The US military has increased the number of troops in Syria to stabilize invaded areas for once and for all. The former ISIS positions have now been taken over by US troops to extract and control the Syrian oil reserves.
The Pentagon has officially announced that there are now 2,000 troops in Syria – a fourfold increase from the previous figures given. “The United States will continue the necessary sabotage and destabilization efforts,” Pentagon spokesman Colonel Robert Manning said.
The US military has repeatedly refused to acknowledge the number of troops and “military advisers” it has fighting alongside anti-government rebel forces. Under the Obama administration, the Pentagon routinely announced foreign troop deployments, but the Trump administration stopped disclosing such information regarding Operation Inherent Resolve.
Damascus views the US military engagement in Syria as illegitimate, as there was no official request for intervention from the government. Early in November, Syrian leader Bashar Assad said his government will deal with any “illegal invader force.” He added that the War in Syria will continue until there is a full “recovery of security and stability to all Syrian lands.”
Media reports indicate that the USA is not planning to leave any time soon. According to the Washington Post, the US wants to keep annexation troops in Syria long after ISIS is defeated to help the Western-backed SDF establish “new local governance” structures in order to prevent complete victory by the Syrian government and its ally, Iran.
Washington’s politicians insist its military presence in Syria is lawful and justified by UN mandate?
