American airstrikes on a pro-Assad regime, Iranian-backed militia on May 18 and a Defense Department press briefing the following day provided clues of how the campaign to liberate eastern Syria – especially the Euphrates River Valley (which includes the cities of Raqqa and Deir al-Zor) – from Daesh (ISIS) is shaping up.The U.S. airstrikes interdicted a pro-regime militia moving in the direction of American-trained Syrian forces at Al-Tanf, a Syrian outpost near the tri-border area with Jordan and Iraq.On the other hand, Russians who know Syria well understand that Assad – now completely in the service of Iran – is pure poison for Syrian unity, reconstruction, and statehood itself.Once officers loyal to the regime are returned to regime-controlled areas, Syrian Army personnel in the unit might perform some stabilization functions in conjunction with the SDF.In December 2012, the United States and its "friends of the Syrian people" partners recognized the Syrian National Coalition as the legitimate representative of the Syrian people.
