      A senior member of the Saudi royal family has warned against a US troop withdrawal from Syria.

      Prince Turki al-Faisal told the BBC the action would have a negative impact, further entrenching Iran, Russia and the rule of President Bashar al-Assad.

      US President Donald Trump announced in December that it was time to bring US troops home from Syria.

      Prince Turki was speaking just before US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo began a visit to Riyadh.

      Well that settles it. We should follow the advice of the extremists in Saudi Arabia.

      How about we pull our military and military aid out of the middle east entirely for the sake of equality and to save money?

      And, we could give the idle troops something useful to do for a change that doesn’t involve murder.   We could call them into Military Conservation Corps, give them snappy uniforms, and have them clear underbrush from forests, restore wetlands, build dikes, etc.  And, give them some nice medals for doing a good job.
