US targets Syria infrastructure rather than militants: Sabrosky

Veterans News Now, Contributing Editor, Dr. Alan Sabrosky, speaks to: PRESS TV (VIDEO)

(Dr. Alan Sabrosky (Ph.D, University of Michigan) is a ten-year US Marine Corps veteran and a 1986 graduate of the US Army War College.)

Alan Sabrosky made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Tuesday while commenting on Washington-led coalition airstrikes in Syria that began last week.

“As far as I can tell, this is simply an attempt by the Administration to do what it could not do a year ago.”

“What I can see happening is that the targets they’re selecting are those that have, in many cases, no military value at all to ISIS or any other rebel group but really are intended to break whatever infrastructure the Syrian government will have when the fighting is over, such as: the Conoco oil refinery and the grain elevator” Sabrosky said.

Washington intends to inflict “such damage to the economic and industrial infrastructure within Syria that any Syrian government after the fighting will be so weakened that it will be vulnerable to further attacks.”

Sabrosky, also noted that it is important for the international community to understand that “War has become a normal part of the American political, public and social environment here.”

“There is almost no public or congressional questioning, much less public opposition to the attacks now taking place in Iraq and Syria.”

“War has become a normal part of discourse in the US, as the country is now entering its 14th year of continuous warfare.”

“That is extremely dangerous for a lot of other countries,” he stated.

    The U S government is attempting to weaken almost all Middle Eastern nations with two exceptions being Saudi Arabia and Israel. As Dr. Alan Sabrosky has pointed out, the zionists were instrumental in bringing about 9/11. Using this false flag as the excuse, the ravaging of Muslim nations continues unabated with Iran as the ultimate target.
    Russia’s move to eliminate ISIS will send the conspirators back to the drawing board so that they will have what appears on the surface as an iron clad excuse to attack Iran. The destruction of civilians in Israel or the US will be made to look as if it were Iran’s doing. Of course, Israel will decline to make their citizens be the victims, not out of compassion for their people, but because they do not want to become targets in the fighting. That is why ISIS was used as a Trojan Horse and never sought to attack Israel.
    It is much more convenient for Israel to have the US provide the victims to justify war against Iran and the war profiteers will be happy to oblige.
    The finger on the nuclear button in the US is now under a Jewish general’s control.
