They were on the way to secure the border crossing at Tanaf to open up the Damascus Baghdad highway. They were not going after American servicemen.

Exactly, this convey were on a mission, I don't think Assad have any military base in that area.

Yes, looks like they were looking for trouble.

So you had their orders? Are you with the Syrian Army? Then you have no idea what they were doing any more than I do.

Huh. That escalated rather quickly... welcome on board btw!
You could be my second account if I could afford another, keep up the good sarcasm and try that without tags. Like this:

We better call in the claqueurs. Right about... now!

Oh wait. We're already here...

But why they didn't stop when asked to stop and after the warning shots?

They could not be suicidal.

This is Syrian territory. The US has no business there. Attacking a sovereign country's military within their borders without been attacked is an act of war.

Why should they? That is not American territory. Plus, these men are highly religious and not afraid of death. PMU is just a Shia version of IS.

Guess they should have listened.

Don't mess with our special forces or you will face the consequences

I hate any loss of life but our troops have to come first! Sorry you don't feel that way.



How dare the Syrians and Iraqis move about their countries freely, such audacity! Our special forces can do no harm and can go where ever they want when ever they want because we're Murika!

/Sarcasm

You are a classic Jingo by the very definition. How's that American Exceptionalism going for you? Must feel nice to be so sedated.


I celebrated mine by having my flag up, while grilling, while having a beer, and throwing a football with my kids.

It was....exceptional.

I understand what you are saying, I agree to a point, but do we know for a fact that it was a red flag?

Or that US targeted them because they could?

I am open for the truth.

There is not going to be any new war, what kind of hogwash is this? The war itself is ongoing, and involves both countries already as well as 27 of 28 NATO member states under Combined joint task force inherent resolve, The Russians, everybodies militias in the region, The gulf Arab countries Turkey, Iran etc...
This is exactly what a front in a world war looks like, but nobody wants to call it what it is.
Its what happens when too many different factions operate in a small space.

It will not really escalate to much of anything new though. The Syrians will simply try to control that main highway and prevent the FSA from moving any further.

SAA and PMU have never attacked American servicemen in Syria and Iraq. After today, watch out.

The US is too brash like Turkey which shot down a Russian plane after a warning. Not all warning can be received. The best way would be to fly alongside a plane and let the pilot see you and escort it out. The best way is to block the road and let the convoy seen you there. I'm sure SAA and PMU were not going after American servicemen. Why strike after a warning which might not have been received by the convoy?

Two tanks destroyed, six killed, three injured, airplane came from #Jordan, convoy had 62 tanks, 500 people in the convoy in totall.


That was a lot of people traveling in that area, it seems to me that it was not going to visit family, they were ready for something.



"@AllyOfTruth Not 62 tanks. 5 T-62 Tanks."

"Correction: out of 50 people in the convoy. Planes fired warning shots before and made a "show of force"; but were ignored."

A little further down on the Twitter feed.

I bet they never seen the warning just like the Russian Su-24 which never seen the warning from the Turkish F-16. If you seen a convoy coming. You block it, not strike it. If you see a plane in your airspace, you fly next to it and escort it out, not shoot it down. How dumb can you get?

The continuity of never ending war....and once Syria is done with, or maybe a bit before, Iran is likely to be picked on next.
Hopefully not, but.....

The only problem with Iran is that not only can they not be destabilized the way Syria has, I seriously doubt they will hesitate to destroy with whatever might they can muster a single foreign unit that dares cross their border armed. Be it militia or NATO member state units.

Syria has to continually bite its tongue, because it is too fragile as it sits to take on the largest military bloc on Earth.
The only reason NATO is not operating under an official mandate in Syria with 27 of 28 member states participating in some way is because that would then reveal they are no longer a defensive alliance, but one of offensive domination.

It is obvious to anybody with half a brain. Former servicemen are either too proud or just trolling to admit otherwise, and so the "oh no mandate" argument pops up. Sure does not seem like a mandate is needed for 27 of their 28 members to participate in foreign war under the banner of a different coalition ...

what do I know though, I am just a crazy conspiracy theorist putting a puzzle together, but for some reason all the pieces seem to fit perfectly. Go figure.
