Syria: The Battle for Raqqa, Another US Deception. ISIS-Daesh Was Created by Washington

Thème:
Analyses:

There’s nothing civil about Obama’s war on Syria, one of history’s great crimes – using ISIS and likeminded jihadist extremists as US death squads, raping and destroying a sovereign state threatening no others.

America wants another imperial trophy. Terrorists imported from scores of countries are aided by Pentagon special forces and US-led so-called coalition warplanes.

They’re terror-bombing vital infrastructure, government sites and civilian targets, operating illegally, not combating ISIS as officially proclaimed.

Washington’s orchestrated Raqqa offensive has nothing to do with liberating the city from ISIS control, likely intending to reposition its fighters elsewhere, perhaps in the battle for Aleppo.

The offensive’s aim is a likely scheme to divide Syria, transferring sovereignty from Damascus to northern territory, controlled by a US-installed puppet regime, maybe a Kurdish/Arab coalition if things go the way Washington plans.

It’s using terrorist fighters called “moderates” and Kurdish YPD forces, wanting an independent Kurdistan in northern Syria, perhaps a platform for incorporating Kurdish-populated Iraq and Turkey one day.

Last March, Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) officials met with Arabs and other northern Syria ethnic groups in northeastern Hasakeh province. They agreed on establishing area autonomy, short of declaring independence – likely acting with US support.

Turkey is adamantly opposed. So is Damascus, Syrian UN envoy Bashar al-Jaafari at the time, saying “(b)etting on creating any kind of divisions among the Syrians will be a total failure.”

Damascus rejects the idea of a so-called Federation of Northern Syria run as an autonomous region. It has no constitutional legitimacy.

ISIS was created and remains supported by Washington. Claims of Pentagon and so-called “coalition” warplanes bombing them in areas around Mosul, Iraq and Raqqa, Syria are phony. Empty buildings and other targets are struck – civilians indiscriminately massacred in the process.

Media scoundrels propagate the myth of America’s led liberating struggle in both countries, while ignoring its terror-bombing responsible for mass slaughter of noncombatants in Syria and Iraq – part of its phony war on terror, a post-9/11 hoax.

A reported 30,000 US-backed fighters are involved in the so-called Wrath of Euphrates Raqqa offensive.

ISIS captured the city in 2013, establishing it as its Syrian headquarters. Maybe Washington intends relocating its fighters, wanting them used as imperial foot soldiers elsewhere in Syria.
