Carving Out A Kurdish State Is The US’ New End Game In Syria

As one regional war ends, another conflict may soon begin.

    The war on Syria has taken many twists and turns over the past six years, but the conventional part of the campaign seems to be drawing to an end. Russia’s anti-terrorist intervention turned the tables on the “moderate opposition rebels” and forever precluded any chance that they’d succeed in violently toppling the democratically elected and legitimate government of President Assad. The militant promotion of regime change is no longer in the cards for Syria, and great advances have been made on the anti-terrorist front against Daesh, but that doesn’t mean that the US isn’t still a danger to the Arab Republic.

    Channeling the adaptive strategies of Hybrid War, the US changed its premier goal in Syria and is now seeking to geopolitically fragment the country to compensate for the failure of its years-long regime change operation, and it’s using the PYD-YPG Kurds as its battering ram for doing so. This proxy group leads the “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF) offensive against Daesh in Raqqa and is already in control of a broad swath of northeastern Syria. The Trump Administration announced last week that it will be providing heavy weaponry to the SDF to aid in their anti-terrorist operations, but this is just a front for creating the core of a conventional army in the heart of the Mideast, trained and advised by the US’ special forces.

    It’s probably for this reason and the belated realization of what’s really unfolding in the region that Russia has noticeably cooled in its support for the Syrian Kurds lately. President Putin said on Monday that Russia isn’t supplying arms to this group and that it maintains contact with them “even at least for avoiding possible collisions and situations that could create threats to our servicemen”, which is a lot different of a tone than the full-throated endorsement that Moscow’s representatives have previously given to the group in arguing that they should be incorporated into the multilateral peace processes of Astana and Geneva. Part of the reason for this change in attitude clearly has to do with the success of the Russian-Turkish rapprochement, but it can’t be discounted that an equally powerful driving motivator is that Moscow finally came to terms with the US’ new end game in Syria.



     

    American Ambitions

    Here’s what the US is aiming to accomplish nowadays:

    1. Construct A Conventional Kurdish Military Force In “Rojava”

    The US endeavors to transform the YPG militia into a formidable conventional military force inside the conquered territories of northeastern Syria, strong enough to resist any Turkish invasion or post-Daesh liberation attempt by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA). American advisors and military trainers are instrumental in facilitating this process, but it would be incomplete without the shipment of heavy weaponry which was just announced. The combination of elite instructors and state-of-the-art warfighting tools is expected to eventually result in the formation of an impressive fighting force which would be capable of holding its own, though with the caveat being that this would only remain so as long as the US’ three military facilities in Tabqa, Ayn al-Arab (known to the Western audience as “Kobani”), and Hasakah remain in place.

     

    1. Forge A “Decentralized”/”Federalized” Statelet In Northern Syria

    Despite the US’ public statements to the contrary, Washington is hoping to use its new conventional Kurdish military proxies as the vehicle for forging a “decentralized”/”federalized” statelet in northern Syria which could “legitimize” their geopolitical designs in the region. Without the aforementioned development of their armed forces, the US’ allies cannot succeed in staving off or responding to a Turkish invasion or an SAA liberation operation, both of which could be launched to stop this plan dead in its tracks. The US is therefore using the Kurds as a military ‘deterrent’ of sorts in safeguarding its adapted Hybrid War objectives in Syria, which are no longer about forcibly overthrowing President Assad but have morphed to become the creation of a fortified outpost in the geostrategic four-nation juncture point of transnational “Kurdistan”.

