Syrian Army Victory In Idlib Is Impossible: Mike Pompeo

Click to see full-size image

On February 25th, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the Syrian government wouldn’t achieve any military victory in Idlib, and that the offensive only increased the risk of a conflict with Turkey.

Pompeo began with “briefly” addressing the situation in Idlib, and the “Syrian regime’s brutal operation”, “cynically” backed by Moscow and Tehran.

He also alleged that more than 3 million people were displaced in Idlib, which is 3 times as much as the typical Turkish claim of 1 million.

“Assad regime’s brutal new aggressions cynically backed by Moscow and Tehran imperils now more than 3 million displaced persons including as we have tragically seen young people,” Pompeo told reporters at a news conference.

“As we have said many times before, the regime will not be able to obtain military victory. The regime’s offensive only heightens the risk of conflict with our NATO ally Turkey,” he said.

According to Pompeo, the solution in Syria is a “permanent ceasefire and UN-led negotiations under UN Security Council resolution 2254” and the Trump administration is “working together with Turkey on seeing what we can do together.”

There could also potentially be another way to solve the crisis, such as Turkey not continuously supplying militants “moderate opposition” with equipment and not successively deploying troops at positions which are not observation posts under the Sochi Agreement, however, the time for that has passed and Ankara has vested too much into denying that there are terrorists in Idlib, and it is simply civilians and “pan-democrats” fighting for their human rights, by way of “humanitarian tools” such as ATGMs, armored vehicles and automatic rifles.

The State Department, in an emailed response to questions from Al-Monitor, reiterated Pompeo’s call for a cease-fire, and condemnation of the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and its Russian and Iranian backers, and expressed solidarity with the Turkish government.

“We join the UN in calling for an immediate cease-fire and for indiscriminate violence against the people of northwest Syria by the Assad regime, Russian, and Iranian forces to stop,” a State Department spokesperson said in an email.

“The Syrian people are bearing the burden of Assad’s push for victory and paying a terrible and deadly price,” the spokesman continued, noting that more than 80% of the almost million people who have fled to date are women and children. “Babies and small children are dying from the cold. More people are dying from attacks on settlements for the displaced.”

“While the Assad regime and Russia continue to indiscriminately attack and kill civilians, the US government is providing humanitarian assistance to those in need in northwest Syria,” the State Department spokesperson continued. “Despite ongoing safety and security challenges for humanitarian agencies in northwest Syria, State and USAID partners continue to provide emergency assistance to vulnerable populations. US government partners are distributing essential relief items, food, and winterization support to internally displaced persons (IDPs); supporting hospitals and mobile clinics serving conflict-affected populations; and providing shelter and water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) assistance to IDPs in camps and informal settlements across the region.”

“Turkey alone cannot handle the humanitarian fallout caused by Russia and the Assad regime’s continued attacks on the people of northwest Syria,” the State Department spokesperson said. “We stand by our NATO ally Turkey against these actions. President Trump, in his call with Turkish President Erdogan on Saturday, reiterated our call for Russia to end its support for the Assad regime’s atrocities and for a political resolution to the Syrian conflict.”

The United States has not yet announced additional pledges of support to address the staggering humanitarian crisis.

The US support for Turkey so far is expressed in diplomatic rhetoric, no action, apart from arming groups in northeastern Syria who are using the weapons to fight the Turkish troops in the region.

The UN humanitarian affairs office said it was increasing its appeal to $500 million from $336 million to try to provide assistance to over a million people from northwest Syria over the next six months.

“We initially sought to help 800,000 displaced people over the next six months; we are now planning to address the needs of 1.1 million people,” Jens Laerke, a spokesman for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, told journalists in Geneva.

    if you Dummies still dont see the Evil satanic treacherous Play by them satanic zionists, …Evil has won….and as the old saying goes

    “The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.”

    PUTIN is a treacherous Zionist pig!!!!

    ps. the russian Military Leadership is not at all happy with Putins Actions in regards to Turkey and Israel!!!

    if you Folks would care About the numerous russian Military press conferences in regards to syria, you would see and hear how the russian Military is VERY CLEAR About the Evil Actions of Turkey and Israel in regards to syria.
    And dont u Folks Forget how the russian MILITARY Leadership REACTED to the Shooting down of a russian Military intelligence plane by SAA through the Evil Actions of IDF……

    The russian Military Leadership would not even MEET with the israeli Delegation…..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    and they made it perfectly clear, that the Actions of IDF were criminal and amounted to a act of war.

