DE MISTURA NOT SO MYSTERIOUS; DR. ASSAD KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT’S IN HIS BAG OF TRICKS; FEDERALISM AS A TROJAN HORSE

Hubble bubble, toil and trouble.  Abracadabra, please and thank you.  Staffan De Mistura, practices the black arts at the United Nations.

“White people think they are so clever.  Clever to a fault.  When they can’t have their way through the front, they go through the back door.  And when they can’t open any doors, they just blow the house up.” Ziad A. Fadel from his “Compendium of Ziad’s Quotations” (Random House, 2017) 

Staffan De Mistura is no mystery to SyrPer.  He comes as the third in a short list of failures starting with Kofi Annan, and then, Lakhdar Brahimi.  All were complete flops.  In fact, SyrPer awarded Lakhdar Brahimi the annual Miguel De Cervantes Don Quixote Award for Tilting at Windmills in appreciation of his uselessness as a U.N. mediator for the Syrian crisis.  Yet, despite prior shortcomings and suspicious proclamations, the tag-team of Annan-Brahimi managed to establish one very serious fact on the ground:  you have to have the involvement of Russia to get anything done right.  And so, with Vladimir Putin in the saddle, much of the previous impediments to the convening of a conference to resolve the crisis were eliminated.

     

Russia’s Marlboro Man incarnate.  I can hear the Elmer Bernstein theme song from the “Magnificent Seven” arranged by Serge Prokofiev.

So what were the impediments, you ask? Let’s list them:

1.  The Syrian Opposition, couched in the singular, belied the ugly truth that it was one “opposition”.  Instead, it was an oleo of groups and individuals motivated by the desire to oust the very popular president of Syria who just happened to be:

a.  Alawite (Although his religiosity won’t get him through the Pearly Gates)

b.  A Ba’athist (Secular and Pan Arab)

c.  Progressive (A real downer for dyed-in-the-wool Islamists)

d. Connected to Iran (Makes Zionists, Wahhabists and Qataris cringe)

e. Connected to Russia (Makes Americans and NATO-ists twitch uncontrollably)

f. Rich as Croesus. (Hey, he’s an Arab leader of an Arab country. What did you expect?)

g. Married to a gorgeous and superbly educated Syrian woman born in England. (This really miffs Erdoghan whose wife resembles a samovar)

h. Blue-eyed.  This is a major obsession with Obama.  “Huccum I don’t gots dem blue eyes?” Sorry Barack, it’s the Crusades.  You missed it.

And, then, there is the makeup of the opposition:

2.  The Syrian Opposition hates itself.  It would be nigh impossible to find one group or one individual who didn’t despise all the rest.  For example:

a.  Dr. Haitham Al-Mannaa’ considers all other groups terrorists.  All other groups think Al-Mannaa’ works for Dr. Assad. Nizaar Nayyoof, a left-leaning Alawite opposition activist and award winning non-entity, is suspected of being an Assad agent although he spent 10 years in a Syrian prison ostensibly, according to his enemies, to write a thesis on the penal system, a veritable sequel to “Shock Corridor”.  Then there’s Captain Kangaroo, a/k/a George Sabra who once led the ineptly named “National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces” (NACOSROF) -well, isn’t that precious?  As a Christian communist, he mixes Antiochian Orthodox rituals with devil worship just to bide his time before his anticipated rise to power as the new president of Syria.  (He will be lucky if the Syrian Political Security Bureau lets him pick his preferred noose at his upcoming execution.)          

George Sabra, seen here at his “penthouse” apartment in an Istanbul bordello courtesy of MIT’s Hakan Fidan.

b.  Then, there’s the hotelier opposition who get to stay in 5 star hotels in cities like Geneva, Istanbul, Cairo, Riyadh, Doha, Madrid, Paris and Newark.  Their lives are spent figuring out what they are going to do after Dr. Assad decides he’s going to run for his third term as president.  Haitham Al-Maalih, who has called for Dr. Assad’s execution, going so far as to promote the beheading of all the Assad children, must be planning a renewal of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” which he might successfully produce in Borneo.  Then there’s Ma`moun Al-Homsi, who famously pointed an accusatory index finger at an imaginary audience of Alawites, as he warned them of standing up and defending their country.  He certainly has a great future as Syria’s new Minister of Subterranean Hygiene.  Other Holiday Inn luminaries are:  Ghassan “Shitto” Hitto, Ahmad Al-Khateeb and the very forgettable Turkish matron, Suhair Al-Atassi,  whose future selling Avon cosmetics at the Reyanli Refugee Camp is virtually assured.

c.  But, there’s also the Saudi-Qatari-Raghead coalition of disgruntled anti-Iranian faux-Sunni Wahhabist blaspheming wigglers who perform any act, no matter how foul, to please their Arabian financiers.  These include such sedenterized grubs like Ahmad Jarbaa, a scion of the illustrious Shammar tribe which spans areas from Syria, Iraq to Jordan and Arabia.   For some reason, the white CIA goons in Langley thought he’d be just “nifty” as an on-site comprador, what his history as Syria’s reigning Super Pimp.   And, also, Kamaal Labwaani, who has made Occupied Palestine his new home as he grovels for jackbooted Zionist affection whilst snubbing his nose at Palestinians who could never have it so good.  Why he actually told the Mileikowski (Netanyahu) junta that he would “personally” turn over the Golan to them once Dr. Assad was overthrown.  Such dreams in the minds of such imbeciles.

