The US-led coalition is reportedly preparing to deploy a second group of Syrian rebels it trained to fight against the terrorist group Islamic State. The first one humiliatingly refused to fight Islamist group Al-Nusra Front shortly after deployment.
The plan to fight together against ISIS is very logical and the Turkish government should take part in it, but apparently they have a different agenda and turn a blind eye to the fighters moving through Turkey into Syria and Iraq, Middle East journalist Karin Leukefeld told RT.
Foreign powers are meddling within Syrian political affairs not to defeat ISIS as they claim, but to get rid of a regime they don’t approve of to replace it by God knows what, Catherine Shakdam from the Beirut Centre for Middle East Studies told RT.
The narrative that the US is fighting Islamic State is a cover story, said Sara Flounders, co-director of the International Action Center. Americans created an enemy that justifies their presence in the region and terror against the entire Syrian people.
The US in concert with Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey supported the Arab Spring and Sunni extremists in a bid to bring ‘democracy’ to the region, Larry Johnson, a former CIA and State Department Official, told RT.
The root of all evil in the Middle East region is the US interventionist impulse, which has left a trail of disaster across the Middle East, in countries such as Syria, Iraq and Libya, Daniel McAdams from Ron Paul Institute told RT.
