US special forces wear Kurdish badges
The U.S. coalition against Syria was initiated as an indirect attack on Iran. It is the policy stated by former CIA director James Woolsey; Diminish allies of Iran before war with Iran, presumably to reduce the blowback from US/Israeli strikes on Iran. One way the U.S. sees as an achievable way of diminishing Syria’s ability to defend themselves, & their allies, is to cut Syria off from their natural resources, via using ISIS to ethnically cleanse areas, then having Kurdish forces move into the area & annex off the territories.
Kurdish regional objectives include stealing the land of US-NATO ally Turkey, which just makes US-led collective defense look like a sick joke. Over the past decade NATO has significantly reduced global security & stability, now they are building up a force to attack their own ally. A force the US has listed as a terrorist organization. For these reasons I do not see Kurds as a stabilizing force in Syria, to me they represent the expansion of war, & instability in the region.
A U.S. aircraft shot down an armed Iranian drone advancing on coalition forces in southern Syria on Tuesday, Fox News confirmed.
The armed pro-regime Shaheed-129 UAV was shot down by a U.S. F-15E Strike Eagle about 12:30 a.m. after it displayed hostile intent and advanced on Coalition forces. This is the second the U.S. shot down an Iranian drone in less than a month.
The coalition forces were manning an established combat outpost to the northeast of At Tanf where they are training and advising partner ground forces in the fight against ISIS. This is the same location where another pro-regime UAV dropped munitions near Coalition forces before it was shot down on June 8.
The F-15E intercepted the armed UAV after it was observed advancing on the coalition position. The armed UAV was shot down when it continued to advance on the coalition’s position without diverting its course. foxnews.com
