The US Quietly Starts Bombing Syria While Mainstream Media is Focused on Russians

The US government is secretly starting a new war and bombing Syrian government forces while the US mainstream media is focused on the Russia fiasco. The Syrian government convoy, showing the Syrian flag, was on it’s way to the garrison at al-Tanf near the Jordanian and Iraqi borders early Friday. The US forces, one must note, do not have clearance or permission to operate in Syria to fight ISIS, which they state as being their reason for being in Syria. The Syrian convoy was said to be traveling too close to a facility where they were training local militia to fight the Islamic state. US officials contacted Russian officials to inform them the Syrian convoy was too close. The Russians contacted the Syrian government but did not get any response after a few attempts. The US then fired a warning shot after the Syrian army looked like they were “digging for defensive positions” according to US officials. Then the US proceeded to fire air strikes and took out the convoy.  Officials would not comment on the causalities.

The US, as noted earlier, never received permission to operate in Syria. Syrian forces have never attacked US forces and stated they are strictly fighting the ISIS invasion. Despite having a shared enemy in ISIS, the US has never seemed too interested in working with Syria and Russia to take out ISIS. It should also be noted that the US strategy of training local militia is reminiscent to when the US trained the Afghanistan rebels which later turned into Al Qaeda. If you want to know the real reasons why the US is in Syria, please watch our Syria Pipelines video. We tell you what the mainstream media isn’t talking about.
