HomePolitical NewsSusan Rice: 'Kurdish Blood is on Trump's Hands' Keely Compson October 10, 2019 Unless you've been living under a rock, you have heard about President Trump making the decision to pull American troops from Syria. For more reason than one, this needed to happen. We were only supposed to be in Syria for an extremely short amount of time, which turned into years!

He said, "The United States was supposed to be in Syria for 30 days, that was many years ago. We stayed and got deeper and deeper into battle with no aim in sight." The president added, "I held off this fight for almost 3 years, but it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home.

But Europe did not want them back, they said you keep them USA! I said “NO, we did you a great favor and now you want us to hold them in U.S. prisons at tremendous cost.
