Foreign media: Several US servicemen wounded in missile attacks on a base in eastern Syria

From Syria, there are reports of shelling of an American military base located in the east of the country. In the reports of the Middle East information services it is said that unknown persons used missiles from mobile installations against the US base.


According to foreign media reports, the US base, which was subjected to rocket attacks, is located in the province of Deir ez-Zor - in the region of hydrocarbon fields, which the US military controls together with the Kurdish armed groups. Oil and gas produced from such fields are usually smuggled to neighboring Iraq, where they are sold in the interests of the United States. Some part of the illegal income "goes" to the Kurdish elite, and anti-government forces in the SAR are also arming on it.

In the reports, it is said that several American soldiers were injured. At the moment, the deaths of Americans as a result of this shelling have not been reported.

It is noteworthy that just a couple of hours ago, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said that "the US military still has a lot of work in Syria and Iraq." He made such a statement on the anniversary of Washington's proclamation of victory over the terrorists of the ISIS group, banned in the Russian Federation.

At the moment, the American side has not commented on reports of rocket attacks on a military base in the SAR.

      The question is, which way? Maybe I see an option with training and supplying the natives, through PMCs and gray organizations, as well as providing them with intelligence. The aborigines must fight tightly against the United States. Significant US casualties in manpower can sober them up ... Although it can be so provoked on Desert Storm 2 ...

        In Iraq, there are up to 120 thousand bayonets of the Shiite people's militia forces controlled by the IRGC of Iran, which are quite capable of ruining the mood of mattresses on the routes of movement of supply convoys and harassing shelling of their places of deployment. It seems that they are not heavily involved in countering mattresses just because Iran was betting on positive changes in US policy with the change of President Trump to Biden. Judging by the fact that the positive is not observed, "hints" that the mattresses there will not be happy will be strengthened.

        Although you can provoke this into Desert Storm 2 ...

        This is controversial. For the first storm, the mattresses created a coalition and assembled a strike fist of 300 thousand bayonets with the preparation of logistics and related infrastructure (supplies, hospitals, etc.), but then they acted against the Iraqi Armed Forces, which today do not seem to be involved in the anti-American military actions, and at the same time are not eager to fight for American interests with the forces of the people's militia. Building a coalition against these units is like shooting sparrows with a cannon. As a matter of fact, given that all the latest military adventures of mattresses are unprofitable and do not give a "golden exhaust", those who want to take part in their wars have significantly diminished. The only thing that mattresses can achieve is to get bogged down in Iraq + Syria for a couple of decades, like in Afghanistan, without the prospect of winning.

            Apparently, this is what is going on. Now they should start to burn in Afghanistan if, according to the agreement with the Taliban, they do not withdraw their lousy army by May 1. The mattresses seem to be talking about a postponement, in view of the difficulties with logistics through the territory of Pakistan, but the Taliban strongly insist on the terms stipulated in the agreement. If it burns simultaneously in Afghanistan and Iraq, then Bidon will need to demonstrate some solutions, with which, judging by his latest blunders, more problems are expected. The fall on the plane's ramp can be flowers compared to what it will learn. Let's see, not long left hi

              Yes, the Taliban spoiled the mattresses well and do not want to negotiate anymore. Apparently, it is no longer possible to intimidate Iran with a war, and the Shiites will more actively waggle them, and then Uncle Sam will ride in a Middle Eastern frying pan.

      This should not happen, because American soldiers should not be in Syria or other parts of the world.

        Pendocs sleep and see how to merge beautifully from Afghanistan

        During the years of the US presence in Afghanistan, a colonial administration of the aborigines was quite created there. It includes power and other necessary blocks, mechanisms for their self-regeneration have been established, reliable methods of managing this administration from the metropolis have been created and worked out, a system of checks and balances has been built (government, Taliban *, ISIS *, etc.). A tremendous job has been done. Already today, the US presence in Afghanistan has been reduced to a minimum. Now the United States needs this system to start working "autonomously" at all, ie. without the direct presence "on the ground" of the gentlemen from the metropolis. As soon as this task is solved, the States will physically withdraw from Afghanistan.
        Naturally, "our partners" would like to bring this "colonial case" to its logical conclusion as soon as possible. You shouldn't see a Taliban victory here *.

        * - prohibited in the Russian Federation.

      Talking by force of arms is a double-edged decision, the question always arises to what extent each of the parties is ready to raise the stakes.
      At different stages, Israel, Turkey, and the United States were noted against the SAR with varying degrees of intensity.
      As usual, the pale helmets will make a video with "himataka", will be published in London. And the excuse is ready, they will begin to hammer the CAP from three sides, even the Britons, the French, etc. pull up.

      Will Russia have to demonstrate "a conversation by force of arms" on Telyaviv, Istanbul and NATO ships in the Mediterranean?
