U.S. continues to boost military presence east Euphrates
[SYRIAHR] U.S. forces continue re-imposing their influence in the eastern Euphrates region through intensive movements, conducting patrols and returning to former military bases.

U.S. has also brought in large military reinforcement to their bases and posts throughout the region, the last of which arrived in the past few hours to "Qasrak" base in Tal Baydar area in al-Hasakah province.

According to SOHR sources, "Qasrak" base now contains a considerable amount of weapons, ammunition and logistical supplies, after the arrival of large reinforcement in the recent few days.

Observatory activists reported last night a U.S. convoy entered Syria via al-Walid crossing on Iraq border, carrying military and logistical supplies, heading to Qasrak base in Tal Baydar area in al-Hasakeh province.

On April 28, Observatory activists monitored U.S. cargo planes carrying military and logistical supplies, landing at Qasrak base in rural al-Qamishli and al-Omar oil field in rural Deir Ezzor.

Moreover, a column of 300 U.S. trucks headed towards Tal al-Baydar base in rural al-Hasakeh, carrying military aid, weapons and ammunition.

#1 Marko Marjanović, Dec 19 2019: Claims emerged that Saudi Aramco was looking to get US-occupied oil fields in eastern Syria back to capacity: Sources have disclosed that... Aramco has sent experts to discuss opportunities in the oil fields in the Eastern Syrian city of Deir Ez-Zor. The oppositionist news Deir Ezzor 24 [claims], Aramco “started implementing practical steps in this field, where a group of the company arrived in an official mission to al-Omar oil field in the eastern Deir Ezzor countryside.” It is believed that investments will be made through contracts signed between Aramco and the US govt., whose armed forces have been increasing their military presence... around the oil fields.

#2 These are the oil fields meant to provide income to the Syrian Kurds so they can afford to continue the war against ISIS, et al,, if I recall correctly

#3 Trailing wife, why don’t we just leave the Mid-East and let them kill each other. The only countries worth protecting in that whole area are Israel and Egypt. Saudi Arabia allowed 911.

#4 /\ Exactly! Why do we continually attempt to interrupt thousands of years of mooslim culture and tradition.

#5 Focus our efforts on containing the Chinese menace and ending the invasion across our southern border. Repair relations with Russia.

On our list of top three priorities the Middle East should be #8 or 9...

#6  On our list of top three priorities the Middle East should be #8 or 9...

Sure, because the various incestuous branches of Jihad, Inc. will stop trying to destroy us at home and abroad because we’ve become bored of the game. I would agree to pulling out of Syria except for the Kurds, and out of Iraq ditto, leaving the natives to squabble among themselves while we fight to actually win from secure vases among the Kurds instead of trying to herd Arab cats while they attack us as well as each other? With regard to Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh (where I don’t think we’ve been involved thus far), may I suggest teaming up with Dron66046’s crew and quietly hunting down of the ISI’s nasty little toys? There are training camps all over the landscape that need to experience bad batches of chili curry.
