U.S. Joins Al-Qaeda Efforts To Undermine Russian-Turkish Ceasefire Agreement In Idlib

Click to see full-size image

On March 17th, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave remarks to the press, and expressed Washington’s desire to undermine the Idlib ceasefire, agreed between Russia and Turkey.

“Additionally, we believe Russia has killed dozens of Turkish military personnel in the course of their military operations, and we stand with our NATO ally Turkey and will continue to consider additional measures to support Turkey and to end the violence in Idlib and in Syria more broadly.”

Thus, he alleged that Russia itself killed “dozens of Turkish soldiers”

Earlier in the day, Syrian Defense Minister Lieutenant General Ali Abdullah Ayoub was sanctioned by the US, for “perpetuating the violence and the disastrous humanitarian crisis inside of Syria.  His deliberate actions since December of 2019 have prevented a ceasefire from taking hold inside of Syria.  The obstruction resulted in the displacement of almost a million people in dire need of humanitarian aid in the midst of a cold winter in Idlib.”

Of course, the “bloody Assad regime” is, also, not the only one to blame – since plenty of guilt lies in its enablers – Russia and Iran.

“The Assad regime’s forces, backed by Russia and Iranian-supported forces, have been responsible for the continued bombardments that destroyed schools and hospitals and killed civilians, including medical professionals and first responders who were risking their lives to save others inside of Syria.”

Ayoub has been added to the department’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Person List and any of his assets subject to U.S. jurisdiction have been frozen. Americans are now generally prohibited from conducting business with him.

Earlier, United States Special Representative for Syria James Jeffrey said that if the Idlib ceasefire falls through, Washington and its allies may target Russia with sanctions, since it would be to blame for any such scenario.

“So our goal is to inventory here in Brussels with our European and NATO colleagues what are the military, the diplomatic, the economic, the sanctions, and the media and outreach steps we can take to encourage Russia and Syria not to do what we think they want to do, which is to break the ceasefire, push these 3 million refugees across the border, but rather to think twice.  If they ignore our warnings, if they ignore our preparations and move forward, we will then react as rapidly as possible in consultation with our European and NATO allies on what the package of sanctions and other reactions will be.”

Thus, the US is actively working to undermine the deal, and at the same time says that if the deal fails, Russia would be to blame and would be sanctioned for it.

It should be reminded that on December 17th, 2019, US Senate lawmakers, in a bipartisan vote, approved a $738 billion Pentagon budget, which included an authorization for punishing new sanctions on the Syrian government.

It also included legislation known as the Caesar Syrian Civilian Protection Act of 2019, the bill includes legislation authorizing sanctions within six months on Syria government officials, military and civilian leaders.

International energy companies seeking to redevelop Syria’s oil sector could be a target as well as any company that provides parts for aircraft, including helicopters. Even entities that loan money to the Syrian government could be sanctioned.

On March 17th, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also held a teleconference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The four discussed various topics, and notably actions against the COVID-19 and Idlib was also discussed.

“We found opportunity to extensively evaluate many topics ranging from fight against coronavirus and the humanitarian situation in [Syria’s] Idlib, to solutions to Syria crisis, matter of asylum seekers and Turkey-EU relations at the summit,” Erdogan said on Twitter following the summit.

“In this difficult process that we pass through at the regional and global level, we will operate diplomacy and cooperation mechanisms more actively, and we will resolutely continue our efforts to resolve problems as soon as possible,” he added.

    Trash talking is all it is, trying to stay relevant there. Soon the Nusra guys and friends will be pushed off of M4 and then the whole ballgame is over in Idlib, except for a little cleanup in aisle 6.

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Let’s hope so, but with insane regular ceasefires that little Putin arranges with the goat fucking pervert ErDOG, only strengthens them. The Russians should have bombed them on Highway 4 when they were digging trenches to block it.

      • John

        My take is the ceasefires serve to resupply and reposition SAA components. HTS is pretty much blind, save help from NATO. Once they get HTS and girlfriends to move around a bit and leave shelter, they get blasted, then come the offensives. It’s a cleaning process.

        The ceasefires also sever to slowly strangle Turkey into positions it cannot maintain and cannot roll back. This time they got themselves a Mech Division banged up trying to prop up the situation. It has also served to draw out NATO into very uncomfortable positions, from which they cannot extract themselves.

        I know many criticize President Putin et al but, they have played a very successful game in Syria, at the fraction of the cost their adversaries have shelled out. At the same time, NATO is being shown to be an openly paper tiger. There is more to this than meets the eye. It is a very complicated and prolonged push being asserted by Russia ……… and it is only a piece of their overall strategy. They just pushed the west and crew over the cliff with the oil position and a lot will change within the next 6 months to a year. This will include the removal of most of HTS from Idlib and a disgraced TAF slinking back across the border, after more beatings. My take on what is going on Evil. I wish well to you.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Yours and Mike’s points are valid. But in warfare any opportunity should be exploited. Americunts are fucked at home and not in position to do anything. Their soldiers are demoralized and the military supply chain in not working. The Turkeys were on the ropes and if the Russians, Iranians and SAA increase military pressure they will quit Syria like their Americunt masters. The Turkeys and their NATO masters are in very poor state to expand the conflict. Iran and China have both overcome the caronavirus and are good position.

      • Concrete Mike

        Not really, at every ceasefire, the syrian army gets increased capa ilities, be it air defenses, armour, helicopters.

        Rest assured, the turks will get whats coming to them soon. Now would be a great time to hit hard, as the west is distracted with a shortage of corona beer.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          I agree, that is what I said above Mike. This is the time to hit the Americunt arseholes and Turkeys as they are spread thin. The SAA put up unexpectedly strong resistance and there was a good chance of a coup against the Erdog, that is why he crawled to Moscow. Russia needs to bomb the scum to kingdom come. I was just reading that there are no spare parts being made for the F-16 as Americunt manufacturing is coming to a halt. This opportunity should not go to waste.

