Honest as the day is long

Syria in 2019
Middle East war correspondent Jenan Moussa, who has covered the Iraq war and other US occupations in the region, voiced the growing outrage over the US resource theft underway in Syria:
Syrian Oil And US Troop Withdrawal, Explained
Trump’s move to ‘secure’ Syrian oil is out of touch with reality
Apparently whose your bag-daddy had a dog day afternoon as he was chased down a tunnel and blew himself up. The dog is recovering from surgery. Trump tweeted:
This was his announcement:
Guarding the Oil
Despite announcing a with-drawl Trump tweeted a few days back that troops would still be left to “guard the oil”. As this is Syrian oil one wonders who he is guarding it from/for.
This is what the Russian defense ministry has to say: US smuggles Syrian oil to other countries – Russian Defense Ministry https://tass.com/defense/1085449
We add the following summary from Moon of Alabama about “Kenny” (al-Baghdadi):
The PKK Kurds have finally agreed to adhere to the Russian/Turkish agreement.
The U.S. says it killed Kenny – again. Kenny was hiding or traveling in Idleb near the Turkish border. Iraq, the PKK Kurds and Turkey all claim to have been involved. Some say the helicopters came from Erbil, Iraq, but SOHR says they came from Turkey which is way more likely. Trump thanks Russia, Syria, Iraq, Turkey and the Syrian Kurds for their cooperation. As Kenny al-Baghdadi is now dead is there still a need to ‘protect the Syrian oil-fields from ISIS’?
The Russian Defense Ministry says it knows nothing of a strike, doubts that it happened.
