U.S. Troops Pulled From Syria Will Go To Iraq To Continue Fight Against ISIS

Published

U.S. troops being pulled from Syria aren’t coming home after all, being relocated instead to western Iraq where they will continue to be involved in the battle against radical Islamic terrorist group ISIS. Troops may also continue to fight against the group in Syria also.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper revealed the plans for the troops being yanked from Syria where they were helping Kurdish forces and are now experiencing a very hostile, aggressive military push by Turkey.

Here is more information from TheBlaze:

“One is to help defend Iraq and two is to perform a counter-ISIS mission as we sort through the next steps,” Esper said of the plans for troops stationed in Iraq. “Things could change between now and whenever we complete the withdrawal, but that’s the game plan right now.”

President Donald Trump ordered the withdrawal of about 1,000 troops from Syria. Some are still in northeast Syria defending oil fields from a Islamic State takeover and have not yet begun to withdraw. Several hundred will remain in southern Syria at the Al-Tanf outpost.

So when will the withdrawn U.S. troops return home? According to White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, “eventually.”

“The quickest way to get them out of danger was to get them into Iraq,” Mulvaney told Fox News on Sunday.

As a result, a move that was presented as an opportunity to bring U.S. soldiers out of the volatile Middle East and back home has become more of a strategic repositioning, especially if the troops do indeed continue conducting missions in Syria from Iraq.

It also appears that there’s some sort of potential issue with the messaging coming from the Trump administration over this whole withdrawal. President Trump tweeted this quote from Esper saying, “The ceasefire is holding up very nicely. There are some minor skirmishes that have ended quickly. New areas being resettled with Kurds. U.S. soldiers are not in combat or ceasefire zone. We have secured the Oil.”

But that’s not what Reuters reporter Idrees Ali, who is traveling with Esper in Afghanistan says. According to the journalist, Esper never said any of that.

I’m not sure who Trump is referring to, but I’m traveling with Defense Secretary Esper and cant recall the quote Trump is using,” the tweet said. “While speaking with us Enroute to Afghanistan, Esper also made no mention of new areas being resettled with Kurds or oil.”

Dem Mayor Defies Stay-At-Home Order to Get Haircut Because She’s ‘Face of This City’

Do as I say, not as I do.

Do as I say, not as I do. That should be the Democrat Party’s official motto. There’s no denying that liberals are raging hypocrites on most issues. Why not just come out and admit it? Who do they think they’re fooling? Check out what the liberal mayor of Chicago just did that regular Joe’s can’t do right now because of the pandemic, via Chicago Sun-Times: Getting your roots done isn’t essential, but getting your hair cut apparently is — at least if you’re the mayor of Chicago. Mayor Lori Lightfoot Monday defended getting her hair cut over the weekend at a time when beauty parlors are shut down. Lightfoot said, “I’m in the public every day. And candidly, my hair was not looking the way it did. I thought maybe I’d do it myself, but I knew that would be disaster.” She added, “But I think what really people want to talk about is, we’re talking about people dying here. We’re talking about significant health disparities. I think that’s what people care most about.” A Lightfoot tweet from a week ago: https://twitter.com/chicagosmayor/status/1244762897743351808?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1244762897743351808&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fchicago.suntimes.com%2Fcity-hall%2F2020%2F4%2F6%2F21211314%2Fgetting-roots-done-not-essential-getting-hair-cut-mayor-lightfoot VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ah7xQHo9WOQ Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/TwitchyTeam/status/1247345860758974464 https://twitter.com/NBCNews/status/1247358731790188544 https://twitter.com/FoxNews/status/1247340895013306370 https://twitter.com/thehill/status/1247357937896620032 https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1247357076378013696 https://twitter.com/ABC7News/status/1247360709123547137 https://twitter.com/MSDNCNews/status/1247355579892477953 https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1247357575697440769 https://twitter.com/wsvn/status/1247354661000097792 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1247350270507417600

Dem Rep. Infected With COVID-19 Praises Trump After Hydroxychloroquine Saves Her Life

How will they spin this one?

President Trump has been blasted left and right by Democrats and the mainstream media for promoting the drug hydroxychloroquine to treat coronavirus. Nevada’s liberal governor even banned the drug from his state just days before New York’s Democrat governor said he has seen positive results from hydroxychloroquine. Ultimately, it looks like the anti-malarial drug is working wonders for a lot of people all over the nation. And one Democrat who was infected with COVID-19 has some high praise for POTUS. From Detroit Free Press: LANSING – A Democratic state representative from Detroit is crediting hydroxychloroquine — and Republican President Donald Trump who touted the drug — for saving her in her battle with the coronavirus. State Rep. Karen Whitsett, who learned Monday she has tested positive for COVID-19, said she started taking hydroxychloroquine on March 31, prescribed by her doctor, after both she and her husband sought treatment for a range of symptoms on March 18. […] Whitsett said she was familiar with “the wonders” of hydroxychloroquine from an earlier bout with Lyme disease, but does not believe she would have thought to ask for it, or her doctor would have prescribed it, had Trump not been touting it as a possible treatment for COVID-19. Trump’s response… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1247268841845141504?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1247268841845141504&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.freep.com%2Fstory%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Fmichigan%2Fdetroit%2F2020%2F04%2F06%2Fdemocrat-karen-whitsett-coronavirus-hydroxychloroquine-trump%2F2955430001%2F Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/Smatz88/status/1247317559285866501 https://twitter.com/LoConservative/status/1247326162642239494 https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1247330914222387200 https://twitter.com/Aaliyahhhs/status/1247207920909144072 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1247329493942972417 https://twitter.com/nowthisnews/status/1247332765336391680 https://twitter.com/SenTedCruz/status/1247330495886757890 https://twitter.com/rufuswainwright/status/1247333402849742848 https://twitter.com/TheCoronaMemes/status/1247326742324187136
