Islamic State Hits U.S.-Led Base in Southern Syria (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by Theresa @, Thursday, April 13, 2017, 02:23

Did you know that we have hundreds if not thousands of U.S. forces fighting in Syria already?

Attack Saturday in al-Tanf involved vehicle bomb, fighters with suicide vests

With the US now engaged in military conflict with, and targeting Syrian army forces, what the Trump administration has (un)wittingly done is provide support to Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and al-Nusra and other terrorist forces, all of which have been engaging with the Assad regime in a fight in which the Syrian president has gradually seen the tide of war turn in his favor. At least until last Friday's US cruise missile attack that is.

Which is why it should probably come as no surprise that, emboldened by US actions, moments ago the WSJ reported that Islamic State militants attacked a US-led coalition base (at least we now have official confirmation that there are US military bases in Syria) in southern Syria on Saturday, "triggering a fierce fight that required coalition airstrikes to repel, U.S. military officials said Sunday."
