Trump Vows To Keep U.S. Troops In Iraq To “Watch” Iran

President Donald Trump said that he will keep U.S. forces in Iraq in order to “watch” Iranian activities in the region.

“We’re going to keep watching and we’re going to keep seeing and if there’s trouble, if somebody is looking to do nuclear weapons or other things, we’re going to know it before they do,” Trump said in an interview with CBS News on February 3.

The American President also reaffirmed his decision to withdraw more than 2,000 U.S. service members from Syria and stressed that the withdrawal process have already begun.

“They’re starting to, as we gain the remainder, the final remainder of the caliphate of the area, they’ll be going to our base in Iraq, and ultimately some will be coming home. But we’re going to be there and we’re going to be staying,” Trump said in response to a question about the withdrawal timeline.

Earlier this week, Trump said that he inherited “endless wars” from the previous administrations. He renewed these claims during his interview with CBS and criticized former President Barack Obama for withdrawing troops from Iraq too early and for not launching an attack on Syria in 2013.

Trump’s decision led to a backlash from the mainstream media, prominent politicians and even senior officials in his administration. One of these officials was former Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis who resigned. Trump told CBS that he asked Mattis to leave, because he was “not happy with his service.”

Despite all internal pressure, Trump appears to be determined to pullout his forces from Syria. The preparation for the withdrawal are indeed undergoing. A Recent report revealed that Washington has reached an initial agreement with Ankara to establish a safe-zone in northeastern part of the war-torn country, once American troops are out.

  • Jean de Peyrelongue

    Trump is probably ignoring that their large base in Qatar is big enough and close enough to Iran to monitor every move from Iran. The necessity to be in Irak is not to watch Iran but to prevent Irak to join Iran in fighting Bibi the the Middle-East Devil.

      And to stop the Iranian gas pipeline.
      If you don’t buy American gas you freeze, like the people in Bulgaria.
      I wonder how many people will die because Little Joe Biden stopped Bulgaria buying Russian gas.
      Can we hang Little Joe for his crimes, I hope so.

        Well. Saudia Arabia has a lot of gas too. If You saw that, Ypou would put out Iranian gas in Your calculations.

        • Sinbad2

          Saudi Arabia, has one of the largest reserves of natural gas in the Persian Gulf. Proven natural gas reserves are over 7 trillion cubic metres (250 trillion cubic feet). Global production in 2009 reached 29 billion barrels (4.6×109 m3) of oil and 3 trillion cubic metres (110 trillion cubic feet) of natural gas.[5] but due to its sizeable domestic gas markets, is “unlikely to become LNG exporters anytime soon”. Saudi Arabia is prioritising upstream gas investment, but for use in the domestic power generation market, not for export.[6]

            Qatar is number one in gas reserves. They got out of OPEC in order to facilitate more gas production.

          • Sinbad2

            Mmm is that via American wishes and guns?

            Iran and Qatar share the Pars field, and the US effectively owns the Qatari gas.
            The US also wants to own the Iranian gas, and with US assistance steals Iranian gas, just like the US stole Iraqi oil via Kuwait.

            Once the US loses its military muscle, the victims of American theft will be queuing up to reclaim their stolen property.

        • jm74

          You do mean that they let off a lot of gas?

      The simple FACT is that as long as the Zionist cancer infects the region and the dumb fractured tribal headchopping Arabs have OIL, the Americunts will never leave Iraq, Syria, Libya and the Saudi and Persian Gulf EmiRATi petro-pimpdoms. Iran has been around as a state in some form or another for 3,000 years, so does that mean that the Americunts will stay in Iraq for next three MILLENNIA?

    • Barba_Papa

      I suspect that there is little chance of that happening. While Iraq has not turned out to be the pro-US pro -Israel democracy that the Neo-Cons wished for, it has kinda become like Egypt, yet another Arab country that’s basically indifferent about Israel. What only worries and obsesses the Neo-Cons is Iraq becoming that Shia land bridge that logistically connects Hezbollah to Iran. Which is why I think that while they think that Syria may be a lost cause to them to stop this from happening, in Iraq at least they still stand a chance. As they have legitimate military bases there and at least some influence in its government.

    • gustavo

  • NightTrain

    One of the reasons I voted for him was him campaigning on downgrading our involvement in the ME. It looks like he is doing that with Syria and Afghanistan but that is being countered with escalating a potential conflict with Iran. If a conflict happens with Iran his presidency is most definitely over and maybe the nation. People will be pissed and take to the streets. All the divisive issues will be thrown into an explosive mixture.

    “””President Donald Trump said that he will keep U.S. forces in Iraq in order to “watch” Iranian activates in the region.”””

