The Three Steps of Syria
- Step One - Have the CIA arm Syrian Islamists in an unconstitutional war against the Syrian government.
- Step Two - Have the U.S. military attack the Islamists the CIA just armed.
- Step Three - The CIA will tell Trump we can never leave Syria because it would create anarchy and could turn into a blood bath. (As if it could get worse).
(I 24 News) - US military advisers are operating inside the city of Raqqa, the Islamic State group's last major bastion in Syria, a US official said Wednesday in a first ever official statement on the matter.
The troops, many of them special operations forces, are working in an "advise, assist and accompany" role to support local fighters from the Syrian Democratic Forces as they battle IS, said Colonel Ryan Dillon, a military spokesman.
The troops are not in a direct combat role but are calling in air strikes and are working closer to the fight than did US forces supporting the Iraqi military in Mosul.
"They are much more exposed to enemy contact than those in Iraq," Dillon said.
He said the numbers of US forces in Raqqa were "not hundreds."
The operation to capture Raqqa began in November and on June 6 the SDF entered the city.
The US military is secretive about exactly how big its footprint is in Syria, but has previously said about 500 special operations fighters are there to train and assist the SDF, an Arab-Kurdish alliance.
Additionally, Marines are operating an artillery battery to help in the Raqqa offensive.
