Leftist Opposition

I don’t understand why the Left is so upset with the President’s plan to withdraw US troops from Syria. And there is potential talk of getting our forces out of other areas in the Middle East as well. Why does the Left hate this idea?

In 2008, then US Senator and candidate for President, Obama made the campaign promise to end US involvement in the Middle East that was started by President Bush after the events of 9-11. Obama also campaigned on closing the military prison at Gitmo as well. You would think the Left would be enthusiastic about the end to these American Imperialistic hostilities.

Except to the Left a campaign promise is just a vote grabbing tool. They are not anything that is going to be kept. Get the useful idiots to vote you into office and then keep them fighting each other in little factions while working on the true Leftist agenda. That is to destroy the American Republic from within.

But because President Trump is not only fulfilling campaign promises, he is doing so against the total opposition of the Washington Democratic Republican establishment swamp. President Trump has proved that promises made to voters can be kept. And we will be expecting all of our elected officials to do so in the future. That is why the Left hates this idea now.

Syria

Only 9% of American’s believe that the US should get involved militarily with Syria. I am not part of that 9%. Syria is not an ally of the United States and removing Assad will only pave the way for a Islamist leader from the rebels to take control. Thus further destabilizing the region. And that will cause serious trouble for the only true ally the United States has in the Middle East. Israel.

So we should not put our young men and women on the ground. We should not put our planes in the air. We should STAY OUT of Syria. Islam has been fighting among itself since Muhammad died in 632 AD. We will only tip the balance towards someone we cannot trust even more that we cannot trust Assad.

The European powers and Russia are correct in this situation. We must stay out of Syria and wait and see what happens. If the fighting threatens Israel then we should get involved. But not until that happens.
