Russia has humiliated the United States again. US forces are in Syria for “economic assets,” said Russian officials. They are not there to fight terrorism or to establish peace in the region. No, they are there to create trouble, declared Russian officials. And they’ve got the evidence to prove it:
“The MoD was referring to an incident which took place on Tuesday in Deir Ez-Zor province, as a Syrian militia unit was moving against a “sleeper cell” of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS). The operation was prompted by a surge in shelling of the positions of Syrian government forces in the area over the past few days, attributed to the covert activities of IS terrorists, the ministry said in a statement on Thursday.
Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has recently said:
“It’s very likely that the Americans have taken a course of dividing the country. They just gave up their assurances, given to us, that the only goal of their presence in Syria – without an invitation of the legitimate government – was to defeat Islamic State and the terrorists.
“Now, they are saying that they will keep their presence until they make sure a steady process of a political settlement in Syria starts, which will result in regime change.”
So the prevailing vision that the United States is in Syria to fight terrorist cells is no longer politically viable. Political whores and Zionist marionettes like Nikki Haley may want to start looking for a different job. Lavrov continued to say:
“It’s very likely that the Americans have taken a course of dividing the country. They just gave up their assurances, given to us, that the only goal of their presence in Syria – without an invitation of the legitimate government – was to defeat Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) and the terrorists.”
Russian officials have also made it clear that US presence in Syria is completely “illegal” and that “Nobody invited them there.” If nobody invited them, then who gave sent them the invitation card?
You guess it: the state of Israel. Here is something that should keep you laughing. Back in 2013, Breitbart.com, the Zionist outlet which never ceases to perpetuate Israeli propaganda, was lamenting that US tax payers needed to get angry because the US government was spending too much money on Syrian aid.
The interesting thing is that Breitbart.com never attacked the real cause of the problem in the first place, namely, the Israeli regime is pushing America into one disaster after another in the Middle East! If you still think that this is not so, then let’s bring in some figures, which by the way are three years old:
“The Department of Defense has spent more than $2.7 billion—some $9 million per day—since the United States began operations against the so-called Islamic State last August. To put that in perspective, the DOD is on pace to spend a little more than $14 million per day to combat ISIS in fiscal year 2015. That’s minuscule compared to the roughly $187 million the Defense Department is still spending on the Iraq War each day.”
The state of Israel is culpable. And whenever that diabolical state seeks to make a political move in the Middle East, you can be sure that trouble will inexorably ensue. Russia certainly gets the United States by the balls, but Russia must know that the United States is just a puppet of the Israeli regime. Russia needs to move the political debate forward by calling out Israel.
