Western coalition began the formation of "border security forces" in Syria

80
The Western coalition, led by the United States, has begun to create in Syria the so-called “border security forces” in its territory, reports RIA News message of the official representative of the alliance.




The coalition command is working on this project together with the Syrian Democratic Forces.

Currently, in the first class about 230 people are trained, the ultimate goal is to create a force of about 30 thousand people,
said Alliance Press Officer Thomas Wil.

According to him, "the new forces will be located along the valley of the Euphrates River, currently controlled by the VTS, as well as along the Iraqi and Turkish borders."

Recall that the "Syrian Democratic Forces" were formed with the active support of the United States in 2015, as officially stated, to fight the IG (the group is banned in the Russian Federation). Formations, consisting mainly of Syrian Kurds, received armament from the US coalition and were able to discourage terrorists from a number of areas in the north and east of the country on the left side of the Euphrates River. In addition, the US military and the Syrian opposition under their control took control of the area in the south of the country with the city of Tanf.

Reports of a new Washington initiative in the SAR appeared against the backdrop of threats from Turkish President Erdogan. On the eve, he said that the Turkish army will soon launch an operation in the Manbij and Afrin regions controlled by the YPG. At the same time, the Turkish leader, though he attacked the United States with harsh criticism, nevertheless, expressed the hope that Washington would support Ankara’s efforts.

        Along the border of the Euphrates River there is no Syria border, there is a border of post-war Syria, from which an independent Kurdish state will be separated and recognized in the image of Kosovo - a splinter in railway. Middle East states. Farce

                Google it and find out that the Syrian democratic forces have combat units of about 30 thousand soldiers, of which more than 25 thousand are Kurds. For Turkey, the created "security forces" are not just a trick on the part of the United States, it is literally a knife in the back.

                  You can google anything. What kind of fighters are these? How armed and equipped? How trained? To whom they obey, and whether they obey at all to someone. If 90% of them are some local militia fighting off from the broads in their native village, then this is not a threat at all to anyone.

                  For Turkey, the created "security forces" are not just a trick on the part of the United States, it is literally a knife in the back.

                  It seems to me that the option of "agreeing" on these will always be.

          But I’ll support the observer. Tell me, where is the breakthrough in politics over the past ten years? In Syria, everything rests on the wings of our aircraft and air defense. Yes, I agree, the Russian-speaking banderlogs ended up on foreign territory, but they didn’t bring peace, they only postponed the war We’ll stop bombing, Assad will be mixed with shit. Turkey’s allies have blabbed, what a breakthrough !!! You don’t need enemies with some friends! What’s cool? They press on all sides, but we only express concern. So, we need to be a patriot, not an idiot.

            Not only, but it’s also good to imagine where and in what dimensions (real war, economic, information-psychological, etc.) the front line passes. Further, what are our capabilities on each of the lines of this front, what are the enemy’s capabilities, based on this, make a decision.
            So far, everyone recognizes that we (having much worse opportunities) are waging this war more successfully.

    Erdogan himself formed the attitude of the Kurds towards him. On the other hand, you can say that you’ll disentangle yourself and it’s all right, let the muzzles hit each other, but then, this dirty trick has settled down - America, which will create another terrorist group - and it will move to Damascus with renewed vigor. This is the whole problem, not the disassembly of the Turks with the Kurds.

      Quite the contrary, the Kurds themselves formed Erdogan’s attitude. In fact, they switched to an armed struggle with the Turkish authorities before Erdogan went into politics.

      Erdogan himself has no special field for maneuver. Somehow, the environment will not change the attitude towards the Kurds. Only an unconditional cessation of armed struggle and disarmament.

        In Turkey itself, the larger population of the Kurds and the devil knows who annoyed someone first, and it doesn’t matter at the moment. But the solution to the problem by peaceful means - well, it doesn’t work out - all three sides are for the military actions of Turkey - the Kurds - and this one, which you do not feed with bread, but let me create a military conflict. There is an option with Russia - it will persuade two, but there are problems with the enemy’s erysipelas. And is it worth it to bother those who wish?

    So quietly peaceful, under the exclamations about the fight against terrorism, the formation of yet another Kosovo is taking place, only on Syrian territory. The Americans are trying to divide the country, rather than try on the warring. I think Israel will soon be connected. In essence, with the collapse of the country, the legitimate heir to Syrian lands disappears, who then will need to demand and return the Golan.

      Actively against Turkey. Actively against Iraq, a formal ally of the United States. And do not take into account their opinion, fraught with huge problems. A drift towards Iran for Iraq, a further drift of Turkey towards a regional power with an independent policy. All these things are very, very unpleasant for Americans.

        But try to consider this situation from the point of conflict escalating into a protracted war. The Americans themselves will not climb, but they will help with arms and in any case they will win. The goal is to continue the conflict

          A protracted war?
          American oil workers cannot go to it in principle. This is an unequivocal cessation of the supply of oil stolen from Baghdad. Now it goes through Turkey, but in a situation of a full-fledged war, the channel will be closed.
          They may try to break through the corridor to the Mediterranean Sea along the Syrian-Turkish border, but this is rather from the category of unscientific fiction. Even if Damascus does not fit due to weakness, Ankara will certainly fit.

            This is only Turkey’s problem, the stolen oil doesn’t reach the United States. Their trump card is different, they supply weapons with conflicts, and the chaos pays off in triple because of the flight of finances!

              Of course it doesn't. They reach the money. For example, Kirkuk is ExxonMobil and Chevron Corporation. The first and second in the list of the largest American energy companies with a reinforced concrete lobby in government

    they pretended not to understand who fired at our base, and who tried to attack it with drones!

    I missed, but my wife said that they figured out where the drones were launched from and sent a response. Right now I'm looking for a video ..

    The faster Assad gathers his strength and cleans the Euphrates, the better.

    Erdogan himself fell into his own power because he had previously supported the United States in aggression against Syria. Merikans are people with their own cockroaches in their heads, who have so many opinions, how many cockroaches themselves. For them, the Kurds are now like a lifesaver to stay in Syria and at least somehow level off Putin’s victory in Syria. And it may happen that in a month, half a year, the Merikans will change their minds about the Kurds, but for this, something should change not in favor of the United States, that cooperation with the Kurds will be unprofitable for them.

    Sliberalichi in Syria, allowed the United States to essentially begin the collapse of the country! It was tougher to act!
    You speak anti-Putin. According to Putin, stir it up so that the devil breaks his leg. God forbid to fight under the leadership of such a military leader. Who is against. Let their children be given under such a strategist. Step forward. Two back.

    If you write the Lord with a capital letter, do not mention in vain.

    I think neither Iran, nor Turkey and Iraq will agree to have an independent Kurdistan in Syria, because other Kurds will want to unite. By suppressing the armed gangs inside the territory, the SAA will regain everything that hands now do not reach.

    Having screwed up with plans to take control of all of Syria, the stripes decided to build a pseudo-state in the occupied territory controlled by militants. If the Kurds have a glimpse of consciousness, besides ambition, they will begin to negotiate with Assad. If they agree, then it will remain only striped to merge from Syria, so there is something to bargain with Assad. If not, they will be taken hostage, like the Afghan authorities. Striped and local "well-wishers" like Turkey and Syria will leave, they will be jointly dragged along the bones, albeit enemies among themselves. And the stripes will definitely have to be dumped - the region becomes extremely dangerous for them.
