Army National Guard Bradley Fighting Vehicles Are Now In Syria Guarding Oil And Gas Fields

A contingent of Army National Guard M2A2 Bradley Fighting Vehicles is on its way aboard U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft to a forward position in Deir Ez Zor in the eastern portion of that country Syria. This appears to be the first wave of heavy armored forces headed to the area as part of plan, ostensibly aimed at ensuring that ISIS does not regain control of oil and gas fields in that province, which the Pentagon formally announced last week.
