U.S. General Tells Syrian Military to Back off in Their Own Country

The hubris of our governments knows no bounds. That was made clear on Sunday, when the new US commander of American forces in Iraq and Syria, spoke out against the Assad regime and Russia.

Following an incident last week in which Syrian aircraft attacked an area near where US special forces were helping Kurdish forces, Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend told CNN that “we’ve informed the Russians where we’re at … (they) tell us they’ve informed the Syrians, and I’d just say that we will defend ourselves if we feel threatened.” As a result of that attack, the US troops in the area had to be moved, and US aircraft patrols were bolstered.

So our government puts boots on the ground in Syria without permission, and those soldiers give aid to Kurdish forces who are opposed to the Assad regime. These Kurds, who have been fighting Syrian forces every day for nearly a week, get attacked by Syrian aircraft. And then the commander of US forces in Syria has the gall to tell Assad’s military to back off.

Back off to where exactly? They’re already within their own borders, defending themselves from rebels that our military is helping. General Townsend is basically telling the Syrian military “Don’t hurt the soldiers who have invaded your country, and threaten to topple your government, or else!”

  • Mister Happy

    When Russia starts bombing US troops that have invaded Syria, so, zero support here for an illegal invasion. The US soldiers who crossed the Syria border committed treason (provoking ww3) and a war crime.

    Note to Obama regime: Go home. Nobody likes you, and you were not invited.

    The Washington degenerates are officially insane.

  • Err Amerika

    And everyone rushes to the post office on April 15th, to bankroll this killing and aggression.

    Do we all go to church and “pray” for peace the following Sunday?

    What a joke.

  • Stu Pendisdick

    Who could have imagined that the day would come when *RUSSIA* would be defending the rights of a legitimate sovereign nation while the *US* was trying to invade it?

    With each passing day, Russia looks more “American” than America does…

    smfh

    • Err Amerika

      That’s right.

      US has invaded the legitimate sovereign nations of Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, and Syria, while pimping out many others by paying their traitorous political leaders off with suitcases full of cash.

      Russia tries to defend itself from being surrounded by offensive nuclear weapons being installed across her border; for this, Putin is labeled as the new Hitler, and “aggressor.”

      What sovereign nation(s) has Russia invaded in the last 60 years?

      Don’t ask that question to the corporate controlled, neocon, Western mainstream media; it will either not answer, or play the “conspiracy theory,” card, blaming the questioner as it’s refuge to denial.

      The Sheeple are insouciant, and don’t have the time to be distracted from Pokeman, marriage and babies, sports, religion, etc……

        Um, the Ukraine and Georgia comes to mind and these weren’t that long ago…

  • libsarescum

    The Kurds are stupid if they trust the U.S.

  • TexasRedNeck

    Just think what these military geniuses will order the troops to do to us on our own soil, hopefully our troops will tell them to stick.

  • tomnchrist

    I am with the General. The Syrian, Russian Turkey Coalition is the enemy of US and freedom. The Kurds are fighting a civil war for their independence in their own Country, Much like America did with England in the Revolutionary War, when both France and Spain assisted the US Patriots. The Bible says it is a sjn not to take action when you know it is the right thing to do (17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. James 4:17).
    Also the Kurds have been faitfhul allies of the US in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

  • frankw

    I can’t help but notice that the US/NATO are doing the same thing in the ME that Hitler was blamed for in Europe.

  • Kurt

    uhn… I’m not taking sides here… as a Swiss I try to be neutral. but as far I know history, the Kurds are not invading Syria, and not invading Turkey… they are fighting for an independent State, wich like the Israeli Ppl. got theirs, Palestinians and Kurds also do have an Historical Right to have an Own independent Country… Just to be Fair.

    • Crazy One

      Um, actually the Palestinians are Jordanians…

      • Kurt

        Uhm… this changes exactly WHAT regarding the territory?

        • Crazy One

          Ummmm… Kurt, you said that the Palestinians have a historical right to have their own independent country…

          They already do, but they let outsiders come in and set up their own kingdom and then they threw the Palestinians out…

          And now the Palestinians want to take the Jewish homeland away from them.

          Just to be fair, the Jews also have the (your term) historical right to have their own homeland and they are presently living in their land now.

          I say, let the Palestinians suck it up and go take back their country from the present day Jordanian squatters…

          • Kurt

            is this false?

          • Crazy One

            Yes and I thought you were a neutral Swiss person?

            Try going back thousands of years… Historically…

          • Kurt

            yup… being neutral disqualifies me for asking questions? Next one

          • Crazy One

            I don’t believe you are neutral or Swiss…

          • Kurt

            it seems this is YOUR problem. At least I’m not hiding behind an teenage avatar. And if you read back what I wrote, you will find out I never said that I was neutral. 🙂 not so quick, boy!

          • Crazy One

            I’m 61 years old and you don’t know me… You suffer from the mental condition known as Liberalism…

            You DID take sides here and yet fail to recognize your own actions contradict your quoted description of yourself…

            My guess is that you threw that false description of yourself out there to promote this lie of you being Swiss and always trying to be ‘neutral’…

            Smells like ‘Borderline Personality Disorder’… Meh

          • Kurt

            boooring…
            go find someone else… Im done with you kid,
            Your handle does not fit you at all… what about paranoya one?

          • Crazy One

            ??? You have a mental problem… Goodbye…
