BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) recently blocked a U.S. military convoy from passing their posts at the Qamishli Airport in northern Al-Hasakah.

In a video that was captured on Thursday, the Syrian Army can be seen forcing the U.S. convoy to turn around, despite the possibility of a confrontation between the two forces.

Since the Syrian Army took over the Al-Qamishli District, they have deployed their forces to several areas that were previously under the control of the U.S. Armed Forces.

While the U.S. military continues to carry out patrols in the Al-Hasakah Governorate, the Syrian Army has become more aggressive in their approach when dealing with American troops in the region.

First of many similar occurrences to come, with an increasing level of belligerence on the part of the SAA against invading and occupying US forces. After all, it’s their land, their jurisdiction, their infrastructure, their right. Besides, the US of A overtly, explicitly admits its thievish goals in the wider context, and in doing so self-denounces as the culprit in a state theft undertaking, admitted verbatim from the mouth of the POTUS himself. We do live in a crazy world lol xD

Think what would happen if the US military were instructed to try this sh_t on Chinese or Russian territory.

ahah indeed, well I guess that’s why it never happens and they never do. Heck Let them first even attempt to walk the talk against Iran, they missed some golden opportunities to go it all a couple months back and still backed down. I guess the world’s 2nd and 3rd military superpowers can wait for uncle Sam a little longer down the road.

Trump wanted the US military out but the Deep State in the USA convinced him otherwise. What the US President doesn’t want for the forthcoming election year is unnecessary US deaths on foreign soil. Hence, no confrontation in this case.

Just like poor Bibi…he doesn’t want to bomb Syria, but the Knesset makes him. Sounds just as good.

Immediately after Trump announced he was pulling US troops from Syria, the US Congress voted almost unanimously to keep them in Syria. Only 60 members of the House of Representatives voted against the resolution to challenge Trump’s pull out.