    2 weeks later (15 days)…. BIBI flew to Moskau…met his Zionist fuck brother PUTIN…….and all smiles…all good here is the Quote from Putin at that Meetings end infront of the press
    ” we are happy to be good Friends with the state of Israel and are Looking Forward to work together to bring Peace to syria”

    and the Quote from BIBI
    “thank you for the warm welcome and the friendship and partnership between isarel and Russia.We will continue to work with russia in regards to syria, but i also made perfectly clear to president Putin , that Israel will not allow iranian Forces to be stationed in syria”

    Putin is a treachrous Zionist pig..

    ps. just imagine..Dummies…… if Putin would have said NO to erdogan in regards to AFRIN!!!
    we all would not have These fuckin conversations regarding Turkey in syria, and the sooner or later, direct Involvement of NATO due to turkish Actions and defeats.That is the worst case szenarion for syria.direct NATO involvenemnt.zionist Dream. a Zionist Dream that could soon turn true due to Putins Actions.

    • EveryoneIsBiased

      Some true and sadly underreported facts. And as i said before, i too see the Idlib deal as Putins biggest ever mistake in over 2 decades in forgein policy.
      BUT: That mistake is now being corrected. Which is what has changed, and what counts now.

    the disunited states of A offers bounties in the millions on the eads of people washington dc find odious and repellent and so on so why can’t a mega-rich american hating oligarch in the ME or Asia offer say a 25mb bounty on fatos’s head or 50mb bounty on dúnny the dunce’s head. fatso would be hard to miss and dunny wouldn’t be missed ever by anyone, well maybe jared and botox bitch and netanyahu would miss him a little bit.

    instead these arses run around and kill and maim and destroy the lives of hundred of thousands just to keep the mic happy and the dividends coming in plentiful.

    This is a sheer evil on Pompeo”s part

  • Ross

    Fakespeak:
    According to Pompeo, the solution in Syria is a “permanent ceasefire and UN-led negotiations under UN Security Council resolution 2254”

    Realspeak:
    The solution is to implement the Yinon plan and break Syria up into weak and easily controllable vassal statelets.

    I always have a good laugh with the nonsense the Pomp spews out. So ridiculous but also sad.

    Yeah, especially if CIA plans to submarine-nuke SAA positions.

    A fat, pompous piece of shit working for a fat, pompous piece of shit.

  • You can call me Al

    Listen you American ponce, just because your war machine is only capable of winning over Grenada in your 2 centuries of war, that doesn’t mean that other Countries are shit, especially since you are talking about the SAA, Russian forces and Hezbollah – the latter 3 will eliminate all your terrorists and send them back to you if you want. Now fuck off.

    • Saint Jimmy (Russian American)

      I don’t know how that lying, soulless waste of sperm can live with himself. However, that statement now applies to about 90 percent of US political and financial elites.

  • Vollkrassmann

    Pompeo obviously wants to play the role of an a.hole in this area. Lying and cheating on behalf of US-american grabbing policy for influence whereever they go to suppress other countries and put them under their control, steal their oil or whatever.
    And yes, this guy is 100 % not interested in any “civilian” in Northern Syria.
    On the other side most of these civilians I guess are the wives, the buddies, and the descendants of the beheaders who are now probably heading to go out of the area, waiting for the call of a b.tch named Merkel for a working-free and pretty life in alien-welcoming “Germoney” until burial….
    If I am not right with this assessment then I have to ask: Why do these civilians not settle down somewhere in Syria? Besides the above mentioned call for paradise, maybe bc they hate Assad, maybe bc they have been anti-Assad criminals, thiefs, rapers, murderers to their loyal-to-Assad minded neighbors – who now want to avoid prosecuting measures by Syrian law system ?
    Questions and more questions….

  • Lone Ranger

    Pimpeo blames Syria, Russia, Iran for the crimes he and his CIAisis toyboys are comitting.
    He is in for a surprise…
    The Idlib cant fall rethoric is the same as Assad must go…
    Keep dreaming Pimpeo and send more bodybags for your CIA trolls and Turkroaches.

    • Saint Jimmy (Russian American)

      I think the terrorists who remain alive after a cease fire should be relocated to northern Virginia, preferably near a place called Langley. Move some of them into town houses in DC and Georgetown.

      • Lone Ranger

        👍😋😇

      • Vollkrassmann

        Excellent idea.
        But then again that’s not quite human/politically correct due to “We the people” in Virginia who are not in the mood to give away their guns – as I’ve heard recently…

  • rightiswrong rightiswrong

    Pompous Mike knows all about civil wars.

    It’s a life or death battle every day for him, to tighten his belt and tie his shoelaces.

    He’s seen the far side of the Moon more often than he seen his own toes.

  • Arbaches Glaukus

    Idlib issue it is very complicated because on the top of 70000 ISIS fighters with their families, there are involved many Visible and Invisible players.
