US Drones Attack Syria’s Military
By Stephen Lendman
September 14, 2015 "Information
- On September 11, a publication called
Russian Spring reported US unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)
attacks on Syrian military positions - “disguised as an
airstrike on ISIS.”
Syrian journalists learned
details of what’s happening. Numerous civilians were killed.
According to Syrian military sources, covert US drone strikes
against its forces and positions happened before, part of
Washington’s phony war on ISIS.
On September 1, the
Washington Post headlined “US launches secret drone
campaign to hunt Islamic State leaders in Syria,” saying:
CIA and US Joint Special
Operations Command (JSOC) operatives “are flying drones over
Syria” - conducting targeted air strikes. WaPo lied claiming
it’s against “senior Islamic State operatives,” citing official

War plans were made years

change longstanding US hostility toward Tehran.
Regime change remains
official US policy - wanting Iranian sovereign independence
destroyed like what’s ongoing in Syria. Maybe Washington has an
Islamic State invasion in mind, perhaps aided by US air power.
America targets all

subservient US-controlled vassal states replacing them, a
nightmarish scenario for endless conflicts, mass slaughter and
destruction and possible nuclear war threatening everyone,
everywhere if launched.

In September 2014, Sergey
Lavrov said if US and other Western forces bomb Syria, “(t)here

troops…on the quiet to weaken the positions of Bashar Assad’s
He commented shortly after
Obama announced US plans to allegedly bomb ISIS in Syria - a
ruse, part of Washington’s plan to oust Assad.
On September 13, on
Russia’s Channel 1 Sunday Times program, Lavrov said “Russia has
information that the US knows the position of the IS, but does
not bomb them.”
Its actions don’t reflect
its publicly stated objective. “Analyzing (them), one cannot but
suspect…ulterior motives beyond the stated goal of fighting the
Islamic State,” said Lavrov.
“Some our colleagues among
the coalition members told us they sometimes knew where certain
ISIL regiments were stationed but the coalition’s command -
which is, obviously, the US – did not give them the permission
for an airstrike.” Washington “conspired towards goals that were
not declared ones.”
Its war on Syrian
sovereignty continues despite Western nations saying “they
clearly understand (ISIS) is the main threat in the Middle East
and North Africa,” not Assad.
“If everyone realizes
that, but many whisper it, fearing to say it out loud, it is
necessary to implement that in action.”
Lavrov explained Russia
will continue fulfilling its contractual obligations to Syria -
supplying arms, munitions and training, as well as humanitarian
aid. “These are no mysteries or secrets,” he explained. “Our
military-technical cooperation seeks to” defeat ISIS.
Washington uses mercenary
terrorists and its military might to advance its imperium - by
crushing fundamental freedoms wherever they exist, including at
home, complicit with rogue partners.
