Skepticism in U.S., abroad over Kerry’s Syria plan with “untrustworthy” Russia

Skeptics in the U.S. government, European allies in the anti-Islamic State coalition and the main Syrian opposition, distrustful of Russia’s intentions, are questioning Secretary of State John Kerry’s latest proposal for closer U.S.-Russian cooperation against extremist groups in Syria.

Several U.S. military and intelligence officials called the plan naive, and said Kerry risks falling into a trap that Russian President Vladimir Putin has laid to discredit the United States with moderate rebel groups and drive some of their fighters into the arms of Islamic State and other extremist groups.

Some European members of the coalition against Islamic State forces have expressed concern about sharing intelligence with Russia, which they say has been an untrustworthy partner in Syria.

The current proposal, which Kerry hopes to conclude within weeks, envisions ways in which Washington and Moscow would share intelligence to coordinate air strikes against the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front and prohibit the Syrian air force from attacking moderate rebel groups.

Kerry’s State Department and White House allies say the plan is the best chance to limit the fighting that is driving thousands of Syrians, mixed with some trained Islamic State fighters, into exile in Europe and preventing humanitarian aid from reaching tens of thousands more, as well as preserving a political track.

In the end, according to two officials who support Kerry’s efforts, there is no alternative to working with the Russians.

“There are reasons to be skeptical, as with any approach in Syria, but those who criticize this plan as unlikely to work or flawed on other grounds, like working with Russia, have the responsibility of presenting something better or more effective,” said former White House Middle East advisor Philip Gordon, now with the Council on Foreign Relations think tank.Kerry’s critics say the plan is flawed, in part because as it now stands it would leave the Russians and Syrians free to use ground troops and artillery against moderate groups fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s forces.


They also say targeting the Nusra Front is difficult because in some areas its fighters are comingled with more moderate rebels.

“That underscores two basic problems that Kerry seems to be ignoring,” said one U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity. “One: The Russians’ aim in Syria is still either keeping Assad in power or finding some successor who is acceptable to them. … And two: Putin has proved over and over again, and not just in Syria, that he cannot be trusted to honor any agreement he makes if he decides it’s no longer in Russia’s interest.”

Kerry and his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, will have opportunities to meet within days in Geneva, Laos or both. But even if it is adopted, the plan is unlikely to provide quick relief for civilians trapped in a five-year-old civil war that the United Nations estimates has killed 400,000 people.

Kerry told reporters on Friday that Obama had “authorized and ordered this track” and that the plan would be based on specific steps, not trust. But even Kerry has refrained from voicing optimism, instead saying the effort was showing “a modicum of promise.” [ID:nL1N1A80Y3]

A European diplomat said Kerry and Lavrov have agreed to draft a map showing where the Nusra Front operates.

“The two sides would then, through joint analysis, decide who to target … by getting the U.S. in the same tactical room; Moscow would then have to guarantee that Assad’s planes stopped bombing,” the diplomat told Reuters. “He is, in his Kerry way, optimistic. But the devil is in the details, and we’re not convinced that Moscow is serious.”

British Defense Secretary Michael Fallon said the United States and Russia have an understanding to minimize the danger of aircraft interfering or colliding with each other, and that the British were covered by that understanding.

“But it certainly does not extend to any cooperation over targeting, and we would not welcome that,” Fallon said at an event in Washington.

Many U.S. officials are concerned that sharing intelligence with Russia could risk revealing U.S. intelligence sources, methods and capabilities.


Andrei Klimov, deputy chairman of the international affairs committee in Russia’s upper house of parliament, said that even if the plan is agreed upon, it would be for only a short time, until the next U.S. administration takes office. Obama’s presidency ends in January.

“I’m afraid Assad will expect tricks from the Americans,” Klimov told Reuters. “They have been saying constantly he’s an outcast … and now they’re about to tell Assad, ‘You know, please give us a day’s advance notice before you want to trash someone with your forces.’”

“Every time while talking to Assad we have to convince him, give arguments, additional guarantees. … We can’t give him orders, he’s on his own soil.”

