"Endless Wars, especially those which are fought out of judgement mistakes that were made many years ago, & those where we are getting little financial or military help from the rich countries that so greatly benefit from what we are doing, will eventually come to a glorious end"!

Although the US-led coalition has ended Daesh rule oover a large portion of Syria, pockets of terrorists remain in the region, as evidenced by more than 450 strikes on Daesh fighters by the coalition in the first two weeks of the year, according to a recent Defence Department announcement.
Since 2014, the US-led coalition of more than 70 countries has been conducting military operations against the Daesh terrorist group in Syria and Iraq. The coalition's operations in Iraq are conducted in cooperation with the Iraqi government, but those in Syria have not been authorised by the Syrian government or the UN Security Council. There were an estimated 2,000 US troops in the country who, together with the opposition Syrian Democratic Forces, controlled territories in the country's east and northeast, which are rich in natural resources.
