BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The U.S. military constructed a new base in the eastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governoratet this week, despite Donald Trump’s announcement that American troops would be withdrawing from Syria.

According to local reports from the Deir Ezzor province, the U.S. military constructed a new base west of the former Islamic State stronghold of Hajin.

The new military base was reportedly under construction before the U.S. President’s announcement that his nation’s troops would be returning home from Syria.

Hajin was captured by the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) last week following a fierce battle with the Islamic State terrorists inside the town.

The U.S. should not abandoned it’s Kurdish allies and leave them to the Turks who have vowed to destroy them. I say we should keep our troops their till the kurds are guaranteed their safety and rights as equals and hopefully their own nation.

Give them a nation somewhere in the US then, you got more than enough space but the majority of Syrians don’t want a third of their country lost. Plus, most of the Kurdish controlled areas are Arab majority populated.

@Tall cool one, the Kurds are not the first ally that the US abandon or betray. They practise maritime strategy at its best.

The US knows no friends or allies only service to their US interests which come as America first. The US services spy even on countries that have been in NATO with them for half a century or more. And when it serves US economic interests they threaten these long term “allies” with sanctions.

And the US plunder all with Ponzi schemes such as the sub prime affair of 2008.

It is more a question of persons than that of a state. In this instance, it is Trump being evil, not the US as such.

@Karel. Trump is not evil as a person but represents a class and a school of maritime strategic thinking.
