The US position may be “evolving” again… or we just don’t know what it is and it’s wicked confusing. Maybe a little of column A and a little of B?
Hard to confirm, as people cut and paste some reports in social media (We know this, right? :
This is coming after reports over the last day or so that Russia has a deal to lease the Rmelan airfield in the northeast for 49 years; basically similar to the lease they have on Hmeymim airfield in western Syria. Russian cargo planes have been coming into Rmelan airfield and unloading rockets and shit.
If the US leaves the northeast to Russia, that obviously is enormous.
