US wants to widen war in Syria by arms


The United States and its allies are trying to “widen the war” in Syria and “to bring in more weapons” because they are losing the combat, an American analyst says.

Bruce Gagnon said the US and Saudi Arabia are losing in Syria because the majority of Syrian citizens are “opposed to the terrorism that is been unleashed by the US, and its Saudi and NATO allies.”

“This is the plan and I think it’s terrible, terrible plan,” Gagnon from Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space told Press TV on Sunday.

The Times Herald reported on Friday that Washington is providing antitank missiles to foreign-backed militants in Syria as the government of President Bashar al-Assad is set to beat the three-year-old deadly insurgency.

The BGM-71 TOW (Tube-launched, Optically-tracked, Wire-guided) missiles are surfacing in Syria as part of a "pilot program" to boost the morale of the downhearted militants, said a US official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The sophisticated missiles are designed to destroy tanks and blow up reinforced bunkers.

The delivery of the deadly weapons began in March and is part of a program that could lead to larger flows of sophisticated weaponry into Syria, according to the former official.
“At the same time in the United States, there is a proposal to do the same thing, send these kind of same weapons to Ukraine to really create more instability and turn Ukraine into Syria right on Russia’s border. So the US and Saudi Arabia and NATO are really trying to destabilize the situation in many many places around the world,” Gagnon said.
