Lavrov: Unclear what exactly US is doing in Syria & why results so insignificant — RT News

According to RT News, the Russian Foreign Ministry has questioned the effectiveness of the US-led year-long air campaign in Syria, saying it’s unclear “why the results of so many combat sorties are so insignificant.” It added that failing to curb ISIS, the US has now “adjusted” its program.

Surely Russia‘s questioning of the effectiveness of US policy in Syria is both relevent and constructive?


One response

  1. ISIS, as Dr Alf knows, is funded by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and Kuwait with considerable assistance from Turkey via a London correspondent bank in the City.
    Lord Dannatt, former head of the British Army has said much the same thing but has been ignored by the UK Foreign Office.
    Many of the Syrian rebel groups have tacit or direct links with ISIS and some have even pledged allegiance to Baghdadi the leader or “Caliph” of ISIS.
    The Gulf States who fund ISIS are some of the biggest recipients of export sales from BAE in the form of military aircraft and weapons and the American arms manufacturers.
    From this one can see that there are a financial interest and an interest in export sales /jobs at home in appearing to want to target ISIS but at the same time not doing them too much damage.
    Sergei Lavrov knows all this and that the real objective of Western policy on Syria is to replace Assad, Balkanise Syria, remove Iran and then destabilise Russia.
    In short ISIS is a Frankenstein that the West has allowed to be created and unleashed by others which it wants to stop at a time of its own choosing.
    Russia has pre-empted that possibility by seeing through the double game and the game played by Erdogan of Turkey who wants to use ISIS to rebuild the Ottoman Empire until he has no further use for them.
    Unleashed Frankensteins have a habit of getting out of control so ISIS as the latest manifestation of horror has to be destroyed by people willing not to be squeamish.
    Lavrov is very clear about Western motives but pretends not to be.
