U.S. Seeks To Divide Syria And To Trigger New All-Against-All War - Russian General Staff

FILE IMAGE

The United States is seeking to divide Syria and to trigger a new large-scale all-against-all war in the country, Head of the Main Operations Department at Russia’s General Staff Colonel General Sergei Rudskoi said at the Moscow Conference on Global Security on April 4.

“The United States is set to divide Syria. It has been laying potential groundwork for a new all-against-all war,” the state-run news agency TASS quoted  Rudskoi as saying.

The clolonel general draw attention to a US attempt to establish a quazi-state with own armed forces on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River. According to Rudskoi, this move is unacceptable.

Rudskoi revealed that Syrian government forces had liberated a total of 113,000 km2 and 1,245 settlements. About 65,000 militants were eliminated during this effort.

“The Syrian government forces have liberated a total of about 113,000 square km and 1,245 communities from illegal armed groups with support from Russia and Iran. About 65,000 militants have been eliminated.”

He added that 6,500 hectares and about 17,200 facilities had been cleared from mines by combined efforts. Furthermore, over 260 UN aid convoys were delivered thanks to security assitance.

    US’ not accepting defeat may develop into WWIII.

    • jerry hamilton

      No. Russia would just take out a couple of aircraft carriers and America will back down.

      • as

        They only need to shot down a number of their advanced aircraft and destroyer.

    • Joe

      I dont think so… it is just a paper tiger .

      The moment Russia puts its foot down… US will back down and I tell you , US nor anyone is in any mood to to nuke war just for that illegal occupation.

      • Sakaramanga

        Russia’s foot is already down. As we all know by now, the US, as opposed to rhetoric, by no means are arming/using Kurds to defeat ISIS to end the conflicts in the ME., but to occupy North of Syria and Iraq and even South and Southwest of Turkey with (by using) Kurds ”and” ISIS both. They both have US weapons and supervisors.

        At first (like 3 years ago) I had thought Russia and US had agreed to save Assad but a smaller Syria, allowing RF to keep its base there too, and to form a Kurdish State which was not seen as a threat by Iran and RF (in good terms with Kurds and Israel but in bad terms with Turkey because NATO owns Turkey) but now they well know that this 2nd Israel (Kurdish State) will be the last step before Iran and RF’s defeat to NATO which US/Israel is determined to establish. This means SAA will never be able to liberate the whole Syria.

        If RF makes another strong move and shows US its determination, US would not do the logical thing and back down because US is not governed by sanity but only by the wishes of the Elite. Also Israel will never approve such a move (US’ backing down), they can even arrange false flag attacks.

        Wording was a bit complicated sorry.

        • Joe

          Fact is under the current situation that SAA is winning there is no chance at all US would be allowed to form a state inside Syria ..not with Russia/Iran/Hezbollah backing not to say Iraq.

          The only US justification is to control ISIS which everyone even a child knows is bs.

          So if Houthis can face off USA air power aka Saudi air power, what is there to tell us SAA cannot take on USA INSIDE SYRIA….note the words ‘inside syria’.

          Iran would not allow US to stay too and Iran would be the MAJOR force not Russia to determine if US is to stay. Russia has no right to decide for Syria i.e dividing Syria areas of influence. However, Russia is in no mood to compromise Syria with hostile (no more ‘partners’ or colleagues) USA to the detriment of RF and allies.

          So look at the cards.. what the US has to be able to stay INSIDE SYRIA besides their words of hot air they want to stay?

          Come on … Israel is a non entity with regard to the Syrian war. They are hard pressed with just tiny Gaza … to indulge or have any say in Syria.

          • Sakaramanga

            Israel is deliberately not making any large scale show of power to keep a low profile in a region where they are not wanted by anyone around. However rest assured they silently control a lot of things including ISIS, Kurds, and the US of A, and probably a number of islamic terror groups and more. But mark my words; even Russia can not afford to take on Israel alone.

