When an armed conflict broke out almost seven years ago in Syria and the “secular” opposition, openly supported by the collective West, tried to overthrow Assad, many experts predicted that Damascus is a kind of prelude to the main war, the war against Iran. The logic of this reasoning is justified: Iran has much more economic and political resources in the region than Syria, and without its exaggeration, the historically tough position with regard to various kinds of Brussels and Washington is already a few decades away from the leaders of the Western world.
However, Assad is persistent, with his army and popular support (no regime can withstand such a massive war without support inside the country), as well as a certain warming in the dialogue between Iran and the US under the Obama administration (I mean the partial lifting of sanctions from Tehran) then shaded forecasts about the rocking situation there. It was even a false impression that the powerful country of the Persians for some time left the risk zone in this Middle Eastern history with a string of coups, the overthrow of “tyrants” and popular uprisings.
However, it was not there. At the end of December last year and in early January of this year, riots broke out in Iran, the wave of which was immediately picked up by the information machine of Europe, the United States and their allies. Yes, the authorities rather quickly appeased the protesters, and everything seems to have settled, but in fact it was only the first bell. More recently, Trump broke the basic agreements with Iran on the nuclear program, which means the automatic return of sanctions and further escalation between Tehran and Washington. That is, the Persians are again under attack – and precisely in the context of Syrian circumstances.
The seriousness of the intentions regarding the use of Syria as a springboard for a strike on Iran is indicated by the following fact, which has not been previously shown anywhere.
Do you remember the story of the French special forces who accidentally slept in the Syrian eastern province? The column of the French military was lost and accidentally stopped in front of a Kurdish roadblock at a government checkpoint. This, incidentally, was the first evidence of the appearance of the French armed contingent in Syria with real photo evidence. So, my sources say (and I’m inclined to trust them) that the French did not come alone.
Foreign Ministry said US forfeits all rights within Iran’s nuclear deal.
During an extraordinary meeting of the joint commission within the framework of the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (VCPD), which …
At the checkpoint, which is located on a ferry across the Tigris River (a bridge built by the Americans specifically to establish communication between the Kurds of Iraq and Syria), the French military officers were greeted by high ranks from the Kurdistan Workers Party on arrival, my informant said. In general, the situation is no way strange – because the French came to fight on the side of the Kurdish faction of the SDS. However, there is a curious nuance. Among multilingual polyphony, our informant drew attention to people who spoke the dialect of Iranian Kurds, in the area of his attention were about twenty such people.
Later another source confirmed that together with the French they drove a detachment assembled exclusively from Iranian Kurds – under the leadership of French military instructors, this unit must gain combat experience in Syria. The main question is: what for? The strategy of the West to overthrow the inconvenient regimes by the hands of the inhabitants of the country, which this regime controls, has repeatedly brought success. Remember Egypt, which was overthrown by the “people” and Mubarak. Remember Libya and exponentially destroyed Gaddafi.
Meanwhile, in Iran, it is the Kurdish national minority that can become the main destabilizing factor. There are not so many Kurds in Iran, on the one hand, – but the easier it is to work point-by-point.
On the other hand, 10% of the population is a force powerful enough if they are all one fist. And to unite the Iranian Kurds on the basis of their national ambitions and claims for autonomy – with competent PR support and with a battle core – it’s easy.
So, there are ambitions of the Kurds in Iran, PR support for them at the click of their fingers will provide Western and Arab media (controlled by the Saudis and Qatar) – the matter behind the battlebone. That’s it’s formation, it seems, including engaged in the French in Syria. The emergence of a detachment of Iranian Kurds can hardly be called a frontal accident or a sudden desire to fight the remnants of ISIS. The question is, where were they before? There’s almost no one to fight with. But in order to gain combat experience under the leadership of NATO experts, Syria is an excellent training ground.
Trump seems to have decided not only to disrupt the plan for the Iranian nuclear program, but also to try his hand against Tehran in a more risky way. The role of France and its military in this story is quite understandable: Macron, with all his quotes from Tolstoy, is nevertheless full of ambition and desire to assert himself as a great politician. And without a fight you can not enter into the story in the summary. The military alliance with Trump gives such an opportunity. But let’s see what Iran will answer, the guards of the revolution, too, are not bastards.
