At a Rally in Minneapolis last week, President Trump got emotional when he talked about the toughest part of his job being to write to the families of our fallen. He also said he was going to bring our troops home from Syria.
On the ground in Syria, US forces have been pulled back from the border area as Turkish forces advance and our former Kurdish allies - faced with little choice - have done a deal with the Syrian Government.
"An agreement has been reached with the Syrian government – whose duty it is to protect the country's borders and preserve Syrian sovereignty – for the Syrian Army to enter and deploy along the Syrian-Turkish border to help the [Syrian Democratic Forces, SDF] stop this aggression" by Turkey, the SDF said in a statement.
According to the AP, "Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Sunday that President Donald Trump had directed U.S. troops in northern Syria to begin pulling out "as safely and quickly as possible." He did not say Trump ordered troops to leave Syria, but that seemed like the next step in a combat zone growing more unstable by the hour."
Is it time for all of our troops to leave Syria?