            If US can not stay in Syria, they have plenty of proxies to do it for them, US still being in continuous supervision. ISIS is gone but there are a number of other Islamic groups + Kurds + even Turkey to do the occupation in Syria for them. They will never let it cool down for Iran’s sake, not after they came so close to dividing Syria. I say interesting times ahead of us. I really hope what you account for comes true though.

          • Joe

            Well you have your opinion of the power of Israel which facts on the ground does not show any of your assertions really.

            Fact is Israel is not a power to be reckoned with after Lebanon 2006 as they just do not have the manpower. Hence Israel has always depended on air power and for umpteen times wanted US to use their power to hit Iran. Meanwhile they have been crying wolf a thousand times. No one listen anymore .

            Israel could not even subdue weak Hamas in all the Gaza wars thus far .. check it out.
            So forget about the Israeli card for the moment.

            For your info … Turkey , Iran and Russia are now meeting to discuss about intergrity of Syria and will be more aligned to Russia than USA .

            The Kurds are not a card either… without the air power of USA they run very fast but very brave vs ISIS … so far not against Turkey or even SAA.
            .. and they have their future to decide if they continue to side US to take a part of Syria which will never happen.

            Like I said , US has no way of staying in Syria on its own power. US can bomb but will not stop the defeat of their ground forces. It is silly really to think Iran will ever allow US to stay in Syria !!! Impossible . It is like having a cancer right in front of your eyes if Iran allows USA to be in Syria .. impossible. Iran ALONE can easily defeat US forces there and take it from me, Iran is not scared of confronting US as shown in the past having captured US soldiers in the face of Us war planes threatening … (maybe an US carrier would have been sunk ).

            Air power is useless in the light of Houthis/Hezbollah warfare ….

            Hello to say Russia cannot afford to take on Israel alone is about the biggest joke I have ever heard.

          • Sakaramanga

            Huh. I read a comprehensive article abt the joke you heard, will send you if I can find. (independent and not NATO/Israel-friendly website, I never read MSM crap)

            Frankly; tho I dont agree, I hope you’re right.

            It is the opposite they regularly run weapon test and conducted military training. They can do so because they know people know they have nuclear and they have the west backing. If you don’t know they regularly run a raid on the ships around Gaza strip sea.

    Old news … known to everyone.
    Question is what are Syrian govt/Russia/Hez/Iran going to do about it.

    Allow it to grow , then big problem.

    • Barba_Papa

      Unless they think they can take on the US military directly, which I think is suicide, just as taking on Russia directly by the West, then I don’t think there is much they can do about it. Other then scheme and plot to offer the Kurds a better deal. Or let Turkey do the dirty work for them by attacking the Kurds. And the Turks would be easier to militarily or politically defeat afterwards.

      • Joe

        Actually funny . What makes you think US forces can defeat even SAA INSIDE SYRIA?
        not to say SAA has Russian/Hez/Iran support with unlimited fighters on the ground vs small US forces inside Syria and surrounded.

        Air force? come on , US is guiding SA attacking Yemen with all the air power and still lose .
        Are you to tell me that Syrian allies are weaker than the Houthis?

        For one , I do not think the Iranians are afraid of US and in fact inching to take on US ground forces inside Syria when the time comes.
        It has already been said .. get out or be forced out. is no idle claim and I do not know why you guys forgot.

        • John Mason

          Tend to agree with you and what is concerning about Russia is that they were aware of US motives 2 years ago and just sat on the fence watching and now that the US are fairly established they will be harder to dislodge.

          • as

            Well if you’re not aware we’re on the verge of nuclear war because of that. The other side is crazy yes but that shouldn’t be a reason to choose mutual destruction.
            I predict they’ll gradually strengthen the SAA itself and enlarging their sphere of influence in middle east. The one who can afford to wait were actually the RU and as we can see the US were time constricted to gain the upper hand.

