The Pentagon called the number of US troops in Syria and Iraq


The representative of the United States Ministry of Defense Rob Manning said that at the moment in Syria there are about 2-x thousand troops, in Iraq - about 5,2 thousand. He said this during a briefing held at the Pentagon.

“What does it mean to“ get the fight against ISIS (*) to a new stage, ”Rob Manning did not explain. However, he confirmed the earlier statement by the head of the Pentagon, James Mattis, that the US troops would remain in Syria "until the success of the Geneva process." This is a process in which no progress has been achieved on resolving the situation in the Syrian Arab Republic for all the time that the Geneva format exists.

Recall that on the eve of the Russian Defense Ministry issued a statement on the complete liberation of Syria from terrorists. We are talking about the release of terror from ISIS (*). Meanwhile, in the SAR, territories that are controlled by groups affiliated with Al-Qaida (* banned in the Russian Federation) are preserved.

      But why rush, let them return to the States, slowly go crazy and shoot the peace people at country festivals. Something in the morning I’m unkind.
      Father-in-law said yesterday that Russia needs to go to the Winter Olympics, but not to South Korea, to North. They argued until the morning, so I didn’t get enough sleep. smile

    “The exit of the fight against ISIS (*) to a new stage”

    The Americans are now only strengthening their verbiage in pursuit of a single goal - to gain a foothold in Syria for a long time.

    They will reform the igil and nusra for a new stage of the civil war in both Syria and Iraq. Only by force of arms do you need to drive the Yankees out of these countries! No negotiations - let the "say" weapon in the hands of Syrian fighters.
