U.S IN A BID TO RECONDUCT THE SYRIAN SCENARIO
* USA announced, on Friday 10/09/2015, it was largely abandoning its failed program to train moderate rebels fighting I.S.I.S and would instead provide arms and equipment directly to rebel leaders and their units on the battlefield trying, probably, to reconduct the Afghan scenario of the 80th’ in which American weapon, especially personal shoulder anti-air Stinger missiles (pic), turn the war in Afghanistan against the Russian and in favor for the Mujahidin – later the hotbed of Global Jihad and Al Qaeda . The Stinger anti-air missiles shot down, by the end of the war in 1989 about 300 Russian aircrafts .
The Pentagon said it would shift its focus away from training to providing weapons and other equipment to rebel groups whose leaders have passed a U.S. vetting process to ensure they are not linked to militant Islamist groups.
the strategy switch comes as the Obama administration grapples with a dramatic change in the landscape in Syria’s four-year-old civil war, brought about by the Russian military intervention.
The Obama administration is grappling with a dramatic change in the four-year-old Syrian civil war brought about by Moscow’s intervention in support of President Bashar al-Assad.
Also on Friday the Pentagon said it expected to hold new talks with Russia’s military on pilot safety in Syria’s war as soon as this weekend, as the former Cold War foes seek to avoid an accidental clash as they carry out rival bombing campaigns.,
** In the new American approach Turkey is a key player, similar to the role of Pakistan in the 80th in Afghanistan. The first to pay the price will be the Kurds seeking an independent state of their own. The new move also ensure that the war in Syria will last for many years ahead and will fuel the new cold war between Russia and its partners (China, Central Asia and others) and the USA and its allies.