          • Liberty57

            Russia needs to get away from Turkey and infact invade it and defeat the neo ottomans. aABIG war is coming soon and Russia needs control of the entrance to the Black Sea and also the land route over Turkey to move equipment and supplies for the soon Big war centered at the Euphrates Turkey is a BIG supporter of terrorism itself and Putin should watch out for blowback just like the USA got when it thought it could play with terrorists ISIS.. Remember FSA headchoppers are now back in Syria thanks to Erdogan. USA supported FSA head choppers too
            I wonder if they still do? Turkey USA in Bed. Its confusing at the moment but, better off Taking out Turkey and USA and Russia should have nothing to do with them .. Are we going to have WW 1 all over again

        • Barba_Papa

          The US has the means to plow over Syria, and that is just with conventional weapons. Do not confuse the performance of the Saudi air force, most inept army in the world, for what the US can do. If they really want to they can utterly destroy the Russian air defense and contingent in Syria. It will cost them, which is why they have refrained from doing so, but attack US troops directly and that line will blur. And without Russian air cover the entirety of Syria is free game to the US. And if the Iranians think they can take on the US on the ground they are utterly delusional as well. Which I doubt that they are, because if anything the Iranians have proven themselves very shrewd and capable players. As have the Russians. Which is why I think that this little scenario of internet revenge porn will NEVER play out. The Iranians will engage in small scale asymmetric warfare, supporting groups in East Syria opposed to the Kurdish/US alliance and the Russians will do their utmost to woo the Kurds over away from the US.

          Only Turkey can get away with attacking SDF territory and if need be (claiming accidental targetting) US forces as they are a NATO country. And the US needs Turkey a hell of a lot more inside NATO then they do the Kurds. Currently the US is playing a game of chicken with Turkey, daring them not to attack the SDF, or else…. But we all know the US will not kick out Turkey if it does invade East Syria. So if the Turks call America’s bluff it will cave. The same will not be the same if Russia, Syria, Iran and Hezbollah were to attack. This would be the very casus belli NeoCons are wanking themselves silly over.

          • Steve Bell

            How can the U.S. “utterly destroy Russian air defence…”? With what? Even the IAF has avoided Syrian airspace since the downing of an F-16 by a 50 yr.old S-200. Love to see how the U.S.A.F. handles Russia’s S-400, and how its bases handle an Iskander or Kalibr.

          • Barba_Papa

            The age of the S-200 missile itself is not the issue, its the command and control guidance that allowed it to intercept the F-16. The IAF also operates under different conditions as the Israelis are extremely averse to risking casualties because in the end they still have a conscript army. Its losses will be felt by the entire population. The Americans in contrast suffered thousands of them in Iraq and Afghanistan and easily bore the brunt of them because as a professional army its losses are not felt by the entire population. As for how the Americans are going to overwhelm the Russian air defenses, how the fuck would I know? I’m just an internet armchair general. Cruise missile spam of death followed by more cruise missile spam of death until not a single Russian thing is moving? Thing is though, this I do now, if you think that the Americans are going to sit back and do nothing while Russia and its allies are attacking American troops in Syria you really need to have your head examined, or talk to some other people other then the ones you’re talking to in your little echo chamber. Never assume the enemy is just going to sit there and take it! In the end the Russian contingent is small and the US can bring overwhelming force to bear.

            And please don’t bring up the Saudis again. Doesn’t matter how well you arm a chimp, a chimp will always remain a chimp.

          • Joe

            LOL .. you are talking rubbish as though US DARE TO TAKE on the Russians.

            Dream on .. so far facts said otherwise.

            Russia when openly said no… US obeyed.

            Tell me when that Russia said no , US dared ?
            even the one SU35 approached the two F22 , the two F22 quickly ran away.

            You do not see Russian planes running away so far have you?

            Know this fact. US soldiers are brave when they have COMPLETE air cover and support IN ALL BATTLEFIELDS.

            In Iraq where in Fallujah, the defenders fought .. US lost and in desperation US destroyed the city WITH air power.

            The point is which general will allow its soldiers to die sure death if surrounded in Syria with air power able to do nothing? No no matter how brave you are … which is not , no general will risk his soldiers lives. They have to go home to mums.

