    Macron Changes Trump's Tune: 'We're Staying In Syria'

    Macron Changes Trump's Tune: 'We're Staying In Syria'



    That was quick! Just a month after President Trump vowed to get US troops out of Syria "like, soon," a visit from French President Macron has him singing a different tune. Now he's vowed to remain in Syria to prevent Iran from "controlling the Mediterranean." Macron even bragged about convincing Trump to flip flop!

    What the White House said:

    "The US mission has not changed, the president has been clear that he wants US forces to come home as quickly as possible," Sanders said in a statement.
    "We are determined to completely crush ISIS [Islamic State] and create the conditions that will prevent its return."

    "In addition, we expect our regional allies and partners to take greater responsibility both militarily and financially for securing the region."

    What Macron intially said:

    In a televised interview on Sunday held to mark a year as president, he told reporters that "I assure you, we have convinced him [Trump] to stay long-term" in Syria.

    He also said he had stressed to the US that airstrikes in Syria had to be limited to attacking chemical weapons facilities.

    Macron repeatedly emphasized that France, the US and the UK were the three members of the UN Security Council taking the lead in tackling the Syria conflict together.

    What Macron said after the White House's response:

    Macron on Monday clarified his comments: "I am right to say that the United States, because they decided to carry out this intervention, have realised that our responsibility goes beyond the fight against Daesh (IS) and that it was also a humanitarian responsibility on the ground and a long-term responsibility to build peace."

    "The White House is right to recall that the military engagement is against Daesh and will finish the day that the war against Daesh has been completed. France has the same position."I suggested no change last night.

    French, US presence in Syria: The United States has about 2,000 special forces in northeastern Syria embedded with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a mixed Kurdish and Arab force fighting IS and seeking to stabalize areas under their control. France has an unknown number of special forces advising the SDF alongside the United States. Both countries conduct air patrols and airstrikes against IS. The US and French presence is also viewed as a deterrent against an attack on SDF areas by Turkey or the Syrian regime and its allies.

    Embarrassment for Macron: The fact that the US so quickly contradicted his comments drew international attention. Last year, when attending the Bastille Day celebrations in Paris, Trump spoke of his "unbreakable friendship" with Macron and Macron said of the US: "Nothing will ever separate us."

    Pulling out all the stops on the annual holiday, and displaying France's military might, Macron attempted to show that France is back on the international stage, ready to stand shoulder to shoulder with the US, in particular.

    So when is Daesh expected to be "crushed" and what conditions will prevent their return? It sounds like Trump just gave a recipe for staying in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan indefinitely. Oh, and Daesh is in Libya, gotta put boots on the ground there. And they are in Nigeria and other African countries. Need boots on the ground there. And they are in the U.S. Martial law here.

    Speaking of which, this thread was already debunked in another thread.

    Not Ron Paul's fault really, except that he took what the mainstream media said and didn't wait 48 hours to verify that it was true.

    "Each of us must choose which course of action we should take: education, conventional political action, or even peaceful civil disobedience to bring about necessary changes. But let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."
