The terror proxies that the Central Intelligence Agency has furnished in Syria over the past five years no doubt smell a rat that Washington is about to sell them out.
The Washington Post reported last week: “The Obama administration has proposed a new agreement on Syria to the Russian government that would deepen military cooperation between the two countries against some [sic] terrorists in exchange for Russia getting the Assad regime to stop bombing US-supported rebels.”
Apparently, American solicitations for Russian cooperation has been ongoing for several weeks, perhaps even months. When the Saudi regime’s leaders, including deputy crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (the king’s son), were invited to the White House last month, it is most likely that this key US partner in the Middle East was briefed on the plan. The Saudis weren’t pleased, as indicated by their call immediately following the White House meeting for an escalation of American military intervention in Syria, thus appearing to snub the Obama administration.
American covert supply of weapons into Syria for overthrowing the Assad government has found its way to all factions, including the notorious al-Qaeda-linked terror groups, Al Nusra Front and Daesh (ISIS/ISIL/IS). Washington’s regional partners Saudi Arabia and Turkey have acted as major conduits for this material and financial support to the illegally armed groups.
The notion of legitimate, moderate “rebels” whom the US and its allies allegedly support, as opposed to “terror groups”, is just a risible ruse, as most informed observers of the five-year Syrian war have known from the beginning.
Of course, any distinction between “terrorists” and the palatable-sounding “rebels” is a fiction.
Last week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov protested – yet again – that Washington has not moved decisively to segregate armed factions that it backs from the internationally proscribed terrorists in Al Nusra Front and Daesh. The reason for this is simple: because all these militants are orchestrated by the same state sponsors – the US, its NATO allies, Britain, France and Turkey, and the Arab monarchies of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Russia’s masterstroke was its military operation in Syria last October. That completely turned the tables of this conflict, whereby the US-backed terror proxies for regime change have been thwarted. The Russian operation ensured that allied Syrian armed forces have been able to decimate the US-backed regime-change terror front.
Washington and its partners have not given up on their strategic objective of toppling the Assad government. There is good reason to conjecture that the next US administration following Obama’s departure early in 2017 will ramp up its military involvement in Syria, either by stepping up covert support to its proxies, or by direct American intervention….[…]…