            (Asymmetric warfare) is the key word here. The Shiite militia in Iraq could open other fronts against the U$ in Iraq and local Arab militia in the area where U$ and SDF are occupying should also rise up as they did this week and caused the first casualties to the US coalition in that region.

          • Joe

            Asymmetric warfare does not have to be small so long your ground forces are well spread out which is impossible for air to target. Houthis deliberately burnt all the tanks and armoured vehicles they captured for the simple reasons these are easily tracked and targetted from the air.

            If in Syria… SAA has ll the needed manpower to wipe out the US forces … and they have SAM and manpads…to keep US planes away.

            The few F35s /F22s would not make much difference and cannot target foot soldiers. That is assuming Russia and Iran opts out which will never be the case.

          • Barba_Papa

            My point exactly. Don’t attack the Americans directly and give them the shooting war that they want, use diplomacy and subterfuge. Much less risky, far better chance for a good payoff. But it will take time and patience.

            Very well-said, indeed! Russians and Iranians do understand this and are patient enough to stay on this course. U$ wants very quick results but with asymmetric warfare here and there, diplomacy, subterfuge and patience, there will definitely be a good pay off for Syria and its allies.

          • Joe

            Let me ask you a simple question.

            A big chunk of your country is being taken away and be a cancer forever… what would you do . Are you afraid that a lot of infrastructure would be bombed or be afraid of US and tamely accept your country to be taken away EVEN IF YOU HAVE ONLY AK47s…

            What would you do …

            Yes, the Syrians will take up the AK47s and fight like the Talibans.

            But then alaho… Syrians have SAMs , manpads, battle hardened soldiers and havingi Hezbollah experience … how the heck can those planes stop the US contingent from being wiped out completely? Tell me how .

            Look Israel bombed Lebanon in 2006 until their entire ammo ran out and had to restock and yet did hardly much damage.

            Nato bombed Serbia for months and yet only 10% of Serbian army was degraded.

            Saudi Arabia with unlimited bombs , planes and US guidance .. is still useless against the Housthis… with NO SAM.

            To say US can utterly destroy the Russian air defence is an unproven statement and really stupid. Hello, for testing the Israeli F35s were hit with Syrian “birds” and know why Turkey bought the S400 ? Yes , against US planes .

            Let that be aside…. even SAA does not have Russian air defence …. Syrian air defence will be enough to keep US planes flying very far away and very high useless against foot soldiers without tanks but lots of ATGMs like the Houthis.

            A full scale attack on the East of Euphrates with manpads and Sam AS cover would have completely wiped out the US forces even before much damage can be done by the VERY FEW F22 or F35s…. if they can overcome Russian Su35s and S400 ie.

            Tell me which part am I wrong.

            Will anyone allow their country to be stolen just because USA said so?

            You can ask Mexico? The various Indian tribes? Or the Hawaiians?

            It's really simple, when the other side has overwhelming firepower and numbers on their side there's only so much you can do. And in any war there is a winner and a loser. Whoever loses has to eat humble pie and make sacrifices. Which usually involve giving up land. Check a historical atlas so you can see how much and how often borders have changed. Almost every time because someone lost a war. For more then 50 years Syria has been unable to recover the Golan Heights from Israel, even when Syria still actually had an army. What makes you think they will fare much better against an even bigger enemy with that pitiful remnant that they still call an army?

            The fate of East Syria will not be decided by evicting the US by force, but by diplomacy and subterfuge. Don't work harder, work smarter!

            These are great points indeed. The key word that Barpa made above is:

            (…Only a fool starts a direct shooting war with the US. Not when there are more discrete indirect alternatives…)

            Joe, I believe if the push comes to shove, the SAA, Hezbollah, Iranians, Russia and allied Shiite militia will fight with all their might but this should only be the last step, but they must now be prepared for that possible eventuality while avoiding direct war with the U$ and its allies. In the meantime, Russia should move some of its heavy missile systems like Eskander M missiles, anti-ship missiles and nuclear-powered subs as well as more SAMs to Syria and start making new air, sea and land basis in Iran and possibly in Lebanon as well.

