Former US Senator Ron Paul questioned the real reasons as to why would the US target the Syrian Arab Army to block its advance to al-Tanf border crossing so that Syrian and Iraqi armies can not meet together, Anti-Media website reported.
In his weekly column, Ron Paul noted: “But the Pentagon has forgotten one thing: it has no authority to be in Syria in the first place! Neither the US Congress nor the UN Security Council has authorized a US military presence inside Syria.”
So what gives the Trump Administration the right to set up military bases on foreign soil without the permission of that government?
Why are we violating the sovereignty of Syria and attacking its military as they are fighting ISIS?
Why does Washington claim that its primary mission in Syria is to defeat ISIS while taking military actions that benefit ISIS?
Is this policy really in our interest, or are we just doing the bidding of our Middle East “allies,” who seem desperate for war with Iran? Saudi Arabia exports its radical form of Islam worldwide. Iran does not. Iran fights terrorism.
