Des forces spéciales US au sud de la Syrie ?
Une raison qui expliquerait pourquoi ils sont tous excités et désireux que Poutine cesse ses frappes en Syrie !
Il semblerait que l’armée Syrienne ait des doutes sur le fait de savoir si des forces spéciales US ne seraient pas présentes dans le Sud de la Syrie, comme le suggère les drones américains abattus.
Les USA ont reconnu avoir des drones en Syrie. La question est donc celle de savoir si ce sont les forces spéciales US en mission dans le Sud de la Syrie qui les utilisent ou si ce sont les mercenaires US qui le font, comme c’était le cas pour les forces spéciales du SAS britannique déguisées en « rebelles de l’EI ?
Ce qui représenterait une invasion et une grave violation du territoire devant la loi et que Poutine chercherait à leur faire avouer ou à dénoncer.

U.S. special forces in south Syria? Downed drone suggests just that

Drone downed by #SAA over Izraa #Daraa countryside http://pic.twitter.com/sHPTthL1Yv
More pictures of the debris can be found here.
The various munition experts on Twitter agree that this is debris of an Aerovironment Switchblade (Datasheet-pdf) loitering munition "for use against beyond-line-of-sight (BLOS) targets":
This miniature intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and lethal platform can be operated manually or autonomously. Switchblade provides the operator with real-time video and GPS coordinates for information gathering, targeting or feature/object recognition.
The switchblade has the size of a remote piloted hobby plane but features a visual and infrared camera and an explosive charge. It can be "suicided" on a target. According to the datasheet the battery powered killer drone has a "10 km radius of operation".
Izraa, where the debris was found, lies (map) at the crossing of the M5 highway from Amman in Jordan north to Damascus and road 109 which runs west to east through south Syria. Izraa is about 40 km north of the Syrian Jordan border and 40 km east of the Golan demarcation line. Anyone who used this armed drone must have been on Syrian ground.
The U.S. Army and the U.S. Marine Corp are the only known users. Since 2012 the weapons has been used in Afghanistan. The system surely requires significant training. Controlling a remote plane 10 km away over unknown terrain is not easy. This excludes the use of the system by some more or less untrained Syrian mercenaries.
My conclusion is that U.S. soldiers, likely some special forces, are in south Syria on Syrian ground on either reconnaissance or targeted killing missions. This is an invasion in violation of international law.
Russia plans to more than triple the airstrike sorties it flies per day in Syria. This to support the several thousand new fighters coming in now from Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq and Lebanon to help the Syrian government and its people.
There should then be enough available flights and men to expulse the intruders from south Syria.
Comment: If true, this is flagrantly criminal and the U.S. will do whatever it can to avoid the truth coming to light. Think about it this way: there are U.S. special forces and intelligence operatives on the ground in Syria, but the U.S. cannot admit this. Russia is conducting hundreds of airstrikes, which the U.S. claims are "not targeting ISIS". Put that together and what do you get? Perhaps Russia is targeting U.S. operatives who have been engaging in acts of terrorism (that's what cover operatives tend to do, after all)? If so, there isn't a thing the U.S. can say or do to stop it.