          • Joe

            Well here goes … to demonlish you .

            “Well, the Palestinians only have AK’s against the Israelis. Why not ask them how well they are doing. Hint: Not Good At All!”

            That’s my point. Even with hopeless odds the Palestinians fought . What about Syrians with SAMs , Manpads, ATGMs, Hez kind of fightere Americans and Isreali feared the most to fight … not to say Iranians the masters in guerrila warfare that demolished Israelis forces.
            Get the point? So my point is Syrians will fight to drive off the US.

            ” Syrians are not even taking up AK’s to fight the various Jihadis in their own countries. That’s why the SAA is seriously strapped for manpower. Most Syrians are either dodging the draft by fleeing abroad, or hiding in the NDF, where the pay is much better. ”

            Come on … there are millions of Syrians still in the country and they would not allow the US to take their land./ You are off your points and logic here as to the number . COMPARE TO HOW MANY US SOLDIERS IN SYRIA?

            No existing Tiger forces and ONLY Syrians soldiers are enough to finish off the few 2000 US forces who are NOT battle hardened and fight ONLY depending on air power . Houthis will wipe these kind of soldiers very fast like they did to the Saudis /UAE soldiers. Come on … you think US soldiers can fight better than the Saudis in desert environment and not in overwhelming numbers like in Iraq? dream on..

            “Of course they can destroy the Russian air defenses. If only by sheer numbers, which they have, and by brute force, which they also have. If the Russian air defenses were that impenetrable then why has Russia backed down so often to American provocations? That’s because the Russians are extremely vulnerable. They are a long way from home, can be easily cut off and while they can dish out ultimately, if they really wanted too, they know that the Americans can overwhelm them.”

            You are talking pure rubbish here. I can tell for certainty.. Just one US plane like the Israeli shot down . the entire air force would be grounded.

            No argument about this as of now ….
            If the US forces are so great, why until now US air force dare not take on Russians and everytime the Russians said Nyet … US backed down.Recently in anticipation of US strike against Syria for fake CW attacks… Russia said .. even the Ships will be sunk .. after that what happened. No attack and US dead silent. If they are as powerful as you said , why didnt the US strike Syrian forces? and Trump did not fire the Tomahawks .. it is because they know their Carriers will be sunk.

            “The Americans will not make the same mistakes again ….”
            Stupid what mistake did the Israelis made in Lebanon 2006,
            What mistake is US making NOW IN Alfganistan where your entire air force can do nothing.

            Don’t give excuses… AIR FORCE IS USELESS AGAINST foot soldiers.
            and in Syria foot soldiers are enough .

            ” wanna know what you’re smoking because it has to be good. Syrian air defenses are pretty much non-existant. They have been utterly destroyed by this war and the Russians had to rebuilt it from the ground up by using their radars and networks. It’s their radars which allowed the Syrians to target that F-16.”

            Do not be stupid. What happened to the lots of missiles that Israel fired and most got shot down . Only a few go through. It is far more difficult to down a missile than a plane stupid.
            F16 is one that dared to go into Syrian air space and Israel has F35 , why did not they use that ? oooohh Syrian air defence will shoot “birds”

            You are the silly one here. So Americans planes will be the same .
            Syrian Sam can ensure Americans planes will pay ….

            I dont think they will dare to risk Syrians SAM alone . and even if the Sam does not work .. how to target foot soldiers like Hezbollah. ANSWER ME THIS

            Syrian SAMs network has been replaced when many areas have been recaptured.

            “Tell me which part am I wrong”
            Basically….., everything?”

            Well I am still waiting for your logic how to prevent complete distruction of the US forces with Hezbollah style attacks with SAM cover plus manpads plus ATGMs… US forces are not supermen .. they like the Saudis will run for their lives too.