            The Fact is wherever the US mafia-regime goes, it leaves a bloody trail of destroyed countries, millions of civilians lying dead and many more millions fleeing refugees!
            In fact, It has been documented that America’s bloody regime-change wars have actually created around half of the world’s current refugees.

    Russia gives militants until end of March to withdraw from M-4 Highway
    By News Desk –

    BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – The Russian Armed Forces have given the militants in Idlib until the end of March to withdraw from all areas around the M-4 Highway (Aleppo-Latakia Highway), Syrian military media reported on Tuesday.
    According to the reports, all militants group, including the Turkish-backed forces, must withdraw from the M-4 Highway and its surroundings.

    If the militant forces do not withdraw from the M-4 Highway, the Syrian Arab Army, alongside the Russian military, will resume their offensive in the Idlib Governorate.
    Given the recent build up of Syrian Army troops in southern Idlib, it appears that they will be focusing on the two strategic cities of Jisr Al-Shughour and Ariha, which are both located along the M-4 Highway.
    The jihadist rebels from the Incite the Believers coalition have already rejected the Moscow agreement that called for the immediate withdrawal of all militant forces.
    So the likelihood of the militant forces withdrawing from the M-4 Highway by the end of March is not going to happen.

      I wonder why Putin chose April fools day for the deadline.
      I suspect Erdogan is going to use this time to rebuild the highway to suit himself and the terrorists factions, he’ll delete the junction at Saraqib and build a new length of highway between Sarmin and Nayrab, and on April first both Putin and Erdogan will be saying, ‘April fools day, you’re all sucked in, it’s now Turkey’s highway, not the SAA’s’.
      There’s going to be a lot of disappointed pro Russian supporters on April fools day, and the terrorists will be laughing their guts out.

    AlCIAda is a Americunt and Jew terror franchise dating back to the USSR era. But the Americunts will fail this time as the world is now multi-polar with growing hatred of the Americunts and Jew scum.

    Pompeo is a real state mobster. He will drag the US to uncharted new lows with his mafia ways

    • Zionism = EVIL

      But this is the time the Americunt arseholes are the most vulnerable and the resistance needs to expand the resistance to Syria where they are stealing the most OIL to support alCIAda. All their convoys are very exposed to IEDs and ambushes and the cowards are totally demoralized and can not be reinforced as US is falling apart. Soon they will have to mobilize troops as the Jew coronavirus spreads and kills more as they don’t have a public health care system and the moronic population is armed to the teeth and will start killing each other over toilet paper and food.

    Weird why the US and friends will not tell the tax paying electorate, they are using their taxes to support, train fund Al Qaeda/Isis/Daesh/White Helmets, or whatever they call themselves today. I wonder why?

    • Zionism = EVIL

      Wahhabi terror dating back to the USSR/Afghan era is a Americunt and Zionist franchise and a tool for proxy wars. However, this the Turkey sponsored headchoppers are not Afghans, but totally corrupt cowardly criminals and can not sustain the terror campaign for long without Americunt and Turkeys help. That is why this is ideal time for Russia to unleash hell on them.

    • christianblood

      Exactly!

      Just as the Trump administration continues to funnel millions of dollars to Syrian Al-Qaeda “White Helmets” US Hollywood furnishes them with Oscars and demands that the “White Helmets” be given the “Nobel Peace Price”.

America is racist and treats the world like Israel do to Palestine. The Jews, the priests of the goyim, want us to remember Hitler 80 years ago while today the Nazis are them.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    What’s that, the US are undermining the Turkish Russian agreement, lol, but why would the US object to Putin giving away the Syrian M4 highway to Turkey, the only person that should be upset about that is the person who really owns it, President Assad.
    The Russians beat up the Turks and made them agree to liberate the M4 as part of the victory deal, but now the nasty terrorists and nasty US are doing everything they can to stop the deal going ahead, mmm, sounds pretty suspicious to me.
    The Russians just made a deal with Erdogan about the M4, but the people who control 75% of it weren’t even part of the agreement, they were excluded from the deal totally, so how can Erdogan, who even if he did have control of the terrorists before the deal, have any control over them now, especially if he just abandoned them all in this new deal, mmmm, not much at all if that was really the case.
    And why hasn’t Putin already reacted to the gaping big trench across the M4, the one the loyal to Erdogan moderate opposition just made , that took a hell of a lot of work and more than a few days to make, and I’ll bet a lot of help was provided by Turkish owned bulldozers and excavators, couldn’t he or shouldn’t he have done something to stop them, a few warning shots, some smoke grenades, a measured response to stop them, I wonder why Putin didn’t.

    We’re not being told the real truth about this new deal, something’s missing, we get everything and the Turks get nothing, mmm, I don’t think so, the Turks definitely got something but what they got is still to be announced, or possibly even delivered slowly in small increments, not too much so as it would make any of the pro Russian supporters choke, but just enough to enlighten them sneakily and slowly.

    We get the M5 highway, Yipee, but the Turks and terrorists get the M4, boo, that’s the way it looks if you look at impartially, if you don’t you’ll probably say,

    ‘but the Turks are just happy the Russians didn’t annihilate them, that’s what they get out of the deal, and that’s why we get both highways because of that’,

    but that’s not being impartial, and not something a person like Erdogan would ever be happy with, he only ever shuts his mouth after he’s gotten what he wanted, and until he does he screeches like a baby.
    And right now he seems to be sleeping like a baby, it’s as if he’s just had a huge serving of mothers milk and is as relaxed and contented as I’ve ever seen him be, that mothers milk sure must have been mighty fulfilling.
