US closes Al-Tanf military base in Syria

61
The United States intends to close the military base near the settlement of Al-Tanf in Syria, reports resource BuzzFeed, citing sources in the so-called "moderate opposition", the training of which fighters were conducted by American instructors.




The base is located in one of the key areas where the borders of Syria, Iraq and Jordan meet.

According to the source, soon everyone will witness the withdrawal of American troops, with which the opposition forces have fought shoulder to shoulder with a common enemy. He said that he was helping the US military pack up "inventory" and "remove equipment."

The publication notes that the unexpected withdrawal of US troops caused concern to the opposition. They fear that they will be abandoned to their fate. Moreover, Trump's order for withdrawal came after the head of the Pentagon published a letter of resignation, in which he stressed the need to support the Syrian allies.

The US Senate also did not endorse the decision of the president. A group of Republican legislators intends to sign a petition calling Trump to cancel his order for the withdrawal of troops. At the same time, the president himself was perplexed at the statement of party members, noting that he could not believe that they oppose saving the lives of the American military and saving tens of billions of dollars.

Recall, the statement of the White House about the new phase in the Syrian military campaign and the withdrawal of troops from the republic sounded 19 September. And the next day, Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced his decision to resign.

Withdrawal may take from 60 to 100 days. In total, more than 2 thousand troops will go home.

Earlier, Russia had already offered the United States to withdraw troops from the 55-km zone around Al-Tanfa and transfer control of this territory to the SAR government.

        Axiom: Where the Americans have come, they do not go from there.
        Conclusion: Either the Americans are not going to leave (that is, a newspaper duck or "at the request of the population" will change their minds). Or ... they are planning not a weak meat grinder in this place in order to return after it.

            In Vietnam, the Americans did not leave.
            They were kicked out of there.
            But they wouldn’t have kicked - they would have sat like that.

      At the beginning of the article, the main word from which one should start is the word "intend". Therefore, before claping your hands, it is better to wait for the real withdrawal of the US contingent from Syria, and not for their beautiful words. Everyone knows very well how hard it is to expel or squeeze the United States out of foreign territory, if you do not use the "magic pendel".

We’ll wait for the final withdrawal of American troops and see how events will develop further ... What is characteristic is the withdrawal of troops will be carried out during the winter ...

      No, they just save money on an unnecessary war. Ahead is the global, most powerful economic crisis, and its start is already taking place if not for weeks, then certainly for months. Trump, as a great businessman, optimizes expenses. We should also, although in our case it is useless - the management efficiency is negative.

    Withdrawal may take from 60 to 100 days. In total, more than 2 thousand troops will go home.

    During this time, the president of the FSA will change his mind more than once. Only the disproportionate cost of maintaining the base and the results of its work, leveled by the actions of the SAR and the Russian Federation, can push it to close. Mr. Trump knows how to count money - you cannot refuse him this. hi
