Mike Pompeo said we SUDDENLY left that section of Syria because Erdogan called Trump and told him that he was invading that section of the country with 15,000 troops, along with bombers and tanks, in 48 hours.
President Trump tried to talk Erdogan out of it, but to no avail. (Even went "off script" with anger, according to Pompeo)
Rather than leave our 1,050 soldiers to face 15,000 Turkish soldiers, President Trump ordered those 1,050 troops to draw back to a different part of Syria, before the Turkish troops started their assault.
There are very evil people in our government and MSM who would have preferred to have our boys/girls slaughtered. Thank GOD President Trump didn't listen to those callous azzholes! We have a very special President.

This appears to be a President saying he'd do something, repeatedly promising it for a year and a half, then doing it. Nothing abrupt or "so fast" about it, but considering how rare it is for prior presidents or any politician to actually do what they said they'd do, I can sympathize with your confusion and conflicted emotions over actually receiving what was promised.
Perhaps, however a strategy had to be organised in a coherent fashion...not by Trump of course, but by Putin..and other international partners...with some playing with the actors involved.. hence,
'Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told Trump on October 6 that he would go ahead with a planned military operation in the region, where the US's Kurdish allies had been fighting the terrorist group ISIS.
Trump announced a US troop withdrawal from the region shortly afterward. Even Erdogan was surprised by how quickly Trump made that decision, Axios reported.'
Yuh see, a phone call is all it takes, and for an idiot like Trump to make such a call, is so Trumputinishmentalism.
In addition, the Kurds may now be seeking help from the Assad government, and only an idiot would not have some sympathy with that.
After that, it seems the UK has now, 'suspended' arms to Turkey, as wimpish, as the term, 'suspended' can be considered, in a protest against Turkey's government.
