Syrian Sonata III

The president has announced the removal of all American troops out of the war-torn country of Syria. Six years ago when then-president Obama authorized the military there to fight ISIS with the help of Kurdish fighters in the region. This “full” and “rapid” withdrawal comes even as a surprise to our military leadership. The Kurds will once again feel abandoned by the Americans. ISIS is more than just people it is an idea that cannot be destroyed militarily. That is a fact that cannot be ignored.

The winners in this decision will be the Russians, Iranians and of course ISIS. These countries will have free reign in the region and will surely put the country of Israel on a higher alert status once we are out of the picture in Syria. Will Iraq be next as we draw down our forces in that eternally volatile part of the world? Time will answer that question. It seems that our American emperor has no clothes.

The president’s personal and financial problems are being talked about gleefully by the media to his dismay. The fact that the Russians are all over his family dealings since he took office makes him look suspect as being in the pocket of Putin. The Syrian Sonata continues.

I am a 64year old male. I live in California. I continute to blog as a way to give my opinion on things that I read about. I am a baby boomer and I feel that because of the life I have experienced, and the times we are living through the need to be examined with a critical eye. I feel this is my purpose in life. Live,learn, and comment. I will attempt to make this happen.
