Closer to Syrian oil: US Army unit relocated from Iraq to northeastern Syria

17

It became known that in the last days of Donald Trump's tenure as Supreme Commander of the US Army, an order was given to transfer a US military unit from Iraq to neighboring Syria.


In particular, it is reported that about two hundred American soldiers and officers left military bases on Iraqi territory a few days ago and crossed the border of the Syrian Arab Republic in that section of it, which is controlled by the Kurdish administration.

While some sources report a partly land, partly air airlift of the US military, others say that the airlift was carried out exclusively by means of aviation... The places to which the American soldiers were taken have also been named.

The reports say that US military personnel were taken to oil and gas fields in the Syrian provinces of Haseke and Deir ez-Zor by helicopter. Part of the contingent settles near the El-Omar oil field, and part - near the gas field in the east of Deir ez-Zor. This deposit is called "Koniko".

Meanwhile, reports are coming from Syria about intensive flights of military aircraft in the area of ​​the city of Al-Shaddadi in the north-east of the country. It is assumed that it could be the American aviation, which covered the transfer of its troops from Iraq to Syria - closer to Syrian oil.

Thus, the American troops, which have not been fighting terrorism in Syria for a long time (if they ever did it there at all), settled in the oil and gas territories, where they almost completely control the production and sale of hydrocarbons. The lion's share of these sales goes to the United States. And this is a blatant robbery of the resources of an independent state. Will this issue ever be raised within the UN Security Council?

    There is no state in Syria. There are territories controlled by other countries.

      We've been mined! It turns out that the United States has oil, Turkey has fertile lands, we have a base?

    The United States did not hide its interests in the Middle East.

    ... settled in the oil and gas territories, where they almost completely control the production and sale of hydrocarbons.

    The philippics of this phrase is clear.
    It is not clear where the oil and gas produced from Syria goes to.
    Their mined ones need to be somehow processed, transported, these are thousands of tons of raw materials, to sell to someone, to help out money, because "The lion's share of these sales goes to the USA." Where are they being taken and what? To Iraq? To Turkey?
    I looked at the map. "I thought for a long time ..." (c) request

    I have already asked these questions more than once at VO. There are no answers. Only minus. lol

      Perhaps the principle of a dog in the manger (to stifle Damascus and indirectly load those interested in the SAR by investing a penny in lending to Damascus, despite the fact that Damascus is in fact bankrupt).

    Even if this question is raised, there will be no sense. America understands only the language of force and circumstance; Syria simply does not have such opportunities.

    The Americans always do this ... they protect someone else's oil from its owners, and if it doesn't work out, then they save their asses (but not their souls, ... that's according to Zadornov).

    The warriors either decided to finally snatch a piece, or stake out a place if they are going to make a decision on the introduction of additional troops into Syria.

    War is war under the guise of fighting terrorism, and the plunder of other people's resources is more important. The United States is a criminal state parasitizing others.

    Another confirmation of the bearded anecdote, which has not been an anecdote for a long time: the United States discovered a state over its oil fields.
