The Strange Case of Trump’s New ‘Socialist Republic of Northern Syria’

BRD634322

Can there ever be a secular or even Bolshevik state encompassing much of the Middle East? Who is doing it? Is it the real NATO or the new US and Israeli dominated version, the ‘Arab NATO’ that Secretary Pompeo talks about? What is happening is the formation of a new nation inside Syria and Iraq, one based not on Wahhabist beliefs…

America’s Broken Syria Project

BRD63322

A recent altercation between Russian forces and US occupiers in northeastern Syria helped highlight the increasingly tenuous position Washington holds not only in Syria but across the entire Middle East. After attempting to block Russian military vehicles, US forces found themselves being literally plowed out of the way with overwhelming Russian airpower hovering overhead…

US Revamps its North-Syria ‘Steal Oil Mission’

SYR342322

While a US company has secured rights in north Syria to drill and export Syrian oil, stepping up the US president Trump’s policy of ‘protecting the oil’ for the Syrians, this is being followed by a transfer of additional US troops from Iraq to Syria, indicating how the US policies are at the heart of permanently dividing Syria between an ‘oil-rich and oil-starved’ regions…

Western War Propaganda Still Aims at Syria

TRI342222

While US regime change in Syria appears to be a terminal failure, various propaganda ploys used to sell the war continue in the hopes that – at the very least – such ploys can be polished and improved upon when and where the US turns its attention next. One of these ploys includes an ongoing “trial” in Germany against Syrians accused of war…

Washington to Blame for Building Tensions in Syria

SYR43222

Since 2011, when the conflict in Syria kicked off, it has virtually been a game of King of the Hill, involving several power shifts. In part, this is due to the intervention of outside players who helped various sides establish control over Syrian territory. As a result, Syria has become a sort of playground for international forces to strut around, wrestling for the upper hand…

Caesar Act: Protecting or Destroying Syrian ‘Civilians’?

SYR002342

The so-called US “Civilian Protection Act” does everything except “protect” the people of Syria. If anything, it aims, what a draconian law would normally do, to further destroy and strangulate the Syrian economy to make the country’s post-war economic reconstruction and development even more difficult. As the act’s “statement of policy” states…

Why is the US Still Sanctioning Syria?

SYR6745

Chinese media highlighted a recent plea by Beijing to the US to lift sanctions against Syria. China’s CGTN in an article titled, “Chinese envoy asks US to lift unilateral sanctions on Syria,” would report: A Chinese envoy on Tuesday asked the United States to immediately lift unilateral sanctions against Syria. Years of economic blockade have caused tremendous…

UK’s Information Warfare in Syria

TAN323

After their failed military interventions in Vietnam and a number of other countries, the United States and its main ally (as far as invasions and occupations are concerned), Great Britain, made serious changes to their approach by making information warfare one of their key tools or an alternative to military operations, during which propaganda became a crucial means…

In Syria, Washington Moves to Vietnam-Style “Scorched Earth” Policy

SYR3422

It is now clear, not only in the USA but also beyond its borders, that US efforts to quietly oust the Assad regime in Syria have failed. Washington’s original mission of “protecting the civilian population” in Syria quickly turned into “fighting terrorism,” but this, of course, primarily meant engagement with the very same jihadists from Daesh…

Syrian Peace Process Beginning to Look Realistic

7765

Nine years have already passed since the first anti-government protests of Syria’s civil uprising, the so-called “Arab Spring”, organized from overseas by those pulling the strings in the Middle East and North Africa and broken up by the police. This civil uprising phase is said to have marked the beginning of the Syrian Civil War. According to the Spanish online…

US Media Defends Al Qaeda in Syria

HTSSyria

When is a terrorist group not a terrorist group? Apparently when US foreign policy requires it not to be. This is precisely the case regarding Al Qaeda’s Syrian branch – Hayat Tahrir al Sham (HTS) – the most recent rebrand of Jabhat Al Nusra – which currently occupies the northern Syrian governorate of Idlib. The US corporate media has recently attempted…

Syrian Pandora’s Box

SYR34222

The troubled Middle Eastern region is in the throes of war and chaos yet again with blood being spilt, mounting casualties and millions of refugees. This time around, the target happens to be Syria. Its people have been suffering for many years now at the hands of terrorists, generously funded and armed by various external players, particularly by Western nations and monarchies of the Persian…
