Thoughts on the option to retain a few hundred US troops in Deir ez Zour

Mission is still counter-#ISIS but the policy concerns include preventing #Iran, #Assad, & #Russia from seizing the oil fields. Our presence has (so far) had that secondary effect

So what can ~200 guys do?
~200 guys at best gives us a foothold & preserves:

-intel --> high value strikes on #ISIS & #AlQaeda
-some tribal support. At minimum ability to compete 4 it
-some kinetic ability to defend vs #Assad,#Iran,#Russia expansion
-option 2 surge forces again

NOT a long term solution
A small presence of ~200 guys essentially means a single US base in Deir ez Zour. It does not enable us to secure all of the oil fields. The #SDF would be responsible for securing that infrastructure, with - in theory - air and artillery support from our limited residual force

#Turkey #Syria Op: Tomorrow is “The” Day-#Erdogan will meet #Russia’s #Putin In #Sochi. After the meeting with #Pence in #Turkey last week, this coming meeting will put the “final-Final” touch on #Syria Op. Stay Tuned for my Analyses & Predictions.- - -…
Just remember, #Russia & #USA are coordinating and cooperating on #Syria. #Turkey’s hope: To Get From #Russia What it couldn’t get from #USA. I’m afraid, it won’t happen. Actually, Russia’s offer on Turkey #SafeZone will be far less, far more limited than Now-Canned US Offer.
Iran warns #Turkey & says establishing military post in #Syria will be unacceptable not only to Iran, but “Other” countries as well. By “Other Countries” #Iran meant #Russia.

1. Ongoing thread covering #IS’s response to and comms around recent developments in northern #Syria. Focus will be on camps, prisons and tactics.
2. 9 Oct: Something weird going on in #Raqqa, which was, per #SDF reports last night, subject to a “large-scale assault” by #IS. Meanwhile, total radio silence from #IS.
3. This is strange. When #IS has mounted flash urban assaults in years gone by, it has intensively reported on them, often as the attacks were ongoing. Think #Palmyra, Dec 16; Kirkuk, Oct 16, #Rutbah, May 16, #Kobane, Jun 15.

Here’s a serious warning from Col. Başıbüyük @obasibuyuk90: Expect Major #ISIS Attacks in Europe #EU following #Turkey #Syria Op & Ceasefire. I consider the Colonel a solid source with implacable record & expertise. Think: Who wants to score geopolitical points with #ISIS Attacks
Let me give you a hint here (not that majority of my followers need any hints😉): Which globalist Factions have been so very alarmed & unhappy with #USA & #Russia cooperating on #MiddleEast issues? And remember: #MSM has been on this faction’s side. Okay?!
Here’s a bonus hint: That faction has been the loudest in opposing #Trump #Syria deal, and been warning (fear-mongering) on the peace efforts by #Russia-#Trump-#Assad by playing “This will revive #ISIS” card. Just saying!

Seriously? Now they say it- Now that they’re seeking rescue from #Syria’s #AssadFor 7 Yrs they were fighting these same “Arabs”- joining foreign invaders. Now they are Arabs?! #Turkey #Syria “We're Arabs just as much as Kurds': Syrian Kurds call for unity”…
Is this why neither #Iran or #Iraq or #Turkey or #Syria can never trust #Kurds? If every opportunity they get they join foreign invaders-operatives & then, every time they are used-discarded they run back to the same governments they betrayed & fought against: Who’d trust them?!
Time to recognize this reality; this fact. Milking the West for Sympathy, backed by agenda #MSM, utilizing emotional blackmail, ran it’s course. Playing the #MinorityCard Days: Over. #Kurds #Syria #Turkey

@SPIEGELONLINE 1. Wie kann es sein das Abu Bakr #alBaghdadi noch am Leben ist?
Saddam Hussein im #Irak hat man aus seinem Loch geholt.
#BinLaden wurde in seiner pakistanischen Villa erschossen.
Es gibt Agenten, Informer, Drohnen, aber der läuft immer noch rum: Warum? Gewollt? #ISIS
@SPIEGELONLINE 2. Bei Osama #BinLaden fragten alle Medien für JAHRE "Wo ist Osama Bin Laden?"

Warum wird nie gefragt "Wo ist #AlBaghdadi?"

