Trump Invades Syria, Commits Illegal War Crimes
Trump, the 27% President, has sent regular combat troops to Syria, without congressional approval, without U.N. approval, and without the approval of the elected government of Syria. That's something Obama didn't do, although Obama did send special forces as "advisors". Evidently they're sending anywhere from 300-500 combat Marines and Rangers depending on what you read. Various voices from the Pentagon and the Trump administration are signaling the possibility of sending even more troops to Syria and to Afghanistan (remember Afghanistan?)
"The deployment marks a new escalation in the U.S. war in Syria, and puts more conventional U.S. troops in the battle. Several hundred Special Operations troops have advised local forces there for months, but the Pentagon has mostly shied away from using conventional forces in Syria. The new mission comes as the Trump administration weighs a plan to help Syrian rebels take back Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Islamic State. The plan also includes more Special Operations troops and attack helicopters."
This is an escalation of U.S. involvement in the imperialist war in Syria. We got these new cats in the House and they want to get their hands bloodied, show how tough they are, and finish the job Obama couldn't, get rid of Assad and break apart Syria.
"The United States is making a military bid for a very large chunk of sovereign Syrian territory. Something even Obama with his extraordinarily reckless Middle East policy would not dare to do."
This is significant news and further evidence Trump and his warmonger staff are following the U.S. global hegemony script. Combined with the trashing of Russia by Trump's U.N. Ambassador, Nikki "I'm a Warmonger Too" Haley, and his hiring of Fiona "I Fucking Hate Putin" Hill to his national security team, this ratchets up pressure with Russia. Not to mention his new anti-Russia National Security Advisor, General McMaster. Russia is fighting in Syria legally, with the permission of the Syrian government.
"U.S. President Donald Trump's administration is weighing a deployment of up to 1,000 American soldiers to Kuwait to serve as a reserve force in the fight against Islamic State as U.S.-backed fighters accelerate the offensive in Syria and Iraq, U.S. officials told Reuters."
