The US has a lot of military influence in the conflicts of the middle east so considering what Trump said recently about pulling the troops out, I think this is an interesting piece of data.

The US is actually seeking to set up more military bases in Syria despite what Trump said.

Trump says literally everything under the sun, then does what he wants. I no longer pay attention to what he says, because it conveys no actual information. I just wait for him to act.

It's unfortunately no longer surprising that he's turned out to be a tool of the neocons and the Military-Industrial complex, just like Bush.

Unfortunately, he has a bunch of fanatical followers too. I post about corruption topics related to him once in a while in order to keep them in line.

We're going to withdraw from Syria, but first we need to build a military base, for...reasons.

Taxpayers' money at work people!