Braucht man ihn noch für einen dreckigen Krieg gegen #Assad?
Versucht hat man es ja schon: "Moderate Rebels"(viele #AlNusra, einige gingen zum #IS).
@SPIEGELONLINE 3. Der #Spiegel steht doch (oder nur stand?) für "investigativen #Journalismus": Dann forscht doch mal nach!
1. Wer hat alles #ISIS unterstützt (mit Geld & Waffen)?
2. Warum durfte #NATO-Partner #Türkei vom #ISIS-Öl profitieren?
3. Warum wohnten IS-Offiziere in türkischen Hotels?

#Serekaniye resiste ancora, aggiornamenti da Kobane e Tal Abyad, ultimo bilancio 78 morti e centinaia di feriti (paziale)

#Thread #Rojava #SDF
Dopo 8 giorni di attacco via area/terra, l’esercito turco ed i suoi alleati jhiadisti, continuano a non riuscire a penetrare nella città di confine di Serekaniye.

Nella tarda serata di ieri l’esercito turco ha lanciato un violento attacco accerchiando la città da 3 assi, con largo utilizzo di truppe di terra, artiglieria pesante e molti raid aerei, anche sul centro città.

Fino a oggi:

- nessun colpo è stato sparato dall'esercito di #Erdogan contro l'esercito di #Assad e viceversa.
- 250.000 persone sono in fuga
- il confederalismo democratico è stato falcidiato
- l'Isis festeggia


#Rojava, #Turchia, #Erdogan

1. i dittatori guadagnano terreno
2. i terroristi (quelli veri) guadagnano terreno
3. la popolazione ne subisce le conseguenze
4. la democrazia perde

E' il "triangolo vizioso" di @iyad_elbaghdadi

Ora potete:

1. continuare a giocare a soldatini senza curarvi di altro, indossando una maglietta - non importa quale;
2. rendervi conto di quanto non contate un cazzo e ragionare di conseguenza

Never has the self-suicide of #Syria's mainstream opposition been more clear than in recent days.

#Afrin was really bad, but this NE incursion (its manner; its consequences etc.) is truly beyond the pale -- in truth, what we've witnessed is a #Turkish campaign through-&-through.
It's clear now that the Dec 2016 loss of #Aleppo - in large part due to #Turkey selling it out to #Russia - was *the* turning point.

Opposition factions lost any sense of autonomy of action & over the years that followed, everyone but #JFS-#HTS & #AlQaeda existed *for* #Ankara.
An #American presence in NE #Syria kept at least some of this #Turkish ambition under wraps (just ), but #Trump's naive (or malicious?) "green light" decision after speaking with #Erdogan let everything loose.

Only now are we seeing the consequences -- and they're not yet clear.

[1] That is what the Leader of the Free World has done with his ill-considered decision: hospital bombing #Assad & hospital bombing #Putin are supposed to protect #Kurdish hospitals in #Syria from hospital bombing #Erdogan.
[2] Minorities have been suffering under the Assad regime for decades. The US President has now driven them into the arms of their executioners to escape ethnic cleansing. The #Ezidis should therefore consider giving up their homeland in #Syria altogether, as they did in #Turkey
[3] With only some 800,000 members worldwide, the #Ezidis have no choice but to leave their homeland in order to survive and escape the endless wars, in which they have no chance of survival.

1. Now that #Assad has restored his regime's jurisdiction over the Al-Hawl camp I will not be surprised if they conduct Iraq style trials and execute all the male fighters. Maybe all the women too. Who knows? And Al-Baghdadi in Badia desert should be worried. @RTErdogan @POTUS
2. Assad has just recovered all the light sweet crude oil and gas fields on the east bank of the Euphrates.

