RE: The Syria conflict thread
It's really amusing hearing my government trying to talk up the threat of ISIS. "Oh, there could be a resurgence if we leave, thousands of goat fuckers could come back and threaten all the gains us and us alone have won. We simply must stay in Syria forever just like Afghanistan and Germany and Japan and..."

I'm sure ISIS will pop up in Venezuela next. And, possibly, the whole world. God it sure is hard being the white knight savior of the entire planet.

More good news, my skepticism goes without saying, of course.

US to leave 200 troops for peacekeeping after withdrawal

Quote:US officials said American forces were initially given 30 days to leave Syria, but Mr Trump later said the withdrawal would be slowed down.

Quote:Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said: "A small peacekeeping group of about 200 will remain in Syria for a period of time."

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who was a vocal opponent of the withdrawal decision, praised Mr Trump's latest move and said the troops would work "as part of an international stabilising force".

US troops currently have a presence in a network of bases and airstrips in an arc across north-eastern Syria.

Quote:This shift in the US position may to some extent reassure its Kurdish allies and help to keep some small elements of allied troops and special forces on the ground.

The troops have been described as "peacekeepers" by the White House but they clearly will be helping to keep the Kurdish forces credible and linking them up to US air power if necessary.

Ostensibly this is about preventing the resurgence of IS and it also prevents an even deeper push into Syria by the Turks.

But the fact that one of the two remaining US bases will be in the south east, near to Syria's border with Iraq and Jordan, shows that countering Iranian influence remains one of the central guiding principles of the US approach.

However, this still falls far short of a comprehensive strategy for the future of Syria or the region and, for Washington's Kurdish allies, may just be a temporary blessing.