Following a meeting with Putin last week, Kerry expressed concern about indiscriminate bombings by Syrian forces, but did not mention Russian violations of a cessation of hostilities agreement, although the CIA publicly has pointed to them.

“What’s striking is not what Kerry has said, but what he’s failed to say,” said another U.S. official, adding that Kerry had left out the “inconvenient facts” about Russian violations.

Robert Ford, a former U.S. ambassador to Syria and now a senior fellow at the Middle East Institute think tank in Washington, told Reuters that whether it was Moscow’s bad intent or lack of leverage, “it’s not clear to me that the Russians can deliver on their side of the deal.”

The Syrian opposition said it was concerned whether Russia could succeed in getting the Assad’s government to ground its air force.

“The (Obama) administration has put its bet on the good faith cooperation of the Russians, with so far very disappointing results,” Basma Kodmani, a member of the main Syrian opposition High Negotiations Committee, told Reuters in Washington last week.

    When are those 50 US state department war criminals going to be brought to justice for trying to do regime change in Syria?

    1. They won’t be brought to justice – remember Iraq …

      Under Belgium’s Universal Competence Law, Belgian legislators charged US Centcom General Tommy Franks, President George W Bush, VP Dick Cheney and Secretary of State Colin Powell with war crimes in Iraq. In 2003, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld threatened to pull NATO headquarters out of Belgium if the prosecutions commenced. Shortly after, the Universal Competence Law was dropped.

      On a side note, the lying, degenerate warmongering thugs in the West can kiss their regime change in Syria good bye. Putin is domesticating them.

        Putin is desperate for a warm weather port in the Med and Syria has provided that in the past. Assisting Assad is in Putie’s best interest.

          8. What a “coincidence” – not. Not any different than the Israelis documenting 9/11 – while it was happening.

          9. Quite a few people were documenting it “while it was happening”, you dumb retard. It was all over the news “while it was happening”. But then of course, every person with a camera in NYC on that day was a hook-nosed Zionist. Thanks for finally exposing that!

          10. Quit diverting and belittling the involvement of the Israelis in question you terrorist supporter.

            The “quite a few people” were news reporters from NYC and surrounding dispatched to document the event. They were not ready a head of time nor happy nor were they jumping of joy and dancing. The filthy, despicable, scum of the Earth Israelis were.

            5 men in a van owned by URBAN MOVING SYSTEMS were spotted by New Jersey residents following the 9/11 attacks dancing, laughing, posing for pictures, smiling and exchanging high-fives. A woman named Maria called the police. New Jersey police officer Scott DeCarlo told of how he had to arrest them at gunpoint after they failed to comply with his orders. History Commons has an excellent detailed account of events involving DeCarlo that day with news links.

            They were positioned at a perfect angle, “documenting” the attacks.

            DeCarlo then described what happened after the spies were dragged from their van. “When we removed them, one of the guys that was rather chatty said: ‘We’re not your enemy, we’re your friend. Our enemies are your enemies,’” DeCarlo said. “At that point they said they were from Israel. They kept saying, ‘Hey, we’re on your side.’”

            Rogue elements within the US “government” and MOSSAD did 9/11.

          11. Rudy1947 Avatar

            Dear Maria, bless her heart. Her description of the incident has one major flaw.

            “Like a few minutes must have gone on, and all of a sudden down there I see this van park. And I see three guys on top of the van, and I’m trying, you know, to look at the building but what caught my attention, they seemed to be taking a movie.”

            The tower was already hit and then the van parks and the men begin to film. How many other cellphone videos have been publish doing exactly the same thing AFTER the first place struck the tower.

          12. Not that you give a flying duck about the USA but truth of the matter is that CIA/MOSSAD did 9/11.

          13. Rudy1947 Avatar

            BS, AlQaeda did 9/11. I’m sure that’s disappointing to you, but the truth is AlQaeda did the job.

          14. Bwahahaha.

          19. Rudy1947 Avatar

            Underground explosions??? WTC Plaza, I repeat plaza, has interconnecting passage ways. When the towers collapsed, large amounts of debris is forced through the passage ways and will escape at openings or weak points in the structure.

