US deploys reinforcements to Syria after Russia clashes

It seems the Syrian flash point is still an active reality with reports of US reinforcements being sent to the country following incidents involving Russian and US forces around a security area where Coalition forces are operating.

US Navy Captain Bill Urban said the move would "ensure the safety and security of Coalition forces".
He added that, alongside the fighting vehicles, which had been based in Kuwait, the US would also deploy a "Sentinel radar" and increase "the frequency of US fighter patrols over US forces".

"The United States does not seek conflict with any other nation in Syria, but will defend Coalition forces if necessary," Mr Urban, a spokesman for US Central Command, said in a statement on Friday.
Mr Urban did not mention Russia by name, but a separate statement from a US official, first reported by NBC News, was more pointed.
"These actions and reinforcements are a clear signal to Russia to adhere to mutual de-confliction processes and for Russia and other parties to avoid unprofessional, unsafe and provocative actions in north-east Syria," the unnamed US official said.

NBC News cited officials as saying the troops and vehicles were sent to deter Russian forces from entering a security area, where US coalition and Kurdish forces were operating.
Over the years, there have been frequent interactions between US and Russian forces in Syria. But in recent weeks, incidents in north-east Syria have become increasingly belligerent.


The US said Russian forces had entered a "security zone" that they had agreed to stay out of. Russia, meanwhile, said it had given the US military prior warning that it would be patrolling there.
The US has about 500 troops in the area - far fewer than previously - to help secure it against any further threat from Islamic State (IS) jihadists.

Sounds more like the draw down of troops in Syria was a politically motivated mistake.

It was actually long overdue. They need to pull the rest of them out of there.

You forgot about this though.


TEL AVIV — The last American president to have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize was honored less for something tangible he had achieved, and more for who he was and what he represented. President Barack Obama, the Nobel committee declared in 2009, has “created a new climate in international politics.”
...
Whatever one might think about Trump’s other actions and overall personality, the president deserves to be seriously considered for a Nobel Peace Prize. And if not him, it should go to his adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner. They deserve it for achieving a breakthrough that eluded all of Trump’s predecessors, something no president before him has done: He successfully pushed for two back-to-back peace treaties between Israel and a pair of Arab nations — the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain — signed at the White House on Tuesday.

No , I was motivated by concern over the situation , making a statement of fact does not equal politically motivated nor qualify the thread as Mud Pity , it's just a statement backed up by facts on the ground.

So the US intelligence agencies didn’t actually create Isis to try and topple the Assad “regime” then? Or the chemical attack at Douma wasn’t a false flag? Good to know..

Isis was created by the disaster that was the Iraq war so in a way they were created by the US.

Correct , it wasn't a false flag.

In the sense that the White Helmets told a false narrative about Douma, it very much WAS a false flag. White Helmets and other mercenaries paid by US and Israel staged the event so that Assad would be blamed.

In the west, it worked. In other places, not so much.

It only sounds like that if you have no clue what you just read. This is a minor development, nothing more. Keep reaching.

Putting this in WW3 forum is nothing but wishful thinking on your part. Sad.

I noticed the installation of radar sites is mentioned, but I remember that back in August 2018 the us army put out a video explaining the radar sites they were installing at that time.


Rojava Resistance
‏ @RojavaCudi

The U.S Army has started to install advanced radar systems at their air bases from #Rojava to establish a no-fly zone for the areas controlled by the #YPJ/#YPG[/url]


Are these new systems, the same systems installed before, or were the old ones removed and reinstalled??

Have you got any other information on that??

How is there time for all this in the midst of a 'pandemic?' Sounds like -something- is a whole load of bull# to me.

The only mistake here imo is sending the reinforcements.

Should’ve pulled everyone out.

Hell far as i’m concerned shouldn’t have intervened at all. In fact shouldn’t have provoked this war in Syria in the first place. Or Libya for that matter.

No more regime change. No more nationbuilding. No more wars (except purely defensive).

Trump should keep his campaign promise.
