Being a tad dramatic, are we?

I don't think so. The US ad Turkey violated Syria's border with out permission and stationed hostile troops on its soil.

Except in the minds of the brainwashed, this is a dramatic development.

Let's see now. Russia "invaded" Ukraine although it did not send its troops across the border. (The Russian force in Crimea was there by prior arrangement a base leased from Ukraine.)

The US and Turkey, which have declared the intention to overthrow the legitimate government of Syria, have cross a national border with regular troops and equipment and set up bases there, and it is not an invasion.

Right.

When they roll into Damascus then it will be an invasion. Same goes for Russian tanks rolling into Kiev.

Rumor has it that Russia might retaliate by building a base not far from the U.S. base.

One official called the development "very curious."

Who could have guessed that Putin would respond to American aggression?

Dan Lynch said...

Also, if the rumors are to be believed, Russia's jamming equipment can neutralize the American base any time it sees fit.

Trump would convert it into a combined base...

This is still a proxy war.
