    Default BREAKING: US Bombs Assad (Again)

    http://thehill.com/policy/defense/33...itary-in-syria

    U.S. forces bombed a militia aligned with Syrian president Bashar Assad in southern Syria, a Pentagon official confirmed Thursday. The strike took place in At Tanf near Syria's border with Jordan and Iraq, the official said. The United States has been using the area to train its partnered local forces. The official could not immediately provide more information on the strike, including whether the strike was in defense of the partnered forces and the makeup of the militia that was struck. A statement from U.S. Central Command will come shortly, the official said.

    That said, it's also the natural continuation of Trump's inherited regime change policy in Syria.

    This was going to happen anyway, and will be happening again, but I agree that the timing of this particular strike is likely political.

    Details of US attack on Syrian military in southern Syria:

    The U.S. Coalition attacked a Syrian military convoy traveling through the southeastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, today, the Pentagon reported.

    The Pentagon claimed a Syrian military convoy was heading towards their positions, when they decided to issue a warning; this was ignored, so the Coalition attacked the convoy.

    Al-Masdar reached out to the Syrian military for details regarding today’s attack by the U.S. Coalition; so far, this is what’s known:

    • The U.S. Coalition warplane entered Syrian airspace from the Jordanian border.
    • Six military personnel were killed and another three were wounded.
    • A convoy of five T-62 tanks were hit by the U.S. Coalition.
    • Two tanks were destroyed.
    • A Shilka was damaged.
    • Convoy consisted of soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), National Defense Forces (NDF), Hezbollah, and Imam Al-‘Ali Battalions.

    So first we accidentally bomb Syrian side for an hour.
    Then we bomb cuz Trump is a dupe for Al Qaeda propaganda.
    Now we bomb because Syrian allies are marching down a Syrian road and we "feel threatened".

    I'm losing the energy to even comment on anything anymore. Everything is so blatantly over-the-top ridiculous in nearly every context even detached sarcastic mocking seems overly redundant.

    I mean what's our rationale again, just want to make sure I got it straight:

    Assad is a dictator.
    His use of chemical weapons created a civil war.
    That civil war allows ISIS and Al Qaeda to flourish.
    We need to train people covertly by sending our troops into Syria and occupying Syrian territory so that we can train some of the less "Jihadi" militants to help join the anti-Assad side of this conflict but also push back against the really bad Jihadi's.
    This is all legal because 9/11 even though 16 of 19 hijackers were Saudi, and next week our President will go bow to the Saudi Kings.
    If you have a problem with any of this you are a Russian spy.

    Default US Warplanes Attack Pro-Assad Forces in Southern Syria


    US Warplanes Attack Pro-Assad Forces in Southern Syria


    Accuses Forces of Getting Within 55 km (34 miles) of US Training Base

    US warplanes attacked a vehicle convoy in what they are describing as a “deescalation zone” near al-Tanf, identifying the targets are Pro-Assad forces, and destroying multiple vehicles. Casualty figures are as of yet unknown, and the US is claiming the attack was “defensive in nature.”

    A number of questions are unclear, as the US is identifying the targets as “Assad forces” or “regime vehicles,” but some media reports identify them as simply Shi’ite militias. The deescalation zone appears to refer to the southern safe zone in Syria, around Daraa.

    That’s confusing, however, because Pentagon officials also claim the targeted forces were within 55km (34 miles) of a “US training base” at al-Tanf, where US ground troops are stationed, and the Daraa safe zone appears farther away from the area that base is in.

    The US described the base as housing special forces training rebels to fight against the Assad government. The Tanf base has also been a target of ISIS in recent weeks. They are insisting the presence of those special forces justified the attack on the convoy, insisting it was purely defensive and does not mark a change in US policy.

    US officials also appear confused about the timing of the attack, claiming they warned Russia that the convoy was inside the safe zone and gave Russia time to try to get in contact with them, which other officials presented the “warning” as a military show of force, sending warplanes to “buzz” the convoy a couple of times then attacking when they didn’t turn around.

    Yeah even though Trump was cool with the NEVERRONPAUL neocons and brought them with him to his cabinet. I am confident if Rand Paul wasn't there John Bolton would be the secretary of state. He definitely wasn't shy about keeping Reince Priebus around.

    I put into google maps for directions from Tanf, Syria to Daraa, Syria: by land it takes 4 hours and 45 minutes. How can the U.S. Pentagon argue that a town 4 hours and 45 minutes away from a declared safe zone in Daraa was even part of that safe zone? The Syrians purposely did not include Tanf, Syria as part of the safe zone because they want to re-implement the Damascus to Baghdad highway which goes right through Tanf, Syria which is near the Syrian/Iraqi border. And members of the Popular Mobilization Forces, which is sponsored by the Iraqi government and has fought in Mosul, also want that connection between the two countries because they feel an alliance with the Assad government. And you are right, Hillary and Obama safe zones were always about using these areas as military training camps. But my understanding is that the town of Tanf in Syria was never even included in the safe zones agreement. There is so much propaganda being spewed right now by our government and the prostitutes in the U.S. media it is difficult to figure out what they are saying and why they are saying it.

    Default Syrian Army reinforcements pour into the Syrian desert despite US airstrikes


    Syrian Army reinforcements pour into the Syrian desert despite US airstrikes:


    On Thursday evening, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) sent over a dozen technicals to the Damascus-Baghdad highway to reinforce contingents bombed by the United States Air Force earlier in the day.

    The newly arrived SAA reinforcements will spearhead a drive towards the Al-Tanf border crossing with Iraq alongside the National Defence Forces (NDF), Hezbollah (Lebanese paramilitary), Imam Al-Ali Battalions (Iraqi paramilitary) and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (Syrian paramilitary).

    However, government forces must stiffen their salient east of Damascus and deploy anti-aircraft units if they are to avoid renewed attacks from US jets and US-trained Free Syrian Army proxies lurking in the vast Syrian desert.

    Meanwhile, SAA units are also advancing against FSA rebels in eastern Sweida, capturing a large swath of rural territory on Thursday.

    Over 100 SAA soldiers have been killed by US airstrikes, mostly at Deir Ezzor, over the 12 months. Nevertheless, the SAA is yet to conduct a single direct hostility against US troops whom are present in both northern and southern Syria despite vocal objections from Damascus.

Rand was talking to Trump 2-3 times a week, and Rand told Trump straight up it wasn't going to pass, it didn't have the votes. Trump knew it wasn't going to pass, so he supported it to make sure it was all Paul Ryan's failure and none of it could be blamed on him. Trump hates Paul Ryan.

    Trump is going to help save Syria, with Russia's help.
