American President Donald Trump made a shocking statement during the recent Ohio rally as he voiced his intent to withdraw from Syria noting that he won the fight against ISIS and accomplished the task.
Is this just a “populist” political remark to appeal to the sentiment of the masses he was addressing – crowds that are ignorant in terms of foreign policy and what American national security necessitates?
Perhaps this is the case. However, this statement contradicts with Trump’s intent to confront Iran and eliminate its “malicious activities” in the region. It also contradicts with the current American mood against Russia’s ascendancy over the West and with America’s anger towards Turkey’s role in North Syria, i.e. in Afrin, as decision makers in Washington believe that Ankara is “dispersing” the real battle and deviating the compass from the right direction by not focusing on ISIS which is the West’s approach in Syria.
The enemies of American presence in Syria are Russia, Iran and Turkey. Turkish, Russian and Iranian officials will meet on Wednesday in Ankara to coordinate efforts in Syria. Russia and Iran are about to achieve their planned aims via the “crime” they committed in eastern Ghouta to complete the sectarian displacement which began with Madaya, Zabadani, Qusayr and other areas.
Everything that Trump is doing and that he’s done in the past year and few months since he’s become president has absolutely nothing to do with the statement made in Ohio.Mashari Althaydi
