The Same People Who Cheered When Obama Abruptly Pulled All U.S. Troops Out of Iraq Now Scream Because Trump is Pulling U.S. Forces Out of Syria

No matter what Trump does they will complain!

The generals and Obama's Secretary of Defense warned Obama not to pull all U.S. troops out of Iraq. He did anyway.  His defenders claim that we didn't have the Status of Forces Agreement to keep them there.  The same people said nothing when Obama sent U.S. troops BACK to Iraq without the same forces agreement.

Now, Trump is pulling U.S. forces out of Syria and the same people are complaining.... Hypocrites?  You bet!

They want Trump to leave troops in Syria to confront the Russians and the Iranians. But these are the same folks who insist who denounced Reagan for confronting the Russians and attacked President George H.W. Bush for tough talk on Iran.  Do they now want a war with Russia and Iran just because Trump does not?

Suddenly, the same people who have denounced nearly every move by Trump and his national security team which includes Defense Secretary Mattis are all hopping to use Mattis's resignation to bash Trump.  Once again, their hypocrisy is showing.

There are good reasons to maintain a strong U.S. military presence in the Middle East. But the minute Trump advocated for that these same people who are now showing the usual signs of hysteric over reaction would object to that too even if they had advocated for it the day before.

My advice to President Trump: do what you think is right. If I were President I would keep military options in the Middle East open. But of course the moment you do that these hysteric lefties will swear the sky is falling.  Don't pay them the slightest attention!
