The Terrorism Pretext: US-ISIS-Kurdish Nexus Preserves Occupation of Syria

Posted by INTERNATIONALIST 360° on 

It’s getting harder to ignore. The persistent ISIS presence in the Syrian desert only serves US aims to continue its military occupation and support for Kurdish separatism.

In March 2019, former US President Donald Trump startled Washington’s war establishment by announcing that the mission of “eliminating terrorism” had been accomplished in Syria.

Seven months later, Trump solidified his claims by celebrating the assassination of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi by a US special forces operation in rural Idlib, in the north of the country.

In reality, the US president had been angling to exit Syria for some time, and the absence of terrorism provided that excuse. Trump had promised his voter base to wind down expensive foreign military adventurism, and viewed the high cost of military deployment in Syria as disproportionate to the gains realized.

But while withdrawing US forces from various locations in Syria’s north and northeast, the American president was pressured to maintain a small number of troops in the oil-rich countryside of Hasakah and Deir Ezzor, and in the Al-Tanf base, an area crucial to Israel’s strategic interests as it is located on the border with of Iraq and Jordan, and on the hypothetical road that connects Tehran to Beirut.

Syria and US War Crimes: The Reckoning is Coming

US plundering oilfields

The history of the war against Syria by the US and UK, Israel and their allies is well-known, the cruel sanctions, the aerial bombings, the missile attacks, the assassinations, the torture, the illegal occupation of the Golan Heights by Israel with US support, and, finally, the US invasion of Syria that began in 2015 with US special forces raids into its territory on a number of occasions that year and 2016 and the formal entry of US forces on March 8, 2017. Their invasion has continued to this day.

During the summer of 2017 US forces laid waste the city of Raqqa, Their carpet bombing of the city, their heavy artillery strikes and use of white phosphorous shells, banned under international law, killed hundreds of civilians, and today Raqqa lies in ruins.  Their terrorist allies laid waste Aleppo, Damascus and numerous other cities and towns and villages with a savagery as common to US trained groups, as it is to the US forces themselves.

Stealing Syrian oil exposes US nature as a robber

By Lu Xue

 Last week, the US conducted fresh rounds of air strikes in Syria, and meanwhile, its efforts to steal Syria’s oil have come to a new high. The US wants to be the world’s police, but its practices expose that the country is merely a global hooligan, bully, and robber.

 The US occupation forces on Monday brought out 123 tankers loaded with Syrian oil from al-Jazeera fields toward Iraqi lands, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency. The report said that the US occupation forces on August 21 transported a convoy of 137 tankers filled with stolen oil to their bases in Iraq. On August 8, the Syrian Oil Ministry said that the US and its mercenaries were stealing an average of 66,000 barrels of oil per day in Syria, about 80 percent of Syria’s daily oil production.As a matter of fact, the US has been stealing Syria’s oil for several years. But now, in the context of factors such as the ongoing Ukraine crisis holding oil prices near their highest levels in years, the US can gain far more from stealing Syria’s oil

. „By doing so, Washington hopes to use resources obtained in war to support that war – to sustain its military operations and expenditures in Syria and even the entire Middle East,“ Tian Wenlin, a research fellow at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, told the Global Times, „In this way, the US also wants to weaken the incumbent Syrian government economically

.“Syria’s economy is now in a state of plight. After more than a decade of war, it has retrogressed to what it was like decades ago, with severe problems such as currency devaluation and shortages of food and energy. The military efforts by the US and the West have not defeated the administration of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, but the current economic crisis puts Syria in a quite challenging situation. As oil is a major pillar of Syria’s economy, by stealing it, the US is actually attempting to worsen the Middle Eastern country’s economy and undermine local people’s livelihoods. In this way, Washington intends to overthrow the current Syrian governmen

t.But to a larger degree, the US‘ violations of Syria’s sovereignty and plundering of the Middle Eastern country’s resources are for the sake of its own interests, that is, to advance more economic gains.


US Troops Smuggle 89 Tankers of Stolen Syrian Oil into Iraq

The US occupation forces in Syria have looted 89 oil tankers from Syria and smuggled them into Iraq through illegal crossings, the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported on Sunday, […]

US hid an airstrike that killed 70 women, children in Syria in 2019:

published by ARABIA NEWS on november 14 2021

The US military hid an airstrike in which it bombed a large crowd of women and children in Syria’s Baghuz town, killing dozens, during the last days of the battle against ISIS in 2019, the New York Times reported on Saturday.

