The US position on Syria: We will not go away!

The expansion of the US presence in the Syrian Arab Republic is taking place against the background of regular informational throws of the political elites of the West. Continuing the current trend, the US special envoy to combat ISIS in Syria and Iraq, Brett McGerk, presented his vision of the development of the situation, giving Washington the role of the “solver” of the Syrian problems.
On Thursday, the US special envoy stated that Washington does not intend to participate in the process of rebuilding Syria without meeting the demands put forward by it. “We, as a coalition, made it clear that there will be no international assistance to restore areas under the control of the regime (without official permission from the Syrian authorities) without moving the political process forward in a reliable way for a political transition,” the official said. Let’s note, under the “political transition” the American leadership means the resignation of the incumbent President Bashar Assad and holding new elections in the country.
Also, the American representative expressed disagreement with the position of Russia, Iran and a number of other states that declared about the defeat of the militants of the “Islamic State” in the Syrian Arab Republic. At the end of his briefing, the ambassador stressed that the US promotes its own national interests in Syria, which presume the preservation of the American military contingent in the SAR.
Remarkably, a month earlier, Brett McGurk reported on the military successes achieved by the coalition in Syria and Iraq, saying that the fake-caliphate lost more than 95% of the controlled territory. The Special Representative stressed that the defeat of the “Islamic state” became possible thanks to the efforts of Washington and allies from the military-political bloc of NATO and the League of Arab States.
Statements of Mr. McGerk made in a short period, in fact, reflect the two opposite pictures of the situation in Syria: a few weeks after the speech on the victory of the coalition over ISIS, the State Department spokesperson convinces the public that success has not yet been achieved and Washington will need time to consolidate the result.
However, the changeability of the US policy in Syria is reflected not only in statements by official representatives of the State Department, but also in concrete decisions of the administration of the White House and the Pentagon, feeding illusions to take revenge for another failure in the Middle East.
Recall that at the end of last month on the official resource of the command of the operation ” Inherent Resolve” appeared information on the withdrawal of 400 American servicemen of the 1st artillery battalion of the 10th Marine Regiment. Note that information about the arrival of a battalion of servicemen to the point of permanent deployment did not appear, in turn, the Internet is full of reports about the deployment by the United States of new bases and the strengthening of existing military facilities in northern Syria in Ash Shaddadi and in the area of the settlement of Tanfan .
Returning to the speech of Mr. McGerk, the special representative also did not leave this issue without attention, stating the following: “We are in El Tanf and stay there to make sure that ISIS can not return there.” Recall, on the annexed 55-kilometer zone, American instructors train hundreds of militants of the armed opposition every month.
Sources which are close to the situation report that in the future the trained gangs will be used to attack the positions of the Syrian Arab army along the Iraqi border. At the same time, as military analysts note, in the case of the US attempt to implement this scenario, the attack will be carried out from the northern direction, mainly from the territory of the military base of Al-Shaddady in the province of Hasaka.
According to the information of the refugees from the camp of Rajm-es-Salibi (5 kilometers south-east of Ash Shaddad), 750 people are now studying at the American base, 400 of which are terrorists of the ISIS group, transferred to the base in Hasaka province of Rakka and desert areas of the Deir ez Zor province awaiting instructions from the “world solver”.
