U.S. Accuses Russia Of Promoting Instability In Middle East, Violating Ceasefire Regime In Syria

Click to see the full-size image

The US is accusing Russia of spreading instability in the Middle East and violating the UN-backed ceasefire regime in Syria.

“Diplomatically and militarily, Moscow plays both arsonist and firefighter, fueling tensions among all parties in Syria,” the commander of US Central Command, Gen. Joseph Votel, said on Feburary 27.

“It is clear that Russia’s interests in Syria are Russia’s interests and not those of the wider international community,” he said. “Their role is incredibly destabilizing at this point.”

Gen. Votel continued saying that Russia offers to serve as a mediator in an effort to “undermine and weaken each party’s bargaining position.”

“An increase in Russian surface-to-air missile systems in the region threatens our access and ability to dominate the airspace,” the general complained.

On the same day, the US State Department accused Russia of “not supporting” the UN-backed ceasefire in Syria and reavealed a disastrous fact that Moscow “continues to back” the Syrian government.

Washington also accused Damascus of conducting a chemical attack in Eastern Ghouta, but admitted that it was still looking for evidence to prove the claim.

      Something they overlook if they are actually bombing pro-government forces in Deir ezzzoir region then the US is violating the resolution 2401 on the ceasefire in all of Syria.

      The Jewish pigs will simply demand their US puppet to attack Iran..

      The Jewish pigs control the governments and they want their “pound of flesh” meaning more death and destruction of the Arabic world…

  • Joe

    How Russia is so patient with these kids puzzles us all.

    One question , does US has any control over the rebels that refused to allow civilians to leave battle zones and acted so biased and nonsensical accusations when they should look into the mirror.

    The pot is not even calling the kettle black , it is calling their own pot black.

    • Barba_Papa

      Russia is patient because militarily its relatively weak. It has only a small contingent there, even when they were at its largest, and its supply lines there can be cut off by NATO (I’m calling them NATO because its easier then to list every American sidekick country, but any military operation in Syria would not involve NATO in any real way). If they want too the Americans could overwhelm the Russian in Syria. It will cost them, but they can.

      As for US control over the rebels, I doubt that there is much. They do what they want anyway. Half the time they’re just as happy killing each other anyway. But when they fight Assad, their interests overlaps with that of the US, and when they prevent civilians from leaving, causing more of them to die, that also serves the US well. In essence they’re useful idiots.

      • jorge

        Well, on a WWIII there will be no supply lines, sticks and rocks, sure, but no humans to fight with that, nihil.

        • Barba_Papa

          And yet we increasingly have politicians and generals who seem to think you can wage war against a nuclear armed power. That worries me more then anything, because if deterrence no longer works, all bets are off. That’s how WWI started.

          • jorge

            The neo colonial western bet must be stoped here, if not, the stupids that could do an WWIII (for some minutes) will be encouraged. More or less as Hitler was encouraged with the Spanish war (36/39)

    • FlorianGeyer

      If Russia was not the Responsible Adult ,there would have been WW3 by now.

    • gustavo

      I repeat again, USA does not care what other people (other nation different from England or Israel) think about it. USA is a proudly unmoral, criminal, cynical, arrogant, hypocritical, authoritarian, world drug controller, and imperialistic.

    “An increase in Russian surface-to-air missile systems in the region threatens our access and ability to dominate the airspace,” the (US) general complained.
    The United States and Israel are the intruders. The US has NO rights to anything in Syria much less dominate anything. Nothing at all. To shoot down an illegal plane over Syria is a sovereign right of Syria or its legally invited allies.

    • Barba_Papa

      International rights only matter when it is the other guy who is the transgressor. Since the West is moral and just, we can never be the ones who break the rules.

    One small problem: the mad U$Asylum Empire does not seem to realise that everyone awake in the world knows that the reverse is true. They are braying like the dumbest donkeys only to those still asleep.

    They are there in Syria illegally. Russia is there at the request of the democratically elected Syrian President.

    The mad bully of this planet digs its pit of insanity deeper with every lie it roars.

    We live in THE MOST INTERESTING TIMES. BUT WILL WE SURVIVE THEM?

    • MichaH

      As long as the mainstream media ist on their side, and to some level those who onliy listen to these Newsnetworks, they do not care about lying, and as long as these kind of atrocities do not come along with the cost of votes in the elections, they never stop with their game. In the case of the USA it is even worth because both sides you can elect talk the same amount of shitty lies.

      Ergo: There is no chance that anything will change, sad story ….

      • Johnpd

        The mainstream media is losing its grip on the public: I think it was on http://www.paulcraigroberts.org that I read only 6% of US public now believes MSM lies.
        The Mad Empires crumbles.
        John Doran.

      • Barba_Papa

        Thing is though, even though most people still get their news from the MSM, the vast majority of people just don’t care about Syria. They liked it when Trump laid down the law with that cruise missile strike after Khan Sheykhun, but that was just a quick sucker punch. There is no stomach in any Western country for a real military intervention in Syria, other then against IS. And only because IS was stupid enough to declare war against the West and encourage its nutjobs to commit attacks there. If they hadn’t, like Al-Nusra, IS would still be there right now in large parts of Syria. Just like Al-Nusra.

        Western leaders are aching to intervene in Syria and topple Assad’s government, but they are hampered by the fact that there is no public support to do so. Other then the odd punishment strike after a major chemical attack. But even then only just for a quick strike, not a prolonged air campaign. Which is made worse by the Russian presence there.

        • Joe

          I don’t think it is because of lack of public support that they are not in Syria doing the fighting. It is rather they do not want to die in big numbers . Today the war is different from before where enemies carry only bows and arrows . They were very brave. Today their enemies carry Atgms and ever ready to give a big embrace and go to heavens with 72 virgins together.

