The Unconstitutional Syrian War
- Both corrupt political parties eagerly and openly piss on the Constitution getting us into wars all over the world without a public debate or vote by Congress.
- Again I ask, what the Hell are American troops doing in Syria?
- Keep in mind that just like Afghanistan we will be told that we can NEVER LEAVE Syria because then the region could dissolve in chaos.
(AFP) - Russia on Thursday accused the US-led coalition of deploying missiles against Syrian troops at a garrison in the east of the country, where rebels battling the Islamic State group are being trained.
In a statement, the defence ministry said the "United States has moved two HIMARS multiple rocket launchers from Jordan to the Al-Tanaf US special forces base."
That suggested that the equipment would be used for strikes against Syrian government forces, the statement added.
"Deploying any type of foreign weapons on Syrian territory... must be approved by the government of the sovereign country," it said.

but no one else in America does.
"Forces of the US-led anti-IS coalition have repeatedly issued strikes on Syrian government forces fighting ISIS near the Jordanian border.
"It's not hard to guess that similar strikes will be continued against contingents of the Syrian army in the future using HIMARS," it said.
In Washington, a US Defense Department confirmed the deployment of the HIMARS system to the base, but did not say how many.
The HIMARS system, mounted on a lorry, fires GPS-guided rockets with a range of 70 kilometres (43 miles).
Another version of the system fires small GPS-guided missiles with a range of 300 kilometres, but it is not know which type has been deployed.
