TRUMP’S TWO-FACED POLICY IN SYRIA POSSIBLY WORK OF ROGUE CIA AGENTS; AL-MAYAADEEN LIBERATED COMPLETELY

Does anybody believe the U.S. is acting honorably in Syria?  Well?  The Russians don’t and they’ve been accusing the U.S. of duplicity in the fight against ISIS and pure indifference in the fight against Alqaeda which is now called Jabhat Fath Al-Shaam.  American two-facedness has reasons which need some analysis.

It is hard for this writer to tell if Donald Trump really has his finger on the foreign policy button. It is even more debatable whether Rex Tillerson has any influence on foreign policy.  The entire Trump administration has the appearance of a failing amateur circus existing only for some kind of tax deduction. Nowhere in the world is this more obvious than in Syria.

We all agree that if the U.S. wanted the war in Syria to end, it could contribute mightily to that conclusion by stopping all forms of assistance to ISIS and pressuring its allies in Saudi Arabia to turn off the financial spigot which is the first form of enticement these terrorist organizations can deploy to gain and keep recruits.  In interview after interview in Iraq and Syria, captured ISIS rodents continue to repeat the same mantra:  that they joined ISIS because it paid them $100.00 per month as a salary when nobody else in the country could deliver such generous sums.  In recently liberated Hawija, an ISIS recruit from the Muhaymin family told interviewers exactly that.  Other factors such as fear of Shi’i expansion, of course, are notable, but, in the final analysis, it’s money that talks in the world of recruitment.

The U.S. has been filmed, recorded and seen by witnesses who claim that the U.S. Air Force and Army would transport ISIS terrorists by helicopter from areas about to be overtaken by the legitimate Syrian Army.  Russia’s observers at Humaymeem have received very credible reports confirming America’s hypocritical policies toward Syria.  If it is true that Donald Trump is opposed to ISIS and has ordered his DoD to destroy it, then, in that case, it appears that another agency of government is working to sabotage the president’s policies.  That agency is, obviously, the CIA.

During the Obama years, the CIA was geared to overthrowing the legitimate government in Damascus, a war crime and a violation of international law.  CIA was committed to giving logistical support, training and financial help to organizations already listed as “terrorist” by the State Department.  Many of those terrorist groups were being supported by Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the Emirates who tended to favor groups fighting under the banner of Wahhabism.  Thus, with American allies complicit in the plot to oust Dr. Assad, it became even easier for the CIA to infiltrate and control many of the actions of the criminal enterprises lumped into the generic “opposition” label.  Those same CIA agents who were deeply involved in the failed operation to remove Assad from power are still in the CIA and have not joined the Trump bandwagon.

That’s one theory.  Another theory holds that Trump’s own sordid association with Prime Minister Benny Mileikowski, (a/k/a Netanyahu) pushes the president into the twilight world of Janus where he says one thing while doing something other.  Trump appears to be under the Mileikowski thumb as he plods his way from one disaster to another.  In fact, his decision to “decertify” the Iranian Nuclear Accord might be proof positive of the Rasputin-like influence Mileikowski enjoys over this new kook in the White House.

Iran’s growing influence in the region and its deeply-rooted intellectual heritage terrifies the Saudis and their rag-head allies in the Gulf.  While Iran has lived with crushing sanctions for years before the nuclear accord, it was still able to erect a formidable technological edifice that is now growing exponentially.  In the meanwhile, the Saudis, who practice a pre-Cambrian form of devil-worship, cannot export anything but oil and dates.  And the oil is pumped, refined and shipped out by foreigners.  God only knows who picks the dates and packages them.  It’s certainly not the Saudis.

It is clear to this writer that the Americans are not worried about Dr. Assad who seems, if anything, to be a slick operator who can marshall resources and alliances with his father’s cunning.  I sincerely believe that the move to oust the good doctor is viewed, even in the CIA, as a massive blunder, and, that he is viewed today in McLean, Virginia, as a better option than either Alqaeda or ISIS.  However, the Iranian bogeyman’s shadow is not dispelled by the continuity of the Ba’athist government in Damascus.  Iran’s power seems to be growing alarmingly.  It is quite possible that the CIA has come to the final conclusion that, like it or not, Assad has to go in order for the project in Syria to bear fruit.  The hypocrisy is playing out with this kind of thinking.

