Is Syrian Oil Now A ‘U.S. National Interest’? We want to hear how keeping our troops there in harm's way is 'America First.' | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Is Syrian Oil Now A ‘U.S. National Interest’? We want to hear how keeping our troops there in harm's way is 'America First.'

Sure, officially, the military says we are there for stability operations, keeping the peace between the competing factions in the contested areas of Northeastern Syria near the Turkish border. They will say we are still patrolling with Kurdish fighters against the remnants of ISIS. More importantly, however, is Trump’s reason for leaving some 500 troops there—for protecting the oil fields from the Syria government on behalf of the Kurds. More on that in a minute.

While RNC surrogates were congratulating Trump for “rebuilding the military” and his America First virtues in countering China and Iran last night, four American soldiers were recuperating from injuries sustained when a Russian armored vehicle sideswiped their own Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected All-Terrain Vehicle (M-ATV) as they were both racing down a highway in Dayrick near the Turkish border on Aug. 24.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was an absolutely detestably bad call on the part of President Trump, and needs to be reversed ASAP.

Mr President, Syria is a sovereign nation, . . .

. . . much abused as was Libya when Hillary/Obama engendered terrorists attacked both countries in March 2011. President al Assad is no more a terrorist than Colonel Ghaddafi was. Al Assad was for 10 years working in London as a ophthalmologist, and had to return in preparation to succeed his aging father. He finally defeated the terrorists, and had a sovereign right to ask the Russians to help him do this, and has no good reason to trust America, which cost the lives of 500,000 Syrians.

Sent this to the WH.