            WTC 7 was weaken foundations due to fire .

            The rest of your statement is gibberish.

          20. Correct, underground explosions heard by hundreds (firefighters, police, civilians, anyone on the premise that day) and that, before WTC 1, 2 and then 7 collapsed.

            I know it’s a Plaza with seven buildings in total with an interconnection passage and several flour of underground – that says nothing. The “official” story says that the airliners jet fuel melted the steel and the towers collapsed. If that is true, why resort to sophisticated demolition techniques when we need to take buildings down (controlled demolition)? Why not just pour fuel on say the top floor of a 40 stories building and wait for it to collapse – all the way to the ground? WTC 1 and 2 were designed and built to withstand couple airliner accidents/attacks and burn for a prolonged period of time. There is simply no way the jet fuel ninety stories high (where the airliners hit) could have reach WTC 1 and 2 ground-core foundation, to weaken it and have the two towers collapse completely to the ground. Even if the high floors where the airliners hit weakened those floors’ supporting steel, the mass under would have supported the collapsing weight – instead, both WTC 1 and 2 went down all the way to the ground perfectly.

            WTC 7 – the official stories says that debris from WTC 1, 2 and fire took it down. Neither fire nor debris (not matter how big) could have taken WTC 7 that way. Only a controlled demolition could have.


            If it’s gibberish, prove it.

          21. Rudy1947 Avatar

            Fires were photographed at WTC 7 and those fires eventually took down the building.

            Controlled demolitions are to destroy a building, not the surrounding structures.

            The amount of jet fuel that ignited, burned and totally weakened the steel structure and a third of the building then fell on the remaining two thirds causing the collapse.

          22. – Never in history, has fire ever taken a building down that way.

            – Precisely: Controlled demolitions are to destroy a building.

            – You are repeating, ad nauseam, the “official” fed-story. The Laws of Physics contradict that fallacy. The structure of the WTC towers and any building for that matter is not only on upper floors. The top 15 (affected) floors could not have taken down the 90 (unaffected) floors below.

          23. Rudy1947 Avatar

            History doesn’t have too many examples of building of that ilk with large jets flying into them either.

          24. It does with fire (the cause of the alleged collapses).

          25. Rudy1947 Avatar

            Certainly does, but how many buildings in history prior to 9/11 were that tall and were threaten by such fast and large aircraft. BTW, which law of physics were you referencing?

          26. None. Still does not explain how WTC 1, 2 and 7 went down.

            WTC 1 and 2 – only the top 15 floors were affected, 90 floors below were unaffected. Fire and heat goes up, not down.

            WTC 7 – debris and fire from WTC 1 and 2 could not have taken it down the way it happened.

            All three building’s collapse defy logic, laws of physics architecture and construction engineering.

            The laws (not law) of physics: classical physics/mechanics that explains what we see (gravity, momentum, force, motion, thermodynamics, etc).

          30. They stopped wondering. It was far down enough for the Earth’s core to melt it all – there was lots of it so a big enough furnace was needed.

          31. They stopped wondering after it was driven out – read: stolen. They just wrote in the report that “it went too far down Earth’s core where it melted” – (laughing).

          35. Certainly not but 5th brought up the gold – pretty self explanatory.

            You, on the other hand, seem to have just found out about it.

          36. Rudy1947 Avatar

            The stories of gold at the WTC have been around almost as long as 9/11. The gold silver didn’t garner as much attention.

          37. Not sure what you mean with “stories”. Gold and silver were store in vaults beneath the WTC for various banks/companies. Based on what was stored vs recovered, lots of it went missing.

          38. Rudy1947 Avatar

            You ought to know what a story is, you’ve been telling tall tales here for a while. And yes there was gold in them thar vaults and the owners of the gold do not have you, or the general public, on their need to know list.

