This New Yorker piece is notable for its arrogant headline, and several false assertions. Those may be necessary to divert from its real message - the U.S. surrender to the realities of Syria: Trump to Let Assad Stay Until 2021, as Putin Declares Victory in Syria
[T]he Trump Administration is now prepared to accept President Bashar al-Assad’s continued rule until Syria’s next scheduled Presidential election, in 2021, according to U.S. and European officials. The decision reverses repeated U.S. statements that Assad must step down as part of a peace process.
The Trump Administration says it still wants a political process that holds the prospect of Assad’s departure. But it has concluded that it may take until 2021, when the next election is scheduled, to pull it off.
U.S. officials worry that Assad could win the 2021 Syrian election, one way or the other, and remain in power for years to come.
The U.S. "lets Assad stay" because there is simply nothing else it can do without waging a large scale war. It has tried everything else - and lost. In 2012 it attempted to assassinate Assad, but he wasn't at the security meeting that the CIA blew up. It send 100,000 Takfiri fighters from all over the world to Syria and shipped in ten-thousands of tons of weapons and ammunition. The global anti-Syrian propaganda campaign in favor of the Takfiris was unprecedented. It tried to build a political opposition and sponsored it with hundreds of millions. It lastly invaded the country and tried to split it by force. It failed on all fronts.
The U.S. decision reflects the Administration’s limited options, the military reality on the ground, and the success of Syria’s Russian, Iranian, and Hezbollah allies in propping up the beleaguered Assad regime.
The Syrian opposition groups backed by the United States have been ineffectual. They have squabbled among themselves and split into factions.
Diplomatically, Washington has been marginalized by the powerful troika of Russia, Iran, and Turkey, which now dominates the peace process.
In 2013 the author of the piece, Robin Wright, presented the Israeli dream of a split up Middle East.
It was a remake of the "Blood Borders" map peddled in 2006 by the neoconservatives Col. Ralph Peters. That map went into the trash-bin when the U.S. had to leave Iraq. Wrigth's cartographic expression of imperial arrogance will end there too.
Wright is heavily wired in Washington. She is part of the *borg* and held/holds positions at the U.S. Institute of Peace (which plans wars), the Wilson Center, Brookings and Carnegie Endowment. That she has now given up on her ludicrous map likely reflects the leading opinions within those institutions.
Col. John Thomas, spokesman for the US Central Command (CENTCOM), said that the international coalition forces would remain in Syria to support the operations of the Arab-Kurdish “Syrian Democratic Forces” until the conclusion of negotiations on a political solution in Geneva.
He added that the US forces would continue to fight terrorist organizations close to “al-Qaeda” in Syria, including al-Nusra Front, “regardless of ISIS presence.”
Yesterday Putin visited Syria. He declared victory and announced that part of the Russian troops in Syria would return home. He made sure that everyone, the U.S., the Turks, the Saudis and the Israelis, understood that the troops would be back in no-time if they try to reignite the war:
"If terrorists again raise head, we will deliver such strikes on them that they haven’t seen so far," Putin told the Russian military.
Another member of the Syrian alliance, the Lebanese party Hizbullah, is now refocusing on Israel. Trump's hail-Mary pass of illegally recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital came just in time to give new impetus to the resistance:
Mr Nasrallah called on the “resistance axis” — a reference to Hizbollah and its Syrian and Iranian allies and patrons — to “devote all its power and time to the Palestinians. I call on all the resistance factions in the region to unite and put one common strategy and practical plan to face this threat,” he said.
It was Israel that was behind (pdf) the campaign to dismantle Syria and Iraq. It utterly failed and the revenge will be harsh. Hizbullah is better armed and trained than ever. Battle experienced Iraqi and Iranian groups stand ready. The Syrian army is much better trained and equipped than before the war. The Iraqi resistance leader Qais Al Khazali recently visited south-Lebanon and took a look over the border into Israel. He was surveying the new battlefield.
Israel's great new alliance with Saudi Arabia has not helped its position. The Salman tyrant and his son are in an insecure position and their great relations with Trump have tanked, allegedly over the issue of Jerusalem.
The Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahoo is under pressure at home. The corruption accusation accumulate and his time in office is now limited.
Who will replace him? What is the new plan the Zionists will come up with to react to the changed situation?