On March 18, 2019, an American F-15E attack jet dropped a 500-pound bomb on the crowd huddled against a river bank, killing dozens. As survivors tried to scramble away, the jet dropped a 2,000 pound bomb, then another killing most of them.

An analyst at the US military’s Combined Air Operations Center at al-Udeid Air Base in Qatar typed on a secure chat system: “We jet dropped on 50 women and children.”

Geopolitische Strategien: Abschneidung Syriens von seinen wichtigsten Ressourcen

Die Raubritter des Mittelalters sind wieder da –aus den USA

Tag für Tag, Woche für Woche und Monat für Monat stehlen die Yankees Erdöl aus Syrien im Wert von 30 Millionen Dollar. Aber es sind nicht nur einfache Raubritter, sondern auch Raub-Mörder. Da jeder, der sich ihren Räubereien in den Weg stellt, wird umgenietet. Das machen sie ja nicht nur in Syrien, sondern genauso in Venezuela, wo sie vor kurzem einen ganzen Öltanker klauten und das Öl für viele Millionen verkauften. 


Biden and Erdogan: Oiil Smugglers

Turkey would like to continue to enjoy the smuggled oil it used to receive from the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.

The United States, still benefits from that smuggled oil. On March 23rd, a convoy of more than 300 tankers left Syria’s Hasaka region and entered Iraq.

Washington’s oil repatriation is not proceeding without a hitch either. On March 23rd, several rockets hit a US military base near the Conico oil field in the Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor. Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen TV reported that the US suffered casualties. Little else is known.

Trump und Erdogan vereinbaren Besatzungszone in Syrien Pressemitteilung von Heike Hänsel, 18. Oktober 2019

Sollten die Waffen im Nordosten Syriens tatsächlich schweigen, wäre dies natürlich zu begrüßen. Doch die Grundlage der Einigung auf eine fünftägige Waffenruhe ist die Akzeptanz einer völkerrechtswidrigen Invasion der Türkei, verbunden mit der Einrichtung einer völkerrechtswidrigen Besatzungszone in Syrien“, erklärt Heike Hänsel, stellvertretende Vorsitzende der Fraktion DIE LINKE. Hänsel weiter:„Die Türkei handelt völkerrechtswidrig und verstößt gegen die UN-Charta und den Nordatlantik-Vertrag der NATO und soll dafür von US-Präsident Donald Trump belohnt werden. Erst machen die USA unter Duldung der EU sowie Deutschlands den Weg frei für eine türkische Invasion in Syrien. Und nun setzt sich die Türkei auch mit ihrem lang gehegten Wunsch nach Einrichtung einer dauerhaften Besatzungszone auf syrischem Staatsgebiet durch, einschließlich des von Erdogan angekündigten Bevölkerungsaustausches. Das ist gleichwohl völkerrechtswidrig und wird den Menschen in Syrien keine Sicherheit bringen. Dies wird keine Sicherheitszone, sondern eine konfliktträchtige Besatzungszone.

US Sneaks Another Convoy Containing Dozens of Vehicles Into Syria Via Iraq 

Posted by INTERNATIONALIST 360° on SEPTEMBER 17, 2020

US forces have brought in a convoy consisting of 58 vehicles into Syria’s al-Hasakah province from Iraq through the al-Waleed border crossing point, SANA has reported, citing civilian sources in the nearby al-Yaroubiya countryside.

The vehicles reportedly included armoured military vehicles, trucks carrying cement plates, and other equipment, with the convoy making its way for the city of Qamishli, the site of last month’s deadly clash between US and Syrian forces, which left one Syrian soldier dead and two others injured.

Kampfhandlungen zwischen US Truppen und den SAF sind aber eher Scharmützel und relativ selten. Die illegale Präsenz der letzten verbliebenen amerikanischen Soldaten soll die Ausbeutung syrischer Ölquellen durch eine US Firma garantieren. Da ein militärischer Sieg immer unwahrscheinlicher wird, soll Assad durch die Kappung seiner wichtigste Ressourcen wirtschaftlich in die Knie gezwungen werden.

