The US-led coalition of war criminals is using elements of Syria's Kurdish population to achieve the U.S Empire's goal of destroying the non-belligerent, democratic country of Syria, led by its hugely popular, democratically-elected President, Bashar al-Assad. 
Empire seeks to create sectarianism and ethnic divides in a country that, prior to the Western-launched criminal dirty war, had neither.
President al-Assad is well aware of the imperial forces behind the mercenaries invading his
country. In a speech to the newly elected members of the People's Assembly of Syria (Syria's
Parliament) on 7 June 2016, he elaborated upon the modus operandi of the invaders:
" They seek to attack the constitution by means of a so-called "transition" stage.
" They seek to destroy the two pillars of the government: the army and the diverse, national, pan-Arab and religious identity of Syrians.
" They seek to rebrand the savage terrorists as "moderates" and then to eternally provide them with a cover of legitimacy.
" They seek to create chaos, sectarianism, and ethnic enclaves that turn the people's commitment from the homeland to conflicting groups that seek help from foreigners against their own people.
" They seek to be branded as "humanitarian" and "protectors" to save the people from (externally engineered) conflict and misery.
By imposing economic and armed terrorism on Syrians, by waging a phony war against their own terrorist proxies (including ISIS and al Qaeda), by creating sectarian and ethnic tensions, and by destroying Syria's infrastructure -- including water and electrical infrastructure -- the Western, Zionist, and GCC agencies of terrorism seek to be perceived as saviours, humanitarians and protectors, who can then introduce the "free market" of international capital, which will be the coup de gr ce to effect the final destruction of the host country. And mainstream fake news provides the criminal warmongers with on-going, 24/7 cover to commit their war crimes.
