US Sends Military Supplies To Syrian Alliance In First Under Trump Admin

Tyler Durden's picture

Confirming that the US role in the Syrian conflict is likely to expand in the coming months, Reuters reported that the U.S.-led coalition against Islamic State has supplied its Syrian allies with armored vehicles for the first time, expanding support since U.S. President Donald Trump came to office.

The armored vehicles and troop carriers had arrived four or five days ago, said Talal Silo, spokesman for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) alliance, which includes the Kurdish YPG militia.

Though the number was small, he said, "this is evidence that there are signs of new support". "Previously we didn't get support in this form, we would get light weapons and ammunition," he said.

"There are signs of full support from the new American leadership - more than before - for our forces," he said.

As a reminder, yesterday the Syrian government lashed out at the Trump proposal for an implementation of "safe zones" in Syria. It remains to be seen how Assad, whose health has been put in question recently, will respond to this clearest indication yet that the Trump admin plans to maintain its involvement in the Syrian proxy war.

Can U say "Pipeline" folks?

For the morons and tolls, "culture" and religion" do not play a part in this.

If you want truth, then follow the money.

The Suadi-Qatar pipeline (gas) to Turkey will stop Russia's gas monopoly to Europe.

No "good guys" here, folks.

Saudi-Qatar v. Vlad the Impaler.

The poor folk of Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria (an soon Iran) pay the price in blood...

...for "being in the way" of Oligarch profits.

Erdogan is dancing of happiness right now.

Yog Soggoth's picture

I don't think so. The people that have been given support are looking for Kurdish independence from Syria and Turkey. Title should be Kurds want their hills back, and Trump supports that. Iraq is actually being smart about that in that they keep them a semi-autonomous region while giving them seats in parlaiment and oil shares. Turkey and Syria just attacks them for control, and exacerbates the situation.

Saudi terriorrist alliance?

Snípéir_Ag_Obair's picture

nope, Balkanize Syria per Oded Yinon. Israel keeps buying the oil from Iraqi Kurdistan, as it bought the oil from IsIs, cut off resupply to Lebanese resistance using American blood and treasure, hit Lebanon, hit Iran- shit the Breitbart crowd thinks the Shia are the same as the Salafist/Wahhabists Saudi trains, thinks they sre building nukes to hit poor Israel.

just read their own words. Guys it isnt guesswork or conspiracy theory.

Obama/Clinton/NWO stuff.  Not Trump stuff.  Think about the logistics.

CrankyCurmudgeon's picture

Yeah the part of the logistics where Trump could have said "Don't unload them." Simple order to give, easy to follow. Nope, Trump should have known, but perhaps he skipped that briefing.

robobbob's picture

what? you think that the tracking number and shipping status popped up on trumps email?

"your package is scheduled for delivery between 8am to 6pm, please confirm if this is a residence or business location"

Do you really think mccain or cia arent scrambling to hide everything. there is going to be shit buried so deep Trump and his people will never find it.

you forgot two Bush admins buddy, like war in the Mideast is all on the dems.
It is sickening that the modern protestors had nothing to say during those times isnt it?
Cindy Sheehan where were you?

The Bushes are RINOs. They vacation with the Clintons, ffs.


All of Zero's NWO military BS is still in play and will continue for at least another month. Logistics can't turn on a dime.

dizzyfingers's picture

It COULD, but obvisously it's not going to. This is not right. 

Cassandra.Hermes's picture

This can't be done by Trump, it takes two weeks to do such delivery, it takes close to a month to prepare such export documents. It is either Obama or fake news!!!

This is business as usual-our country gutted and cucked,Israels bitch, fighting her war for her
ISIS is Israel.

One cannot maintain respect for Mr trump if we gonna be goin down this tired old road.
Aint 15 years at war enough?

Got The Wrong No's picture

I agree but it's only been a week. The Dems are boycotting his appointees and fucking with everyone of his moves. It took 60 years to fuck things up. Trump can't fix things in a week. You and I have no clue what he will do. 

Battlefield USA's picture

Let's start here:

As for those "safe zones" they are nothing more than where Assad and Russia is NOT AT, and where U.S. military forces... and, the masters of chaos, the CIA, ARE.

All these Color Revolutions and Arab Springs are nothing more than the globalist bringing the non-integrated Gaps into the NWO integrated Core... on behalf of who? On behalf of the Bankers and Corporations.

We took Ukraine and Joe Biden and Sons got their Ukraine oil/gas. We failed in getting Russia out of our targeted Russian Naval Base in Crimea.

So far, we are failing in Syria with our oil pipline, and getting Russia's Naval base out of Tartus.

We'll see if Trump partners with Putin on Syria. After all, John Kerry has admitted "we" have been partnering with ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Al Nusra... or whatever the anti-Assad flavor of the day is/was.



RichardForster's picture

Yuuuge mistake. Let the Russians run their pipeline through Syria and get the heck out of there. Maybe assist with the creation of a safe zone, but nothing more, and certainly do not support the "allies" who are allied with ISIS.


BigFatUglyBubble's picture

I'm sure all these allies LOVE America and would NEVER stab us in the back.  God Bless the military-industrial complex!..... SAD. 

ChanceIs's picture

Please correct me if I am wrong.

