The US should stop to try to find and support Syrian ‘moderate’ opposition groups, as in fact, Americans “have no idea who these people are,” President-elect Donald Trump said during an interview with The Wall Street Journal on Friday.

The future US president also noted that the US should focus its efforts in Syria on fighting against terrorists of the Islamic State (IS) group, instead of attempting to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, as well as be on the same wavelength with Russia.

“My attitude was you’re fighting Syria, Syria is fighting ISIS, and you have to get rid of ISIS. Russia is now totally aligned with Syria, and now you have Iran, which is becoming powerful, because of us, is aligned with Syria. … Now we’re backing rebels against Syria, and we have no idea who these people are,” Trump said.

If the US attacks Bashar al-Assad, “we end up fighting Russia, fighting Syria,” the politician concluded.

    Hes talking about you Turkey, Saudi, Israel etc. He still has to back Kurds since they are one of the ones along with SAA a chance of defeating ISIS in Syria. Plus they never worked with ISIS unlike FSA/jihadists terror groups.

      Trump’s not going to discipline Israel (that would be a little too much to ask considering that a fair proportion of his base is genuinely pro Israel), but i do believe he’s going to put a lid on their wider plan for regional destabilization.

    “We have no idea who these people are” , good observation. Even though Kerry (US) agreed to the last C/H , the “moderate rebels” would not agree , and continued to battle SAA . Even if Obama knows who they are, they are not under American control. Trump sees clearly the cognitive malfunction of the Dem. position . Trump and Putin working together just might be able to stop the Wahhabi death cult from destroying our world .

      Exactly!!!! Thank God I’m not the only one that see’s this. Assad must remain in power. Only Obama and Clinton wanted to see him go. Russia is fighting everyone single handedly.
      America is supporting Al Nusra even though they pretend they’re not. The Gulf Arabs are supporting ISIS even though they’re pretending they’re not. Trump and Putin have to get together and wipe all of them out.

      George Soros must be imprisoned or sent to Russia or China so he will never be heard of again. This is his doing. He must be STOPPED. The Syrian people have suffered too much for the agenda of Obama and Clinton, both working under the orders of Gulf Tyrants with a lot of petrol dollars to spread around and Soros’s dream of a borderless world. The Syrian war can be ended within a month with Russian and American cooperation. Something that would NEVER have happened with Obama and Clinton pulling the strings.

      The Qatar to Turkey pipeline will never be built. Let Russia maintain their monopoly of natural gas until the Arabs learn to play nice. They rarely do that. Maybe let Iran build theirs to the Med and see if they start playing nice. That will really piss off the Arabs. Geopolitical allegiances could change rapidly. We live in interesting times.

        The Dallas Police Department has filed charges against Soros with respect to BLM. Now there needs to be an Azarov govt.. in Kiev that will do the same with respect to Pravy Sektor hooligans.

        “George Soros must be imprisoned or sent to Russia or China so he will never be heard of again. This is his doing. He must be STOPPED.” – THE BEST QUOTE SO FAR TODAY!

      Where is Kerry? He has been a long time in the Antarctic?

      • Tomko Kubianca

        Who Cares????? He’s probably by a camp fire singing the blues with James Taylor saying “I thought it would work!”

      • BMWA1

        He is dealing with the numero uno Global challenge, AKA ‘climate change’.

      • John

        I have been thinking the same the last few weeks. He has completely disappeared, way before the election.

        • AMHants

          There was an article with regards him going to the antarctic to chat with the Khazar Mafia Heads, trying to figure out what to do next. I do not know if it is true or not, but a strange time for him to go checking out a research lab?

      • SOF

        Kerry has been trying to melt the Antarctic with his ketchup to prove global warming exists.

        • AMHants

          Hahaha, no doubt he took cans of the recycled UK aircraft carriers, now reincarnated as baked bean containers. Not only will they keep him well fed, down in the antarctic, but no doubt Heinz methane helped him with his mission?

          • SOF

            ‘Fart gas inhaled while served with ketchup’.

            Can’t think. LOL.

          • AMHants

            It’s enough to blow your mind haha.

      • trid2bnrml

        Antarctic my foot! Kerry has already fled to his bunker. He’s outta here!

        • AMHants

          That makes sense. He was meeting up with the coven and still no sign of him. Is he worried war crimes might be thrown his way? Or is there something on Weiner’s computer that has given him cause for concern?

          Who else is rather quiet?

          Nuland, Pyatt, Power, McCain (although they actually re-elected him), Biden?

          • trid2bnrml

            Absolutely! mclame was “re-selected” the same way hillary tried to be selected. We just didn’t catch it in mclame’s case…this time.

          • AMHants

            Those blasted Soros voting machines?

        • AMHants

          Haha – he has just popped up in New Zealand. Now where were those caves, they were going to flee to?

  • AMHants

    Common sense speaks. I wonder how he is going to contain McCain and all those heavily invested in the Qatar to Europe Pipeline? Or those that are sponsored by the US Defence Industry?

  • Divesh Kumar

    Hope good sense keeps on prevailing with in US elites. This is the only solution to stop blood shed.

  • BMWA1

    He is being kind, he suspects in fact that the type of persons IS known, thus the removal of support.

  • John

    This is good to hear but, I want to see what happens over the next year with President elect Trump.

  • trid2bnrml

    and this is exactly why the globalists and their warmongering pets hate Trump. In one short paragraph, he obliterated their entire military plan for global domination! GO PRESIDENT TRUMP!
