential and more than 27% social infrastructure were destroyed.
        2. According to preliminary data, the real GDP of Syria has fallen almost 3 times relative to 2010 (in the whole territory). 
        3. Exports fell more than 6 times from 13-15 billion before the war to 2.2-2.5 billion. 
        4. More than 2.5 million people (or half of the total number of employees on 2010) lost their jobs. Unemployment rose from 10% to almost 60%!
        5. Prices in Syria over 4 years increased by an average of 4.5 times. Prices for the main groups of goods increased 6-7 times
        6. The national currency rate of Syria has fallen almost 4 times against the dollar during the entire conflict. On the black market, the fall is stronger - 5-6 times 
        7. The national debt of Syria has grown from 23% of GDP to 147%. The budget deficit is 35-40% of GDP, which is the highest level in the world. 
        8. The estimated cost of the destroyed infrastructure of Syria exceeds $ 75 billion - this is higher than the current GDP of Syria. The estimated damage to Syria is approximately 200 billion dollars.

          That's who needs to say a separate atomic thanks for all these deeds. lol . I think the answer is obvious, to representatives of the Anglo-American-Saxon nation, who actually is McGurk.

              It is noticeable that you live there. Israel during its existence (since 1949), has conquered with all its neighbors, and continues to bully against the entire Arab world. This is probably from a great desire to live in peace. And what about the Dutch heights, can you return? So to speak as a sign of goodwill.

                  Sealed up. Golan, what difference does it all understand perfectly well about what. As for self-cutting, decide for yourself, but I know for sure, the whole Middle East, and not only, will breathe more freely.
                  In 1981, the Israeli Knesset passed the Golan Heights Act, where Israel unilaterally proclaimed the sovereignty of Israel over this territory. The annexation was invalidated by UN Security Council Resolution No. 497 of December 17, 1981.

    The fact is that Russia is also monitoring the situation in the country neighboring your country, while it does not threaten your life, but it will defend its interests as it sees fit, even if it’s not near to live. And do not play the fool, you all perfectly understand, do not cast a shadow on the wattle fence.

    Aron Zawi! 12.23. The fact that the Syrian economy is destroyed is understandable. But another question arises. What if Assad leaves? What will happen to the economy? I think for examples far from Syria do not need to go. Then Iran will be a very totalitarian country. There must have been an attempt to burn Turkey. As a result, all countries of the oil basin will be embroiled in a civil war, and the Americans will buy cheap oil from devastated countries. A drop in oil prices will hit Russia's budget. Refugees will trample to Europe and there will be attempts to arrange a civil war. Which will also hit Russia. The cessation of trade and the flow of refugees clearly will not strengthen our country. Just as the surrender of the Libyan leader has not strengthened the world, so the surrender of the Syrian leader will not strengthen. And our army in Syria simply reflects the American attack on distant approaches.

      If you are interested in my opinion, it will be even worse. Firstly, Assad is a figure around which secularists and religious minorities have united. The departure of Assad will lead to the collapse of this coalition, the collapse of the country and, therefore, to even greater chaos and worsening economic situation.

      Well, let's start in order of receipt.
      1. "an overview of the economy and the internal political situation in Syria before" ..... Definitely not. "The people will not understand, or even worse will misunderstand"
      2. Penguins are also a problem. Penguins turned out to be a monkey with a grenade. And now we live with her on the same platform. She would shove her roofing felts, toli the neighbor from great respect.
      3. Penguin crap around the world. I'm in stupor. I saw charred corners, how many penguins I didn’t drink ... maybe not or not right?
      4. Better lived or worse, this is a subjective question. But the fact that they would live is unequivocal.

    Hardly. He just voiced what the US intends to do. And they will in every possible way (IMHO) prevent the establishment of peace in Syria and in every way support the opposition opposing Assad and their brainchild - DAISH. In this case, the governments of Syria and Russia will indeed have to make drastic decisions - "to beat or not to beat."

      what other return over the whole of Syria ?? Where does Assad get so much soldiers and equipment and money ??? Okay, all of a sudden, miraculously, the Russian Federation and Iran will completely bear this burden, meaning the full equipment with the most modern systems. But where to get the soldier ?? Shiite world and so helps as much as possible. Without the soldiers of the Russian Federation and an even greater number of Iranian soldiers, control is only a dream.

Politics in the states is done by completely different structures and people. That Psaki, that Obama and McGurk, do not differ in their official duties. Their task is not to make politics, but to voice it, they have no power. Only our liberals pray to the president of the United States as a god, in fact, he has zero real influence. And the names of those people who really manage world politics and economy will never be officially announced.

    "The Russians could not present a credible plan for ending the war, at the same time, President Assad states that he will return every inch of his land, this is science fiction, this will never happen, so I think the Russians should make certain decisions

    Russia has a plan to end the war, and it is putting it into practice. But the fact that the "coalition" is fighting IS is a fantasy, and unscientific at that.
    The states and their allies "must make some decisions" whether they are fighting IS or Assad.

