    very interesting, does it mean that Muscovy wants 2 states solution for "Syria"? whats Trump´s administration plan for Syria? we all understand it will be no place for war - criminal Assadists in the new "Syria". so how do you think will be look like "Syria" without Assad?

    Clever move. This aligns Russia with 2 of the three major factions: Kurds and GoS, and simplifies the playing board to a large extent. Now the USA-backed FSA is isolated amongst the three major non-ISIS powers.

    There are also interesting echoes into Northern Iraq / Kurdistan. Aligning Shia and Kurd interests there and in Syria extends the barrier separating Arab money and influence and Russia's southern sphere of influence.

    Trump is certainly arguing for a new direction, but I don't believe the State department supports his initiative. Maybe I'm wrong. His success so far in turning the government ship in any direction has been limited.

    Oh come now, Litwin
    What the Russians term autonomous is different to the Western ear.
    Sort of like terming Ukraine as a Republic back in the ole USSR days.
    Aren't there Autonomous Regions within the current Russian Federation?
    How autonomous are they? Maybe they get to maintain their own roads?

    Some Provinces were autonomous
    some were royal colonies
    before the unification and loss of local governing.​

    I'm guessing it would be the same Muscovites who gave themselves the right to make decisions for Georgia and Ukraine.

    Last I heard, some of them debating what decisions they should make for Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, too...

    You're jumping to ridiculous conclusions about Assad. You forget there is such a thing as the Syrian people and democracy, that supersedes what Washington wants. So Assad is not going anywhere as long as the Syrian people want him.

    This agreement seems very much in tune with the Russian Federation in that there will be a state language and also a local language. This conflicts with what Washington wants, and that is to break Syria up into different countries. That way they will always be in conflict with one another, rather than living with one another peacefully the way they did before Washington sent in its NGO's to create trouble.

    I just noticed that the article goes back to January. I think that peace deal they were working was destroyed by the false flag chemical attack
    and America's bombing of the Syrian base. It's not the first time. Whenever it seems the fighting will end, the US does something to reignite it so the war can keep going on... and on... and on...

    Syria will be transformed by Russia and regional autonomy will replace Assad's one-man dictatorship. There are dozens of autonomous okrugs in Russia, on which this idea is modelled.

    No Litwin, when I say the Syrian people, I mean the Chistians, Kurds, Alawites, Shias, moderate Sunnis, etc. In other words 90% of the population which includes just about everyone except the foreign terrorists.

    Why do have so much hatred for the Syrian people that you would want them to suffer under sharia law? Be careful, it might come back to bite you someday.

    Assad wouldn't have needed Russian intervention to keep him in power if the Syrian people wanted him to remain in power.

    I have news for you, having Assad as president is what the people of Syria, want but it's not what the Washington globalists want. So Litwin, do you believe in democracy or American tyranny?

    I disagree only in that the US does not want autonomy for the Kurds, it wants total independence for them... and so Turkey right now is at war with the US since an independent Kurdistan constitutes a threat to their sovereignty. But that's okay, Turkey is at war with everyone anyway.

    What the US plan is, and why it broke the peace agreement once again with the false flag chemical attack, is to create a jihadist independent Sunnistan, that together with Kurdistan would split Syria from Iran.


    If you look at the map you will notice the gray line that represents ISIS does exactly that. It splits Syria from Iran. This is why whenever the Syrian army starts defeating ISIS the Americans or Israelis intervene to help out ISIS.

    This is also probably why ISIS apologized to Israel for attacking their soldiers by mistake
    .