And, there is the 3rd impediment which is an axis of nations committed to ousting the president of Syria because he trucks with the Iranians and has given Iran the go-ahead for its game-changing natural gas pipeline across Iraq to the Syrian coast.  The axis is made up of Saudi Arabia, the Zionist Obscenity and Turkey – a pretty formidable looking alliance but for the presence of the first member which has managed to boondoggle in a war against the poorest, and, yet, the most obdurate nation in the Arab World,  Yemen.  And we note, with much consternation – spiced with the usual venom – that each has found his own quagmire; the Turks in northern Syria with the PKK and the Zionists who are planning another dimwitted invasion of Lebanon to take on Hizbollah and, not to be neglected, Saudi Arabia for the reasons set forth herein-above.  Sounds like someone is planning his own big exit, doesn’t it?  Whatever the case, these nations have no interest in the success of the Geneva talks. To the contrary, they have every reason to scupper the talks.

The U.S. is struggling to keep the Saudis happy while not immersing itself in another foreign catastrophe.  Obama’s recent interview with the Atlantic Monthly said a lot about his vision for the U.S., even after he leaves office.  It seems the Obama Doctrine, using other people’s armies to accomplish American strategic interests, has given way to a more subtle form of isolationism.  Obama lambasted Cameron for the mess in Libya and virtually rubbed the Saudi’s snouts in their own ordure when he called them free-loaders.  Yet, while American-Saudi relations may have reached an all-time low, the U.S. has not given up on using chicanery to deflect any ridicule from their once beloved Wahhabist allies.

The U.S. actually convinced many of the “opposition” that the issue of Dr. Assad’s future – that is the presidency itself – was a critical part of the agenda and still up for grabs.  Muhammad ‘Alloosh, whose derelict brother was recently vaporized by the Syrian Air Force in the Ghouta, declared pompously on Thursday that no talks would be meaningful without the departure of Dr. Assad.  This was actually repeated, using different patter, by the U.N. mediator himself who started a rumor about presidential elections and a new constitution in the next 6 months.  The Syrian government, speaking through Foreign Minister Waleed Al-Mu’allim and the chief negotiator at the Geneva talks, Dr. Bashar Al-Ja’fari, quickly disabused the opposition of any such possibility.  Even the Russian team further dampened the atmosphere by reiterating a legalistic argument that only the Syrian people could decide the fate of their leader.

So, what does the U.S. do?  It begins to float another idea which discloses Washington’s (correction: Neo-Conservative Washington’s) real intent.  This is something we have written about before:  create new states as buffers against the economic expansion of Iran.  Since the first effort to destroy Syria’s government was a miserable failure, the U.S. has embarked on a new, oooh-so-clever plan:  Federalism!  Let’s chop up Syria into states which are self-governing with a sterile central government teetering-and-tottering on the margins of oblivion.  If the U.S. can get the parties to accept, for example, a United States of Syria, comprised of the State of Kurdistan, the State of Druzistan, the State of Alawistaan, the State of Turkomanistaan, the State of ISIS-Wahhabistan, Sunnistaan, Orthodoxistaan and Armenistaan, then, you manipulate the configurations of the states such that no Iranian oil gas line can cross any friendly territory.  Isn’t that unbelievably intelligent?  Wow.

De Mistura, like his predecessors, works for the United States and Europe.  Make no mistake about it, he advertises his occidental tastes by merely dressing every morning.  He knows who pays his fees and he’s not concealing his own collusion with John Kerry in kiting trial balloons at the conference to see if maybe one of them will endure.  So far, Dr. Ja’fari, has shot down each one.  Waleed Al-Mu’allim went even further and told the world that Dr. Assad’s presidency is a “red line”.

So, what  will the opposition do?  Gee, folks, I just don’t care.  And what will the Saudi apes do?  Ditto.  It appears that with no chance of achieving anything at the conference, the military option remains the only one.  All this will play out as the Syrian Army and Russian Air Force continue their massive onslaught against the only allies of Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Khazaristan who are killing Syrians:  the terrorists – ISIS and Alqaeda.  What a universe of hypocrisy for the United States and NATO in which Obama, Cameron and Hollande can wallow.  We know what you’re doing, De Mistura.

You might learn to read aswell. Russians are not withdrawing, only some of them. This is not a good new, perhaps, but neither bad. After the modernisation of the saaf there is not that much need of the Russian air force. Besides, probably there are not that many targets left for the Russians after 6 months of targeting the mercenaries.

Putin said Russia’s intervention would last about 6 months. Guess what, it’s almost 6 months! Plus, one of the biggest chores accomplished by Russia was the retraining and refitting of the SAA to enable it to finish the job. So, the withdrawal begins; it was going to happen at some point. We don’t know how fast, but I’ll bet the most important contingent–the trainers and mechanics–will be around for quite awhile, as will most of the airforce, which was just recently beefed up. So, don’t pout!

