After the Syrian army managed to liberate Aleppo from the militants, the Washington administration decided to take extreme measures to save its reputation.
It has become known that Washington intends to reform the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and use it to take control over the city of Raqqa.
It can be argued because of a recent statement of the US-led coalition Colonel John Dorrian. On Thursday, December 8, during the regular press briefing he said that “Syrian Elite Forces”(SEF) are involved in the operation to liberate Raqqa from ISIS terrorists.” According to him, their number reached 45,000 people, 90% of them are Syrians. Colonel Dorrian also stressed that the “Elite Forces” are headed by “one of the most authoritative” representative of the Syrian opposition, Ahmed al-Jarboe.
Considering the fact that al-Jarboe was once detained in Damascus in a criminal case related to drug traffic, there is one logical question – how the White house could call him as “one of the most authoritative” representative of the Syrian opposition ? He left Syria long ago, and doesn’t consider it as his motherland any more. Nowadays, he lives in Cairo. According to the Syrian political analyst Nizar Bush, Ahmed al-Jarboe is committed to the ideology promoted by the radical organization “Muslim Brothers”. That is why he is financed directly from Qatar and Saudi Arabia. It was repeatedly stated these two countries stand behind not only the Syrian opposition, but also terrorist groups. Therefore, we can assume that al-Jarboe is cooperating with the radicals.
It is also completely incomprehensible, where Washington has found such a numerous “army”. It comes to mind only one idea – it’s the same FSA, which was originated by the deserters from the government army officers and soldiers. Nowadays, it is composed mainly of foreign mercenaries. In addition, there is an assumption that the so-called “Elite Forces” might be supplemented by the militants Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, who managed to escape from Aleppo.
It becomes clear that after they manage to unite under the new brand of “Syrian Elite Forces,” the United States will make every effort to ensure all over the world that this “army” is “moderate opposition”.
Against this background, the US President Barack Obama’s statement about the lifting of formal restrictions on supplying weaponry to its allies involved in the planning and conducting of anti-terrorist operation in Raqqa, is appropriate.
It is obvious that the current White House administration wants to rehabilitate itself as soon as possible. They decided make a bid for the support of militants who will fight not against terrorist organizations, but rather discourage further transactions of the Syrian army. Apparently, all their recent actions are part of the Pentagon premeditated “plan B”.
