Skip to comments.Liz Cheney Throws in Digs at Rand in Her Critique of Syria Withdrawal
Posted on 12/29/2018 11:30:13 AM PST by rintintin
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) added her name to the long list of lawmakers to publicly oppose President Trump's decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria. She minced no words during her appearance on "Face the Nation" over the weekend.
"I am deeply, deeply concerned, and I oppose strongly the president's decision apparently to withdraw troops from Syria, the apparent decision that we're now going to be looking to withdraw troops from Afghanistan," Cheney said. "I think the president has done a lot of very good things in terms of beginning to rebuild our military, getting out of the Iranian nuclear agreement, but these two decisions would be disastrous. They would really in many ways hand victories to our enemies, to Iran, to ISIS in Syria, the Taliban, Al Qaeda in Afghanistan. It's a very dangerous path to go down, and we shouldn't be going down it. We need to make sure that we keep our troops there in order to prevent the establishment of safe havens for those groups that want to attack us."

War monger just like W and dick.
What have we accomplished? What do they want to accomplish, besides killing Americans & creating groups like ISIS?
Poison their wells, defoliate their crops, dynamite every bridge, dam, and power plant.
Genie Energy, dad’s on the board
i, too, am concerned...
however, if she wants she can file a motion to declare war
US Constitution, Article 1 Section 8 gives this power to Congress...
We’ve been in Afcrapistan for three administrations. Where are all these people who were screaming about exit strategy?
Liz can always make a motion for congress to declare war, if it she wants to feel better.
Poison their wells
Who is “their”? ISIS doesn’t have any wells or crops, do they?
Another warmongering Fredocon.
We ought to be really concerned about a real war with a real enemy if we are still hanging around there 17 years after 9-11 with no idea how to end it and go home.
The only saving grace is the fact that we aren’t getting Vietnam-level causalities.
A real war is way easier - you can beat them and go home. These low-intensity asymmetrical conflicts are way harder. That’s why the army focused on conventional readiness after vietnam and excelled at the set-piece battles against a state army in Iraq I and II, and made a mess of Afghanistan and the Iraqi occupation.
She sounds like Tiny Tom Daschle;
Deeply troubled and deeply disturbed.
Carpetbagger from DC pretending she’s a down home Wyoming girl. Typical neocon, never saw a war she didn’t like...from a safe distance of course.
If U.S. military action is truly needed in Syria (and not just to enrich the military-industrial complex) then Rep. Cheney should recommend a declaration of war so that the U.S. can justly use its full war capabilities and resources to bring the enemy to unconditional surrender or total annihilation.
“We need to make sure that we keep our troops there in order to prevent the establishment of safe havens for those groups that want to attack us”
Complete kool aid drinking dumbass. I haven’t noticed Afghanistan building an invasion fleet. Liz, let me give you the Siri on this. They cannot hit us from Afghanistan unless we allow the moslems to flood into our country at will. All 19 highjackers on 9/11 were here with our permission.
Build the wall/travel ban. If we notice anything weird, bomb it from the stratosphere.
Put a sock in it Liz.
Perpetual Wars to boost military-Industrial complex, which president IKE used to point out..
