Trump Reaffirms His Decision To Withdraw Troops From Syria

U.S. president Donald Trump greets supporters during a campaign rally at Four Seasons Arena on July 5, 2018 in Great Falls, Montana. President Trump held a campaign style ‘Make America Great Again’ rally in Great Falls, Montana with thousands in attendance.

U.S. President Donald Trump reaffirmed his decision to withdraw all American forces from Syrian once again and blamed previous administrations for what he called “endless wars” in the Middle East.

“I inherited a total mess in Syria and Afghanistan, the endless wars of unlimited spending and death. During my campaign I said, very strongly, that these wars must finally end. We spend $50 Billion a year in Afghanistan and have hit them so hard that we are now talking peace after 18 long years,” Trump tweeted on February 1.

Trump also claimed that his administration will soon “destroyed 100% of the Caliphate” in Syria and vowed to “watching them closely” after the upcoming withdrawal.

“It is now time to start coming home and, after many years, spending our money wisely. Certain people must get smart!” the President added.

Trump’s remarks were not a surprise, as it became clear that the he is determined to withdraw from Syria, despite the backlash from the mainstream media and even senior officials in his administration.

With the withdrawal of U.S. troops almost confirmed, Washington is now reportedly working to form a new coalition led by the UK, France and Australia. The new coalition is supposed to establish a safe-zone in northeastern Syria. However, Washington’s partners have not agreed on the plan yet and Turkey will likely oppose it.

    Trump is either totally disconnected with the decisions from the Pentagon and/or Israel or he simply believes he has authority to make such decisions. Anyway:

    Blah blah, bullshit blah as usual

  • FlorianGeyer

    “I inherited a total mess in Syria and Afghanistan, the endless wars of unlimited spending and death.”

    Trump appears to needs his troops who are experienced with fermenting death and destruction to be deployed in South America now .

    • AM Hants

      He wants them everywhere, including sending 600 back to Syria. No doubt, in time for the false flag the White Helmets are planning, over in a hospital in Idlib. Wonder if the US troops will be delivering the CWs?

      Just in time for when he walks away from the INF Treaty, this weekend.

      Or am I being cynical, to expect them to try and rig some chaotic ‘false flag’?

      • FlorianGeyer

        I would always say that you are cynically realistic as I think I am :)

        Hubris, power and delusion have always been a cause of misery and death.

        This will not end until the US suffers a defeat to large that events smother the ‘Exceptional nation’. This could be a debt implosion, Large nuclear explosions, Devastating Natural disasters or a Brutal civil war.

        • George King

          I think anyone of the first three would trigger the fourth, “Brutal civil war”. So far indications of the Armed Forces are with Elected President Maduro and Brazil’s Armed Forces will not participate in another US intervention into South America.

      • Carne João Pasta

        I was reading it was 180 days until they officially exit the treaty.

        • Jens Holm

          Thats right. After that anybody in the whole world can produce that very cheep missiles as they wish.

          • Concrete Mike

            Some countries dont follow any agreements anyways so why bother. Your shlomo bosses are a perfect example

  • Enkidu

    JUST GET OUT FOR GOOD FUCKING SHABBOS PIECE OF SHIT

  • Uwe

    We spend $50 Billion a year in Afghanistan and have hit them so hard as we are completely broke right now. We have to go to loot Venezuela to recover!

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      you dont know very well what you saying as you know only what you spend not what you make. The trade from opium is over 400 billion a year in a slow year. Beside your war industry needs to make her bread and butter.

      • Jesus

        What is the bread and butter of US MIC for the war effort in Afghanistan? Crums?
        They would rather sell Patriot and F35 junk.

        • Sinbad2

          The consumables bring in more money long term than a plane. Thousands of bombs at 40 grand a piece?
          The US went bankrupt dropping bombs on Vietnam, but they still have a lot of the planes that dropped the bombs.

          The food supplies are big money as is fuel and wages.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          yes well patriots are not very hot sellers and F35 ……… well think and you understand what I am saying if you can not figure it out all you have to do is see where they started wars or brewing one to happen and see what the war industry supplies there, on daily bases that is their bread and butter.

      • Jens Holm

        As if You dont understand we dont understand, we use it ourselves.

        You also dont see, the production and use unfortunatly is growing many places in the world. Very infected to claim this onsided critisism.

        We also hear again and again the Kurds do it. Well, they are not. Kurds in the world and inclusive this are very small ones.

        No wonder people use opium, when they read as You write about it all the time.

        • Concrete Mike

          Bork bork.

