    Another day, another war. Why are we in Syria? This Empire-Building Agenda will crash & burn at some point. All Empires fall.


    Turkey has launched an attack on Syrian government-affiliated forces as they approach Kurdish areas of northern Syria. The Turks are occupying increasing parts of Syrian territory. Earlier this month, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson bragged that the US controls 30 percent of Syria. Israel also has designs on occupying even more Syrian territory.

    I'm a little curious as to what our intentions are towards the Iraqi and Syrian Kurds, who pretty much made up our proxy army in the ISIS fight.
    And the Syrian Kurds are/were indigenous along the Turkey border. Most recently it appears the Shiaa were supporting them against Turkey's intervention.

    Syrian civil war: regime forces come to Kurds' aid against Turkey in Afrin

    As to the OP's question, we created ISIS when we invaded Iraq and dismantled the sunni society that eventually provided the personnel for ISIS, and American elected a president in Obama who wanted no part of a continued occupation. And the result was not just the war in Syria, but the destabilization of western European democracies.

    So what do we do now?

    In 1996 US warmongers, neocrazies and Likudnicks promised to weaken and destabilize Syria to defend Israhell. For some reason The Trump administration claims that the reason the US is stealing the Euphrates Valley is to help the Kurds.. Well , that is not acceptable to Turkey. The US invasion of Syria is not acceptable to Russia. The only thing that will come of this foreign policy blunder is WW3.

    The Syrians have lived in relative peace with the Kurds for many years. But with US/Saudi funding and arming, the Kurds got involved with their 'Regime Change' agenda. Now they're being squeezed by both the Syrian Government and Turkey.

    And they've been completely wiped out in Northern Iraq. The Shiite Government there has seized territories that belonged to the Kurds for centuries. Even under Saddam Hussein, they were allowed autonomy in the North. But the Shiites have now ended that. They've put themselves right in the middle of all the US/Saudi meddling in the region. It won't likely end well for them.

    Yeah, the Kurds are in big trouble. They cast their lot with US/Saudi 'Regime Change' in Syria. Before that, they lived in relative peace with Syrians. But now, the Syrian Government has no choice but to wage war against them. Also, Syrians are seeing the Turks seizing more & more areas of Northern Syria. They have to confront the Turks.

    The Kurds are gonna get squeezed out. It's already happened to them in Northern Iraq. The Shiites have wiped them out. They should have stayed more neutral in the US/Saudi-created wars. They're paying a hefty price for supporting them.
