|USA chalks up yet another catastrophic calamity. This time Syria. Having promoted Sunnis, Saudi Arabia, ISIS and jihad in general against a reasonably civilized ophthalmologist and his lovely English wife Asma, Team USA found (should they really have been surprised) that ISIS was feral fanatical and murderously horrendous.|
To his credit Big Don saw that ISIS was worth obliterating.
So it was all for naught.
China now says they will swap loads of lovely oil for loans to rebuild Syria.
Hawkmoon is correct that Syria did not all become the property of USA but there is still a Team USA invader occupation force in part of it.
The local yokels in that area, not having access to official foreign office paperwork or pixels in Cyberspace behind secure servers cannot know whether their bit of planet Earth is now officially annexed or not. Anyway, the point is academic when Team USA troops have possession of the area.
