US-backed militants establish new encampment in southeastern Syria

Militants of Maghaweir Al-Thawra (Revolutionary guards), an islamist group supported by the U.S., have set up a new camp in Al-Zagiph area in southeastern Syria.

The area is located 70 kilometres northeast of Al-Tanf border crossing to Iraq and approximately 130 kilometres south of Al-Bukamal city in Deir Ezzor province controlled by the so-called “Islamic State” (IS, formerly ISIL/ISIS).


According to the statement issued by the group, the new garrison is intended to intensify struggle against IS.

However, it looks obvious that imposing control over Syrian-Iraqi border bears higher priority for the U.S. and their islamist allies, than just fighting against IS.

Remarkably, establishment of the new camp in southeastern Syria coincided with the recent announcement made by a representative of another US-backed entity, Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), in which he claimed that SDF “will not allow Shia paramilitary groups to enter Syria from Iraq”.

Therefore, the true long-term goal of U.S. military operations in southeastern Syria may well be linking up with SDF units in northeastern part of the country and hence effectively sealing the entire Syrian-Iraqi border to isolate Syrian government from Iraq.

    What’s to admire about a pismire in a quagmire – Nothing really, just up the ant(e) and stomp! stomp! stomp! and secure the Syria south-east desert border with Iraq.

    A little oddball but I see Donald Sutherland appear – this time as a laid-back Russian ‘hashed at the tank hatch’ and wondering what all the fuss is about and the sound of “chillin’ injuns” the Neville Brothers ‘Wild Tchoupitoulas’ fills the air and McCain’s rump allies head for the hills in total disarray – this a-way and that a-way…away, away, away.

    “I walked through fire and I swam through mud
    Snatched a feather from an eagle, drank panther blood!

    Meet de boys on de Battlefront.
    Meet de boys on de Battlefront.
    Meet de boys on de Battlefront.
    Well, The Wild Tchopatoulas gonna stomp some rump!”

  2. Amazing what you can do if you are the US.

    Move troops into another country i.e. invade, who is going to stop them?

    • Sooner or later Americans will pay a heavy price for Washington’s hubris and insouciance. As more Americans return in flag draped coffins the excuses and lies being told to Americans will no longer hold sway as it appears to be happening. The lie that American soldiers are bringing freedom and democracy to the middle east or they are defending freedom and demockracy in America has worn to nothing.
      America is morally and fiscally bankrupt. It’s government under total control of israel and its zionist thugs who have infested every stink tank and the Pentagram for years.