The funding is coming out of the training budget. Troops have to be kept fully trained, and what more effective a way than this? Training in a real war setting. In addittion, Russia has managed to dispose of a lot of very old munitions. The early bombs dropped by the RuAF were decidely rusty and well past their ‘best use by’ date. The Russian military has put out a tender for the dispsosal of ~5000 older ATGMs. Maybe Syria will put in a bid?

Nothing good, indeed. This means the S-400 will be withdrawn, too. They should leave at least the air defense.

Anyway, we do not know the details and the background, yet. Economical problems? ( Doubt it, operation not very expensive ) Pressure by some of our idiots inside Russia? Questions over questions.
One thing is sure: treason in unforgivable. If Syria´s enemies win in the end, the responsible should know it.

We know that they have given the SAA the upper hand. But where the SAA always failed in the past was when the terrorists were receiving air support and cover from NATO/Turkey. With the s400’s gone the Turks & NATO will be back with even more force than before as they may feel they will not get another opportunity.… Read more »

“Russia is declaring victory.” I agree 100%! The initial goals of Russia’s operation are accomplished; Putin promised it would be of a limited duration; Russia’s very fortunate to have accomplished so much with so few casualties; there’re two major ongoing offensives Russia’s still supporting; and it seems certain the Turk and Saudi invasion declarations were only so much smoke given their actions since.

hvrost: Russia is keeping its naval and air bases, and will probably retain the S-400s at permanent installations, but will not trust Syrian command with them. If RuAF has taken over Tiyas AFB, and also assumes Kuweiris, with S-400s, they can cover all of Syria, part of Iraq, most of Israel and about half of Turkey. Additionally, it would make sense for Russia to withdraw the current personnel and rotate in fresh forces for battlespace training, which is what I rather suspect will happen.

The Russian withdrawal threat is either:

1. Taken at face value that Daesh can now be defeated by Syrian and allied forces

2. Taken as pressure on Syria to negotiate by reminding its leadership of what it faces going it alone

3. Or taken as a trap to dupe Turkey and the coalition into invading so they can be destroyed.

4. Bravado that shows how confident Russia is and what quick work it made of destroying the terrorists

5. Reverse psychology where Russia will actually strengthen on Turkey’s borders but signal the opposite

Nothing says these are mutually exclusive.

In other words, the defense treaty is about to get activated because of Turkey’s aggression. This is what inspired 3 and 5 mostly.

I think we are over thinking and reading a little too much in this thing. 1st lets talk about the so called federation,, to me this is a clear sign that the enemy has come to accept the defeat of their project of replacing the Dr. Assad government with one of hteir choosing, so the step down from there is power sharing in different locals or a federation!!. That is another Saudi/Turks proposal that won’t fly. Nobody really has to do much. You’ll see the Syrian public all over Syria won’t accept it. 2nd the Russians never had any substantial… Read more »

So you believe it is a meaningless diplomatic gesture to signal a willingness to support a genuine political settlement to the conflict, with an outcome Russian does not control since it will be negotiated when in fact Russia will control the outcome through its alliance with Syria, Iraq and Iran on the battlefield? Very possible. Syria’s centralized government is a federal system; what people are calling federation is beyond decentralized government and more akin to partition. Decentralization is not inherently evil but federation that establishes foreign occupation, partition or surrendering sovereignty to any foreign elements would be high treason. Syria… Read more »

No you’re not thinking this thru realistically. There is no absolute victories on this battlefield anymore, that’s why the Americans are reigning in the Saudi/Turks.

“Apna” No foreign minister calls his own shots. Nothing is decided without Putin’s OK.

I just hope this is not premature and that Dr. Assad and the people of Syria can prevail on their own. Syria may need Hezbollah and Iran’s help more than ever.

Everybody be calm and cautious and no panic at all, Putin has already mentioned that a military presence will remain in Tartus and Khmeimim. Let’s remember that Russia has a strategy, and that strategies do not end nor begin in a fortnight, otherwise they are called defeats. And, in Syria, Russia is all but defeated. The fight is still long, but after six years we should start being confident that the resistance put up by Syria is not only a miracle, but the obvious fruit of a silent, organised, international coordination.

It is certainly sad to find confirmation again and again that, small and big, politics is all about interests and not about friendship, but it also helps to know what is Russia’s interests in Syria, besides blocking the Qatari pipeline. That interest is weakening Turkey, a Russian objective for the last 200+ years. The weakening of Turkey means also breaking the wall blocking access to the Mediterranean Sea. And then, no one wants “independent” leaders/states, remember that?

I told you guys about Russia and its interests a month ago, but some chose to argue with me. This pullout is not some sort of feint or double game. It is a pullout of “main military” (Putin’s words) assets from Syria. This obviously includes major air assets as well. Press TV reports that Russian staff will remain to ensure “aviation safety” only. When Russia makes a public withdrawal announcement like this, it’s not easy to reverse.

So Russia threats against Syria and Iran are put into action. ● S-300 for Iran “postponed” again.