            “t’s really simple, when the other side has overwhelming firepower and numbers on their side there’s only so much you can do. And in any war there is a winner and a lose ….”

            You are talking pure nonsense and rubbish. Even the American Indians with bows and arrows fought ..not to say Syrians who are winning against the Americans proxies and militarily superior to the US INSIDE SYRIA.

            NO.. YOU lose in every argument.

          (…US is guiding SA attacking Yemen with all the air power and still lose .
          Are you to tell me that Syrian allies are weaker than the Houthis?…)

          Good point!

          I have admiration on Netanyahu’s domination of the United States’ Middle East policy. How it was achieved must be studied thoroughly. Putin knows where the power lies.

          • Merijn

            We’ll see in the future if there will be any major shifts…..and differences

          • Merijn

            Goes back thousands of years…the Great Babylonian Confusion….or Deception…somethin’ like that….it Ends with the FED money tricks…that’s for sure….

        • alejoeisabel

          Netanyahu must plot saying ‘ how can I do Russia like I do the United States.’

      • Merijn

        Turkey is with Russia, Syria, Iran, Hezbollah & all others…very smart…so this article is basically Bullocks….Kurds better come to negotiate…

      • ranger

        They can make life difficult for the invaders, no matter where they come from. IED on Roads, Long Range Snipers and an occasional Rocket attack! Unless the invaders want to declare total WAR on the Syrian People!. I say BLEED THEM TO DEATH!! There in VIOLATION of International LAW.

      • Cheryl Brandon

        Guerilla warfare could be key;It must be a joint Iraqi/Syria/Hezbollah fight!

    • Merijn

      The NATO is in trouble…Israel forsees problems…Kurds are still waiting for the U.S. to come to their rescue….Trump wants to Pull out…Busloads of Headchoppers exported to Camp Idlib. It might be Deception all of this…hehehe

      • Lealeo

        Pull out after installing oil installation in Dier Az-Zour? Such US Bullshit. I heard many times that US would leave Iraq and Afghanistan long-long time ago. You know her games.

        • Merijn

          Then it’s gonna be Nuclear….a couple of Dead Russians & the shit will hit the fan….they will pull out because there are no other options… and the Middle East is Sick of the Americans and Israhell…what are they doing there anyway?

          • Lealeo

            I don’t think so. In my opinion, US will strenghten YPG by supplying more weapons and building stronghold. Meanwhile, the puppet controled by US’s remote control will trade with her by selling Dier Az-Zour’s oil. If not nuke war, so Syrian war will be prolonged. It’s just a paper-sticker in media, that US will leave Syria. Might be they will, but their interests don’t.

            Well, let’s see the next move.

          • Merijn

            The YPG….the longer they wait, the bigger the problems they create for themselves…I hope for Kurds that they have some intelligent ones that can explain that to the rest of’m…. where exactly was the U.S. When Turkey Attacked?

          • Lealeo

            So. What I told you in 10 days ago. Any proofs that USA will leave Syria? Indeed, that just BULLSHIT from rotten mouth muricans politician.

            You trust me know, dude?

          • Merijn

            Sure I always trusted you…but I’m continuing kickin’ them in the nuts Until these Brainless Psychopaths get the message…can take a while before they realise it…patience is a good virtue…I wish I had more of it…and it shows what type of complete morons we are dealin’ with….and can you imagine…that out of a Billion Spermcells those guys arrived first?!

      • ranger

        Trump is a LIAR” they Don’t want to pull OUT! Israel is CALLING the SHOTS. U.S. is a VASSAL State to Israel!. U.S. will not be allowed to withdraw FORCES!

        • Merijn

          Israhell wanted the whole Middle East, relations between Turkey, U.S. and Israel deteriorated..Turkey chose a different partner…very important change…or Turkey is fooling everyone.. no more Incirlik airbase… NATO fled to Jordan…first a little reorganising and unpacking stuff I guess.. sure the U.S. wants to stay….if Israhell asks to do so, they are always willing… but are they able to do so…? That is the question… it would be nice if the American Public & Army would speak out loud.. there were some Brave Generals in the Past that dared to

          • Cheryl Brandon

            The war on Terror was born in Israhell in 1979; Plan after that conference was to use terrorists to wage wars against peoples. This is a policy dating back to that conference in 1979.in Israhell.

