US-Backed Advance On Raqqah. What Is Going On?
Good analysis of the geopolitical considerations when it comes to the Advance on Raqqah. Will the US led forces entrap ISIS in the city or let them flee to Deir Ezzor which will put the Syrian Army under a lot of pressure? Will the US escalate their arming of the Kurds which threatens both the Syrian Government's authority and Turkey? Either way the US is operating in Syria illegally, as are the Turks. The whole Proxy War is illegal.
