Here is one person that is behind President Trump’s decision to “Pull out of Syria.” We have had OUR TROOPS in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and who knows where else in the Middle East for how long now? Deaths over decades (actual numbers are difficult to find. Are they being published anywhere?), dollars spent as if they grow on trees (again difficult to find out the actual dollars spent) and we have ended up with what? I can answer that one: ZERO. How has it worked out for us? YOU answer that one.

From my little corner of the world I say, again, get out. "Congress, if you want this insanity to continue, vote on it, as in declare WAR.” Congress would find out in a New York minute just what the citizens of the United States desire. I say President Trump is doing the right thing by pulling out. Wouldn’t it have been great if LBJ pulled us out of Vietnam instead of going in with more troops and staying there? Pulling out could have saved a huge number of those 58,000 (?) who died there. How many dollars were flushed down the Vietnam drain?

To Senator Graham and group who think this is the wrong move, call a joint session of Congress and VOTE for war. Me? I say, President Trump continue to pull our soldiers out of Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan… NOW.
