Op-Ed by Afraa Dagher
No reasonable person would deny the de facto role of the US in supporting the terrorists gangs in Syria. Since the very beginning of this proxy war against Syria, they were the crystallization of the West’s plan to achieve the destruction of Syria and its army, which, in turn, also helps the Zionist-Israeli plan regarding a new Middle East and a greater “Israel.”
The US depended on its regional allies like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey to destroy Syria by funding, training, smuggling of every kind of armed terrorist to the country.
The opposition recently revealed that a secret document has been signed between themselves and Qatar. In 2012, to get support, in exchange of overthrow president Assad, the Saudi kingdom funded the extremist Islamist terrorists in order to turn over power in Syria to those extremists!
Why doesn’t the US and Israel want Assad in as head of the Syrian government? Why do they prefer a caliphate and “moderate rebels”?
First, it should be remembered that these “rebels” vowed to destroy Syria and reduce the number of Syrian Soldiers.
Second, they never made any demands regarding the Israeli-occupied territories.
These terrorists would give more territory to Turkey.
They would allow the Qatari gas line to cross the Syrian lands!
And what did they achieve from their vows to the US?
Nothing but more sabotage of Syria and its people! Not only that, but they are now running private businesses under international protection due to their classification as a moderate opposition!
These businesses often manage the transfer of refugees from Turkey to Europe on board rickety boats, essentially human trafficking, but when the transit across the sea results in death, they blame the Syrian government. This is in addition to the trade in human organs back and forth between the terrorists, Turkey, and Israel! We should also mention the theft of Syrian archeology and the transfer of it to the West. Also, the drug smuggling operations and the smuggling of terrorists.
Lastly, we can’t forget how this war and the Western sanctions has destroyed the value of our currency too.
However, that was never a concern for the US!
Still, after more than five years of war against Syria, the West and its proxies have not achieved one goal. There is no transitional government. There is no division of Syrian land.
It was depressed for the US, the failure of its regional allies and local clients in changing the government, break the Syrian Army and divide the Syrian land!
For this reason, it is the time for the U.S. to run its media campaign, claiming that the US, alongside with its local allies, are liberating Raqqa, a Syrian province, which has fallen into the hands of ISIS. Of course, this city was conquered “rebels” earlier in this war but the “rebels,” for some reason the U.S. has never explained, simply gave it to ISIS.
The US jets, tanks and commandos have supported the same terrorist groups under the name of the Free Syrian Army as well as what they call the Syrian Democratic Forces SDF. But even to attach the label “Syrian” to any of these groups is disingenuous. There is nothing Syrian about them. The SDF is just another Free Syrian Army as it includes Canadians, Africans and Kurds, the latter being either extremists themselves or fighting for a separate state. I would ask, “Why has the YPG never coordinated with the Syrian Army, since the military represents the whole of Syria and not merely one race, sect, or group?”
In Western media, the purpose of supporting these groups was to defeat ISIS but what about the real purpose?
How could anyone believe that the ones who invaded Syria on board enemy tanks would be the ones to liberate our land?
Any group that joined American troops in the north of Syria should never be trusted. This brings to our memory the traitors and idiots in Iraq who actually welcomed the U.S. “liberation.” Indeed, the plan of the United States is to give entire areas of Syria to racial groups, sects, or religious affiliations so that it can break a unified country currently in opposition to its agenda and subsequently gain greater influence of all the resulting “autonomous” regions.
Thus, to thwart this evil plan, we trust that the Syrian Arab Army and the Hezbollah resistance movement backed by their allies, are the only ones who could liberate this land. And the real Syrians who believe in the unity of Syria, whatever their race, sect, or ethnicity are the only ones who have the right to make decisions about Syria.
At the time the US and its agents use their money, which is tainted by Syrian blood, to divide Syria and impose the federalization on this country, for the advantage of a Zio-US project, the Syrian people, with their blessed army, have been paying in blood for the sovereignty and unity of their homeland.
