No more 'fighting ISIS?' US to stay in Syria to prevent 'win' for Assad and Iran - report

No more 'fighting ISIS?' US to stay in Syria to prevent 'win' for Assad and Iran - report | 23 Nov 2017 | The US plans to keep its troops in Syria long after the defeat of ISIS -- the goal used to justify their illegal presence in the first place -- because the Syrian government and its ally Iran would "win" if they were withdrawn, the Washington Post reported. The Trump administration is "expanding its goals" in Syria to include a "potentially open-ended commitment" to support the Kurd-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the newspaper reported on Wednesday, citing several anonymous US officials. The change comes as the defeat of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS [but still I-CIA-SIS]) terrorist group in Syria seems imminent.