          39. Everything I’ve talked about, I’ve backed up. You not liking it is a difference story. In regards, to 9/11, you cannot debunk the Laws of Physics and engineering, architecture principles. Considering that they help us build out world up, they can certainly explain how it goes down.

            WTC gold – I highly doubt you had a clue there was stored gold/silver under WTC until yesterday, but anyway. It’s true that it’s nobody’s business other than the owners of the gold. The fact that the known stored value vs the recovered value (in one truck underground on 9/11) only adds more credibility to the 9/11 “official” (bs) story – in the sense that some knew it was going to happen and the gold was being taken out.

Aside from a divided Iraq, the Yinon Plan calls for a divided Lebanon, Egypt, and Syria. The Yinon Plan also calls for dissolution in North Africa and forecasts it as starting from Egypt and then spilling over into Sudan, Libya, and the rest of the region”.

      1. Soil pants, booger, piss, shit, etc – your choices of words continue to be a testimony of your inner self. Keep it up.

        ps – Three, four comments so far and no “mate”, “buddy”, “pal”, and smileys today?

        1. I can’t address you with “moron”, “degenerate” and “piece of crap” all the time. That wouldn’t be polite, pal. 🙂

          1. There you go. You must have had your first coffee. Back to your true self.

          2. I’ve already had three. But thanks for asking anyway, it’s very touching.

    There are so many ‘What If’s ‘ in everything they attempt, it would be much more wise to not make any more attempts and just stick to getting ISISies out of it first. Trying to kiss up to Russia was never the greatest idea.
    Bad enough that Erodgan wants to kill all the Kurds, who have their own factions which are most effective against the Daesh Mobs but seemingly can’t be told apart – Putin is following Assad’s line that anyone against him is simply totally criminal – along with all their women and kids.
    Which is the way they actually all think.

        Ok. I’ll just ignore them all … the savagery of some is getting to be extreme.
        Apparently, in other places, some have lured ‘Packmon-Go’ players into locations to do similar things, just not with rockets. NUTBARS are everywhere.

          Carol Malouf is the one who photoshoped beheaded Palestinian boy with fake ID as a 19years old Alawite, for money.
          “He was 19 so it’s moderate”.
          This is scary savagery, the amused smiles give me the chills.

      “Putin is following Assad’s line that anyone against him is simply totally criminal – along with all their women and kids.”.. is a must on YaLibnan;-)
      But you’re confounding with Netanyahu…humm.. or stupid Bush
      “If you’re not with us you’e against us.

      The Gulf-backed rebels of Nouriddeen Al-Zinki struck again on Friday after their forces brutally beheaded an unarmed teenager in Aleppo City earlier this week.

    “They also say targeting the Nusra Front is difficult because in some areas its fighters are comingled with more moderate rebels”.
    That’s irrational

    “That underscores two basic problems that Kerry seems to be ignoring,” said one U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity.“
    We know Reuters anonymity excuse.

      A target rich environment. While the Jihadists are confined to certain areas they can play their game and fight between each other and enrich the desert soil.

        The bugs that blew over the mountains last year in that ‘freak’ sandstorm didn’t exactly enrich the skin and lungs of Lebanese folks … maybe a few doctors from those who could pay for a bit of ‘help’.

    What does Lebanon expect for Syrian Christians, to be shopped off and have lawless Salafi Takfirs enter Lebanon????

    More confusion for Mr Kerry.

    “News broke out earlier that the Shura Council of Jabhat Al-Nusra, Al Qaeda’s branch in Syria, voted to cut ties with Al-Qaeda following increasing reports of an agreement between Russia and the US on targeting the organization in Syria.

    The terror organization’s spokesperson declared that it is not sinful if the jihadist group changed its name to avoid unnecessary bloodshed and that such an arrangement would come after many meetings between Al Qaeda’s leaderships in Yemen and Afghanistan.

    It is unclear if the rebranding arrangement would remove the group from the list of internationally recognized terror groups or negate the chances of being targeted by the US military.” almasdar

      Ohhh … bloodshed, but not unnecessary bloodshed. This determined by adept individuals in the field.
      Of course, akbarly logical. ;-))
