Wow, it’s about time. Leaving US troops there only adds fuel to that fire.
I suspect a deal was made with Russia vis-a-vis toning down the vole in Ukraine/black Sea. Erdogan was a non-factor in withdrawl. Plus Trump saw no good reason to stay and mop up. He probably got a commitment from the russiams to do it for us.
I love this decision, but I SERIOUSLY doubt the Deep State will let it happen. They want us to be there. They are allied with the Jihadists, in fact. Watch for another staged chem attack by them to be blamed on the Syrian govt.
So.... Mission Accomplished?
First reaction is distraction from no wall.
He will get very, very tired killing off the Kurds.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham says withdrawing troops from Syria would be a mistake.
I’ll wait to hear it on MSNBC.
Watch Democrats shout as if they are The War Party over pulling U.S. troops out of Syria.
Oh wait... Democrats are in full conspiracy theory mode now. They’ll claim that Trump is doing Putin’s bidding instead of getting Americans out of a war zone that we haven’t declared war on.
Leave Afghanistan next.
Well, it’s not like the Kurds weren’t warned they’d get stabbd in the back. If they had any sense, they’d make nice with Assad.
The spin we will hear is Trump sacrificing Syria to Russia.
Nope, we’re pouring concrete right now in three locations in Rojava (Syrian Kurdistan).
Not a single American should be over there.
So long as the USA continues to fund and support ISIS and other fantasy “moderate” Islamic terrorists in Syria, ISIS will not be defeated. Let the Russians deal with it. They were invited in, not the USA. Personally, I am sick of the US having their hands and taxpayer money involved in the slaughter of ancient Christian communities there (and elsewhere in the ME, frankly).
Next, get out of Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, etc. and stop funding the Saudi butchers.
Sorry, they will regroup as soon as we leave.
Good ! Now state that we will militarily back and insure the security of the State of Israel and any attack , by any party , upon the State of Israel will be met by a Joint U.S. - Israeli response , to the total decimation of any and all aggressors . Israel for it’s part should grant land for a permanent U.S. military port and land air base . ( as Syria has done with Russia )
Isis pulled out of Syria first. They’re on our southern border, and in Detroit now.
Wish he would have just said “Not our damn fight”, but still WINNING. Hillary and Bill Kristol and the rest of the warmongering pigs are not going to be happy. And to John McCain - “Hah!”. You tried to support an element trying to destabilize Syria.
