U.S. Bombs Pro-Assad Forces, Again

American warplanes again targeted Shia militia forces allied to the Syrian government on Tuesday, the second strike on pro-Assad fighters in less than a month.

U.S. officials allege the militia posed a threat to Americans and the rebels they train at a base near the southern Syrian-Iraqi border crossing in al-Tanf, however based on what is known about the militia’s operations, the threat may have been non-existent.

A Syrian military source said the strike caused deaths and material damage, and that it showed the coalition was “in support of terrorism,” likely referring to the fact that the U.S. strikes have stifled Syrian regime plans for an eventual offensive on remaining ISIS-held territory in the country.

A similar strike was carried out on a militia tank convoy in the same area on May 18, killing some 8 militia soldiers and destroying several vehicles. The convoy, like the fighters who were attacked Tuesday, are attempting to link up with other militia fighters in Iraq to secure an important surface supply route along the Damascus-Baghdad highway, an 850 km stretch of road connecting the two capital cities.

The Syrian government hopes to use the road to ship in supplies, as well as a way to more easily maneuver soldiers around the country as it retakes territory from ISIS and other rebel factions.

The purpose of the American presence near al-Tanf is ostensibly to train rebels to fight ISIS, however given the recent strikes it appears the goal is to contain Assad’s militia allies, preventing them from making significant gains in the southeastern part of Syria.

Many of the Shi’ite militias fighting in Iraq and Syria are supported by Iran; the U.S. fears Iran will have a direct route into the heart of Syria if the militias secure the Damascus-Baghdad highway, and possibly into Southern Lebanon, where they could back Hezbollah and threaten Israel.

Syrian soldiers told Syrian state media on Saturday that they would take and reopen the highway.

“Within a few days, you will find us at the Iraqi border, and we will achieve a great and historic victory in the history of this crisis – cleansing the entire Badia, liberating the Tanf road […] and restoring the vital artery between Iraq and Syria,” one soldier said. The Badia is the name of a region in Southeastern Syria.

Western-backed rebels also resumed a rocket barrage on Shia militia outposts along the highway on Tuesday.

Prior American strikes on the Syrian regime include April’s retaliatory Tomahawk strike for a never-proven regime chemical weapons attack, as well as a November 2016 strike on a regime position that killed over 80 Syrian soldiers.

    So when did we loose control of our government?

    • We didn’t, it was done by the abdication of We the People like Thomas Jefferson knew they would, when he wrote: “The spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot may become persecutor, and better men be his victims. It can never be too often repeated that the time for fixing every essential right, on a legal basis, is while our rulers are honest, ourselves united. From the conclusion of this war we shall be going down hill. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of this war, will be heavier and heavier, till our rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion.”

    “U.S. strikes have stifled Syrian regime plans for an eventual offensive on remaining ISIS-held territory in the country.”
    And there is the answer to the question… why hit pro Assad forces again?
    …….To protect the US/NATO`s real boys on the ground..ISIS.

  • Oingo Boingo

    The USA is attacking the forces of the legitimate Syrian ruler Assad; and helping and training the rebels…which means ISIS.
    “What’s wrong with this picture ?” says everybody but the Zionist scum that actually rule this (((Khazarian Mafia))) afflicted nation.
    Syria, Iran and Russia fight the beheading monsters of ISIS every day.
    This apparently doesn’t matter to our (((Ruling Merchants))) because they’re eager to see a Rothschild/Warburg owned Central Bank established in Syria, and later in Iran…if the filthy swine get their way…just like they got in Libya.
