  • President Basahr Assad received on Sunday European delegation

Russian Federation has succeeded in fighting terrorists together with the Syrian Army, the recapture of Aleppo and Palmyra is the concrete evidence of this success, Syrian president Bashar al-Assad said in an interview with a group of European reporters.

On the contrary, US troops have been sent to fight an organization that did not exist in 2001 in a nation that had nothing to do with 9/11. The Trump administration is significantly increasing the number of US personnel inside Syria to support the assault. In contrast, the forces of other nations - almost all of which have always been seeking Assad's removal - have waffled between claiming that their troops are in Syria to fight Daesh or to depose Assad, placing the Syrian president in an undeniably complicated situation.

The discussed deployment could potentially double the number of American forces in Syria, although they would not, at least initially, serve a combat role. Those deployed in Syria, according to Army Lt. Gen. Joseph Anderson, will be sent to Raqqa. Their current focus is to encircle and ultimately capture Raqqa - Islamic State's base of operations in Syria.

Both the Rangers from the famed 75th Regiment and the Marines from the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit were deployed into Syria as part of the plan by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to accelerate the campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, even as several forces with conflicting agendas converge in northeastern.

But in the meantime, the ramping up of USA forces in Syria adds another powerful actor to Syria's mix and deepens the diplomatic complexities the Syrian conflict presents.

"What are they [foreign troops] going to do?" And there is much the European Union is ready to do, together with the United Nations and the rest of the global community.

"The Americans lost almost every war", he continued, citing Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam.

"I hope this resolution serves as a stark reminder to the world that we must bring an end to this war and sends a message to the governments of Russian Federation and Iran that the world is watching as they aid this authoritarian regime".

"The complexity of this war is the foreign intervention".

In an area no bigger than some United States counties, forces from more than a dozen countries, militias, and rebel groups are also in operation, ranging from Turkish, Russian, and Iranian forces to Kurdish Syrians, rebel armies including some affiliated with Al Qaeda, and Hezbollah.

The new troops would likely be a mixture of service members from the U.S. Army and Marine Corps stationed nearby.
