Turkish and Israeli Aggression in Syria
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
Trump's pullout announcement changed nothing. The US came to Syria to stay – 18 or more Pentagon bases built for permanent occupation, new ones being constructed, including cross-border in Iraq.
Israel continues its undeclared war on the Syrian Arab Republic – terror-bombing targets at its discretion, largely from Lebanese airspace – Russia doing nothing to challenge US, NATO, Turkish and Israeli aggression in the country, ongoing with no end of it in prospect.
Last month, Russia's Nezavisimaya Gazeta said that Israel is preparing for escalated war on the country – whether US forces stay or leave, part of its aim for a greater Israel, wanting territory bordering its own annexed.
It's the only nation without declared borders for this purpose, wanting them extended, coveting Syrian and Lebanese territory, maybe more from Egypt.
