Thread: Zero soldiers were withdrawn from Syria

  1. #1

    Zero soldiers were withdrawn from Syria

    They were just moved around within the country.
    in b4 shylls
    "Despite continued misreporting to the contrary, Secretary Esper and Chairman Milley were consulted over the last several days by the President regarding the situation and efforts to protect U.S. forces in northern Syria in the face of military action by Turkey.

    The Department's position has been and remains that establishing a safe zone in northern Syria is the best path forward to maintaining stability.

    Unfortunately, Turkey has chosen to act unilaterally. As a result we have moved the U.S. forces in northern Syria out of the path of potential Turkish incursion to ensure their safety. We have made no changes to our force presence in Syria at this time."

    Come on, are you telling me that the neocon in chief did not withdraw any soldiers from our illegal occupation in Syria? I wish you guys can see my not shocked face, it is epic.

    Yes because immediately publishing all your troop movements for your enemies is such a great idea smh
    I just want objectivity on this forum and will point out flawed sources or points of view at my leisure.

Let the other people take care of it now."

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Wrong, if Trump wanted war with Iran he could have started one twice.
    We will leave before war erupts, nobody will start a war with us and Trump won't start any new wars.

    Defending what?

    I have no love for Turkey but I refuse to advocate that we should go to war against them for the Kurds who are little better.

    No troops have left and none are moving in that direction..

    Regime Change is still ongoing,, Though the ISIS attempt failed.

    The troops will leave and they were just pulled out of the way of a war, this is yet another war Trump has declined to start.
    And you are focused on portraying Trump as bad for not starting a war with Turkey while in another thread you advocate for allowing Turkey to send terrorists to invade Europe.

    I expect someone to provoke Iran into retaliation. simply because that has been a long term goal.

    And I expect the mouthy Clown to Bully his way through it,, at our expense.

    Trump will pull the troops out and bring them home.
