    Let's face it, we, the American people, do not have a "dog" in the fight between Assad regime and ISIS inspired "rebels."

    So why are we still in Syria with no US national interest there.....

    Let's have a look at who wants us to stay....


    Dianne Feinstein

    "I call on President Trump to develop a comprehensive strategy to end Syria’s civil war. Congress can then consider an AUMF if additional force is to be used. I fully support a robust U.S. role in ending the Syrian civil war as soon as possible." ie we stay there forever


    Peter King

    "fully supports" staying in Syria


    Lindsey Graham

    Trump will "look weak" if the US leaves


    John McCain

    Trump's talk of leaving "emboldened" Assad - we must stay


    Bob Corker

    Corker says withdrawing from Syria now would be 'major disaster'



    Why are we still in Syria with no US reason to be there????????

    Well you have been in the quagmire of Afghanistan since October 1 2001, nearly 17 years and nothing has changed for the better in Afghanistan, The Taliban have regrouped years ago and just a few days ago the Puppet Afghan Government is again under threat from The Taliban in yet another district:

    Afghan government under pressure as Taliban threaten new district

    You cannot even after 17 years get Afghanistan under some normal control, so it's 100% not likely you can get Syria fixed and again Iraq is a TOTAL mess which their election being won by the coalition of Muqtada al-Sadr the Radical Fundamental Islamist Shia Cleric who HATES Iran and HATES America and the American supported outgoing Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi he came THIRD in the election.

    Then what the hell will the Pentagon do with its $700 billion budget?

    Expect more 3rd world military adventures, not less.

    You can't say Russia didn't warn Bush it was unwinnable. How long were they there?

    1. Plenty of stupid libs in this country that are not jewish. It is wrong to not give them their share of blame.


    2. McCain is no tool of lobbyists. He has been consistent and steadfast in his wrong headed and stupid policy positions for decades. We have no reason to doubt his sincere belief in his stated foreign policy positions. THe fucking moron.

    It is very wrong to give him less than all the blame he deserves, just because you have an issue with jews.

    3. DItto for so many other people.

    Dr Paul is correct again, He knows what a failure our foriegn policy has been for the past 50 years and to his credit he has warned us about it

    We need to leave the ME and let the chips fall where they may, we should also pull our troops out of every foreign country, it is none of our business, we have enough issues as it is.