Die syrische Armee hat mit russischer Unterstützung Al Qaeda und seine blutrünstigen Ableger in ganz Syrien erfolgreich bekämpft und hat sich nun daran gemacht, auch die letzten verbliebenen Terrorgruppierungen wie HTS, Al Nusra und die vielen Splittergruppen aus ihrem Rueckzugsgebieten in der Provinz Idlib zu vertreiben, bzw. zu vernichten. Man sollte eigentlich annehmen, dass dies auch im Interesse der USA ist. Wir erinnern wie hoch an 9/11 die Wellen der  Empörung schlugen. Mit Recht. Man hat diesen scheußlichen Terroranschlag sogar zum Anlass genommen, den Irak anzugreifen. Zu Unrecht und völkerrechtswidrig. Doch in Syrien unterstützen die USA AlQaeda durch Waffenlieferungen  und schwächen Syrien zusätzlich, indem sie das Land seiner natürlichen Ressourcen berauben.

US-Firma „kümmert sich“ um Ölförderung in Nordost-Syrien

US-Firma „kümmert sich“ um Ölförderung in Nordost-Syrien

31. Juli 2020  Thomas Pany

Die Modernisierung der Ölanlagen im Nordosten Syriens ist notwendig, allein schon wegen der Umweltschäden. Ob eine US-Firma mit einem Ex-Delta-Force-Kämpfer an der Spitze die richtige Adresse für Umweltschutz ist? 

Schon seit Jahren stehlen die USA syrisches Öl und schwächen damit die syrische Wirtschaft entscheidend.

Schwere Vorwürfe aus Moskau 26.10.2019 

Nach Angaben der USA sollen zusätzliche Truppen die Ölfelder im Osten Syriens schützen. Russland wirft Washington dagegen „staatliches Banditentum“ vor: Satellitenfotos würden Ölschmuggel beweisen.Im Einsatz seien zudem private Militärfirmen.

Hier die syrische Sicht auf die permanenten Verletzungen der syrischen Souveränität und des Völkerrechts durch die Aggressoren aus den USA. Die amerikanischen Eindringlinge begnügen sich aber nicht mit der Errichtung von Militärbasen, sie stehlen auch in großem Umfang Oel und Baumwolle und bringen es ausser Landes. Durch das Abbrennen von Weizenfeldern schädigen  die Bauern und berauben  die Menschen ihrer natürlichen Lebensgrundlagen. Das kann man nur als besonders infam und inhuman bezeichnen. Diese Strategien sind nicht neu, Washington hatte sie schon im Irak angewandt. Auch die Nazis hatten im 2.Weltkrieg in Griechenland nach dessen Kapitulation und der Besetzung durch die Wehrmacht und die SS einen gigantischen Raubzug gestartet, wovon auch Firmen wie Reemtsma und Krupp profitiert haben, ähnlich wie heute 

amerikanische Ölfirmen aus dem Diebstahl syrischen Öls ihren Nutzen ziehen.

 Energie-Krieg um Syrien: Vertreibungen entlang der Pipelines

Der Krieg um Syrien ist nur auf den ersten Blick unübersichtlich. Bei genauerem Hinsehen zeigt sich: Kämpfe zwischen Söldnern und Regierungstruppen finden nur dort statt, wo wichtige Pipelines verlaufen oder geplant sind. Russland, die West-Mächte und die Golfstaaten kämpfen um die beste Ausgangsposition für Gas- und Öllieferungen für den europäischen Markt. Deutschland spielt in dieser Auseinandersetzung keine Rolle.

Zwei der wichtigsten Öl-Märkte befinden sich in den syrischen Städten Manbidsch und al-Bab, die sich wiederum beide in der Provinz Aleppo befinden, berichtet die Financial Times. Durch diese beiden Städte verläuft auch die wichtigste Pipeline, die Öl aus dem Irak – aus Mossul und al-Qaim – nach Syrien bis in die Provinz Idlib transportiert. Dieselbe Pipeline verläuft im Westen auch durch die Stadt Aleppo bis zum Öl-Markt in Idlib.Wer immer Manbidsch kontrolliert, hat einen großen Einfluss auf den Öl-Transport in Syrien. Dasselbe gilt für Aleppo, Idlib und al-Bab im Westen des Landes. Im Osten des Landes verläuft dieselbe Öltransport-Linie durch Rakka und Deir Ezzor. Das Öl, das durch diese Transportlinie fließt kommt aus Mossul, über Sinjar nach Deir Ezzor und ein zweiter Strang von al-Qaim nach Deir Ezzor.

