(TASS) The refusal of a diplomatic settlement in Syria may result in a full-scale war which will lead to “tectonic shifts” in the whole region, Russian Foreign Ministry’s official spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in the “Right To Know” program on TVTs channel.

“Lobby in US is now really muddying the waters and not allowing to reach an agreement,” Zakharova said.

“There logic is — ‘why do we need diplomacy, UN, talks, international law, why do we need any commitments on the international arena, when there is power and the right of a powerful one, and there are our own national laws which may stand above other laws and be strengthened by methods of resolving a problem by power. We already know this logic, there is nothing new about it. It usually ends with one thing — a full-scale war,” she added.

The spokeswoman declined to answer the question on Russia’s possible reaction in case the United States uses force against Syria.

“I cannot speculate on what will happen if… This is the task of experts. May task is to explain why it is so important to stay in the framework of the agreements,” she said. “If US starts a direct aggression against Damascus and the Syrian army, this will lead to scary tectonic shifts not only on the territory of Syria, but in the whole region as well,” she noted.

US State Secretary John Kerry earlier said that Washington may freeze cooperation on Syria with Moscow.

The problem is Russia negotiates with America, but Israel is tail that wags the dog.

The problem with you say is that, except in conspiracy-fans minds, Israel has clearly nothing to do in this story, in fact, the s**t KSA, Qatar and Turkey with US in the shadows are doing in Syria is not really in Israeli’s interests. This is a conflict between Iran and KSA+Turkey

yes. The US clearly want a major war. Their economy is close to collapse and they are losing on the ground in Syria.

Bad analysis : their economy is nowhere near to collapse, in fact, they even perceive more interest from their abroad investments than the interests they should pay on the US debts, they don’t rely anymore on oil import and with both Iran and daesh doing a great scarecrow job in the ME, weapons sales are awesome and they’re nowhere near to put boots again in the region, in fact, they mostly pull out of the ME and will only do containment in the future, regional powers will have to deal with their problems, at least on the ground. Now, there… Read more »

Audio Reveals What John Kerry Told Syrians Behind Closed Doors http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/09/30/world/middleeast/100000004683024.app.html => I fact, Kerry would like the US to go in in a military way but… They are only 3 or 4 in this case in the administration and congress is nowhere likely to vote in this way and a public tired of war… “He also said any further American effort to arm rebels or join the fight could backfire.” => Which go totally in the way of my analysis. In other terms, high time to settle things between Syrian govt and the Kurds in the way of a… Read more »

In fact, he doesn’t gives a f**k thus displeasing Kerry a lot as Kerry is a hawk with warmongering tendencies…

US DoS is simply playing poker-bluff : they’re simply unable to influence the events. The only risk is an arab action led by KSA and, IMHO, it would be suicidal, something like all their desalination plants destroyed for a beginning or all their navy and airbases getting seriously hit which, considering the Yemen crisis would simply be a disaster (the desalination plants too).
