The US is not fighting ISIS in Syria. Together with its ally Saudi Arabia it is using ISIS and other Wahhabi terrorist groups like Jabhat Al-Nusra to wage a war of aggression against Syria so that it can take control of Syria and gain possession of the resources of the Middle East.
We may as well start with the US-led “anti-ISIS” coalition airstrikes on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions in the Thardeh Mountain in Deir El-Zour.
These airstrikes were an act of aggression against the Syrian Arab Army, which has been fighting terrorists from the beginning, whether these groups go by the name of the ‘Free Syrian Army’, ‘Al-Nusra Front’, ‘Fath al-Sham’, or what has now become the biggest phenomenon since the Taliban: ISIS.
This act of aggression was not just a violation of the ceasefire. It was an act of direct help for the terrorists, for ISIS above all.
The Thardeh Mountains are strategically important for the defence of the Queries Airbase. Their fall would also open up all of Deir El Zour to terrorist control. From there ISIS can spread into other areas of Syria.
US bombing of Syrian Arab Army positions was intended to give ISIS air cover for an offensive intended to enable it to expand across Syria.
The US not only bombed Syrian military positions. It also bombed bridges in Deir El-Zour province. It did so in the knowledge that the bridges were the terrorists’ escape route to Iraq.
After the bombing of the bridges this escape route has been closed. Terrorists who want to escape Syria for Iraq can no longer do so. They have to stay in Syria and wreak their havoc here, draining the power of the Syrian Arab Army and its Russian allies.
The blood of our Syrian soldiers and martyrs in Deir el-Zour has yet to dry. Yet instead of being ashamed of its lies the US claims it is “fighting ISIS.”
The US is fighting a war for the resources of the Middle East. It is not a war fought for democracy or for freedom or for the people living there. If you think it is then just look at who stands besides the US when it talks about “democracy in Syria” and “democracy in the Middle East”: Saudi Arabia, the US’s ally and friend, the greatest autocracy and the most monstrous tyranny in the whole Middle East and in the Arab and Muslim world.
Syria is the point in the Middle East where the gas and oil pipelines meet. It enjoys a key strategic position in the eastern Mediterranean. The Arab and Russian oil and gas industries would be greatly affected if the US and its Wahhabist allies Saudi Arabia and Qatar ever achieved control of Syria. It is for this reason that Qatar, the US, Israel, and Turkey, are all united against Syria.
Beyond Syria are Lebanon and Gaza, also with important gas resources, and Libya and Egypt.
This is the true reason for the US wars in the region. This is why the US and its allies constantly agitate for military action in Syria, itch to bomb Syrian airbases, and seek to protect the Wahhabi fighters and let them spread all across Syria until it is utterly destroyed.
The only ones who are really fighting terrorists in Syria, and who are fighting them on behalf of all humanity, are the Syrian people and their army, the Syrian Arab Army, and its allies: Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah.
