BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported that the American forces transferred a large amount of oil from eastern Syria to Iraq over the weekend.

The agency quoted local sources as saying that “a convoy of 30 tankers and a tanker for the American occupation loaded with stolen oil from the oil wells it occupies in Syria’s Al-Jazeera left this evening to Iraqi lands through the illegal Al-Walid crossing in the Al-Yarubiyah region in the eastern countryside of Al-Hasakah.”

No further details were released by the state-owned news agency, nor was there any comment released by the U.S.-led International Coalition.

The Syrian authorities have accused the United States of working to “smuggle Syrian oil and sell it abroad to deprive the Syrians of it, in a flagrant violation of international law.”

In late 2019, U.S. President Donald Trump approved a plan to withdraw his country’s forces previously deployed in Syria, but he later decided, as a result of pressure by members of his administration, to keep about 1,000 soldiers to ensure American control over the seized oil fields in the northeastern part of the country.

Protecting oil fields in the middle east … while BLM and anteefah burn and destroy cities in the USA.

Yes you can!”

Tell me again why Trump appointed Wray and Barr to their Donothing posts?

Honestly, the ONLY (freaking) reason Tump is getting my vote is because Biden/Hillary/Obama/Holder, et al are 1,000 x times worse.

Tump was a NY zionist run democrat his whole life if you don’t understand the good cop bad cop political con job going on in the US you will never be free of stupidity and fear of ‘what if the other crook gets power they would destroy the US…’ The bankruptcy king was put in to make the destruction and looting of the US palatable to ‘patriots’ all while giving his zionist palls 6 trillion to buy up the ashes for penny’s.

Our country is in hundreds of trillions in debt and no longer has open accounting. Patriotards sold our country out to China with promises to me that the communist would be good goy and put money making over national security. Everything China had after the wall street bolshevik “softening up period” of slaughter was given by the west including all our super computer nuke weapons factory’s including the jigs to make our fighters. Communist China now makes some 60 odd percent of out Israeli compromised weapons systems components if not more as that was in the bush age of continuing… Read more »

Keeping it out of the hands of Iran and China! Also if the fields were not protected, they would burn.
