DAMASCUS, Syria (PNN) - June 12, 2018 - In a huge weekend development which has gone largely unnoticed by mainstream media, the political wing of the Fascist Police States of Amerika-trained and supported Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) announced it is open to entering into unprecedented direct negotiations with the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad government over the future of the country.
The Syrian Democratic Council (SDC) is the political arm of the powerful alliance of mostly Kurdish and Arab fighters that make up the SDF, and on Sunday declared willingness to enter into unconditional talks with the Syrian government.
The surprise SDC announcement comes just days after a controversial deal reached between Turkey and the FPSA for the withdrawal of Syrian Kurdish forces from Manbij.
Syrian Kurdish leaders were enraged by the agreement, announced over the weekend, which allows for US and Turkish forces to patrol the northern Syrian city - though the Syrian Kurdish SDF wrested the city from ISIS in a major 2016 offensive. Turkey has consistently demanded Kurdish withdrawal from Manbij after President Recep Tayyip Erdogan invaded northern Syria in his non-ironically named “Operation Olive Branch” early this year, aimed primarily at annexing Afrin canton.
Increasingly, Amerika's incoherent policy regarding the Kurds and Syria more broadly has put the more than 2000 FPSA troops occupying northeast Kurdish heavy regions of the country in the middle of a Kurdish-Turkey-Damascus final showdown for the future of Syria.
Syria looks to be going the way of other major FPSA wars: an open-ended situation short of success in which officials simultaneously are unable to come up with a plan to “win,” but will resist any pullout so they never completely lose.
Both the Syrian government and Syrian Kurdish forces understand this well, and know that Syrians alone are the lasting stakeholders in the country - something increasingly obvious as the FPSA appears to be handing sovereign Syrian territory over to expansionist NATO ally Turkey.
A Syrian Kurdish SDC official further stated, "We are looking forward, in the next phase, to the departure of all military forces from Syria and the return to Syrian-Syrian dialogue" - in a reference to both Turkish and FPSA occupying forces.
Notably, President Assad issued an ultimatum to Syrian Kurdish militias backed by the FPSA: "We're going to deal with it by two options: the first one we started now opening doors for negotiations, because the majority of them [SDF] are Syrians. Supposedly they like their country, they don't like to be puppets to any foreigners," Assad said.
"If not, we're going to resort to liberating those areas by force. It's our land, it's our right, and it's our duty to liberate it, and the Americans should leave. Somehow they're going to leave," Assad added.
While it appears The Pentagon is now (predictably) selling out the Kurds to Turkey, Assad has consistently taken a pragmatic approach in dealing with the FPSA-backed SDF, reminding them that no foreign supporters could possibly have Syrian best interests in mind. "Either you have a country or you don’t have a country,” he said of the foreign invasion of Syrian soil over the past years of war.
Should SDC-SDF and Syrian government negotiations come to full fruition, this could mark lasting peace and the final exit of foreign forces, Amerikan troops foremost among them.
