ISIS is Done, so Why are We Still Fighting in Syria?


In attacking Syrian government-allied forces in eastern Syria earlier week, the US government has lost the ability to claim that its continued presence in Syria is to fight ISIS.

With ISIS nearly defeated and the Pentagon announcing that the US military would remain in Syria indefinitely, it is clear that the US has another agenda in Syria. By partnering with forces fighting to overthrow the government of Syria (the “Syrian Democratic Forces”) and now by attacking Syrian government forces, the Trump Administration’s new Syria goals look identical to the Obama Administration’s old goals in Syria: Regime change. Trump looks to be upping the Obama ante by throwing in war with Iran (and possibly Russia).
