The military situation in Syria: Americans washed their hands

5
After threats from Turkey to launch a large-scale operation against US-backed Kurdish militia in the city of Afrin, the US military command "washed its hands."


As stated by Pentagon spokesman Colonel Raina Dillon, the US Army does not provide any support to the Kurdish forces in the area. The colonel noted that Afrin is not in the zone of US interests, and direct assistance to the Kurds is provided only in the Euphrates valley, north of the city of Abu Kemal.

At the same time, Turkey continued to transfer troops to Syrian territory. Artillery and Tanks. Moreover, the Turks deployed air defense systems, hinting to the Americans about the decisiveness of their actions.

The Turkish military has set more than 150 targets for a first strike against the Kurds and, as the Defense Ministry said, they will not limit themselves to the Afrin city.

      "Help" to the Kurds in the Euphrates Valley - the tearing away of oil fields from Syria. This is the goal and here is the policy to achieve this goal. But in Afrin there is no oil; it is not interesting to Americans.

    Option:
    The Americans and the Turks developed the operation:
    The Turks, under the pretext of attacking the Kurds, are introducing their troops into Syria and are practically occupying it without a fight. And they create their base. And note that no one understood. And the Americans pretended that they had nothing to do with it!
