The US commandos which are currently on the ground in Syria could start helping the Free Syrian Army in its fight against Syrian’s president Bashar Assad as soon as they are done fighting ISIS, political analyst Dr. George Masse from the American University of Science and Technology in Beirut told RIA Novosti.

US to Cooperate with the Free Syrian Army to fight Assad

According to the analyst the US Special Operations Forces, which have been deployed and are currently on the ground in Syria, could well start helping the Free Syrian Army in its fight against the country government forces as soon as they are done with IS.

“The position of the US is still unclear. They could help the Free Syrian Army though they know well it consists of Islamists. And if they start helping them, it won’t be against Daesh, but against the Syrian Army and the Russians,” added Dr. George Masse, who is also the Chairperson of the Department of International Affairs, Humanities, & Social Sciences of the University in Beirut.
The expert points out that even though US Special forces currently are fighting ISIS, this doesn’t mean that tomorrow they won’t turn against the Syrian army, adding that the US-TOW (“Tube-launched, Optically tracked, Wire-guided”) anti-tank missiles, which were given to the rebels, only prove it.

According to Dr. Masse the Americans will closely follow where the Syrians and the Russians are gaining ground and then will provide more weaponry to the other side, the Islamic terrorists.
He also added that after Russia launched its airstrikes against ISIS, the US with its allies had to adjust its strategy on the ground in fear that if they do not do anything and only watch Russia gaining success, Russian could take control over everything on the ground.

The analyst, however, said that the US most likely won’t provide any help to the Kurdish forces of the People’s Protection Units (YPG), as the US is an ally of Turkey, and Ankara is putting all their efforts in fighting the Kurds along Syria’s border with Turkey as they don’t want the Kurds to have their own land because it is dangerous for the country.

The Americans’ strategy for now will be to try to ‘play with the time’ and watch for developments. It is not in the Americans’ interest to end this conflict soon.

President Obama revealed on Monday that a small contingent of elite US commandos has begun working with allied forces inside Syria to ‘tighten the squeeze’ on ISIS. He also added while speaking at the Pentagon that about 50 US Special Operations forces would help allied groups target ISIS leadership.

    If our Commander in Chief orders our troops and Generals to shoot Syrian army soldiers he needs to be put on trial along with John McCain and the traitors who are in the Senate Committee of our Armed Services. Anyone’s dead toenail knows that the Syrian army soldiers are made up of Christians, Alawites, Druze, Yazidis, Shiites, and the good Sunnis. They are protecting their country, families, and homes from terrorists. There is no such thing as a Free Syrian Army rebel that is a patriot of Syria. They are aligned with Sunni Wahabbi Salafist Jihadist killers. They want everyone to pray 5 times a day to remind tgemselves, and ask for forgivness of the women they rape, mutilate their privates afterwards, torture ckildren and starve them to put suicide vests on. The healthy children are used for live operations to remove their organs to save terrorists that are wounded. The families of the soldiers of the Syrian army are caged, put on rooftops and used for human shields. This is Obama’s, Hillary’s, McCain’s , graham’s, Sessions’s, and Inhofe’s vision of a new world order. Remember Bush invaded Iraq, violently killed 200,000 Iraqis in the bame of freedom in his twisted alcoholic talking to his god, kind. We are going to kill our own Christians. Alawites, and Druze with Yazidis were dorced to become Mislims or heheaded. They don’t have mosques, They pray in homes like we do. What kind of twisted hent government is in charge of our tax money, and where is the sanity of our media. Have we heen overtaken by some alien race? American’s hetternwake up to who is running our country. Paul Ryan has a wonderful looking beard. The man who was in charge of our budget books, is now in charge of the House of Representatives. Third in line to become President. HELLO
