US Establishes New Base In Syria's Manbij Area - SDF Commander

The US has established a new military base in the Syrian area of Manbij in the framework of efforts aimed at countering Turkish threats to launch a military operation in the area, the Russian state-run news agency Sputnik reported on April 12 citing Ebu Adil, commander of the Manbij Military Council within the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

“By deploying additional special forces to the region, the US has expanded its existing military base in Manbij and established a new one on the front line. So right now, there are two American bases in Manbij region. Information about three such bases holds no water,” Adil said. “After the Turkish forces attacked Afrin, representatives of the Manbij Military Council met the US military command and expressed serious concern about Turkey’s possible military operation in the area.”

Last week, Rezan Gilo, joint chief of defense in Syrian Kurdistan (Rojava), revaled that the US-led coalition had started building new bases in northern Syria, including Manbij.

The US was expanind its military presence in Syria despite President Donald Trump’s claims that Wshington should withdraw its forces from the war-torn country.

Later the April 7 Douma attack took place and the US is now even considering a military action against the Syrian government.

    Don’t worry, guys of the PKK, your turn will come, and if the yankees will attack, sooner than it was planned. By the way, you still claim that you are marxist-leninists?

      I think the correct term for PKK/YPG, etc., politics is, “Anarcho-Marxist.”

        Years ago, those guys called themselves marxist-leninists and, if I’m not in error, also stalinists. I’m curious of knowing if the United States of America are supporting such guys, may be one of them will solve my doubts.

          Yes, PKK, et alia, used to call themselves Marxist-Leninist. But their “leader” (in Turkish prison) larded in a dose of Libertarianism (not so many years ago) and rebranded their politics. They now refer to themselves as Anarcho-Marxist. Sells better with cretinous US school children. (Antifa are huge supporters and make up the majority of their “foreign fighters.”)

            Okay, Steven. Thanks.

            Yup, I remember seeing massive amounts of pro YPG propaganda when I visited one of those Antifa/SJW/anarchist hideouts.

        Logically, it makes no sense. Marxism is centrist, statist. YPG is against centralisation, against the nation state. Marxism tends to favour a collectivism. Rojava has a mixed economy: only monopoly capitalism is outlawed (as it often is by the European Union).

          Read their own propaganda.

          • John Hinsley

            What propaganda? I’ve read Ocalan: I don’t NEED to read anything else! You clearly couldn’t be bothered. The correct name is Democratic Confederalism. Ocalan and Bookchin are/were both former Marxists – both are also very critical of Marx as a political theorist and of “political” Marxism.

    Looks like a fresh Scud target.
