US Wants To Continue Its Operations In Syrian Airspace After Troops Withdrawal

ILLUSTRATIVE IMAGE

The US wants to continue its operations in Syrian airspace even after the formal withdrawal of troops from the war-torn country, according to Turkish presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin.

“Last week, the US delegation led by [National Security Advisor John] Bolton conveyed to us an unofficial five-point document in which the United States confirms the withdrawal of its troops from Syria, the determination to continue the fight against the Islamic State terrorist group and Washington’s intention to maintain its presence in Syrian airspace as part of the coalition,” Kalin told media on January 15.

Earlier, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared that the US and Turkey had reached a “historic understanding” with US President Donadl Trump during a phone talk on the situation in northern Syria. He added that Ankara is going to set up a 32-km buffer zone in the area thus resolving the dispute between Washington and Ankara over the US support to Kurdish armed groups in this part of the country.

    Trump forces withdrawal decision from Syria slammed by Netanyahu. LOL.
    Trump is useless, kick him out from power..

    • verner

      trump is trying to make good on his election promises, i.e. ending the useless and costly wars that more or less have made the country bankrupt. and he is sabotaged continuously by people like bolton and jeffries and fatso who are nothing but mic/ds go between faggots. simple – yep

      • #’~A*QXm(>NRmm]w?dU4vXZ

        And who appointed saboteurs Bolton, Jeffries, and Fatso? Exactly, he who is being sabotaged. Is the sabotage part of his plan – good cop/bad cop?

  • verner

    otherwise down every last one of the destitute states of A’s flying circus of no good!

    First the US has to get it’s troops out of Syria, and it doesn’t appear to be in a big hurry to do that, now that the Jews have taken away what was probably Trump’s primary reason for getting out of Syria. Which was the SADF upgrades to close to peer capability with Russia’s domestic air defense systems. And not wanting to get into a Vietnam style air conflict where the US starts losing planes and air crews.

    The Jews have largely destroyed Russia’s reputation as a military equipment provider of advanced air defense systems against NATO fighters, at least until these systems can be combat proven. And Russia’s reputation as an ally and security guarantor who can be depended on not to sell it’s allies out to the Jews when pressured to do so.

    I’m not ruling out that there is non open source classified information that is contributing to Russia’s reluctance to engage the IAF with the SADF upgrades that were deployed to do exactly that. But the open source information is doing a lot of damage to Russia’s reputation. And is furthering the Jews Yinon plan machinations to get the US withdrawal cancelled and to drag the Syrian war out for years to come, when it could be wrapped up quickly if the US withdrawal proceeds and the IAF airstrikes are stopped.

      Obviously the RF can’t shoot at the Israelis at the same time the Israelis dog is going back to the kennel.

      The RF will forever be stifled by their original hesitancy, it just allowed too much expression from the enemy.

      • RichardD

        I disagree. The SADF can track and target the baby raper’s planes from takeoff to landing. If the IAF planes launch missiles from outside Syrain airspace. The SADF can take the planes down on their way back to their base. Or destroy them and the base that they came from or returned to when the attacking planes are on the ground, and be well within their rights as provided for by international law.

        • bertek

          That would be the end of the pull out.

          The controlled press of the West would go nuts about their homeland being attacked by the Russians.

          • RichardD

            I disagree. It would put the withdrawal back on track because the US policy for over 70 years, from Israel’s admission to the UN to the present day. Has been one of non US military intervention in Israel’s conflicts. Other than resupply.

            The Rusians wouldn’t be taking out the IAF planes and possibly bases, the SADF and SAA would. They already are. It would just be a continuation of what they’re already doing with better, more effective equipment. This didn’t prevent the US withdrawal, it caused it. When Trump saw the SADF upgraded to near peer capability to the Russian domestic air defense network. He decided to get out. Rather than get involved in a Vietnam type air war where the US would start losing planes and aircrews. And the NATO fighters would be shown to be ineffective against top end Russian antiaircraft missiles.

            That’s why Trump ordered the withdrawal.

        • Brother Ma

          Well the Russians did open their big mouth about an “airport for an airport” and NOT follow through.

          • RichardD

            No, that was from a GCC member, Kuwait, source. It quotes an alleged unnamed “Syrian offical”. But it’s almost certainly psyop disinfo from an adversary organization member country:

            “The Syrian Armed Forces will respond by force to any Israeli attack on its bases as a part of new policy, which was adopted by the Syrian leadership following the incident with the Russian Il-20 plane last September, the Kuwaiti al-Ra’i newspaper reported on December 15 citing a high-ranked Syrian official.

