Letter from Syria; America again wants us to hate America

Number of years ago I wrote on this platform a small article titled (Do we have to hate Americans)at that time my son was only 13 , now he is 23 and he is a graduating doctor, followed the path of his father, well, this the Arab World Son always wishes to be like his dad.

I don't know why I remembered that little article today? A lot has happened since 2009 in the Middle East, in the Arab World, in America and in the entire world. And still happening, lately the Impeachment hearing of president Trump which I watch over CNN admiring the American democracy and transparency.

But this is not what perused me to remember my thoughts at that time, in fact was a news report about Syria, my country, where fuel crisis is affecting millions of Syrians daily since early 2014 until now. First the oil fields were captured by ISIS terror group which without doubt created by America and then controlled by Kurdish separatist factions that( fought) against ISIS with American support and ultimately controlled by the American troops who remained in Syria after Trump's withdrawal announcement and his remarks or tweets that US troops will stay stationed at Syria's oil fields awaiting decision what we will do with it probably will use the income to pay the Kurdish alley as prize for fighting ISIS ( sounds wired, isn't?).

I have a question always in my mind, why is the US behaving like this?, destroyed Iraq, created Daesh or ISIS and other fanatic terror groups in Syria under the name of religion Can anyone give me an answer? The US indeed lost credibility in Syria and in the Arab World.

Back in the '80s there used to be a bumper sticker that read, "He who dies with the most toys wins."


Hegemony. Power. Riches. Wanton greed.
