    Am assuming the Syrian government is turning over a blind eye with whats happening, since the Kurdish militant groups are now in bed with the US.

    • BlueInGreen

      Sounds about right.

    • Solomon Krupacek

      wouldbe bigmistake! immediately go there american soldiers to help.

      the opposit way is good. cooperation, officially allow also the languages of minorities. the kurds must feel syria as their homeland. and safe homeland.

        It’s pretty clear now they want to partition the country, SDF is a separatist group.

        Right now syrian war is not a civil warm but a war against foreign invaders, after the country gets rid of the NATO/wahabi scum then there is a chance a real civil war will start between Damascus and the separatist Kurds.

        • Solomon Krupacek

          but in cooperation also the saa can go in that territory.

          • Daniel Castro

            They are not cooperatng, SDF blocked the road to Deir Ezzor through Maskanah, they let the door open to IS flee Raqqah and attack Deir Ezzor and Palmira, these are aggressive actions equivalent to an direct attack, they are helping Is to take Deir Ezzor so they can take it later, and they don’t care about the thousands civilians IS will slaughter if they capture the city, if they want to be allies they shouldn’t act as enemies.

            sdf are arabs, ypg are kurds. in afrin are kurds.

      Maybe, but i still think/hope that Afrin Kurds are not the same as the “SDF” zionist backstabber-Kurds.

    • VGA

      The syrian government wants no part in that conflict at the moment I believe. They are engaged in many other fronts and winning.

  • Daniel Castro

    Syrian war is a real mess, I guess it’s going to be a real case of study on military history.

  • Carol Dale