US President Donald Trump has just justified US airstrikes on Syrian government forces as “lawful measures” to counter threats to US forces in the war-torn country.
The president wrote in a letter to the US Congress on December 11 that since the last periodic update report, the US Armed Forces participating in the anti ISIS campaign in Syria have undertaken “a limited number of strikes against Syrian government and pro-Syrian government forces.”
Trump added that the strikes “were lawful measures to counter immediate threats to the United States and partner forces engaged in that campaign.”
The US president just forgot to note that the US actions in Syria have never been authorized neither by the Syrian government nor by the UN. Furthermore, the Syrian government describes the US presence “illegal” and says that it’s “aggression.”
However, who cares when the democracy is in danger?
ADD- ADHD is a type of behavioral disorder that affects both children and adults. Generally, this disease is one considered to be one specific to children, teens and young adults, but it can manifest in adults as well. This behavioral disorder is the most frequent forms of mental disorder. It is estimated that 1 in 20 children is affected by one of these types of disease, and until recently, it was thought that boys are more affected. However, recent research has shown that girls show different symptoms than boys, which makes it more difficult to diagnose ADD or ADHD in girls and women. In the past 40 years, the ADD-ADHD diagnosis was widely spread amongst Americans of all ages, which made many think that it is specific to this particular area of the globe. However, it shortly became clear that there is no socio-geographical coordinate that determines the apparition of these diseases, children and adults suffering from it globally.
ADD-ADHD is a mental disorder with accents on the neurodevelopment type. It usually manifests as a bundle of symptoms, such as excessive activity, impulsivity, attention deficit and one’s difficulty in controlling their behavior. It usually begins at the age of twelve and usually persists throughout one’s life. However, children younger than 12 can also suffer from ADD-ADHD, but the disease is usually diagnosed once they start a form of schooling, due to the child’s inability of paying attention in class. Children suffering from ADD-ADHD that show problems with paying attention in school and recreational activities might usually have poor school performances, but also lack healthy social interactions. In modern society, ADD-ADHD is considered to be a form of impairment.
Although ADD-ADHD is one of the most studied diseases in children, teenagers and adults, many of its causes remain unknown and it is oftentimes diagnosed incorrectly in many individuals. In 2015, it was approximated that somewhere around 50 million people worldwide are suffering from it.
Troublesome behavior is one of the first signs of ADD-ADHD. Other common symptoms of the condition are inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Adapting to new environments, poor academic results, severe issues in developing healthy interpersonal relationships are common problems for those suffering from it. Nevertheless, distinguishing between normal levels of those types of behaviors and ones characteristic to ADHD is difficult. The most common diagnostic method for ADD-ADHD is the DSM-5 basis. Depending on the type of ADHD with which one is diagnosed, the symptoms vary.

My weights gone up again which is odd. I think it happens when I'm not drinking properly. I'm feeling pretty okay other than my hand still hurting. I'm yet to fix my poor sleeping though.
Day 34 216lbs, Waist 98cm Chest 122cm
Slept 11 hours today. I feel better having done so but i definitely couldn't do that everyday. Sadly I couldn't get to sleep until 7am, so i spent the whole day asleep.
Day 35. 214.8lbs, Waist 98cm Chest 122cm
I've added some electrolites and suppliments to my water. I'm going to do that now before I start slowly adding soups and fruit juices on days 41-50. I'm hoping to "refeed" days 41-50 and then return to my fast on days 51+ Which might only be 30days this time depending on the results of my blood tests.
Day 36. 216.6lbs, Waist 98cm Chest 122cm
I'm feeling so amazing since adding Gastrolyte to my water. I got really great sleep last night, alsmost 8 hours and I'm wishing i had started doing this earlier as others suggested. But at the same time, i really wanted to experience a proper clean fast and I think doing that made me feel a lot better.
Day 37. 213.5lbs, Waist 98cm Chest 122cm
Had a good day today. Did nearly 20,000 steps which isn't the best idea, but i felt so full of energy and super hyper. Today I had 0 nausia and I could think clearly. Looking forward to the last 3 days! I'm a little worried though as during my refeed I will be house sitting for 2 months!!! And the friends house I'm looking after is a bar tender and she has so much alcohol and she keeps telling me I can drink as much as I want and I'm so scared that I will. I've been 37days sober and I'm so proud of that. This will be such a challenge.
