The Syrian Madhouse Gets Even Crazier | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

The Syrian Madhouse Gets Even Crazier

Why on earth are at least 2,000 US troops mixed up in this fracas in darkest Syria? Because the pro-Israel neocons in Washington, who pretty much run US foreign policy these days, are determined to have revenge for the defeat of US-backed rebel forces in Syria. So it’s once more into the breach near Afrin and the town Manbij though America has zero national interests in Syria. The US first tried to overthrow Syria’s governments in Damascus in 1948 because it was too independent and flirting with the Soviets. Today’s intervention is part of Israel’s plan to fragment Syria and gobble up its water and fertile land resources.

Worse, the Pentagon decided to enlist and arm rebellious Kurds in southern Turkey and Syria, and use them as ‘native troops’ to fight first the rag-tag bands of ISIS, then the Turkish armed forces. This was a terrible idea – compounded by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s incredibly foolish recent announcement that the US would mobilize, arm and finance a ‘border force’ of 30,000 Kurds that was closely tied to the Kurdish PKK rebel group. Washington has only a child’s understanding of events in Turkey and the dangers involved. Washington bills the PKK ‘terrorists.’ Clearly, it can’t even keep its ‘terrorists’ straight. The neocons under Trump have gutted the State Department.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am deeply concerned that a clash between Turkish and US military in Syria, will lead to broader confrontation against Russian forces here.

War in Syria, to fragment it, possibly involving Russian troops, is the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government could do right now; unfortunately, however, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing it could do, is absolutely zero guarantee that the US governmen will not do it.
