U.S. forces choppered into Syria 24 hours after new commander-in-chief takes power

I wonder how long ago this was planned. President Trump tried to withdraw U.S. troops from the Middle East during the four years of his presidency. He was at odds with the brass at the Pentagon and career neocons in government. I’m sure they couldn’t wait to send in the troops.

BPR:

A large convoy of U.S. military personnel headed into Syria on Thursday along with hundreds of troops some 24 hours after President Joe Biden took office and took on his commander-in-chief role, foreign media reported.

Citing Syrian state news agency SANA, i24 News reported that a convoy of about 40 trucks and armored vehicles “entered northeastern Syria” on Thursday supported by helicopters.

The convoy entered the country from Iraq via the al-Waleed crossing “to bring arms and logistical equipment to bases in Hasakeh and Deir Ezzor provinces,” i23 News stated.

And while “other local media” noted that such resupply convoys are not uncommon, SANA’s report added that an additional 200 U.S. troops were choppered into the Hasakeh province as well.

The report claimed that the additional troops will deploy to protect nearby oilfields on land that buttresses Kurdish-controlled territory in eastern Syria that is also said to be rich in energy resources…

Late last year, former President Donald Trump ordered U.S. forces in the area withdrawn to neighboring Iraq…

For the duration of his four-year term, Trump attempted to withdraw American troops from decades-long conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan and, more recently, Syria.

But he reportedly got constant push-back from his defense and national security advisers and Cabinet members, leading to the sacking or resignation of several.

    Treasonous DOD brass lied to Our Pres about the number of troops left in Syria. The treasonous DOD brass told Our Pres troop levels were decreasing when in actuality none had been withdrawn.
