The UN Security Council on February 20 found itself unable to reach an agreement on a Russian resolution draft that urges all parties to ensure the perseverance of Syria’s territorial integrity. It would seem that it would be no rocket science to do adopt a resolution that is perfectly logical from the point of view of international law. Yet, six members of the Council rejected it, and three of those have the right to veto. Those were the United States, the Great Britain and France, as for those non-permanent Security Council members – those are Ukraine (did anyone had a glimpse of a doubt), New Zealand and Spain.
Thus, it turns out that six states have openly opposed the perseverance of territorial integrity of a UN member state. The situation looks surreal since this step contradicts the basic principles of the UN Charter, and those six above mentioned steps have basically undermined the very foundation of this international organization.
The latest vote can only be interpreted as a straightforward encouragement of armed aggression against Syria, which pursues a single goal – to tear apart this war torn country as soon as possible. Of course, we are talking about Turkey, although this particular state or any other potential aggressor hasn’t been mentioned in the draft of the resolution. This Ankara is determined to occupy northern Syria to creation a so-called “safe zone” that will harbor terrorists, thereby making yet another step to the creation of Erdogan’s neo-Ottoman Empire.
It safe to say that the Turkish regime is prepared for an unprovoked aggression since has been changing pretexts for it a number of times over the last couple months. First we were told there’s a need to create a “no-fly zone” for Syrian refugees, then Erdogan was willing to rush in to protects Turkomans – a Turkic-speaking minority that has never been oppressed by the Assad regime, and once Kurds launched an all-out assault on the positions of ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra in northern Syria they have suddenly become the terrible Kurdish terrorists that are to be destroyed.
In other words, while pretexts change the course of action remains the same – Turkey keeps on supplying terrorists, shelling Syrian cites, which has already been documented on a number of videos, and sends its special forces that were silly enough to write about it on social networks – it’s all a part of the invasion.
It’s true that so far we haven’t seen a full-scale invasion, but it seems that we should be thanking Turkish generals and various political figures that are so far, thanks God, are not willing to provide unconditional support to the mad ideological projects of Tayyip Erdogan and his pocket Prime Minister, who has so far been playing the most sinister role in this story. The army has always been a massive supporting pillar of the Turkish state, therefore, even if it’s weakened by Erdogan’s repressions, military authorities are not exactly in a hurry to go to war with Russia and then confront the whole Arab world, that hasn’t exactly forgotten five hundred years of the Ottoman Empire oppressive rule.
But who else, could be interested in tearing the Syrian Arab Republic apart? It’s Saudi Arabia for sure, which has announced on February 13 that it’s sending its warplanes to Turkey for them to allegedly fight ISIS. Moreover, Saudi Arabia has repeatedly announced that it is going to launch a massive ground assault against ISIS, but only within the framework of the US coalition advancement. In the meantime Washington keeps on making contradictory statements about the possibility of such a step, first renouncing it completely and then saying that it would be ready to launch it in a matter of days.
Riyadh is hardly in any better position that its partner in crime – Ankara. The ruling clan has been facing one challenge after another over the last couple of years, since extremely low oil prices have produced a devastating effect on the kingdom’s treasury (last year’s budget was short of “mere” 98 billion dollars). Moreover, Saudi Arabia is engaged in war against Yemen, where it found itself unable to beat local rebels – the Houthis.
Yet it keeps on vigorously demanding the change of the Assad regime, while making claims that it’s prepared to get Syria invaded on most any day, no sweat. But it seems that these actions is nothing more than an obedient execution of the orders of the Western forces that exposed themselves in the UN on November 20. Among these states one finds the Great Britain and France that have already reshaped the Middle East in early twentieth century, and now are trying to do it again at the beginning of the twenty-first century under the US leadership.
To achieve those goals these states exploiting the desires of Tayyip Erdogan, that is craving to create a new Ottoman Empire, and the al-Saud clan that is after the creation of some of a “legal” Sunni caliphate that should replace ISIS. For this purpose in early January Riyadh announced the establishment of the Islamic anti-terrorist coalition composed of 34 Islamic countries that are allegedly assembled to fight ISIS.
Saudi Arabia would gladly settle with the occupation of the “Sunni” part of Syria. Those are the eastern areas that are occupied by ISIS, with the capital of the Islamic State -the city of Raqqa that Saudis are prepared to bomb and conquer with its special forces. While this plans remain purely hypothetical – since Saudi Arabia has neither means nor the right to intervene in Syria, if it could achieve it, it would never hand over these territories to the legitimate Syrian officials. But Syrian and Iranian politicians have made it pretty clear that any Saudi forces that are going to invade Syria will make their trip back home in coffins.
Now, after the UN vote on the draft of the Russian resolution, it is clear that Washington, London and Paris are cheering for Ankara and Riyadh to launch a frontal assault against Syria and Russia, which will significantly weaken those puppets and could as well lead to their destruction, which will allow the West to solve its geopolitical problems for decades to come.
The exact same tactics was used by the United States on the eve of World War II, when Washington and London unleashed the beast created by Hitler against the Soviet Union. Now the same trick is being played in the Middle East, while Saudi and Turkish authorities are being hinted that they are free to pursue all kinds of psychopathic projects as long as oil prices remain low, and Europe is now being attacked by the terrorist cells that have infiltrated it. It is no coincidence that NATO is officially declaring that it will not support Turkey in the conflict with Russia. Of course, they would rather stay behind and watch as others risk it all!
Moscow, it seems, is aware of those plans, since Vladimir Putin’s press secretary has already announced that the possible Russian-Turkish conflict is out of the question. The Western partners have also failed to steal the fruits of Russia’s victory in Syria by impose unfavorable terms of truce the agreement on which was attained in the course of discussions in Munich on February 11. As Vladimir Putin noted on February 20, the terrorists in Syria, have openly declared Russia an enemy and they are prepared to expand their operations in the CIS. Therefore, one shouldn’t expect that Russia would cease its anti-terrorist operations in Syria. Moreover, it won’t give up the struggle for the perseverance of Syria’s territorial integrity, since once the complete victory is achieved it will virtually bury all Western meddling in the region.
As for Turkey and Saudi Arabia, it’s time for them to think who is playing them any why.
