…Support Kurds In Syria While U.S. Forces Leave.

"While the announcement by President Donald Trump this week that the U.S. would withdraw its remaining troops from Syria seemed sudden, a Jordanian source told Yisrael Hayom that the step has actually been in planning for months and that Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia would work with Russia in limiting Iran's ability to act in Syria, with the blessing of Washington.

According to the report, officials of all five countries have been conferring for several months on the prospective American withdrawal. Despite the troop withdrawal, the U.S. will continue to be active in the Middle East, and in fact will increase its intelligence efforts and its security cooperation with Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia…."

Turkey and their Free Syrian Army allies vs. a coalition led by the Saudis and the Kurds. Iran and Assad will just love that.

A logical progression of disentanglement from a cluister Bleeped text created by the previous administration. No real news here other than the Arab alliance is starting to function to deal with their own regional problems. Remember the fantastic greeting the President got in Saudi Arabia? The agreements put in place there are starting to bear positive results.

Nothing wrong with Arabs settling their own regional problems. Erdogan and the Saudi prince can have at it as far as I'm concerned to see who gets to fill Saddam's shoes.

Being praised by a country which has one of the worst human rights records in the world is something to be proud of? But of course everything is because of the last administration, all journalists are enemies of the people who deserve to be killed and women should know their place and be subservient to men at all times. Small wonder that like minds were so happy to see each other in Saudi Arabia. And if this gets me Dawghoused I don't care as long as the post I am obviously responding to gets equal treatment.

Vigilant, there are a lot of decaffeinated brands on the market that are just as tasty as the real thing.

The irony is, of course, that all the recent problems in the ME (the rise of ISIS, Iranian ambitions) would not have occurred in the first place had the 43rd POTUS not invaded Iraq in 2003 because Saddam, albeit a dictator, provided the perfect sunni counterbalance to shia Iran.