            The unnamed official clarified that “this means that a strike on an airport in Syria will be met with a strike on an airport in Israel and so on.” …

            The source denounced Israel’s claims regarding the destruction of the Syrian missile capabilities and claimed that Damascus had received medium and long range missiles guided with the Russian satellite navigation system, GLONASS. The report says that the SAA can use these missiles to respond to Israeli attacks.”

            No real damage was done. If Israel tries anything serious there will be a serious response.
            I hear this all the time. Syria, Russia and Iran are winning right now and have been since Russia got involved. If they don’t win in a day Russia is a sellout? When they start losing you can say that. What is to be gained by shooting down a few USSA or Israeli jets when it will give Israel the green light to order a large USSA attack on Syria? Especially when Syria can be won by being smart, without the need to defeat the entire USSA military at this time. As Sun Tsu says “he will be victorious who knows when to fight and when not to fight:. Every day the racist supremacist global Jewish confederate slave empire dictatorship grows weaker and Russia and China etc. grow stronger. Time is on Russia’s, Syria’ s etc. side, so why rush to fight a battle today (all out war against the entire empire) when it can be fought tomorrow when the enemy is much weaker and you are much stronger?? It may even be the empire can be brought into collapse without having to fire a shot.

          • RichardD

            The US has never intervened in a war between Israel and it’s neighbors and is unlikely to start now. Especially when Trump is trying to get out of Syria. You can’t conflate wars between Israel and it’s neighbors and wars between the US and Israel’s neighbors when they’re separate wars. The war that Israel is fighting in Syria is a separate war from the one that the US is fighting. And the US is trying to get out of that war and has no desire to dragged into the one that Israel is fighting. Regardless of how much the Jews would like that to happen.

          • John Brown

            Richard, Israel just admitted they back the same ISIS and Al Qaeda etc. militants the USSA does. So Richard in world war 2 if an ally sent troops against Germany and not Japan does that mean they are not an ally against Japan as well?

            This is the first big stumble on your part. I hope you are not just a disinfo expert as so many are on the boards.

            Russia is suffering a lot of damage from allowing the Jews to continue to strike Syria after the SADF upgrades were made to deter that.

            No they aren’t I don’t see any order cancellations even when countries are threatened with sanctions by the the empire and its USSA slaves. Show me some order cancellations please.

            Who will buy these unproven systems from a provider that deployed them to deter IAF airstrikes, and then failed to allow their use?

            Lets see, Turkey, India, Saudi Arabia, China etc.c to name a few.

            Don’t you see that as a problem for Russian credibility? No. Attacking or not attacking in a tactic. Not attacking all the time does not equal defeat in any war. One attacks are the right time at the right place.

            Any rational observer is going to question if they work, and if they do, why aren’t they being used?

            No wrong, they look at performance in test and battle situations. Choosing not to use weapon does mean it is useless or inferior.
            The USSA and Russia never used their nuclear weapons except teh 2 in Japan. Do you think their nuclear weapons don’t work because of that?

            Why aren’t they being used?

            Russia does not want to give Israel the green light to order a large USSA attack on Syria? Especially when Syria can be won by being smart, without the need to defeat the entire USSA military at this time. As Sun Tsu says “he will be victorious who knows when to fight and when not to fight:. Every day the racist supremacist global Jewish confederate slave empire dictatorship grows weaker and Russia and China etc. grow stronger. Time is on Russia’s, Syria’ s etc. side, so why rush to fight a battle today (all out war against the entire empire) when it can be fought tomorrow when the enemy is much weaker and you are much stronger?? It may even be the empire can be brought into collapse without having to fire a shot. That is why. Your arguments make no logical or military sense when Russia side is winning,

            Again denying obvious facts does not help your credibility.

            Again the US hasn’t intervened militarily on Israel’s behalf???

            Does the USSA have to intervene every single time to prove they will this time? Answer no. The USSA is in Syria right now with about 3000 soldiers and conducts air and missile strikes etc. is that not intervening militarily on Israel’s behalf?? What about the 2 Iraqi wars, Libya, Sudan, Afghanistan, etc.? Are they not intervening militarily on Israel’s behalf?? Who were those wars fought for?????

            If the Russian side were losing you would be right. The are winning so you are wrong.

      • RichardD

        The US hasn’t intervened militarily on Israel’s behalf, other than supplies, in Israel’s entire 70 plus year history. They’re highly unlikely to intervene if the SADF continues to take down the baby raper’s planes with Russian supplied equipment, and the Syrian government coalition continues to hit IDF facilities with rockets and missiles in response to Israeli war crime airstrike attacks on Syria.

        • John Brown

          The US hasn’t intervened militarily on Israel’s behalf???. The USSA is in Syria right now with about 3000 soldiers and conducts air and missile strikes etc. is that not intervening militarily on Israel’s behalf?? What about the 2 Iraqi wars, Libya, Sudan, Afghanistan, etc.? Are they not intervening militarily on Israel’s behalf?? Who were those wars fought for?????

