McConnell warns against a rapid withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, Iraq

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell publicly disagreed with President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw most of US troops from Afghanistan and Iraq. McConnell said a premature American exit would likely be ’even worse than President Obama’s withdrawal from Iraq back in 2011, which fueled the rise of ISIS,’ adding, ’It would be reminiscent of the humiliating US departure from Saigon in 1975.’

“President Obama’s withdrawal...” That’s laughable, considering he upped the presence of troops in the ME more than any other President...

Iraq is worth overseeing but Afghanistan is never going to be much better than it is now.

Mr. McConnell, we shouldn't have been in Vietnam either. Stop blocking every attempt to bring our armed forces home.

Trump moves to remove troops from Afghanistan. CNN story calls him a dictator for doing it. https://youtu.be/w5UD7VTYo1E https://thehill.com/policy/defense/525532-new-pentagon-chief-hires-adviser-who-wants-quick-withdrawal-from-afghanistan New Pentagon chief hires adviser who wants quick withdrawal from Afghanistan https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/10/politics/pentagon-policy-official-resigns/index.html The sources said the effort may be because Esper and his team were pushing back on a premature withdrawal from Afghanistan that would be carried out before the required conditions on the ground were met, and other pending security issues. "This is scary, it's very unsettling," one defense official told CNN. "These are dictator moves." https://nypost.com/2020/11/13/diplomat-says-officials-misled-trump-on-troop-count-in-syria/ Retiring diplomat says defense officials misled Trump on troop count in Syria Trump purges warmongers from the pentagon democrats panic. https://youtu.be/w5UD7VTYo1E CNN war proganda https://youtu.be/dVjUMcizPjY

Ah yes, let's listen to the military wisdom of Mitch mcconnell. Iraq voted to kick us out, our presence in the middle east just radicalizes them. Less troops means less spending, or more likely, more troops available for iran.
