Biden Deploying More US Troops to Middle East
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Throughout his time in Washington from the early 1970s, Biden supported all US wars of aggression against invented enemies.
Will he escalate inherited conflicts in multiple countries, perhaps launch one or more new ones?
Like his predecessors, peace and stability are off the table.
A permanent state of forever war is highly likely to continue on his watch.
It’s been hard-wired US policy throughout most of the post-WW II period.
When Biden took office, Syria’s UN envoy Bashar al Jaafari called on his regime to end a near-decade of US war in his country, saying the following:
“The American occupation forces continue to plunder Syria’s wealth of oil, gas and agricultural crops, burning and destroying what it cannot steal,” adding:
“The new (US regime) must stop acts of aggression and occupation, plundering the wealth of my country, (and) withdraw its occupying forces.”
It must “stop supporting (jihadists), illegal entities, and attempts to threaten Syria’s sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity.”
Obama/Biden launched aggression against Syria in early 2011, a failed attempt to transform the country into a pro-Western vassal state and isolate Iran.
Biden/Harris have no intention of ending US forever war on Syria and its people — despite failure to achieve the aims of its predecessors.
The US is building one or more new bases in the country, suggesting no end to permanent occupation and war.
More Pentagon troops are being deployed to Syria and Iraq — on the phony pretext of combatting an ISIS resurgence the US supports, a statement by Pentagon spokeswoman Jessica McNulty saying the following:
“The US is participating in the force generation process for NATO Mission Iraq and will contribute its fair share to this important expanded mission (sic),” adding:
“The US and its partners in the global coalition to defeat ISIS (sic) remain committed to ensuring the enduring defeat of ISIS (sic), and the department looks forward to continued consultations with Iraq, NATO, and the global coalition going forward (sic).”
According to US installed NATO secretary general Stoltenberg, thousands more alliance troops are being sent to Iraq — on the phony pretext of combatting ISIS.
Defying reality, he added that US-controlled NATO occupation of Iraq will “expand (to) fight terrorism” the alliance supports.
He falsely claimed that the expanded mission comes “at the request of the Iraqi government (sic).”
“It is carried out with full respect for Iraq’s sovereignty and territorial integrity (sic).”
The vast majority of Iraqis and members of parliament want their country back. They want unacceptable US occupation ended.
US hardliners intend permanent occupation of Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen, and other countries, along with a permanent state of war on these nations and their long-suffering people.
Trump wanted US troops withdrawn from the region but failed to achieve this objective.
Biden wants more Pentagon occupying forces sent to Middle East countries, more likely to Afghanistan.
US war secretary Austin “welcomed” greater numbers of US and NATO forces in the Middle East and elsewhere, saying:
“From Afghanistan and the Middle East, across Europe, Africa and our own hemisphere, to the wide expanse of the Western Pacific, the United States stands shoulder-to-shoulder with allies old and new, partners big and small (sic),” adding:
“Each of them brings to the mission unique skills, knowledge and capabilities.”
“And each of them represents a relationship worth tending, preserving and respecting. We will do so.”
Before Trump left office, acting war secretary Miller said the following:
“The drawdown of US force levels in Iraq is reflective of the increased capabilities of the Iraqi security forces.”
“Our ability to reduce force levels is evidence of real progress.”
Biden reversed dubious “progress” in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere.
A state of greater US war in multiple countries exists than when he took war.
Is much more of the same coming, perhaps facilitated by one or more US false flags?
According to a White House statement,” the Biden regime claims the “right (to strike its enemies) at a time and place of (its) choosing.”
Is escalated US aggression in Syria and Iraq coming?
Will Iran be falsely blamed for things it had nothing to do with as before?
Resurgence of US supported ISIS appears part of a Biden regime plan for greater belligerence instead of turning a page for peace and stability in the Middle East and Central Asia.
