U.S. Troops Are Leaving Syria, Here’s What It Looks Like | NYT News


These are some of the American troops who’ve been ordered to leave Syria They’re driving through the mostly Kurdish city of Qamishli and headed to Iraq It’s vegetables that are bouncing off the armor and sticking to the windows The US troop pullout is controversial many in the Kurdish north feel betrayed American soldiers were essentially protecting them from attacks by Turkish forces But president Trump has long pushed for an American pullout forever It’s sand and it’s death Elsewhere in Syria. The withdrawal is less eventful military convoys joined routine traffic on the highway But it’s not just the exit that draws attention It’s what the Americans leave behind Like this outpost near the city of men bish filmed by a Russian journalist Here’s what it looked like when US troops were stationed in the area Now they’re gone and Russian media has arrived Literally opening the gates Russia is trying to fill the void left by the US and Syria moving its forces into Kurdish areas to broaden influence across the country in Social media posts Russian reporters make a special point to highlight the signs of a hasty American withdrawal Discarded footballs and empty sleeping quarters At another base it’s a Harry Potter book and hand drawn signs supporting the troops but at the Lafarge cement factory a former base the u.s. Disposes of what it left behind a Defense official announces that American planes bombed US munitions stored there to prevent anyone else from using them How quickly do Russian troops move in Here our US and Russian troops at the same strategic location. Just two days apart And it’s not just Russians moving in alone. Syrian army soldier scales a hill that’s close by and Waves the flag of President Bashar al Assad’s government which originally lost this territory to armed rebels seven years ago small groups of American troops will remain elsewhere in Syria on different missions But for now the u.s. Role in working with and defending kurds in the north has come to an abrupt end

    When democrates who advocated for peace and cried about Iraq war as a mess , now saying pulling out is a bad idea. Even a prominent democratic leader who's son is in the military, said to press that he won't trust president trump for handling his son in war. Now the guys who cried trump will take America into war is crying for war. Yes. Abandoning allies is wrong, but when US avoided South Vietnamese, lead to 1 million deaths, who did anyone blame? No one. Because it was pressured by dems. US allies will come and go. For the people who cry about who would trust America, didn't u guys know about CIA?

    Why do i have the feeling from this report that the US stand to loose sth by withdrawing ? As always the media tries always to brand everyone as the ennemis of the US starting from the Russian, the Turks, the syrian government and Iran as all of them are located in this region and have their stake in what is happening .
    It is simply naïve to think the US would have protected the Kurds againts the Turks or the Syrian governement and their allies if so they would have helped them in the Afrin region in 2017 or the Syrian government offensive in der ezzor, i believe only through dialogue that things can be done America should not be dragged into another set of war with broader consequence for no valid reason.

    I'm of two minds on this. On one hand it's a shame for our U.S. forces to abandon a people that have been so helpful in our war against ISIS. They deserve our respect and attention. On the other hand, I know it will be welcome news that some of these fighters will be coming home. On the individual level, I know some of them don't want to be there at all; some do, though. That, plus I hate Trump and want him out, but I'm wise enough – I say that with all the humility in the world – to be able to separate good decisions versus bad ones. Only time will tell if this was a good decision or not.

  44. Ka Bar Brother Posted on October 22, 2019 at 8:45 pm

    We (the US) had no business being there in the first place. We could have supported the Kurds materially in their fight against ISIS, without using our troops as human shields against a NATO ally. Nine months the pull-out has been impending, even after an extension, so not as abrupt as many have been led to believe. The US doesn’t have the authority to unilaterally establish a Kurdish State within the borders of sovereign countries, and it was unrealistic at best to expect that we should, or could.

    Here's what's happening on the ground today. Russia has brokered a deal with Assad to have Russian troops patrol the Syria/Turkey border (the Russians just started moving troops in today), Russia as part of the negotiations is selling access to the Kurds oil fields to the Iranians so they don't need to worry as much about the U.S. sanctions. Assad will then just do as the Russians and Iranians want because they will have absolute control of the region.

    I'm not convinced ISIS will bounce back very quick because Russia, Iran, and Syria don't support ISIS either.

    And of course, the Kurds will fall in line with whatever those three countries want out of survival at this point.

    Here a short summary and timeline about the strategic and planned moves of Erdoğan.

    Goal: Control, blackmail all Europe and eliminate all Yezidi Kurds and PKK supporters simultaneously.

    1. wait until someone makes a mistake.
    = USA under the command of the Chief in Commander Donald J. Trump, withdrawing troops from Syria.

    2. take advantage of the situation, weigh the chances of victory against the chances of consequences.
    = blackmailing the EU with the threat of refugee flooding. EU gives way easily and calls the genocide a military offensive.

    3. foreseeing the enemy strategy.
    = Kurds deliberately destroy ISIS prisons, from which terrorists camouflage themselves among the refugees who go in the direction of Turkey.

    4. to take advantage of the enemy's strategy. = Turkish government isolates refugees (also terrorists) completely from the country. The EU is now suddenly not blackmailed because of the refugees, but because of the ISIS-cells, which camouflaged themselves in the shadow of the Turkish state, established in the camps.

    Erdoğan has started to play with bad cards, but now he is the one who distributes the profits.

This has been yet again a trump appeasement to his boss, is trump a Russian operative, one has to wonder!!! His policy again favours Russia advancement , interesting that both Russia and trump were willing to sell arms to Turkey, trump furious when his 3.5 billion deal declined by congress ( refer back to December 2018 to read arms deal) so the Kurds in that case would have been bombed by Russian and US arms if that deal had gone through. Mr trump has trump towers in Turkey, he wont enact financial sanctions that could cause him a personal economic loss.
