Joe Biden Invades Syria’s “Inviolate Border” While Threatening Russia

More revealing hypocrisy from Dementia Joe Biden. Just a few days ago one of  Biden’s idiot National Security team was preaching about the sanctity of international borders?

“Why should Americans care about what’s happening in Ukraine?” CNN anchor John Berman asked Jonathan Finer, a National Security Adviser.

“Because it goes to a very fundamental principle of all nations, which is that our borders should be inviolate, that our sovereignty should be respected. If the international system is to mean anything, it should mean no country can change another country’s borders or affect another country’s government by force, and Russia by amassing all the troops on Ukraine’s border is calling into question those very basic principles.

I guess that only applies to Ukraine. Joe Biden just sent armed U.S. Special Operations soldiers into Syria without the permission of the Syrian Government. That is called an invasion.

Of course, we always justify our violations of international laws and borders by insisting we are just defending ourselves against a threat. Duh!! What the hell do you think the Russians will say if they decide to send their Special Operations forces into Ukraine to kill “terrorists” that are targeting Russian allies?

But there is something very fishy and wrong about this latest “counter-terrorism” strike. While it is true that Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi is an ISIS leader, there is ZERO justification to deploy U.S. soldiers on the ground around his house. We had him located and could have taken him out with a drone strike. There is no reason to put U.S. troops and pilots at risk to kill a guy that is not hiding in a bunker.

Biden defenders insist that we needed to send  troops because, “we did not want to risk killing women and children.” Well, that failed. Our soldiers, acting on orders from Joe Biden, killed women and children. Do you remember the last terrorist attack that Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi masterminded against the United States and its citizens? Yeah, neither do I.

This was a political hit. Biden’s polls are tanking and his advisors were scrambling to come up with a foreign threat that would allow Dementia Joe to flex his tiny muscles.  There was no immediate threat to  justify this kind of  attack but who cares about rationale when you are desperate to shore up your shrinking credibility.

Let’s face facts. The death of Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi is a pure assassination without any strategic or tactical value beyond trying to make Joe Biden look competent as a commander. But it actually exposes his incompetence and fecklessness with respect to Ukraine. He demands that Russia respect international borders he himself wantonly violates such borders. I am sure this point has not escaped Vladimir Putin’s attention.

    Some news.
    In the last week of January, Daesh launched a very large operation to “liberate” prisoners from Heseke prison, in north-eastern Syria.
    Number of prisoners: about 4000. These are foreigners moderately moderate head-choppers, belonging to Daesh, whom their country of origin refuses to repatriate.
    Attacking force: about 300.
    Mode of operation: an explosive truck in front of the prison gate. Weapons and explosives were passed to the prisoners. A number of them managed to escape. They went to take refuge in the neighbourhood next door, a neighbourhood spontaneously evacuated by its inhabitants.

    The Kurds (YPG and YPJ, SDF, Asaych and HPC) intervened fairly quickly, about 30 minutes. They were supported by US Special Forces (Bradleys) and at least one Apache in the beginning.

    The prison was recaptured but not quickly enough to avoid the death of guards and service personnel, mainly cooks.
    The fighting to recover the fugitives in and around the old town lasted 6 days. US Special Forces participated in these operations by establishing an active security perimeter.

    The Kurdish forces announced 120 dead in their ranks. On the Daesh side, the toll is confused, from 300 dead to more than 1000. The prison is partially destroyed. All surviving former prisoners have been recovered and transferred to other prisons.

    If successful, this rebellion would have been fatal for the Kurdish-Arab organisation in the region.
    The Kurds and their allies succeeded with the help of US Special Forces. Their presence in north-eastern Syria, entirely directed against Daesh, is amply justified.
    Daesh, the inhuman hydra, is not defeated. Where did they come from? Who helped them? Questions without official answers.

    So I think : «Well done, US forces in north-eastern Syria!». In north-eastern Syria, but not in El-Tanf.

      Imagine being some white guy whose heritage, culture, and race is being vilified, eviscerated, and erased in his homeland finding his purpose in the preservation of an alien people and culture half way around the world? And feeling a sense of accomplishment in helping to destabilize a country and government which is multi-confessional and has protected minority Christians? But whatever, the main propose of the U.S. military in the 21st-century has been to be the mercenary force for Eretz Yisrael.

      @d74 – “Who helped them”

      Erdogan via the Turkish MIT. And then when the prison was recaptured Erdogan in a fit of vengeance had the Turkish Army and Air Force shell and bomb NE Syria killing civilians and destroying a dam and power station. He also reportedly bombed a UN refugee camp in Iraqi Kurdistan.

      By the way, at al-Sina’a prison it wasn’t just Kurds and Americans. Syriacs and Assyrians and Arabs helped also.

    I read something on Mintpress that was equally striking.

    While DC acts as if Russia has burned Kiev to the ground and the U.S. Congress is trying to impose new sanctions on Russia now, the Saudis and UAE have killed hundreds of civilians in Yemen with reprisal bombings.

    Our reaction? Outrage that the Yemenis fight back, threats to label the Houthis terrorists, and a rush to give material defense to the UAE.

    LJ –

    The invasion as you call it was in Idlib, into an area not under Syrian control. It has not been under Syrian control since 2011.

    And you can bet the farm that it was cleared with the Russians in Syria, else we never would have gone in.

    The thing that frosts me about it is that this Iraqi terrorist, the so-called second caliph al-Hashimi or Quarashi, whatever his name was living in peace less than two klicks from the Turkish border. Ankara had to know what was going on there. The Turkish Army still has about 60 observation posts in Idlib, hundreds of MIT agents, and thousands of proxies.

    US national security would be greatly enhanced once Biden drops a few bombs on the massive drug cartel operations south of our own US borders.

    The daily ravages of the out of control drug trade in the US far exceed anything ISIS can or will do. The very ravages Trump highlighted in his 2017 Inaugurations address, when the Democrat and media machine ripped him to shreds for even mentioning this ongoing US urban core degradation.

    Biden insured its vicious tentacles now leak well into the heartland bringing the same inner city devastations to each and every community his failed border policies now infect.
