Somebody besides D. Goldman thinks Orange Man is right re. Syria:
If 700 days out of US President Donald Trump’s 1,461 days of presidency seem a wasteland of unfulfilled promises and expectations in foreign policy – except, perhaps, on the Korean Peninsula – things dramatically changed on December 19 when he announced the troop withdrawal from Syria.

A follow-up to the above . . .

"US troop withdrawal heralds the New Syria"

Nothing wrong with a little optimism, especially with regard to the Kurds and Israelis. The article doesn't discuss it, but it is becoming more and more obvious that certain deep-state US interests (entrenched Pentagon types, left-wing Trump haters, etc) opposed to the removal of 2,000 US troops from Syria do not have Americas best interests at heart.

At this point the reason for all US military and Military aid in the Arab world needs to be questioned.
