BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:45 P.M.) – In a series of tweets on Friday, U.S. President Donald Trump reiterated that the American troops would be withdrawing from Syria and Afghanistan as they have cost Washington a great deal of money.

“I inherited a total mess in Syria and Afghanistan, the “Endless Wars” of unlimited spending and death. During my campaign I said, very strongly, that these wars must finally end. We spend $50 Billion a year in Afghanistan and have hit them so hard that we are now talking peace after 18 long years”, Trump tweeted.

Trump would add that “….after 18 long years. Syria was loaded with ISIS until I came along. We will soon have destroyed 100% of the Caliphate, but will be watching them closely. It is now time to start coming home and, after many years, spending our money wisely. Certain people must get smart!”

As of now, the exact date for the U.S. withdrawal from Syria is unknown because it is contingent on defeating the terrorist group. ; however, it appears that they are close to capturing the Islamic State pocket that is located east of the Euphrates.

so many US money & blood & life… what do they get ?

Afghanistan has been done for Israel? ROFL.
Intervention in Iraq for Israel? Not at all! It was for US interests! “USA has no friends, only interests” – Charles De Gaulle
Now the region is no more interesting since US have found serious oil in Alaska+Mexico Gulf added to the shale gas revolution.
By 2030, the Mid-East will near be oil-dry, so even the US “Global Energy Dominance” politic won’t still have interest there. The good point will be that there also won’t be money to fund ME states geopolitics through Islamist militants too, no matter if Sunni or Shia…

@CHAOS KNIGHT, not for the Zionists. It is another oil and pipeline war according to J. F. Kennedy jr. and others.

Trump siempre maneja doble discurso, pero tiene razón en decir que se gasta millones el dinero de los contribuyentes.
Ahora Trump está mirando el petroleo de Venezuela…

Search about “Global Energy Dominance” policy, you’ll understand better. USA don’t need oil or gas any more : they now produce more than what they need and Obama has highly boosted alternative energies through huge wind-turbines and solar panels fields, so needs on fossil energy have lowered too. Now US are actually trying to export, e.g. try to impose US LNG on EU market by threatening Russian pipelines… Mid-East oil is slowly but surely running out. US don’t need Vz oil, but if they want to screw the oil+gas market in favour of Exxon, Chevron, Conoco+Phillips instead of Sinopec, Aramco,… Read more »

OT @Daeshbags-Sux, the US swim in sweet crude but lack sour crude. The later is full of heavy chemical precursors. PSVDA’s crude is so sour and full of heavy factions that they have to import more liquid oil to mix and run pipelines.

The fossil fuel age is at a brink not because the sources run out any time soon but because alternative energy becomes cheaper.

p.s. US firms stole wind-turbine tech and licensed it to bar EU patents.

The US want to duck the costs of the chaos they have created in Syria on behalf of their Gulf clients.

Just an actors words. Look for escalation instead. These nothing statements let Americans get used to the idea of being in Syria and somehow leaving Syria at the same time

ONLY zionist want to wage illegal wars Like the Brit empire before that had a kings head lopped off and a zio line of outsiders put in the US had presidents killed to steal our nation as well and lead it around the war waging rothschild banker wars

ROFL : Haniyeh (Hamas leader) is twice as rich as the only Rothschilds’ family only billionaire in $. Mahmoud Abbas is as rich as him, Mashal and Abu Zarmook are +50% richer than him.

Charles I of England had his head lopped off in 1649AD.
JFK killed for Zio interests? C’mon! Military Industrial Complex job! FK refused to escalate in Vietnam! LBJ escalated, then armament companies became freaking rich.

You proved your advice irrelevant by total lack of knowledges.

I know in your dualistic beliefs that telling lies and doing the work of your father is ‘service’. In the world I’m from we call that evil and of the devil The New York Times has an article on how the Israelis created hamas to counter the plo and the whole world knows how the rothschild turds created that state as well as there pas Cromwell offered to give his Jewish backers St. Paul’s cathedral to turn into a synagogue after killing the king bringing London the Black Death a fire that gutted London the introduction of slavery banking and… Read more »

Oh and lifted the English ban on all Jews ever setting foot in England on pain of death……. The US had similar civil wars by the first Jewish senator Benjamin Judah who became the head of the south’s finances stole all there money went to England and was knighted for his actions in trying to destroy the USA. The battle against evil is an old one but the money printer parasites is fairly new one

@johnny what’s the Middle East costing the US’ oil wars and chemical media propaganda? The home of the brave world police and military industrial complex has been living from the proceeds of printing money for war ever since the Bretton Woods Conference. As WW I president Wilson put it. The US need new markets. And they were found in constant war for world domination. In WW I they supplied the English Empire and after WWII their own. The post war US president’s would hang if the Tokyo trials’ principles were applied to the “land of the free” enterprise my arso.

That’s the game the bankers say the US is in debt to them tens or hundreds of trillions. The people are now serfs and don’t know it yet

@Rex, that is only fiat money. Don’t you worry.
The Federal prints money that is used to pay.
In debt is only the private man who borrows to buy a house and thus becomes a serf to the bankers.

p.s. Unless he became a tiny wheel in the sub prime racket that milked the banks of other nations.

The UK just refinanced rothschild loans from the battle of Waterloo

Fiat money is fake but the blood death and tears it takes to ‘pay it back’ is real

Johnny was : sorry, but there is no chemical Assad! The 2013 East-Ghouta massacre was PROVEN by UN teaming with MIT teacher and OPCW having been made by Nusra or Jaysh-al-Islam : Sarin shells were shot from their common lines. Sarin chemical markers (Soviet have put such in all chem weapons they sold) came from Gaddafi’s arsenals. Turkish intelligence smuggled this outside Libya, this is also well known. This is false flag, and so were all smaller scale chem attacks! Everybody knows this. What REALLY triggered Putin’s intervention in Syria? The US-backed coup in Ukraine, a set up to cut… Read more »

@Daeshbags-Sux, the idiot – use google to see who – even threatened to sanction Germany if the North Stream 2 was completed. He never fathomed what firms engaged in the project. Major firms of several countries are involved. And the whole EU is hard to sanction. That is why certain US circles work against the EU and €uro and any aspect of European unity.

p.s. Never mind, “Johnny was” is a geophysics post doctorate and peddles the chemical opinions of his oil and pipeline mafia states and firms. Hope that gets him a good job with them.

FYI “Johnny was”, the original word THUG, comes from followers of an Indian Goddess which her followers known as “Thuggies” practiced human sacrifices. Saint James, the apostle founded a church at this temple site.