     

    1. Use The “Second Geopolitical ‘Israel’” To Exert Regional Influence

    The US’ ambitions to carve a “Kurdistan” out of the Mideast are akin to repeating the pattern of “Israel’s” creation in the sense that a foreign power is forming a proxy statelet out of the territory of other countries for hegemonic divide-and-rule purposes. This entity could become a terrorist safe haven for other anti-government groups – both Kurdish and otherwise— fighting in Iran, Turkey, Iraq, and Syria. Moreover, pertaining to the Arab Republic at the center of this article, the US plans to take advantage of the fact that much of Syria’s freshwater, electricity (hydropower via Tabqa), agricultural, and fossil fuel resources either lay within YPG-occupied territory or the areas that they covet, meaning that the abovementioned Kurdish “decentralized” or “federalized” statelet would wield disproportionate strategic influence over the rest of Syria if it were allowed to come into existence.

     

    Concurrent Processes

    There are two important processes unfolding concurrently alongside the US’ Kurdish end game for Syria, and it’s important to briefly touch upon them because it’ll soon be demonstrated how they could greatly contribute to the most realistic peaceful ‘compromise’ scenario between Damascus and the Kurds, however imperfect it may end up being in practice:

    * Nationwide “De-Escalation/Safe Zones”

    It seems inevitable that the “de-escalation” zones will eventually give rise to “decentralized” units inside of Syria, especially if they’re implemented nationwide, though the latter is exactly what Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov says that he spoke to US President Trump about during his visit to DC last week. According to Russia’s top diplomat, the two discussed how “this practice will be extended to the rest of the territory”, which additionally infers that more guarantor states will have to sign on to this agreement in order to supply the necessary “peacekeepers” for enforcing it, at least insofar as it relates to “Rojava”.

     

    * UNSC Res. 2254’s Mandate For “Constitutional Reform”

    This December 2015 document stipulates that Syria must reform its constitution and hold new elections within 18 months, meaning that the deadline for its implementation is next month in June 2017. The timeframe will probably be extended by an upcoming UNSC Resolution, but the main point here is that both Russia and the US agree that Syria must amend its supreme law of the land as a form of political ‘compromise’ in ending the country’s crisis. It’s naturally foreseeable that this could involve “decentralization” or “federalization”, especially given how the Russian-written “draft constitution” explicitly calls for the first one and ambiguously leaves open the possibility for the second.

     

    Scenario Forecasting

    Given the five factors elaborated on above, it’s possible to prognosticate the three most likely scenarios for Syria’s near future as they relate to the US’ plans for “Kurdistan”. The first two deal with conflicts and have been discussed at length before by various analysts, while the last one is original and presents what might be the only peaceful compromise ‘solution’ to this problem:

    * Turkey Invades East Of The Euphrates

    This scenario has been talked about quite a lot over the past couple of weeks ever since Erdogan openly threatened it, though the author was one of the first to predict this course of action in early March following the liberation of Palmyra. The guiding idea is that Turkey’s national security interests – and one can argue, even its very existence as a state – are seriously jeopardized by the US’ “Kurdistan” plans in northern Syria, and that unless Ankara can replace the ruling PYD-YPG militia with the pro-Turkish “Kurdish National Council” offshoot of the Iraqi-based Kurdish Democratic Party (KDP), then it would have no choice but to invade northern Syria east of the Euphrates in an attempt to take out what it views to be one of the most dangerous terrorist groups in the Mideast.

     

    * Civil War Breaks Out Between Arabs And Kurds

    If the Kurds aren’t stopped in “Rojava”, then they might carry through on their threats to create a Mediterranean corridor through Idlib and Latakia provinces, which would bring the YPG/SDF into conflict with the SAA and spark an actual civil war between Syria’s Arab and Kurdish populations. This could be offset through a territorial ‘swap’ of sorts such as the one which the author forecast in the latest edition of his Context Countdown radio show, which in that case would see the Kurds surrender any forthcoming conquest of Deir ez Zor and/or Raqqa to the SAA in exchange for Damascus recognizing their self-proclaimed statelet and granting them economic transit rights to the sea. If that plan doesn’t work, however, then the only alternative to the SAA waging a liberation war in the YPG-/SDF-occupied territories would be the final proposal explained below.

