The CIA/ISIS controlled Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that 43 American tank transporters and vehicles arrived to the outskirts of Syria’s Manbij to aid in a battle against ISIS.

This military support will aid Syria’s Democratic Forces, which are backed by the international coalition, in its decisive battle that will be launched against ISIS.

The US-led coalition had deployed 400 extra American soldiers in Syria to prevent any clashes between the Syrian factions which Ankara and Washington support.

According to Syrian activists, the Syrian regime forces had displaced Manbij residents in eastern Aleppo and sent them to detention camps in the town of Jibrin.

Activists added that Syria’s Democratic Forces had prevented men from Manbij from returning home.

    So now, wait a minute…..the U.S. has been supplying DAESH with Raytheon TOW missiles which can take down just about anything on wheels or tracks, just suppose some of those “moderate militants” decides to use an American transport or troop carrier for target practice using a TOW missile.
    Then what?
    Or maybe a suicide bombing at a Marine barracks again, just to get the message across to Trump not to let the war wind down or even think about defeating Saudi Arabia’s head choppers.
    So as C-130s come trundling into Dover AFB laden with flag draped coffins, just what sort of explanation is Trump going to have for the families of the dead?
    The dead may not be vocal but they nonetheless have a lot to say.

    Well, Trump has managed to do what Obama couldn’t (or wouldn’t) do…put many American boots on the ground in Syria. Mission accomplished for starting conflicts with us right in the middle. Now lets see if Trump actually has more than one or two token Takfiri killed. More likely this is just staking claim to part of Syria, daring anyone to take it from us. Let’s see how going it alone, without co-ordination with R/S/I works out. I think we can expect the usual outcome..deaths, defeat and a slide down the slippery slope of expanded war. Man…we’re great again.

      I wonder how many funerals for American soldiers killed in Syria. Iraq and Yemen Trump plans to attend?
      Just how many black eyes and bloody noses is he willing to put up with?

    I’ll guess – the USG has no intentions of fighting ISIS- well maybe a few but – they will bring in a few thousand troopers in order to make sure the Iraqi army and its allies doesn’t hook up with the Iranians, Syrians, and Russians in order to get their Mid East region under control – for themselves. The Americans are going to be there to threaten the home region Armies from teaming up with the rest of the “home-boys”. Of course the 60+ nations Trump formed will now take all the credit for fighting Ameri-Isis.
