Qietly, while Americans have been focused on the ongoing drama over repealing the Affordable Care Act and the new revelations about the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, President Trump has been busy dramatically expanding the American troop presence inside Syria. And virtually no one in Washington has noticed.
Unless a secret plan exists that Trump is keeping from U.S. senators and his own secretary of state, there is absolutely no plan for who controls post-ISIS Raqqa, or post-Assad Syria.

Syria along with Iraq are two of the most important Arab countries. They are rich in history. Damascus and Baghdad are the most important cities in the Arab world. Control of parts of Syria and Iraq is vial to national interests in the Middle East. That's why both Russia and the US fight for control in Syria and Iraq.
