Not To Worry Syria

The president has decided that he was mistaken…..it took all MSM to convince him to stay in Syria…..

In response to domestic pressure, Trump agreed to extend the deadline for withdrawal of thousands of US troops from the northeaster Syrian province of al-Hasaka from the initial 30 days previously announced until April this year.  Journalistic warmongers and hawks in think-tanks and among the US establishment have been railing at Trump with implausible arguments for maintaining the presence of US forces in Syria. The attacks on Trump are mainly justified on the pretext of protecting the US allies, the Kurds, from possible extermination by the Turks. Other analysts dare to repeat the absurd US mantra that “ISIS has between 20,000 and 30,000 militants in Syria and Iraq” to justify the continuous occupation of northeast Syria. If these arguments were not enough, others claim that Trump would be  delivering the north of Syria to Iranian and Russian scarecrows, or that he would be facilitating the “Iranian-Baghdad-Damascus-Beirut connection”. Trump remains determined to pull out, despite his allies Israel, France and the UK begging him to stay longer in the Levant.

After doing what he does best…waffle…..the slowing of a withdrawal of our troops from Syria has dangerous implications…..

 President Trump’s decision to slow the withdrawal of US troops from Syria, after initial reports that he planned for a “rapid” withdrawal, are raising a lot of questions. These center heavily on how this apparently unilateral slowing of the pullout is reconciled with previous promises to closely coordinate with Turkey.

The decision to withdraw, after all, came by all indications at the behest of the Turkish government, and at least in part as a way for the US to avoid getting mixed up in an imminent Turkish war against the Kurdish YPG, with whom they are embedded.

But after the US pullout went from a reported 30 days to “around four months,” does that mean Turkey’s timetable has also slowed for attacking Manbij? If not, Manbij could be attacked by Turkey with US forces inside the city, and the Syrian Army present to try to keep the invading Turks away. This results from the Kurds quickly allying with Syria’s government after the pullout was announced. That could be even messier than the initial invasion envisioned.

I warned my readers not to take Trump seriously….I said when the withdrawal announcement was made that he would waffle and change his mind…..he is NOT a reliable player on the international stage…..if anything he is a fool.

I am an antiwar person and I totally agree with Trump on his withdrawal…….but do not stop with Syria….Afghanistan…..Iraq…..

Even as the Pentagon stammered and the retired generals, ex-CIA chiefs, and war hawks from both major political parties took to the cable news to warn against the prospect of less war—or at least U.S. involvement in them—peace groups on Wednesday afternoon applauded news reporting that President Donald Trump has ordered the withdrawal of U.S. ground forces from Syria.

“President Trump is absolutely right to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria,” said Paul Kawika Martin, senior director for policy and political affairs at Peace Action, in response to reporting from the New York Times and others.

Time for all American adventurism to cease and bring our troops home for a much needed rest.

  1. I have made some statements on a liberal blog in support of the decision to leave Syria. I got a lot of angry responses from the left wing liberals who hate Trump and anything he does. A thought it was a knee jerk reaction to strongly oppose anything Trump does. But they made the same arguments you listed in your post.

    1. They are not Left wing is they support the corporate control of war…..they can call themselves anything they like….he promised but he was dialed back by Pompeo, Bolton and Israel….chuq
