America’s Continuing Efforts To Conquer Syria

Must Read

The U.S. regime is focusing its Syria campaign solely on
its goal to steal Syria’s oil, and has handed off to its
UK partner the rest of the military and diplomatic operation
to conquer and replace Syria’s Government. That operation
is now under the direction of Ben Wallace, UK’s Defence
Secretary.

Wallace had won a seat in Parliament by
lying to the voters in his district and saying that he
opposed the 2003 invasion of Iraq and that he also opposed
the British Government’s effort to overthrow and replace
Syria’s Government, but now he has taken over and leads
the joint U.S.-UK operation to overthrow Syria’s
Government.

On 17 December 2015, MP Wallace’s blog
headlined “Statement
on vote about Military Action in Syria”
and he
said:

I have visited the Middle East and the wider
region numerous times and have often pushed for more
progressive solutions to current problems. I did not support
labour’s war in Iraq and I continue to oppose Israel’s
illegal occupation of Palestine. I have often publicly
spoken out against other Middle East Countries human rights
record. I am often accused by some of being too pro-Iran, as
it is my view that any solution to Syria and Afghanistan
needs to include Iran. As an MP I have visited Iran more
than any other parliamentarian and the last time I went I
did so with Jeremy Corbyn. Only now the UK and US seem to be
following my position on Iran and I welcome
that.

In other words, just when the U.S. regime
under Obama was softening its aggressive campaign against
Iran, Wallace likewise favored a more “progressive”
policy towards the Middle East. However, on 2 October 2019,
the London Times bannered “Diehard
ISIS prisoners must stay in Syria, says defence secretary
Ben Wallace”
and Wallace supported and endorsed the
U.S. regime’s threat (since late in the
U.S. Obama Administration) to go to war against both Russia
and Syria if those two anti-jihadist Governments tried to
slaughter all of the tens of thousands of Al-Qaeda-led
jihadists
who, throughout the U.S.-sponsored
regime-change war against Syria, had been increasingly
assembling together in Syria’s most heavily jihadist and
“anti-Assad” province, Idlib.

Then, on 12 January
2020, the BBC headlined “Ben Wallace:
UK ‘must be prepared to fight wars without US’”

and reported that, “Britain must be prepared to fight wars
without the United States as its key ally, the Defence
Secretary has warned. Ben Wallace said the prospect of the
US stepping back from its international leadership role
under Donald Trump ‘keeps me awake at night’. … ‘I
worry if the United States withdraws from its leadership
around the world,’ Mr Wallace told the Sunday Times.
‘That would be bad for the world and bad for us.’” (Of
course it would be bad for Lockheed Martin and bad for BAE,
and persons such as Wallace represent them and get elected
to Parliament only with their support.)

He stepped up
his regime-change-in-Syria stance, so that on 6 March 2020
the Forces-dot-net site headlined “Ben
Wallace: Syria Attacks ‘Tantamount To War Crimes’”

and reported: “After an initial meeting [with U.S. Defense
Secretary Mark Esper], Mr Wallace insisted the regime of
Syrian President Bashar Assad is intending to ‘flatten’
the province. ‘There’s an obligation on most of the
civilised countries in the world to deal with what is a
massively emerging humanitarian crisis in Idlib,’ said the
British Defence Secretary. ‘What is going on under the
Assad and Russia regime is tantamount to war crimes.’”
He was accusing Syria and Russia of “war crimes” if they
would try to exterminate the jihadists, who had formerly
been most of the proxy-fighters for America’s war to
overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Now almost all
of them were collected in that one province, Idlib, and the
U.S.-UK alliance was protecting them.

On 23 March
2020, Tass bannered “Militants in
Syria’s Rukban camp resell humanitarian aid to refugees,
camp escapees say”
and reported the testimony of
refugees from the U.S.-run camp on Syria’s Jordanian
border where aid that was being supplied by the U.N. was
received by Al Qaeda-led militants (jihadists) who sold it
to Syrian refugees who needed to bribe those jihadists in
order to be allowed to escape and return to secular
Syria.

