New reports from the Kurdish media in Syria suggest the US is expanding its operations inside northeast Syria, and is now working on two separate air bases inside territory controlled by the Kurdish YPG.
A US project to expand the Rmelian Airfield was initially reported back in January, and the new report suggested that the Rmelian project is almost finished. The second project is at an as-yet-undisclosed site near the Kurdish city of Kobani.
US Central Command issued a statement “denying” that the US had any direct control over any airfields in Syria, though they did not actually deny that the projects themselves were ongoing, saying they are looking to increase “efficiency for logistics” in Syrian Kurdistan.
The Kurdish reports suggested that the US is already actively using the Rmelian field for flights of military helicopters. Even after expansion, the base is not expected to be big enough for most warplanes, but could accept arms deliveries as well as flights to deliver troops to the area.

Mexico should build two air bases in Arizona.
Maybe Russia should build a couple in Alaska.
And to what political personalities should checks be written or investments made with high percent returns?
Who gets wined and dined and pleasured at no expence to themselves by the lucky contractors?
Who will walk out of Pentagon and open door to corporTe offices for putting in good words for tjose contractors; and also signing recommendations and not checking real cost?
What we do know is the funeral arangements under Islamic culture will be short and in the main quite barren of pomp and ceremony, and done in haste because any large gathering can end abruptly as more are sent to hell.
It is not just corporate, military and political operatives who get checks as today many nations supply the Mercenary forces, forces such as those in US where even kindergarten teachers present as heroes to 4 year olds, their paycheck needs signing as well.
Without Syria’s permission, that is, permission from the Assad government, this action is illegal but then again, Washington’s interpretation of law is do as we say not as we do.
