After US Led coalition airstrikes in Syria’s Deir Al Zawr region which killed around 80 Syrian Soldiers who were fighting the ISIS, US department said “that was not our intention and we of course regret the loss of life.” The US “thought” they were hitting ISIS positions in Syria. Later the Syrian President Bashar Assad said that this cannot be a mistake as the US bombed the positions for one hour.
Later, a senior Obama official relayed through the Russian administration that they “regret” the loss of life.
The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, chastised Russia saying the United States was investigating the air strikes and “if we determine that we did indeed strike Syrian military personnel, that was not our intention and we of course regret the loss of life.”
When asked if the incident spelled the end of the Syria ceasefire deal between Moscow and Washington, Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said ”This is a very big question mark”
“I would be very interested to see how Washington is going to react. If what Ambassador Power has done today is any indication of their possible reaction then we are in serious trouble” Churkin told reporters.
Moscow said that the US airstrikes which helped the ISIS terrorists to overrun a Syrian army position near Deir al Zawr airport is evidence enough that the US is helping the terrorists in Syria.
“We are reaching a really terrifying conclusion for the whole world: That the White House is defending Islamic State. Now there can be no doubts about that,” RIA Novosti news agency quoted Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova as saying.
US however refuse the Russian claim saying they do not have “specific evidence” of the US support to ISIS.
It has been six years since Syria is engulfed in one of the most disastrous urban wars in modern history, killing more than 400,000 people and displacing half of Syrian population, with a huge refugee crisis in the region. It is surprising that the world’s most advanced powers who sit around the tables repeatedly for solving the Syrian crisis with the most sophisticated military technologies in the world, are not able to eradicate a mere 100,000 “street-thugs-turned terrorists” for six years, and simply watch in cold blood the slaughter of innocent people!
The conclusion which straight comes to the mind is that either of the powers on the round table, feasting on Syria, are secretly helping fuel this terrorism, or that they don’t want this crisis to end. “Sustained wars” has long been an agenda of world’s biggest weapons suppliers while Oil and gas play an important role in deciding who controls the world’s most geo- strategic regions of West Asia. No wonder America is on a War on terrorism which has increased Terrorism by more than 6500% in West Asia and around the world since the 9/11.
