All the measures the United States adopts regarding the crisis in Syria are eventually aimed at overthrowing the government of President Bashar al-Assad, an analyst says.
“We do not know at this point how far the Obama administration and the Pentagon and pentagon is prosecuting war against Syria but they are very determined, it is clear, to achieve their objective which is regime change in the country,” Richard Becker from the A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition told Press TV’s US Desk on Thursday.
The analyst said the US sending weapons to the militants in Syria and the deployment of troops and Patriot missiles to Turkey and Jordan, Syria’s northern and southern neighbors show how resolute the White House is to bring down the Assad government.
Becker alluded to Gen. Martin Dempsey the chairman of Joint Chiefs of Staff Wednesday announcement of US plans to send troops to Lebanon and Iraq, saying the move will be made to put further pressure on Assad.
The recent escalation in the US intervention in the Syria conflict stems from the significant advances that the Syrian army has made in the fight against the foreign-backed militants, the analyst said.
Walter B. Jones, Jr., a Republican from North Carolina, has introduced the House Concurrent Resolution No. 40 in the Congress, saying lawmakers can impeach Obama in case he gets the US militarily involved in Syria.
“We cannot continue to spend American money and risk American lives overseas without a vote of approval from Congress,” Jones said in a press release posted on his website.
