No one was even expecting a pullout of the Middle East.
This is just Trump flexing on Jews.
It’s a very good thing.
The Trump administration has ordered the military to start withdrawing roughly 7,000 troops from Afghanistan in the coming months, two defense officials said Thursday, an abrupt shift in the 17-year-old war there and a decision that stunned Afghan officials, who said they had not been briefed on the plans.
President Trump made the decision to pull the troops — about half the number the United States has in Afghanistan now — at the same time he decided to pull American forces out of Syria, one official said.
The announcement came hours after Jim Mattis, the secretary of defense, said that he would resign from his position at the end of February after disagreeing with the president over his approach to policy in the Middle East.
What a shitty scumbag this guy is.
A tranny-loving sicko.
Clapper going out there and shilling for him lets me know just how evil this bastard was.
And with him gone, that’s everyone on my list that I wanted out.
There is no reason to believe that the replacements will be any better, because it seems it’s totally impossible to get people into the government who are not horrible, but at least it feels good to get the old ones out.
Watching the TV and seeing all of these alleged liberals attempting to defend the war in Syria as great and then talking about how great Mattis is has been extremely satisfying.
They just keep saying “blah blah blah muh Russia.”
Secretary Mattis’ resignation is a significant loss and shows that that President Trump’s foreign policy agenda is spiraling into chaos. Read my full reaction: pic.twitter.com/dtGemheNT6

But I think everyone at least sort of kind of remembers that the Democrats used to be against wars. At least ostensibly. They were the ones who attacked George W. Bush over starting all these wars, talking about wars for oil and all of that. Even the most braindead among them must have some little bit of memory of that.
And now, ending a war is evil?
Because of something something something Russia?
Feels Good, Man
We had a long run with Trump seeming not to do anything good.
Now he’s apparently ending two wars, and it looks like – at time of writing – he’s going to hold fast on the government shut down and demand the wall money.
Maybe the Trump administration is on an upswing?
It seems it is on an upswing.
