Isn’t it interesting?
Some of the same people who excoriated President Barack Obama for pulling the troops out of Iraq are now either silent or are applauding President Trump’s yanking our military out of Syria, immediately. Oh, and soon, out of Afghanistan.
Back then, Trump led the charge. Every opportunity, he blamed Obama for taking steps that were feckless and weak
In November of 2016, the American people elected Donald Trump to be our nation’s 45th President. He campaigned on a platform of bringing our troops back home from Syria and Afghanistan and focusing on an “America First” foreign policy. By announcing he was removing our 2,000 troops from Syria, the President is following through on another campaign promise.

The three greatest recent human rights disasters are: Ukraine, Syria, and Libya. In each nation countless tens of thousands have been killed, wounded, or displaced. America played a key role in all three.
In the case of Syria, 370,000 named victims with estimates of 470,000 total dead. Nearly 1.88 million have been injured and 13.5 million displaced by the war. This of a pre-war population of 22 million. The war has raged seven years beginning in March 2011.
