The US will work with allies to “expel every last Iranian boot” from Syria, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says.
Mr Pompeo warned there would be no US reconstruction aid for areas controlled by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad until Iran and its proxies had left.
He also criticised ex-President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy, saying he had made “dire misjudgements”.
Mr Pompeo was speaking in Cairo three weeks after President Donald Trump said US troops were pulling out of Syria.

Or else what?
I’m pretty sure that countries in the Eastern Hemisphere has the West’s number by now. Pompeo bloviating isn’t a good look for him.

Pompeo’s like a pompous Roman emissary from the Emperor Honorius telling the Visigoths to leave Italy at once or else!

Because Syria is clearly the property of the United States. Some people just don’t get that.
