…fulfilling a campaign promise to withdraw from “endless war” in the Middle East.
As a result of many decades of complaints from people around the globe criticizing the United States for its imperialistic politics, and accusations of bullying nations into submission, President Trump, in an effort to make everyone happy, is reducing US military presence abroad. As a first step, he’s pulling our troops out of Northern Syria.
Oddly, the same people who used to complain about the USA being policeman of the world, are now complaining that we don’t want the job anymore. They have questions!
- What about ISIS fighters still operating in Iraq and Syria?
- What about over 10,000 militants currently detained by the Kurds?
- What about security for sprawling camps filled with tens of thousands of displaced Syrian families?
- What about Turkey’s impending incursion?
These are all excellent questions, and I’d like to add another one:
- What about Europe?
What about all those “superpowers” sitting much closer to the Middle-East than we are? Like Germany, or France, or maybe Great Britain. Perhaps they should send their soldiers to Syria and tell Tayyip Erdogan to calm down and stop dreaming about military escapades into his neighbor’s territory.
President Trump has explained his decision.
I was elected on getting out of these ridiculous endless wars, where our great Military functions as a policing operation to the benefit of people who don’t even like the USA.Pres. Donald Trump
The two most unhappy countries at this move are Russia & China, because they love seeing us bogged down, watching over a quagmire, & spending big dollars to do so.
When I took over, our Military was totally depleted. Now it is stronger than ever before. The endless and ridiculous wars are ENDING! We will be focused on the big picture, knowing we can always go back & BLAST!
The last thought.
Europeans are still around. When it comes to dealing with the local problems, Europe should take the initiative instead of looking at the United States. I don’t mind helping our allies, but I don’t think they should expect the US military to do all the dirty work. (While they, the allies, watch the action on TV.)
