On Monday, August 22nd, the United States government — which demands the overthrow of the internationally-recognized-as-legal government of Syria — officially announced that America’s military forces in Syria will continue to occupy Syrian land, no matter what the Syrian government says, and will shoot down any Syrian planes that fly over U.S. forces there and that attack them.

As reported on Monday by Al-Masdar News:

The Pentagon has announced that the USA is ready to down Syrian and Russian planes that they claim threaten American advisers who by international law are illegally operating in northern Syria.

On Friday, Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis claimed that US jets attempted to intercept Syrian planes to protect the American advisers operating illegally with Kurdish forces in Syria after Syrian government jets bombed areas of Hasakah when Kurdish police began an aggression against the National Defense Force.

On Monday, another Pentagon spokesman, Peter Cook, said, “We would continue to advise the Syrian regime to steer clear of those areas.”

“We are going to defend our people on the ground, and do what we need to defend them,” Cook told reporters.

This means that the U.S. government will not allow the Syrian government to expel or otherwise eliminate U.S. forces in Syria. The Syrian government never invited U.S. forces into Syria, but the U.S. now officially dares the Syrian government to assert its sovereignty over the areas where America’s troops are located.

Al-Masdar continued:

When pushed further about Russia, Cook made it clear that the US would make the same aggression against Russian jets who are operating legally with the Syrian government’s approval and coordination.

“If they threaten US forces, we always have the right to defend our forces,” Cook said.

This means that the U.S. not only is at war against the legitimate government of Syria, but that the U.S. government will also be at war against Russia if Russian forces (which the Syrian government did invite into Syria) defends Syrian forces from attacks in Syria by U.S. forces — forces that are illegally there.

These U.S. forces number only 300, of whom 250 were sent to Syria on April 24th to serve as advisors to other illegal military forces in Syria.

The vast majority of the illegal military forces in Syria are jihadists who had been hired by the Saudi government and the Qatari government, and supplied with U.S. weapons, to overthrow the Syrian government. Most of the other illegal forces in Syria are Kurdish forces, supported by the U.S. government to break Syria apart so as to create a separate Kurdish state in the majority-Kurdish far north-eastern tip of Syria.

The primary U.S. goal in Syria is to overthrow the Syrian government, which is led by the Baath Party, Syria’s secular Party. Many Arabs insist upon Sharia, or Islamic law, but Syria’s Arabs are an exception; the Baath Party is and has always been supported by the majority of the Syrian people, including by most of Syria’s Arabs. Most Syrians are strongly opposed to Sharia law. Syria is the most secular nation in the Middle East.

For example, when Western-sponsored polls were taken in Syria, after the start in 2011 of the importation of jihadists into Syria, those polls showed that 55% of Syrians want Bashar al-Assad (the current leader of the Baath Party) to remain as Syria’s President, and “82% agree ‘IS [Islamic State] is US and foreign made group’.” Furthermore, only “22% agree ‘IS is a positive influence’,” and that 22% was the lowest level of support shown by Syrians for any of the presented statements, except for, “21% agree ‘Prefer life now than under Assad’” — meaning that Syrians believe that things were better before the U.S.-sponsored jihadists entered Syria to overthrow Assad.

ALSO READ  In pictures: Syrian Army seizes large weapons cache in former ISIS capital

Clearly, when “82% agree ‘IS [Islamic State] is US and foreign made group’,” very few people in Syria support the 300 U.S. forces there. Not only is the U.S. an invader, but it (and especially the forces that the U.S. supports in Syria — most especially the jihadists, who are the vast majority of these forces) made life far worse (and far shorter) for virtually all Syrians.

Furthermore, that same poll found: “70% agree ‘Oppose pision of country’.” Consequently, the Kurdish separatists are likewise opposed by the vast majority of Syrians.

The Syrian government, from now on, is in the uncomfortable position of having invaders on its territory, and of being warned that one of them — the U.S. — will be fully at war against Syria if Syria tries to expel them.

Russia too is now under warning from the United States, that, if Russia, an ally of Syria, takes any action to expel or kill any of the U.S. invaders in Syria, then the U.S. will also be at war against Russia.

The U.S. government is now also daring the Russian government. Perhaps the U.S. strategy here is to force Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin, either to back down, and abandon its Syrian ally, or else to launch a nuclear strike against the United States. If Putin backs down, that would greatly diminish his support from the Russian people, which is above 80% in all polls, including Western-sponsored ones. Perhaps this is the strategy of U.S. President Barack Obama, to drive Vladimir Putin out of office — something that might occur if the U.S. drives Bashar al-Assad out of office.

As Seymour Hersh reported, on 7 January 2016, “the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, then [in the summer of 2013] led by General Martin Dempsey, forecast that the fall of the Assad regime would lead to chaos and, potentially, to Syria’s takeover by jihadi extremists, much as was then happening in Libya,” and so Dempsey quit, and Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, director of the DIA between 2012 and 2014, was fired over the matter. “The DIA’s reporting, he [Flynn] said, ‘got enormous pushback’ from the Obama administration. ‘I felt that they did not want to hear the truth.’”