      Alas, the states are fighting with Assad, and with the help of the IG.
      Probably the United States needs to make a decision to stop the fight against Assad, which will mean simultaneously stop supporting terrorism - this decision really helped to stabilize the situation in Syria and many lives would be saved.
      Today, leave the Syrian Western coalition led by the United States - the situation in the country will begin to change in a matter of days for the better.
      America does not fight terrorism - the USA supports the Islamic State: cunningly, stealthily, hiding behind the correct slogans, they are dismembering Syria.
      Assad’s departure would have greatly simplified the achievement of the goal — it would remain to find another parsley to give legitimacy to the realization of American interests in the region.
      The point is not the figure of Assad-Yankee, it is necessary to replace the president of the country, who defends national interests with a conductor of American interests.

    Science fiction is therefore called "Science fiction, because it is based on completely logical conclusions of futurists and is based on trends in science and technology of today and tomorrow, on the direction of development of today's society. That is, in fact, science fiction describes what may appear in the future. with a more or less high probability. So the taking control of the entire territory of Syria by the incumbent President has every chance of being realized. I would not like to throw jingoistic slogans like "Now Russia is there and we will show everyone", but the military use of the Russian Aerospace Forces is making positive results in achieving these goals.Of course I would like everything to move to the end faster, but as the saying goes, "Only cats will be born quickly"

    [quote] The roots and causes of the conflict with the geopolitical disposition another time, and now the actual consequences of the civil war for the people of Syria.
    1. At least 210 thousand were killed and 840 thousand people were injured from 2011 to the present according to the UN.
    2. 53% of the inhabitants of Syria (from 20 million) were ousted from their homes. Were forced to move to a safer area.
    3. 3.3 million refugees from 20.9 million population on 2010 + 1.5 million people left for other regions of the world as migrants and another 2 million are nomadic (migrate through Syria on a permanent basis). The estimated population of Syria on 2015 year is less than 16 million people. 35% of the refugees went to Turkey and as many to Lebanon, 18.5% to Jordan and 6.9% to Iraq.
    4. 65% of Syrians live in extreme poverty (compared with 20% before the war), i.e. the threshold at which residents cannot provide themselves with food in the minimum acceptable standards. At least 83% of Syrians live in poverty (there is not enough money to meet basic needs for goods and services). Before the war, there were 33%.
    5. Education in a state of collapse. Over 51% of students do not go to school at all, because at least 30% of schools were destroyed, and 20-30% are used as shelters. Before the war, less than 7% did not go to school. More than 80% of higher education institutions have stopped their work. This will have irreversible consequences in the future, on the structure of jobs and on social factors. 
    6. Healthcare is in a similar collapse. According to preliminary information, over 30% of all medical institutions were destroyed or seriously damaged. The shortage of doctors is estimated at 70-80%, i.e. 7-8 out of 10 clinics are forced to either not function at all due to the lack of qualified personnel, or in a very limited format. In Damascus, 10 out of 13 hospitals are understaffed. Those. Hospitals operate approximately 20–25% of their potential (2010 level). This means that, per patient, the medical supply has decreased by almost 15 times! 
    Economic implications.
    1. In Syria, at least 20% residential and more than 27% social infrastructure were destroyed.
    2. According to preliminary data, the real GDP of Syria has fallen almost 3 times relative to 2010 (in the whole territory). 
    3. Exports fell more than 6 times from 13-15 billion before the war to 2.2-2.5 billion. 
    4. More than 2.5 million people (or half of the total number of employees on 2010) lost their jobs. Unemployment rose from 10% to almost 60%!
    5. Prices in Syria over 4 years increased by an average of 4.5 times. Prices for the main groups of goods increased 6-7 times
    6. The national currency rate of Syria has fallen almost 4 times against the dollar during the entire conflict. On the black market, the fall is stronger - 5-6 times 
    7. The national debt of Syria has grown from 23% of GDP to 147%. The budget deficit is 35-40% of GDP, which is the highest level in the world. 
    8. The estimated cost of the destroyed infrastructure of Syria exceeds $ 75 billion - this is higher than the current GDP of Syria. The estimated damage to Syria is approximately 200 billion dollars. [/ Quote] [/ quote]

    And give figures about the losses of the population of the USSR in 1941-1945, its economy and social life, or what we needed to think when the Germans near Moscow stood and looked through the binoculars at the Kremlin AND WHAT WAS NEXT, THE APOCALIPSIS HAS BECOME FOR US OR FOR GERMANS ?? ?

    The defeated economy of the country after 1945 created nuclear weapons, the best tanks and very worthy aircraft.
    And after that, fantastic again. The country fell apart, all the achievements went to dust.
    Well, then again, fantastic. Russia is a country to be reckoned with again. We have advanced nuclear power, a strong army again, we are building our planes again and are rolling the Americans into space.

    Fiction is all that does not fit into the calculator of a monster smelling of money of the industrial and financial groups of the West. But where Russia is, the formulas of the West do not work. And this causes him natural fear.

    What do they say about Crimea?


    The UN Security Council expressed its vision for the Crimea-this is the territory of the Russian Federation !!!, all the decisions of the Russian government to link Crimea to the Southern Federal District-an internal affair of Russia !!! The ridiculous decisions of the Kiev authorities do not concern us - let them laugh. (cry)

    Scaring a hedgehog with a bare ass is always funny. Moreover, the last ports have already been sold and sold.

    If Russia helps, then the fairy tale will come true ... but the main weak link is ... Russia and its "interests".
