The Think Tank Dedicated To Keeping the US in the Syria Quagmire

The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) released a report on November 21st titled "Russia’s Dead-End Diplomacy in Syria." The report focuses on Russia’s role in supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and calls for the U.S. to maintain a presence in Syria.

The ISW presents itself as a "non-partisan, non-profit, public policy research organization." In reality, the ISW is a neocon think tank funded by some of the country’s largest defense contractors. The ISW has a significant influence in Washington, and its chairman even has direct access to President Trump.

The report argues that Assad does not have the resources to regain and maintain control of the rest of Syria and that his victory would not bring stability. As far as Russia’s role, the report says, "The Kremlin seeks to thwart any Western effort to replace Assad and to instead reach a superficial political settlement that legitimizes his regime and neutralizes his opposition."

Under International Law, Russia is in Syria legitimately - as is Iran - through being invited to help by the Syrian Government under the provisions of the UN Charter: the USA (and any others) are there illegitimately i.e. illegally and thus comitting acts of war against a sovereign state, and so any actions taken by the personnel of those countries would be prima facie a war crime (yes, America that applies to you too). Thus this advice is advocating the commission of war crimes.

Am fear a thug buaidh air fhèin, thug e buaidh air nàmhaid.
He who conquers himself, conquers an enemy.
