US Warns Syrian Military… Against Operating Inside Syria!

Just when you thought US foreign policy could not get more absurd. Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, who is listed as “commander of US forces in Iraq and Syria,” has issued a warning to the Syrian military that if its counter-insurgency operations on Syrian soil leave US troops on Syrian soil “feeling threatened,” the US military would “defend itself.”

That needs to be broken down to even be believed.

The Syrian military is fighting an armed uprising on its own soil. The US government is training and equipping several factions of that armed insurgency, in this case the Kurdish YPG militia. The US military is also operating on Syrian soil alongside and in support of the YPG militia. Members of the YPG militia have, over the past several days, been firing on Syrian government forces. The Syrian air force returns fire on its own soil and the US military that is illegally operating on Syrian soil issues a warning to the Syrian government to stop firing on insurgents on Syrian soil!

The US government has a military “commander” commanding US forces operating illegally – according to US and international law – on a foreign country’s soil.

Logic might suggest that if the US military does not want its Special Forces to feel threatened by Syrian government counter-insurgency activities, perhaps it should remove them from that foreign territory in which they are illegally operating.

But the empire creates its own logic and it is not for we mere mortals to understand it. If the Pentagon and the military-industrial complex want to threaten war in Syria (which will be de facto war with Russia) it is not our place to question it. We just plug in to our television screens and feel that soothing sound of state propaganda telling us it’s all being done to keep us safe. There, that feels better…

  1. The US is trying to manufacture a conflict between Syria and Rojava in order to doom both to endless destabilization. The YPG was cooperating with Assad’s boys before we infiltrated their ranks. Somethings up. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if those “YPG attacks” were launched by US special forces without the YPG’s knowledge or consent. The Kurds need to wise up to this sh*t and kick the Yankee’s out before it’s too late.

  2. Let’s stop calling these commanders generals of U.S forces and instead generals of Globalist forces. Who the hell does this idiot think he is? He is operating in Syria uninvited and if his forces are participating in attacks against the Syrian Military, then the general is committing an act of war of aggression. The Syrian Military has every right to attack the attackers in their own country.

    1. Now survivor, the last thing we’re going to tolerate is your outbursts of common sense. Off to a semester at American University with you so you might better understand how things work in our New Century America.

  3. All this because they wanted to build their own 10 Billion dollar pipeline to export energy and rejected the offer made by the ”competition”.

  4. Let’s remember what Hillary has said about Syria: “The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad.” So when this israel firster becomes President you can count on Uncle Sam taking on not only the Syrian gov’t but also the Russian Air Force.
