CIA Director John Brennan admitted that he did not know whether after years of conflict in Syria, to regain the unity of this country. Such statement as transfers RIA Novosti, he made at a security forum in aspen, Colorado.
“I don’t know whether it will be possible again to unite Syria, whether it’s some type of a confederal structure with various religious groups that govern their parts of the country,” he said.
He predicts that some parts of the country will be able to provide themselves, while others will need external assistance”. However, he pointed out that “achieving peace in Syria depends on the situation in Iraq. On the question of Russia’s participation in the process of Syrian settlement Brennan said that Washington expects Moscow’s political direction. “I wish Russian was more working on the political front,” he said.
The Director of the CIA said that the United States is cooperating with Russia and explain that “the necessary political path to the future in Syria”, and we hope for Moscow’s influence for a political transition with the subsequent departure of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. “I think the Russians are serious in relation to performing a number of their obligations, whether this ceasefire or other efforts to reduce violence,” said Brennan. However, he added that he had not seen interest from Russia to the fact that, in General, is good for Syria and not for them. According to him, the armed conflict in Syria will not stop as long as this country is led by President Bashar al-Assad.
“The conflict in this country will not end until Assad is in power,” he said, adding that, in his opinion, a legitimately elected head of the Syrian state “lost all legitimacy”.
“Assad is not part of the future of Syria,” insisted the head of raspadaemosti, adding that many Syrians initially took up arms, as opposed to President. According to Brennan, while Assad is in power in Syria “people will die”. When speaking about Russia’s role in the Syrian conflict, Brennan argued that Moscow “follows (in ATS) their interests” and “seeks to preserve the regime (Assad) in power.”
Such revelations are quite obvious US response to developments in the battle for Aleppo, which is now developing in favor of the Russian-Syrian coalition. Understandably, not willing to leave Assad after the capture of the city especially to go anywhere will not be. Even now his rhetoric is quite different from last year, now he increasingly says that Syria must be cleared of militants by the military, in sharp contrast with last year’s peace parties associated with hopes for the Vienna and the Geneva process.
In response to this increased confidence in the Assad forces, the US hinted that if Assad and his allies will try to resolve the matter by military means, the United States will act to partition Syria in the interests of the groups that it supports. This applies both to the part of the “green” groups that have external channels of supply, and the Syrian Kurds, on which the US has obviously bet. Hence the message to Russia that the United States should put pressure on Assad and force him to abandon his ambitious plans and in General to force him to leave if the United States can not.
Here the problem is that the Russian-American deal on Syria is tactical and situational in nature and does not address the question of the future of Assad and Syria, and also the fact that the current White House administration soon to leave it, as very likely to leave his post and warn you, one side will not lead US to abandon the thesis that “Assad must uitie”, and on the other hand, the inertia of U.S. foreign policy will push the next administration to keep trying to succeed in Syria within the framework of continued conflict with Russia.
Objectively, the people there will die for a long time, when Assad that his hypothetical replacement of any orientation, even in a hypothetical situation where the Caliphate as a state is defeated, Syria and Iraq are waiting for years of the terrorist war, plus a very high risk of beginning/continuation of another war as the continuation of the current.The Kurdish problem will be reduced not only to the coming Kurdish-Turkish war, but also to the probable war of the Kurds against the Syrians that in case of successful development of the situation in the Central and southern parts of Syria may want to solve the issue of preserving the territorial integrity of Syria in the case of the Kurds by force, which in practice is already resulting in sporadic clashes Kurdish Syrians, Assad is supporting Iran and even Turkey, and Damascus, is not interested in creating a Kurdish state on its borders.This scenario is theoretically and practically possible if Moscow will be able to get from Erdogan’s declining support for Turkey’s “green” groups in Syria and normalization of relations with
Syria https://russian.rt.com/inotv/2016-07-30/DWN-V-sirijskom-konflikte-Erdogan. In the case of the departure of Assad and the Confederation of Syria, is not excluded and scenarios of chaotic decay in the spirit of Libya, when the pieces of the once United country continue to fight between themselves for external support and without much hope for the ultimate victory. In General, the potential for conflict in the region more than great and positive and negative for Assad scenarios, not to mention the fact that the Caliphate is all about their plans and just disappear from the political map, he is not going.
As US policy in any case precipitates changes soon after the election of the President of the United States, Russia is unlikely to make any big exchanges with the United States in the Syrian issue, limiting situational transactions and continuing to help Assad to improve his military position, which in the case of the battle for Aleppo has improved significantly. Of course, the United States also don’t agree to Moscow’s wish to retain/prolong the power of Assad in Syria for Moscow the desired conditions and to postpone the internecine squabbles in the interest of the defeat of the Caliphate.So when the Director of the CIA starts discussing what he wanted from Russia, we see the ill-concealed dissatisfaction, like the United States are now doing in Syria, but it is rather a problem of the next administration, because the current there is little that can change.
PS. And another interesting point related with the new edition of the cold war.
It is worth noting that in response to attacks from “unknown” to U.S. government agencies, including the servers associated with the pre-election program of the Clinton http://www.bbc.com/russian/news-36929521 and the unfolding scandal associated with the alleged involvement of Russian hackers for trying to make adjustments to the presidential race, followed by a statement of the FSB, which again is “unknown” attacked resources of the Russian state authorities.
The Federal security service of the Russian Federation in the framework of the protection of the domestic telecommunications infrastructure revealed that malware designed for cyber espionage on a computer network of some 20 organizations located on the territory of Russia.
The analysis found that the contamination affected the information resources of public authorities and management, scientific and military establishments, enterprises of the military-industrial complex and other critical infrastructure of the country. This indicates the target virus is spreading within a professionally planned and carried out the operation.
According to experts of the specified malicious software by the style of writing, the name of the files, settings of use and methods of infection are similar to software used in high-profile cyber espionage operations, previously identified as on the territory of the Russian Federation and around the world. The latest sets of this software are made for each “victim” individually, based on the unique characteristics of the attacked PC.
The spread of the virus by targeted attacks on a computer by sending email messages containing a malicious attachment. After their introduction into the system, the malware loads the necessary modules, taking into account characteristics of the victim”, and then capable of intercepting network traffic, it is listening, taking screenshots of the screen turn itself on web cameras and microphones, personal computers, mobile devices, record audio and video files, data keyboard, etc.
FSB of Russia in cooperation with the Ministries and agencies carried out a complex of measures to identify all victims of this malware on the territory of the Russian Federation, as well as containment of threats and minimizing the consequences caused by its dissemination.
Information the cyber war is in full swing and in our case, this is reminiscent of the cyber-attack on Iran http://rus.delfi.lv/techlife/detali/vzlo mat-celuyu-stranu-virus-stuxnet-okazalsy a-chastyu-plana-ssha-po-kibernapadeniyu-n a-iran.d?id=47076733 which stood for United States https://newsland.com/user/4296749241/con tent/ssha-ofitsialno-priznali-svoimi-vir usy-stuxnet-i-flame/4354782 and Israel. In this case, I think without the US there were, but of course in such cases, as indeed in the hacker attacks on Clinton, it is easier to accuse than to prove.
