  1. Trump hasn’t told the truth yet, so no one should expect him to start now.

  2. They are therefore used as a human shield to protect oil fields.

  3. IN HIS attempt to dodge responsibility for his strategic blunder in Syria, President Trump has created a kind of parallel universe, at least on Twitter. In that world, “our soldiers have left and are leaving Syria for other places, then COMING HOME!” Mr. Trump tweeted that on Friday morning — even as his defense secretary, Mark T. Esper, was confirming that, in the real world, hundreds of U.S. soldiers would remain, along with tanks or other armored vehicles, to secure Syrian oil fields.

    I thought all the American troops left Syria… By a lie, a man…annihilates his dignity as a man like mr Trump …

  5. There will be 4,000 troops there before too long.

  6. US soldiers protecting putin’s interest ….. what is happening

    • @eurekajim #VoteBlue2020 Look another Yankee with no brain, best you can say to someone you disagree with is that he is a Russian bot ? No wonders you guys are being used like sheeps

    • @eurekajim #VoteBlue2020 P.S: And you still are waiting Meuller report ? Hahahaha it’s way too funny!

    • “Protecting the oil” equals stealing it from its rightful owner, the syrian government and no, this is not putins interest, this is typical us interest.

  7. Not to protect allies but as oil company mercenaries. Trump looks to his own priorities as always

  8. Every step he take, every move he make is about corruption and bribe

  9. This is what happens when someone is addicted to uppers!! When they are high, there mind is allover the place.

    Who is the USA protecting the oil from, The Syrians, or their current best friend and ally, Turkey. And how long before the USA betrays Turkey like the USA betrayed the Kurds

    This what happened when you let a baby drive the car.

  12. The bottom-line with this story boils down to the usual: The President does not know what he is doing.

  13. When protecting minor oil fields will stand out as Trump’s signature achievement on foreign policy, you know this is bad. Leave the rest to the Russians.

  14. Lol Trump said a week ago the oil fields had been secured. Just another Trump made up on the spot lie.

    Troops coming home, ha, lets look after the oil first, always business first with Trump

  16. Americans will not protect people (the Kurds), but will protect oil. We all know the truth- it’s only ever about the oil.

  17. So they’re allowed to protect the oil, but not it’s allies 🙄

  18. When this for profit war started there was a picture of a soldier protecting haliburton oilfields in iraq, trump is exactly like bush: unqualified & plunging the u.s into a depression.

  19. Was the desertion of our Kurdish allies desertion in the face of the enemy

  20. Sounds like the opposite of bringing troops home unless you’re unbelievably stupid.
