To seek peace in Syria, US has to deal with Russia



By Jim Emerson, staff writer
The Obama administration is getting desperate and is making what might be its final offer to Moscow to end the hostilities in Syria. Obama is calling for enhanced intelligence and military cooperation with Russia against the Islamic State and other extremist groups in the nation. Obama is also calling for President Bashar al-Assad and the Russians to honor a UN brokered ceasefire with U.S.-supported rebel groups which includes Assad’s removal from power.
Secretary of State John Kerry met with Russia's top diplomat to discuss Syria's civil war and Assad's future. Apparently desperate for a Nobel Peace Prize, Kerry is trying to “resuscitate the cessation of hostilities” and get Russia to end its attacks on U.S. backed rebels. The big obstacle to any agreement involves the future of Bashar al-Assad, as the Russians are not interested in removing him from power and having him replaced by a Muslim Brotherhood puppet regime. Obama, of course, has been pleased to practice that pro-terror diplomacy throughout the Middle East.

Secretary Kerry will fail as long he insists on ushering Assad out of power.  The ceasefire will fail as long as al-Qaeda and ISIS are operating in a Syrian war in which the lack of uniforms makes it difficult to tell the rebels from the terrorists. Peace will only come to Syria when one of the factions kills off all of the others.  Diplomacy is a poor countermeasure against the Islamic State and al-Qaida, especially when Humanitarian aid deliveries to rebel held areas are sporadic and grossly inefficient. It’s likely that such supplies are being looted by tribal and terrorist groups.

Opposition
The Obama administration sent a proposal to Russian President Vladimir Putin that would mandate the U.S. Military share Intelligence and friendly forces in Syria with the Russians. In exchange Russia would halt attacks against U.S.-supported rebels
The Pentagon opposes the Obama Administration’s plan to strengthen military cooperation between the United States and Russia in the fight against ISIS in Syria.  It’s likely the opposition of Pentagon officials is driven by Russian attacks against U.S.-backed rebel forces. Russia is not getting any help to locate and fight Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s arm in Syria. The Pentagon hasn’t been providing the location of U.S. supported rebels to the Russians, leaving the rebels at the mercy of the Russian coalition. Another sticking point involves a Russian attack helicopter shot down with a US missile by ISIS fighters near the city of Palmyra. The Russian military claim that the helicopter was shot down with an American TOW anti-tank missile.
A Pentagon official told the Daily Beast that the Defense Department is “already attempting to constrain coordination efforts and the amount of intelligence shared between Washington and Moscow.” Pentagon officials do not trust the Russian to honor any agreement with the Obama administration. In any event, it’s likely the disagreement is routed in the State Department since Russia’s goal is to maintain the Bashar al-Assad’s Regime whereas Obama wants to remove him.  Russia is well aware of what happened in Egypt, Libya and Yemen during the Arab Spring and does not intend to lose its military in the region.
What Does Syria Think?

Syria's President al-Assad accused the Obama Administration of not being serious about defeating ISIS. In his view only the Russians are interested in destroying ISIS in which case al-Assad would reclaim any captured Syrian territory “within months.” Assad told NBC “the US did not have the same determination as the Russians to defeat ISIS.”  Assad prefers working with Russia because President Vladimir Putin hasn’t demanded that he step down and is not making demands of him in his war against terrorism.  President Assad is confident that the Russians will not accept any deals with Secretary of State John Kerry that would call for his removal.
The future of Syria will be decided by its own people; that is, the ones who remain as opposed to refugees who cut and run.

  1. The banksters need a war desperately right now. They’ve tried so hard in Syria and it just hasn’t worked. Now they’ve got crazy Trump actually saying we should stay out of the Middle East and focus on our own problems, and people are listening… What’s a self-respecting globalist financier to do?

    Without the US military killing people and breaking things, there is no future growth path for them. So they send their puppets like Kasich and Romney out to talk up the fight against “evil” and threaten Russia and China, hoping to fool those dumb white ‘Murkins one more time into sending their sons off to die for God and Country and Goldman Sachs.

    The IMF is in bed with the Turks, Saudis and NATO, they are worried about a Trump audit of the Federal Reserve… and about Trump and Putin teaming up to destroy them once and for all… Trump is a vote for peace, and peace does not make money for the weapon industry. The pseudo secular media and their globalist masters profit from destabilization.

    When it comes to figuring out the DC Cartel, you need to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. Sodom Hussein Obama could not get Congressional support for an invasion of Syria. If he could, he would...

    Puzzle piece number 1. Why were we being told about these 51 State Department dissenters ? Obviously because Obama’s State Department wants us to be told.

    Puzzle piece number 2. Why was this story being pushed as the Saudi Prince who would be king is visited with Obama ? Sauds want Assad gone so an oil pipeline can be built. Russians have stated that attacking Assad means war. Why start war with Russia ?

    Puzzle piece number 3. Hillary still controls the State Department. Or at least her people are still there. Russia was on the verge of releasing the emails they hacked before Hillary deleted them. The oil pipeline is what drives the Sauds and Qataris. Retaining control of US foriegn policy is what drives Hillary’s flying monkeys. Along with the millions the Saudis and Goldman Sachs have paid her.

  2. The U.S. State Dept. has been infested with communists since WW1 and Woodrow Wilson, they tried to steal the Russian elections for their comrades in the Russian Communist Party through non-profit n.g.o.s… just like at home in America…

    But Vladimir Putin beat them, so they launched a fággot jihad against the Russian Orthodox church over the punk rock band and the Olympics (something Bítch Romney stupidly piled onto)… Miss neo-kabbalah lesbian Madonna, now rumored to be a Muslim convert, was flown in to agitate while Hillary was on a world-wide gay pride tour.

    When the Iron Curtain came down the Bolsheviks all fled to the other side because they knew what the Russians would do to them after 100 years of communism.

    The best thing about Russia getting Crimea back… Catherine the Great took it from the Turks…

    What happened right after Russia retook Crimea? The Russian FSB searched all the Turks living there… Why? Because NATO sponsors Islamist terrorism when it suits them to.

    Albanian Muslims operate human slaughterhouses in Kosovo where they rip out the organs of Christians to sell to Turkey and Saudi Arabia… How is Hillary Clinton’s “reset button” working out for America, comrades?

  3. The EUSSR needed Libya’s oil, but Muammar Gadaffi decided he wanted gold instead of worthless fiat currency from the EUSSR.

    What was the first thing NATO did when Gaddafi was deposed besides stealing all of Libya’s gold? Form a new government? NOPE, they formed a new Libyan national bank. Now, why would they do that? Because even if Muammar was deposed, he and his heirs would still be the sole proprietors!

    While Leon Puñettas was so busy with gay pride celebrations at the Pentagon, three Navy Seals and a U.S. ambassador were murdered, all because everyone was being so fúcking gay.

    Like with the nonsense in Syria, the U.S. State Department armed terrorist rebels to get rid of Gadaffi, the same ones that killed Ambassador Stevens and stole weapons from that secret armory in the basement… It was easy to dispose of the hated Muammar Gaddafi, but Bashar al Assad has friends…

    Syria and Ukraine are the same scenario as Serbia… NATO bombed Serbia so the IMF could make loans for rebuilding and get control of Serbian iridium assets.

    Мамоне и большевизм являются еврейские сводные сестры. Еврейские банкиры наводнили Европу с мусульманами и Америку с третьего мира мусора.
