With the resistance front’s routing of the US-Zionist-Saudi-backed terrorists in Syria, Donald Trump used that as an excuse to get the hell out. In his customary arrogance, he claimed the US defeated ISIS. So who was arming, training, financing, and transporting the terrorists? The US defeated ISIS with a mere 2,000 troops? Americans must be great fighters. Perhaps that is why after 18 years of fighting in Afghanistan, they are begging the Taliban for a deal. In Afghanistan, the US had more than 160,000 troops at its peak and still maintains 14,000 heavily armed soldiers.
But Trump’s Syria withdrawal plan has been thwarted by the Washington warlords who are addicted to war regardless of how much suffering they inflict on other people as well as their own. After all, it is the children of poor folk in the US that have to die for the greedy corporate elite.
American troops will have to leave Syria, sooner rather than later. It would be best to leave now while there is a chance. The resistance front has prevailed in Syria. Zionist Israel is next.