The CIA appears to be focused today on the possibility of manipulating the Iraqi government into an agreement to permit U.S. forces to remain in Iraq long after ISIS has been vanquished.  With the U.S. policy in Syria aimed at creating a buffer along the border to block Iranian natural gas pipelines in tatters after Damascus (with Iran’s help) neutralized the base at Al-Tanf, the U.S. has the other option of playing the Iraqi card.  If only Baghdad would permit such an agreement.

It is our opinion that Baghdad is more influenced by Iran than by the U.S.  It is a sorry conclusion for the CIA that it has participated in fighting ISIS in Mesopotamia, seemingly, once again, at the behest of Tehran.  Just as Iran watched gleefully as the U.S. destroyed Saddam’s Iraq only to be asked politely to leave by the Al-Maaliki government, it will watch even more gleefully as the U.S. struggles to extirpate ISIS from Iraq only to find out that P.M. Al-‘Abbaadi will also ask the Americans politely to head home after the present task is finished.  This might be why the Kurdish card is being played now despite the protests from Ankara.

Note that the U.S. is willing to sacrifice its relationship with Turkey over this issue.  Absolutely unwilling to accept a Rabelaisian failure of its entire Syrian project, the CIA continues to pursue one delusion after another. Maybe ousting Dr. Assad and his Ba’athist government is not as much a priority any longer – maybe it’s a secondary goal which will come about when all the CIA ducks are finally in a row.  This de-prioritization of overthrowing the government in Damascus is only a ploy to permit the U.S. to play a duplicitous game in Syia – to pretend to be fighting ISIS whilst providing it with all it needs to remain a thorn in the sides of the two governments in Syria and Iraq.  With this scenario in play, the U.S. can expect the Iraqi government to continue “needing” the U.S.  And if ISIS is miraculously destroyed, then, there is the U.S.-created crisis with the Kurds.  (Even now Iraqi forces appear poised to strike the Kurds at Kirkuk.)

Donald Trump does not read anything but articles that praise him.  In only 8 months, he has taken the U.S. out of the Paris Accord on Climate Change, but, with the hope that the “Master Negotiator” can get a “better deal” for the American people.  He is threatening to leave NAFTA unless he gets a better deal for the American people.  He has withdrawn from UNESCO because it is too mean to the Zionist Apartheid State.  He withdrew American support for the Pacific Rim nations’ pact and left it high and dry.  He just signed an executive order to denigrate the Affordable Care Act since Congress has been unwilling to abandon millions of Americans who finally have medical coverage.  He has concluded a deal with the Saudis, the world’s biggest supporters of terrorism, providing billions in weapons and ordnance while the people of Yemen are suffering under the barbaric heel of Wahhabist-inspired mayhem.  He has clumsily dealt with the aftermath of the devastation caused by a category 5 hurricane in Puerto Rico.  He has “decertified” the Iranian Nuclear Accord claiming Iran is violating the “spirit” of the agreement.  He has brought shame and disgrace to the U.S. and sullied its reputation as an honorable nation.

Is American policy in Syria two-faced? Yes.  With Trump claiming to be fighting ISIS, his own CIA has been ordered to maintain a “second track” to block Iran’s growth in the region.  We would like to warn the Prime Minister of Iraq that his head might be on the chopping block as the U.S. entrenches itself in his country.  Trump will not leave as easily as Obama because Mileikowski will order him to stay.

Alek, my sentiments exactly. I’m “agnostic” myself, but my faith is that no God I would want to be associated with for eternity would give us senses and reason, then punish us for using those gifts. No doubt Major General Issam Zahreddine had those gifts and used them to deduce that he must defend his fellow Syrians from the abominable alternative to his fight. In the unlikely event there is a Paradise, he is there. In any event, his heroism is historic and he will be revered as one of those who saved “Western values” in Syria from the evil… Read more »

Leith’s comment from AMN: BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:10 P.M.) – The prominent Syrian Arab Army (SAA) officer, Major General Issam Zahreddine, was killed today in Deir Ezzor after his convoy struck a land mine planted by the Islamic State (ISIS). According to a military source, General Zahreddine was conducting a special operation at Saqr Island in Deir Ezzor, when his vehicle struck the land mine. General Zahreddine was the commander of the elite 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard that heroically fought off the Islamic State (ISIS) for several years, while under siege and under supplied.

