Neocons are Rejoicing at Trump Keeping Troops in Syria

Published

on

America First took a blow yesterday after President Trump wrote to members of Congress that he now agrees “100%” in keeping a military presence in Syria.

A group of Senators and Representatives from both parties lauded Trump’s decision to keep a small contingent of troops in Syria.

The group wrote, “We support a small American stabilizing force in Syria” and they added that a force “which includes a small contingent of American troops and ground forces from our European allies, is essential to ensure stability and prevent the return of ISIS.”

NBC News obtained a copy of this letter, which had a paragraph that Trump highlighted. This paragraph said, “Like you, we seek to ensure that all of the gains made in Syria are not lost, that ISIS never returns, that Iran is not emboldened, and that we consolidate our gains and ensure the best outcome in Geneva for American interests.”

Trump responded to this paragraph by writing directly on the letter and signing it:

“I agree 100%. ALL is being done.”

Running on a platform of a restrained foreign policy, Trump vowed to end the fight against ISIS, highlighting the steep cost to the U.S. both in terms of lives and money lost. On December 19, 2018, Trump posted a video message saying “Our boys, our young women, our men, they’re all coming back and they’re coming back now. We won.”

Unfortunately, the Military-Industrial Complex and its Deep State pals have other plans in mind.

Since neocons in the Senate blocked Trump’s withdrawal proposal, the Trump administration has slightly wavered on the issue of withdrawing troops from foreign entanglements in Afghanistan and Syria.

Nevertheless, Trump can still reverse course and re-assert his power as Commander-in-chief by telling Congress to pound sand and carry out full withdrawals anyways.

On foreign policy matters concerning troop withdrawals, the buck stops with Trump. Trump was elected on a platform putting America first and he should remind our do-nothing Congress that’s he ultimately in charge.
