Trump’s Iraq Troop Draw-Down To Begin This Month, Top General Announces

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Previously the Trump administration said it would aim for a major troop reduction in Iraq by the time of the November election.

It appears that promise — part of the Trump campaign’s longtime pledge to “bring Americans home” from unnecessary “endless” foreign wars and occupations abroad — is on track to be delivered. Head of US CENTCOM, Marine Gen. Frank McKenzie, said while touring a US base in Iraq that troop numbers there will be cut down to 3,000 this month.

Current American troops levels are at about 5,200 — though we should note the tens of thousands of US contractors and other privatized personnel that remain there.

Yep. I bet those troops won’t even change barracks. The only difference now is a middleman would be handling their paychecks.

Out from Iraq, but moving to… didn’t understand where. Home, Germany/Poland or Syria?

The mass shootings in the US have essentially stopped under Trump. Compared to what they were under previous presidents. I’m not sure why that is. But if Trump has anything to do with that. Then he deserves credit for it.
