  1. Why? Why are U.S. troops fighting in Syria. For what? The main objective of overthrowing Assad is no longer viable. Our troops are being put at risk for literally no good reason.

    The fact is the average American doesn’t give a damn whether Assad stays or goes or if Iran has influence in Syria or not.

  2. This comes after [Trump publicly declared that the US is in Syria to steal the country’s oil](https://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-us-troops-syria-oil-bashar-al-assad-kurds-wisconsin-rally-1482250).

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://apnews.com/5af57c4ce873b35c22ceb7360f9323ee) reduced by 86%. (I’m a bot)

    > DAMASCUS – A Syrian was killed and another was wounded in a rare clash Wednesday between American troops and a group of government supporters who tried to block a U.S. convoy driving through a village in northeastern Syria, state media and activists reported.

    > Hundreds of U.S. troops are stationed in northeastern Syria, working with their local partners from the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces to fight against the Islamic State group.

    > The incident marks a rare confrontation involving U.S. and Syrian troops in the crowded region where Russian forces are also deployed – and is certain to further escalate tensions.
