Will Syria Be Trump’s Waterloo? US President Donald Trump is at it again. And this time, it’s all about Syria. He has decided to pull out 2,000 American troops from Syria. On Wednesday evening, in a video message posted on Twitter, US President Donald Trump said, “We have won against ISIS. We’ve beaten them, and we’ve beaten them badly. We’ve taken back the land. And, now it’s time for our troops to come back home. Our boys, our young women, our men — they’re all coming back, and they’re coming back now.” US President Donald Trump was responding, in a so called what he claims to be “the fall of the ISIS caliphate.”
But Has The US President Made The Right Move?
Some of the US President’s Republican allies in Congress, were totally against his decision. A very strong ally of US President Donald Trump, U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, said…
“An American withdrawal at this time would be a big win for ISIS, Iran, Bashar al Assad of Syria, and Russia.”
U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham further went on to say that this withdrawal would have “devastating consequences” for not only just America in the area, but also in all parts of the globe.
What The White House Has To Say
After US President Donald Trump Tweeted, “We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there.”…
Sarah Sanders, White House spokesperson said,
“We have started returning United States troops home as we transition to the next phase of this campaign.” But she added, “The United States and our allies stand ready to re-engage at all levels to defend American interests whenever necessary, and we will continue to work together to deny radical Islamist terrorists territory, funding, support. Five years ago, ISIS was a very powerful and dangerous force in the Middle East, and now the United States has defeated the territorial caliphate.”
The US President Is Not The Only One Celebrating
While US President Donald Trump ‘appears’ to be celebrating, he is not the only one. US President Donald Trump insists that the ISIS is crushed. But according to the latest reports, there are probably as many as 30,000 ISIS fighters in Syria and Iraq… celebrating a silent victory at the sight of the departing American troops?
James Mattis, Secretary of Defense, has said very firmly that in order to prevent the resurgence of ISIS, the US has to maintain its military foothold in Syria. He said,
“Getting rid of the caliphate doesn’t mean you then blindly say okay, we got rid of it, march out, and then wonder why the caliphate comes back.”
Has US President Donald Trump Made The Right Decision?
In a series of posts on Twitter, US President Donald Trump wrote…
“Getting out of Syria was no surprise.”
The US President Donald then went on to justify his decision, saying on Twitter…
“Does the USA want to be the Policeman of the Middle East, getting NOTHING but spending precious lives and trillions of dollars protecting others who, in almost all cases, do not appreciate what we are doing? Do we want to be there forever? Time for others to finally fight…”
“Russia, Iran, Syria & many others are not happy about the U.S. leaving, despite what the Fake News says, because now they will have to fight ISIS and others, who they hate, without us. I am building by far the most powerful military in the world. ISIS hits us they are doomed!”
“After historic victories against ISIS, it’s time to bring our great young people home!”
The Last Word From The White House…
Dana White, Pentagon spokeswoman said,
“The Coalition has liberated the ISIS-held territory, but the campaign against ISIS is not over.”