    US forces in Iraq are in a perilous strategic position if Iran or its proxies moved against them.
    US with its limitation is not watching Iran, conversely, Iran and it’s proxies with much ampler forces are watching US and are ready to sweep them out.
    That is why Zionist plots against Iran are doomed to fail, because US forces in Iraq are sitting ducks against a coordinated attack against them.

    • Ma_Laoshi

      “US forces in Iraq are in a perilous strategic position if Iran or its proxies moved against them.” Yes that’s what we hear all the time, but there’s a pretty big “if” in that sentence. The orcs could only build up in Syria in the first place because their supply lines from Iraq were pretty secure in practice. The Dark Throne is having a ball demonizing Iran because it has not been given a reason to fear the country.

      Most of the time, Iran acts as if they’re taking lessons from Lavrov on being non-confrontational. It gets them nothing: Trump tore up the nuclear deal regardless.

  • RichardD

    The no fly zone in Syria should be expanded east of the river by doubling or tripling the SADF S-300/400 inventory now that Isis is defeated there and the US no longer has any excuse to be there. And is instead using that airspace to attack Syrian government coalition forces.

    Iraq should be informed that if they’re going to allow their airspace and bases to be used for Israeli style attacks on Syria from outside of Syrian airspace. That they’re at risk of having their air defense system taken down and those bases hit on an as needed basis until the attacks against Syria stop. The same goes for the Turks and Jordanians if they allow the same thing.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      and whose going to do that. Warn them and mean it?

      • RichardD

        Heads of state, foreign ministers and military to military contacts.

        • Promitheas Apollonious

          k you are not in touch with reality.

          • RichardD

            How so?

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            In my world IF is been planted many times never flourish. And between IF and reality based on fact, I would always chose fact and reality not an illusion someone has in its mind, where law and order prevails IF the world was perfect.

          • RichardD

            Being backed out of 70% of Syrian airspace and deploying 3 battalions of S-300/400s is fact. Both of which were precluded by ifs that happened. That’s reality.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            no reality is that all the battalions installed have been ordered each and every time to stand down, beside shooting or trying to shot down missiles never the platforms of them. That is the reality so even if they put 100 battalions with out the orders to confront the enemy just defend an airspace in a limited manner will make no difference.

          • RichardD

            There’ve been 3 Jew attacks in going on 4 months, down from 2 a week. Due to the SADF upgrade. Russia didn’t have to shoot down any planes to back the Jews and NATO out of 70% of Syrian airspace. That’s the reality.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            what ever, you can have your opinion and that is what it is, your personal opinion, as how you translate things in your mind not reality. What is going on in syria is widely known, as well why the israelis, stopped bombing for awhile.

          • RichardD

            I’m simply stating what has happened. It’s all a matter of public record. I could spend hours documenting it with quotes and links.

            Why don’t you quote what I’ve written and then disprove it. Rather than wasting my time with nonsense like:

            “you can have your opinion and that is what it is, your personal opinion, as how you translate things in your mind not reality.”

            You won’t, because you can’t because it’s all true.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            The reason they stop bombing the israelis is the direct hezbollah (over 150.000 missile power) threat and iranians that will retaliate and hit ground targets in israel as well the pressure russia put on them, that will not hold them, (iranians & Hez) this time back. Not because of S300-400, within syria.

            Those battalions went into syria with the solid purpose to stop a massive attack from nato and make them stop and think if they can afford, losing 70-80% of their air force in a case they decided an all out war in syria. Not why you think. But as I said believe what you like. I am not trying to convince you other wise.

          • RichardD

            Do you want me to quote threats from Hezbollah and Iran going back long before the SADF upgrade? The only thing that changed was the SADF upgrade. Which is what got the baby rapers to back off. They know that the Russians aren’t going to shoot their planes down if they don’t attack Russian targets. They also know that the SADF has and will continue to do so, now with far greater capability, if they don’t stop attacking Syria.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            no need, I am aware of everything is been happening in ME the last 50 years first hand. you argue based on your assumption that IF this would happen then that will stop. Your theory and assumption. I am not arguing just telling you what happen and why.

            keep basing your arguments on the IF and a theory of yours and stop wasting pixel space. They also know syrians will not go above russian directive until internal problems are solved. So continue on your illusionary IF. you have my blessing. and forgive me if I dont answer and continue this senseless argument of yours. I am not that polite.

          • RichardD

            You’re misrepresenting what I’m saying and what’s happening. There is no if to what’s already happened.

            The Syrians are already shooting down the Jew planes and firing on them outside of their airspace. The baby raper attacks didn’t reduce by 90+% until AFTER the SADF upgrades. Which is what they were designed to do.

