US troops and Russia-backed Syrian forces set to come into contact as they close in separately on Isis

US-backed forces and Syrian government troops, supported by Russia and Iran, look set to come into contact as they each make separate advances against Isis in Syria.

The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) launched an offensive against Isis along the border with Iraq on Saturday, bringing them into a race with government forces marching in the same direction against the extremists.

The duelling battles for Deir Ezzor highlight the importance of the oil-rich eastern province, which has become the latest focus of the international war against tIsis, raising concerns of an eventual clash between the two sides.

The US-trained Deir Ezzor Military Council said it was calling its operation Jazeera Storm, after the familiar name for northeast Syria. The Military Council is a part of the predominantly-Kurdish SDF which enjoys broad U.S. military support. The SDF are the US's primary ally in the fight against Isis in Syria

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could wind up with a confrontation between the US proxy forces, and Iranian/Russian Syrian forces, and quickly.

Unfortunately, it DOES appear that the Unhinged, Surveilled States of Amerika are itching for a world war, and doesn't really care where or how it starts.
