Endless US Dirty War Haunts Syrians

Endless US Dirty War Haunts Syrians

by Stephen Lendman

Washington’s claim about wanting war in Syria resolved diplomatically is pretense. Russia continues fruitless bilateral talks while US support for ISIS and other terrorist groups continues.

Endless war ravages Syria, US-orchestrated slow-motion genocide, initiated by Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, a neocon monster masquerading as a woman. 

On Saturday, Syria’s Foreign Ministry accused Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of supporting state terror, responsible for massacring civilians, providing imported death squads with military and financial aid.

Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Turkish forces operate illegally inside Syria, directing around 2,000 Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorist fighters, supplying them with weapons and other material support.

“This looks like another stab in the back” to Syrian forces and ceasefire efforts, she stressed - willful “provocations” to continue endless fighting.

On Sunday, Fars News reported “separate but coordinated” Syrian and Russian aerial attacks on Jabhat al-Nusra and Jaish al-Fatah in “Northern, Southern and Western Aleppo, inflicting major casualties on the militants.”

According to al-Mayadeen news, Russian warplanes destroyed telecommunication towers in northern Syria near Turkey’s border, cutting off its military and intelligence communications with terrorist elements.

Last week, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) said Israel is providing terrorists in southwestern Quneitra province with food. Its regime treats their wounded in its hospitals.

Netanyahu calls them “heroes.” Earlier reports indicated Israel supplies them with weapons and munitions - allied with Washington to replace its overwhelmingly popular government with pro-Western puppet rule.

Separate reports indicate scores of French special forces joined their US counterparts in northern Syria - on the phony pretext of combating terrorism, directly aiding these elements waging war on its sovereignty and people.

Now in its sixth year, Obama’s war keeps raging, prospects for peace nowhere in sight.
