None of this can be accurate because Donny promised he was getting us out of the ME and Trumpophiles have been screeching the same. They weren't incorrect or lying, were they? That couldn't be it because they are always accurate and truthful.

American troops who remain in Syria

This must be fake news: Trump said ... oh, I get it.

Heh, and if Trump pulls all troops out of Syria, you'll be screeching that he's "abandoning the Kurds." No matter what he does, you complain. Makes you look silly, Chip Star.

I've said I want him to pull the troops out of Syria.

Trump kept 600 American troops in Syria guarding the oil fields. I guess that's Trump idea of a total troop withdrawal.

Hill said while some troops are going home or withdrawing to Iraq, others are redeploying to Qamishli area, Deir el-Zour and Derik, an area where no U.S. bases were before.

Ok, good enough for me.

He said keeping the oil in the hands of his forces was a good card for political negotiations.

why aren’t the Americans allowing the Syrian government access to and the opportunity to guard their own resources?

Incorrect. You look silly because you cant seem to grasp that how something is done is as important as what is done.

None of this changed the fact that Donny isn't getting troops out of the ME, which is what you all were screaming he was doing when he followed Erdogan's orders to withdraw from northern Syria.

Glad to see you admit that Donny isn't getting us out of the ME and that you are okay with out tripps being there. It is, of course, 180 degrees off what you've previously stated.

Why did the US troops even leave then and plunging the area into chaos, when they ended up going back anyway to do the same things they were doing?

Seems likes it's all just a waste of lives and infrastructures

They are not keeping any "pressure" on IS, and they have no business being there in the first place.

It was the Syrian armee with Russian help that defeated IS and by extension the meddling US who had been supporting the "vetted rebels" aka ISIS in drag.

I hope Trump succeeds in reversing the disastrous regime change policy started by Clinton/Obama. Of course he is up against the entire Washington swamp and the fake propaganda media, which produces misleading articles like this.
