Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
(ANTIMEDIA) While the world is busy pretending to believe Donald Trump fired former FBI director James Comey because the president has a sinister closet of Russian skeletons to hide from the public, the United States is heading towards a direct war with its Cold War adversary in the most dangerous of scenarios.
According to the Telegraph, Syrian government troops are on a direct collision course with Western Special Forces after advancing towards a U.S. training base in eastern Syria over the weekend.
Pro-government forces are now within 15 miles of al-Tanf, a fortified base for American and British special forces that has been used to train Syrian rebel groups to fight ISIS near the Iraq border.
The “assault,” as noted by the Telegraph, is being led by Iranian forces who are commanding Syrian troops and Lebanese Hezbollah fighters. (Apparently, Syria is “assaulting” its own territory whereas U.S. and British troops have a legitimate reason to be there).
To make matters more dismal, these Assad loyalists are also being covered by Russian air power.
According to regional outlet al-Masdar, the aim of the Syrian offensive is to capture the Tanf Border Crossing, which links Baghdad to Damascus. With the prospects of U.S.-backed forces establishing a foothold along the strategic area, Damascus has made it a priority to reopen the highway and retake the area.
In doing so, Syria will not only establish a vital link to Iraq but will also establish a viable land route to Iran, a strategic ally of the Syrian government.
The offensive is also running in tandem with the Syrian government’s bid to reclaim Deir Ezzor from ISIS, another strategic area because it is home to Syria’s biggest oil deposit.
According to the Telegraph, the U.S. has said it will not tolerate any attack on its base in al-Tanf, but it is still unclear how Western forces will react to the approaching threat. Russia already bombed the area in June 2016, though no injuries to American or British troops were reported.
Well, if the Syrian military defeats ISIS in that area, there's no reason for the U.S. military to be there..........is there?
So,.......why does the Pentagon (this is not a Trump endeavor) REALLY want to be in Syria?
Why haven't they EVER given up on controlling Syria from General Clarke's revelation several years ago?
WHO THE HELL IS GIVING THE ORDERS AROUND HERE, ANYWAY?.............SOME ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT!
Did we forget why Japan invaded the Philippines? For that commodity needed for its economy ... after the USA ordered a stop to oil flowing into Japan. The progressive left thinks that windmills will solve the problem when they are our problem.
Russia needs oil, gas, and will do anything short of War with the USA to get it for their military industrial complex. That base of operations will become the new Berlin. This fall while the GOP & Dimms are working on a "budget" we all will see much more of a problem worldwide, that's why the can was kicked down the road where nothing will get done to slow government expansion into our lives.
