Ratney in 2018 on U.S. policy in #Syria

“Resolve the core regime-opposition conflict by pressuring the Assad regime via international ostracism of his government and support for the insurgency against it”

Let me translate this in more plain English ==>…
2-“International ostracism” was an attempt to banish the Syrian State & isolate #Syria through the use of media, diplomatic pressure and threat of economic sanction. Idea was weaken Assad/State by impoverishing the country through isolation. Now, let’s throw more arms inside too
3-“Support for the insurgency against the regime”

is a fancy way for saying we will fund, arm and train every and any Syrian man willing to fight against his government. It’s a policy of taking on the role of evil while wearing a suit & holding fancy degrees from Ivey schools
