If a century ago Mark Sykes and François Georges-Picot shared out [in the name and on behalf of England and France] all North Africa and the Middle East, that is, the remains of the former Ottoman Empire collapsed with World War I, why it could not be done by the Americans today?

In theory, they have no international ‘title or mandate’ to sneak into Syria’s internal affairs, as in any other country in the area, but in practice they do and disassemble as they like.

That’s why now the game moves to the province of Deir ez-Zour and close to the Israeli border.

Men in power at the Pentagon have traced another line in the sand, an oblique line departing from the border with Turkey, which includes Raqqa, Deir ez-Zour and much of its province.

Washington now wants that the control of the territories of the dying Caliphate [east of that line] moves into the hands of their Kurdish allies.

And because the game with the Islamic State is close to its end, they are striving to recreate the conditions for a new “humanitarian” carnage.
