Mattis Signs Order To Withdraw U.S. Forces From Syria: Report

US forces are in the outskirts of the Syrian town of Manbij

Outgoing Defense Secretary James Mattis have signed an executive order to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria on December 23, the CNN reported citing defense official.

The officials said that the order determines how and when the withdrawal of US forces from Syria will take place and declined to provide CNN with further details. However, the TV network claimed that the withdrawal will begin in the next several weeks and could take several weeks to finish.

“I just had a long and productive call with President Erdogan of Turkey. We discussed ISIS, our mutual involvement in Syria, and the slow and highly coordinated pullout of U.S. troops from the area. After many years they are coming home,” Trump said on Twitter earlier.

Mattis, who resigned after disagreeing with Trump on the withdraw from Syria, is set to leave his post by January 1, 2019. His deputy Patrick Shanahan will replace him as acting defense chief.

Few days ago, an U.S. official told the Reuters news agency that the time-frame for U.S. troop pullout from Syria is expected to be between 60 to 100 days. However, Mattis will likely try to delay the move as much as he could before leaving his post.

    What took him so long?
    “slow and highly coordinated pullout of U.S. troops “(c) – same way they were withdrawing from Saigon?

    • Zionism = EVIL

      The Americunts are devious and with their UK and French poodles will maintain some terrorist “special forces” to fan more conflict, but will fail as the headchoppers and faggot FSA know that they are finished and Syria will control all its territory. The only reason the SAA and Iranians are not wiping the FSA terrorists out is to save SAA casualties. The terrorists are done in Syria and every rational person knows that.

        But Americans are not rational.

        • Zionism = EVIL

          You are being too kind to the Americunt dumb fcuks. The dumbasses are enslaved to Zionist even though their shithole country is going to the Zionist swine and being bankrupted by endless wars for Zionism. Since 2001, fake so-called 911, the brainwashed morons have spend $15 TRILLION on lost wars and bankrupted their deadbeat economy as recession is coming with $24 TRILLION debt, 100 million on dwindling foodstamps and the only country where male life span is decreasing due to lack of access to healthcare. Yesterday in a PEW poll over 40% of the Americunts said that they want to the shithole:

          A third of natural-born Americans are thinking about packing up and living … 37 percent) to live abroad is the simple desire to live a better peaceful life. US ranked lower than every Latin American country in livability and happiness index.

            They are poorly educated people ruled by plutocrats.
            India is similar to America, and you get the same sort of bigotry.
            They can’t help being slaves, or even understand that they are slaves.
            I hate America, like I hate the Nazis that preceded them, but I don’t hate Germans or Americans.
            The free world needs to invade America, and free the poor enslaved people from their Zionist/Nazi masters.
            Millions of Americans will die, but as a famous American Jew(Madeleine Albright) once said, the price will be worth it.

          • Brother Ma

            Yes ,but she said it about Serbs,didn’t she? Not her precious Americunts.

          • Sinbad2

            Actually she said it about killing half a million Iraqi children.

          • Brother Ma

            True. My mistake.Hang the witch!

            i feel the same way, i wonder how happy i would be living in a different country

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Even poodle Canada is slightly better as it has universal health care to some extent. Over a million Americunts have escaped to the frozen stolen Canuck tundra since the Vietnam defeat. But Canada is as ignorant and known as the smiling face of racism.

    ” However, Mattis will likely try to stretch the withdraw as much as he could before leaving his post.”
    And now he HAS to leave by Jan 1. This is a good way to speed up the process !!

    • Zionism = EVIL

      But I have to admit that Mattis the mumbling redneck loser is uglier than an average Americunt pig with bulging eyes and laughable accent :)

      • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

        lol true, good riddance!

  • Sinbad2

    OK he has done his duty, now lets hope he does the honourable thing and puts his pistol in his mouth.

    I’ll bet his secret underage male lover was there holding his hand for comfort when he forced himself to sign it, his hand would have been trembling in anguish, and the tears would have been rolling down his cheeks getting the paperwork wet and making the ink blotch as he was trying to sign it, I’ll have to check out a copy of the document so I can see just where his tears fell. All the hard work he and all his sinister weirdo mates have been up to since 2003 is slowly being unravelled, Trump and Putin are actually winning the war, the war the SINISTER weirdos thought they could never lose.
    I wonder what senator John McCain thinks of all this, and no I don’t mean while he’s in heaven or more likely hell, after his supposed death by cancer on the operating table. I mean the one that’s living his/her double life as a transgender woman right now, after faking his death on the operating table. People claimed he was a NEOCON and Zionist but that’s because most people are stupid, I recognized him for what he really was, the greatest General the rainbow warriors ever had, another Alexander the Great or Julius Caesar, but he’s retired now to enjoy life as a woman, a just reward for his many efforts.
    Take them all down one by one, no more New World Order, the rats are leaving their sinking ship before they get trapped on it, don’t let them leave, burn them on the ship before they get off, all of them.

      NWO is already here. You just havent discovered it yet………………………….LOL.

      • Willing Conscience (The Truths

        For 10,000 years humans of every different ethnic group bar none have been doing the same thing they always have, bringing up children in the traditional ways, they taught little boys how to become men and take on the roles that suited us, and they taught little girls how to become women and take on the roles that suited them, and we’ve all prospered by that cultural convention all humans USED to adhere to.
        Now little boys and girls have to grow up learning how to be both a man and a woman, as if it wasn’t hard enough learning how to be just one, no wonder our kids are committing suicide at rates that are just about unsustainable for human survival.
        I know the New World Order is here already, it’s been here ever since the LGBTQI movement took over most of the western world 50 years ago, but you obviously still blame the Jews, the NEOCONS and whoever else you think is responsible, but I know what the NWO is better than anyone, I’m the only person I know that points the finger at the right people.
        Men now wear dresses and put on lipstick, they kiss in public and bring up families together, that is the New World Order, when I watch either ABC or SBS in Australia I mostly only ever get programmes promoting homosexual lifestyles, traditional family values now make up less than 10% of the lifestyle programming, the other 90% is devoted to promotion of a homosexual lifestyle.
        Only the blind, stupid, or those that are willingly acceptable of the change in human culture don’t see the NWO is already here.
        All roads lead to Rome, and if you want to find the capitol because you don’t know where it is, just follow the path most people are taking, you may make a few wrong turns on the way, but you’ll ALWAYS eventually reach the capitol. Follow every path of all the people you blame most for bringing about the NWO, and I’ll bet every single one of them heads to the LGBTQI Capitol very frequently.

      Haha!

      Mambij also wants the syrian government there.

    • Brother Ma

      English translation would be good but nice map.

  • AJ

    At least this withdrawal will force the more moderate elements like the Kurds to make a deal with Assad or face being wiped out by the Turks. Its a good chance for Assad to recover those oil fields

  • Tommy Jensen

    Mattis is sabotaging Trump´s decision, because he has more experience than Trump in how to make Fallulah massacres to finish off Assad for Israel´s freedom.

    Trump has NO experience in how you glue yourself into a country and suck it dry for blood.

    Mattis is sabotaging the decision for Israel and will continue to work for Israel together with our allies in M16, Mossad, DRM, CIA no matter how hard Trump kicks him Mattis and jeopardizes Israel.

    Yankee go home!!
