TEHRAN (Iran News) – U.S., the Looter State. If one has a look back at the history of the U.S. in the international scene, he can definitely realize that the U.S. is a looter country and his presence in the countries in different continents is not for the sake of protecting human rights or saving of the nations but it just goes to those countries for its own sake and benefit and begins looting the wealth of nations under different guises.
On Thursday, Syrian news agency revealed one of the acts of looting of the Americans in Syria which is an example to international robbery than peacekeeping.
U.S. military vehicles, including tanker trucks laden with stolen Syrian oil, lef the Khrab al-Jir base in the northeastern province of Hasakah for Iraq over the past 24 hours, SANA reported.
The Syria’s official news agency cited local sources in the village of Suwaydiyah in al-Ya’rubiyah region, reported that two convoys of 70 vehicles headed towards Iraq after passing through the al-Waleed border crossing.
The sources added that “a convoy of 44 vehicles, including tankers of stolen Syrian oil, refrigerators, and a number of armored vehicles” left for north of Iraq.
The U.S. military forces also reportedly took out a convoy of 26 vehicles from the same area on Thursday.
The U.S. military has stationed forces and equipment in northeastern Syria, with the Pentagon claiming that the deployment is aimed at preventing the oilfields in the area from falling into the hands of the Daesh Takfiri terrorists. Damascus says the deployment is meant to plunder Syrian resources.
Former U.S. President Donald Trump admitted on more than one occasion that American forces were in Syria for its oil.
Having failed to oust the Syrian government through proxies and direct involvement in the conflict, the U.S. government has stepped up its economic war on the Arab country.
Reacting to illegal presence of U.S. forces in Syria, Russia’s Foreign Minister Lavrov said the U.S. forces continue to plunder Syria’s wealth extensively to support militants and separatist movements.
Last June, the U.S. enacted the so-called Caesar Act that imposed the toughest sanctions ever on Syria with the alleged aim of choking off revenue sources for the government.
The sanctions, however, have crippled the war-torn country’s economy by prohibiting foreign companies from trading with Damascus.
Officials also say the stepped-up smuggling of strategic Syrian resources is the latest inhumane tactic using people’s basic needs as a tool to pressure the government.
Syrian Foreign Minister Faisal al-Mekdad said in May that the United States is engaged in widespread plundering of Syria’s natural resources, and also reinforces terrorists to take on the Arab country.
“The U.S. ravages our resources and backs terrorist groups [inside Syria] by bringing weapons into the country,” Mekdad told Lebanon’s al-Mayadeen television network.
This is just a simple example for what the U.S. does in the countries under different pretexts and guises. Of course, the nations are waking up and they gradually notice that the world powers just think of their own benefits by their presence in the lands of other states and what they claim of protecting the nations and countries from the enemies and dictators are baseless because they just resort to those pretexts to justify their presence in the countries to loot the wealth of the nations.
Although Syria has reiterated that it can handle its domestic issues and confronting the Daesh and terrorists, the U.S. forces are not to leave this country and they have occupied the oil-reach area in this country and they continue stealing Syrian nation’s oil.
As usual, the toothless United Nations just is a looker-on and it does not take any strong action to stop this international robbery. So it is the task of Syrian nation and all freedom-loving nations to push the robber U.S. forces out of their lands like what the Islamic Republic of Iran has done and Iraq is on the verge of materializing it.
A united Syria can stop the U.S. from looting their wealth and it should not expect any assistance from the western-backed international bodies which come to the scene when the big powers are in the dangerous condition to save their faces.
