A bipartisan group of lawmakers including Rand Paul, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar sent a letter to President Donald Trump on Wednesday.

The letter praised the president's December announcement that the US would begin to withdraw US troops from Syria.
"We believe that the stated intention of withdrawing our forces is appropriate, and we look forward to the orderly return of our service members from this theater of conflict," the letter said.


The bipartisan letter praised Trump's decision to remove troops, urged the president to follow through on his original announcement within the next six months, and expressed hope that the decision would be a model for ending US involvement in other conflicts."

Promises made, promises kept. The President can be trusted to fulfill his promises.

Meanwhile, let's see how Democrats are doing on the consistency factor:

"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Trump decision isn’t about drawing down US military involvement at all.

Remember that earlier this year, Trump VETOED Congress’ attempt to end US involvement in the Yemen War.

He has significant personal financial conflicts of interest in this situation, among other concerns.

he didn't withdraw from Syria, just abandoned the allies... w/ no notice

He has repeatedly stated that he wants to get ground troops out of Syria...how you construe that as "no notice" is beyond me.

Also, Turkey is a six decade-long de jure ally, unlike the Kurds...just saying.

Not the first time the US abandons the Kurds. The US did it during the 1st Gulf war also. They encouraged the Kurds to rise up against Saddam Hussein. The Kurds who thought that they now had the backing of the US to finally get rid of Saddam, did so. But then the US said... nah fuck it. We are getting out of here. And then Saddam started to punish and kill Kurds, as he had done earlier.

Now history seems to be repeating itself. Kurds eagerly helps the US and the West to fight tyrants and terrorists. And then the US yet again turns their back on them. Erdogan is not a Saddam, but Kurds will die during this offensive.

Why the fuck is it our responsibility to protect the Kurds? They arent being wiped out. They lived in Syria before the war. They arent the Yazidi they got wiped out by ISIS under Obama.

@ mt:

"okay man you do you it's kinda scary how detached you are."

Why so detached, psycho?

I dont think that comments are equivalent but to be fair I dont remember what you posted about. So I could be wrong.

Okay, apparantly, the Kurds didn’t help the US in Normandie.

“President Trump on Middle East wars on Monday: “I campaigned on the fact that I was going to bring our soldiers home and bring them home as quickly as possible,”

WASHINGTON, Oct 11 (Reuters) - The United States is planning to send a large number of additional forces to Saudi Arabia following the Sept. 14 attack on its oil facilities, which Washington and Riyadh have blamed on Iran, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters on Friday

and Trump told his rally idiots that we no longer have troops in Syria (which is false, as you might expect if you're familiar with Trump comments)

also, our troops in Saudi Arabia is what pissed off Bin Laden... (it was not 'our freedom')... for what that's worth

If we're going by that standard, how pissed off do you think OBL would be over the 18-year-long military occupation of Afghanistan?

Also, feel free to tell me when you're willing to pay $5/gallon at the gas pump. Until then, STFU about protecting the oil fields.

Except for the fact that we have enough oil ourselves, that it wouldn't affect the prices of gas. But hey, let's just outright ignore the contradictions and hypocrisy of Trump's actions all because of your hard on for him. "STFU!"

Eat a dick.

14k more US troops to Middle East in the past 5 months, thats all

"...Combined with other recent deployments, about 3,000 personnel are being sent or having their missions extended in the Mideast, according to the Pentagon. Since May, an additional 14,000 U.S. personnel are in the region, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said Friday"
