BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – Negotiations between the Syrian government and US-backed Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) have gone sour after several weeks of meetings in Qamishli City and Damascus.

According to the SDC’s Spokesperson Amjad ‘Othman, the negotiations with Damascus did not stop because of US pressure, but rather the limited path set by the government, which was not enough to achieve any progress.

“Negotiations with Damascus did not stop because of US pressure but the limited path set by the regime which was not enough to achieve any progress. The U.S is an important partner in the fight against terrorism and its role will be significant in the future of any political…” he tweeted yesterday.

“Going to Damascus was an independent decision and we are still open to continue the dialogue with Damascus,” he added.

The SDC is the political wing of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF); they operate primarily in northern Syria, including the Al-Raqqa and Al-Hasakah provinces.

.” The U.S is an important partner in the fight against terrorism and its role will be significant in the future of any political…” he tweeted yesterday. Just about says it all really. It is not a war against terrorism it is a war OF terrorism on the states of many countries in the ME and by proxy the rest of the world. America is the main sponsor of this terrorism, whose mercenaries are logistically supplied and protected by the no1 terrorist state in the world Israel, the only state to be born as the result of terrorist actions ever.… Read more »

I doubt Israel’s economy is able to support the alleged $137bln spent in the mercenaries and jihadists, especially since it’s not their interest at all to end with a neighbouring country ruled by creeps worst than Hamas.

The state of Israel wasn’t created by terrorists, it was a total shïthole and the Balfour declaration was the founding act, the process to independence from the UK took 31 years.

There was peace as long as the Mid-East were Brit or French mandates. As soon as these pulled out…
Nobody forced the new born Arab-League to attack Israel in 1948 and working at the destruction of this state since…

US actions on the Mid-East may be dubious, and I agree about it, nevertheless, aboutn 90% of war-related death in the Middle-East since 1948 have NO relations to the Yankees. Actually, tribal rivalries, poverty, generalised corruption and religious frenzy are way near tenfold damaging than any US action, as dubious these might be. The Mid-East is a mess since the introduction of Islam. The societal “model” it carries is directly linked to the ME bloodsheds. When all this was under Ottoman rule for centuries, it never prevented large scales massacres, ethnic cleansings and genocides and it’s like this since the… Read more »

What a load of c**p, this has the US dirty fingers all over it. In any case would you expect anything less from this treasonous group.

And what should them expect from a Syrian govt. which, instead of fighting for the Kurdish population or at least ding its duty by evacuating them, as it’s said in the Hague Convention Syria signed, simply pulled out when Kurds were under jihadists attacks, considering the cockroaches would slaughter this minority, giving a “final solution” to the “Kurdish problem”?
One can question who is treasonous!

The Kurds of the SDC show that they don’t have at all political acumen , they see not further than the end of their noses. Siding with the US isolates them from the ME , makes them It is foreign implants. The US presence is temporary in Syria , probably is not going to outlast the weak current President , led by the nose by the Zio-neocons. But how ”democratic” is the SDC, whom they represent??
