Experts of the US Stratfor analytical center have predicted the growth of the potential for clashes between Russia and the US in Syria in the fourth quarter of 2016.
Representatives of the US Stratfor analytical center have distinguished themselves by their analytics from the series ‘Captain Obvious.’ The Stratfor analytical article reads that in the fourth quarter of 2016 “the potential for clashes [between Russia and the US on Syria] will rise.”
“As the United States reinforces Sunni rebels in Syria and deprioritizes its dialogue with Moscow, the potential for clashes will rise going into the fourth quarter,” Stratfor analysts say. “Russia will rely more on military tactics than diplomatic wrangling to strengthen its negotiating position,” while “the United States will not be in the mood for creative bargaining in the final months of Obama’s presidency.”
After such a statement, we have only one question: ‘For what Stratfor analysts get their salary, if they issue obvious things as analytical materials?’ Today, only an incredibly distant from the news from Syria person can think that the situation between Moscow and Washington is not tense.
Just several days ago, spokesman for the US Department of State, John Kirby, in fact openly threatened Russia with terrorist attacks in Russian cities and dispatch of Russian troops “to home in body bags” from Syria. After the Kirby’s statement and the response of the Russian Defense Ministry, ‘analytical calculations’ of the Stratfor seem a bit belated.
