Syria is about to become a battleground between the United States and Russia, with the forces of NATO and the forces of Syria, Iran, and China backing the two powerhouses respectively. Now there has been official announcement from the White House that Special Forces teams will deploy into Syria to coordinate and lead the efforts of “resistance forces.” Such means a U.S. sponsored side that would (if equipped and capable) undertake a coup d’état of the Assad government.

The media nebulously labeled the deployment as “50 Special Operations advisors,” however, this means the U.S. Army Special Forces (Airborne), the only Special Operations units capable of deploying for long periods of time and conducting the training of foreigners as a force multiplier. For those unfamiliar with American rationale behind the Green Berets (the SF teams), direct action and strike missions are not the primary forte. Unconventional Warfare training is used to train indigenous (U.S.-goal) supportive military as well as civilians as a fighting force in operations that are insurgent or counter-insurgent depending on the foreign country’s status in relation to U.S. policy.

The locals are trained to conduct guerrilla warfare and unconventional warfare operations to the level of an American infantry unit. By so doing this, the host government (or the government we are propping up to replace the current government) assumes the liabilities for its assets and an indebtedness to us (remuneratively or politically/foreign policy). The Washington Post just released a small “blip” to characterize the mission for the deployed SF teams:

“The latest deployment will involve fewer than 50 Special Operations advisers, who will work with resistance forces battling the Islamic State in northern Syria but will not engage in direct combat, Obama administration officials said.”

Such a figure would equate to about 3 teams, with each team capable of training anywhere from 1,500 – 2,000 foreign personnel. Here’s the thing: for every team you know about that is deployed, 2-3 more teams will deploy without any announcement. Tony Cartalucci penned a piece that was posted on characterizing the U.S. planned division of Syria in order to fragment and destroy the Assad regime, and the insertion of SF begins it on the ground.
