Syrian Army Calls US Bluff: Advance Towards Iraq Border Continues

_________________________

The USA is desperate to create a pretext for direct military intervention in Syria… but Syrian forces and their allies won’t take the bait. The US military presence in Syria is plainly illegal under international law, and arguably even unconstitutional. There are loopholes that allow for limited US military operations without a formal declaration of war, but the president can’t initiate a war without congressional approval. However, the attack on pro-government forces in southeast Syria on Thursday was just that… an act of war. The USA didn’t intend to deter the Syrian Arab Army from advancing; it knows that its proxy forces and mercenaries are unable to halt the Syrian forces and its allies as they push towards the border. In order to prevent Syria from reclaiming its own territory and securing its border, the USA would need to launch a direct military intervention. Of course, Washington would need a pretext for doing so. Do you see where this is going?

Thursday’s attack was a provocation… nothing more. Washington is eager to manufacture a pretext to increase its presence in Syria further. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the Syrian command and its allies are playing their cards in a calm and calculated way. A military response to Thursday’s attack would’ve been exactly what Washington wanted and needed. It’s hard to say what will come next, but a formation of Syrian troops is approximately 15 kilometres from al-Tanaf, keeping in mind that Thursday’s strike took place about 20 kilometres away; in other words, the provocation failed to deter the SAA and its allies from advancing. Not every loud statement is a true statement, but almost every silent move is a valid one. More will clarify in the coming days; Foreign Minister S V Lavrov made it clear that the US strike against the Syrian Arab Army was a “violation of Syria’s sovereignty”. That may sound like a wimpy response… but don’t be so sure. Lavrov’s statement is a reflection of Russian military policy. A Russian Su-30 was spotted over As-Suwayda Governorate; most likely, it was covering the Syrian troops advancing towards al-Tanaf from any foolish hostility.

Putin Called Allegations Trump Passed Secrets to Lavrov “Political Schizophrenia”

________________________

President V V Putin was speaking with the Italian Prime Minister in Sochi when the Italian asked him about the latest events in the USA. Putin said of these outlandish claims:

We’re seeing a developing political schizophrenia in the USA. There’s no other way I can explain the accusations against the US President that he gave away some secrets to Lavrov. Those who spread them (rumours) are either stupid or dangerous. Russia doesn’t interfere in US political activities. I’ll show the world the Russian transcripts of the entire meeting, should the USA give us permission to do so.

He echoed the remarks of Presidential Spokesman D S Peskov who called the allegations “absurd”. Meanwhile, MID RF spokesman M V Zakharova said:

It’s part of a campaign that began before the US presidential election and gone on since then. This is another attempt to exert pressure on the new US administration and make deals related to various political appointments and lobbying. We can’t even say now that there’s media bias because they’re openly fulfilling political orders. The article mentions no evidence; it comes from information received from unknown sources. Actually, there’s a typical pattern about the way that such articles come out and the response that they get.

Lavrov sez: “We Won’t Leave the People of the Donbass in the Lurch”

War damage in the Donbass… the fighting continues… but for how much longer?

____________________________________

Minister of Foreign Affairs S V Lavrov said in an interview:

Our efforts will continue to aim at preventing “hotheads” in Kiev from starting a new cycle of violence in the southeast. In any case, we won’t leave the people of the Donbass in the lurch. The process of settlement in the southeast stalled because of the persistent reluctance of the Ukrainian leadership to fulfil its obligations under the Minsk Agreements. We’ll continue to work hard to make Kiev stop its blockade of the Donbass and proceed to a full implementation [of the Minsk Agreements]. We expect a similar attitude from the West, as they’ve repeatedly claimed that they want a speedy implementation of the Minsk Agreements, as they stated that there’s no alternative to them. The main point of the Minsk Agreements is that there should be direct dialogue between Kiev and Donetsk and Lugansk. Neither Russia nor the new US president nor anyone else will be able to do anything for the parties to the conflict, for a settlement depends upon direct negotiations between the parties on mutual guarantees of security and the principles of building a common future.
