US Base at Al-Tanfi - a symbol of the collapse of the American dream



The fight against terrorism in the Syrian Arab Republic (SAR) is in its final stages, but it is premature to speak of a complete victory over the radicals. One of the main obstacles preventing government forces from putting an end to the longstanding conflict is the US military base in Al-Tanfa.

On the territory declared by Washington as a no-fly zone, several terrorist groups are based: “Jaysh Asuad Al-Shakriya” (“Eastern Lions”), “Kuwat Shahid Ahmad Abdu”, “Liva Shuhada Al-Qaryayatin” and others. Most of this rabble is consulted by US special operations forces and is actively funded by the US budget.

It is noteworthy that among the wards of Washington there is a considerable percentage of drug addicts and alcohol addicts. Also in social networks it is reported that in the refugee camp of Al-Rukban, where families of terrorists live, the number of patients with venereal diseases is growing. However, in this situation, the States do not have to choose.

In fact, the pack assembled in Al-Tanf is the only argument that preserves Washington’s illusions to create in the south of the SAR independent of official Damascus the Federation of Eastern Syria. Nevertheless, the chances of making the American dream come true are crumbling before our eyes.

As you know, in the south-east of the country, government forces continue to engage in fierce clashes with ISIL militants (the organization is banned in Russia). One of the key settlements that the army of the SAR is to be liberated in the near future is the city of Abu Kemal. If the operation succeeds, the Syrian army gets a part of the border with Iraq, which is unlikely to be won back by the gangs supervised by the international coalition.

It should be noted that the possibility of gaining full control over the southern border of Iraq was one of the main factors forcing the Pentagon to leave at its neck the terrorist trash in Al Tanf. Obviously, Washington continues to lure this reserve to its hour, giving the report that this hour, apparently, will not come.

As for the militants, they, taught by the bitter experience of fighting government forces, have no desire to return to the "front". The last argument forcing terrorists to make unsuccessful attempts at an offensive is the fear of losing revenues from controlling smuggling routes and the threat of patrons to cut off their funding.

However, "monetary circumcision" can not be avoided. Given that General Suheil’s assault groups have already landed on the Syrian-Iraqi border, and the Russian Aerospace Forces are “processing” militant objects in the Abu Kemal area, the day when the American Et-Tanf project ceases to exist, not far off.

    When will Assad have the courage to declare the US an aggressor, or is he waiting for a team from Moscow? Okay, the Turks for operations in Syria are a temporary ally for Russia, and the Americans are direct enemies! Or am I not seeing something from my sofa?

    "It is also reported in social networks that the number of people with sexually transmitted diseases is growing in the Rukban refugee camp, where terrorist families live."
    Doesn't lead to any thoughts? But you can send a kind of "Mary the artisan", seriously get down to business.
    The "innocent" truth will also suffer, otherwise it is customary in the families of strict Muslims about evil diseases to remain silent and get sick with the whole family from small to old.

    What is surprising? What barmaley alcohol addicted? There are entire neighborhoods of such dependent countries in a democracy. To interest such addicts. just spit. They are cheap. They themselves are disposed of. Considering that the United States covers drugs, consider the content of such troops for free. Another thing is surprising. Why is there no effective response to such degenerates? In fact, the army is fighting against alcoholics and drug addicts and cannot defeat them. Why?

      you know, but not all the same there as described. Clearly, different technologies are used to force some to fight. However, the backbone of the gangs are obsessed and fanatical. It is very difficult to fight with such, especially when the army is not particularly different endurance and discipline.

      Islamic radicals are alcohol dependent? Something is hard to believe ... Maybe they also gobble up pork?

    When will Assad have the courage to declare the US an aggressor, or is he waiting for a team from Moscow?

    Assad has repeatedly stated that the Americans are illegally in Syria, and the territories under them are occupied. A sense. The UN modestly keeps silent about it, but loudly from the American voice trumpets Assad's atrocities. While the ball in international organizations rule the United States with the support of their satellites, truth and justice cannot be achieved.

      You can admire the atrocities of Assad in South Tube, starting with the sadistic tortures and murders of all who come to hand when Shabikha was still nightmare by the police, but there were a lot of blame about the Africans in Syria, but there weren’t any facts. Particularly touching are the statements that it’s just because Assad said!)) Who generally believes Assad?

          Yes, Lanna to you, joke everything ... For me it’s time to present evidence or not to disgrace. At the official level, they carry this nonsense, it’s understandable why, but to normal people, why should this be done.

            Well, yes, not everything is so smooth in Syria, the war .... America, too, doesn’t show any evidence about Assad, agree, basically it all comes down to the fact that he is to blame and that's all .... Where is the concrete evidence, no, but executions of militants and everything else are shown here and there ..... Russia and America are playing a long-standing game of who whom, but in reality it’s a cover, this secret alliance of “sword and yelling” is organizing their game in the world ..... If look carefully, then America and Russia play along with each other, these two modes can not exist otherwise .... hi

    And the level of IQ is not reported by these sources? So stupid propaganda pisyulki have long been gone. On VO, every second article begins with the headings "NATO in horror / in panic / fears" or "The collapse of the United States", the failure of the European Union, the Syrian deadlock for America. Itself is not bothered to write such nonsense. Lately, sitting on the BO has become like digging in a dustbin. So much trash you need to browse to find the worth information.

    "Most of this rabble is consulted by US special operations forces and heavily funded by the US budget."
    The topic of America’s support for the militants of the banned state is constantly being circulated on this site, and they write about it as some kind of fact that does not require evidence. And I personally wonder if there are any financial papers, reports and evidence of this funding, or does propaganda work for a sucker? I’m sure where the thread in the states is similarly talking about Russia. Are there any real facts besides la-la on patriotic sites and Photoshop Zakharova with Ben-Laden in the White House? Fool, don’t attack me like dogs in a pack, I’m just really interested where this infa comes from.

    Most likely this base will be surrounded, and they will spread rot both morally and physically.

    You can drive the bandits to the walls and groan on them, accidentally hitting the base. And so on all sides, so that the fragments flew around the base daily.

    Without food and water, they will not be able to resist for a long time ...

    Anyway, to say that the Syrian government wants to conduct a search there for terrorists and illegally imported weapons into the country. This is their country and their business is where to conduct searches, arrests.
