Announcing the start of military operations against the remaining strongholds of Islamic State, the US State Department hinted at a partition of Syria.
“The days of ISIS controlling territory and terrorizing the people of Syria are coming to an end,” a State Department spokesperson reportedly said.
The US will also work with Turkey, Israel, Jordan, Iraq and Lebanon to “secure their borders” from the Islamic State, she said to voice a smoke and mirrors game.
This has confused most objective analysts as the only remaining IS presence is near the Iraqi border. Particularly pertinent is that many see the ISIS as a veiled US proxy.
Telling too is the US spokesperson speaking of having a “strong and lasting” US footprint in Syria so that liberated populations “are not exploited by the Assad regime or its Iranian supporters.”
Last week, the US House of Representatives passed an attack which if approved by the Senate, would mandate US funds for recovery, reconstruction or stabilization in Syria against Assad
Russia too, supports the territorial integrity of Syria, but under Assad. Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says these “are only words” that serve as cover for “plans to partition Syria”.
The US’s language is “subterfuge,” a former Pentagon official said. The US and its allies intend to occupy the eastern part of Syria and partition the country. They will “use the Sunnis in East Syria and West Iraq to form a barricade to stop any Iranian influence”.
The US’s real objective is to align with Saudi Arabia and Israeli to fight Iran. “We’re getting sucked into another war”, a diplomat pointed out.
The US has troops in Syria without legal standing. The Russian military contingent is there at the Syrian government’s invitation, he said.
With US President Donald Trump having skeletons in his closet that could conceivably lead to impeachment, independent analysts doubt he will be allowed to read anything other than the US State Department script.
