American forces are finally leaving Syria after the Turks invaded areas in Northern Syria controlled by Kurds.
The U.S. is “preparing to evacuate” about 1,000 U.S. troops from northern Syria “as safely and quickly as possible,” Defense Secretary Mark Esper told “Face the Nation” in an interview airing Sunday.
The move comes a week after President Trump announced the repositioning of several dozen American troops embedded with Kurdish forces in northern Syria, opening the door for a Turkish offensive against the Syrian Defense Forces (SDF), the main U.S. allies in the fight against ISIS.
“In the last 24 hours, we learned that [the Turks] likely intend to extend their attack further south than originally planned, and to the west,” Esper said. “We also have learned in the last 24 hours that the … SDF are looking to cut a deal, if you will, with the Syrians and the Russians to counterattack against the Turks in the north.”
Esper told “Face the Nation” the troops remaining in the country were caught between Turkish forces and the SDF. According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 internally displaced people are fleeing the violence.
“And so we find ourselves, we have American forces likely caught between two opposing advancing armies, and it’s a very untenable situation,” Esper said. “So I spoke with the president last night, after discussions with the rest of the national security team, and he directed that we begin a deliberate withdrawal of forces from northern Syria.”
There are all sorts of shills in the Jewish media whining about this move by the orange man. They are literally trying to sell the American people on this insane idea that it is the duty of the American government to protect the Kurds from Turkey. This despite the fact that Turkey is a member of NATO and the Turks and Kurds have been fighting one another for centuries.
There is zero benefit for American forces being in Syria.
As I’ve said before, if the Jews are so fond of the Kurds, why isn’t Israel volunteering to spill Jewish blood on their behalf? As always, these kikes are trying to swindle the goyim to fight battles for them.
