ANDREW KORYBKO—Nobody – least of all the Syrians – should have been surprised that Russia stood back and “watched the fireworks” since Moscow is allied with Tel Aviv and has no intention whatsoever of risking World War III for the sake of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), let alone its Hezbollah and IRGC partners, when its military mandate in the country is strictly to fight international terrorist groups and not defend the host state from conventional outside aggression.

STRATEGIC CULTURE—Washington’s putative withdrawal from Syria, if anything, is due to its realization of defeat for its regime-change operation.

This may sound harsh, unfair and even shocking to many on the left, as Scahill is often on target, spot on, until he goes off the rails. And then the glaring contradictions crop up. But, meantime, who can fail to agree with this statement:
