US to Keep 1,000 Troops in Syria, Despite Pledges to Withdraw

The U.S. military will remain in the war-torn country in spite of President Trump’s pledge to return the troops home.

In a policy reversal, the U.S. government will now maintain a presence of 1,000 military service members in Syria, after having previously announced a plan to withdraw the U.S. military from the country.

The shift represents a victory for forces within Congress and the executive branch that waged an influence campaign to reverse President Trump’s pledge to return the troops home. Neoconservative Senator Lindsey Graham had admitted to seeking to convince the President to drop the popular policy.

White House National Security Advisor John Bolton also had sought to maintain the military deployment.

Former Secretary of Defense James Mattis had even gone to the lengths of resigning his post in the administration in protest of the America First foreign policy realignment.

Now, with a enduring U.S. troop presence in Syria, it appears his exit from the administration was arranged on erroneous grounds.

The military will continue to assist Kurdish-led forces in securing territory from the Islamic State, the once-formidable terrorist group now said to be on its deathbed and holding a last stand in a few small towns in eastern Syria.

Bolton has pushed for U.S. forces to serve as a deterrent of sorts to Iranian influence in the country. It’s unclear how the bellicose National Security Advisor plans to use the troops to counteract Iran in Syria, considering that Syria’s government is closely tied to the Iranians.

Theoretically, Bolton may seek a soft regime change push in the country, even as the nation’s nearly decade long civil war appears to be coming to a close.

The continuing military deployment in the Middle Eastern country comes as a disappointment to the President’s supporters who hoped he’d be more intent on enacting the America First foreign policy vision he campaigned on in 2016.

Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS

They’re from South Carolina and Texas.

Published

The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.

Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.

The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.

We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.

They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.

Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.

These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