     

    * US Gains Control Of The Kurdish “De-Escalation” Zone And “Decentralizes”/”Federalizes” Syria

    The last scenario might be difficult to imagine at this point, but it’s based off of an adaptation of the two concurrent processes unfolding alongside the US’ “Kurdistan” plans. There’s no chance that the Kurds will agree to permit troops from the Tripartite of Russia, Iran, and/or Turkey to patrol their conquered territories if the “de-escalation” zone agreement is extended to that region, though they already have no such problem with the US setting up three bases there. It’s unrealistic to expect the US to pack up and leave after Daesh is defeated, let alone to take with it all of the heavy weaponry that was given to the SDF, so it appears to already be a fait accompli that the only peaceful post-Daesh “solution” in Syria is to eventually integrate the US into the “de-escalation” zone framework by making it the formal “guarantor” of “Rojava”.

    Correspondingly, it naturally follows that this state of affairs would be institutionalized through heavy international pressure on Syria to amend its constitution in order to implement “decentralization” or “federalization”, essentially making the US’ “Kurdistan” plans a reality though ideally in exchange for some sort of concessions from Washington and/or reliable assurances that it won’t immediately use this entity for destabilizing the region. In any case, Washington can’t ever be trusted, but this final scenario represents a last-ditch tradeoff to avoid either a Turkish invasion and/or an Arab-Kurdish civil war, with Russia using its influence to convince Turkey and the SAA to abide by the grand deal that it might reach with the US in exchange for Washington doing the same with the YPG Kurds. Granted, this scenario is only feasible so long as Russia lacks the political will to seek a military solution to this pressing problem.

     

    Concluding Thoughts

    It should be beyond the reasonable doubt of any objective observer that the US has switched its destabilization plans in Syria from seeking President Assad’s violent ouster to endeavoring to carve up the Arab Republic with “Kurdistan”, though it’s equally evident that Russia presently has no desire to directly stop the US’ scheme from succeeding. For a variety of reasons mostly related in one way or another to Moscow’s fear of becoming engulfed in an Afghan-like quagmire, Russia is prioritizing a political “solution” to the War on Syria even at the expense of some of its grand strategic interests such as stopping the creation of a “second geopolitical ‘Israel’”, taking consolation from the fact that it decisively contributed to the defeat of Daesh and at least obtained lasting post-war militaryeconomic influence in Syria.

    While Turkey, Iran, and especially Syria itself might feel uncomfortable with Russia reaching any sort of deal with the US over “Kurdistan”, none of them would probably have enough political will to unilaterally contradict Moscow’s wishes in undertaking military action against the prospective Kurdish statelet. Moreover, there’s no reason to believe that Russia would engage in any related discussions with the US on this subject without keeping its Syrian and Tripartite partners in the loop at all times, so whether they’re ultimately satisfied with the outcome of these speculated talks or not, they might still nonetheless be forced to accept that it’s the best possible result that could be hoped for under the circumstances of each of them earlier pledging to abstain from a military solution.

    The biggest challenge standing in the way of Damascus and the Tripartite’s desire to stop the “second geopolitical ‘Israel’” is that they each already allowed the US to go too far in its mission creep by setting up three separate bases, dispatching over 1000 troops, and sending heavy weaponry to the Kurds. Russia also demonstrated during and immediately after Trump’s cruise missile strike against the SAA last month that it has absolutely no desire whatsoever to enter into any scenario which could even remotely lead to an armed conflict with the US in Syria (hence the clear statement that it won’t shoot down any future cruise missile salvos), so it wouldn’t make sense for Moscow to abruptly reverse this policy trajectory and threaten to go to war with Washington in expelling the US from “Rojava”.

    Keeping in mind Russia’s wish to enter into a “New Détente” with the US, and the chummy relations that Lavrov and Tillerson seem to have cultivated with one another already, it appears ever more likely that both Great Powers are moving towards a strategic convergence of sorts in reaching a compromise ‘solution’ to the War on Syria. It’s not yet known exactly what it is that the US would give up in exchange for possibly securing Russia and its allies’ passive acceptance of a Kurdish statelet in northern Syria, but even the fact that this might prevent or at least delay a larger hot war from breaking out in the near future might be sufficient enough for all parties to agree to it in order to buy more time in preparing for a continuation conflict.

