A Strategic Evaluation Of The American Scheme About Syria


…by Prof. Imad Fawzi Shueibi for Veterans Today

The American cunningly wants to deprive Syria of its geopolitical value by establishing a buffer zone in the north, thus, isolating Syria from Turkey and Europe; usurping the eastern northern region, the eastern region and the southern regions to turn Syria into an isolated country (like Lebanon); i.e., to isolate it geopolitically from Europe and Asia.

In addition, it attempts to establish a Kurdish confederation annexed to what it had laid hands on in the eastern north, eastern, eastern south and southern regions, thus, isolating Syria from Israel and the whole Palestinian Cause. All this will end the exceptional and extraordinary geographical value of Syria which has been the struggle arena and an extraordinary value with its presence in the whole region.

The seismic value of Syria lies in that it is a crisscrossing region between Asia, Europe and Africa. Once Palestine was extracted, it became isolated from Africa. Today, they want to isolate Syria from Europe (North) and Asia (East). Syria is the only access point that links between the whole Asian Mainland and the Mediterranean.

With the takeover of its eastern region, Syrian is going to lose its geopolitical peculiarity and turn into a mere peninsula with one access to the sea, exactly like Lebanon, but this is going to be a deformation of the first attempt to deprive Syria of its eastern region in 1924.

With the takeover of Dara’a, Sweida, and parts of Qunaitera, Syria would be distanced completely from the Palestinian Cause, and, accordingly, from any justification of power ever since its independence in 1946.

There is an apparent British weight and a French shadow in this scheme that appears to be designed with strategic deliberation for the first time ever since the war has started taking into consideration that the previous stages were characterized of strategic imbalance while this (plot) is a real geopolitical one. This is the translation of the of what dr prof imad said:

  1. Prof. Imad Fawzi Shueibi: Thank you for your very good analysis of the current situation in Syria.

    However, Russia, Iran, Hezbollah & Iraq (and Syria too) will not allow Syria to be isolated from Mideast or from the world. The Syria/Russia-led coalition is is WINNING against IS/Daesh & al-Qaeda/al-Nusra terrorists (despite not-so-covert support by Saudis, U.S., Bibi/Israel, Erdogan/Turks, Qatar & others).

    After Iraqi leaders force U.S. military to stop delaying recapture of Mosul etc. in Iraq, many troops & much military equipment can be redirected against IS/Daesh & al-Qaeda/al-Nusra terrorists in Syria. Given this fact, you can now see the reasons for U.S. military delays — which are NOT due to incompetence.

    It’s only a matter of time… a short time. Peace may not yet quite be ‘at hand’; but it’s close…

    • Jordanian F16s just downed a Syrian or Russian drone in Syria — but near the Jordan/Syria border. But Syria is still striking al-Qaeda/al-Nusra targets near the Jordan border, where the al-Qaeda/al-Nusra terrorists thought that they might be safe… NOT.

      Bibi, U.S., Jordan & others are looking for Syria, Iran or Russia to make a mistake, but Syria, Iran & Russia are smarter than that. What may happen next is for Jordanian F16s to down a Syrian military jet firing on al-Qaeda/al-Nusra positions (in Syria, but close to the border). Bibi & Co. (and U.S.) might be looking for Syrians to do stupid stuff (e.g., fire on the build-up of troops/tanks). Of course, this might be sufficient provocation for U.S. & Jordanian troops & tanks to invade Syria.

      IF Russians are prepared to immediately down the Jordanian F16, then this would be a proportionate counter-strike (IF Russians & Syrians can immediately PROVE what happened)… Better yet, Russians can publicly warn Jordan of Russia’s intent to down any Jordanian F16 that downs a Syrian jet in Syria.

      Turkey played this game with Russia. Russia played it cool, and Erdogan eventually apologized (etc.). Given Trump’s recent stupid stuff in Syria, the above scenario may make some sense…

  2. Sad, but true. And it appears that Russia may have acquiesced to this US scheme. Heaven knows why (exhaustion?). But has Turkey? Given Erdogan’s recent comments regarding US arms to the Kurds, it doesn’t look like it. Ironically, the ‘fly in the ointment’ to US schemes in Syria may come from its NATO ‘partner’ Turkey and not from Russia.
