Turkey wild card in US-Russia conflict over Syria aid

Turkey wild card in US-Russia conflict over Syria aid

Although humanitarian aid to Syria was hardly a top agenda item during President Joe Biden’s Europe tour, Washington has signaled that it might be ready for some sort of position shift over the matter, which remains a top priority for the Biden administration’s Syria policy.

I am hoping this will lead to peace. I can’t help but feel uncomfortable when I hear the US using words like “humanitarian aid” or “international aid” because so far these terms have always meant the opposite of what one would expect. Aid sounds like food for hungry children, but coming from the US, “international aid” usually means weapons to the opposition of the country that has hungry children. Let’s hope it’s different this time, but of the three parties involved, Russia is the only one I trust.

Mr. Mercouris previous efforts with Ukraine..Crimea annexed Feb 2014, Minsk Agreement Sept 2014. Reversal of what normal events would entail. Ukrainian loss of Crimea happened 1st then Minsk Agreement putting them diplomatically behind Donbass Laganst after. Crimea is the central issue, this effected stomping monster programmings to the point of almost Major War, with European Countries Germany and France acting as trustee for Ukraine. This order has effected World Order Schematically and is in need of corrective applications. Not to over mention the testamony of The Ukrainians in feeling cheated, isolated and entrapped. Primary Lanquage opportunities could also be adversarially… Read more »

The Ukrainians gambled and lost. Yanukovych, a democratically-elected President, had a choice between Russian and EU financing. He chose Russian as the best deal. The US wanted to antagonize Russia, so they spent $5 billion trying to force him to take the EU money. Once he’d opted for the Russian money the US and the Nazis carried out a coup d’état and chased Yanukovych out. The US, under the bitch Nuland, decided who was to be PM,etc. Then the US pressured the Ukrainians to threaten the two breakaway provinces of Lugansk and Donetsk. Implicit was the understanding that if Russia… Read more »

Crimea suffered 23 years of economic rot under Ukrainian rule. Ukraine essentially abandoned Crimea. Under the RF, economic conditions in the peninsula continue to improve, in spite of US/EU sanctions on Crimea. Although the idiotic usual suspects keep up their lies about how Russia annexed Crimea, polls taken after the 2014 referendum clearly demonstrate that the population of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol are happy with their reunification with Russia. Good account here from Researchgate: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/319496294_The_reunification_of_crimea_and_the_city_of_sevastopol_with_the_Russian_Federation/fulltext/59af4d06aca2720370736468/The-reunification-of-crimea-and-the-city-of-sevastopol-with-the-Russian-Federation.pdf

Not my understanding of events at all. Your post was O.K. up to the point, “then the US pressured the Ukrainians to threaten the two breakaway provinces of Lugansk and Donetsk.” Which is not true. The FALSE coup government installed in the Ukraine after the coup, decided to make speaking Russian illegal, banning the language totally. The states of Lugansk and Donetsk refused to follow that dictate and carried on in their own fashion. The FACT that both these states shared a border with Russia may have played a large part in their desires.The ILLEGAL Government in Ukraine, then decided… Read more »

re: “It MAY have been the Americans directive, for the ILLEGAL Government to act in this way, or it may not,” Nothing of political significance happens in the Ukraine that is NOT following US directive. I bet the farm on it.

Yes, but what are they going to do about Israhell’s almost daily bombing of Syria? Why doesn’t anyone step in and stop the Israhellis from causing more destruction in Syria and killing more Syrians?

Very good question. BUT according to Israel, they are not bombing Syrian assests but Iranian ones. Why is Syria so quiet on these issues ? They need to become much more vocal every time their border is challenged and their soil is bombed.

The destruction of 7 countries in five years,, P.A.C..,has certainly been a disaster for the world, including mine,the US funded Isis ideology also led to deaths in Europe too..Thanks to the likes of the Kagans,Bill Cristol and that Blinken idiot..It was the Russians that saved Syria and thwarted those NeoCon numb N**s crazy plans..

Mr. Maduro knew not to establish humanitarian corridors with this country. Demon Seed, consider this country stops stealing oil for the purpose of supplying humanitarian aid. Major chaos, maybe result of reverse symptons with Ukraine Crimea and Donbass Laganst. So Horus of Gold was introduced for Venzuala. Syria has a Great Leader too, will have to mix it up, Syrian Genetics must be preserved, ha ha. A great people. Good fighters getting 24 new engines for SU22s. They get to wear leather jackets with actual kills attrubutated? Glorious. How many Raptor pilots have even one kill? Or Su35. Syrians are… Read more »

Wokism doesnt apply to Erdogan. Tayyip is a feet firm on the ground Real Politiker. He fiddles with the Americans and Europeans as long as he can control the region and establish a greater Turkey. The Israelis lost their Eretz Israel but Turkey has (for now).

Biden meets Erdogan. Turkey will keep S-400s
