paul craig roberts speaks here about the possible responses from our owners now that hurricane trump has said we're leaving syria;
According to various news reports, the validity of which is always
questionable, US President Donald Trump has ordered the withdrawal of
all US troops from the portion of Syria illegally occupied by US troops.
This report is surprising as only a few days ago the US Department of
Defense declared that any Syrian, Russian, or Iranian action against
ISIS in the part of Syria occupied by US troops was “unaccptable.” https://www.rt.com/news/446328-pentagon-syria-turkey-military/
In other words, the Pentagon declared that the part of Syria still in
ISIS’s hands was under US protection and was not to be attacked by
Syria and its allies.
The question before us: Is Trump’s reported order of withdrawal going to happen?
It is too soon to say. As I write no support for Trump’s withdrawal
order has been reported in the media. Even the official statement by
the White House’s own spokesperson, Sarah Sanders, is unclear: “We have
started returning United States troops home as we transition to the
next phase of this campaign.” https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-12-19/drastic-reversal-us-prepares-full-withdrawal-forces-syria-immediately
In other words, the campaign against Syria is not over, but “the next
phase” apparently doesn’t need US troops. What is the next phase?
Until we know the answer, we do not know whether Washington’s campaign
against Assad is over.........https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/12/20/withdrawal-from-syria/