          Before afghan invasion poppy production was nearly zero, you know this. Prescription opioid pills did not exist until after afghan invasion .

          You know damn well the barzani kurds are the preferred drug smugglers in the area. Wich then goes to albania/kosovo and then floods europe with drugs.

          Werr so stupid in the west we think a pill can solve health problems because of our shitty lifestyle. Here take this painkiller you dont really need. 3 months later your a drugged out junkie.

          Its pretty obvious by now, that criminal elements that control the drug trade also control governments, finance , industry, definitly the IT sector.

          Play all the crass identity politics you want, we know the endgame is to.make the rich richer.

          • Jens Holm

            Bork bork Youself.

            Thre are tons of rapoports for, that many more parts of the world produce drugs as plants as well as the chemical ones has raised.

            So You unfortunatly get the the whole picture in the mos narrowminded possible way in themost infame and infame way, there is. fx

      Either you have freedom and empty pockets, or you have $ on your account with terrorists bombing your bathroom. You cant have both!

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        especially when they are on diet, of beans and chili.

        • AM Hants

          Explosive formula.

        • Jens Holm

          The Venezuala mode is typical seen all over the world. They nationalize bad systems producing even some and have no tool to take over.

          Well seen fx in Ukraine and many more parts in USSR after WW1. Millions were starved to death by that.

          Changes for vitals only can be replaced a little by little. How can You expect production is improved, when You confiscate from the ones, which know about it.

          Cuba is same thing. Many hektars are not used, because the communist production methods are as unproductive as they can, because there is no knowledge and no incitaments.

        • gustavo

          However, in Idlib Putin do not want to Erdgoan to be upset. Bad news for Syria.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            This been obvious for a very long time now actually since he close the deal to start building the gas pipe line in turkey. I comment many times about it and is getting very tiring repeating ones self. Comments dont change reality.

      • AM Hants

        The elite get both. They hold onto the $, whilst the people, who vote them in, or their loyal oligarchs, get the terrorists bombing their bathrooms. Now what did President Putin have to say about cloakroom terrorists?

        “We are going to pursue terrorists everywhere. If they are in the airport, we will pursue them in the airport. And if we capture them in the toilet, then we will waste them in the outhouse. … The issue has been resolved once and for all,” Vladimir Putin, President of Russia

        How about no wars and just a good economy? Can’t be done?

    • AM Hants

      It is all about the oil. However, they have not given up with Syria, hence the Trump ‘double speak’ has sent 600 more US Forces to Syria.

      • Carne João Pasta

        The gold might be more valuable to the empire, but oil is definitely one of the major factors.

        • Jens Holm

          Not from Syria at all. Which way can it even leave the contry = none.

      • Jens Holm

        Syrian oil and gas are too small to fight about.

        You also forget, the oil money are after it has left the region. We upgrade oil to all kinds of product and benefit many 1000% in stead of some money here and there for raw materials only.

        I have seen You again and again. Believing some local oil and gas has anything to do with the war in Syria is far out.

        You even write it even it cant be transportet out and anybody else can see that. Wher can it go – air,zipfiles – barrels by eufrat or what ?

        Answer – no, just babling non sense.

        • Concrete Mike

          Your right syria is not about oil, its banks and dirty politics. You know this, its not on your script but you know it in your heart.

      Mad Rat Bolton and his self proclaimed emperor of the snake oil Guaidó are not able to loot anything in Venezuela.

    • gustavo

      USA control drug all over the World (50 billions business), control internet (5 billions), half control of computer-phone market (10 billions), weapons sell (150 billions), oil production (50 billions). As you can see, war is necessary for USA economy to keep it alive, that is the reason USA is always involve in s war against whatever (there is always an excuse that north-american people can believe).

      She is a typical liberal democrat. Hypocrite and lies.

    • AM Hants

      She does not have to wait that long, if Russia and China follow the US and decide that she is the President of the US. Just like the US have decided some runt, with few votes, is now the President of Venezuela. How much did they invest in Guaido?

      If she was not so dangerous, it would be worth it for pure comedy value. How will the Dems spin that one?

    • Carne João Pasta

      Right, because the policies and decisions over the past several decades of that sacred “national security establishment” has benefited the American people in so many ways.

  • Tommy Jensen

    Those $50 billion is a cheap price to pay for freedom and our Western values.
    We are figthing terror and the terror is still there and terror will still be there, unless we do something about it.
    Trump should ask himself whether he wants a new 9/11 on US soil after we leave?? Done by lunatic Osama terrorists in Afghanistan, or he wants freedom in the United States?? Answer Trump!

