On November 15, US Ambassador to Syria James Jeffrey exposed an evil plan of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to create ISIS and to hurl the Middle East, particularly Syria and Iraq, into chaos.

“We also think that you cannot have an enduring defeat of ISIS until you have fundamental change in the Syrian regime and fundamental change in Iran’s role in Syria, which contributed greatly to the rise of ISIS in the first place in 2013, 2014,” Jeffery said during a press briefing.

“The Syrian regime produced ISIS,” the diplomat added saying that the actions of the Damascus government created an opportunity for ISIS to grow.

By these remarks, Mr. Jeffrey just re-invented an old-fashioned propaganda narrative used by the so-called Syrian opposition to explain how it appeared that the main forces opposing the Assad government in Syria is ISIS and al-Qaeda. Then, Western-sponsored pro-opposition media outlets were claiming that the Assad government is somehow guilty that the main opposition to it is the internationally recognized terrorist groups.

In 2018, this narrative became useful for Washington to justify its further military presence in the war-torn country. The US-led coalition is contributing significant efforts to combat ISIS in its last real stronghold in the country – in the Hajin pocket – in a way that would not deliver significant damage to the terrorist group. However, the multi-month operation to defeat ISIS in Hajin cannot last endlessly. Therefore, some new formal pretext to keep troops in Syria will be very useful.

The real goals of the US are to limit the influence of Russia in the region and to assist Israel in its long-standing standoff against Iran.

Meanwhile, in the area of al-Safa where ISIS cells are also presented the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has also temporarily halted its advance on the terrorist group. This time due to poor weather conditions.

The new SAA push designed to put an end to ISIS presence in al-Safa started on November 11. Since then, the SAA had advanced several km deep into the ISIS-held area and captured several new positions. Should the weather improve, the SAA will continue its advance on the terrorists’ positions.

In the so-called Idlib de-escalation zone, northern Hama has been the most hot point where violations of the ceasefire have been reported several times. Particularly, Jaish al-Izza and other militant groups once again attacked SAA positions from the directions of al-Lataminah and al-Zakat.

    More stupid, hypocrite and terrorist than the deep state, I think it’s pretty much hard to find !

  • Vince Dhimos

    If Russia keeps true to its past behaviour, it will wait until the terrorists in the de-escalation zone become too obvious to overlook. At that point, it will have the moral advantage, as it did when Israel caused the Il-20 shootdown. That will enable it first to lead the charge of the Syrian army against the terrorists in Idlib and then also possibly set up a tiered S-300-EW base near there. This will be a de facto interdiction of US attacks just as the S-300 at the West coast was, which was intended not mainly to curb Israeli hotheads but to prevent US attacks.

      Maybe, but this is also a very slow and risky strategy, as you never know what shows up around the corner.

  • Roddy Wehrmacht

    LOL now Trump’s court jews and his Kikestani cohorts are saying ASSAD invented ISIS!!!!
    Assad was paying foreign jihadists to bomb his own infrastructure and kill his own people! He invited the Russians in after purposely decimating his own country!
    Turks, Brits, Americans and israelis aiding and abetting Assad and “his” ISIS!
    Only a jew could come up with such bullshit

      Always worth remembering this:

      The most revealing testimony was three weeks before W. Bush’s election for a second term in 2004 with Senior Advisor and Deputy Chief of Staff, Karl Rove, chiding Pulitzer-winning journalist, Ron Suskind, in a rare admission of naked truth. Rove said:

      Guys like [Suskind] were “in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” … “That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued. “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

    james jeffery is a shamless, pathological lying psychopath.. everyone with more than one viable firing synapse is aware that ISIS is a creation of the CIA/MOSSAD!

    Towards the end of the Yom Kippur War, Idi Amin threatened to send Ugandan troops to aid Egypt and to defeat Israel.
    Two weeks later the cease fire was announced.
    The world laughed at Amin, sending Africans armed with spears to defeat Israel was a huge joke.
    But the threat wasn’t aimed at Israel or the world. Millions of Ugandans who did not even have TV, saw only that Amin had threatened Israel and the war ended two weeks later.
    This whole nonsense about Assad is meaningless except to the really ignorant and stupid Americans and acts only as an excuse for spending billions in an attempt to steal more oil.
    50% of Americans think that two (relatively small) aeroplanes knocked down 3 huge buildings and that Saddam was behind it.
    60 % still believe that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction.
    90% believe that Iran threatens to ‘wipe Israel off of the map’.
    Never underestimate the stupidity of people especially Americans and their addiction to TV.
    Maddow has the most watched show in America!

    • Tommy Jensen

      Lesbian show is the most watched show in US??? No wonder the rest of the world is insane.

      • PJ London

        Apparently it out ranked even Fox with Hannity and Carlson.
        The Brave New World has arrived.

  • The Interrogator

    Will Butina’s plea deal is denied by the Court? CG has court documents which prove that Chutkan has engaged in criminal activity from the bench.

  • gustavo

    Some needs to so stu…..to believe to these “WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION.”

  • verner

    Why hasn’t Assad severed diplomatic contacts with the disunited states of America, he has every reason to do so and in particular when you consider that the civil war is the result of the disunited states of America’s meddling in Syria’s affairs.

  • frankly

    They seem to cycle through these spokespeople very rapidly. The stress of telling such a bold faced lie to a large audience must be intense. Meanwhile Syria grows stronger with each crisis and well, obviously, the west grows more desperate.

  • The Interrogator

    They attempted to kill CG last night.

    • Gregory Casey

      CG ? Who?

      • The Interrogator

        Exactly! You might want to do some research. He is blocked by NSA from posting here from his phone.

  • Streichhölzerschächtelchen

    NO!!! Millions of us trust Assad infinitely more than we trust the diabolical, manipulative CIA and the US military! As others have accurately commented, the CIA created ISIS, who also double in their free time as the “peace-loving” (sarcasm intended!) “White Helmets”! WHO do the idiots in Washington think they’re fooling?!

  • The Interrogator

    FSB needs to speek directly to the secretary (not her bosses who apear to be working for the CIA) at the Nicaraguan Consulate in Miami, because stupidity appears to be a common characteristic in both Western and Eastern Intelligence these days .

  • Chuma Anierobi

    Some of these people seem insane. How can a sane human talk like this?
