The US is Playing a 4D Chess Game in the Middle East That No One Understands

Trump is rapidly ramping up troop deployments in preparation for what could be one of the greatest wars of our generation.

The decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria has been somewhat of a nightmare for the Trump administration. Either that, or the story in and of itself has served as a useful distraction from other issues.

At first, the media hit Donald Trump hard for potentially allowing a genocide of the Kurdish allies it had previously backed to defeat ISIS in parts of Syria. Anyone who knows anything about history will know that this isn’t the first time the U.S. has been accused of abandoning its Kurdish allies.

Largely missing from any serious commentary on the issue is the fact that U.S. troops had illegally invaded Syria to begin with, eventually taking over close to one third of Syria’s territory.

Sorry, but that was pretty lame, no real content whatsoever. The US doesn’t ask other nations permission as to where it sends its troops? Really?? The US craps all over other countries national sovereignty?? US foreign policy is focused on the control of resources?? REALLY?? How is any of this news? My ten year old could have wrote this. I hope the Duran isn’t going to follow RT’s slide into broadcasting mental chewing gum for the cognitively challenged…. and the “Trump’s brilliantly played 4D chess game (ha!)” intended to imply that Trumps plans are shallow and poorly thought out?

The seppos THINK they are playing “4G chess” but are actually playing marbles. Even the seppos have no real idea what they are trying to accomplish in the ME, except to try and control the oil flow to the rest of the world.

Bashar al Assad’s father was an ally of the Soviet Union. Bashar al Assad himself is an ally of the Russian Federation. No regime change will happen in Syria.
