The Unz Review has the Mike Whitney article Washington Announces “Indefinite” U.S. Occupation of Syria and Creation of Kurdish State. Then, Recants.
On Wednesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced the creation of a de facto autonomous Kurdish state in east Syria that will be supported by the United States and defended by a US-backed “proxy” army of occupation. Tillerson’s announcement was made at a confab he attended at Stanford University at the Hoover Institute.
I have only had a chance to skim this article, but I heard the author talk about it in an interview. There is an amazing amount of info in his interview that clarifies what we are doing in Syria and its implications in the Middle East and around the world.
The interview occurred in the second half of the podcast that I posted on this blog New National Defense Strategy: Arms Race and Great Power Conflict.
