President Trump announced a permanent ceasefire on Wednesday after Turkey and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces met certain conditions guided by the US to allow for a peaceful solution.
“I do believe it will be permanent,” Trump said. “This was an outcome created by us, the United States, and nobody else…we’ve done something very, very special.”
“We’ve saved the lives of many, many Kurds,” he added.
Trump also made the announcement on Twitter:

The bipartisan War Party in Washington D.C., also sometimes referred to as the swamp, criticized President Trump for removing troops from Northern Syria to take them out of harm’s way as Turkey planned an incursion against the Kurds in the region.
Republicans and Democrats cried bloody murder in the days after the announcement was made by the Trump administration, but the region has shown that it doesn’t need US troops to play world police. Regional powers have been able to sort things out without any blood being shed by American forces.
Yesterday, a deal was announced between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin to create a safe zone at the Turkey/Syria border:
Turkey and Russia have agreed what they say is a “historic” deal aimed at keeping Kurdish forces away from Syria’s border with Turkey.
It comes during a pause in Turkey’s offensive to drive Kurdish forces out, creating a “safe zone” in the area.
Under the deal, Syrian and Russian forces will immediately oversee a withdrawal of Kurdish forces.
There is no word from the Kurdish fighters, whom Turkey regards as terrorists.
The deal sets out plans for joint Turkish-Russian patrols along the border next week.
The agreement was announced after six hours of talks on Tuesday between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his Russian host, Vladimir Putin, in the Black Sea resort of Sochi.
A ceasefire brokered by the US was set to expire on Tuesday evening and Turkey had threatened to re-launch its offensive against the Kurdish fighters. It said there was now “no need”.
Trump was also widely criticized for sending a tough letter to Turkey last week, but his strong, unorthodox diplomacy is paying off.
“Today’s announcement validates our course of action with Turkey that only a couple of weeks ago was scorned and now people are saying, ‘wow, what a great outcome, congratulations,'” Trump said.
Although a minimal troop presence will remain in Syria to protect oil interests, Trump makes it clear that the days of the US being used as the world’s police are rapidly coming to an end.
“We have done them a great service and we’ve done a great job for all of them, and now we’re getting out,” Trump said. “Let someone else fight over this long blood-stained sand.”
Trump’s “America First” foreign policy is taking shape, and it is a massive shift from that of his globalist predecessors.
Biden’s Syria Strikes Killed at Least 22 People – More than Both of Trump’s Strikes on the Country
Biden’s airstrike killed 22 people.
President Joe Biden has surpassed President Trump’s body-count for US involvement in Syria’s bloody and seemingly endless civil war- killing more people in one batch of airstrikes than were killed in both of Trump’s military actions targeting Syrian government forces in the country in 2017 and 2018.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has indicated that 22 pro-Assad militia fighters were killed in the airstrike, which reportedly struck three trucks after they crossed the Iraq-Syria border. The airstrikes were staged in response to missile attacks that killed an international contractor and injured US military service members earlier this month, with the Biden administration pointing to Iranian backing of Shia militias in both Iraq and Syria.
Trump’s first missile strike on Syrian government facilities in response to a chemical weapons incident in 2017. Ranges of causalities range from nine to 16 deaths. President Trump oversaw a far more aggressive military campaign to destroy the ISIS caliphate, while dealing with the Syrian government in a more conservative and measured fashion.
Observers maintain that President Trump’s second missile strike on the Syrian government didn’t even kill anyone, with the Syrian government describing six soldiers and three civilians as having been injured in the series of missile strikes that targeted scientific and alleged chemical munitions facilities.
President Trump was in office for four years and avoided inflicting casualties of the kind Biden has in just over a month- on a questionable intelligence basis. Biden’s action may suggest his administration intends to further pursue aggressive action and regime change in Syria, a long-sought priority of the western globalist establishment.
Someone should ask @PressSec her own question verbatim about Biden’s Syria bombing at tomorrow’s briefing (and while the context of her tweet was Trump’s bombing of Syrian forces, the question still applies): https://t.co/9ebYPywQPB

This military action was by every indication more lethal and serious than anything Trump implemented in Syria or Iraq during his presidency- including the killing of Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani. The corporate-establishment media has largely glossed over the event, refusing to scrutinize the questionable intelligence behind the consequential airstrikes.
