Ethnic Cleansing will be horrendous- I notice there have been some ‘hit pieces’ on the Kurds in preparation for this murderous move- There will be blood and lots of it, but, it will all be a mistake and blow back- BULLSHIT! I’m tired of these lies- (I’ll post one hit piece I found tomorrow) And, no I don't feel sorry for the PKK/YPG kurds, they do what they do with zeal! Fully aware of the heinousness of their acts. They are unworthy of my pity. They are terrorists- Terrorizing for their own gain.
First the Airstrikes: Second Time this Month!
U.S.-led aircraft struck a column of pro-Syrian government forces.
The strike marks a second time in less than a month that U.S. aircraft have targeted troops aligned with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Both times, the Pentagon said, were in self-defense..
It is unclear how many troops were killed or wounded in the bombing run and what legal rationale might cover the U.S.-led forces continued strikes on Syrian government forces operating within their borders.
“We are not increasing our role in the Syrian civil war, but we will defend our troops,” Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters after the May strike. “And that is a coalition element made up of more than just U.S. troops, and so we will defend ourselves [if] people take aggressive steps against us.”
The Tanf outpost, located near the Syrian, Iraq and Jordanian border, has become a flashpoint in the six-year old Syrian conflict in recent weeks. Iranian-backed Shiite militias loyal to Assad, along with Syrian government forces, are making a concerted push to recapture territory from the Islamic State in the area in a likely attempt to secure the border and the desert highway that runs into Iraq.And the US bombs them! Of course the US is supporting ISIS! As usual.
Why are they blocking the legitimate Syrian government, it's military and allies from securing it's territory and border? Obviously the US wants to assist it's proxy allies ISIS and prevent Syria from securing it's territory and borders..

"Over the weekend, U.S. aircraft dropped leaflets warning pro-regime militants to stay out of the (bogus)deconfliction zone around the base, which is located at the Tanf border crossing between Syria and Iraq. The garrison is used by U.S. and British special forces to train two Syrian opposition groups for the fight against ISIS"
Secondly: US backed Kurds Move on Raqqa City
U.S.-backed Syrian force said Tuesday it has begun an offensive to capture the northern city of Raqqa, the de facto capital of the Islamic State group, after months of clearing operations.And allowing ISIS to leave Raqqa, trapping civilians inside
YPG/PKK allowing ISIS to leave
He said U.S.-led coalition forces will continue to support the SDF in Raqqa, providing equipment, training, Intelligence and logistics as well as precision firepower.More lying
“We all saw the heinous attack in Manchester, England,” said Townsend, referring to a bombing that killed 22 people last month and was claimed by IS. “ISIS threatens all of our nations, not just Iraq and Syria, but in our own homelands as well. This cannot stand.
“The International Coalition and our partner forces are steadily dismantling the physical caliphate of ISIS,” said (lied)Townsend. “Once ISIS is defeated in both Mosul and Raqqa, there will still be a lot of hard fighting ahead, but this coalition is strong and committed to the complete annihilation of ISIS in both Iraq and Syria.” (LIAR)
Townsend added that once Raqqa is retaken, the SDF have stated it will be turned over to a representative body of local civilians who will provide security and governance.

YPG/PKK to Move on Raqqa- Tribulation for Civilians to Follow
The U.S.-SDF partnership has complicated relations with Turkey, which views the group’s Kurdish component as an extension of a terror group operating inside its own borders.
Turkey has remained hostile to the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, known by their Kurdish acronym the YPG, which form the backbone of the SDF. The YPG are close to the Kurdish PKK insurgent group in Turkey, which is designated as a terror organization by NATO and the U.S.
The humanitarian NGO International Rescue Committee said it is deeply concerned for the safety of civilians in the city, adding that the number of people escaping Raqqa has dropped. That may indicate that IS “intends to use the 200,000 people still trapped in the city as human shields,” the group reported.
