President Trump has given the order to withdraw all U.S soldiers from Syria.
President Trump believes that America has no more business in Syria. This is based off his idea that Isis is no longer a threat to the United States. In a tweet, Wednesday, President Trump said:
“We have defeated ISIS in Syria, my only reason for being there during the Trump Presidency.”
According to Trump, with Isis beaten, America has no more reason to keep troops in Syria. However, the idea that Isis is gone is not supported by all of Washington. A senior staff member of the Trump administration told CNN:
“It’s a mistake of colossal proportions and the President fails to see how it will endanger our country.”
Trump’s supporters and critics both seem to agree that this is not a good strategy. At the end of the day, this is a lose/lose situation. If American troops leave the area, then the violence will only continue. However, if the American government stays in the area, it will only keep destroying the country, as it has done the Middle East for decades. What Syrians truly need are the resources to rebuild their country and to be left alone by Western nations.
