    Trump is going to bring back more US military until there is enough savings to pay for a wall.
    NATO and specifically Turkey Incirlik first.

    Even though the “military industrial complex” sounds a bit conspiratorial, the truth is that Military spending greatly benefits the DC establishment. Democrats tend to be against defense spending but they still benefit from it either way.

    If POTUS doesn’t get the wall put into his budget explicitly then it looks like he’s made a play here to redirect spending from Syria to the US southern border.

    Bravo.

    Congress can take their politics and shove it.

      Correction, the Democrat Party only opposes Military funds not spent in their congressional districts.

        Eisenhower called Preventive War an invention of Hitler, so he was obviously a no action weak old fool who never even once got us into a war …. only got us out of them … … the complete wrong direction … … Eisenhower the Sissy Boy that is, not Hitler the Warrior … .. and probably could not get past private in the modern Army today, as everyone now knows Preventive War leads to peace, a.k.a attacking first will make everyone safer, just ask some older Japanese if you don’t believe me.

        Don’t forget that Eisenhower included universities in his pathology matrix. Ike rightly saw the emerging sycophant subculture of university and school administrators, syndicate unionism and educrat cronyism as a parasitic threat to our nation’s health, vitality and the wellbeing of our major institutions.

        One only look at the perverse ratio of administrators to professors to see the magnitude of damage done; the collapse of scholarship, intellectual rigor and its usurpation by academic poseurs and sycophant insiders. It’s a weird spin on a 21st Century supremacist cult.

        They hate Trump and all who do not.

        Fanatically.

      Are there any decent Congressmen alive today? The RINOs have totally betrayed Americans, the Democrats are trying to destroy America, and there is a deafening silence from ALL Republicans, especially those who claim to be the “Freedom Caucus” or supporters of Trump. I am sickened by the amount of criminal activity that goes unpunished. IMHO, unless Trump unmasks the traitors and they are punished, the country is finished.

    In scanning the comments here, I can not help but detect a building majority, maybe even a YUGE one, for finally leaving the Garden of Eden of Afghanistan. Will no one speak up anymore to defend our brilliant generals who have keep us there for 17 wonderful years ? I was catching Hell just a few days ago for even questioning their genius. Of course, not as much as I was 5 years ago, which wasn’t as much as I was 10 years ago, which wasn’t as much as I was 15 years ago.

    One other interesting thing the President can say, as a reminder to war mongers.

    Gee, tell me again about the meaning of the Yemen vote….

    He is going to pull back except for assistance and training missions, which Special Forces, Drones, Cruise Missiles and CIA can conduct without war powers votes.

    A bipartisan group of senators sent a letter to President Trump on Wednesday asking him to reconsider his decision to begin withdrawing troops from Syria.

    In the letter, Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Angus King (I-Maine), Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), expressed concern that withdrawing U.S. troops from Syria would “renew and embolden” ISIS’s efforts in the region.

    Years ago now, Tommy Franks said that Doug Feith was the dumbest f-ing man on the planet. That’s what he said. I read his book. I can almost hear Tommy now saying, “I knew Doug Feith, Doug Feith was no friend of mine, and Donald Trump is definitely no Doug Feith”.

    The deep state has been playing in Russia’s backyard.. So Russia is going to play in our backyard.. See how that works..

    Instead of missiles in Cuba, we now have nuclear bombers visiting Venezuela on the other side of Cuba across the Gulf of Mexico..

    The Deep State does have a Military Force.. It’s called NATO.. And whose base of operations are in Belgium.. Which happens to be the operations base of the E,U,..

    NATO is becoming a threat to the United States itself..

    CCR Soldier Boy, Circa 2016:

    Just about 15 years ago I set out on the Afghanistan road
    Seekin’ my fame and glory, lookin’ to turn the Mullah’s Hemorrhoid into a pot of gold
    Well, things got bad, and things got worse, I guess you will know the tune
    Oh ! lord, stuck in Afghanistan again

    Flew in yet again on a big plane, I hope I’ll be in one piece flyin out when I go.
    I was yet again just passin’ through, must now be yet another 8 tours or more.
    Running out of time and patience [Not to complain but whatever the hell happened to my youth?!”], looks like they took still more of my friends.
    Oh ! lord, Im stuck in Afghanistan yet again.

