Trump administration has informed Syrian rebel factions not to expect any support
President Donald Trump has given Russian leader Vladimir Putin the ‘green light’ to destroy the remaining ‘Obama funded’ terrorist groups continuing to operate in southwest Syria.
According to recent reports, the Trump administration has informed Syrian rebel factions not to expect any support from the U.S. military against a Russian-backed government offensive to regain opposition-held parts of Syria.
Just last month Neon Nettle reported that Syrian President Bashar Assad has slammed the US, the UK, and France for supporting terrorists in Syria, adding they are responsible for all the bloodshed in the country.
Assad statement was in response to Western claims that he has been attacking his own people.
“It doesn’t even hold together – this narrative,” Assad said referring to the chemical attacks against civilians on Syrian soil.
Information Liberation reports What a refreshing break from the bombing campaigns he previously carried out (which I suspect were done to get the deep state off his back)!
The United States had earlier warned Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his Russian allies that violations of a “de-escalation” zone agreed by the United States and Russia last year would have “serious repercussions” and pledged “firm and appropriate measures.”
The toughly worded statements had raised the hopes of the Western-backed opposition of a possible American military intervention in the event that the Syrian army’s bombing campaign broadens to an all-out offensive across the southwest.
Assad is a secular moderate from their Alawite minority with broad public support who protects the Christians that the rebel terrorists want to massacre:
The notion we would kill this man and have another Libya and Iraq on our hands is insane.
The U.S. message also told the rebels it was left to them alone to decide how to face the Syrian army’s military campaign based on what they saw was best for themselves and their people.
“We in the United States government understand the difficult conditions you are facing and still advise the Russians and the Syrian regime not to undertake a military measure that violates the zone,” the message also said.

That means do what you must.
The Syrian regime’s main military ally, Russia, carried out airstrikes Sunday in the country’s southwest, defying a cease-fire pact with the U.S. and Jordan.
The United States has supported the moderate mainstream FSA faction with millions of dollars worth of arms and paid monthly salaries to thousands of rebels in the course of the seven-year war under a military aid programme run by the Central Intelligence Agency.
But analysts believe the aid has dropped after U.S. President Donald Trump decided last year to shut down the programme.
Those “moderates” are terrorists aligned with ISIS who film themselves chopping children’s heads off.
Assad and Putin want to crush ISIS and restore order in Syria and risk their own people’s lives and treasure to do it.
We should let them.