Flynn is now a foreign-affairs advisor to the Republican Presidential candidate, Donald Trump, who is being criticized by the Democratic Presidential candidate, for being soft on Russia and insufficiently devoted to the U.S. goal of overthrowing Assad.

As long there is hate there’ll be no peace. You’re illogical : if you’re considering they’re about to fuck all the population up and you hate everyone in the country, you should be happy. Now you don’t seem to understand that there are 52 states (if you count UK) and each one has it’s own laws and police, the FBI being there only for federal crimes. Many EU country have militarized police and how funny, you may prefer be in contact with Gendarmerie in France or Carabinieris in Italy than with the cops, although, it depends for what and here… Read more »

Kurd project is not only backed by the US. It’s the total interest of BOTH Russia and EU that the kurds have their country and even a strong country.

I have posted requests for people to pray to God to severely discipline and punish – to even take the lives of those who will not positively respond to His discipline/punishment –  every political figure of each country who is responsible for their country’s ongoing involvement in destroying innocent Syrian lives by funding, training, arming, giving intelligence to the terrorists operating in Syria. One said such a prayer was “hate-filled” and like the Takfiris. I disagree 100 PERCENT. It is LOVE FILLED.

While I will agree that US foreign policy under Obama is a mess, Syria complaining about international law is to rich. They ran Lebanon like a private fiefdom, killing anyone who was a threat, helped support Hezbollah there which prevents the legal government there from running the country. Not to mention funneling Islamic Jihadist into Iraq during the US occupation, Attacking Israel, murdering it’s own people. Now all that being said, we need the regime to hold on to prevent a massacre of the Alwaite by the Jihadists, hopefully the regime accepts a “Federalized Syrian Kurdish regime” which really means… Read more »

You are actually right for some aspects. In the past Syrian government had its guilts, but since 2011 it ran a series of reforms to share the Power with all minorities. It even gave amnesty to the first jihadis fighters in 2012 and assad presidency was confirmed with two elections in the range of 3 ysars

Colin Parkinson

Your correct, the irony is that he was easing up to prevent the Arab spring fever from taking off. The problem is that that what happens is that the moderates are rarely properly organized and suffer the most during the government backlash, whereas the Muslim extremists generally have a robust organization built into or around the Mosques and Islamic organization. So they survive and eventually the moderates get crushed between the regime and the extremists. Really he needed to build the political infrastructure a decade ago at the municipal level and then provincial and then allow some federal opposition. This… Read more »

The moderates were not crushed between : they found themselves unemployed so they either joined SAA or SDF except if they were really money addicts then they joined shithadists as Qaedans are fuelled with saudi/qatari money and the daeshbags with oil smuggling although it has seriously shrank but for a while, they could grow in numbers simply by paying mercenaries more than the others… Yeeep, you forgot a BIG point : there are a HUGE number of mercenaries!

Colin, the view of sectarianism in Syria you have is totally wrong! Most of the SAA militaries and especially generals are sunnis! The only ones in Syria considering sectarian issues are the shithadists! It’s a secular state!

It’s the contrary of the Lincoln doctrine with is to talking slowly and having a big stick, it’s more talking loud and acting in ultra low intensity : would they imply themselves against Da’ish as was the aerial campaign in Iraq in 2003 and I don’t give 2 weeks of survival to Da’ish…

Eric’s analysis is 100% correct. However he has nothing to say about persecution of christian minorities in Syria and Assad role in protecting them because of his open hatred for any form of religion irrespective of what it stands for. His anti-religious sentiment is very dangerous because it denies the most basic human right.

Well, I consider the title a little exaggerated : 300 military advisors is not what I’d call an invasion or we should say that Europe is invaded by Syrians as they’re about 135000 just in my country 😉 Now, they are polite : they say that if they are threatened, they would respond to the threat… Some other wouldn’t issue such warning, they’d just have shot down syrian Su-24, ask Erdogan about it! Now, other point : Kurdish people gained their autonomy when Syrian govt let them down as easy prey for Da’ish. Rojava is already a de facto country… Read more »

Not 10M but 3 to 3.5M. And it’s simply because there is a war and if there’s a war in a country and you can flea, what d’ya think you’ll do? Now, let’s be practical : the internally displaced persons all flee to government held areas : 85% of the remaining 20M Syrians moved to these zones OR to Kurdistan, which BTW if held by the govt of Rojava so it seems that except the families of the shithadists, nobody seems very delighted to be under Quaeda’s rule!

Soon Turkey will be partitioned as well and the Kurds will have reclaimed their homeland. Armenian borders will expand west to incorporate their land in Turkey.
Peace will reign in the middle east as Israel departs the Golan Heights and recognizes Palestine.
Those yankees are such clever people and they never put a foot wrong.
Will China send a military and air force contingent to assist Assad to be rid of ISIS?
