MESOP HISTORY : AFTER OBAMA ………….

Syria Analysis: Obama — “It Haunts Me Constantly” (But I Won’t Do Anything) – Vanity Fair

President Obama has used another “legacy” article, this time in Vanity Fair, to express his deep concern over Syria’s 5 1/2-year conflict — but to repeat that those who have advocated firm action to resolve the crisis “are wrong”.  In a fawning interview by historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, Obama is given the space to declare:

Syria…haunts me constantly. I would say of all the things that have happened during the course of my presidency the knowledge that you have hundreds of thousands of people who have been killed, millions who have been displaced, [makes me] ask myself what might I have done differently along the course of the last five, six years.

!KNOW BETTER WITH MESOP! – A TOTAL TRUE COMPENDIUM CLINTON & TRUMP – POSITIONS  ON KURDS – SYRIA – MIDDLE EAST –  IRAN –  ISRAEL

CLINTON VS. TRUMP ON KEY MIDDLE EAST ISSUES: PREPPING FOR THE DEBATE

As the first presidential debate approaches, here is a collection of quotations by Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, Republican candidate Donald Trump, and their respective party platforms on key Middle East policy issues.

SYRIA –  Clinton

“We have to support and maintain the ceasefire in Syria. And we should also work with our coalition partners and opposition forces on the ground to create safe areas where Syrians can remain in the country rather than fleeing toward Europe.” (March 23 Stanford speech)

“I do still support a no-fly zone because I think we need to put in safe havens for those poor Syrians who are fleeing both Assad and ISIS and so they can have some place to be safe.” (April 14 debate)

Trump

“Let’s say you get rid of Assad, you knock out that government — who’s gonna take over? The people that we’re backing? And then you’re gonna have, like, Libya?” (February 10 CBS interview)

“Assad is bad. Maybe these people [U.S.-backed Syrian rebels] could be worse.” (October 13, 2015 Guardian interview)

“I would have stayed out of Syria and wouldn’t have fought so much…against Assad because I thought that was a whole thing…So now you have Iran and you have Russia in favor of Assad. We’re supposed to fight the two of them. At the same time, we’re supposed to fight ISIS, who is fighting Assad.” (May 20 CNBC Morning Joe interview)

MESOP OPINION BY TONY BADRAN – Obama’s Syria Policy Striptease

Why hasn’t the administration done anything about Syria, and won’t? Because the Iran Deal.

By Tony Badran – 22 Sept 2016 – Tablet Magazine –  America’s settled policy of standing by while half a million Syrians have been killed, millions have become refugees, and large swaths of their country have been reduced to rubble is not a simple “mistake,” as critics like Nicholas D. Kristof and Roger Cohen have lately claimed. Nor is it the product of any deeper-seated American impotence or of Vladimir Putin’s more recent aggressions. Rather, it is a byproduct of America’s overriding desire to clinch a nuclear deal with Iran, which was meant to allow America to permanently remove itself from a war footing with that country and to shed its old allies and entanglements in the Middle East, which might also draw us into war. By allowing Iran and its allies to kill Syrians with impunity, America could demonstrate the corresponding firmness of its resolve to let Iran protect what President Barack Obama called its “equities” in Syria, which are every bit as important to Iran as pallets of cash.

22 Sept 2016 – Since Russia’s military intervention with bombing and ground “advisors” last September, analysts have pondered how many of Moscow’s troops are inside Syria. We now have our first good indication…thanks to Russia’s Electoral Commission. The Moscow Times reports:

The precise number of Russian military personnel in Syria is a closely guarded state secret, yet voting figures from Sunday’s State Duma elections suggest that more than 4,000 soldiers are stationed in the country, the RBC newspaper reported Thursday.Russians took to the polls on Sunday in State Duma elections, with President Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party increasing its overall majority to 76%. According to data released Wednesday by Russia’s Central Election Commission, 4,751 Russian citizens cast their votes in Syria, four times more than voted in the Duma elections of 2011. Russia’s military has been engaged in the Syrian conflict since 2015. Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=78393

23 Sept 2016 – President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said on Thursday that the US is airdropping weapons to the Kurdish militia YPG in northern Syria, but that American Vice President Joe Biden insisted he did not know about the operations. Erdoğan said he told Biden about two planeloads of arms delivered to the YPG in the border town of Kobani, as the two men met on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

He claimed Biden responded by saying that he was unaware of the incident.

“I told him I am aware of it,” Erdoğan said. – Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=78403

Is Obama Fast-tracking Mosul Offensive to Save His Legacy?

By Scott Morgan – 2016-09-22 – Scott Morgan is the former President of Red Eagle Enterprises. Based in Washington, he specializes in US Policy towards Africa focusing on Security, Assymetrical Operations and Business Development South of the Sahara.

(AINA) — Whenever a sitting President of the United States leaves office after his term of office whether its four or eight years the media starts talking about what will their legacy be? There are separate listings for both domestic and foreign policy. –   In January 2017 Barack Obama leaves office. So there are several issues in Foreign Policy that will be scrutinized by both Candidates. But there is one situation that seems to be the focus of this Administration to be resolved before the incumbent leaves office. What is a concern is this was an issue that many feel that Obama dropped the ball on. Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=78397

 

MESOP COUNTERINSURGENCY : The Terrorist “Wing” Scam

by A.J. Caschetta – Middle East Quarterly – Fall 2016

Modern terrorist organizations have managed to flourish despite their enemies’ attempts to squash them and have often done so by hiding in plain sight behind a nominal disguise. The most successful groups have achieved a kind of parity with the countries they attack by masquerading as complicated and diverse establishments for which terror is but one facet of their true—and variegated—nature. Nearly all terrorist organizations operating today have learned to conduct effective subterfuge by pretending to diversify.

On the rhetorical level, the illusion is advanced when a terror organization claims for itself an ancillary “wing,” “arm,” or “branch.” Most often it is either a “charitable wing” that operates orphanages and hospitals and distributes aid to the poor, or a “political wing” devoted to achieving the group’s aims through negotiation. In reality though, the group and its newly-sprouted wings are never separate but rather integral, interdependent parts of a whole. The pose allows them to prosper by legitimizing their continued existence as aid providers or embryonic governments rather than terrorist groups. Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=78416

 

MESOP SCANDALON : ALLE WISSEN BESCHEID – SYRISCHE LUFTWAFFE NACHTFLUGUNTAUGLICH

Russlands immergleiche Antworten  – Von  Klaus Dieter Frankenberger

In Syrien werden Kriegsverbrechen begangen – und Russland weist weiterhin jede Schuld von sich. Der deutsche Vizekanzler reagiert darauf, wie viele vor ihm. Dabei sollte er sich eine solche Abspeisung nicht bieten lassen.

Der Angriff auf den UN-Hilfskonvoi in Syrien sei das Schlimmste, was er sich habe vorstellen können, hat der Wirtschaftsminister Gabriel in Moskau gesagt. Das „katastrophale Bombardement“ sei „absolut“ unannehmbar. Die Empörung über einen Akt, der, wäre er vorsätzlich und gezielt begangen worden, ein Kriegsverbrechen wäre und der eine Art Auftakt zu neuen Angriffswellen darstellt, ist absolut berechtigt. Aber wer hat den Angriff verübt? – Volltext http://www.mesop.de/?p=78407