          Gone are the days that Western powers are able to do serious battle unless their own countries are threatened..

          That is why country like Israel only talk but no actions .

  • leon mc pilibin

    Its really mind boggling to hear this massive amount of lying BS in such a small article.There is no point in even having a dialogue with lunatics like this..Just ignore them and carry on with the job of freeing Syria from the clutches of these satanic monsters,regardless of what lies they spew out..They are obviously desperate to salvage something from their failed regime agenda in Syria,,and Russia ,Iran ,Hezbollah are their enemies to blame for that.Well thats tough,they are not as powerful as they thought they were.

    • Joe

      Ya just send the Houthis to finish them off. That would be the biggest insult to them big time while Assad forces prevent any reinforcement. Lol

      In Yemen the Saudis sacked all the top generals for losing. So should be the same in Syria .

    • AM Hants

      Out of curiousity how much has it cost the US and allies to try and pillage Syria? Yet, do the tax payers even know they were paying for it?

      • gustavo

        They do not care, as far as they have a job. Money is not at all a problem, USA can print as many dollars it needs, and the whole world accept it and buy dollars.

        • AM Hants

          However, that will soon not be the case, but, they have not figured it out yet.

        • as

          Not so much forever. Especially not when we have here something like countering adversary through sanctions. That’s just a plain coercion. Preceding administration at least still have the mind to keep bribing the right people. Now boom ! America goes full crazy waving their dicks around.

    • George King

      Their propaganda returns are obviously diminishing, unfortunately, it does not stop them from murdering civilians and troops in the country where they are illegally camped and from where they are conducting hostile operations against the legitimate government and its defence forces. Are they or are they not War Criminals by acting the way are? Can they not be held to account for their “War Crimes”, in Syria? Iraq? Libya? Afghanistan? Nicaragua? Grenada?, Panama? Korea? Vietnam? Cambodia? to name but a few.

  • SnowCatzor

    The US deep-state and it’s MSM cheerleaders can spread all the fake news they want, every day fewer and fewer people listen to them. If their propaganda didn’t work during Aleppo, it’s unlikely to work now.

      Hahaha! The General is throwing a tantrum for the cameras.

      Russia, please supply as many S400 missiles as possible. Make Syria, Lebanon and Iraq a No-Fly Zone for USA, Israel and Turkey. It will stop Israel’s plans to attack Lebanon, and not a single shot will have to be fired to achieve that.

      • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

        This photo is from the 80’s movie “They Live” and they photo shopped in Al Qaeda “sweet hearts” in it,really eye opening about media control and advertising about mind control used on people.

    The US is so hypocritical is maddening. How can Putin be so patient with these fucks i don’t know.

    • jorge

      On war, my dear EoF, patient it’s a big, big arm. Put yourself by land, at night, with a knife, and try to make 5 meters without a noise.

    • AM Hants

      He allows them to open up, come out of hiding and covert operations and show the world just how blasted stupid they are. Knowing that they will never fail.

    The hypocrisy here is insane. Seriously?

    Continue saturating Syria with anti-air rockets Putin. They’re obviously butthurt about it.

  • EoF

    Russia needs to send warships to the Gulf of Mexico to secure Venezuela. fucking do it putin. START DOING SOMETHING.

    • jorge

      Venezuela already has a very big big ship near: It’s called Cuba and, once upon a time, destroyed the Apartheid.

  • EoF

    “violating the UN-backed ceasefire regime in Syria.”
    Has this fuck even read the UN resolution? I have no words

  • EoF

    Since Russia is usually so passive, the US feels encouraged to continue in their aggressions all over the world. Putin needs to ACT.

  • qveenz

    Well, let’s start crying together for the fate of the USAW (US Air Weak) & Co(wards).
    Are you joking Gen.? I’m sorry but I’m boring with, try something else.
    Russia is backing the legal regime of Assad. They are not angels but the others are Islamic dirts that we don’t want around. You should protect us from these Islamic dirts and not only you’ve failed but you are complaining about the others that are doing better than you. This is how cowards act so stop complaining and stop backing these Islamic dirts with our money.

  • AM Hants

    The US is accusing Russia of supporting the democratically, elected Government of a sovereign nation????? That is a crime? Should they be supporting ISIS/Al Qaeda/White Helmets or whatever name they go by today? Is the sovereign nation of Syria, anything to do with the US? God, those playing toy soldiers in the Pentagon, seriouslly need to change their script.

    • OneParticularHarbor

      I am an awakened U.S. citizen, and I am absolutely disgusted with what Washington is doing around the world. There are many more like me who are waking up too.
      The hubris of D.C. is astonishing, and will lead to its downfall. The death throes of a mighty dying empire are already among us.
      I now get all of my info from alternate media and Russian and other international sources…and of course from many wise commenters here on forums.
      Blessings and peace from the USA! There are a few of us good people here.

      • AM Hants

        Ditto and feel exactly the same, from the UK. So glad many of us are waking up to the antics of those we elect. Take care and blessings and peace back to you.

    The US is still looking for evidence of a chemical attack. Apparently the attack hasn’t taken place yet and the US is just insulting Russia as a matter of policy, not reality, until the US’s proxies have time and occasion to produce a chemical attack.

    And the US thinks Russia is destabilizing the region? Who else believes that?

  • Regula

    Great picture. Nauert even broke her authority and advertised a US propaganda “documentary” on the White Helmets. And of course without any acknowledgment that they are al Nusra with the addition of US paid helmets but no life saving skills.
