"Trump administration plans to pull U.S. troops from Syria immediately, defense official says"

The Trump administration has decided to pull all U.S. troops out of Syria, a defense official said on Wednesday.

The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a decision that has not yet been announced, said the decision was made on Tuesday and would include the entire force of more than 2,000 U.S. service members.

President Trump has long promised to conclude the campaign against the Islamic State and has questioned the value of costly and dangerous military missions overseas. But U.S. troops, working alongside Syrian partner forces, have struggled to eradicate remaining pockets of militants in central Syria. An abrupt American withdrawal would raise questions about whether the militants would be more easily able to regain strength.

The unexpected White House move comes as tensions increase sharply with NATO ally Turkey, which has promised to launch a military offensive against the U.S. partner forces in Syria, which Ankara considers part of a Kurdish terrorist group.

The withdrawal is expected to occur as quickly as possible, the official said.

The Wall Street Journal first reported on Wednesday that U.S. troops would be removed from northeast Syria."

good point olde reb, and there's the nth border also, and all the airports - I think they are even more of a concern. Watch out for any night flights coming in. 

Complete speculation on my part.

Trump's/America's enemies are well with the walls.

Bringing those troops back home and out of harms way while Trump deals with the internal enemy.

Meanwhile the military prepare for it's next campaign.Ukraine-Russia/China etc.

do you think trump would dare look at any possible problems in the Federal Reserve  ??      ref.   https://thedailycoin.org/2018/08/16/a-look-at-the-federal-reserve-through-a-different-lens/.


I think trump wants good relations with putin.  there is a potential hotel deal there.   putin would get a penthouse.

  what should i read into 'night flights' ?

saw one video showing 26  C-130 (he called them B-52) taking off from AZ airbase in Tuesday.