      • Cheryl Brandon

        Indeed.

    • christianblood

      They should foment anti-SDF, anti-American local militia in the Raqqa area and other areas where they U$ and its allies are.

        Guerilla warfare as used by Hezzbollah against IDF in Lebanon.

    • Cheryl Brandon

      Guerilla warfare will be needed like what was used to get IDF out of Lebanon in the 2000.Syria/Iraq need to work togethter against USA soldiers and they need a Air defense system as well in the North Eastern area.

  • dinnedup

    Simple way is to use both Turkish and Iraqi land masses as brick walls against the logistical capacity of USIS coalition, then progress it with air-defence radar network harassment against the later’s air-force.

    As the U.S. seeks to intensity proxy warfare and partition operations against Syria (while securing oil resources through its proxies), the U.S. is also conducting joint military exercises with Israel in preparation for war against Lebanon/Hezbollah (and a potential broader multi-front regional conflict). Recognising U.S. moves to sabotage the JCPOA (a step towards confrontation/war), the foundations of a broader conflict should be evident.

    Indeed, as Israel continues its atrocities against Palestinian populations (and theft of Palestinian lands through an ethnic displacement/cleansing process), Hezbollah is also anticipating such a conflict and has recently issued statements regarding this:

    “I hope all Israelis will listen carefully to what I say: Netanyahu, his government and military officials did not correctly evalutate the magnitude this war will reach if they succeed to light its fires. What will be its extent, what will be its territory, who will participate on it, who will enter it… Netanyahu, his government and military officials do not know how this war will end if they start it…… I now call first all Jews except the Zionists to detach their considerations from Zionist calculations who lead themselves to their final destruction. And I call on all those who came in occupied Palestine believing the promises that they would find the land of milk and honey to leave. I call them to leave Palestine and go back to the countries from which they came so that they don’t become mere fuel in any war where would lead them the stupid Netanyahu government. For if Netanyahu launched a war in this region, there may be no more time for them to leave Palestine, and there will be no safe place for them in occupied Palestine…… the scale of the massacres committed by Israel against the Palestinian people and the peoples of the region, its partnership with Daesh and its open complicity in the project of partition of our region through its open and eager support to the secession of Kurdistan, all this will push the people of the region to render a capital verdict against them.” [Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah]

    As the U.S.-Israel-allied coalition pursue policies of escalation, their arrogance will likely be their undoing.

  • John Mason

    Russia has known about the US motives for some time, why bring it up now when something should have been done when the US set up it’s first base. Too late now.

  • Well, as it all seems the future of the world is to be decided in Syria.

    • gustavo

      No rally, this is just another war. The future will be decided with IRAN.

  • Eskandar Black

    Wouldn’t call this article news. It maybe news that a Russian General says this, but its not news to anyone else. Russia should encourage a law suit against the U.S./U.K./France in the ICC and demand a general vote on sanctions against these nations along with damages for person, property and historic destruction.

  • gustavo

    Discovering the cold water ? These Russian generals something make so stupid statements that make us to laugh a lot. In fact, the partition of Syria looks more a Russia-USA agreement that any other thing, why ? Russia-Syria-Hezbolah-Iran had the clear possibility to stop kurds (USA-puppets) at Deir-Ezzor, Al Mayadim, and AL Bukamal, and they DID NOTHING TO STOP them, and SDF got Omar oil fields.

  • ranger

    The Time to ATTACK the invading FORCE is “NOW”. Don’t wait till they have the ability to make a stand. Hit them NOW and HIT them HARD!!! KILL as MANY as Possible, that’s the only way to get them to leave! with many BODY BAGS!!!
