There is a reluctance of the MSM to report anything that is not sensational mon the wars, the many wars, we are fighting.
This is where I feel I must do their job for them.
We know that Americans are fighting, yet again, in Iraq and Syria, to mention only few conflicts…..
The Pentagon today reiterated that the US special forces on the ground in Syria are in a purely non-combat role, despite a new spate of photographs showing the troops embedded with Kurdish YPG forces in combat operations.
The photos showed the US Green Berets wearing the insignia of the Kurdish YPG on their uniform, likely to be a topic of contention with US ally Turkey, who considers the YPG to be a terrorist organization. Pentagon officials say it is “fairly common” for US troops to wear other factions’ insignia.
Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said that US special forces are aiming to “blend in with the community to enhance their own protection” by wearing the Kurdish insignia, while Col. Steve Warren said it was a “sign of partnership” with the Kurds.
Very similar to another one of our “wars”…..
Is it possible that training for rebels may not be the winning strategy that so many claim?
All the other Pentagon-trained Syrian rebel factions, from their costly and largely ineffective foray into training, have either defected or been destroyed. The last little group, which holds the Tanaf border crossing between Iraq and Syria, is now on the brink.
The rebels pushed their way in and surprised a small number of ISIS forces at the border, which is the southern-most crossing between Iraq and Syria, but now with ISIS conducting counter-offensives in the area, it seems only a matter of time before they face another attack.
The rebels complain they aren’t getting much support from the US, which they described as a “dereliction of duty,” saying that they are debating whether or not to flee rather than simply wait for the inevitable rout from the much-larger ISIS force.
Maybe a workable “Plan B” would be advised…..
There is some news….not earth shaking news…..but basically a confirmation of the use of US troops…..
As Iraqi Kurdistan’s Peshmerga launches a new offensive just east of the major ISIS city of Mosul, witnesses on the ground reported US troops loading into armored vehicles and heading eastward, toward the frontlines.The Pentagon refused to confirm where the troops were headed.
The Pentagon would only describe it as an “advise and assist operation to help Kurdish Peshmerga forces.” It is noteworthy that the troops warned reporters present not to take pictures, after similar pictures emerged of US troops embedded with Syrian Kurdish forces, sparking a row with Turkey.
I have always thought that the term “Advise and Assist” was a stupid thing to try and sell to the public….but apparently it works well on the mental midgets….
Once again just my small attempt to help my readers see what is happening since the MSM seems to prefer not to report some things that may be contrary to their paradigm…..
Stay tuned…..I am sure there is more to come….
