On Sept. 17th, 2016 – “ US, British, Danish and Australian forces carried out a well-planned (two to three days in the planning stages) and sustained (well over 30 minutes) attack on Syrian troops outside Deir ez-Zor which killed 62 Syrian soldiers and wounded another 100 or so. The Syrian forces at the time were engaged in a fight with “ISIS”, trying to keep them from an airport at that location. “ISIS” wanted the airport for resupply. After the Russians demanded the US-led coalition stop attacking Syrian forces, the US agreed and sat back and did nothing as “ISIS” took advantage of the incident and advanced on the airport” S.C.

On April 6th, 2017 – “While meeting with the president of China, the (Pentagon) launched an illegal and unauthorized attack on the Syrian military targeting the Ash Sha’irat airfield in Homs province, western Syria…. (Pentagon) had no authorization from congress to use military force against the Syrian government or it’s military… A week (earlier) the Secretary of State (the president and the Ambassador to the UN) said that the people of Syria would decide the fate of Assad (which signaled) our efforts to force regime change were over.” S.C.

On May 18th, 2017 – “Yesterday a small battalion size force (~2-300 men) of the regular Syrian army, Syrian National Defense Organization volunteers and Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces (PMF/PMU of the Kata’ib al-Imam Ali) marched on the road from the west towards al-Tanaf. They were about 23 kilometers away from the border station when they were attack by U.S. aircraft coming in low from Jordan. The U.S. jets directly fired at the convoy, allegedly after earlier giving some “warning shots”. At least one Syrian tank and several other vehicles were destroyed. Six Syrian government forces were reported killed and more were wounded.” Moon of Alabama

In each one of these cases, the Pentagon gave the authorization to attack the military of a sovereign nation absent any directive from the current/former president and they did so in a direct effort to aid either “moderate” rebels or “ISIS” which are fighting against the civilians and the government of Syria in an effort to force regime change.

In each one of these cases, the Pentagon did so in an effort to deliberately undermine international negotiations or existing peace deals between foreign governments and our State Department which were leading toward a deescalation of violence in the country.

When President Trump announced he had given authority to “the generals” to wage war in Syria as they see fit, it was a huge mistake. Since then they have done everything they could to undermine any semblance of normalcy in the country, opting instead to ferment more violence and terrorism on behalf of their stated goal of forcing regime change as well as the partitioning of the nation so they can hand over a good chunk of it to their latest “freedom fighters”, the Contras of Syria, the Kurds. The Greater Kurdistan project is still alive and well in their minds.

Yesterday the Pentagon attacked a convoy of Syrian forces who were moving to secure a border crossing at al-Tanaf which is at the nexus of the Syrian, Jordanian and Iraqi borders.

The U.S. and the British have been training terrorists in that area for about a year with the intention to march them up into Syria, to the east, so they can continue to terrorize civilian populations in an effort to depopulate the region and then hand it over to the Kurds.

Last year Sec. of Defense Ashton Carter made that operational plan very clear:

“We have now have momentum in this fight and clear results on the ground… We must ensure that our partners on the ground (freedom fighter Kurds) have what they need to win the fight and then hold, rebuild, and govern their territory (“Rojava”),” Sec. of Defense Ash Carter

Coalition forces have a history of allowing “ISIS” fighters to leave cities where we have them cornered so they can travel to another and depopulate that one as well.

Sky News reports yesterday’s attack on Syrian forces was done to protect U.S. and British troops while over at Slate they pretend they don’t know what the heck is going on.

Meanwhile Slate still promotes the official Pentagon line about the attack.

The Guardian says we attacked “Iran-backed militia men”… but keep in mind, if you go to the Guardian and leave a comment that in anyway contradicts the official right-think of the day… they will literally report you to your employer as a thought-criminal. I’m not kidding.

The Telegraph suggests Syria was “advancing on U.S. base in Syria” as if that is some kind of aggressive move on the part of the Syrian Arab Army. For those of you paying attention, the United States can’t have a base in Syria legally, because we are not invited into the country to “fight ISIS”. If we have a base inside Syria, it would be the same as if Cuba set up a base in Miami.

The New York Times says we hit a “pro-government militia” as if they were some sort of renegade rag-tag Ukrainian neo-Nazis or something. Or maybe like “pro-Trump” deplorables?

Interestingly, Syrian military leadership says the attack on the convoy was designed to support “ISIS” because that area is where they are being trained.

Russia and Syria have condemned US airstrikes targeting anti-Daesh forces, saying the “brazen” attacks violate the Arab country’s sovereignty and show Washington’s claims of fighting terrorism are false.

The Syrian resistance to our 6-year regime change operation is gaining momentum. As I reported the other day, the CIA’s “moderate” terrorists are fleeing the western half of the country in droves. Russian, Iranian and Turkish support of Syria have turned the tide and the Pentagon, the CIA and the rest of the Deep State are desperate to hold onto what they call “Rojava” which is nothing more than parts of eastern Syria they have stolen and now claim as their own.

It’s funny isn’t it how all those anti-Erdogan protesters run around with signs saying he made “ISIS” yet yesterday the Pentagon committed an act of war against a sovereign nation in order to protect their “ISIS” training facility.

The Syrians are pushing to the east and I believe they are looking to retake it all from what we call “ISIS” and the Kurds.

Trouble is, with the bought off leaders of the Pentagon calling all the shots, who knows where this will end up. And when the complicit media serves as their megaphones on a daily basis, they will certainly feel emboldened when backed up against a wall again.

Trump needs to get rid of them and do it quickly before “the generals” run us straight into a shooting war with Russia… with the MSM cheering it on all the way.