So sad to be one of the last to die, but at least he wasn’t the last to die in a mistake (meaning that fighting for the safety and freedom of fellow Syrians was not a mistake). It’s a play on an old concept arising from Nixon’s obsession with finding a “face saving” way out of Vietnam. He sacrificed close to half the GIs killed in Vietnam in order to bring “peace with honor.”

S200 was upgraded by Russia last year and the same missiles are used in S300 and S400’s. Different missiles used for different targets and range. S400 has other things but they are all interconnected. Remember Syrian AD now integrated with Russian AD. S200 can use targeting data from S400 if the target is near and not very fast.

Rothschild-Zionists-Illuminati-Freemasons will be PURGED.
Can take 5 years, can take 25 years, can take 50 years, can take 100 years, can take 500 years. But we get every single one of them and we get their DNA, then BANISH their children to Russia Siberia to die from old age in camps at -40 Celsius.

Kirkuk and Sinjal are the cream on top of the SAA DZ cake.

When IS is done, we will see the Syrian Kurd insurrection to be what the Syrian government has been saying all along. It had no substance. It is a myth.

And for minorities, especially the Yezidis, they will be free of a double genocide – first from IS, second by the Kurds.

Fantastic news all round.

Good news. The Khazar fighter jet which bombed an AA battery bear Damascus was the much-vaunted lemon known as the F-35 Lightning. it is now “unserviceable due to ‘bird-strike”. More Jewish humour. The F-35 is not vulnerable to bird strike. Syria announced the Zionists had infringed Syrian air space en route into Lebanese air space. Never let an opportunity go to waste, habibi. If this is what can be done to a one-hundred-million-buck plane by an S-200, look out when they use the S-300, or the S-400, or the S-500…

An excellent analysis of the situation in Iraq by Bernhard over at Moon of Alabama. Excerpt: The Kurds had pushed far beyond their original borders and occupied areas with critical oil reserves. The ruling Barzani family mafia sold the oil and pocketed the money that by law was owned to Iraq’s federal government. The Barzani militia mafia occupied the federal border stations to neighboring countries and kept all custom income to themselves. Meanwhile teachers and other public workers in the Kurdish region went unpaid. The Barzani family clan is only one of the powers in the Kurdish region of Iraq.… Read more »

I am not sure I can agree with your conclusion, however, when you say with some commitment that “I expect that President Trump will declare victory over ISIS in Raqqa and order the U.S. military to leave the country”. This assumes that the President has sovereignty. But given his recent behavior concerning the JCPOA and his failure to affirm Iran’s compliance, it is… Read more »

Donald Trump is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get. It was largely the military leadership that held Obama back in 2013. Let’s hope Mattis will exercise similar restraint on Trump. It’s not all that unusual for military leaders to urge caution and argue against the use of military force. Many military leaders were opposed to dropping the bombs on Japan in 1945. Even LeMay said it did not shorten the war, which would have been over in a matter of days without dropping the bomb: https://www.colorado.edu/AmStudies/lewis/2010/atomicdec.htm

Iraqi forces and PMU now have control of the important Rabia crossing between Iraq and Syria, taking it from Peshmerga forces. They have also entered Diyala province in Iraq and secured Highway 5 to the Iranian border. All Kirkuk oilfields have fallen back to Iraqi-PMU control and there are further pushes towards Erbil from the direction of Mosul. All these moves appear to be well coordinated, and the KDP-Peshmerga are ordered to mass withdraw inland, meaning a bloodless victory so far for Iraq and PMU. So it appears that there is a high level order for the KDP-Peshmerga to withdraw.… Read more »

The question could be also why Iran hasn’t supplied to Syria some real AA systems like the bavar 373, Raad, Ya Zahra,Herz-9? And why Iran hasn’t even delivered such systems to the Hizbullah since the Israeli warplanes violate constantly the sky of Lebanon without being targeted?
My guess is that they did, but they are waiting for a real war (not isolated provocations) to show what they have in store.

