    US says they have 2000 men in Syria

    That's retarded. Military operations still require ground personnel. If nothing else to keep Assad and the Russians at bay.

    Like what just happened when dozens of russian mercenaries were killed for trying to creep up on a coalition base

    Russia as far as i can see has no interest in increasing tensions with the US. Remember the US were starting to build up forces in eastern europe to "counter the russian threat" before Russia had even taken Crimea and the Donbass, which is when the new Cold War started

    All im saying is both sides have an agenda, the truth lies somewhere in between

    Related, NYT were last week talking about how the Syrian gov are apparently gassing their own people literally days after writing an article justifying how they lied to the world about Iraqi WMDs
