As U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson presented the Trump administration’s plns for the "open-ended military presence" in Syria, the government of President Bashar Al-Assad warned that the continuing presence of U.S. soldiers in the country is an act of “aggression” which would not be tolerated. Unfortunately for the Americans Vladimir Putin agrees.
The Daily Stirrer news blog has pointed out many times, while the presence of Russian and Iranian troops in Syria at the invitation of the legitimate government (and the Assad regime is the legitimate government no matter how much the western powers dislike it,) is perfectly legal, U.S. troops crossed into the country illegally and can legitimastely be regarded as invaders. This is according to the United Nations charter.
The Syrians protested against the U.S. military’s continued activities within its borders as a further increase in persoinnel, presently believed tonumber aound 2,000 with a statement from the Foreign Ministry which stated that the "American military presence on Syrian land is illegitimate and represents a blatant breach of international law and an aggression against national sovereignty."
The statement emerged after Tillerson on Wednesday, at a forum hosted by the right-wing Hoover Institute at Stanford University, argued that removing U.S. forces from inside Syria would only serve to "restore Assad’s grip on the country and provide Iran the opportunity to further strengthen its position in Syria."
This is where the illegitimacy of the U.S. presence becomes clear, Barack Obama, whose administration provided ISIS with money, weapons and training in their civil war, always made it clear his priority was not to fight terrorism but to overthrow Assad and put the extremists in power. Does Washington not realise it cannot interfere in the internal affairs of sovereign states.
Meanwhile, tensions rose along Syria’s border with Turkey again this week after the Turkish government threatened to launch a cross-border incursion to fight the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF —backed by the U.S. and dominated by the Kurdish YPG.
The threat came from Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in response to the Trump administration's announcing a plan to arm and train a 30,000-member military force inside the Kurdish-dominated border region in north-western Syria.
"A country we call an ally is forming a terrorist army on our borders," Erdogan said in a speech on Monday, referring to the U.S. plan. "What can that terror army target but Turkey? Our mission is to strangle it before it’s even born." Turkey is of course a full member of NATO and entitled to expect support from the U.S.A. against threats to its national security
In his remarks on Wednesday, Tillerson did his best to quell Turkish fears.
"That entire situation has been misportrayed, misdescribed, some people misspoke," Tillerson said. "We are not creating a border security force at all." If it looks like a border security force, smells like a border security force and marches like a border security force, you can bet it's a border security force.
Turkish officials were not impressed and repeated their threat to invade while Syria vowed to use the same determination to free its territory of any "illegitimate foreign presence" as it has to fight members of the Islamic State and other jihadists groups.
Regarding the threat of a Turkish invasion, Syria responded by saying it was prepared to “shoot down” Turkish warplanes and defend its territory from any attack.

Who is funding ISIS, how has the terror group managed to assemble such a large, well equipped and (apparently) well fed fighting force and been able to wage a two year war against the Assad regime in Syria, the forces of the autonomous Kurds and the army of the Iraqi government, such as it is? Who is facilitating their illegal oil trade that is keeping Islamic State afloat.
Syria's President Assad Makes A Fool Of US Reporter Michael Isikoff In Interview
The ISIS uprising in Syria was one of the spontaneous revolutions kicked off by a speech Barack Obama made in which he pledged America would support extremist groups that tried to effect regime change.

Is World War Three Really Kicking Off This Time?
The airstrikes by a US led coalition that killed many Syrian soldiers fighting for the legitimate government of Bashar al Assad against the terrorist forces of ISIS has raised the level of hostile rhetoric between the USA / NATO coalition and the Russia / China / Iran alliance. The likelihood of war seemed to have receded through the summer, after it seemed possible early this year, that one stray shell or bullet could spread the war beyond the middle east.

More Than ISIS, Iraq’s Sunni Insurgency
The story emerging in Iraq is of another American foreign policy fuck up, a total misreading of the situation by the world's most parochial global power. By December 2013, Sunni leaders had become tired of the jihadi group the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) actions in their areas and publicly supported the Iraq government’s military campaign against the group’s bases. Unfortunately the ISIS rebels were armed with US military technology and Obama was calling for the resignation of the government in Baghdad, prompting Russia and Iran to support them ...
