The Presient has increased our troop presence in Afghanistan since taking office.
We pulled 50 soldiers out of Northern Syria and into Iraq, but the President followed that up by putting 500 troops in Syria to protect their oil fields.
Similarly, the President is sending 1,800 more troops to Saudi Arabia to protect their oil fields from Iran.
Now, more troops being talked about. While the President talks a good game, there seems to be no slowdown in endless wars.
Don’t think your numbers are accurate, but whatever- they’re not far off.
Iran has a say in how many forces we need in the ME.
That’s just a fact.
This is a part of the “trade war” with China.
If Iran or NK can be used to make us succumb to China’s wishes we’re lost.
