So it will take Trump to maintain Obama's promise of no boot on the ground in Syria.

There has been progress but "ISIS is defeated" is a false statement. (not that it even matters)

"Just a few days ago, Brett McGurk, Mr Trump's special presidential envoy for the global coalition to defeat IS, said: "Nobody is saying that [IS fighters] are going to disappear. Nobody is that naive. So we want to stay on the ground and make sure that stability can be maintained in these areas".

It's more like the troops will pop in "as needed."

Ignoring the last two years + however long it takes for the bus to leave Syria, you’re highly astute.

Gosh, it’s almost as if context were a thing!

Nah ....

Of course, it is, just as claiming that al Queda been dealt with, after Obama had bin Laden whacked...

Ignoring that Trump did loosen the RoE to get ISIS squeezed to this point, while Obama could not.
and it took the two years to do it....

Yeah, context is the thing, Obama/Clinton/Saudi/Qatar created mess, with our/their money and finally, we are getting out.
This is one in the plus column for Trump, no matter how much your Trump Derangement Syndrome blinds you with hate...

Bush the Lesser should really get no pass on this one. If you must excoriate previous administrations, try to get the entire story…not just the version you've memorized after hearing it ad nauseam on Faux News.

Most republicans do not acknowledge the existance of the years 2000-2008.



It's astounding what you can get them to believe.

Russia praised President Trump's decision to start withdrawing American forces from Syria, saying that the move creates hopes for "a political solution."

"A milestone story which might evolve from this decision is a real prospect for a political solution," said Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova Wednesday, according to Russian News Agency TASS.

The Russian embassy in the U.S. also shared the statement.

The #US decision to pull its troops from #Syria creates good prospects for a political solution in that Arab country - #Zakharova

How many years to push back Obama's "insignificant" left-Iraq-too-soon JV team ?

I thought it was to let Turkey come in and drive all the Kurdish forces back into Iraq.