Fun Fact: two days ago the US conducted an air strike on Iranian/Regime forces in Deir EzZor. @barbarastarrcnn I'm betting you didn't know. @ckubeNBC @LindseyGrahamSC
3. I really don't blame the #PYD for ending the relationship with the US. @SecPompeo has allowed them to be called terrorists and never once stood up for them. If Russia and Assad are smart they will show some grace and provide the PYD the limited autonomy they wanted

Some important facts when reporting on #TurkishArmy operations in #Syria:
•The #YPG has ethnically cleansed several cities of their Arab inhabitants as documented by @amnesty & others
•ISIS has carried out many terroris attacks inside #Turkey including 2016 Airport, 2017 NYE
•As with every war, each side pushes its own propaganda. The #PYD/#YPG have previously used images that were proven to be either doctored or from other countries
#Turkey says main aim is to create safe zone &go after “terrorists” but #OperationPeaceSpring has other motives too
•These include economic benefits from construction projects + others in post-conflict #Syria
•The issue of refugees has become a toxic electioneering one domestically in #Turkey. There’s a belief that by reducing their number Gov popularity will increase.

Reports that #Russia & #Damascus will take #Manbij

Almost certainly confirmed & is easy enough, Russian-trained & equipped #SAA units have been stations just outside Manbij for almost a year now
#1st_Division also sent some reinforcements to #Qamishlo airport yesterday. Not originally planning for today's events but they're there now.
It's important to recognize that #Assad does not have the resources to govern the territory of #Rojava on his own. The #SAA is stretched thin enough dealing with an insurgency in #Daraa & keeping pressure on #Idlib & there are near daily #ISIS attacks in central #Syria...

They are almost certainly leaving the country entirely. US forces depend on a ground supply line via Faysh Khabur in the far northeast, so we cannot withdraw southward into Deir ez Zour Province and sustain that presence
A sustainable presence in Deir ez Zour would require a new logistics train from Iraq, probably by air. By land would require traversing lots of terrain that we can't secure from #Iran's proxies.
I think at best a withdrawal south of the M4 highway would be a bid for time

That “1000” is, roughly, the entire US presence in #Syria.

What does “northern #Syria” mean? Are they being drawn down to Deir ez Zour? Are we seeing an Arab-focused last chance strategy in slow formation?
The U.S. withdrawal from #Syria is underway, as directed overnight by #Trump & supported by @DeptofDefense.

As I wrote a few days ago, opening the doors to #Turkey put the writing on the wall.

- "Making America Great Again” has never sounded so vapid."…
@DeptofDefense HUGE developments in north #Syria, as the #SDF agrees a de facto surrender deal w. the #Assad regime, in return for a #Russia-backed #SAA move to block #Turkey's advances.

Looks like #Manbij, #Kobani, #Qamishli & possibly #Raqqa are all included in this agreement.

#SAA moving.

I am so glad you finally came out and said it: The #Syria Mess is #Obama’s fault as “one man” who implemented it. And “One Woman’s” fault who was “his” architect in “his” #StateDepartment: @HillaryClinton. Bravo 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
After all, in November 2011, I blew the whistle on “Both of You” And was the first to Expose your #ISIS Camp In #Turkey & Your Preparations for #Syria Operations right after #Libya @HillaryClinton #Obama. Here it is on dated & on Record:…
Nothing like a good public confession for the soul. A few more and you may start seeing some soul cleansing.

1/#SDF chief Gen. Mazloum: (1)Sent a letter to #Trump asking for mediation with #Turkey; (2) Requested a No Fly Zone to stop #Turkish airstrikes over #Syrian airspace. The U.S. not stopping Turkish airstrikes over the SDF Zone in N/E #Syria is the major source of tension now.
2/#SDF chief Gen Mazloum: "When our soldiers see how their mothers and fathers are being attacked and killed, and #Turkey is using our airspace to do it, that makes them angry with the United States." #Syria
3/#SDF chief Gen Mazloum: Still time for mediation with #Turkey to end the fighting in N/E #Syria. The SDF demands that #Turkish airstrikes stop (after US closes airspace), Turkish artillery strikes also. Also an end to cross-border raids with TSK and #Syrian rebel proxies.

#SDF positions in northeastern #Syria "very weak" against #Turkey-backed forces, per #SDF Gen. Mazloum Kobani Abdi, speaking thru translator on a teleconference

He describes the situation as "frustrating...We trusted the security mechanism sponsored by the United States”
“We are now preparing ourselves for a long military operation that might take more than a year,” per #SDF Gen Abdi on #Turkey incursion in NE #Syria
“They want to attack all the Kurdish towns…they want to destroy all of our area” says #SDF Gen Abdi of #Turkey's military operation in NE #Syria, saying Turkey will turn the area into "another #Idlib"
