France Takes Steps To Replace U.S. Forces In Northeastern Syria

Click to see full-size image, By the Official Twitter account of the International Coalition for Operation Inherent Resolve.

France will keep its forces in Syria, despite the U.S. decision to pull its troops out of the war torn country, France’s European Affairs Minister Nathalie Loiseau said on December 20.

“For now, of course we are staying in Syria because the fight against Islamic State is essential,” Hurriyet Daily News quoted the French minister as saying on the CNews TV.

Following Loiseau’s announcement, France’s defense minister said that ISIS has not been defeated yet. The statement appears to be a response to U.S. President Donald Trump, who claimed a day earlier that the terrorist group was defeated.

“ISIS has been weakened more than ever, but it has not been wiped from the map nor has its roots. It is necessary that the last pockets of this terrorist organization be definitively defeated militarily,” defense minister, Florence Parly, said on Twitter.

Paris, which was reportedly surprised by the U.S. decision, will try to “ensure the security” of the Syrian Kurds who fought with the US-led coalition against ISIS, according to Agnes Von der Muhll, a spokesman for France’s Foreign Affairs Ministry.

“The United States must take the protection of the populations of northeastern Syria and the stability of this area into consideration in order to avoid any further humanitarian tragedies and any return by the terrorists,” the Washington Examiner quoted the French diplomat as saying.

The France-Press Agency (AFP) said that two senior commanders of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), Riad Darar and Ilham Ahmed, will visit Paris on December 21 and hold talks on the U.S. withdrawal from Syria.

Local observers believe that France is trying to take advantage of the situation and replace U.S. forces in northeastern Syria. A task that Paris will likely fail to achieve on its own due to the complexity of the situation in Syria.

    The move by USA to withdraw it’s troops will allow the Syrians to settle the difference and help to negotiate on peaceful ending to the civil war in partnership with Russia.

    • Nowruz

      It was never a civil war. It was an invasion by the US paid Wahabi/Salafi mercenaries. The US deciding to withdraw is because they supported the SDF which is a culmination of PKK/YPG fighters which Turkey finds as a threat to their national security. So to avoid a direct conflict with Turkey, the US decided to allow Turkey to handle the situation. We can’t also rule out that the US may be focusing their attention elsewhere (Africa, Kosovo, Ukraine, Venezuela, and the South China Sea). The SDF is currently holding high-level talks with Damascus to determine how they will deal with the Turkish invasion. A side note is that Russia and Turkey have reached a compromise on Syria. For me, Turkey’s foreign policy is too unpredictable due to Erdogan’s neo-Ottomanism and support for Muslim Brotherhood, but we should soon see in the future whether Assad partners with SDF or allow Turkey to control NE Syria.

      • jorge

        Assad will not allow no one to control even a m2 in Syria.

  • Snowglobe

    Yes, good move France. Go and continue the fight in Syria. It is not like you have any domestic problems at home to worry about. ;-)

    • Zionism = EVIL

      France is imploding at home, mired in debt, but the little Jew midget Goldman Sachs shill Macron wants to play the role of an “imperial power”. France is a third rate military that licks Americunt arse from Indo-China to Algeria and has not learnt much. If a few dozen froggies are killed in Syria, there will be a revolution in the streets of Paris. The SAA should shoot down a few French Rafales operating from Dubai and Jordan. The US would like the French to get a bloodly nose as midget Macron is getting too uppity.

      • Jens Holm

        France it not implosing at home . They have to refom important parts and some determinat is elected to do. Of course a lot dont like it and some wrong are hur to.

        The change has its limits and possibilities. I dont expect France being reformed the next 2-3 year. Its deep.

        I expect Makron can take well care of some of them only.

        Your crap about french military capasities is low as well as they are in the coalition having many more airplanes and possibilities if and when they agree.

        Those also have very good special mforces for heavy support at the ground.

        • Hasbara Hunter

          Empereur Emmanuelle Macroni du Rothschild XVI can’t do shit…. Cryin’, Moanin’ & Beggin’….he is Nothing but a Faggot….His French Foreign Legion of Salafists can’t read Maps….

          • Jens Holm

            They do. they mainly are leaders and have the troops for Mali, Niger, Upper Volta and like that in the middle of Africa.

            Here is and updated estimate for strenght

          • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

            The French love to subjugate their ex-colonies in Africa with the help of the corrupt local elite.
            Rwanda didn’t work out so well, did it???

