Trump claims victory over ISIS
- 5 months ago
The U.S. will begin to draw its troops out of Syria as Donald Trump declared victory over the Islamic militant group ISIS.
In claiming victory Trump said that defeating the militant group was his only reason for being there in the first place, however not all of Trump’s peers seem to like the idea as much due to the fact that many officials would prefer to maintain a long-term presence in the country.
As Defense Department spokesman Col. Rob Manning noted, "At this time, we continue to work by, with and through our partners in the region."
That being said, it does come at a time when solutions in ending the drawn-out civil war have come slim and neither Trump or his predecessor Obama had the intentions of having a long-term involvement, not to mention Turkey’s threats to attack Kurdish forces on its borders with Syria as it considers them as part of a terrorist group.
That is one instance that the Trump administration does not want to be embroiled in nor instigate.
With that the two thousand strong army currently working with Syrian Democratic forces will be pulled out as of immediate effect according to sources whom prefer to remain anonymous.
