The war in Syria is developing in accordance with our strategy
The US strike on Syria did not envisage change of strategic balance in the region, Lieutenant General Kenneth McKenzie, US Forces Joint Staff Director, told reporters. “I don’t think we sought to change the strategic balance of the Syrian conflict with those strikes”, McKenzie said. According to McKenzie, all changes in the Syrian arena are made in accordance with the US strategy. Lt.Gen. McKenzie noted that Russians “acted professionally during the strike and that they did not threat the US and kept out of the military operation”.
Turkiston: Claims that everything is going in accordance with the US plans in Syria and that the latest military operations do not envisage strategic changes in Syria demonstrate that all nations playing this or another role in the Syrian theatre are acting in accordance with the US plans. Striking certain military facilities of the regime is an answer to Russia’s willfulness (which America also gave a certain role in this war) in order to “send a message” and to remind again who the master of the situation is. As after military intervention of Russia the balance in Syria changed in benefit of the regime, Russia felt itself as a triumphant and got rid of the bridle of the USA. Organizing the Sochi conference on Syria is one of Putin’s self-willed acts. Following the conference, Putin planned to form a loyal opposition. America aims to resolve the Syrian conflict only in favor of its own interests. The USA will not allow other solutions. It will never agree to take Russia even as an ally in resolving the Syrian conflict. Therefore, it is natural that the USA wants to teach Russia a lesson.