The next few days will show: 1) More areas under KRG occupation will be stormed and control will be back to Iraq. 2) There is huge tension in Sulaymaniah Province, this is a large Iraqi Province, under KRG but with a long border with Iran and locals (Arab and Kurds) not sympathizers to Barzani thugs.

No bullet fired, Peshmergas retreating from all Sinjar district. This is one of the most powerful move to break the so called Kurdistan State continuity, it will be severed in two and separate, physically, the Iraq Kurdistan from the occupied northern Syria by the SDF.

“bring infantry troops”? From where? You think that the Turks or Iraqis will allow them to use their territory for this? As long that they could airlift supplies & troops in Northern Iraq, it was possible to send them in Syria after, but now there is a blockade. At this precise moment it would be a suicide mission; I wouldn’t be surprised if the Pentagon is rather working on a plan to evacuate their SOF from “Rojava”

S-200 is a very efficient, but also vulnerable.
Because it is a static system, its vulnerable and an “easy” target for attackers.
Systems like S-300 can shoot and “disappear”
But i m wondering why it was destroyed.
Usually such systems are under an “umbreall” of systems like the Pantsir AD System, which
Syria has over 40 of them!

The allies aren’t stupid, so there must be a good reason and I imagine it is part political and part military. Aside from the need to indulge the insufferable Israelis who are always on the lookout for an opportunity to cry victim and expand their territory for purely defensive reasons of course, there is the issue that Russia needs anti-aircraft missiles for defense against NATO in case the doodoo ever hits the fan. If they aren’t using S300, S400 and other systems it is surely because they don’t want to give NATO any practice at developing countermeasures.

It has been shown in the Balkans war that fixed AA missiles are mostly obsolete against high tech opponents. Especially the radars are very vulnerable to radar seeking missiles, you can just keep them on for the minimum time to lock the missiles, then it’s time to relocate.
That’s why Serbia lost 70% of fixed missile defenses, while 85% of mobile launchers survived the NATO campaign.

This has been going on for far too long, I mean having a field day attacking Syria at will. When can this be stopped? Its been going on for years and s400 is sitting there but not being used to protect Syria.

Am told Israel has a smaller population and therefore can’t survive a war of attrition

So what did really hit the F-35? ISRAEL IS HIDING THAT ITS STATE-OF-ART F-35 WARPLANE WAS HIT BY SYRIAN S-200 MISSILE – REPORTS It looks that the Israeli “demonstration of power” during the recent visit of Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has turned into a total failure… Despite this, the Syrian Defense Ministry said in its statement that government forces responded to the violation of the airspace and “directly hit one of the jets, forcing [Israeli aircraft] to retreat.” This statement contradicts to the Israeli claim that “no hit” was confirmed. Few hours after the missile incident with Syria, the… Read more »

It was damaged and landed. That the S200 could get even close should be a testament to the Russian upgrades since they were inoperable before.

Iran has also upgraded the electronic of its S-200, so it could be them too.

Igor your message are usually helpfull excepted when it come to French. This is typically wasp humour, are you a wasp ? or did a french bloke shag your former girlfriend and you are still angry ? Now if you look at french history over the last 2000 years very few could invade and stay in France for long.

On this day in 1961 the French police massacred 300 Algerians protesters in Paris.

Peach Melbas. Classic. 😁😁😁 I’m stealing that!
What an abject humiliation. The crying, the upturned tanks and the helpless appeals to the international community. And where are all the sexy women soldiers? What a devious media we have.
I thought they were going to kick off another war, so my faith in humanity has just gone up a notch.

Iraq should demand the extradition of Barzani, and if he doesn’t surrender willingly, invade Kurdistan and arrest him. The Kurds will eventually thank them.

Four more villages liberated already inside the al Muhassan pocket : Zabqri, Silu, Al-Aliyat and Al-Tob, meaning the pocket is now only al Muhassan, this is a vital village for Deir ez Zour defensive perimeter, still close enough of the airbase.

The liberation of this pocket will have huge influence on the left side of the Euphrates as well, from Tabiyah to al Busayrah.

