BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 A.M.) – A large U.S. military convoy entered northeastern Syria this past weekend despite President Donald Trump’s declaration victory against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh).

According to a report from the Al-Hasakah Governorate, a U.S. military convoy consisting of more than 150 trucks entered Syria via the Simalka Crossing at the Iraqi border.

The U.S. military convoy reportedly contained a large amount of weapons that were to be delivered to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

Last week, the Syrian Democratic Forces were able to take full control of the Baghouz Camp and its corresponding mountaintop after a long battle against the Islamic State.

The Syrian Democratic Forces are still clearing the remnants of the Islamic State in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate as the terrorist group is believed to have many sleeper cells in the Euphrates River Valley.

Despite their fight against the Islamic State, the Syrian Democratic Forces are still considered to be a terrorist group by the Turkish government.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly vowed to launch a military operation to expel the Syrian Democratic Forces from the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley.

These threats have left both Ankara and Washington at odds as the latter is the primary supporter of the Syrian Democratic Forces.

Who knows what the Yanks are doing. Do they know themselves, Does a finger on one hand know what the next door finger is doing . Are they re supplying the SDF before they pull out. Are they building up with no intention of pulling out and it was all a mis direction. Were they going to invade Venezuela and needed to shore up their overseas bases but now that Venezuela is on the backburner for the moment because not everything is going to plan , are they going back to Syria to carry on their intended plan ..

1.) Trump is 180 IQ, he knows what he’s doing.
2.) Invading Venezuela was never on the table

3.) Yanks won’t go until :
a.) IRGC+Hezb are gone
b.) Erdogan renounces to invade

US 800+ overseas bases starts to be reduced and not just a little. Just consider their cost and their much too high numbers, the reasons are obvious.

As he already tweeted he considered to let Japan and SoKo nuclearise while EU has (more than publicly said) nukes through France…

And if you take EU as a cumulated army, which it is inside of NATO, EU is even more powerful than China. JP and SK are no pussïes too…

200 US bases in Europe, 100 in SK, 100 in JP… IMHO, 90% can go. moreover, these are the most costly one. Just by it, Pentagon can spare $200-250B/year

My 2 cents some areas will end transferred to the Russians, EU and Chinese, and deliberately. BTW Merkel just spoke about EU aircraft carriers…

Yanks will deliberately let areas under other powers responsibility. In fact, the pressure on Venezuela is an invitation for Putin to settle here 😉

When Trump said MAGA, he was really serious and he got the point : you can’t be a republic and an empire at once.

And the dynamic of all empires has always been the same… So it’s in the best interest of USA to reduce overseas bases…

Trump (Drumpf) in a talmudic Jew sun worshiper, not his own boss, a prostitute to Israeli/Rothschild/satanism, just like you.

=> There was no US plan on Syria. All this mess is due to a Qatar+Turkey job and Qatar’s pay to play on some crooked US politicians (Killary/Kerry/Obongo). Trump is simply cleansing the mess they did.

And the mess Chenney/Rumsfeld/Dubya did…
Now, he’s trying a Kim Jong Un on Iran, but KJU is rational. could work if Rouhani was the boss…

At the present day, now things are normalising with NoKo and Bandar has been removed, the REAL problems are obvious : Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, Qatar.

The plan was to use the Israeli run communist pkk Kurds to divide the country like Iraq not only to steal oil for Israel but to secure a pipeline from the balkins to Haifa and thus secure control over oil all while cutting Europefrom easy and cheap Russian resources

Cutting Germanyofffrom Russia is an age old rothschild gambit including bringing in communist death machine

US is showing it sides with SDF and help prepare them against Assadist terrorism, murdering thousands, all documented, in his prisons, and against a Kurdophoob turkish attack. Assad must go. Even Russia is eilling to puke him out.