US occupation sends convoy of weapons, logistic equipment to its base in Koniko oilfield in Deir Ezzor countryside

17 March، 2021

Deir Ezzor, SANA- US occupation forces have sent weapons and logistic materials to Koniko oilfield, northeast of Deir Ezzor, with the aim of reinforcing its military base in that area.

Local sources told SANA that a convoy consisting of several vehicles and trucks loaded with weapons and logistic equipment affiliated to the US occupation forces entered Koniko oilfield in Deir Ezzor northeastern countryside, which they turned it into a military base to reinforce their presence and to plunder the Syrian resources.

The US occupation continuously brings military and logistic reinforcements to the areas it occupies to reinforce its bases, as it deliberately and in collusion with the so-called QSD militia has turned many oilfields, governmental facilities, schools and clinics in the Syrian al-Jazeera area into military bases.

The US is Hindering Syria’s Recovery

Posted by INTERNATIONALIST 360° on SEPTEMBER 11, 2020,  Ekaterina Blinova

“[The US] deprives the Syrian government of the revenues of oil through appointing the Kurdish ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ group as ‘guards’ of Syrian oil fields”, she emphasises. “The US openly steals 200,000 oil barrels from the Syrian oil fields on a daily basis. It has also stolen 400,000 tonnes of cotton and sets fire to thousands of hectares of wheat fields. It has stolen 5 million livestock. It is deliberately weakening the value of the Syrian pound.”

US Smuggles Three Dozen Oil Tankers Out of Syria by Dead of Night

“Northeastern Syria, home to the vast majority of the country’s oil, is also where most US troops in the country are concentrated. Damascus has repeatedly accused US forces and their Kurdish allies of stealing the nation’s oil, with intelligence confirming the shipment of tens of millions of dollars of black gold out of the country every month.Last year, Russian military intelligence released a report on US oil-smuggling activities in Syria, revealing that the Pentagon, the CIA, private military contractors and Kurdish militias were engaged in the illegal shipment of more than $30 million-worth of Syrian oil out of the war-torn country each month.

Mit der Besetzung und Ausbeutung der Ölquellen zerstören die USA eine der wichtigsten Einnahmequellen des Landes und berauben Assad auch der Mittel für den dringend notwendigen Wiederaufbau. Sie verschärfen gleichzeitig die Not der Zivilbevölkerung. Das ist Teil der Strategie Trumps, Assad auch ohne einen militärischen Sieg aus dem Spiel zu nehmen. “Before the start of its foreign-backed civil conflict in 2011, Syria produced about 400,000 barrels of oil per day, enough to provide the country with energy self-sufficiency and up to 20 percent of the state’s revenues. Production dropped dramatically during the war. Syria and its allies see the return of the nation’s energy resources as a crucial requirement for rebuilding the country from the estimated $200-$400 billion in damage caused during the conflict. However, President Trump has repeatedly pledged to “take” and “keep” Syria’s oil and to prevent it from falling into the hands either of terrorists or the Syrian government.” so Syria INTERNATIONAL 360.

US Policy Towards Kurds in Syria, Iraq Aimed at Undermining the Region

The US also claimed its continued presence in Syria officially seeks to confront and eliminate the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (ISIS), but official accounts maintained by the US government and the US Department of Defense on an almost daily basis provide a wide and every-shifting number of excuses.


The region the US occupies is also where the majority of Syria’s petroleum is extracted and America’s “protection” of these resources is part of a wider strategy – not to fight ISIS – but to deny the Syrian state which has eliminated ISIS from all territory it controls – both energy and revenue from its own natural resources.

In essence, the US is in Syria weakening the Syrian government who has led the fight against ISIS and provoking confrontations with Russia who has been key in aiding Damascus against ISIS, Al Nusra, and other affiliates of Al Qaeda.
