[ Editor’s Note: Syria is of course on 100% firm ground in demanding that the US military forces leave Syria. But the problem is that the US could not give a hoot what Syria thinks about anything.

The UN Security Council is a dead end with the US veto being able to protect itself from that bodies official condemnation. So the only path I see for Syria to have any public leverage on the horrible situation of having the US refusing to leave is getting a full UN vote.

The historical problem there is that the little countries have a sad record of their US foreign aid being held hostage, plus their CIA side incomes, to encourage them voting pro-US. When one cannot count on altruistic motivation for getting support, there is always the tried and true self interest method of the bribe.

So I closed this one question interview on that motivation being that if this Syrian “good invasion” precedent by the US Coalition is left to stand, other countries have to realize that it can and will be used again in the future.

And if their turn should come some day, they will rue the time when they were silent on Syria… Jim W. Dean ]

The Syrian government says US forces must withdraw from the country. Walid al-Muallem made the remarks at a press briefing in the Syrian capital Damascus. He was referring to al-Tanf region in southern Homs province, where the Pentagon has a military base.

Muallem also touched on the Iranian advisory mission in Syria, saying Tehran has no military bases in his country. He added that Iranian advisors and experts are in Syria at the invitation of the Syrian government and they coordinate their activities with Damascus.

  1. US Withdrawal Can’t Leave ‘Vacuum’ in Syria to be ‘Exploited’ by Assad – Mattis
    There’s no vacuum in Syria.

  2. Yes. Israel will stay in Syria and wreck it, using Iran’s “presence” as a pretext. Imagine invading any souvereign country under the alibi : “We do not like the company you keep”. Only Zionists and other terrorists can unashamedly come up with such a scam and get away with it, because they know, like many other bullies, that they have a big older brother who will bail you out when you holler for help.

  3. Watch & learn, US troops will be out of Syria soon. Deep state cabal in USA is in Deep S***. Sometimes you must clean up messes not of your own making. Darkness to Light! Do you know Q?

  4. If the Syrian people could count on fair reporting by the Western controlled media (but they can’t), mass coverage of civilian marches against the illegal coalition and the occupation may force the USA to withdraw. If they didn’t withdraw it would become clear to the world that what the USA is acting against the will of the people and, international law.