          • RichardD

            You’re comparing apples with oranges. The US didn’t intervene with direct military action beyond resupply in any of Israel’s wars with it’s neighbors on Israel’s behalf. Not in 48, 56, 67, 73, 82, 06 or any other war. Just as they’re unlikely to intervene if the SADF continues to take down IAF planes and the Syrian government coalition continues to hit IDF facilities in Israeli controlled territory.

            Trump is trying to get out of Syria because he doesn’t want another Vietnam with Russians helping to take down US aircraft. The Jews are trying to get the withdrawal cancelled by showing that the Russians won’t attack IAF or NATO planes.

          • John Brown

            Richard I am starting to wonder about you. As I said if Israeli jets get shot down the USSA goes in. The USSA has intervened directly for Israel many times. Sadam sent missiles to Israel when the USSA attacked Iraq. It’s happened before it will happen again.

            Denying obvious facts does not help your credibility. Again the US hasn’t intervened militarily on Israel’s behalf??? The USSA is in Syria right now with about 3000 soldiers and conducts air and missile strikes etc. is that not intervening militarily on Israel’s behalf?? What about the 2 Iraqi wars, Libya, Sudan, Afghanistan, etc.? Are they not intervening militarily on Israel’s behalf?? Who were those wars fought for?????

          • RichardD

            You’re comparing apples with oranges. There’s a difference between wars between Israel and it’s neighbors, which is what happened in 48, 56, 67, 73, 82 and 06, to which you can add wars with Gaza. None of which the US intervened in militarily, beyond resupply. And US wars with Israel’s neighbors, including the Iraq missile strikes that you referred to. Which Israel didn’t respond to.

            Israel is fighting Syria. The US is fighting Isis, not the Syrian government coalition. And the US is unlikely to fight the Syrian government coalition, other than their fabricated false flag nonsense which was a huge public relations disaster for them, and which they’ve since refrained from.

            The US did nothing when IAF planes and drones have been shot down or damaged by “bird strikes”. And the US did nothing when 10 IDF positions where hit in the occupied Golan. The US is unlikely to get involved in Israel’s war with Syria if IAF aircraft keep getting dropped and IDF bases keep getting hit.

            That’s the point that I’m trying to make that you and others are ignoring.

    • Brother Ma

      You are correct. We have both been saying it. The chickens have come home to roost. Too much hesitancy in shooting down NaTo planes may have cost Syria the War now. It is a crying shame.Stupid!

  • jako

    If Kurds reconcile with Assad and join the SAA there will be NO possibility whatsoever that US or any other foreign jets (that are not invited by Syrian Arab Republic) fly in the sky of Syria.

    The “historic understanding” of 2 INVADER nations (US and Turkey) should meet the same destiny in Syria.
    And their aircraft should be considered as an aggressors only and shot down.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action
  • leon mc pilibin

    Bolton the Chicken Hawk scumbag should be made to lead from the front when he starts war again,especially with Iran.

  • Bigaess Wangmane

    Once the US withdraws from its illegal occupation of the East Euphrates, any of their jets entering syrian airspace will be chased out or shot down if they don’t go scurrying off back over the border like a frightened cat.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    So long as the US jets are coordinating with Assad and not Erdogan it could be ok, as much as Assad won’t allow troops on the ground, he may not be opposed to a French/US no fly zone over this area, they can pay for the jet fuel.
    But first the US better make sure the Iraqis aren’t about to boot them and their airfields out of Iraq, the Iraqis are starting to make threats about doing exactly that.

  • Vitex

    I’d call that a non-headline

  • Rodney Loder

    I’m not surprised that the US would want to continue, wherever a Christian swine wants to fly his plane he will until he lands in the knacker’s yard by mistake, that’s what they did when these Pseudo Christian thieves called on me to sanction their perversion with my Divine Authority, live and learn stupid Christians but only till you greet the butchers knife.

  • Tommy Jensen

    Trump said we would pull out American troops on the ground in Syria, to bring our boys home and save American lives.
    Trump didnt say we wont continue to bomb from the air and from the sea, and to support those of our Allies who believe in freedom. Open your ears fishheads.

  • Kelli Hernandez

    Russias refusal to respond to Israhelli aggression particularly this last attack by Israeli planes that did not use commercial aircraft as cover, is disturbing. As long as Russia refuses to respond the US will dictate the outcome in Syrua
    Syria Russia threat to target Israhell if it again attacked Syrian soil, has been made to look as FOOLS
    Russia willpay for this reluctance with more Israhelli airstrikes while Putin looks the other way .Sad.