Iraqi forces took control of “vast areas” in oil-rich region of Kirkuk without opposition from Kurdish Peshmerga. The announcement came after reports Iraqi forces began moving at around midnight toward important airbase & oilfields located west of city. Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi gave orders to security forces to impose security in Kirkuk in cooperation with population and Peshmerga. (without opposition means cooperation? Mike).

add-on > if implied cooperation is lasting such is potentially good news for Syria – that SDF will not militarily oppose SAA – which would save a lot of Syrian lives on both sides. And, since Iraq demands Iraqi sovereignty over all Iraq vs Kurds, so shall Syria. Prayers. Mike.

a_r, the situation is very positive for the Iraq Government, they already captured all oil fields (2/3 of Iraq’s northern oil is extracted in Kirkuk’s few mega oil fields), a vital airbase/military base (K1), a refinery and many villages around Kirkuk.
Latest news are that part of the city is already safely in the hands of Iraq army, with people celebrating the reunion.

Keep an eye on the up coming war between PUK and PKD, this will be hot war in KRG.

They should overrun all Kurdish areas, find Barzani and arrest him. This would be good for the Kurdish people, whether they know it or not.

Excellent news from Iraq, central Government called Barzani’s bluff and is taking control of all oil fields, refineries and Kirkuk city, and that is just the beginning, info shared that the Iraq Army will also advance in Nineveh and get back control of border crossing with Turkey and Syria. So far Peshmergas are retreating, the Iraq army has under control most of Kirkuk without firing a bullet.
This action from Iraq will have tremendous impact in Syria.

Canthama “This action from Iraq will have tremendous impact in Syria.”

Yeah, you betcha!!!…

What’s the US to do, start killing the Iraqi military/PMUs??? Didn’t “we” fight a war to get “them” on “our” side.

Completely NON-saleable to US ppl. A complete dead end, and as Ziad points out here, only one of many.

They/”we” done f’d up. It really is insane/cacophonic “policy”, and this is where that leads. FWIW, a politically unsupportable terminus.

It could galvanize Syrian forces to seize back lands the Kurds seized during their opportunistic land grabs in the wake of ISIS, seeing that now Iraq is doing so and SDF are stretched thin. Kurds and the CIA must be very nervous.

Now that the PMU has started they should not stop cause if they do that would allow US to fully arm and support Kurds further. US is running out of acceptable options there and as they have proven in the past they will double up on their efforts regardless of how achievable the goals are, cause they thinb and act from the position of power…

Great holistic analysis Ziad.

Your lyricism is unmatched!!

Syria has won, but Syrians will still die out of imperial reflex. Makes me want to puke. Fingers crossed (and Canthama’s/Syrpers insights into the thinness of SDF claims/fighting ability).

I think I’ve said this before here, but the Syrian Kurds, should they prove guided by others’ self-interest, will literally be bled into submission and/or some rapprochement with the Syrian and/or Iraqi government to avoid, principally, Turkish aggression.

Kurds NEED Syrian inclusion/sovereignty to avoid an aggressive and incessant and non-funded (from Syrian Kurdish POV) hot war with Turkey/a NATO ally (ie. no/limited/deniable/cut-em-loose-when-we-don’t-need-them) political appeal.

Excellent video with the battle for Mayadin scenes, it clearly shows why the TFs quickly overcame ISIS new capital in less than a week. Very effective and strong coordination between ground forces, artillery and CAS, impressive battle scenes that basically set ISIS in panic, to the point they left a very significant and large cache of weapons and ammo behind in the city, a clear indication on how fast the city was liberated and unexpected for ISIS. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-y_GDJJB5s&feature=em-uploademail On another point, the TFs continue to go south toward al Bukamal, while the SAA and allies are now mopping up the… Read more »

For these powerful images to represent a classical war, the only missing element is a real flag in the ISIS rank: either the flag of the KSA or Israel or both. Shame on them, they cannot even handle the symbolism of a real flag.

Howard, the SAA will take it all, even the ones under the SDF. The clear short term objective for the TFs is to reach al Bukamal, they won’t stop for nothing. Keep an eye on few events: 1) al Muhassan pocket between Deir ez Zour and Mayadin, in just 2 days the pocket of some 10 villages was reduced to 2-3 villages, Muhassan among them. This is imperative for the safety of Deir ez Zour city, the control of the left banks and finally protect flanks to advance sotuh. 2) TF is in the outskirt of al Asharah, this mean… Read more »
