Los Angeles- Filipino American community leaders during the last Thursday, August 25,2016 discussions, expressed grave concern over the American and Turkish intervention in Syria last week that may led to a new war in the Middle East.

JFAV National Coordinator Arturo P. Garcia said, “ we should be bothered when American supported Syrian rebels fighting Syria’s Assad with American Special Forces advisers captured a southeast City near the ISIS-capital of Raqqa near the Syrian-Iraq border. This is the first time it happened.

This comes while the Turkish tank brigade supported by troops and jets entered Syria’s border town “to drive out ISIS forces. This is the very first time it happened.”

Flash Point in the Strait of Hormuz

Turkey is a NATO member nation and an American ally. This situation is alarming as the US-invasion of Iraq in 2003. The Russians and China is supporting the Assad regime in Syria while Turkey and the US as well as NATO is supporting the anti-Assad forces like the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Rotarian Macky Fortu added, “now wonder, there is an escalating tension in the Straits of Hormuz between the US naval forces and the Iranian navy. We should be wary of these events for American intervention will cost us our taxes.

I heard that the US Ships fired warning ships over Iranian fast boats circling around US destroyers. Despite warnings, the Iranians kept on coming so the US destroyers have to fire warning shots from their 50-caliber machineguns.”

Proxy War


Dr. Orlando Cagampan added, “ we should know that what is happening in Syria is actually a “ Proxy War.” The US supporting Israel and Turkey while Russia, China and Iran is supporting Syria and Yemen.

American foreign policy is to intervene when US interests are at stake. Like in Saudi Arabia. The US is supporting Saudi’s war against Yemen and in Israel as well as in Syria.”

KmB’s Andrew De Leon Celi said, “ The problem in Syria will affect youth in the United States. Money for war is taken away from the basic needs like education, health and welfare”
