Russia says that America has no right to leave troops in Syria to guard oil. Calls it “international state banditry.”

U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Friday Washington would send armored vehicles and troops to the Syrian oil fields in order to prevent them from falling into the hands of Islamic State militants.

His comments came after President Donald Trump earlier this month pulled some 1,000 U.S. military personnel out of northeast Syria, a move that prompted Turkey to launch a cross-border incursion targeting the Kurdish YPG militia, a former U.S. ally against Islamic State.

Trump’s decision drew an angry backlash from Congress, including key Republicans who saw the pullout as a betrayal of the Kurds and a move that could bolster Islamic State.

In a statement, Russia’s defense ministry said Washington had no mandate under international or U.S. law to increase its military presence in Syria and said its plan was not motivated by genuine security concerns in the region.

“Therefore Washington’s current actions – capturing and maintaining military control over oil fields in eastern Syria – is, simply put, international state banditry,” it said.

I hate to say it but I kind of agree with Russia that we do not have the right to “protect” this oil. 

It’s not ours and we have no say in who gets it or who deserves to benefit financially from its sale. 

So now we all get to watch and see how long it takes Trump to do an about face on leaving troops behind and somehow spin it as protecting American lives, rather than jumping through Putin’s hoops.

    But doesn’t he always jump through Putin’s hoops?
    It is more likely that he will remove the troops and say that Putin is guarding the oil for us.

    Trump also made the dangerous and stupid claim that ISIS has been eliminated when there are still 25,000 ISIS fighters in the Middle East.

      ” Iraq, June 2003 “I know where Saddam Hussein is hiding,””FUCKUdickcheney!
      “I met an Egyptian lawyer who had worked for the Halliburton Corporation doing legal translation, who told me that during Gulf War 1, a US torture program was initiated at the King Khalid Air Force Base in Saudi Arabia; that Iraqis had been systematically tortured there during the run-up to Desert Storm; that certain specific “techniques” were “perfected” there, involving not just beating and physical force but the applied use of sexual humiliation and shame specific to Arab culture. The lawyer made a startling, though believable, allegation: that Halliburton, in conjunction with the Rand Corporation, had a master plan to instigate this sort of sex-and-humiliation-type torture at various “black op” sites, to record such torture in photos and videos, and to hold those images under lock and key as “ammunition” until such time as they might be needed to divert attention away from the Persian Gulf and the Big Oil free-for-all going on there. This free-for-all would come to be known as the Halliburton Shell Game: tankers full of sweet Iraqi oil would load up at Kuwait City, sail to various US oil ports, do a GPS fix to prove that they’d arrived, get paid for the oil, and then, without actually offloading a single drop, sail back to the Persian Gulf, where the same oil would be offloaded at Kuwait City, turned into fuel for the war front, then sold by Halliburton to the U.S. military for monstrous profits.”

    Do not think the Russians will let us off so easily for the Battle of Khasham back in February, They have already taken posts left by U.S. and the kurds.
