Video: Kurds Throw Tomatoes at Withdrawing U.S. Troops in Syria


Kurdish civilians pelted a U.S. military convoy with tomatoes, stood in front of armored vehicles shouting “no, no!” and held up protest signs as troops moved out of Qamishli, northern Syria, video surfacing from the region showed on Monday.
American Secretary of Defense Mark Esper confirmed this weekend that President Donald Trump had ordered troops withdrawing from Syrian Kurdistan, or Rojava, to move to Iraq. Congress has not passed an authorization for the president to send troops to protect Syrian Kurdish populations – only Congress can declare war – though it did pass a resolution condemning President Trump for not violating the law and keeping troops in Rojava against Congress’s wishes.

U.S. troops entered the Syrian Civil War theater to fight the Islamic State, a jihadist group formerly known as al-Qaeda in Iraq. Congress approved all military action against al-Qaeda and affiliated groups following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Loss of a lot of commerce. They go, they lose good money.

Most likely reason.

No appreciation for what's already been done on their behalf.

To hell with them.

I've been saying for years we should completely withdraw from protecting the rest of the world. They'll figure out real fast how integral we've been to global security.

I'm going to be that guy.

So basically. . . the Kurds are pissed because we won't die for them in a country we have no reason to be in, in the first place.

If it was Obama that pulled the troops out, you guys would be having a circle jerk.
Do you really care about the Kurds?
I would bet you don’t, just another excuse to bitch about Trump.

I'm a vet. Been in too long, retired a few years ago.

I'm old, fat, and god-damned mean now.

I've seen the crap from the 80's when I first joined, to Kabul.

We don't fight to win, we fight to perpetuate.

And I, for one vet, (not speaking for any other vet) am glad that we're getting out of these stupid "police actions". I saw how the US and the UN treated the American soldier like tampons in Kosovo under Clinton.

Just use them and throw them away.

No more.

No effing more.
