"......You seem to have a lot of faith in the US/Kurdish partnership. Frankly I don't share that optimism. The US will drop the Kurds like a hot potato. There will be no US backed Kurdish fighters when that happens......" Well our plans are good plans , if they address the immediate problems at hand . The facts are now that the SDF has weapons from USA and allows oil to be sold by yanks on black market as a reward . Also our plans are good plans if they address all hypothetical eventualities . These are :
( 1 ) Turkey invaded East Syria and drives out SDF .
( 2 ) America colonised East Syria with help of SDF .
( 3 ) SAA defeats Turkey and SDF and USA and United Syria .
( 4 ) A 10 km meteor hits the Earth , we all die .
Now building up western Syria economy and industry will enable it to address more effectively present and future problems . Apart from the meteor hitting Earth !
".....The Iranian backed forces are giving the Yankees hell in Iraq, no Yankee convoy is safe and the same is being applied in Syria......" Iranian effort was important in Syria against the Rats . But when it comes to America , if it has an effect , it is slow . They close smaller bases in Iraq , to combine them into larger ones , more easily protected . they continue to ship weapons to separatist Kurds . They continue to target Iranian bases in Syria . Iran can not escalate in conventional terms , let alone nuclear deterrent . Iran will soon pour more concrete into reactors , and claim victory ! Trump will come again and he will bomb again . To face the enemy Iran needs Nukes not prayers . The baby ISIS Rats may be dead . But daddy Trump Yankee Rat is alive and well . And so is the new Iranian defeatist cement mixer for the Reactors and centrifuges !
If/when Trump comes, the world will be a different place.
What will Iran do with Nukes? Nuke somebody? We have to get real.
