U.S. Attacks Syrian Military Near Tanf, Jordanian Border

By Brandon Turbeville

After reports of Syrian military movement towards Deir ez-Zour and al-Tanf were confirmed, it seemed almost inevitable that there would be a clash between Syrian government forces and those of the U.S. and U.K. as well as the terrorists being housed and trained at the Western base in Tanf.

Finally, on May 18, al-Qaeda’s Air Force struck yet again when the United States launched an aerial assault on an SAA military convoy. According to CBS News,

The U.S. sent aircraft to strike Syrian regime vehicles on Thursday that violated a deconfliction zone set up around al-Tanf, an army base where special forces are training Syrian militias, CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports.

The Syrian regime has violated the zone two times in the past few days, Martin reports.

In one incident, 27 regime vehicles drove within 18 miles of al-Tanf, which breached the 34 mile radius of the army convoy. U.S. aircraft attempted to buzz the regime, but when the convoy didn’t turn around, they conducted a strike against some of the vehicles.

In the second incident, an unarmed Syrian SU-22 fighter-bomber entered the deconfliction zone and was intercepted by a pair of F-22 fighter aircraft.

More specifically, according to al-Masdar News, the positions of the SAA were attacked near the Rasi’i Well, after the SAA had advanced 35km into terrorist-held territory near the border with Jordan.

Previous reports have also stated that the Syrian military contingent heading toward al-Tanf is being commanded by Iranian officers and assisted by Hezbollah fighters. However, it is well known by now that Syrian military forces are indeed focused on liberating the east of the country.

We now await the response from the Syrian military and, more importantly, the response of Russia. While Syria is focused on liberating the eastern and southern parts of the country, it cannot continue to allow the United States to occupy and act with impunity within its borders. At some point, the United States has to be dealt with. How it is dealt with, however, will be anyone’s guess.

        I’m sensing sarcasm I say terrible things in jest using the “x is for losers” line it’s a thing i guess, but whatever and since it’s the opinion of plenty of our exceptional ones, you’re on point even if it doesn’t apply to our friend here. Goid comment above btw.

I have some news for you all to see. From Manley P Hall’s “Initiates of the Flame” 1922. As I have found out, the Bolshevik Revolution and the Fascists were run out of the investors and bankers of the United States. Manley Hall often talked about the special destiny of the United States. Then there is the dollar. The shape of the S with a line through it is based a serpent and arrow. Masons are not who or what you think possibly It is of the occult, Kabbala and Talmudic and Torah based . The statue of liberty is not of liberty either. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5cc5c74735831dd674cbe5ba50e8b14481490023a2769709ee302f248d9519dc.jpg d arrow. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ae9f93f39bb27d0c61ec828bf3617b6aaeaf97b1a93428abb2445865c4085d33.jpg

    Would be nice to see Syria bring up some S300s and start shooting down any aircraft inside Syria that aren’t Syrian or Russian. Personally, I can’t fathom what it must be like for pilots being ordered to commit acts of war by firing on a lawful government while one’s fellow countrymen arm and train terrorists.

  8. This act of aggression by the U.S., should not be condoned by World Leaders. The Syrian convoy is clearly within Syrian Territory. The U.S. military base is set in Syrian Territory. The U.S. have no jurisdiction in Syria. They were never invited there… Remember Napoleon invaded Russia… Hitler invaded Poland… Now Trump invades Syria… See it as it truly is. A War Crime.

    • Yes, it is an international war crime under both international law and American law, but the US government has never paid any attention to either. It deals from a position of impunity and will until its dollar is removed as the reserve currency and its subject nations decide en masse to stop being under the heel of the oppressor!

    • Napoleon was not French, Hitler was not German and Stalin was not Russian.
      Meanwhile Trump lives in an ivory tower, trying to figure out how to make American Great Again. His first moves have been to cut $54 billion from the social safety net and then hand it the military, and sell $billions of arms to Saudi Arabia. The art of the deal in action.

      • Trump will not make America Great Again by going on a Crusade. America will gain it’s strength to become great again when Full Time Jobs are there for the American People. America was once a Great Industrial Builder, but now it has become a Great Military Industrial Destroyer. Full time work will bring full time taxes. Something that should be spent in building at home. The infrastructure of America has been neglected for too long and Work is there to Rebuild. Social Security is a Burden to Taxpayers and belongs only to the Citizens.

    Trump is turning out to be just as bad if not worse than Hillary would have been on his foreign policy. Let us see how cozy he gets with the Saudis. Saudia Arabia and Israel are the nations we should have invaded after 9/11 not Afghanistan and Iraq and Turkey should be kicked out of NATO.
