What stops America from bombing Syria?

What is stopping the Americans from a military strike on Syria? What is the interest of the French and British oil companies in the intervention? For whom the "Islamic bell" may toll? Head of the Institute of Applied Research of Oriental and African Studies, Said Gafurov, answered these and other questions in the live video feed of Pravda.Ru.

Last week The New York Times published an op-ed by Vladimir Putin. Do you think it makes sense to address the American nation?

"I think it made a lot of sense. You have to understand who the target audience of this op-ed was. I think it sounds a bit cynical, but it was not an appeal to the nation. It is difficult to address the nation; it was rather an appeal to the American establishment, the American bureaucracy in general and, first of all, of course, the appeal to the Office of the Secretary of State. We always forget that there is no unity of interest or unity of purpose in the American politics.

The American politics is the result of many, often conflicting vectors. One of the important elements in the formation of the U.S. foreign policy in any field is the position of the State Department, the position of the diplomatic apparatus, the state apparatus. These are people who do not change with a new president, they are independent of political matters, therefore they are very influential not even in the decision-making, but in the development of these decisions, and it is a very important step.

Putin's op-ed, in my opinion, is aimed, above all, at the apparatus. He used arguments that are understood by the apparatus. These arguments are not for The New York Times. This is a liberal newspaper, workers do not read it, it is not for store clerks or even bankers, it is for government officials.
