BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:30 P.M.) – The U.S. military is blocking the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) from entering the border city of Kobani (var. ‘Ayn Al-‘Arab), a new video from northern Syria showed on Monday afternoon.

In the video that was shared on social media, the U.S. military can be seen posted up along the roads leading to Kobani; this forced the Syrian Arab Army to halt their movements in the area.

According to some reports from northern Syria, the U.S. military warned the Syrian Army to halt their movements until their troops were fully withdrawn from Kobani.

It is still not clear why the U.S. military is still blocking the Syrian Army; however, Turkey has been eyeing this city for quite some time and the longer the U.S. takes to evacuate their forces, the better it is for Ankara.

Pity there weren’t a couple of Russian planes overhead suggesting they move out of the way or be moved. They must hate being told to give it back too the SAA. A bit hard to stomach I imagine.

The Yanks are only moving to protect their control of the oil fields opposite Deir ez Zoir and make sure Assad doesn’t get them back. Their stated objective decades ago was too control the worlds oil so they can control the world by controlling who does or doesn’t have access too it.
