Trump backs down again on Syria.



quote:
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested Sunday President Donald Trump now better understands the stakes in Syria and has agreed to reevaluate, for now, his plans to immediately withdraw all US troops from the country.


He now has a better understanding of the stakes in Syria? He's been President for 2 years.

quote:
Graham said that during the President's surprise trip to Iraq last week, commanders on the ground informed Trump that ISIS is not "completely destroyed," which he said was an "eye-opening" experience for the commander in chief.


An "eye-opening" experience for Trump? Too bad he doesn't listen to the people who are around the President to support and assist on a daily basis or else he would've known.

There have been great strides and victories along the way to dismantling ISIS and I credit actions taken under Obama, but I also credit actions taken by the Trump administration to escalate it and achieve greater success. But only Trump and Muleman would think that ISIS is totally defeated or destroyed. They lay in wait. How could he possibly be so surprised to hear this?

Bashar al Assad, Syrias President never asked us to help him get rid of Isis. He did not want us in his country. Russia is more than capable of handling things and is an ally to Assad. The US recently struck what we believe is the main communications hub in Syria. The Islamic State began in Iraq, after we took out Iraq's President.

If Trump believes we no longer need to be in Syria, trust him, he gets good intel.


Trump knows zeroooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

General Mattis has 40 some years of experience & disagrees with you & Trump. So who do we believe in...Gina & Trump or Mattis?

I just saw several retired generals on TV as well. They are not in the least impressed with Trump.

For those who voted for the incompetent Trump, you really need to think through the damage he's done to this country & the world.



I will concede that General Mattis know more about war and strategy than I do. My core belief is that each country has state sovereignty and we should not be at war/engaged in a military conflict/or trying to build, create or help along any fledgling democracy oriented agendas. What does on in any country is THAT country's business. Early on, Assad could have taken out Isis, or called on Russia to help him do that, he did not choose to. So what right do we have going there to fight a war on someone elses territory? We used to have to go to Congress of the UN before going and bombing another country or any of its people, but after Bush, Iraq and the now historic, 'just don't take the vote if they won't agree to let us go to Iraq' event, what ARE WE DOING? Going anywhere, anytime and shooting at groups of people? I even remember Hillary before she was Secretary of State, when she was running against Obama for the Presidential nomination of the Democratic party being asked if she would notify Pakistan before we sent drone strikes there inside their territory, and her response was that she would notify them when our planes were in the air heading there with the intent of bombing high value targets in Pakistan. Pakistan never liked this, which is why they sent a black helicopter ONE HOUR before our choppers landed in Abbottabad for the Bin laden raid and they extracted two people on that chopper. That's right two people got on that chopper and were whisked away. This was on local news in Paki after midnight here that something was going on there, and then after the 'raid' all the locals who were out in the street were gathered up by the Pakistani military and taken off to be debriefed or threatened to keep their mouths shut or never see daylight again. Pakistan bought drones from us and then told us they could handle their own problems themselves, they did not want us interloping in their country. No other country wants our presence there.

We have no legal authority or right to go to another sovereign country/republic and start shooting people at that country WITHOUT the request or consent of the governing authority of that country.

Saddam was bothering nobody. Now look at the situation.

We need to stay home, secure our own borders and stop pissing off the world.

Not understanding why leaving is such a terrible idea?


Neither am I, but one of our most decorated generals ever was really against it and quit over it.

quote:
People complaining about this decision are up for signing up American GIs for another extended military occupation. No thanks.


Well remember when Obama did this and created ISIS? Trump sure loves to justify his actions by reminding us all that “Obama did it too”. I’m still confused as to why Trump continues to do what Obama did, if Obama is his arch nemesis. Odd to say the least. Wouldn’t you think Trump would be doing things differently than the person he hates? Anyway.

quote:
If someone can point to something working in either Afghanistan or Syria lets here it. I doubt we would be leaving if that is the case. America can use its wealth, power and influence in other more appreciative regions like Central America for starters.


Let’s hear it? LOL, such an elementary strategy. “If you can’t lay out a viable foreign policy plan for me, then Trump is right.” So silly.


"Well remember when Obama did this and created ISIS?" Say WHAT?

Isis began to form when Osama resigned as the operational leader of Al Qaida, he got so fed up with it, and that was during the Bush years. Remember when he appointed Dr. Zawahiri to be the official spokesman, and even during the seige at Tora Bora when he was writing his will he told his sons NOT to work for Al Qaida. He was not killed at Tora Bora, they escaped over the border into Pakistan. The children of Al Qaida fighters joined Isis, including some of Osama's sons. Prince Salman said in a 60 Minutes Interview that Khalid was in Iraq working for Isis. You have multi-generational mujahideen fighter's children in Isis and they will not back down.

Al Qaida mostly operates in the Arabian peninsula, Africa. Those remaining in Pakistan/Afghanistan just want to live in peace and after fighting the Russians, and the US in the war that started in 2001 they earned the right to stay there.

No Obama did not create Isis. Isis is the evolution of the US busting up other groups who were mostly just in their own sovereign lands not threatening anybody or doing anything to try to topple the govts. in the lands they live in.

I'm sure I am not the only one here who has wondered what the backstory is behind your Islamic obsession, fawning over Bin Laden on an ABB website, the whole act.

I'm thinking acid O.D. at Syria Mosque in PA - some kind of ABB/Muslim fusion overload. Duane solo on Dreams, groovin on some weird Shriner interior deco carving, minarets, half a sheet of blotter kicks in, next thing it's turbans baggy bloomers curlytoe shoes ali baba aladdins lamp and on a magic carpet ride for life. Open sesame!

Putin on withdrawing from Syria: “Donald is right”.

It’s almost like they know each other.

Very cozy indeed. Like how Bin Laden is always "Osama" in Gina's posts.Like old chums and the guy is really just a big teddy bear singing Cat Stevens songs.