          • Zionism = EVIL

            And lose wars, they are basically cowards and bend with the wind, the Vichy Nazi collaborators. They suffered the most humiliating defeat to Viet Minh forces at Dien Bein Phu, despite Americunt air support and weaponry. The battle of Algiers was a classic defeat, despite froggy brutality the FLN kicked their pansy arse. If they stay in Syria, which I doubt, they will come up against a very battle hardened SAA and Hezbollah which will make FLN look like child’s play.

          • Jens Holm

            Its one of many possibilities.

          • Ricky Miller

            No. It’s an overwhelming probability Jens. The French haven’t had a good military day, on their own, since Austerlitz.

          • Pit-Stop SixtyFive

            the great french army ,,, remember 1871 and 1940 against the prussians / germans … pathetic …

          • Tommy Jensen

            Vichy Vichy. But the Frog eaters can brag about De Gaulle.

          • Pit-Stop SixtyFive

            and don’t forget the truly “patriotic” Philippe Pétain ,,, he loved listening to prussian glory on the streets of Paris. after all, germany never declared war on france first, but she wins all the time :-)

          • John Whitehot

            you have the tendency of talking invented languages and say vulgarities every time someone challenges you technically.

            The truth is that France won’t even take the risk of running a Rafale into a flock of birds, and will keep their wheels tightly attached to the concrete of their airbases elsewhere in middle east.

          • Hasbara Hunter

          • Jim Prendergast

            Actual performance on the field and in war-games would put Pakistan at #1, then Iran, Chechnya, Hezbollah,The Houthis, Vietnam and the Gurkhas could still wipe most fighters. I’m talking about fighters not fashion models.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Seriously dude, you need to get a brain and a life :)

        • Ricky Miller

          Baloney. France is too cowardly to strike Syria all on it’s own. The September Israeli strike that caused the Russian loss and the end to Israeli air ops inside Syria included a French cruise missile launched from a warship that took out Latakia’s power by destroying a substation. France, hiding a sucker punch missile hit behind Israeli skirts. Weak. Pathetic.

          • Jens Holm

            France already has been there by Rapheels, Artillery and probatly small special forces.

            So You keep Your low knowledge level well. You ignore its a coalition. In that we dayli see Iraq covering air and artillery support for SDFs.

            Your smokescreen for possibilities is of the usual kind. There is no lack in capasity. Britts has complained to Trump as well. France certainly is not alone.

          • Ricky Miller

            More useless gibberish…even France just said that the U.S. represents the spine of the coalition. How are they to march on without their spine?

          • Jens Holm

            That message goes both ways. France as well as several others understand nothing g and by that appeal USA to change back.

            The rest of the job of the voalition stay the same. Fx no withdraw from Iraq.

            Syria in military seize for USA and friends are limited. All inclusive its only about 6.000 soldiers. Its possible to make a selective and much small backbone for that.

            Jets, missiles, artillery and that easy can be replaced. We all do pay today. Its kind of doesnt matter which nationality.

            I dont say its gonna happen. I say its a possibility and Ypou ignore, whats possible.

            You even forget, that octopussies and others actually has no spine.

          • Ricky Miller

            Sorry, my gibberish spouting opponent, I didn’t realize that octopi had any tentacle in this fight.

          • Jens Holm

            Well to begin with octopussies do defend themselves and kill others.

            You probatly are in the level, where Russian tanks are full of water and swimming tigers.

          • Ricky Miller

            Good thing Russia has 20,000plus tanks in strategic storage then. Plenty enough to get to Denmark and pop open yet more cans of whoop ass.

          • Jens Holm

            Well, thats why we are in Nato. They will be met by our Leopards.

            We probatly can build tanks faster then You can bring those museums…

          • Patriotic_White_American

            Remember when Finland kicked Russia’s ass?

            LOOL

          • Ricky Miller

            Until they didn’t. And begged for armistice. Then, a couple years later came back for more. Helped put St. Petersburg under siege. Got hammered. Begged for armistice. Russia remembers and so do the Finns. That’s why they’re still scared to join NATO, the new Reich. Might get hammered for the final time.

          • PZIVJ

            It was a bit snowy and cold.
            Much more recent is N Vietnam sending US retreating in shame :)

          • Ricky Miller

            And that, in a nutshell is your problem, whitey..You equate tactical success with strategic victory. This night is swirling around your head and all you can latch onto is tactical success. Lake Ladoga was shared between Russia and Finland and is now a Russian lake. Syria has taken another major step on the road to reunification and victory in the past two days and you’re mind is trapped in the tactical. The fleeting. The barest of temporal. It’s why your worldview and your $22Trillion in debt superstate is failing.

