US intends to send additional military contingent to Syria

The US Department of Defense intends to send about 150 troops to Syria to carry out joint ground patrols with Turkey. This is reported by the newspaper. The New York Times.


US intends to send additional military contingent to Syria


According to the publication, the Pentagon is considering the possibility of sending to the north-east of Syria an additional military contingent of 150 troops who will take part in joint patrols with the Turkish military. This decision is contrary to the decree of US President Donald Trump on the gradual withdrawal of US troops from Syrian territory. On the other hand, the newspaper writes, joint patrolling will reduce the degree of tension that has arisen between Turkey and the United States due to Washington’s support for Kurdish armed forces.

In turn, the Pentagon refused to comment on the message about sending additional forces to Syria. According to the representative of the US Department of Defense Sean Robertson, "the alignment of US forces in Syria has not changed."

The strategy of our forces in Syria has not changed. Although we are working on the implementation of the president’s decree to deliberately and coordinately withdraw troops from Syria, the level of strength will be dictated by local conditions. For security reasons, we will not discuss specific numbers or dates.

- he said.

Earlier it was reported that Turkey and the United States are negotiating the creation of a “security zone” in northern Syria, where Syrian refugees from Turkey can return and become a “buffer zone” in front of the Turkish border. In turn, US officials said that this "security zone" would help prevent the "revival of the Islamic State" (a terrorist organization banned in Russia).

Note that at present, the US military contingent in Syria is a little less than one thousand troops.

        Nonsense. Syria is already divided into zones of influence. Assad will also send Turkey ?? And no one invited them. Both they and the Americans are sheer orderly. Like Israeli aviation.

        Considering that these "crows" themselves carry garbage, arranging garbage cans and producing rats, then so and yes. For the sanitary condition there is still a long time to mess around.

    Poor Syria, nothing at all, but also tearing it to pieces. Something seems to me that our Lavrov hastened to declare the end of the war in Syria, it just won’t end there.

    How so? Lavrov, on the other hand, just recently said that there is no more war in Syria. However, everyone who was there remained there. And we are the States and Turks and Kurds and terrorists and "moderate" opposition. And the war is gone. How so?

      Bandera’s and all other forest brothers also won 60 years ago, however, they crawled out of the underground, if there is propaganda and money, it’s just not possible to defeat terrorists, we are also constantly being introduced into the UK by the CTO, these are single people, maximum 3-4 people, but massive combat there is no action, and in Syria, there are small groups, but to capture, say Aleppo, they can’t do it, so shit on the small

    What, the fire of "safety zones" is dying out? Need to throw some "firewood"?

    This decision is contrary to the decree of US President Donald Trump on the gradual withdrawal of US troops from Syrian territory.

    Donya, if you’re not in the know, I remind you that you, in the USA, have 17 special services and almost a million agents around the world
    (CIA, FBI and NSA are just the tip of the spy iceberg) bully . In the event of stability in the world, will you place them in your Trump Hotel and feed them?

    about 150 troops to carry out joint ground patrols with Turkey
    In order not to go into a hard confrontation, they decided to organize joint patrols. Although both countries in Syria are illegally and each pursue exclusively its own mercantile goals and have nothing to do with the fight against terrorism.
    currently the US military contingent in Syria is a little less than one thousand troops
    But this is probably without instructors, special forces. Plus aviation, which works with airfields of other countries. If the Americans declare only one thousand, then how many of the coalition gathered around the world are probably only tens of people.

    An interesting position of the American military elite - the president of course ordered, but we know better on the spot ..

        In the army you can have an opinion and even disagreement, but the execution of the order is primary. And if you slow down the execution of an order with an action or inaction, then this is called sabotage.

            This means open sabotage. If the top of the army openly sabotages the decisions of its commander in chief - this is already the problem of the commander in chief. What will he do and will there be a drum in this situation for me.

    we support 10-15 percent of the Alawite population in Syria. it's like the same 10-15 percent in Bahrain is a Sunni. which is supported by the KSA.
    Assad himself needs to prove that he is the leader not only of the Alawites. in all the peoples of Syria.

    Americans and Turks agree on joint patrols of the zone
    the contact of the Turks and Kurds in Syria.
    So that units of Kurdish militants do not penetrate into Turkey with terrorist attacks.
    And so that there are no random skirmishes of the Turkish army and the Kurds.

      They simply pretended that they were real allies, but at the same time they didn’t resolve the real contradictions. And they have opposite interests. What Heydar Jemal said about the Americans.

      And what kind of Turkey do the United States want to see? What purpose do they achieve?

      - They want to deprive Turkey of the eastern territories, which will be transferred to Kurdistan. Iraqi and Turkish Kurdistan will be a very powerful entity that will have its own oil and human resources. There will also include the territory of the Syrian Kurds. About 30 million people with a fairly large diaspora remaining outside the enclave will live on this territory.

      When creating Kurdistan of this order, it will most likely not be recognized. Therefore, he will receive additional opportunities for maneuver and the creation of provocations and the like. Like South Ossetia and Abkhazia, Transnistria ... But it will not be a country that cannot be seen through a magnifying glass. This will be a territory approximately equal to today's Syria, consisting of three former states with 30 million people, with unlimited supply of weapons and its own oil resource.

      As for Turkey, a pro-Western regime will be established there. Maybe the Republicans will return, or the same pro-Kurdish People’s Democratic Party. Thus, Turkey will be neutralized as a pillar of the Islamic world, as it was neutralized after the destruction of the caliphate.

      voyaka uh ..The Americans and the Turks agreed on joint patrols of the contact zone of the Turks and Kurds in Syria.

      The Turks bent the USA! And it is not the first time that the Americans have "dumped" the Kurds. Tough in Iraq. But the Kurds stubbornly continue to climb into the American jaws like a rabbit
      into the jaws of a boa constrictor. Turks still bargain with the United States for their presence in NATO. hi

    Earlier it was reported that Turkey and the United States are negotiating to create a "security zone" in northern Syria, where Syrian refugees can return.

    I can imagine what kind of "refugees" will settle there. And who the US will train there.
