The USA is literally one shot away from provoking World War 3 beginning in Syria and against Russia. The USA ‘accidentally’ bombed an encampment of Syrian troops, and then attempted to distract the world from it’s crimes by commanding ISIS to destroy an aid convoy.
While the US claims that it was an accident, Assad claims it was intentional and that the airstrikes lasted for over an hour.
“It was not an accident by one airplane; it was four airplanes which kept attacking the position of the Syrian troops for nearly one hour or maybe a little bit more than one hour,” Assad told AP, adding they were attacking a large area that “constituted of many hills” adjacent to where the Syrian troops were stationed.
To top that off, according to both Russian experts and representatives of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent; the attack on the humanitarian Convoy in Syria was a provocation.
The Russian Defense Ministry released footage showing that there was no chance it had attacked the convoy.
“There is no evidence that it was an airstrike of either Russian or Syrian aviation on the humanitarian convoy in Syria,” Wael al Malas, the representative of the Syrian branch of the Red Crescent, which escorted the convoy, told Russia’s Izvestiya newspaper. “On the contrary, everything points to it being the militants of the terrorist organizations who exploded and set on fire the trucks of the convoy,” he added.
Timing is everything; and al Malas added, that the attack coincided with the militant assault on the positions of the Syrian army near Aleppo.
“Therefore it was more likely a provocation aimed at capturing the media’s attention in order to accuse Damascus and Moscow of the attack,” he stated.
Being that the attacks coincided with each other, it is quite probable that either the oppositional forces decided on their own to escalate the situation and attack the convoy, or they might have received an order from the US to do so.
Being that all three attacks involved the US, the coalition, and ISIS; it is quite plausible to entertain the idea that ISIS is receiving orders from the United States Military.