There is no civil war in Syria.  Rather the Sunni arabs in Saudi and Qutar want to run a pipe through Syria to Europe.  Since Syria is currently run by Shia, it makes the effort all the more fun for Saudi/Quatar.  Shia ans Sunnis love to kill each other.  That is their sole goal in living.

Russia doesn't want the pipe because the Saudi/Quata gas would cut into their supply monopoly into Europe.  Besides, they like Assad as a useful puppet.  They get to keep their naval base on the Mediterranean that way.  No telling who will run Syria if the invasion was succwssful.

The smart move for Trump is to contract out the war against ISIS to the Russians and guarantee Assad's regime.  We sgould then squeeze Assad's nuts to make sure he behaves.  The way we did with Ghaddafi - before Hillary ruined it for everybody.

Speaking of Hillary, this is why 20% of her campaign funding came from Saudi.  They wnt the pipe in and Assad out.  Hillary would have delivered.  Obama and Kerry were already on board with the program.

Mustafa Kemal's picture

"Please correct me if I am wrong."

IMO, you are correct in all but one place:

This meme "Shia and Sunnis love to kill each other." is what CIA want you to believe. In fact, other than oil, that conflict is one of their masterpieces. Moreover, to classify Syria as Shia and Saudi and Sunni is like classfiying USA as Catholic. Even more moreover, to classify Iran as Shia is a bit overthe top since, although the theocracy is certainly Shia, the general population are not very religious. It has some seed of truth but not much more than that. Neither ruling elite are religious, at all. Just because the Saudis wear that garb doesnt mean they are religious, they just provide cover for the Wahabis as a price of their power.  

chindit13's picture

Mustafa you lying fuck! Was the CIA around during the First Fitna? That was three decades after the Mo died, and correct me if I'm wrong, not even the US existed in the 660s AD.

Shi'a and Sunni have been fighting ever since. They hardly need anyone's help.

"Me against my brother; my brother and I against you."

If you speak Arabic, you know that phrase in its original form.

Sanity Bear's picture

Dude, Sunnis and Shia have been at each other's throats since the day Mad Mohammad kicked the bucket. The moment he was no longer there to hold his personality cult together, it descended into fractious warfare.

Who do you think you're fooling?

sessinpo's picture

ChanceIs     Shia ans Sunnis love to kill each other.  That is their sole goal in living.


They would locw to kill each other, so in a sense, that is why some call it a civil war. Assad is part of a minority in Syria but controls populated areas with a military. Enter the US which empowered ISIS with money and equipment to fight back. Fuck them all. It'll all burn down one day. Damascus will be wiped out. The leaders use religion to justify the war. And sadly, they do have some followers.

So here is a question. Is it better or justified that Putin should use its influence to aid Syria because of their own economic desires? Is that better then what the US has done?

I would rather we didn't be there at all. Europe wants the energy. Let Europe deal with it.

More Bullshit. 

How long would these vehicles have been in transit?  When were they procured and by whom?

This is part of the OUTGOING Administration's series of Fuck Yous and Easter Eggs to Trump.

SHAMEFUL.  The Russians should interdict these and send them back.  Maybe wash and detail them first.

Good point but you don't know that for a fact right? You can have APC's delivered to the ME from the USA in 24 hrs.

Only for the 82nd and SOCOM/JSOC - they're the only 24 hour rapid deploying commands.  Even the 101st Airborne takes slow boats, and has for years - they almost missed the start of Iraq 2.0 because of Erdorat's maneuvering.

yep. does not hapen w/o Trumpknowing.

you have to understand: Mattis is a fucking pitbull, all heart no brains.

Flynn cowrote an absurd book with Ledeen who was likely behind the anthrax shit and definitely... DEFINITELY is a Mossad sayan.

Remember the TOTAL LACK of objection by the Jewish lobby?

Chas Freeman remembers.

None of us have the real facts. We all have are biases and opinions. I for one have found it better to check the circuit breaker before I play with the wiring.  

chubbar's picture

I'm pretty sure that Trump knows that any support for other than the Syrian army is support for terrorists, there are no other forces fighting ISIS over there. I agree, this is equipment from warmonger Obama. I will give Trump the benefit of the doubt, for now. He has a small window of opportunity to show the world where he stands on this and he needs to align with the Russians if he really is sincere about fighting ISIS.

One of these days you will have to stop kissing Trumps ass.  It was Trump that OK'ed the raid in Yemen too.

The Blank Stare's picture

Oh, you mean the raid on Al Qaida in Yemen? Obama supplied SA and bombed the Houthis. What's your point?

44_shooter's picture

I was thinking the same thing - "they arrived 4 or 5 days ago". Trump has only been president for 10 days, so they arrived last week Th or Fr. There has to be SOME kind of transit time after the order is given - which would leave this decision being made the day he was sworn in, the day after?

It's BS.

Mustafa Kemal's picture

"SHAMEFUL.  The Russians should interdict these and send them back.  Maybe wash and detail them first."

Shameful indeed, of course this is the outgoing administrations handy work. Trump could have easily stopped it, if he wanted to.

Jim in MN's picture

Well, if he knew about it.   I am just going with the odds. 

If anyone has a solid read on his personal involvement with armored vehicle deliveries less than a week into his Presidency, by all means please let us know.

Doesn't sound good.  I hope President Trump doesn't cave in to the Zionists.  Syrians deserve to have their Zionist-free govenment as much as Americans deserve to get their Zionist-free government.