On 24 March 2020, Voltairenet bannered “First
NATO-ME [Middle East] War Overturns Regional Order”

and reported:

President Donald Trump continues his
policy of military withdrawal from the “Broader Middle
East”. To this end, he is gradually moving his troops,
signing agreements with the forces against which they were
deployed (e.g. the Taliban) and negotiating the release of
his prisoners. At the same time, the Pentagon called on the
United Kingdom to take the lead in the operations of the new
Atlantic-Middle East Alliance and to supervise the
continuation of the “never-ending war” in the “Broader
Middle East”.

U.S. Defense Secretary Mark
Esper receives his British counterpart, Ben Wallace, at the
Pentagon. The “special relationship” between the two
countries is re-established. The “Five Eyes”
[an
outgrowth of the Cecil Rhodes organization for an
all-encompassing U.S.-UK world empire] are strengthened.
The United Kingdom takes command of NATO-ME (Middle-East)
operations.

Transfer of military leadership to
the United Kingdom

On March 5, US Defence
Secretary Mark Esper received his British counterpart Ben
Wallace at the Pentagon. The two men shared the command of
the new NATO-ME [1].

Ben Wallace then delivered
a speech to the Atlantic Council
[NATO’s main
propaganda organization] in which he confirmed the
strength of the UK-US alliance and the availability of the
United Kingdom. He also supported the need to try the
“dictator Bashar el-Assad” (sic), but the impossibility of
doing so given the support of the “Russian bear”. In other
words, Syria remains an enemy. …

On March 12
and 13, Ben Wallace visited Turkey and jihadi-occupied
Syria. He inspected the Turkish army observation posts at
Idleb and conveyed £89 million in “humanitarian” donations
to the families of the jihadists.

On 8 May 2020,
AlMasdarNews headlined “Mini
Cold War: US and Russia expand bases, buildup forces in east
Syria”
and reported that “the Russian military
recently expanded their presence in the Al-Qamishli
District, sending more reinforcements and establishing new
checkpoints at the military airport. The source said the
reinforcements to the Al-Qamishli Airport brought with them
heavy equipment, including tanks and armored vehicles. At
the same time, the U.S. military has also sent a large
number of reinforcements to their base in Deir Ezzor, with
the latest reports indicating some 300 trucks entering east
Syria from western Iraq.”

On 11 May 2020,
AlMasdarNews headlined “PMF
[Popular Mobilization Forces, anti-jihadists] accuses US of
transferring ISIS terrorists from Syria to Iraq”
and
reported “US forces have transferred Daesh (ISIS)
terrorists out of Syria and into Iraq, Mohammed Mahdi
al-Bayati, a key member of the Badr Organization, a powerful
Iraqi Shia political and militia group, has claimed.”
Furthermore: “intelligence gleaned by the [Shia and
secular, anti-jihadist] PMF led the Iraqi Army to launch
airstrikes against Daesh facilities in Mosul.” America was
trying to rebuild ISIS in Iraq, so that Iraq’s Government
would need to rely on U.S. forces in order to prevent ISIS
from taking over Baghdad (where the American Embassy is the
world’s largest embassy and distributes weaponry to U.S.
embassies throughout the Middle East). There is no way that
U.S. forces would allow ISIS to take Baghdad.

On 12
May 2020, Joshua
Landis tweeted
“‘My job is to make it a quagmire for
the Russians’ Special US envoy to Syria – James Jeffery.
He pledged that the United States will continue to deny
Syria – international funding, reconstruction, oil, banking,
agriculture & recognition of government.” America
steals Syria’s oil and destroys its infrastucture but
won’t donate to its reconstruction unless its secular
Government topples, and won’t even allow America’s
‘allies’ to do
so.
