The Pentagon has received an order of US President Barack Obama to deploy more unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in Syria in order to detect locations of terrorists of the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (previously known as the Al-Nusra Front) group, The Washington Post newspaper reported on Thursday, citing unnamed US military officials.

The newspaper noted that the US Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) will have more resources and more authority to track leadership of the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham.

According to sources of The Washington Post, JSOC-controlled UAVs were already conducting more operations in September and have already allowed to kill at least four ‘high-value’ targets.

This move seems a bit strange in the light of a recent statement of spokesman for the US Department of State John Kirby, who said that the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham is not the main aim of the US-led coalition in Syria, where it fights only against the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group.

So, it looks like the Pentagon has ‘sensed something’ – Donald Trump has just won presidential elections in the US, and the country’s department of defense has immediately activated its actions against Al-Nusra terrorists in Syria.

    It’s not to fight them. It’s to give them intelligence on how to move.

    Don’t rely on USA. Make your own thing and destroy these terrorists.

  • Peter Jennings

    Shoot them all down Syria/Russia. Go on, knock yourself out.

    These drones are not stealth aircraft. Maybe they be good target practice? it’s time to get serious over Syria.

    • Tomko Kubianca

      Russia has always been serious. It’s just that the US has been on the WRONG SIDE. Now with Trump in power the US will be on the right side. The Syrians have suffered enough! They didn’t ask for this war it was force on them by Obama and Clinton under the guise of “The Arab Spring”. What a joke. It would almost be funny if it weren’t for all the Syrian people that have died, been displaced, or suffered. Doesn’t ANYONE care about these suffering people? Obama and Clinton as well as their co-sponsor Soros should be tried in Brussels for crimes against humanity. Their little social experiment created a lot of death and destruction. They should be publicly HUNG.

  • janarddan

    Pentagon will make it more complicated for Trump by commiting an “accidental” bombing of Syrian army and helping a temporary advance of al Nusra. There is just no other way to eliminate MIC elites except by being as ruthless as them.

    • Tomko Kubianca

      That ain’t gonna happen. Russia and the US are on the same page now. Trump and Putin will meet and Al Nusra are GONE. Pay attention!

  • carlose

    It is to ensure that none of the Al Nusra leaders survive to speak up about his relations with US, and the support they were given by the Obama administration.

    This is why they have a list of the exact people they need to kill before they get backfired should any of those guys emerge and tell the real story behind Al Nusra, Al Qaeda, ISIS, ISIL, IS, DAESH and every other terrorist brand US has manufactured and marketed in order to support their arab springs.

    • Joseph Scott

      That’s possible. It’s also possible that, being on the way out, Obama finally gave JSOC authority to start killing people they’ve wanted dead for a long time, but State & CIA wouldn’t let them go after.

      • Tomko Kubianca

        They’ll also have to kill McCain. He complicit in this whole ordeal. There are many photos of him with ISIS commanders. He’s not to fond of Trump and Trump is not to fond of him; for good reason.

        • Joseph Scott

          Yes, indeed, McCain is al-Nusra’s best friend and patron. However, while it would be a truly glorious day to have JSOC’s operators deal with that self-serving traitor the way his affiliation with Wahhabi terrorists merits, I’m not holding my breath. The military is reluctant to accept just how deep the rot goes in the edifice of government.

          • Tomko Kubianca

            Once they get rid of all the GAY generals and bring back the REAL generals maybe things might see the light of day.

          • Joseph Scott

            Military people tend to have idealised views of their countries. It’s hard for our military to come to terms with the idea that the USA is The Evil Empire. Aside from that, in actuality, the US officer selection and training system has never produces a particularly outstanding crop. By random luck you get someone with some character and/or talent, but by and large, as far back as the founding of the country, the average general has been indecisive and of mediocre intelligence, and often more of a politician and bureaucrat than a fighter. (Washington, Gates, Greene, Lee and Montgomery, for example, were sorry bunch.) The best ones often get retired for telling politicians things they don’t want to here, like Mattis.

      They won’t kill them all. Some will speak to save their lives.

    Pentagon start resupply of armunition to terrorist.

    • Tomko Kubianca

      Not under Trump they won’t. Clinton was paid to supply them (Benghazi). The rules have changed.

  • gfsdyughjgd .

    America is run by CIA and Pentagon the President follows laid down procedures of Pentagon and only gives authoritarian signatures for the military act to apply.

    • Catfish

      The cia and pentagon seem to out rank the current president, but the rulers of the us are those who control the us currency. Namely the privately owned federal reserve and its owners. Until the means of control of the currency is put back into the hands of congress and the us treasury the us will continue to be ruled by those who currently control the currency which a mostly non us citizens.

  • john mason

    Designed to get a political foothold into the negotiation over Syria. US knows that Syria and coalition

    are winning and it is only a matter of time, simultaneously the YPG are attacking Raqqa. Syria would be best off to turn down US offer.

