US Conquers Syria, Tells Russia To Back Off

The United States and Russia are going against each other across different regions, with Syria being one of the most disputed ones. As the United States makes a move on Syria, it has sent a clear message to Russia: back off. Will the Russians heed, or will it take the U.S. to the brink of war?

US to Take Syria

Many experts agree that there hasn’t been a more tensed time than now, especially with what is going on with Europe, South China Sea, and Syria. In all these regions, there seems to be a common denominator: Russia and U.S. butting heads.

Analysts point out that tensions will not ease up sooner. This sounds especially true after the United States declared on Monday that its military forces will continue occupying Syria regardless of what the Syrian government says. Likewise, the United States also sent out a warning that it will shoot down any Syrian plane that will attempt to fly over the U.S. forces.

“We would continue to advise the Syrian regime to steer clear of those areas,” Global Research quoted Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook.

“We are going to defend our people on the ground, and do what we need to defend them,” Cook told reporters.

This makes it clear that the United States will not allow Syria to expel its forces, including third-party interventions. Since the Syrian government has also invited Russia, this means that U.S. will also be going against Moscow.

“This means that the U.S. not only is at war against the legitimate government of Syria, but that the U.S. government will also be at war against Russia if Russian forces (which the Syrian government did invite into Syria) defends Syrian forces from attacks in Syria by U.S. forces — forces that are illegally there,” claimed Global Research.

Turkey Makes a Move

In the midst of the ongoing tensions, Turkey has also made a move against ISIS by sending its tanks to retake city of Jarablus.

“At 4:00 this morning, operations started in the north of Syria against terror groups which constantly threaten our country, like Daesh [Arabic name for Islamic State] and the PYD [he Democratic Union Party of Syria],” RT quoted Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
