    This is our US troops new home. At least one of them in the Middle East. I also suspect that ISIS will find a few new homes as well.

    KABUL, Afghanistan — While President Trump insists he’s bringing home Americans from “endless wars” in the Mideast, his Pentagon chief says all U.S. troops leaving Syria will go to western Iraq and the American military will continue operations against the Islamic State group.

    They aren’t coming home and the United States isn’t leaving the turbulent Middle East, according to current plans outlined by U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper before he arrived in Afghanistan on Sunday. The fight in Syria against IS, once spearheaded by American allied Syrian Kurds who have been cast aside by Trump, will be undertaken by U.S. forces, possibly from neighboring Iraq.

      Trump said US troops in SA cause they pay. Mercenary army of the petrodollar empire corrupt to the bone.

      Saudis can’t have functional army that would make them feel safe from Iran, cause they are even more afraid of army getting rid of the magnificently corrupt royal clan. So they buy a corrupt empire. Seems best hope to bring troops home from there is Putin brokering a deal between SA and Iran to end their decades long cold war. He’s got lots of strings to pull now.

    This is no surprise. No matter what the fake Trumpenleft says, Trump is not for peace. Trump is for Trump and no one else.

      Yeah, all those ‘leftists’ who are screaming to the rafters that Trump is for peace, need to just hush and go away.

    On the upside to Trump’s ordered departure, US troops will transport splattered veggies on military equipment heading to Iraq.

    Iraq says these troops can pass, not stay in Iraq.
