President-elect Donald J. Trump said Friday that he was likely to abandon the American effort to support “moderate” opposition groups in Syria who are battling the government of President Bashar al-Assad, saying “we have no idea who these people are.”Here.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal that dealt largely with economic issues, including his willingness to retain parts of the Affordable Care Act, he repeated a position he took often during his campaign: that the United States should focus on defeating the Islamic State, and find common ground with the Syrians and their Russian backers.
“I’ve had an opposite view of many people regarding Syria,” Mr. Trump told The Journal. “My attitude was you’re fighting Syria, Syria is fighting ISIS, and you have to get rid of ISIS. Russia is now totally aligned with Syria, and now you have Iran, which is becoming powerful, because of us, is aligned with Syria.”
FINALLY! I have never understood the Neo-Cons and Neo-Liberals love affair with supporting "moderate" rebels! Is their any such thing? Personally I'd rather we sent the money to unicorns...at least they exist in fiction...a moderate rebel is a creation out of whole cloth!
As usual his explanation for his move is a bit hard to digest and understand but at least he's doing the right thing.
Thank God. The Republican Elite have been defeated and it looks like the Neo-Cons and Neo-Libs are being put in a cage.
