US TROOPS WILL NO LONGER BE IN IMMEDIATE AREA AS TURKEY PREPARES TO CROSS INTO NORTHERN SYRIA - WH

The US will neither support or otherwise be involved in the looming Turkish military operation in northern Syria, nor will it interfere, as American troops will no longer be in the “immediate area,” the White House has announced.

The US has apparently achieved its immediate goal in the region – nothing less than singlehandedly defeating Islamic State terrorist group and capturing hundreds of their fighters, obviously – and will now generously allow Turkey to take over, Donald Trump’s spokesperson has announced following the US leader’s Sunday call with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Nothing was said about the fate of Syrian Kurds, who are considered to be US closest allies on the ground, ever since the so-called ‘moderate rebels’ turned out a PR disaster. Turkey sees these Kurdish militias as a national security threat that needs to be ‘tackled.’

Kurdish protesters rallied in front of US-occupied military outpost over the weekend, pleading for protection from Turkey’s looming occupation. If anyone bothered to ask Damascus, though, it would probably say both occupational forces are equally illegal and in violation of Syria’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

White House: Turkey to invade Northern Syria
BY ZEKE MILLER
37 minutes ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House said Sunday that Turkey will soon invade Northern Syria, renewing fears of a slaughter of Kurdish fighters allied with the U.S. in a yearslong campaign against the Islamic State group.

For months, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been threatening to launch a military assault on the Kurdish forces in Northern Syria, many of whom his government considers terrorists. The Kurdish forces bore the brunt of the U.S.-led campaign against Islamic State militants, and Republicans and Democrats have warned that allowing the Turkish attack would send a troubling message to American allies across the globe.


U.S. troops “will not support or be involved in the operation” and “will no longer be in the immediate area,” in Northern Syria, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in an unusual late-Sunday statement that was silent on the fate of the Kurds.

It was not clear whether that meant the U.S. would be withdrawing its 1,000 or so troops completely from northern Syria.

The announcement came after a call between President Donald Trump and Erdogan, the White House said.

2. "would have been announced via a speech to the nation..."

Who is this clown? For one thing most Americans don't know or care about Syria, and more importantly this was never our war or fight. And it's not as if we haven't been alternately invading and retreating in the region for years.
