The United States seeks to “cripple” Syria in the middle of the ongoing conflict that has gripped the Arab country for nearly four years, says an analyst.
Gordon Duff, with Veterans Today from Ohio, said in an interview with Press TV that the conflict in Syria “is a world war.”
US Secretary of State John Kerry seeks to “cripple” Syria and turn the country, which is the “major player in this world war,” into a “caliphate that is tied to” the government in Turkey.
The US secretary of state has called for a political solution to end the crisis in Syria, where nearly 200,000 people have reportedly been killed and millions displaced.
The United States and its regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey — have been supporting the militants operating inside Syria since the beginning of the crisis.
The top US diplomat has also said that Washington needs to be deeply involved in the Middle East issues, adding that the region’s threats can become global if not addressed appropriately.