    Whatever the case may be and in spite of the author’s respectful disagreement with this approach, it arguably looks like Russia and the US are at the very least deliberating on a deal for “Rojava”, and that it could conceivably involve the US agreeing to become the fourth guarantor in any nationwide implementation of Russia’s “de-escalation” zones and then codifying its existing military position into a post-war political reality through Damascus’ acceptance of the Russian-written “draft constitution”. Again, this is not the optimal solution to the “Kurdish Question”, nor is the author endorsing this scenario, but at this point in time all indications point in this direction and it seems to be the most realistic proposal being pursued behind the scenes, although there are still a multitude of eventualities which could offset it.

      Gosh, I guess this will interfere with Iran’s plans to destroy the Middle East and take it over.

      It appears that Iran is enacting its “7 countries in 5 years” plan. It has terrorists operating in Iraq, Yemen, Sa’udi Arabia, Lebanon, Syria, Bahrain and Israel to destroy those nations and enable Iran to enslave the entire middle east.

        Since ISIS and alQuaeda are being destroyed by the USA, what you posted is clearly false.

        It stands to reason you hate America and will post any lie to try and undermine America’s work and therefore no one should believe you.

        It was apparently 21 years ago that you claim a plot to destroy “7 countries in 5 years.”

        Looks like it was a hoax.

        Somalia didn’t even have a government in 1996.

        If Israeli advisers recommended to Israel that it work to undermine and destroy its enemies, so what? Syria Yemen and Iran have all declared war on Israel and conducted a proxy war through their terrorist agents, Hezbollah.

        Even if true, “Turn about is fair play.”

        • tapatio

          Wherry, didn’t it dawn on you that you are treading hard on your own crank? When did the Clark interview take place? It sure as manure wasn’t 1996.

          Anyone bothering to Google the two documents will see EXACTLY, FROM RELIABLE SOURCES, that they are very real and even the quickest read will show that they are being followed as closely as any plan is ever followed.

          Your ONLY accomplishment is making yourself look like a fool.

          • James Wherry

            You’ve cited decades-old documents. Even with GEN Clarke, he said that the comment was made, when he arrived at the Bush administration – 16 years ago, Idiot.

            So much for “7 countries in FIVE years.” Your efforts to cobble together a non-existent conspiracy are simply a hoax.

    • James Wherry

      The stopper-supposes a non-existent plot.

      But why shouldn’t the Kurds KEEP THEIR LAND? They lived there before the Arabs. There’s no “theft” of land by the Kurds: IT’S THEIR LAND.

      • tapatio

        The Jews’ boot-lick, Wherry, applies the same sociopathic “logic” and lies that the Jews use in Palestine. The Arabs have been in that part of Syria for 12,000+ years. They are Semitic people – ARABS.

        The Kurds, on the other hand, emerged as a distinct culture between the 10th and 16th Centuries CE. The Kurds form a MINORITY in several countries and have NEVER been a state. The Kurds are a part of Islam and, since most Kurds are Sunni, are very open to becoming Western puppets – something that can’t be said of Shia Muslims.

        The violent and aggressive Kurds have been used by the West on numerous occasions as aggressors. In this case, stealing Syrian land to be used by the Kurds’ Western masters as the Rothschild-Bilderberg cartel sees fit.

        Obviously, the sensible course of action by Syria and its allies would be to finish off the West’s failed Wahhabi terrorists before eradicating the Kurdish mercenaries.

        • James Wherry

          What a Moron you are: you claim to support Islam and then deny it.

          The Arabs are the children of Abraham through Ishmael and Hagar. They came in at the same time as the Israelis and did not live in Syria that I am. Abraham left Ur of the Chaldees. I visited an-Nasiryiah, Iraq and can honestly say it’s true: Abraham is. It there.

