Pentagon readying plan to contain Islamic State, safeguard oil

Public Policy

U.S. military leaders are preparing a plan that could keep Islamic State fighters from regaining a foothold in Syria, while preventing Syrian oil from falling into the hands of Iran or the militant group, a Republican senator said on Thursday.

“There’s a plan coming together from the Joint Chiefs that I think may work, that may give us what we need to prevent ISIS from coming back, Iran taking the oil, ISIS from taking the oil,” Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters after receiving a briefing from the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the White House.

“I am somewhat encouraged that a plan is coming about that will meet our core objectives in Syria,” he said.

    The US has already screwed the Kurds and it is all about $$$. The US is committing suicide with its gunship diplomacy all over the world. Insanity rules Amerika.

    If there is to be another big war, I hope it stays in the ME. That will take it away from Asia, where I live. But it will affect anyone who uses oil or NG.

    The US thinks it can escape any real pain, but I don’t see that happening. I think they are just adding to the blow-back, when it happens. Well deserved when it comes.

    The US is stealing Syrian oil to the tune of 30 million dollars per month. While the US-based and aligned mass media bitches about non-existent Russian forces in the Donbas, the USA is illegally occupying Syrian oil fields and stealing the oil. In the name of “fighting” ISIS, which the USA was using to topple Assad. The SAA has destroyed ISIS everywhere not controlled by the USA and its proxies (e.g. north of the Euphrates). The only locations where there are ISIS elements present is exactly in parts not controlled by the SAA but controlled by the USA.

    Chickenhawk Graham says a plan is coming about to meet our objectives in Syria. And those objectives are oil, oil, and oil. No different than building islands in the South China Sea.

    It is only a matter of time until this little pocket will be surrounded by troops of Assad.

    “FBI Entrapped Flynn With Manipulated Evidence As Clapper Allegedly Issued ‘Kill Shot’ Order: Court Docs”

    “According to the 37-page motion, a team of “high-ranking FBI officials orchestrated an ambush-interview of the new president’s National Security Advisor, not for the purpose of discovering any evidence of criminal activity—they already had tapes of all the relevant conversations about which they questioned Mr. Flynn—but for the purpose of trapping him into making statements they could allege as false.” At the heart of the matter is the 302 form ‘documenting’ an FBI interview in which Flynn was asked about his conversations with former Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Powell alleges that FBI lawyer Lisa Page edited her lover Peter Strzok’s account of the interview – texting him, “I made your edits…Meanwhile, Clapper – who is now under criminal investigation – is getting nervous…Check out Clapper stutter his way through an interview 20 mins after he finds out he’s under criminal investigation pic.twitter.com/C82G3CvH8V — Quoth the Raven (@QTRResearch) October 25, 2019 Perhaps Obama should be too? LOL. Barack Obama is going to love this interview his former DIA James Clapper just gave to CNN about the Durham probe: “It’s frankly disconcerting to be investigated for having done… what we were told to do by the president of the United States.” https://t.co/peAoCvjWCg — Matt Taibbi (@mtaibbi) October 25, 2019”

    Uhuh, Syria belongs to the US, not the legitimate Syrian government.

    Considering the track record I wouldn’t bet a single dime on these isolated troops.

    “Considering the track record I wouldn’t bet a single dime on these isolated troops.”

    cloggo, there is already a track record. The Russian and Syrian mercenaries were sent to capture a US/SDF fort and where massacred. I guess you forgot about that inconveniently. This is not going to happen dummy.