          • Patriotic_White_American

            Russian strategic success = utter defeat of Soviet Union to the US

          • Ricky Miller

            Most Russians would argue that the USSR was a perversion of the Russian Empire and deserved to go. The Russia that emerged was purged of it’s multinational Imperial excess and could focus more on Russian core areas and technology improvement. Lo and behold, success. But don’t duck the point. Finnish success in the Winter War was impressive for a time as was their part in the Northern siege of St. Petersburg later. But, whoa in the end they paid a terrible price. Including all the Lake Ladoga shoreline, a major city, several smaller towns, and left begging for a deal and cut off from the Arctic shore. And which country had it’s 1940 leader locked up for seven years post Ww2? It wasn’t Russia. Strategic wins decide the fate of nations while tactical wins allow for bragging rights. See Jutland, battle of.

          • Jim Prendergast

            That was not a battle. That was the emergence of a new world.

          • Jens Holm

            Yes, but it was very limited.In the rest they lost fast.

            Russoians did the most stupid they could and light infantery could defeat many russians.

            So my LOL is very limited.

          • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

            The cowardly US 6000 nation coalition have massive expertise in bombing desert camels in Syria and their “precision weapons” just manage to keep on “democratically” murdering Syrian civilians.
            I wonder how long they will take to clear the Sinjin ISIS pocket on the Syria-Iraq border?
            Perhaps, they should call on the RuAF, the real ISIS hunters???

          • Jens Holm

            Usual maccrap only.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            The Trump administration is planning to withdraw thousands of troops from Afghanistan, US media say.

            Reports,citing unnamed officials, say about 7,000 troops – roughly half the
            remaining US military presence in the country – could go home within
            months.

            The reports come a day after the president announced the country’s military withdrawal from Syria.

          • Ricky Miller

            Maybe all my letters about not voting for him again unless he fufilled his campaign promises got through despite the ineptitude of the U.S. Postal Service. Do you think the letters mattered? Me either.

          • Pit-Stop SixtyFive

            the great french army ,,, remember 1871 and 1940 against the prussians / germans … pathetic would be an understatement …

        • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

          So, how many French soldiers is Micron prepared to sacrifice for his “Assad must go farts”, now covered up by the “fighting ISIS farts”???

          • Jens Holm

            I see it as a possibility and if they did, they are not sacrificers like You letting them be killed as spendables.

            And if so other in the coalition will contribute well and add up. Its keeping not taking. Whats to take in Syria apart from dadeds for christmas.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            The froggy casualty threshold is about 20 dead and they are gone. That is what happened to them in Chad when Husein Habry was running rings around them in the 1980’s. BTW, that was the first Toyota Landcruiser conflict. The Chadian Tuareg are very good fighters, the Saudi scum tried to recruit them for Yemen, but they told them to fcuk off.

          So there is not french police in the streets fighting milions of protesters with gas and violence? And there is no milions of moslim wanting to take over the country?

      • John Whitehot

        “but the little Jew midget Goldman Sachs shill Macron wants to play the role of an “imperial power””

        France started spiraling toward zionism with the non-cryptojew Sarkozy and his intervention in Lybia.

        If France turned back to the rather independent policies of the pre-Sarkozy era, it would be good for all.

        Remember when Chirac-Schroeder and Putin jointly declared their opposition to the invasion of Irak by the US in 2003, and the yanks reacted by renaming “french fries” to “freedom fries”.

        There were people on the web, back then, sporting signatures in their names like “I boycott french products”.

    • MUSLIM state of IDLIB

      You all need to read the Dabiq prophecies. By Allah’s (SAW) will a big conflict will begin between the nations of kuffar.

        • Jens Holm

          USA have changed way of warfare learning lot by that. Tools for that is relative well develloped for that too.

          My first book was “6 days in June”, where I was a boy on the sideline only. I hardly saw most of it propaganda too.

          I dont buy books about wars. Internet, radio and TV has replaced it.

            I dont thing we feel and are canon food.

            We are as very much of the world part of western economics as well as small needing to support as well as being supported to maintain a productive system keeping it as safe as possible.

            Our people hardly march. We also are few and relative high tech. Besides that women are equal, so they die in important jobs too.