          But thanks for admitting that THE LAND IS THE KURD’S LAND.

          • tapatio

            Seattle contains a large Chinese community. Does that make Seattle Chinese? HARDLY. Just because Kurds are ONE of the tribes living in a region does not make that region their property – no more than the Jews’ short term theft of part of the Levant makes that region Jewish.

            As to the bible-babble………ROTFLMFAO!!! Some bits of the Bible have been shown to be historically accurate. The rest, until there is EVIDENCE, is hogwash.

            Your racial drivel is just that…….DRIVEL. Arab and Semite are the SAME. The Khazarian Europeans you worship are NOT Semitic. I’m not going to bother looking up the history of Kurds, other than the fact that they didn’t exist until 1000 years ago. The SAME DNA lived in Nineveh, Damascus, Babylon, the Arabian Peninsula and Jerusalem. That DNA was very closely related to that in Thebes.

            As to who I “support”………..I support ANY tribe, religion, race, or stamp collecting club that wants to live in harmony with others. Which is EXACTLY what Islam did until the West developed a lust for oil.

            There is only ONE tribe on Earth that lives on chaos, war, hate, corruption and perversion. They have done so throughout their history. When they were Semites and now, as European Caucasians, they are the same disease sickening humanity.

            • James Wherry

              They were the original tribe. Why should I support the French/British division of the middle east, any more than I support the Sikes-Picot line?

              • tapatio

                The Heebs were the first of the Abrahamic cults. Many tribes, civilizations, cities and kingdoms PREDATE the Jews.

                Neither the Khazar Jews or the British or French or Americans have any right to “divide the Middle East”. The Middle East belongs to the Arabs, Persians and other Middle Eastern groups. NO Westerner has any right whatever to any say in the matter.

                • James Wherry

                  And Christianity was the second of what you call an “Abrahamic” cult and Islam was the third.

                  Yes, there are older religions – but not in the Middle East. The Philistines are dead and gone, as are their child-sacrificing cults to Moloch and Chemosh.

                  The Arabs had no right to steal the homes and lands of the 900,000 Jews living in 23 Arab nations since before the coming of the Arabs. Despite that, you glorify and justify the ethnic cleansing of the Jews by the Muslims.

        Obviously, Turkey’s actual opinion about stealing Syrian land to give to the Kurds is irrelevant. THE LAND BELONGS TO SYRIA – not Kurds from Turkey.

            Syria has been around CONTINUOUSLY for 3000+ years. The Assyrians conquered the short-lived Jew “kingdom” in 351 BCE. Syria has expanded and shrunk with its fortunes over the centuries, but it is one of the truly ancient nations of the world. Damascus was founded at about the same time THE CANAANITES FOUNDED THE CITY OF JERUSALEM – 3000 BCE.

                Nothing is evil and hateful as the spirits of the ZioNazi thug invaders of Palestine.

                Look at how they make monsters out of Jews and murder the ones that refuse.
                Terrorism: How the Israeli state was won
                Middle East – Tom Suarez on January 1, 2017

                Britain’s wake-up call regarding the Zionists’ indoctrination of children came on the 8th of July, 1938. That day, the Irgun blew up a bus filled with Palestinian villagers. Now, this was not the first time the Irgun had done something of this sort, but this time the British caught the bomber. She was a twelve year old schoolgirl.

                Teenagers, both boys and girls, were commonly used to plant bombs in Palestinian markets and conduct other terror attacks. Teachers were threatened or removed if they tried to intervene in the indoctrination of their students, and the students themselves were blocked from advancement if they resisted, even being taught to betray their own parents if those parents tried to instill some moderation. Jews who opposed and tried to warn of the emerging fascism were assassinated, and indeed most victims of Zionist assassinations—that is, targeted, rather than indiscriminate—were Jews.
