The US seeks to push Russia out of Syria because it views Moscow as a huge hurdle in its plans to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, says a political analyst in Virginia. Keith Preston, the chief editor and director of Attackthesystem.com, made the remarks on Wednesday, while discussing the rising number of civilian casualties in America's so-called war against the Daesh (ISIL) terrorists in Iraq and Syria. “The Americans do not like the Russians getting in the way of this,” he concluded. The United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura estimates that over 400,000 people have been killed in the conflict that has gripped Syria for over five years now.
