BI: Clashes with Russians in Syria may soon end in real casualties

In the past few weeks, the number of all sorts of clashes between American and Russian military personnel in the SAR has been growing. The further presence of US troops in Syria threatens to exacerbate relations with Russia and runs counter to Washington's strategic interests. The American edition of Business Insider writes about this.

Not long ago, four US Army soldiers were injured in one such incident. This raises the question of what the United States is doing in Syria and how long it will stay there. Partial occupation of the Syrian territory is hardly necessary in order to prove something to Moscow and to achieve any far-reaching geopolitical goals in the region.

The presence of American troops in the Syrian Republic is contrary to the goals of rivalry with Russia - there are no valuable prizes to fight for. A small US military presence serves as a deterrent but threatens the lives of the US military. Clashes with Russians could soon lead to real casualties

- notes BI.

The further presence of the Americans in Syria threatens that in the near future they may be drawn into large-scale military operations in the north of the country. Moreover, they will fight side by side with Turkey, which has established itself as a not very reliable partner.

It is difficult to justify the American plans in Syria and the fight against IS - the fighters of this organization are scattered throughout the world and are no longer as dangerous as they used to be. The preservation of the US military contingent in the east of the SAR for the sake of controlling the few oil fields is not worth it.

    Nothing has happened yet, and they've already done it. And I talk about it all the time. If you came to war, then you need to fight. Moreover, Russia is legally in Syria. These are the US occupiers! And the invaders cannot be driven out by talk and persuasion. You can hit it well once, you can use someone else's hands, and the Americans will not stick their nose out of their bases.

      It is a springboard for the projection of force, it is a training ground where military equipment and the ability to fight in a new way, including by the hands of others, are being honed, it is a destroyer of American reputation, a place of their humiliation, it is a tool for reformatting the Middle Eastern forces and not only.

      If you came to war, then you have to fight.

      So we are fighting, in a new way, and very successfully, perhaps slowly, but where is the hurry? What for? On the contrary, this situation is beneficial to us and let it continue. It is high time to notice the heroism and professionalism of Russian military advisers. We need the invaders not to guard their "nose" at the base, but to remove their bases, and not like in Iraq - "you will pay us for them first!", But apologizing ... we will wait ...
      all the more so, already the "efficient shpiyon" prepares the American public for a sad end, i.e. to the Syrian American Happy End.