    • AM Hants

      Why was Bush dining with the Bin Laden family, who were the partners in the family business, Carlyle Group, the night before 9/11?

    • H Eccles

      No, instead Trump should ask… why were five Israelis dancing and high-fiving as the towers were coming down?

    • Lena Jones

      If it’s so “cheap” to you then you and your mama can go ahead and pay for it.

    Trump ‘Double Speak’, this is what he means by withdrawal:

    BREAKING: 600+ U.S Troops Arrive In Syria… https://www.fort-russ.com/2019/01/breaking-600-u-s-troops-arrive-in-syria/

    Wonder if they will be delivering the CWs to the White Helmets, which they are hoping to use is the coming hospital ‘false flag’, no doubt just before the State of the Nation speech, Trump is due to deliver.

    With the Venezuela coup failing, so many nations need to divert the media headlines, including those who fund the White Helmets. Not forgetting the up and coming Uklraine elections.

  • Luke Hemmming

    That first paragraph quoted Trump complaining that he inherited endless wars from previous administrations including Obama and Bush. Wow what a revelation. Fucking A!! But your not much better Trump. You want to start shit in South America now. Actually skip that last comment. Trump along with all the previous presidents back to but not including JFK are nothing but sock puppets for the dual citizen Zionist controllers that are driving the US and the rest of the world into annihilation. You may have the power and the resources but we are aware of you all and we aren’t going anywhere if we can stop this.

    • Lena Jones

      The war against Venezuela is another war for israel: because Maduro (and
      Chavez before him) is a staunch and vocal supporter of the
      Palestinians. Just take a look at who’s been assigned to work the
      Venezuela file: jew after jew after jew name.

      • Sinbad2

        Stop blaming the Jews for everything, no Americun President has got a second term without a war.

        Jews want your money, Americuns want your blood and your money.

        • Lena Jones

          STFU with your snowflaking!

          Plenty of proof that too many wars for israel have already cost us, and now they spring this Venezuela ‘coup and loot’, directed by the jew neocon terrorist Eliot Abrams!

          Show me where the jews ARE NOT warmongering in conflict zones, old and new and I’ll eat my shorts.

          WAKE UP ALREADY sleepy head!

          • Sinbad2

            So what did the Jews get out of Korea and Vietnam?
            What did the Jews get out of Grenada?

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            you can not reason with one who not only brainwashing itself but also does it in a self conscious act. Fanatical people are also the most stupid broken records of the bunch.

          • Lena Jones

            Of course you would step in from the shadows and attempt a scumbag stab at me you little creep!

            LOL! I’ll fuck you over a third time if you so wish asshole!

            Sticking to the facts does NOT make one a “fanatic”, it makes one awake, and sensible to danger. Your problem here (again) is the messenger and NOT the message. That’s why bullies like you deserve to be kicked in the nuts repeatedly till they ‘cry uncle’.

            Ahh, Lena your my kind of woman.

            Who the fuck do you think loans out money to the US to carry on these wars? And if it’s NOT in the interest of them ‘bankers’ and their chosenite nation, then why would they give out these loans for mass murder? And you mention korea and Vietnam? Well, it used to be that you could pick up official documents thru google on how israel used the Vietnam war, prolonging it as a distraction away from its war crimes against the Arabs, but google today has buried this info deep in cyberspace – and guess by whose orders?!

            If you think that the US versus Granada was an actual war, then you don’t understand the definition of war. The US military itself avoids the topic cuz their victory there was tantamount to a professional athlete competing against an armless cripple. No glory for the victor there. And yes, I grant you this was one ‘bar fight’ that israel was not involved in.

            Nevertheless, I find your attempt at censorship vexing, especially that you’re obviously avoiding ALL the wars that the US has undertaken in the middle east since the mid 70’s – too numerous to mention here. Pulling up abstracted wars from the past to avoid talking about the present jew-mongered wars is somewhat sly of you.

            Now back to the point: SHOW ME THE NAME OF THE US GENTILE WHO HAS BEEN ASSIGNED THE MANAGEMENT OF THE VENEZUELA FILE OR STFU!

          • Sinbad2

            “Who the fuck do you think loans out money to the US to carry on these wars?”

            That aside, the dubious Federal Reserve has documented your linked document with a proviso/disclaimer at bottom of your linked page lol.

            Stop dancing around like a spinless snake and admit that at least it is HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS that Eliot Abrams has been given the Venezuela file: Venezuela being a vocal and bitter enemy of israel and Eliot being a robust mossad asset.

