    Talk about an empire going wild in its last days. Washington is now invading the sovereign nation of Syria under a pretext of fighting ISIS, when what they're really fighting is Damascus to keep Assad from defeating ISIS. How about a little respect for the American people, and tell them what Washington's intents really are before we're all buried in a nuclear holocaust.

    The lies and hypocrisy is sickening:

    1- Sept. 16, US coalition struck the Syrian army near the Deir ez-Zor airport and killed almost 100 people.

    2- April 6, US destroyers fired 59 cruise missiles at Ash Sha'irat airbase saying it's a warning over a false flag chemical incident when no proof was ever presented.

    3- May 18, American coalition hit pro Assad fighters near al-Tanf.

    4- June 6, coalition struck pro Syrian government forces as they entered an unauthorized de- confliction zone with the lie they posed a threat.

    5- June 8, coalition bombed pro Damascus forces near the town of al- Tanf.


    "The US has redeployed two High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems from Jordan to a US special operations forces base near the Syrian town of al-Tanf [18 kilometers from the Jordanian border]. Deployment of any foreign weaponry to Syria, especially multiple artillery rocket systems, has to be coordinated with the sovereign state's government", the (Russian) ministry's statement read.

    "The US-led anti-Daesh coalition has several times already attacked Syrian government forces fighting Daesh near the Jordanian border. It is possible to assume that similar strikes could be continued in the future, involving HIMARS from now on. So what objectives is the US pursuing in Syria and whom are the US servicemen fighting there?", the statement said.

    This foreign entanglement in Syria just keep getting more disturbing.

    Trump is turning out to be just as bad as Obama - a Terrorist supporting clown.

    It's all about the LNG pipelines.

    Do we get control or does Russia...that is what this proxy war is all about.

    What surprises me is seeing several posters here who, despite being aware of the role of Israel and the pro Israeli lobby in much of the policies the US pursues in the region, including the Iraq war and then the Syrian bloodbath, nonetheless thought Trump - who never hid his desire to be regarded as the best friend of Israel's right wing and the Israeli government -- would somehow end up being better than Obama on these kind of issues. The truth is that America's policies in the region, including in Syria, are driven by those who are beholden to either or both the military industrial complex and to the pro Israeli lobby. And while Trump might not be beholden to them the same way some regular politicians are, he is ultimately keen on making sure neither of those two groups turn on him. In fact, he likes to advertise being their best friends. It kind of reminds me of those who felt that Bush-Cheney would be better than Gore-Lieberman in 2000 on these kind of issues, when in fact Bush-Cheney were in the same group as Lieberman, while Gore was at least a bit more nuanced and like Bill Clinton was closer to the Labor wing of Israeli politics as opposed to any figure the Israelis chose to peddle their cause. (Hillary, however, was willing to sleep with any of the pro Israeli crowd and her policies in Syria, against Iran, viz a viz Wahhabi Arabia, would be pretty much the same as Trump's).

    My guess is this deployment was in the pipeline before Syria did an end-around the so-called 'deconfliction zone' to the Iraq border. Now, with its being there, it has no mission. Being the opportunistic vultures they are, the US will likely keep them there as intimidation while waiting for a change on the ground.

    Russia is being clear about how it regards this system and it's doubtful that it will be put to use. Syria and its allies do need to re-enforce the territory north of the US's encampment and not give another inch of territory. Right now the Syrian line in that area looks flimsy. A trigger force, at least, needs to be strung out along the line.

    There are other reasons as well, like removing all of Irans allies prior to the invasion of Iran.

    How I wish Russia and China would make an agreement with Mexico
    or a nation of Central America, or even Cuba ;) to do the same.
    Same is as same does.

    The insanity of :flagus: weapons use on innocent people these last years is beyond comprehension.
    That's weapons use by proxy or directly!

    It is more likely a Russian and / or Chinese move would bring peace than the :flagus: people would elect a pacifist or anti war government.
    Notice how even Trump has been corrupted by the War We Must crowd in the Swamp.

    Look for a False Flag attack by Syrian forces on US forces to justify taking out Assad.