            Denmark fx have 12 policedistricts and 5 topleaders are women because hey are the best available.

            We are not like You, but You probatly already has a “war widow” cheep for sales – Only one owner… If the milkers are not first class, we compensate with a goat from Sodoma or Gomorra by own choise.

  • John Whitehot

    France already withdrew from Mambij together with US forces, and will leave shortly after the US from all the other areas.

    • PZIVJ

      This we hope for, France reported to have 1000 troops in Syria compared to 2000 US.
      But right now any Turkish move across the border needs to be stalled if possible.
      Allowing the SDF time to work with Syria and Russia on territory for peace deal.

      • Bigaess Wangmane

        Nobody fears France or the French military for that matter. Once the JewSA forces are cleared out of Syria the French will follow closely behind them.

        • PZIVJ

          I’m just saying place them on the border with turkey as a tripwire, and have them hoist the NATO flag high. This may buy a little time. :)

          • jorge

            Well, the S-300, the military police and the spetsnaz may be will be already in place…

      • Jim Prendergast

        This is the most important thing.

      • John Whitehot

        “Allowing the SDF time to work with Syria and Russia on territory for peace deal”

        I’m not sure about that.
        the SDF has been enthusiastically stealing land and resources from Syria, and killing arab civilians to make their areas less arabic and more kurdish.

        I don’t think that Syria would accept anything less than full reabsorption into the country and complete disarmement from such people.

        Besides, for all we know, there could already be an agreement with Turkey, which would drive zionist serving scum from the area and then give it back to Syria (they have announced to have no interest in staying).

        Driving true or imaginary YPG/PKK terrorists fromm Turkish borders will allow Erdogan to present Turkish people with a victory. They’ll say that they didn’t want to remove Assad, but just neutralize a terrorist threat.

        That way, is gonna be a win for everybody involved, besides the zio-scum, which will result as the losers of it all (saudia included).

        They’ll vow eternal revenge and then go back at their activities, while hopefully the Syrian people will recover from this aggression, under the protection of their country and their allies.

    Trump is getting rid of Mattis over policy disagreements. Bolton and other chicken hawks will follow in the near future.

    • Tudor Miron

      Is he? Do you think so or is there some information on this matter?

            You are welcome.

        • Tudor Miron

          This is huge. Do you think that Trump is strong enough at this point to throw out Bolton and alike and stay in power?

          • Sinbad2

            Bolton is addicted to power, like many small men.
            He will stay as long as he can boss his underlings around.

          • Tudor Miron

            Bolton might be figured out who’s going to win and that’s why him and not Pmpeo was visiting Moscow and talking to Putin :) Nothing personal old friends – pure business.

            That is the theory. But No they seldom did. Every Capitalist State is little more than a management committee for the capitalist elite.

          • Redadmiral

            Think, Trump is posturing, however, if he has all his ducks lined up more neo cons will be launched. If on the other hand he has failed to cross a “t” or missed a dot on an “i”. We might well see Donald as a dead duck in the new year. If he has managed to outmanouver the Jews and their Yanki lapdogs. Fair fukin play to him.

          • Tudor Miron

            Problem is that Jews are on both sides of this little fight.

          • Redadmiral

            Jewish gambler, when in doubt back both sides. France and Britain (The Waterloo Campaign) House of Rothchild supplied finance to both and made a killing on the outcome on the London Exchange. French, German war of 1871 same trick. WW1 was a much bigger puzzle. However James Corbett of the “Corbett Report”, has made a wonderful documentary which reveals similar shenanigans. WW11 the Jew Bankers were again supporting both sides financially. ‘Tis their stock in trade.

      • Ricky Miller

        No. Wrong. Mattis is resigning in a huff in protest of Trump’s Syria pullout and an upcoming decision regarding a drawdown in U.S. forces Afghanistan. Mattis says as much in his letter: “…the President deserves to have a Secretary of Defense more aligned with his views.”

        • Zionism = EVIL

          Also Afghan semi-pullout as Trump just tweeted that he wants to remove 7,000 US losers out of a total Americunt force of 15,000 in Afghanistan.

          • Jens Holm

    • Zionism = EVIL

  • Django

    Ridiculous! They should sent Mr. Macron in a yellow jacket, to follow up the stealing of Syrian gas and oil resources with his miscreants, whatever their names are. Do not believe his own citizens would enjoy in the advantages of the cheap stolen fuel for their cars, … Once slave, always slaves !!!

