The only reason ISIS exists is because the West supported the rebels during the onset of the Syrian civil war which gave ISIS incubation room to establish itself.

ISIS incubated in the 10 km zone from the Turkish border that was receiving cover from US patriot batteries.

If the US patriot batteries weren't there the Syrian Air Force would have bombed ISIS training camps into the dust.

Not often I agree with you, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

It is time for men and women of honor to walk away. A grateful nation says, "Thank you."

The wheels are coming off Trump's mule driven circus wagon.

Elect a clown, expect a circus. Actually expect a disaster and we're getting it.

No, but it is time for them to get out of Syria.

"Elect a clown, expect a circus"

Elect a non-politician, expect changes to the usual BS.

"Actually expect a disaster"

The Middle East has been a disaster for a pretty long time. Time for American troops to get out of there.

Oh my...

Democrats on the Hill, who for 10 years were demanding our troops come home from Iraq, now sound like they went to the Paul Wolfowitz School of Foreign Policy:

There are in fact two international coalitions that say they are fighting ISIS in Syria.

And both say that the other isn't really fighting ISIS, but using the claim that they are as cover for doing nasty things.

That the only place ISIS is still an effective fighting force in Syria is where the US led coalition has forbidden the Syrian lead coalition from going is a pretty clear indication as to which claims are credible.

I don't think the US military withdraw from Syria will not affect on continue fighting against ISIS because the US ground troop was a small amount but the US troop will still station on the Iraq. The important thing is the US must guarantee the Kurdish Army about Turkish Military won't attack Kurdish Army from the ground and Air. Also, the US and allied Air Force must air patrol above the Kurdish control area and warn Russian, Syrian and Turkish Military to avoid attacking and bombing of Kurdish control area.
