US-Russian showdown is looming in the horizon after the arrival of 250 US special operations forces to Hasakeh, Syria, and the number is believed to reach 500 in the coming days.

European Department for Security and Information Secretary General Haissam Bou Said Divulged that US special operations forces dispatched to Rumelan, province of Hasakeh, in Syria were tasked with “preparing for a ground invasion if and when the truce fails.”

US officials have openly spoken about plan B and said “Syrian army will be banned from realizing a complete victory, and the US will continue supporting the moderate opposition.”

The US will rely on its military bases in Incerlik, Turkey and al Anabar, Iraq to combine a military coalition under the umbrella of the NATO if plan B relating to the federal affairs is not being implemented.

Turkey want to seize the border town of Manbij in Aleppo to guarantee that ISIS can move easily in and out of Syria. Turkey have also ambitions to seize the city of Mosel in Iraq.

The Pentagon sent more troops and military experts to Iraq under the pretext of disallowing ISIS to win more territories and training the Iraqi military. However, the US final aim is questionable.

However, the second task will be a formation of a pre-emptive military coalition to confront the Syrian army, Iran and Russia if plan B is not being translated into three federal cantons in Syria.” Of course, this vision is supported by Israel which is backing a Kurdish autonomy in Iraq and Syria, and want the Middle East to be divided into sectarian and ethnical states.

Syrian sources say “the US is heavily nvesting in the Kurdish issue, but ultimately, the Kurds will not have an independent state in Syria, because the neighboring countries will not endorse such a notion.” But, the question is who will fight the Kurds who already imposed a de facto policy on the ground in North-East Syria?

A Russian source told VT that “Russia will not allow dismembering Syria by force, and it is impossible to solve the internal problems by external aggression.”

“the Russian main goals are to destroy ISIL, strengthen the Syrian army and to emasculate the armed opposition. Then, an effective dialogue can launched between the Syrians that can be frank and honest,” the source said.

“Russia will protect the free will of the Syrian people, but will not decide their future. Alternatives to President Bashar al Assad do not exist today, and the problem of 40 million Kurds in the Middle East must be solved,” the source added.

“Russia will force the US to act for the good of Syria and the entire Middle East. Previous years have proven cannot single-handedly command the world, and Washington will not risk a direct confrontation with Moscow in Syria,” the source concluded.

Finally, Syria, the cradle of Christian, Muslim, and other ancient civilization will not be left alone. Catholic and orthodox leaders will meet to prevent the collapse of Syria, which represents the column of light, and Saint George is the slogan of the Russian air force.
