Contrary to the picture portrayed by Atlanticist propaganda, Thierry Meyssan takes a long-term view of international relations. For him, what we have seen in Syria over the last seven years is not a civil war, but rather a seventeen-year regional war in the greater Middle East. This vast conflict, from which Russia emerges victor over NATO, is gradually giving rise to a new world equilibrium.
All wars end with winners and losers. The seventeen years we have just lived through in the “Greater Middle East” is no exception. Yet, while Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi have been eliminated and Syria is winning, the only real losers are the Arab people.
At the most, one can pretend to believe that the problem concerns only Syria. And that in Syria, it is circumscribed to Ghouta. And that in Ghouta, the Army of Islam has been defeated. Yet, this episode will not be enough to declare the end of the hostilities that have ravaged the region, destroyed entire cities and killed hundreds of thousands of men, women and children.
Nevertheless, the surviving myth that “civil wars” spread by contagion  allows the 130 states and international organizations that participated in the “Friends of Syria” meetings to shirk their responsibilities and to hold their heads high. Furthermore, since they will never admit failure, they will continue to perpetrate their abuses in other theaters of operation. In other words: their war will soon be over in this region, but it will resume elsewhere.
From this point of view, what has played out in Syria since the US declaration of war nearly 15 years ago – i.e. when the Syrian Accountability Act was passed into law in December 2003 – will have shaped the world Order that is currently emerging. Indeed, while almost all the states in the “Greater Middle East” have been weakened or completely wrecked, Syria is the only one still standing and independent.
Consequently, the strategy of Admiral Cebrowski, designed to destroy the societies and states of non-globalized countries while compelling the globalized ones to ensure the security of the US military, allowing it to plunder the raw materials and energy sources in the destroyed areas, can not be implemented by the Pentagon either here or in any other region.
Under President Trump’s leadership, the US Armed Forces have gradually ceased to support the jihadists and have begun to withdraw from the battlefield. This does not mean they have become philanthropic overnight , but simply realistic. This development should mark the end of their interventions against foreign states.

The articles below illustrate our ongoing struggles: The United States has lost in Syria, but it is not giving up. Russia has now won a place of respect at the world table and is finding it easier for its ideas to be ‘heard.’ And within international law, Russia demonstrates helpful give-and-take among nations, creating win-win situations. The US continues to fight battles to gain control of its self-created enemies in its old, brutal way.
What way forward will the people of our planet eventually choose?
