    How about helping the SAA? I thought Iran controlled the PMU…

      Probably don’t want to get into a war with US-backed isis (i.e. US / British / French / Israeli SOF) – oh, and I probably left out the Canadians.

        No Canadians SOF in Syria , they were sent to Africa earlier and they are commanded by the Prime Ministers office to not engage in NATO Reindeer games. Plus they go where they are needed the most 275 were transferred to Africa. All forces were earlier given the stand down on actions in Syria and all you see are either NVA or Shayret terrorist 13 and french paras.

        They would just clear the iraqi side of the border from ISIS, they will have no problem doing that.
