How The Win-Win-Win-Win Plan For Syria's
By Moon Of Alabama

The Syrian and Russian
operations in the northeast of Syria are going well.
Russian troops prevented attempts by Turkish
supported Jihadis to attack Manbij. Russian and
Syrian units now also entered Ayn al-Arab/Kobani.
Syrian government troops took control of the
electricity producing dam in Tabqah and some units
set up posts in Raqqa. Other units entered the
Conoco and Al-Umar oil fields north of Abu Kahmal
and east of Deir Ezzor. Some local tribe which
profited from the oil explorations there held a
small protest against the return of government
The Turkish controlled Jihadis made little
progress. Mostly Kurdish fighters are preventing
them from expanding from the area they are
informally allowed to hold. The Turkish command has
called up more irregular 'rebel' troops including
Jihadis from Jaish al-Islam who had once controlled
Ghouta in the east of Damascus. They had been
transported to Idleb after their defeat. A
video shows them on a bus traveling through
Turkey to reinforce the Turkish attack.
The Russian air force in Syria is preventing the
use of the Turkish air-force in support of the
Turkish attacks. Yesterday a Turkish F-16 entered
Syrian air space but retreated when some Russian
fighters appeared to hunt for it.
The U.S. is continuing its retreat
from northeast Syria. Yesterday a video
by a Russian journalist
showed the inside of one of a camps
that U.S. troops had hastily left. There
was still food on the table and the
Cokes in the fridge were still cold. The
view was a bit embarrassing. Today the
U.S. bombed a U.S./French military base
in Kharab' Ashaq near the Lafarge cement
factory shortly after its troops had
left it. The likely intent was to
prevent more embarrassing pictures.
Turkey still insists on a corridor of some 20
kilometers depth to prevent a PKK build up in the
area near its border. At that depth Turkey would
occupy the M4 highway which is a main economic
corridor in the northern area. Under the
Adana agreement from 1998 Turkey is allowed to
make temporary incursions at the border up to a
depth of 5 kilometer to fight any PKK concentration.
Anything beyond that infringes on Syria's
sovereignty and can not be tolerated.
Under the same treaty Syria is obligated to
prevent any PKK camps or training areas in Syria.
The U.S built 'Syrian Democratic Forces' are nothing
but the PKK with a few drafted Arabs mixed in. The
SNC will soon be dissolved into the Syrian Arab Army
and the autonomous Kurdish administration will be
removed. All that will alleviate the Turkish
concerns and remove its justification for any
occupation of Syrian land.
The mainstream borg is up in arms that Turkey
uses Jihadis to attack their beloved anarcho-marxist
PKK terrorists group. They have conveniently
forgotten the history of the U.S. war on Syria, its
arming of those Jihadis and its
pampering of al-Qaeda.
The U.S. did not betray the Kurds any more than
it betrayed Turkey and the Jihadis which the Obama
administration armed throughout the war. Those were
also U.S. 'allies' that were left hanging. Raina
Khalek made a good
video narrative that debunks much of the false
Syria narrative the main stream media is now using.
To prevent Congress from putting harsh sanctions
on Turkey, President Trump issued his own milder
ones that will not do any harm to Turkey's economy.
He has also sent Vice President Pence to talk with
President Erdogan. It is just a bit of show to limit
the fall out from the Turkish operation.
Everyone involved recognizes that this is a
win-win-win-win situation. Erdogan could show that
he was fighting against the PKK terrorists and
prevented their attempts to become a proto-state.
Trump could hold his campaign promise of removing
U.S. troops from useless foreign interventions.
Syria regained its northeast and the important
economic resources of that area. Russia gained
global prestige and additional influence in the
Everyone is happy but the PKK Kurds. They are the
biggest losers of this game but only in the
sense that they are back to where they started. They
had entered into a cooperation with the U.S. to
eliminate ISIS. When that was done they got greedy
and tried to rule over Arab land. It was always an
unsustainable situation. After the defeat of ISIS
the U.S. had no strategic reason to further pamper
them. Only some wannabe imperialists in Washington
DC and in Israel were urging to continue the
There are signs that the series of events was
preplanned and somewhat coordinated. There were
intensive talks between Russia and Turkey and many
phone calls between Trump and Erdogan. There were
also talks we do not know about. Syrian and Russian
troops were ready to enter the northeast.
It is likely that the plans of these actors
extend beyond the northeast and include a solution
for the Jihadi controlled Idleb governorate. It will
be the next area where some surprising co-operations
are likely to happen.
