The battles have become fictitious and so are the victories fictitious . In al Raqqa the SDF are letting ISIS out of the region in most instances to go fight the Syrian army in the Palmyra desert as planned, and keep the SAA busy there . US is partner in everything and in every achievement carried on by the SDF or by the Syrian Army and partner in any achievement carried on by ISIS in Syria and Iraq . It is partner on both sides of Terror and anti terror , and benefits from both sides . It sponsors and fights Terror at the same time holding all the strings and brokering deals with Russia in Syria in order to divide the Syrian pie among the forces present on the ground . There is nothing in Syria that is being achieved without coordination with US through Russia. Aleppo and al Qusayr were the only exceptions were the say belonged to the forces of the Resistance.
