From Michael Totten, America and the West’s premier war correspondent – the best since Ernie Pyle at least – an account of Russians and Americans fighting and killing each other.
You probably didn’t hear this because few media organizations have even mentioned it, but Russia committed an act of war against the United States a little more than a week ago. No, this is not about more social media and election shenanigans. Russia mounted an armed assault against American soldiers and our allies in Syria, including Kurdish security forces affiliated with the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, at a military base in the city of Deir Ezzor, the largest in eastern Syria. Russian combatants fought alongside Assad regime fighters and Shia militias armed, funded and directed by Iran.
I wonder if that Iranian funding is courtesy of our former President and his failed novelist- and bus driver-turned-national security advisors? Byzantine indeed.