            (Stunning that you and that Greek know-it-all lover of censorship Promitheas blahblah cannot connect the dots on this issue!).

            Why don’t you also go research who paid for both world wars and it just might open up your mind to the bigger ‘jew’ picture.

          • Jens Holm

            So who loans money to USA and who gives USA loans. You seemes never to have heard about systems like IMF and what Western(world) economics are.

            All seemes reduced to Maduro can spend the last assets of Veneuzula like the as of and old already slaghtered cow by Chavez.

            Who do you think runs the USA? Who maintains the jews and from where do they get “help”? Who is the biggest ‘fan’ of israhell? From what I gather the profits of american wars are not improving the lives of americans.

          • Sinbad2

            But you didn’t answer the question, what financial gain did Jews get out of the US invasion and occupation of Vietnam?

          • 1691

            Ever since the state of israhell was conceived in 1947 it has been parasiting on funds from Germany and USA. The profits from all wars that usa has started have been channeled to israhell. You know it, we know it,the whole world knows it.
            “Since the 1970s, Israel has received military aid from the United States, as well as economic assistance in the form of loan guarantees.”
            “Holocaust Reparations Germany to Pay 772 Million Euros to Survivors. The German government has committed to pay nearly 800 million euros for the care of elderly Holocaust survivors as a result of negotiations in Israel between Berlin and a fund for Jewish victims of Nazi aggression.May 29, 2013”

            you should take off the black glasses and look around you and stop having a one track mind. You are a typical example of one brainwashing its own self. None argue zionists are the scum of the earth but you are over rating them. Especially the stooges living in israel that are anything but expendable. You confuse the excuse with the reason, things happen.

          • Lena Jones

            Explain the appointment of the jewish neocon terrorist Eliot Abrams to Venezuela’s ‘regime change’ file?

            Also, provide me with just one single official mission where Eliot Abrams actually served the US and not israel.

            Yeah, well you won’t find it. Eliot Abrams is a notorious israel-firster terrorist traitor.

            This is NOT “overrating” jewish warmongering. This is acknowledging it.

          • Sinbad2

            I don’t think anybody could say that the Jewish movement is good, they have been cu*ts for thousands of years.
            BUT the USA is just as bad, actually much worse.

          • Lena Jones

            The US is run by jews (serving israel and not America) – this is common knowledge.

            Only idiots or the brainwashed will deny the mountain of proof that substantiates this.

          • Sinbad2

            Yes the US is run by Jews, but Americans vote them into power time and time again.
            And now your response will be yes but Americans don’t know what they are doing.
            To which I respond, if your that stupid, you don’t deserve to consume oxygen.

          • Lena Jones

            Whatever country you’re from in the West, your political system is occupied by jews, which means you TOO must be “stupid, you don’t deserve to consume oxygen”.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            first I dont care to know all the minions of the globalization club or care to waste my time and grey matter explaining a moron errand boy of the system who try to enslave us all. You do but I dont think any one who has average intelligence and above, care to listen to you.

            Your question it is the least naive because it is no different than to ask me to explain you why soldiers of the system go around in nations and attack them or a general that give them the orders. It is them and it is us and there is no middle ground and we are at war with them no matter what position they hold within the system that tries to oppress and enslave the world. So wake up and smell the roses and I dont need to know each of my enemies individually and rationalize why the scum of the earth is attacking everything we hold sacred and dear. Just that they do and I am against them in all levels.

            And who the f*ck is Eliot Abrams and why should I care? And little one, israel is a private real estate owned by one person and US is a colony same as australia and canada to mention a few, controlled by the same masters they control israel with their hard core in city of london. try and get educated and stop missing the forest for the tree is getting boring with you and your fixations. To most thinking people around the world the soonest united states become dissolved the better the world will be for it.

      You have a point.

    Good for him. He’s going to have to arm wrestle President Bolton first.

  • Lena Jones

    Ok mister president, you’ve said it enough times so now JUST DO IT!

    This is illustrative of the early days of the Trump administration, or even earlier of the election campaign. When Trump’s America First agenda resonated with much of the electorate. And was almost universally rejected by the Jew vermin sycophant swamp. The voters could put in office. But until similar people can beat the entrenched Jew incumbency. They pretty much a stranglehold on the US government to cover up 911, waste TRILLIONS on Jew wars for Israel and their Jew world order hegemony project, and pretty much sell the voters who put them in office out to the Jews. The US should be dejudified. There shouldn’t be any American Jews. The planet should be Jew free.