    The Hope and Change man, Obama, in the White House said yet again I was on my way.
    Somewhere I lost his connection, he ran out of words to say.
    I came into Kabul, yet another one year stand, looks like the plans fell through yet again
    Oh ! lord, stuck in Afghanistan yet again.

    Mmmm…
    If I only had a woman [“Hey Jack, do you remember what a woman is?”], for evry Afghanistan tour Ive done.
    And evry time Ive had to fight while the generals sat back home empowering Islam and power drunk.
    You know, Id like to catch the next plane back to where Im from.
    Oh ! lord, Im stuck in Afghanistan yet again.
    Oh ! lord, Im stuck in Afghanistan yet again.

    I’ve waited all my life for a President that cared about our people. It’s been so long since a President really cared about the value of an American life.

    This time war was…..Not on a whim. Not political malfeasance. Not for nefarious financial gain. Not based on filthy lies.

    This was to end ISIS.

    The mission had a beginning and an end.

    Amen.

    God Bless President Trump. God Bless America.

      No Donna, Obama didn’t send the troops to Syria to fight ISIS but rather to install another Islamic Regime in the Middle East. Obama may or may not have been a Muslim, but he certainly was a Muslim sympathizer.

    I hope the Troops’ chant “Bye Felicia” as they fly out of that Islamic hello hole. Next Afghanistan, let them wallow in the seventh century. I find it very amusing watching the slime stream media go mad because Trump is not doing the chosen war monger’s Obama’s bidding. It’s funny watching people who called Bush a war monger demand Trump become one.

    Why must our ground troops be deployed to long term fighting in foreign countries all over the world? With our superior air power including drones, stealth bombers, cruise missiles and extremely fast fighter jets, we can destroy any accumulation of enemy combatants and let the locals do the grunt work mopping up.
    We’ve had ground troops in Afghanistan for more than 16 years now with nothing substantial to show for it than 2,400 dead U.S. Servicemen. That’s insane, IMO.

    Listening to a Q & A with Ambassador Kurt Volker today, there may be another reason for this withdrawal from Syria, other than the obvious. Ukraine. Just a hunch, but it would seem there might be a bit of diplomacy going on involving Turkey, Russia, and the U.S., to resolve the Ukrainian problem as well as Syria.
    We shall see.

    As Sundance notes, withdrawing U.S. troops from Afghanistan and Syria concedes nothing to Iran’s mullah-dullahs, Putin’s spetsnaz in Damascus, Riyadh’s Wahabi terrorists.

    As should be obvious by now, Trump wins by matching true perceptions to reality. Since Afghans’ Taliban insurgents threaten Pakistan, let Islamabad handle ’em with India and China standing by; since Russia and Turkey roil Araby in Syria, let MBS address that issue from Riyadh. As for Iran, beloved of EU Central Banks plus Franco-German dirigistes, U.S. sanctions serve regional as well as North Atlantic purposes.

    In sum: Why squander American resources, suffer unwonted casualties, in irresolvable conflicts which never redound to U.S. interests? In this, as in his global trade and Asia-North Korea policies, Trump dedicates his Administration to ordinary peoples’ peace-and-prosperity as a benign American investment, not a military/industrial enterprise at vast expense.

    On due consideration, the only comparable Presidents that come to mind are Teddy Roosevelt and Harry Truman– by no coincidence, both treated with contempt by reigning clerisies (Roosevelt as “that damn cowboy”, Truman as a failed haberdasher “kicked upstairs” by Missouri’s thieving Pendergast Machine). Post 2020, we only hope that Trump to age 78 (!) cements his legacy in ways Reagan never could. Meantime, through thick-and-thin we wish him well.
