As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.), the No. 3 Republican in the House, blasted President Trump’s decision to pull U.S. troops out of Syria ahead of Turkey’s planned incursion, calling the White House move “a catastrophic mistake.”
“Withdrawing U.S. forces from northern Syria is a catastrophic mistake that puts our gains against ISIS at risk and threatens America’s national security,” Cheney, a defense hawk who has become one of the leading voices on foreign policy in the Republican Party, said in a statement. “Terrorists thousands of miles away can and will launch attacks against America, as the United States learned on September 11, 2001.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“Pulling out of northern Syria ignores that painful lesson, represents an abandonment of our Kurdish allies despite their vital contributions to the fight against ISIS, emboldens Iran, and serves as an undeserved gift to the Erdogan regime, which has only continued its steady march toward Moscow,” she said, referring to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Withdrawing US forces from Northern Syria is a catastrophic mistake that puts our gains against ISIS at risk and threatens US security.
This decision ignores lesson of 9/11. Terrorists thousands of miles away can and will use their safe-havens to launch attacks against America.
