“President Trump has directed the Pentagon to come up with a plan to withdraw nearly half of the more than 14,000 troops deployed to Afghanistan, U.S. officials said Thursday, a move that many of Trump’s senior advisers and military officials have warned will plunge the country further into chaos.
The order comes on the heels of Trump’s announcement that he will be withdrawing all 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria, a surprise decision that the president made against the counsel of his top advisers and without warning any of the allies who have fought alongside American forces in the battle there against the Islamic State.”

How the hell else are we going to leave? I keep hearing now is not the time. That we are endangering other lives. But considering how many lives we’ve killed already I wonder if they are really being disingenuous? I guess we will find out.

Out of the blue, Cheeto has the sudden urge to take troops out of both Syria AND Afghanistan?
Well unless three ghosts showed up in the middle of the night to visit him like old Ebeneezer Scrooge, it’s not likely that he decided to suddenly put an end to US imperialism in the Middle East.
So I’m guessing he’s only taking the troops out of Afghanistan & Syria so he can have them meetup with each other somewhere in the middle. And y’all know what that means.
Not coincidentally, NuttyYahoo is trying to draw Iran into his annual (seems like it anyway) planned assault on Lebanon for no goddamned good reason. I have this feeling that he and Cheeto are both planning to get out of their respective legal troubles by starting World War III.

The Americans should have learned from British and Russian experiences there.
The Pentagon watchdog’s report further said the local Taliban — which has been the main target of the war on terror — “now controls more territory than at any time since 2001.”
Only 55.5 percent of Afghan districts remain under the control or influence of the Kabul government, the lowest such figure since SIGAR began tracking district control in November 2015, according to the report.

That is something I can get behind.
If he actually pulls out of Syria, and just declare the win already and head out, I think that would be a great thing.
We really need to get out of as many military interventions that we are currently in.

… can object to a withdrawal like this?
I agree the sudden move to withdraw from both Syria and Afghanistan seems odd, but even if it’s the first step in something worse, withdrawal is still withdrawal.
It’s about frickin’ time.
