Pompeo: US Troops to Withdraw From Syria, Continue Anti-Daesh Fight

On 19 December, US President Donald Trump announced victory over Daesh in Syria, adding that the fight against the terrorist group was the only reason the United States remained in Syria.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo commented at a joint press conference in Cairo on the US troops withdrawal from Syria and Washington's plans in the Middle East.

America is a "force of good" in the Middle East, Pompeo said. He also claimed that "when America retreats, chaos follows."

"For those who fret about the use of American power, remember: America has always been a liberating force, not an occupying power, in the Middle East. We've never dreamed of domination. Can you say the same of the Iranian regime?" the US secretary of state said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am amazed Pompeo didn't spontaneously combust on that last one!
