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

Published

on

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So when will the withdrawn U.S. troops return home?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.”

Had Jeffrey Epstein not been killed committed suicide, there’s a decent chance he would’ve spilled some shocking information on Bill Clinton and other high-profile, big-name celebrities, in exchange for a lighter sentence. The world will never see that happen. However, more and more information continues to leak about the former president’s relationship to the convicted pedophile and his madam. From The Daily Wire: Former Democrat President Bill Clinton reportedly had an “intimate dinner” with accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell in 2014, years after she had been accused of procuring minors for alleged child sex trafficker Jeffery Epstein. The dinner happened at Crossroads Kitchen, a high-end vegan restaurant in Los Angeles, according to a report from The Daily Beast, which noted that several other high profile individuals were there after being invited. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eS8aIa0h25s The craziest things seem to happen to people with dirt on Bill and Hillary, don’t they? On the night Slick Willy spoke at the 2020 Democrat National Convention, photos were released showing him getting massaged from an Epstein victim. And by victim, most likely sex slave. From Daily Mail: Bill Clinton grins with pleasure as he enjoys an intimate neck massage with a young Jeffrey Epstein victim in never-before-seen photographs obtained exclusively by DailyMail.com. […] Clinton traveled numerous times on the dead pedophile’s private Jet, the Lolita Express, socialized with his alleged Madame, Ghislaine Maxwell, and faced a slew of sexual misconduct accusations himself during his years in public life.

ESPN Host: ‘Right-Wing Extremists’ Are the Ones Responsible for Violent Riots We’ve Seen

LOL, this guy…

ESPN’s First Take morning show features two outspoken liberal hosts, Max Kellerman and Stephen A. Smith. Neither man is afraid of talking politics on their sports show, despite Americans constantly telling people to leave politics out of sports. If you’re a boxing fan, you know who Kellerman is. The guy is very knowledgable and knows the sport inside and out. Unfortunately, Max often times lashes out and shows the nation just how clueless he is when it comes to politics. On Tuesday, Max decided to go after right-wingers with a claim so ridiculous that you can’t really do much but laugh.

He’s a character, to be certain. That being said, the former ESPN personality and current Fox Sports talking head has been around all things sports for decades. He knows people. He has connections. According to Skip, Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James, who openly supported Hillary Clinton in 2016 and has been wildly critical of President Trump since he first took office, is considering running for president of the United States “some day.” You’d have to imagine based on popularity and his name alone, LeBron would snag quite a few votes – similarly to Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger when he ran for governor in blue California.
