Once ISIS has lost all its territory, it will go rural and become a guerrilla insurgency, says US officer

US Won’t Leave Syria After The Islamic State (ISIS) Is Defeated, Says Commander of US Forces in Syria, Iraq

Commander of the US-led anti-ISIS coalition anticipates a lengthy occupation of Syria


The three-star US general in command of American forces in Syria and Iraq says the US will leave Syria as soon as ISIS is defeated, but not really. Actually, they will stick around, because after the ISIS state is defeated there will still be ISIS guerrillas to deal with:

Gen. Townsend promoted a young officer to first lieutenant on Wednesday — and he acknowledged to CBS News that U.S. troops won’t be leaving Syria any time soon.

“I think U.S. troops will start leaving Syria when ISIS is defeated,” Townsend said.

But will ISIS turn into an insurgency when they’ve lost all their territory?

“I think that’s the next stage of ISIS,” Townsend said.

“We call that ISIS 2.0 — an insurgency, rural. So I think we’ll still be here dealing with that problem set for a while.”

But will Americans only fight ISIS guerrillas?

What about any “Assadist” or Baathist, or any kind of pro-government/pro-Syrian guerrillas? We can’t imagine that those will be given a pass if they emerge. Knowing the US they will be demonized and hounded—for defying a foreign military in their own country.

It looks like the US may be in for another occupation of another Middle Eastern Arab country against native guerrillas. And it looks like Syrians may be in for a lengthy US occupation of the eastern half of their country.

    Nice one General Mason of the Baphomet Overseas Brigade. Yeah we’re still believing that Lie-sis is real. A multi-headed Hydra capable of striking anywhere you send them.

    Look at all the European terror attacks that they managed. Wow. Let’s not forget Orlando too. Thankfully though we have US Marines to help us out and equal to that thd militarisation of the Police. Feel much safer now.

    No doubt when you plan your activities in the Pentagram (sorry Freudian slip) meant Pentagon you can factor in raping and murdering civilians, human trafficking and destroying the environment with depleted uranium (a dirty bomb) and some white phosphorus for Xmas.

    Yeah cheers mate. Much safer now that the Septic Tanks (Yanks) are around.

    Well enough said Bigmoo, their days are truly numbered.

    Jas 5:1-7.
    Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.

    Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.

    Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

    Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.

    Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.

    Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

    Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain.

    ISIS is an irregular army of the Pentagon. and as such could be switched off any time they choose. The ISIS field commander is or was the satanist Gen Paul Vallely (retd). They have been actively supported by John McCain, the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. The ultimate intention is to infect Central Asia with ISIS in order to destabilize Russia and China, and wreck countries like Uzbekistan and Tadjikistan.
