BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 A.M.) – France and Great Britain are allegedly sending more troops to Syria in order to fill the void left by the U.S. troop reduction, The Guardian reported.

Citing U.S. officials, the publication reported that France and Great Britain will increase their forces in Syria by 10 to 15 percent.

This alleged move by France and Great Britain comes just days after several countries, including Germany and the Netherlands, rejected U.S. President Donald Trump’s request to send ground forces to Syria.

Meanwhile, Foreign Policy reported that the increase of French and British troops in Syria is a major victory for the Trump administration as they were struggling to find allied countries to accept their request for ground troops.

Both France and Great Britain already have ground troops inside of Syria, despite objections from the government in Damascus.

The two European nations also participated in the April 2018 attack against the Syrian government, which was carried out in response to the alleged chemical weapons attack on the town of Douma.

France and UK are hardly independent countries, but are mere vassals and boot licking poodles of US warmongers and Zionist manipulators. The are shameless lapdogs who blindly jump to their masters commands. The new US handpicked UK PM Boris Johnson has openly acknowledged that he is a “committed Zionist”. The only way Syria will be liberated is to inflict losses on these invaders like the Yemenis are doing with great success.

I agree. Russian appeasement was well-meant but all it has achieved is that “rebels” get breathing times to recover. There must be decisive action.

Russian appeasement was well-meant to… achieve the S-400 delivery to Turkey thus planting the last nail in Erdogan’s coffin!

There are no “vassals” in democracies. Democracies collaborate -or not- according to their interests, will and capabilities. France is well known to have many time told buzz-off to USA when she disagreed, Germany and Italy said “no”, it’s as simple as this. This is no surprise for Germany since German laws ban the deployment of boots out of the border without a parliament vote and it’s near impossible to obtain a “Yes”. BTW, the German pacifism is even an issue at building an efficient EU defence policy. US have no say in who becomes UK’s PM, Brits are absolutely able… Read more »

If it wasn’t for the Western deployment in NE Syria, the Euphrates’ west bank would have long felt to the Turks who’d have performed a Kurdish genocide. A few hundreds Western militaries acting technically as human shields for the SYRIAN Kurds helping deterring a Turkish invasion of all northern Syria are not invaders, they’re peacekeepers! SAA has already a hard time in Idlib/Aleppo/Afrin. As soon the integrity of the territory will be regained, Assad will talk with the Kurds. If he’s clever, Syria will be reunified, if he’s too much a thickhead, Rojava is already in a position where they… Read more »

Well, although Yemeni army, with the help of the Arab-coalition, has already retaken near 2 thirds of the land seized in 2014-2015 by Iranian puppets and killed a lot of Houthi terrorist, legitimate Yemeni government still has a long way to go. In fact, Hadi is in the same position as Assad.

If only I was a kïke, I’d had done the alyah for long… And made IDF 4x more lethal. My little ideas to improve our army were appreciated a lot by our chiefs of staff. The problem was the red light from the politicians who were afraid of ending with kill ratios like 200:1, maybe 300:1… Imagine any Tavor AR becoming as accurate at 1km as a .300winch-mag snipper and delivering as much lead as a M60 machinegun, SMGs the weight of Micro-Uzi more devastating than AK-74U, any F-16 capable to demolish 72 of the heaviest tanks added to 228… Read more »

Hadi government was in place before Houthis did their coup with Iranian support. Ali Abdullah Saleh had resigned in 2012, then was reinstalled as illegal prez after the Houthi coup in Saana. Scandalised by Houthi despicable acts, Saleh wanted to negotiate peace and have Yemen returned to a normal life, Houthis didn’t accepted and murdered him. It’s not a question of pro-Saudi prez or not : Hadi is the legitimate prez, Yemen being a democracy, Houthis could have competed in elections. They did a coup, they can be Iranian puppets, it doesn’t make them legitimate. Hadi did exactly the same… Read more »

+++ “Both France and Great Britain already have ground troops inside of Syria, despite objections from the government in Damascus.” >>> OK, let’s move out… Guess who had massed HUGE numbers of troops on the othr side of the border when Trump spoke about pulling out? What do you say? Erdogan? Yes, you are right! The government in Damascus should be happy : 1.) The association of YPG/SDF with the west relieved SAA of about 90% of ISIS pressure if not more. 2.) Since SAA didn’t fulfilled its duty to evacuate Kurds from combat zones and some other factors, etc,… Read more »

Should be interesting too see how the UK,And France.Get around the international law against occupying,And invading a country with no set rules from the UN,Or the UNSC!. Everyone keeps talking about the politics involved,How about we start talking about international law that is being broken,Or the lives that will be lost in an illegal and criminal occupation. Everyone recognizes the politics in play here.The UK seizes oil tankers,Then expects no reaction?.Utter foolishness putting troops into syria all for american policy.Guess no need to elect anyone in the UK,Or France anymore.They just take direction from the united states anyways. And sadly,Countries… Read more »
