We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.

It’s been ordered.
The White House has ordered the Pentagon to pull U.S. troops from Syria immediately, a U.S. defense official confirmed to CBS News correspondent David Martin.
President Trump, who has long wanted to withdraw troops from the war-torn region, suggested on Twitter Wednesday that the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is defeated and therefore, there is no reason to be there.
“We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump presidency,” Mr. Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, without explicitly confirming an order to look to withdraw troops.
But the Pentagon was less definitive on that, and Mr. Trump’s own administration has suggested the battle in Syria isn’t over. Plus, key senators claimed they weren’t briefed on the decision ahead of time, prompting intense criticism even from some of the president’s strongest supporters.
“At this time, we continue to work by, with and through our partners in the region,” Pentagon spokesman Col. Rob Manning told reporters in a statement.
When reporters asked Deputy Secretary of Defense Pat Shanahan to comment on the reports of troops withdrawing from Syria, he responded, “I’m not going to make any comments.”
Yes, of course, the kiked out Pentagon.
I guess we’ll see who’s in charge of the military now then won’t we eh.
By all appearances, it appears that because Trump is being cockblocked on literally everything he attempts to do, he is exerting the one power that presumably cannot be questioned: commander-in-chief of the US military.
But, according to this reporting, the Pentagon appears to be questioning that power.
And the Jewish media certainly isn’t happy about this.
Not happy at all.

This would finally be some good news.
Planning is underway for a “full” and “rapid” withdrawal of US troops from Syria, a US defense official told CNN Wednesday.
The decision, which would be a reversal from previously stated US policy, was made by President Donald Trump, who has long signaled his desire to get out of Syria, the official added.
Even though the US will continue to maintain troops in Iraq with the capability of launching strikes into Syria, a US withdrawal of ground forces would fulfill a major goal of Syria, Iran and Russia and risks diminishing US influence in the region.
The US has about 2,000 troops on the ground in the country, where they are primarily training local forces to combat ISIS.
Yeah sure, CNN.
Maybe you can find a single person on the internet that believes that, but I doubt it.
Save that for your boomer TV network.
The US-backed and Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces have had some recent success against the terror group and are on the cusp of capturing the last major town held by ISIS east of the Euphrates.
Estimates vary as to how many ISIS fighters are left in Syria. In the town of Hajin, the terror group’s last redoubt, the coalition estimated some 2,000 ISIS fighters were present. But a Defense Department inspector general report put the number of ISIS members in Syria and Iraq as high as 30,000.
The US has forces in Iraq ready to launch attacks in Syria if necessary. In the last few weeks, the US-led coalition fighting ISIS has carried out hundreds of air and artillery strikes targeting ISIS in Syria. Some of those strikes were launched from neighboring Iraq, where the US has over 5,000 troops. Hundreds of US troops have also been training local forces at At Tanf in southern Syria, where Russia-backed pro-regime forces are seeking to oust the US presence.
The US-led coalition recently denied any change to the US presence in Syria.
“Any reports indicating a change in the US position with respect” to the US military presence in Syria “is false and designed to sow confusion and chaos,” the coalition said in a statement earlier this month.
Does this mean the tranny-lover Mad Pit Bull is finally going to be fired?
He was the one cockblocking the Syria pullout.
Trump has wanted to do this for two solid years, and every single time it was blocked.
I would expect that at some point in the next week there will be some kind of AIPAC-backed “terrorist” event in Syria. They can say it is Assad again, or they can even blame their own ISIS agents. It doesn’t really matter.
The Jews just want American soldiers in Syria, because if they leave, Russia, Assad, Hezbollah and Iran will clean the place up of whatever terrorists remain, and Syria will just be a normal country again.
Trump appears to generally never get anything done ever.
So I’m not going to hold my breath on this.
It would certainly be a good feeling for something good to happen, finally.
I sure hope so, because I can’t stay as drunk as I have been for the last two months indefinitely.
