U.S. State Dept Says Assad Is Preventing Peace In Syria; U.S. Proxy War, Nusra Not Cause For Worry

assad putin obamaBy Brandon Turbeville

A month after the last ceasefire in Syria fell apart as a result of the failure of the United States and its terrorist proxies to adhere to just one of their obligations under the agreement, the United States government is still claiming that the reason there is no ceasefire ongoing in Syria is entirely the fault of President Bashar al-Assad and, of course, the scary Russians.

In fact, on October 20, infamous narcissist, State Department Spokesman John Kirby openly stated that the “only thing” standing in the way of a “permanent ceasefire” in Syria is the “regime” of Bashar al-Assad.

“The only thing that stands between where we are now and a permanent and enduring ceasefire in Syria is Bashar al-Assad and his supporters,” he said.

In other words, “If Assad would just step down and let us have our way with his country, we wouldn’t have to keep killing civilians, funding proxy terrorists, and bombing Syrian infrastructure.” Doesn’t Assad understand that the U.S. owns his country and that he is supposed to follow the dictates of Washington regardless of what the Syrian people desire? The nerve of Assad, trying to defeat terrorists and maintain the sovereignty of his nation!

Kirby did, at least, acknowledge the presence of al-Nusra, but only tepidly. “We recognize Al-Nusra as a spoiler, we have concerns about co-mingling, I’ve talked about this ad nauseam,” he said.

Of course, al-Nusra is more than just a mere “spoiler,” it is open terrorist organization that the United States armed, funded, and trained to act as a proxy force that is no ideologically (or even physically) different than ISIS, Ahrar al-Sham, or the “moderates” of the Free Syrian Army. It is also an organization that the United States was supposed to separate from the groups of these shadowy “moderates” we have heard so much about over the course of the last five years but who are apparently phantoms lurking about in the rafters of the Syrian theatre.

The very fact that the United States blamed Russia (along with Assad) for the collapse of the ceasefire and argued that the U.S. was not supposed to separate the “moderates” from the “extremists” until after seven days is thus an admission that, without the requirements of the ceasefire in place, the U.S. would never have separated them at all. But this was the crux of the U.S. position; essentially that it knew who the “moderate” cannibals were and that they were different from the extremist cannibals. If that is the case, then wouldn’t separating the two be the goal all along? Why did the United States need to be required by a ceasefire agreement (as a concession no less) to separate the two different elements of the “opposition” if it was truly in support of defeating the “extremists?”

As Joseph Thomas writes for New Eastern Outlook,

It also appears to be no coincidence that this scenario now openly unfolding in Syria fulfils warnings published by Western journalists as early as 2007 (Seymour Hersh, The Redirection) in which it was revealed that the US was already at that time providing material support to extremist organisations “sympathetic to Al Qaeda” toward the end goal of overthrowing the governments of both Iran and Syria.

While the US now claims Russia has sabotaged US efforts to bring an end to hostilities in Syria, Washington is also illogically attempting to argue that the failure of its feigned “peace talks” has also somehow prevented the US from targeting terrorists organisations in Syria, the alleged pretext of America’s presence in Syria to begin with.

Despite strained relations with Russia, the US is still cooperating with Moscow regarding the use of Syrian airspace to avoid unintentional confrontations. While the cessation of hostilities may have collapsed, is there really any excuse as to why separating designated terrorist organisations from militant groups the US and its allies are providing billions in weapons and equipment to is still not an absolute and urgent priority?

The answer is, no — there is no excuse. Or perhaps it is more accurate to say, it is simply an excuse for the US to continue funnelling men and materiel into Syria Washington knows with absolute certainty will end up in the ranks of Al Qaeda, whom the US admittedly intended to use as early as 2007 to overthrow the Syrian government with.

As a result, the State Department’s ridiculous leveling of the blame for the failure of the ceasefire on Assad can be chalked up to yet another statement based in absolute falsehood and intentional deception. Indeed, this is the type of statement the U.S. State Department is becoming renowned for the world over, from blaming Russia for bombing a convoy even if it didn’t bomb the convoy, claiming Russian aggression in Ukraine, asserting that Assad is “killing his own people,” “barrel bombing civilians,” and attacking hospitals, what little shred of credibility the State Department may have left outside of American borders is rapidly disappearing.

  1. Power, Rice and Nuland are the three blind witches constantly stirring their cauldron of death, destruction and misery. If Trump wins the White House, I would hope these three will be ordered to depart on their broomsticks posthaste.

  2. Does anyone that keeps up with the real news believes anything the state departments says?

  3. yeah it’s not the US proxy army ISIS’s fault! Recall, just a few days ago, the US/Saudi’s agreed between themselves and didn’t bother asking anyone else, to allow 9k ISIS fighters to flee Mosul Iraq and RUN AWAY to Raqqa Syria to FIGHT ASSAD! but it’s Assad’s fault, right??
    What a giant load of crap!

    NOTHING the US government tells anyone can ever be believed, remember, this is the same government that LIED to the world that the Lusitania did not have munitions when it did “it’s been proven ON TELEVISION by a submarine bringing up munitions from the wreckage!”
    The same US government that LIED about there being mines in Havana harbor sinking the USS Maine,. The same US government that LIED about torpedo’s in the gulf of Tonkin, THE SAME US GOVERNMENT THAT LIED ABOUT WMD’S IN IRAQ!!!!

    Believe the US government at your own peril! They have proven themselves completely untrustworthy, they are unabashed sociopathic pathological lying psychopaths who will say and do anything that supports their agenda!

  4. US credibility has gone out the window. Its the new Black is white and white is black and the lies continue and the sheep cheer cause they just cant believe they are being lied to by their lacky’s and the media confirms it. Who has done an investigation into the attack on those Humanitarian trucks that the apostle John Kerry instantly accused Russia or Syria, strange they could not decide who and yet Russia is able to track 2 Belgium F16’s killed and injured civilians near Aleppo?
    We are being fed BS and the Puppets all make the same noise from the UK/France and Merkel.

  5. USA and NATO allies with Israel are responsible for that horrible war that destroyed life of innocent Syrians. All those meetings and UN solutions is going nowhere because US want regime change in Syria by using those killer terrorists to attack strategic positions against Assad troops and bombing bridges, infrastructures of the country. The real solution is US and NATO allies need to get out of Syria and let
    Russia does the fast clean up. US strategy in Syria doesn’t work anymore and they try to save life of those killer terrorists in Aleppo by negotiating with Russia free passage to another area of the country
    as long they stop to fight against Assad troops at Aleppo.Those killer terrorists take Syrians as human shield to protect themselves. What a nonsense and time consuming that going nowhere. If this similar war were in Israel, long time Israel will do a huge and fast clean up of those terrorists to protect the security and the stability of the country at any cost. A no fly zone of Syrian airspace is the best solution for any US and NATO allies military airplanes that attack any infrastructure buildings and bridges in Syria territory to face military response with zero tolerance.

  6. Doesn’t everyone know now that Al Nusra IS Al Qaida IS ISIS? All started and funded by the US back when they started the Mujahideen to shoot Russians.
    As the other posts state, the US shadow government is fast becoming the bully in the playground everyone wants to see knocked down and taken away forever.

  7. the arrogance of d.c. the world sees it for what it really is. we the people will suffer for the scumbags in d.c.’s actions.