            Ignoring this direct cause and effect correlation as you are doing. And trying to place the Jew’s policy change on Hezbollah and Iranian threats that they’ve been making for years, and in some cases decades, is foolish.

            All of the credible evidence points to this Jew policy change being precipitated by the SADF upgrades. Not Iranian and Hezbollah threats that the Jews have ignored for years.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            k my friend what ever you say.

    • Jens Holm

      Do You have wings ?

  • RichardD

    Trump’s Syria withdrawal is increasingly looking like it is something that is going to have to be compelled for it to move forward. The Israeli attacks were a blocking mechanism. If those can continue to be prevented. The US withdrawal has the potential to proceed. This doesn’t necessarily mean armed conflict with the US, though that should be a viable option.

    The same escalation management tools that are in place to deal with Israel, can be used against the US. Though they need to be more robust to deal with the US, because it’s a more powerful adversary. Though not necessarily a great deal more robust. Because once the US losses the ability to use Syria’s neighbors against it, it’s options against Syria become much more limited. And become largely confined to Israel and the eastern Mediterranean.

    It’s time for Syria’s neighbors to stop cooperating with the aggression against Syria. And tell Israel and Jewmerica that they lost the Syrian war. And it’s time to move on and stop the aggression and machinations against Syria. And allow the conflict to wind down.

    • RichardD

      Not only should the SADF be upgraded to put a no fly zone over all of Syria. But it should also have the capacity to destroy the air defense systems of it’s neighbors far into or completely on their territory. So that they are vulnerable to having their bases and other facilities destroyed by the SAA and it’s allies that are being used to attack Syria. So that the price of allowing these facilities to be used against Syria becomes to high.

      None of Syria’s neighbors, even Israel, want to get into a border war with Syria in response to their territory being used to attack Syria. They can’t have their cake and eat it to. They can’t say that we’re Syria’s ally, or that we’re neutral and don’t want to get involved.So don’t attack us. While they’re allowing their territory, airspace, and facilities on their territory to be used to attack and partition Syria.

      They need to know that there will be a price to be paid for complicity in attacks on Syria. And that they’l be made to pay it if they don’t change their policy in favor of the end of the war and peace in Syria.

    Iraqis, Kurds, Persians have lived together for over a millennium. Yes, there have been wars between tribes but we are brothers. We share a lot of history and cultural traits. The US empire which has been around for about 400 years has done nothing but rape, pillage, kill and create chaos amongst other nations. Trump is an idiot an only a Zionist or a braindead person would think otherwise. The US doesn’t understand history because they have none, so how can they fathom the relationship between Iran and the Middle East? Spreading western democracy in Muslim countries is an oxymoron, it will never work. This is why I know most of these dual-passport assholes in Israel are not the original tribe (only a few are) and lack the comprehension of their own religion. No matter how puppets the US tries to install in the Middle East and Africa the people will go back to their roots. Those that are puppets are traitors to their own people who are cryptojews.

        Actually, the CIA pimp Alija Izetbegovic was used by the Americunts to destroy Yugoslavia. Bosnians were the first Balkan version of ISIS where CIA brought thousands of Wahhabi headchoppers to fight against Yugoslav National Army while the Germans who have historically hated the Serbs, fanned conflict by arming and supporting the Croats with promises of EU membership and they did. Russia failed once again to support its southern Slav “brothers” while NATO bombed the crap out of Serbia. The junior pimp Bakir Izetbegović, the old man’s son was put as a puppet Presdeint of Bosnia by the CIA later on.

      “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.”

    Trump knows the U.S. army is useless, badly trained and with inferior weapons to those of the Russians and the Chinese.
    He will do well to bring all the troops back and save money and embarrassment.

    Nobody wants US made weapons anymore (unless they are for free) and unless you are the Saudis and their neighbours who just buy anything from anyone who has something to sell.

The Bilderberg Jew corporations and Wall Street control over 90% of US dwindling wealth. Goldman Sachs alone has bankrupted half of EU nations with Greeks and Italians in the worst shape. The Jew media in dumbed down US has brainwashed the moronic Made in China flag waving Walmart Trump trailer trash supporters who think that Zionism is part of Christianity and it is America’s obligation to defend the Hollywood created “chosen” scum.

            Look dude, pardon me for lecturing you, but the hate inside of you will eat you sooner or later. Your hate does not affect zionists in any possible way, but only you who suffers much from it. Please calm down the tornado in your heart.
            And, in my opinion, you are too much concentrated on the zionism missing the fact it is just a bough on the tree of satanism. Those christians, who support the zionism are just evangelicals who believe in heresy of millennialism. They are another bough.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            You are definitely pardoned dude, for being on the right track. BTW, I am in excellent health and exposing Zionist evil is my full time job and real fun to make the hasbarats squirm :)

          • Harry Smith

            Well then you understand that guys like evangelicals want ww3, couse they think they will be resurrected by their moshiah to rule with him the world for 1000 years, don’t you?