    • Joseph Scott

      I think JSOC merely took the opportunity to argue they should be allowed to kill these people at last. State and CIA have been blocking their operations all over this area, but with Obama on the way out, (and quite possibly frustrated with how often his advisers have lied to him to get him to approve their agendas), he may have given JSOC the greenlight as a parting shot at his ‘staff.’ As much as he is a product of the establishment, Obama isn’t quite as much of a fanatical member as some would think. He was just the wrong combination of trusting/non-confrontational/idealistic as far as other parts of their agenda not to stop them more. However, he actually threw wrenches in a few of their schemes before, hence we never did the airstrikes on Syria, for example. I think he is actually pretty irritated with how often he has been manipulated, and how many of his own pet initiatives were thwarted or hijacked by his ‘colleagues’ that he may be in the mood to pay them back. Letting the military have their way, in opposition to what State and CIA want is one way to do that.

      • Tomko Kubianca

        The Chemical episode was actually created by America through their so called freedom fighters. That’s when Obama made the infamous “red line in the sand” statement. But when the UN uncovered the true source (The US) everything went quiet; for obvious reasons. The removal of Assad has no grounds so America is in Syria illegally. Everyone knows that except the Main Stream Media in the US.

        • Joseph Scott

          The UN, to the best of my knowledge, didn’t uncover the true source at first, and Obama was likewise in the dark. Martin Dempsey, US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was highly disinclined to intervene in Syria, and asked around for more information. MI6, though otherwise involved to the hilt in this mess, is still rather irritated over the Iraqi WMD mess, and not wanting to be made to look like fools again, nor have their scientists assassinated, had already done a lab analysis that confirmed the batch was not Assad’s. Dempsey got the report from them, and showed it to Obama, pointing out it would be quite embarrassing if they attacked and then this got out. The UN got a similar report soon after, whether leaked by Dempsey or from some other source. In consequence, Obama put the attack to Congressional vote, while the report circulated Washington, and airstrikes were voted down.

          • Tomko Kubianca

            OK…So you think Assad killed his own people? Assad is not the greatest person on earth but he rarely kills his own people. Sorry… I don’t buy it.

          • Joseph Scott

            You don’t seem to understand what I said. MI6’s lab confirmed the sarin was not from any of Syria’s batches. Yes, the CIA supplied it to the jihadists via a lab in Georgia. However, Obama and the military didn’t know that. The agencies of the US government do not all work toward the same objectives. Overthrowing Assad is the CIA and State Department’s project. The military doesn’t get it, and would just like to kill the terrorists, but the National Security Council is run by deep government insiders who won’t let them and who have successfully tricked Obama into all manner of scenarios he didn’t want. Though through Dempsey’s intervention, he avoided that one.

          • Tomko Kubianca

            Bashar didn’t even want the job of being the leader of Syria. Hafez chose his other son that died in a car accident. Syria is the ONLY remaining secular society in the middle east. Why would the US want to ruin that?

          • Joseph Scott

            Because secular governments usually make some attempt to look out for their people and nation. The US government only likes corrupt dictatorships and oligarchies that can be made into obedient vassals. Any leader who would pick the interest of his people over our international projects and corporate profits must be removed. That’s why we attacked Iraq twice, why we overthrew the Iranian Republic, etc.

    • Tomko Kubianca

      With Trump in power the US and Russia will be on the same page. The war will be over within a month. The Syrian people will rejoice. They’ve been put through all this bullshit because of Obama and Clinton. The Arab Spring was an nightmare. Just ask the Egyptians. They figured it out when Obama and Clinton tried to put The Muslim Brotherhood in power. Clinton left Egypt with shoes and tomatoes showering her limo. Syria will be FREE again. The Banking elite will be pissed because Syria will still maintain their own currency and banking system. They HATE that. Don’t piss off the world banking system or you end up like Giddaffy. Like Clinton said “We came, We saw, He died…Ha…Ha …Ha…Haaaaa. What a bitch!!!

  • outer_rl

    Wretched, hopeless, miserable, beggars, taking weapons from the CIA to wage war against their own people, this was always going to end with them getting stabbed in the back and wiped from the earth.

    • Tomko Kubianca

      Arabs can be manipulated easily if they’re convinced that they’re fighting for Alla. That’s the danger of religious fanatics; They don’t think even though they’re being manipulated.

      • outer_rl

        Indeed, and actually, anyone can be manipulated if you know what makes them tick. Clinton supporters didn’t realise they were being manipulated.

  • Tomko Kubianca

    Obama: “Oh gee…I didn’t know Al Nusra was actually Al Qaeda under a different name…Why have we been supporting these terrorists?”

    “Do I still get to keep the Nobel Peace medal? My dauhgters really like that one.”

    Trump must send OBAMA, HILLARY and KERRY to The Hague for War Crime and be sentenced like General TOJO.
