Assad States the Obvious: US Troops in Syria Are “Invaders” Who “Lost Nearly Every War”

____________________________________

Uninvited “guests” seriously complicated the situation in northern Syria, compelling Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to re-state the obvious… Turkish and American troops in northern Syria are invaders. Period. During an interview with Chinese PHOENIX TV, as cited by the Syrian state-run SANA news agency, Assad emphasised that Damascus never invited American or Turkish forces to operate within its territory… making Washington and Ankara’s “participation” in the conflict a flagrant violation of Syria’s sovereignty:

Any foreign troops coming to Syria without our invitation or consultation or permission are invaders, whether they are American, Turkish, or any other one.

When a journalist asked the Syrian president if Damascus had “opened doors” for American troops in Aleppo province’s city of Manbij, Assad said:

No, we didn’t. What are they [foreign troops] going to do? Fight ISIS [Islamic State, formerly ISIL]? The Americans lost nearly every war. They lost in Iraq; they had to withdraw at the end… even in Somalia, let alone Vietnam in the past, and Afghanistan. The USA didn’t succeed anywhere they sent troops, they only create a mess; they’re very good in creating problems and destroying, but they’re very bad in finding solutions.

So just to recap… American soldiers in Syria are “invaders” who “only create a mess” and have lost “nearly every war”. We’re glad someone finally said it.

This came from an ordinary Christian believer:

If practising your faith in peace means being pro-Assad, then, we’re all Assadists.

If you heed anything in the MSM about “moderate oppositionists” or “democratic enclaves”, or if you agree with its demonisation of Bashar al-Assad, you’re a goddamned fool, or a soulless opportunist, or a smarmy apologist for Anglo aggression. There are no other choices…

What’s Behind the Turning Point in the Battle for Aleppo

00-syria-army-aleppo-041216

____________________________________

After long months under jihadist control, the Russian Centre for Syrian Reconciliation said that the Syrian Army liberated parts of eastern Aleppo (with 90,000 residents). The Centre stated that 507 terrorists have already left Aleppo and laid down arms, adding that the authorities immediately granted amnesty to 484 fighters from amongst local residents. Igor Korotchenko, editor of National Defence magazine, said:

This turning point in the fight for Aleppo reflects the growing superiority of the Syrian government troops over the enemy, including Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) and the al-Nusra Front. The high morale of Assad’s army, its skilful tactics in urban fighting, and the increased competence of Syrian Amy commanders contribute to that. In addition, the terrorists face growing resistance from the local population, who don’t provide them any kind of help at all. Locals are unwilling to act as human shields for the jihadists. This turning point in the fight for Aleppo came despite no air support for the Syrian Army, in line with current moratoriums on Russian and Syrian airstrikes in a 10-kilometre (6.2 miles) radius around Aleppo. The jihadists can no longer effectively use their military supply lines, as Syrian government forces interdict them. All this paves the way for a full liberation of eastern Aleppo from the terrorists, which in turn will contribute to a large-scale political dialogue between Bashar al-Assad’s government and the moderate Syrian opposition. It’s important to reach a consensus on Syria between Russia and the new US Administration, to separate moderate opposition groups from terrorists, as well as coördinate efforts by the Russian Air Force group and the US-led coalition in Syria.

Meanwhile, Minister of Foreign Affairs S V Lavrov said that US Secretary of State John Kerry finally made proposals on how to move forward on the crisis in Aleppo that seem acceptable to Russia. The statement came after the two men met on the sidelines of the Mediterranean Dialogues in Rome, Italy, a conference dealing with security issues faced by countries on the Northern and Southern shores of the Mediterranean. Lavrov told reporters after they asked him if there was any progress with Washington on dissociation of the terrorists and moderate opposition in Syria:

Yesterday during our meeting in Rome, Kerry turned in American proposals in line with proposals defended for a long time by our experts.

Over recent months, Aleppo was a major battleground in Syria, with government forces, jihadists, and numerous opposition groups engaged. Encircled by government forces, militants hold Eastern Aleppo, and the fighting affects thousands of civilians still trapped in the city. According to Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and United Nations Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien, between 200,000 and 300,000 civilians are still in the terrorist-held eastern neighbourhoods of Aleppo.

Syria Refuses to Submit

00 russia syria shoigu and assad 190616

_____________________________________

Syria refuses to submit. That is why they teach the West to hate her, and the rest of the world learns to love and respect her. Yet, Syria’s struggles are our struggles. Syria represents international law, stability, and integrity… the same values that western peoples overtly cherish but stubbornly reject, as our countries wilt beneath suffocating veils of lies and delusions. I support Syria, because I respect what remains of international law. I support Syria because I reject Wahhabism, Sharia law, and terrorism. I support Syria because I reject the undemocratic transnational oligarchies that subvert our once flourishing, now dead, democracies. I reject the lies of our propagandising media, the hollow words of our politicians, and the fake “humanitarian” messaging that demonises non-belligerent countries and their populations. In the name of justice, humanity, and the rule of law, I support the elected government of Syria led by its President, Bashar al-Assad. Syria, an ancient cradle of civilisation, is leading the way towards a better future for all of us. All we have to do is open our eyes.
