MOSCOW, 12 APR — RIA Novosti. The operation to capture the Iraqi Mosul, coalition forces led by the US is likely to be used by Washington in order to bring political dividends of the outgoing democratic administration of Barack Obama, and to strengthen the position of Hillary Clinton on the eve of presidential elections, said RIA Novosti on Wednesday, a military analyst, Professor of political science and sociology, Russian University of Economics named after G. V. Plekhanov, candidate of political Sciences Alexander perendzhiev.
Informed military-diplomatic source in Moscow told RIA Novosti that the US and Saudi Arabia agreed to provide militants of the “Islamic state” (banned in Russia) possibilities of a safe exit from Iraq Mosul to the beginning of its assault forces of the international coalition. According to the source, the us-Saudi plan also provides for the transfer of more than 9 thousand fighters from Mosul to the East of Syria to attack the government forces controlled by Syria, Palmyra and Deir-ez-Zor.
“I doubt that the Saudis and Americans will be able to realize your plan, since the “Islamic state” has Iraqi roots, Mosul — their reference base and to leave Iraq of course, they don’t want to. There will likely be some kind of imitation — Mosul remains in the hands of terrorists, some of which just go to Syria, and the rest will pretend to give up. Americans can expect propaganda statements, in the eve of presidential elections the Democrats will try to ascribe these successes,” said Perendzhiev.
According to him, with the help of bargaining and bribing the terrorists, the US will try to kill two birds with one stone — add to the asset of the ruling democratic party, the liberation of Mosul and redirect the flow of terrorists from Iraq to Syria.
“Americans can say that they agreed that their military and political victory, but it is worth to note that the United States claimed that they’re willing to take the Syrian Raqqa — the capital of LIH (the group “Islamic state” banned in Russia), but so far no attempt in this direction is not taken. Apparently, the US wants to clear out of Iraq and redirect the entire flow of terrorists to Syria,” — said the expert.
In his opinion, the terrorists shortly after the Declaration of the victory of the USA in Mosul will return to this city because it is a milestone for the Islamic state — with his capture began the territorial expansion of ISIS.
