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.

Turkey is being Turkey and using the de-escalation zone to enforce checks on Kurds in Afrin. Somehow Putin will have to convince Erdogan to be on the same page as Syria, Russia and Iran in Idlib and join the fight against HTS. These guys can be eliminated very quickly if Turkey, Iran, Russia and Syria all join and destroy them. The idea would be to gradually pick off each group one by one, until only a handful are left, after which you get them to fight against each other or go in for mopping up.

It would be too difficult for him to mend his relations with Syria, too late, so he is just waiting that the Americans drop their support for the Kurds to side with them (NATO) again.

Turks and Kurds (or is it Kurts?) are mirror images of one another. Oh, I guess that’s why everybody here talks about Turds! In the 21st Century, Turks and Kurts will always be opposed. It’s a bit of an historical anomaly, since in the early 20th Century Kurts were happy to collaborate with Turks in cleansing Armenians and Assyrians. Anyway, in the recent past, the shifting alliances of both Turks and Kurts have depended on the US commitment to one or the other.

The CIA and the Ashkenazi overlords are the real terrorists that ought to be reigned in. ISIS is nothing compared to these guys. ISIS tries to rule villages and a couple of cities, these guys overthrow governments for a living. And lately, they haven’t been having a good time either.

If the US political system is unable to reign in AIPAC and the CIA, it means there is a systemic failure in those lauded “checks and balances”.

I have seen dates from Iraq. But others do not farm enough to export. But I did see the saudi’s were willing to export sand. Which is also a commodity if you saw the level of growth in other parts of world turning swamp land into condo’s. Saudi’s have ideas but little practical applications since people they hire do not have a sense of commitment. They act like Bedouin ayrabs. Where instead of growing the grass if it runs low they pack up and move to fresh pastures.

Rifts have widened among members of the SDF as hundreds of fighters said they plan to defect the group, an Arab media outlet reported on Saturday. A number of Arab members of the SDF had previously cut relations with the Syrian Democratic Forces and left the village of al-Rawiyeh West of Ra’as al-Hossein in Hasaka for Turkey.

I’m no an expert regarding Iraq, but Abadi seems to be sat between two chairs; strong economic pressure from the US, bad for his next election if he collides directly with them, but strong influence from Iran as well, so he is sandwiched. At least he rejected the demand from Muqtada al-Sadr to dissolve the Hashd al-Shaabi. al-Sadr seems the real spoiler.

Dear Igor,
Thank you for all of your valued contributions.
In my humbling opinion, Iranian armed drones or medium range missiles acting on good humint should take out a Barzani clan gathering and rid the area of these venomous vipers. But then again, perhaps they are keeping their powder dry because the Iraqi Shia have yet fully to wake up to the fact that Bob is NOT their uncle, and Uncle $cam is a pernicious $cumbag. Nuff Sed.

No major breakthrough news on the doubayat gas field cauldron where ash Shammas is located. The 3 latest confirmed information were: 1) ISIS offensive toward central Homs is gone for good, zero pressure at the moment. 2) The Palmyra-Dez highway is fully back to normal. 3) Humaymah which was under tremendous pressure for close to 3 weeks has calm down completely, showing ISIS loss of steam in the whole desert area. Looking at the macro picture, with recent severe losses in Mayadin, ISIS must rethink their defensive perimeter and the Doubayat cauldron losses completely its importance to the near future.… Read more »

Here’s a quote from Alexander over at SST There is no race to Al Bukamal, but not because there is an agreement SDF/SAA but because SDF has no enough manpower to do it. I was wondering why SAA didn’t cross Euphrat in DeZ ” in force ” to prevent SDF to conquer oil fields. The only reason is that SAA has good intel about SDF capabilities and probably intel guys inside SDF. They have reached the conclusion that SDF are not able to keep all territories conquered. As soon as SAA will have cleaned and combed western Euphrat bank up… Read more »

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.

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).

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!
Pantsir can engage and destroy projectiles.

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.

Jonas

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.
Here are a few articles with more detailed info:

If only all the good people knew what happened and is continuing to happen in Syria.

…a welcome respite from the msm lies and disinformation which get excreted on a daily basis.

The MSM has lost all credibility. People are more and more aware that it is totally controlled by the inverted fascists (ie corporate control of the government rather than government control of the corporate, but in the end corporate and government as one). The root of this awareness is the internet. Belatedly, TPTB now understand their mistake and are trying to shut it down: https://youtu.be/l-zHWXvafgM?t=1004

Some minor points: – Bridge in DeZ was built mainly to allow technical and resupply to cross Euphrat. It was necessary to complete Dez encirclement. – SAA is now able to use Mayadeen bridge. it’s broken at each end but can be repaired very fast using T72 MTU AVLB or something akin. – There is no race to Al Bukamal, but not because there is an agreement SDF/SAA but because SDF has no enough manpower to do it. I was wondering why SAA didn’t cross Euphrat in DeZ ” in force ” to prevent SDF to conquer oil fields. The… Read more »

Looking at the Map, SDF is already crossing the Kharbul river. You may be right but the Anglo-Zionists are planning as well [spoiler title=” “]and might bring infantry troops to help SDF. I wish SAA will speed and take over the Eastern side before moving south to Bukamal.

