On Friday 30 October 2015 the Obama regime publicly articulated a policy that has been in operation for more than three years: a group of US Special Operations Forces on the ground in northwest Syria, previously known to be operating incognito, were finally acknowledged and authorised to continue their nefarious activities.

The hypocrisy of the US coalition knows no bounds.

It is common knowledge that two major sections of the northern border between Syria and Turkey are open conduits through which terrorist recruits, weapons and supplies pass in one direction while refugees, the injured and oil passes in the opposite direction. In the far northwest of Syria, Jabhat al-Nursa, other al-Qaeda affiliated terrorists and separatists groups maintain a 120 kilometre wide open border with Turkey whilst a little further east, also in the north of the country, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) hold an open crossing of similar length. US special forces, aka. the Green Berets and the UK's Special Air Service (SAS), amongst others, were instrumental in opening up these breaches in the Syrian-Turkish border in early 2012, and remain there to this day, in order to facilitate the training, arming and funding of terrorists of every stripe in a bid to oust the democratically elected President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad.

Clearly Obama, and his most sycophantic vassal Cameron in the UK, are desperate to reclaim the current initiative from President Putin and the Russian Air Force who, in just over one month, since 30 September 2015, have disabled and destroyed more terrorist targets in Syria than the US coalition have done in over a year of counter-insurgency operations.

Naturally, the duplicity of the US coalition, masquerading as a counter-insurgency force whilst actively supporting terrorists, is mirrored in the southwest of Syria: both Israel and Jordan are providing extensive logistical support and safe-havens for rest and recuperation of the various al-Qaeda factions and separatists in the area. The notion that the insurgency forces in the southwest are a spontaneous uprising of disaffected Syrians seeking a different form of democracy, akin to the Arab Spring revolutions, is entirely spurious: Israel is keen to further destabilise Syria so that it can seize even more land in the Golan Heights, an area it has illegally occupied since 1967, and Jordan, a country of limited natural resources that relies heavily on foreign aid to balance its budgets, is simply another Western vassal in the Middle East.

Returning to the north of Syria, the Obama regime, and a myriad of its servile followers from both the West and the Middle East, have been actively supporting the terrorists just across the Turkish-Syian border, not only with fuel, food and recruits but with weapons, ammunition and tactical intelligence. That Jabhat al-Nusra, other al-Qaeda affiliates and separatists have been able to gain such a sizeable foothold in the northeast is testament to the support they have received, and continue to receive, from the US coalition. More importantly, a little further east, along the northern border, the US coalition and ISIL are known to have established a chain of re-supply and exchange depots where oil, plundered from Iraqi and Syrian oilfields, is used in exchange for anything ISIL needs to prosecute its sectarian war and the regime change in Syria as directed by their sponsors. In fact, if the US coalition were to withdraw all their support for the terrorists they have created, trained, supplied and mentored, the crisis would practically evaporate in just a few short months.

Nonetheless, the Obama regime have no intention whatsoever of withdrawing their support for this disparate group of terrorists as they obviously represent the best possible chance the US coalition have in meeting its primary objective, that of usurping President al-Assad.

However, given the earlier successes of the Kurdish Army, in re-taking large swathes of territory previously held by ISIL in the north and the likelihood of them closing the gaps in the Turkish-Syrian border, the Obama regime forced Turkey to join the coalition who promptly went on to bomb the Kurds. Just over one month later, at the request of President al-Assad. the Russian Air Force also joined the fray and they have since been waging an effective and targeted campaign against all terrorists in the country, much to the chagrin of the US coalition who have had their duplicitous policies exposed once again.

Thus, the latest tactic of the Obama regime, of openly declaring the presence of US Special Forces along the Syrian-Turkish border, is simply an attempt to deter Russian Air Force aerial bombardment of terrorist assets in the region. However, Obama's brief moment of pleasure, in thinking he had outsmarted President Putin, was short-lived: Russian Spetsnaz forces are now on the ground in northern Syria where they are conducting reconnaissance missions, directing fire onto terrorist targets and maintaining surveillance operations of the US coalition Special Forces.

That the Obama regime has been outmanoeuvred yet again by President Putin is not in doubt. What is in doubt, is how much longer the US coalition can maintain the charade that they are part of the solution to what ails the Middle East and not, as is commonly known and widely acknowledged, the main cause of the problem.

When the tyrant has disposed of foreign enemies by conquest or treaty, and there is nothing more to fear from them, then he is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader.
