The war in Syria to stop is useless

The Syrian army said that the ceasefire is over again. At least it is declared by Reuters. The Syrian military laying blame for the renewed hostilities to the terrorist group, first of all, banned in Russia LIH and “al-Nusra Dzhebhat”. However, not without “mistakes” of the us military and their allies, who on 17 September struck a powerful airstrike by government forces in Syria near the city of Deir ez-Zor. Representatives of the Russian General staff noted that in such circumstances, the continuation of the truce is meaningless.

Once again the truce in Syria was announced on 12 September. It was possible after 15 hours of negotiations the Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov and gossekretar of the United States John Kerry in Geneva, during which the foreign Ministers agreed on a new plan to resolve the situation in Syria and has formed a package of five documents. They called for a cease fire and cooperation between the U.S. and Russia in the fight against terrorism.

However, until now these documents were never published. This is opposed by the American side. Apparently, one of the reason for this resistance is the desire of Washington to withdraw from the blow the whole antiacidos the opposition in Syria, including not only the so-called moderate enemies of the government regime, but in fact the real terrorists.

Of course, in the words of White House denies it, blaming the Russian side is that Moscow does not want to compromise and only supports Bashir Assad. However, Russia considers the government of the current President of Syria is quite legitimate, it is selected on a statutory basis. Therefore, at the invitation of the Syrian side, our country has placed their HQs on the basis of Humanim. As you know, Russian planes struck devastating blows against terrorist state ISIS (banned in Russia).

But the fight against the illegal “government” from the United States and its allies there are more questions. For example, airstrikes, American aircraft often inflicted on the peaceful Syrian people (however, in the same Washington accuses the Russian military).

To avoid such misunderstanding, Russia is constantly offering US to agree on a strict regime of strikes only in places of a dislocation of terrorists, which must first share intelligence. But Washington does not want to go. As a result, it comes down to the fact that under the strikes of the coalition aircraft, the United States increasingly fall to the government forces in Syria. Quite a glaring fact took place on 17 September, near the city of Deir ez-Zor. US planes allegedly planned to attack the positions of the “Islamic state” (banned in Russia). In particular, the aircraft wanted to attack on the tanks ISIS, CNN reported, citing a representative of the administration in Washington. All planes destroyed six military vehicles. But in fact, the blow was struck Syrian troops and in the end, according to the Syrian side that killed more than 60 soldiers and about 100 people were wounded. After that, the terrorist group launched an attack on an already surrounded by this city of the Syrian part. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that the Americans destroyed the key to the strengthening of the Syrian army, situated on the highest part of the Deir ez-Zor, which can lead to loss of the whole city and the destruction of 300 thousand inhabitants jihadists.

Washington admitted his “mistake”. But no more. No apologies before Damascus, nor to Russia he did not bring did not. Moreover, the US government announced the improvement of the situation in Syria, and the U.S. permanent representative to the UN security Council Samantha Power has accused Russia of hypocrisy and cynicism.

A rather strange statement, more like a farce. According to the defense Ministry of Russia, for the week of September 12, the cease fire in Syria was violated over 300 times, killing more than 60 civilians and more than 250 were injured.

Moreover, according to the chief of the main operational Directorate of the General staff of the Russian armed forces Lieutenant-General Sergey Rudskoy, the ceasefire in Syria is meaningless, since it is observed only by the government forces of the country.

Apparently, this statement did not go unnoticed in Damascus and gave him the opportunity to launch military action against the jihadists.

So who will win the war in Syria? Yet, according to senior researcher, Institute of Oriental studies Nikolay Sukhov, no. As this war is of attrition and neither side can boast that close to winning. However, the Russian HQs and squads of the Shiites from Iran and Lebanon, recently had a major support of the Syrian army and given the opportunity to gain control over Palmyra, and also to drive a wedge in the city of Aleppo.

But without a comprehensive agreement between Moscow and Washington, according to Nikolay Sukhov, to solve the “Syrian problem” will still be impossible.

However, while the United States is not going to make any concessions to Russia and, especially, Syria. For Americans more important than the first overthrow Bashir Assad, and only then engaged in prohibited in our country to ISIS.

So while the situation in Syria is stalemate.
