Clinton, Petraeus: War Party in the U.S. Continues to Press Showdown with Russia over Syria

On Oct. 27, Gen. David Petraeus spoke before the annual meeting of the National Council on US-Arab Relations in Washington, DC, where he called for a major military escalation in Syria. Petraeus, a former CIA Director and former Central Command head of the U.S. Armed Forces, actually recommended that the U.S. impose a no-fly zone, safe zones for refugees and rebel fighters, and even use airborne and seaborne cruise missiles to knock out the Syrian Air Force.

The retired general freely acknowledged that such an action would directly impact the Russian Air Force operating in the same Syrian space, but he dismissed the danger of world war, claiming instead, in a matter-of-fact manner, that President Putin would simply back off and seek a diplomatic solution if America takes resolution action. That conclusion flies in the face of all competent intelligence.

Hillary Clinton, however, is calling for a very similar policy of escalating the US military engagement in Syria, arguing for the creation of safe zones along the Turkish and Jordanian borders. Until now, any major incident likely to lead to general war has only been avoided because of the deconfliction agreement still in force between Russia and Syria on the one hand, and the US led coalition on the other. But Clinton has repeatedly threatened to overturn that arrangement.

Recall that the US intervention in Syria is totally illegal, not having the endorsement of the United Nations Security Council, while the Russians have been asked in by the Damascus government.

On the ground in Syria, it is expected that, within a matter of weeks or months, the entire city of Aleppo will be back under Syrian government control. How Washington will proceed with its “regime change” policy, according to sources close to the Obama Administration, is still being hotly debated in the National Security Council.

Meanwhile, the focus for the U.S. has shifted to the battle for Mosul, in Iraq, which has been held by the Islamic State for more than two years. Military specialists expect the battle to take it back will be prolonged and bloody, with heavy civilian casualties. Some analysts have warned that ISIS fighters will slip out of Mosul before the intense fighting begins, and move to Raqqa, the Syrian "capital" of the so-called caliphate. However, the route between Mosul and Raqqa is an open field, and if a concentration of ISIS fighters were to make a run for Raqqa, they would be easy targets for air strikes and other targeting. Were they to succeed, it would only be because the so-called "coalition" forces are intent on reinforcing the ISIS stance in Raqqa against the Syrian-Russian forces.

In a speech in Charlotte, North Carolina on Oct. 26, Donald Trump warned that Hillary Clinton's policies could lead to World War III, as she “wants to confront nuclear-armed Russia with a shooting war in Syria”. While Donald Trump's actual motivations and intentions remain unknown (perhaps even to himself), his late-in-the-game statement reflects the alarm spreading among many experts over a strategic situation that has become more serious than the Cuban missile crisis.

The growing fear now is that Clinton's entry into the White House could be even more disastrous than the 16 previous years of permanent wars waged by the Bush-Cheney duo, and then by Barack Obama.