      “The vast majority of Senate Republicans backed Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Thursday in a rebuke of President Trump’s rationale for withdrawing U.S. troops from Syria and Afghanistan, voting to declare that the Islamic State’s presence and activity in both countries continue to pose a serious threat to the United States.

      The measure, presented as an amendment to a greater Middle East policy bill, is a striking reprimand of the president from a GOP that has become increasingly comfortable expressing its opposition to Trump’s foreign policy through votes on the Senate floor.

      That it was spearheaded by McConnell (R-Ky.), who often waits to cross Trump until there is overwhelming momentum in his conference, indicates how deeply the president’s announcements broke faith within the party. …

      “I believe the threats remain. ISIS and al-Qaeda have yet to be defeated, and American national security interests require continued commitment to our mission there,” McConnell said Thursday, before the 68-to-23 vote.”

        This has to be the scam of the century, at least up to this point, which includes 911. The “war on terror” is a complete Jew world order fabrication that every legislator in the US senate and congress is well aware is a total scam. Except maybe for a very small number who are so ignorant that they actually drank the Jew koolaid and believe this nonsense.

        The people actually fighting a real war on terror, not a concocted fantasy, is the Syrian government coalition. And the Jew world order NATO, Israel, and GCC miscreants who are running and funding it have the audacity to vilify these heros and sanction them in a complete Orwellian circle jerk. They’re a disgrace to their citizens and nations.

    Losing almost “$50 Billion” in th Afghan I beg to differ. The CIA generates close to $400 Billion with its illegal trade in Opium farms I wouldn’t consider that a ‘lose’ nah.. not at all. And plus the “counter-terrorism” efforts in Afghanistan are nothing short of a soft occupation. Same as the safe-zone they seek to establish in the Euphrates in Syria. I’d argue it as protective measure to keep the Kurds in tact so to deny the encroachment of the Turkish army. Afterall they are all allies with loggerheads at each other.

    The grand old Duke of York,
    He had ten thousand men;
    He marched them up to the top of the hill,

    And he marched them down again.
    And when they were up, they were up,
    And when they were down, they were down,
    And when they were only half-way up,
    They were neither up nor down

  • seawolf

    I suspect Trump will be withdrawing from Syria the next two years, and Russians will be telling us let’s wait and see !!!

    As I say something positive, I can sat the opposed.

  • Willing Conscience (The Truths

    No matter what he says no one believes him, the deep state of the US/Israel have brainwashed most of us from birth, so now most if us are incapable of distinguishing the truth from lies, the western celebrities and DJ’s have fried too many young minds for too many years, now when they hear the truth they think the opposite of what they’re told, up now means down, first really means last, and black is really white, and the best one of all, men can turn into women, no wonder the worlds so f-cked up.
    Get used to it all you people who can’t handle the truth, it may be hard for you to believe, but some people actually do mean what they say, it’s not really like Netflix, the new Star Wars movies or the Star Trek TV series are, where there are no real heros, everyone’s just a piece of worthless shit deep down, but in reality we still have heroes, people who try to tell the truth, people who try to do the right thing, even people who make sacrifices, they may not be perfect, just like Trump and Putin aren’t perfect, but if they at least try, we should at least give them a chance and listen to them, not just instantly believe they must be lying.
    Some of us now seem to find it easier to accept a lie and ignore the truth, but that hasn’t been working out too well, Trumps been saying the same thing since January last year and some people still don’t believe him, early on I could understand the hesitation for taking him at his word, but over the last 12 months everything he’s done should have made his true intentions clear to everyone, but some still doubt what he’s saying, that’s insanity at its worst, if you can’t learn from past behaviour you’re doomed. And you might say but that’s what we are doing, we’ve already seen the US always lies, that’s why we doubt Trump in the first place, the US’s past behaviour is why we’re calling him a liar and not believing him. But then I just say, US past behaviour and Trump’s past behaviour are separate issues, conflating the two are what gets most of us into trouble, I think some of us should try looking at the US and Trump separately, giving both equal scrutiny, there is a difference if you look properly.

    nah, trump realizes that syria is a lost cause and will therefore insist that troops and other engagements come to an end – the filth like bolton/pompous are dragging their feet but won’t be able to stop the process and, alas, you will find the destitute states of morons (aka usa) firmly on the iraqi side of the border come april.

    the venezuelan caper is a consequence of the syrian disaster from the perspective of the destitute states of morons and they, the morons, need to distance themselves from the breathtaking loss they are suffering right now. another vietnam if you consider the entire middle east, to the tune of 8 trillion $$. who would have thunked it – no one in washington dc apparently, what a pathetic bunch they are and what a good fecking larf for the rest of the world!!