  • Tudor Miron

    French will run from Turks (FSA) that is for sure. They would not help the Kurds even if those promise them thick and thin. I prefer to wait and see if Americans really withdraw and than we can see what is going on. We can’t know for sure what is on Erdogans minds. We don’t know if US is really pulling out. But Franse along is a non factor – that’s not about hot cuture :)

  • Dicksonrp

    I hope Mr Putin and Assad don’t allow this to happen.

  • FB

    Well that’s pretty funny…I wonder what Erdogan is thinking right now about little Napoleon wannabe micron…I’m sure the 20,000 FSA headchoppers will be duly impressed by the French ‘military’ presence…maybe they can strike up ‘Le Marseillaise as the headchoppers pound them into the desert dust…

    • Bigaess Wangmane

      The muslims in France don’t fear the French police/military but we’re suppose to think a small mercenary force of frogs are going to deter the Jihadis backed by Turkish army from slaughtering the kurds like common rats?

      • Jens Holm

        Democrasy is to not fear police, courts, jails and militaries. And WHY. They work for the Goverment, and the Goverment has the Parlament as base, ehich we vore for.

        You belowed muslims not even know which country they are in and as in mosty muslim countries systemacticly keep themselves as stupid as possible even isolating most of half of the populations dressing them in tents protecting them against men of muslim origin.

        A great part of the muslims in France are like that handcuffed by religion and culture even blaming the normal ones there for it.

        We saw exact the same under and after the USSR collapse. The police and the militaries were enemies.

        There are no reason for muslims to that fear. Its much more those muslims are so used to be treated bas in their own and their homelands, so the y cant handle being treated relative nice.

  • Dinko Zorić

    yes, after all Syria is their former colony

  • J Roderet

    Either way, France will not be in northern Syria for much longer. They will either retreat before the fighting gets heavy or they will surrender to the Turks. This will be another humiliating blow to the Macron regime.

    Another minister replaced. How mad can it be before they replace Trump ?

    • Ricky Miller

      Actually not most Americans. In 2013 a Congressional authorization of force bill for Syria had to be pulled from consideration in the face of public disapproval. Polls are all over the place now but it’s probably about 50/50. But the 50% support is shallow and would reverse quickly in the case of losses or hardship. And most of the Presidents supporters who voted for him in swing states are against these endless involvements now. He needs them if he wants any chance of re-election.

      • Jens Holm

        Things were very different in 2013. Whatever they support now Syria was not as 5 years ago as well.

        The elections in USA in all levels seldom is about foreign politics at all. When You write what swingstates are. its internal, which hardly cares a lot for anything in Syria as long as there are not many coffins.

        But they do know Al Qaida, where Twin Towers made USA beserk. Even many muslim see thoings like that as a Victory, many muslims feel the payback by less hesitation.

        The same goes for ISIS. Even few left compared to maximum easy can change Your polls.

        I see big problems especially for the Republicans but dont see them as You. Democrates seemes a little more “clean”, but seemes to remain to much establishment.

  • Robert McMaster

    If the French send over some yellow vest folks, they might be allowed to leave with some dignity. But on their own they are small potatoes and so will get and deserve a pounding.

  • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

    Just like the good old Sykes-Picot times! France, UK and Imperial Germany plan to complete the partition of Syria under the pretext of fighting ISIS and make good on their “Assad must go farts”.
    I wonder how many millions of Indians, Pakistanis, Nigerians, South Africans and Namibians are prepared to die in Syria for their ex-imperial masters???

  • pjt

    France are former colonizers of Syria..guess they want back in

    Hope they are targeted & chased out.

      It would be a big improvement, if France took over again. Their main mistake was to divide Kurds in 4.

    France better look after its own people instead of interfering in other countries. While France is struggling with it economy and Macron’s attempt to increase the taxes for working people has backfired it has the money to illegally be in another country spending millions in not billions of dollars in Syria.

  • dutchnational

    France might like to try as Macron has suffered a political defeat within France and might like to try to score politically abroad. Given french popular support for kurds, it might be popular within France.

    France will find it difficult to realise this ambition as it lacks assets to transport its forces and supplies and it needs at the minimum tacit support from Iraq. In the end, France needs to support aircover for its forces and it is doubtfull it can. It would need patriots stationed there for air defense and rafaels to cover SDF forces and get turks out of the region. Artillery units are already based in the region.

    I wish them well and hope to see them realise their aims, but I will not bet money on it.
