Syria under Iran and Qatar’s gas flames

In the United States, most people do not care about politics and about what happens in the world, but there is one big exception to this. When they feel a possible threat to their country, they come out of their homes and the streets and roads are filled with people as they care about national pride and are ready to sacrifice for their country. For Americans, economic benefits are the most important thing along with diplomacy. The United States has many military bases in many countries, especially in some countries of the Middle East. One of these bases is the alTanf base. Located in Syria, the US garrison at al-Tanf was built on the strategically significant trade route. The issue is why the US built the al-Tanf base on the trade route and developed it within two years. Gen. Frank McKenzie, the commander of the US forces for West Asia at the al-Tanf base, said in his interview to the CBS news team: “We are on the strategically significant Baghdad-Damascus highway to support our forces for counter-ISIS in Syria”. In al-Tanf military base, besides that the US forces are stationed, there are anti-Syrian government forces commuting to the base. Their responsibility is to fight against the Syrian government, protect the base and patrol along the high way, which had been once a trade routes some centuries ago. What are the US forces doing in al-Tanf base 1,000s km far from the US? What were the factors that led to the idea of war in Syria? Let’s come and find the answer in western media. I can bring part of the interview of Wesley Clark, a former U.S. Army General, who said that after 9/11, the US wanted to take down 7 countries within 5 years. Iraq, Syria, Libya, Sudan, Somalia Lebanon and Iran. He said, “Just ten days after the 9/11 attack, I went to the Pentagon, where there was Rumsfeld and the US joint commander. I was told that the US wanted to attack on Iraq. I said why? He said he got out when he heard this. According to Clark, the US attacked on Afghanistan later. Clark supported the administration’s War in Afghanistan in response to the September 11, 2001, attacks but did not support the Iraq War. He also said,”We are going to take out 7 countries in 5 years: Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and finishing it off with Iran.” Wesley Clark is not the only person who believes that the decision to go to war in Syria was planned a long time ago, but Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is also an American writer and analyst, in part of his article “Why Arabs don’t want us in Syria” published in 2016 for the first time in Politico magazine and website said that according to the Arabs, their war against Bashar al-Assad was started due to the peaceful protests of the people called the Arab Spring in 2011, but in fact, the perception of this war goes to the year of 2000 when Qatar raised the issue of a 1,500 km long gas pipeline worth $10 billion. The gas pipeline extends to the Europe through Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria and Turkey. To be continued … Muhibullah Mayar
