What is the 4D Chess here?
“Syria has accused the US of carrying out a “brutal massacre” with a bombing attack in Deir al-Zour province.
The overnight air strikes killed an estimated 100 pro-government fighters near the Euphrates river, according to the US.
The Syrian foreign ministry said it had written to the United Nations, demanding international condemnation.
The US claimed a right to self-defence, saying it was responding to an attack on allied Kurdish and Arab fighters.
It happened in the Middle Euphrates Valley, which serves as an informal demarcation line in eastern Syria. The government controls the western side and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) the east.
The two sides have clashed over the past year while trying to drive Islamic State (IS) militants from their last major stronghold in the country.
Syria described the latest strikes as “a war crime and a crime against humanity”, and said the US was directly supporting terrorism. …”
I’ve lost count of the number of times I have been told that Trump ONLY blew up a Syrian airfield and killed 15 people. We’ve been told it was nothing to get blackpilled about and insignificant in the larger scheme of an ‘America First’ foreign policy. Now, we have announced that we are indefinitely occupying Syria after the defeat of ISIS and have killed over 100 Syrian troops in their own country.
There ISN’T an ‘America First’ foreign policy. This became obvious when Montenegro was absorbed into NATO and the US sold Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine. No, we have the same neocons playing the same games of RISK in the Middle East that we had in previous administrations.
