Here we go again, American military doing petty work for israel. 🙄

Syria’s state-run media earlier reported that 200 troops had been flown to US bases in al-Shaddadi on 21 January for future deployment at Omar oil field and Koniko gas field in neighbouring Deir ez-Zor province. It was also reported that the US-led military coalition had dispatched 40 truckloads of weapons and logistical equipment to Hasakah.

The United States is plundering Syria’s natural resources to send them to other places that will benefit from American theft, claimed J. Michael Springmann, a former US diplomat in Saudi Arabia.

The United States (US) is plundering Syria’s natural resources to send them to favour other places from American theft, claimed J. Michael Springmann, a former US diplomat in Saudi Arabia.


Syria’s state-run television network reported earlier that 200 troops were flown to American bases in the town of al-Shaddadi onboard helicopters on 21 January.

The town lies some 60 kilometres south of the provincial capital Hasakah, where the US-led military coalition had dispatched 40 truckloads of weapons and logistical equipment, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA), the Syrian government's official media outlet.

According to the reports, the forces are to be subsequently stationed at Omar oil field and Koniko gas field in neighbouring Deir ez-Zor province, as part of Washington’s ongoing moves aimed at wresting further control over oil reserves in Syria.

The writer lambasted what he described as the US ‘wrong-headed approach to foreign policy.

Emphasising that these moves by Washington served to illustrate yet again ‘what is wrong with America’. The US military stationed forces and equipment in northeastern Syria, with the Pentagon claiming that the troops deployment was a measure required to safeguard the oilfields in the area to keep them from falling into the hands of Daesh terrorists.

In October 2019 then-President Donald Trump stated the US will be "keeping the oil" in northeastern Syria.

At the time, Defense Secretary Mark Esper confirmed US troops would remain in the eastern Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor "to secure the oil fields" against Daesh.

However, it was also implied that the Syrian Democratic Forces, the majority-Kurdish forces that fought with the US against Daesh*, would continue to extract profit off the oil produced in the area.

The US is "depriving the Syrian state and Syrian people of the basic revenues necessary to improve the humanitarian situation, provide for livelihood needs and reconstruction," he added.

Politico reported in early August 2020 that the American company Delta Crescent Energy LLC, in an apparent attempt to "legitimise" what appears to be the outright theft of the Syrian nation's oil, inked a secret deal with Kurdish authorities in northeastern Syria to develop and export the region’s crude oil.
The deal, which was announced by Republican US Senator Lindsay Graham on 2 August 2020, who explained that it involved modernisation of the oil wells in northeastern Syria, was denounced as null and void by Damascus.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry's spokesman Abbas Mousavi denounced the deal between an American company and the Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces militia group as "illegal" and a violation of Syrian sovereignty.

Prior to the devastating US-backed civil war, which broke out in 2011 on the wave of the so-called ‘Arab Spring’ protests throughout the Middle East, Syria produced around 380,000 barrels of oil per day.