“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”

ISIS situation inside Deir ez Zour city has shifted from bad to worst, their morale is non existent plus the lack of supplies and ammo are taking a huge toll, as mentioned few times already. Yesterday and today ISIS saw the SAA and allies complete the encirclement of the city from the left bank with the liberation of al Husayniyah and the Hawijat Kati` Island which shared shores with friendly part of Deir ez Zour. Interesting to note that SDF fanboys have been sharing this area under SDF for almost a month. Today, not confirmed yet but certainly tomorrow, all… Read more »

What did I say about the Kurds? Nothing to worry about. They will be sold out by the us. We said this here at Syrper as soon as the “SDF” was announced. We knew it and sadly the Kurds knew it too. What suckers!

Some info on what to come after Mayadin liberation: 1) PMU in Iraq has met for a all out offensive to the Syrian border, both in Nineveh and Anbar Province, this is indeed the last plan to eliminate ISIS from Iraq and hopefully, as previously shared, in full and completely coordination with the SAA, Russia, Iran and Hizballah, the C4+1 is working around the clock to bring ISIS to its final defeat as soon as possible, may early 2018 2) TF has increased the defensive forces around southern Mayadin and helped to clear Mahassan pocket north of it.

There is absolutely no ways US can win a conventional war against Iran.
You can’t invade a country that is able to mobilize 1 million soldiers, the 2 first months and 2 million after.
War is mainly about men, not technology.

I agree, but that won’t prevent the Donald from starting one. In addition, both the US and Israel have “unconventional” weapons. If things are wrapped up quickly, the window to generate an “incident” will be smaller.

As of Iraq, what I have to say is WELL DONE ISF and allies, hell of a great execution in liberating Kirkuk and bring it back to Iraq. 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. After 09/25 referendum, KRG has declared its “passion” to Israel, clearly sending downwards any possibility for KRG… Read more »

Wow that move to seal the Syrian-Iraqi border where the US regularly uses to traffic weapons and supplies to the YPG from Iraq would be a big blow to the hands feeding the YPG. I’m sure Turkey and Iraq see here on the same page. It will effectively split Syrian and Iraqi Kurdish regions. Game changer. Talk about the tables turning.

Canthama, what a blessing it would be if all you suggest comes true! It would also be a blessing for Syrian Kurds, for I believe Assad and the Damascus government in general are truly committed to equal rights for all and citizenship for non-Arabs. In the past, there has been ruthless treatment of political actors, but I believe equal treatment for non-political members of minority groups. I believe that was the case in Iraq under Saddam as well. The leadership thought ruthlessness necessary due to the ideology and activities/methods of such groups as the Muslim Brotherhood and its counterparts in… Read more »

Chevi, no doubt the coalition of killing/evil will react, but now they are a sort of speechless and despair, but the payback is coming from them as a form of more evil and treachery. Shoigun was in Israel the past 2 days and Israel bombed Syria in that attempt to show they dominate the Lebanese air space, that was a clear message of despair and weakness., but on the other hand Syria is showing it has reached a point of no return from its relationship with Israel. War is coming involving the settler’s State and won’t be easy for them… Read more »

One strong possibility is that NATO mend its relations with Turkey in order to keep one of the last front (Idlib) alive.
But I have the feeling that Putin will pressure Syria to withold any offensive against the settler’s State, who will try to delegate the task of attacking Iran/Syria/Russia to its vassals.

Well folks, the ISF and PMU are already rolling into Sinjar, the capital is 100% under the Iraq Government control and forces are advancing toward Rabia, the main NW border crossing between Syria and Iraq. 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. There is, of course, the fact that the PKK has deep connections with YPG and not necessary with the KDP,… Read more »

The PKK were opportunistic, they dont care about other minorities. They needed a way to get off the US terror list and get US weapons. They would not have moved if they did not take the other side of the KDP. Now we can nclearely see the PKK are no better than the KDP or any other kurd.

Basically, as of now most of NW Iraq is under the Iraq Government control, few sites yet to be secured like Rabia border crossing with Syria and the mighty Mosul Dam.

Telskuf (Tesqopa) reported under the ISF control meaning Turkish-KRG military “training” camp in Batnaya is semi encircled by the ISF forces from north, west and south of it. Interesting development.

Rabiah border crossing between Syria and Iraq is now under Iraq Government control. This the end of land continuity between KRG and northern Syria occupied by SDF. Can not underestimate the strategic impact of this event in the near future for Syria….less smuggling weapons, US army free transit between the two countries, kurdish mercenaries in Syria will have to be air lifted and no more through Syria-Iraq border, all in one this is a hell of game changer for Syraq battle field and unity.

Why don’t the Russians give Syria some real AA systems that can actually defend Syria? And if they don’t, why not get them from China? What is going on? Israel is making the Syrian look like suckers. What good is an AA system if it cant shoot down a plane and gets destroyed in return? Is this the best that the defense industry has to offer’/

jfb

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.
