Opinion from TheSorrentino.com: Donald Trump ‘orders immediate and full withdrawal of US troops from Syria’, Neocons fret

 

From a Turkish news agency early this afternoon.

 

Well, excellent. This is a good idea. It also indicates that something significant (more significant than a US pullout) may be in the offing. (That looks to be the case.)

What’s left of the staff over at The Weekly Standard (the now dead neoconservative policy journal) must be freaking out right now.

(From The Telegraph)

The shock decision to pull out US troops was immediately criticised by his own Republican allies as a “huge” mistake and his declaration of victory over Isil was openly contradicted by the British government.

Republicans warned the withdrawal would jeopardise the fight against Isil and undermine US hopes of countering Iran’s influence in Syria.

In fact neocons all over (Washington DC mostly) are freaking out. How dare Trump remove troops from Syria? Why would he do this? Doesn’t he know that once the USA is somewhere in the Middle East it stays – forever?

Senator Rubio Says US Troops Withdrawal From Syria ‘Grave Error’

The U.S. says it is pulling out of Syria. Who are the big winners and losers?