            So here the answer why Russia does not downing the NATO planes: it is a perfect casus belli, which can be accepted by the most of USA population. It is like riding in the bus with a dummy who has a handy and seeking just a reason to blow himself up.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Harry, I am not a big fan of Russia. It is a corrupt weak state and hardly in a position to take on US and NATO. Putin is in Zionist pockets, far worse than any American or European. Russia has been playing the Arabs since USSR days. I once had an extensive talk with Egyptian General Saad Shazli who was also scathing about Russians and their penetration by Zionists. Sadat had to kick out 17,000 Russians for maintaining operational security before launching the 1973 Ramadan war. Russia entered Syria to protect its only Mediterranean bases at Tartus and Latakia. Russians are afraid of Turkey as it is the second largest NATO army and will get instant US support. Russia is helping the Zionists carve up Syria. There are 2 million Ruski and Uki so-called Jews is Pisrael and they hold high positions and work with Putin and Jew Oligarchs in Russia.
            Anyway, this in my take and may make others uncomfortable.

          • Harry Smith

            Of course you are partially right about Russia. Our Czar Alexader III said that Russia has only 2 trustworthy allies: it’s army and fleet. So nothing changed since that time.
            On other hand: name me please any Christian country, which has no corruption. Our Christian civilization is in decline. Period.
            BTW, not all jews are zionists. Also, when you are talking about Russia vs NATO you are estimating your forecasts on the basis of US military school. Trust me, if Russia was so weak, as MSM portraits it, we were invaded by NATO decades ago. ;)

          • Zionism = EVIL

            The collapse of USSR really hurt Russia and then idiots like Yelstin and Oligarchs did the rest. Russia needs to create friends and alliances with independent nations like China and Iran. As you are well aware, Russia is strong in its nuclear deterrence and that is keeping it safe for the time being. However, as you say since Czarist era, western agenda is to get control of Russia’s immense wealth. It would be good for Russia to stand by its “friends” and not sell them to the Zionists. Russians have died at Zionist hands in Syria and no Russian reaction, that is not how a major power acts. It also sends a signal of weakness.

          • Harry Smith

            Well, lets suppose Russia downed Israeli plane or 2. What’s next? Does Russia really needs another war? But as far as I know our GRU way of doing business, those Tsahal pilots will suffer alot.

          • Zionism = EVIL

            Russia does not need to directly down a Zionist jet, all it needs is to arm the SAA with S-400 and other modern systems and let the Syrians and Iranians do it. Syria is being attacked daily by Zionists with impunity and as a sovereign nation, the Syrians have an obligation to defend themselves and their people. The problem so far is that Putin is not in line with Shoigu who wants a tougher line against the murdering Zionists, who only understand strength.

          • Harry Smith

            Russia send to Syria S-300PM-2 in late October. It is not an export version of S-300 but a system made for Russian army. In fact, those system worked in Russia in Central Industrial region and were substituted by C-400 not long time ago. S-300PM-2 has more sophisticated multifunction radar system, mobile command centre and special radar targeting station. Shoigu said that for preparing C-300PM-2 operators is necessary al least 3 months. Let’s calculate: November + December + 1/2 January (because of Russian Christmas holidays) = 2 1/2 months. So operators will be ready somewhere in the late February.

            You are smart decent guy and I appreciate your comments as you obviously also have a military background and good knoweldge. Cheers or ypa.

          • Harry Smith

            Thank you bro. Just keep calm and do not forget the Churchill’s quote, when you are estimating Russia’s actions.

            Everybody has always underrated the Russians. They keep their own secrets alike from foe and friends. —HOUSE OF COMMONS, 23 APRIL 1942

          • Brother Ma

            I also recommended the pilots be hunted down by Spetnatz as well. Surely the Russians can “heartattack” them like all those Russian ambassadors last year.

    Trump’s no military expert, but we are going to have to stay put to make sure these Arab don’t start another murderfest on each other.

      Good luck with that, the savage Abrahamic desert dwellers have been killing and crucifying each other for the past 2000 years. The Talmud spreading evil at its worst.

    Unconfirmed good news!
    “Russia reinforces Hmeimim Airbase with advanced aircraft and helicopters”

    ..total number of Russian warplanes at the Hmeimim Airbase is estimated to be between 30 to 50 aircraft….
    If this report proves true, this will coincide with the recent claims of a large-scale military buildup of Syrian Army and Russian military troops in the Idlib and Hama provinces.
