Trump presents Netanyahu with US plan for thwarting Iran’s ingress to Syria

 See the next DEBKA Weekly for an exclusive on the US military plan President Trump showed Prime Minister Netanyahu for thwarting Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani’s drive for a foothold in Syria.

The Israeli prime minister was about to ask the president to retain US troops in Syria east of the River Euphrates as the most effective bulwark against the passage of pro-Iranian forces to and from Iraq. He was preempted. The US president bowled him over with a detailed plan for the US military to do exactly that – in combination with Saudi Arabia and Jordan.  Trump’s operational plan, together with his program for a US military role in Syria, is revealed in the coming issue of DEBKA Weekly out on Friday, March 9, 2018.

      Really how is US even able to be in Syria once Assad has taken care of the terrorists and Kurds would not fight SAA much more powerful army?

      US has no force big enough to take on Assad not to say Hez, Iran and Russia.

      Russia had shown they ate more powerful than the US and game over already.

      So how is US tiny force that gac to fight for it’s lives able to contain Iran.

      I am all eats

        Ha! You think Russia is more powerful than the US? Not even close buddy.
        An American presence in the region is a good idea. Contain Iran, contain Assad, assist the Kurds and moderate forces, and fight ISIS, Hezblh etc.

          Sure US is more powerful than Russia generally IN OPEN SEAS . In Syria?
          How.

          In Syria with the existing forces and situation US cannot even fight Assad not to say Iran, Russia, and HEZBOLLAH …. I say IN SYRIA.

          Tell me how can US air Force defeat SAA alone …? Air force are useless once ground forces fight Hez or Houthis style and YS forces are surrounded and cannot reinforce.

          Syrian SAM can keep skies free of US planes and with Russian SAM even better

          How to defeat Assad. …alone?

        This article is about containing iran. The US can and will increase its presence overnight if it wants to. Russia hasn’t actually shown anything, yet . A proper confrontation with a real military will see if iran’s big talk amounts to anything, or whether they are only good at terrorism. The cancer must be stopped.

    In what kind of science fiction the folks here are living ? The Us will go – go home soon. Men they tried to anex Lebanon and than left than they tried it in Afghanistan and they will leave also and than irak. The szenario is always the same once the islamic countries start insurgency and the us takes losses they leave because they can not take losses and also not israel. This is poiltics. How will the US be able to hold positions once these people start fighting again the us??? Actually they wait wait for to go than it will be fast over and the us will retreat. Later they will leave also their so called aliies in the mideast because the muslim majority hate america and israel. It s only a question about time. I try only to give objective realistic rational szenarios.
    The US already lost in the mideast because 1 billion moslems almost hate them.

      Why don’t Muslims start to love instead of hate…rrvise your books, throw away 90 percent of the hate-filled passages, stop killing each other and everyone else in the name of Mohd’s jihad, end the endless conquest, give your people a chance to live good lives in a safe environment????

          Dear Mr. Muslim,
          The Muslim jihad was commanded and waged in 7th century, long before there was a United States, or the reborn Israeli state, or “Zionists”.
          Muslims invaded our countries from the Arabian peninsula, robbed us, raped our women, beheaded our men, and taxed the rest, long before the U.S. or modern Israel.
          Do the U.S. and Israel take advantage of your lust for war in order to bolster their interests (U.S.) and ensure their survival (Israel)? Sure. But that is only because they have something to work with: your 1,400 year blood lust.

            President Thomas Jefferson sent the US Marines to fight the Muslim Barbary Pirates in the 1780’s.

            “The cause of the U.S. participation was pirates from the Barbary States seizing American merchant ships and holding the crews for ransom, demanding the U.S. pay tribute to the Barbary rulers. United States President Thomas Jefferson REFUSED to pay this tribute”

      Iran has Russia and North Korea selling it nukes, the UN and Obama giving it politicsl cover and financial aid (ending sanctions which were working) and EU as their loyal customer and shill. So why does it bother you when two militaries such as Israel and the US sometimes touch base?

      The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq cost 2.4 trillion – not 11 trillion – but the US did not get 2.4 trillion of results from those adventures and that is because Muslims never stop fighting and slaughtering each as well as non-Muslims who their books tell them (from birth) to hate, conquer, kill or to make into inferior dhimmis to pay the supremacists extra taxes they call jizya – even G-d could not stop the barbarians from their 1400-year killing spree…but Trump can defend the US and its interests and make it really, really hard for Muslims to achieve their life-ending global goals.

        This kind of Chaos even in Middle East is something new, US gov did alot of mistakes, especially in the field that no one attention, which is Saudi‘s gov policy. If we forget about isis and alqaeeda which makes syria a opportunity for iran and Russia to intervene with a logical reason (to fight isis and blah blah blah), in Qatar issue, if this stupid issue with saudis didn’t appear, trump could merg all of gcc countries together, and make a block against iran, but now, not only this useful block isn’t exist, Qatar and now turkey (even if they doesn’t want it) are united against saudis (and US of course).

    The Middle East is a massive mess of Psychotic bloody behaviour. An Eye for An Eye logic prevails and this goes on for generations if not decades and hundreds of years. Islamism knows no borders. They preach their religion to insure global domination so everyone walks around with Turbans and Ladies Dresses praying 5 times a day and killing innocents in between prayers. There is no deterrence among a group willing to kill woman, babies, the elderly all in the name of a God that tells them killing infidels is OKAY. While the “minority” Islamists wreak havoc the rank and file Muslims never stand up and speak out against them. Iran is ruled by Ayatollahs who live high off the hog while their population suffers. They spend billions to wage a Religious war all over the Middle East and it will not end there. They spread their cancer across the Globe in the name of their God. Nothing will stop them. Blowing up the nutjobs might help but more nutjobs are lining up to take their place so you can never cut off the head of the snake because its endless.

    Netanyahu is a Jew. Trump and his son-in-law work for us, just like Putin whose mother was a Jew. They are all friends who work together.

    Did Putin ever attack Israelis or Americans when they bombed and killed Russian (goyim i.e. filthy animals or cattle) fighters?

    Never.

    Putin will never fight against Israel to protect the lives of animals, be they Iranians or Russians.

    Russian arms are just more merchandise we can sell to make money off of. We own and control the Russian central bank hence the entire Russian economy. Russia presents no threat to Jewish lives nor Jewish supremacy. On the contrary, Putin is our willful servant.

    God=Israel

    Don’t be afraid to say it anymore.
