Flashback: August 18/2017- US to Remain In Syrian “Kurdistan” For Decades After ISIS is “Defeated”
In plain talk: US to REMAIN in ethnically cleansed/illegally/criminally annexed portion of Syria- permanently. As the regional remake continues on. If you have read here for the past 3- 4 years you would be aware this was the plan. It was not a happenstance or a random occurrence.
If you read elsewhere you would have believed the Kurdish militias were:
1- allies of Assad
2- the best fighters against ISIS
And you would have been
3- played for a fool
Regional remake. Creating a weaponized refugee outflow. Creating an Israel 2.0 for the benefit of Israel 1.0. Accessing water and energy resources for purposes of total control. And profit. All in plain site.
Acknowledging troop presence
The Pentagon is likely to announce in the coming days that there are about 2,000 U.S. troops in Syria, two U.S. officials said on Friday, as the military acknowledges that an accounting system for troops has under-reported the size of forces on the ground.
The U.S. military had earlier publicly said it had around 500 troops in Syria, mostly supporting the Syrian Democratic Forces group of Kurdish and Arab militias fighting Islamic State in the north of the country.Two U.S. officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the Pentagon could, as early as Monday, publicly announce that there are slightly more than 2,000 U.S. troops in Syria.
