Discussing the US' military role in Syria on Monday, American ex-Congressman Ron Paul identified which parties had played the largest role in defeating terrorist groups throughout the Arab Republic, and said the US should withdraw its troops.
Explaining the difference between Russia’s military campaign in Syria and the US' intervention, the ex-congressman said “First off, our government has no authority to be there. Another thing is it [Syria] is 6,000 miles away from home, there’s no threat to our security, our constitution, or our liberties. And we weren’t invited to be in there.”What Paul said is mostly true. Trump gave Putin the go-ahead to wage total war after he was elected and Putin and Assad "bombed their way to victory" shortly thereafter. The collapse of ISIS also happened to coincide with Trump cutting funding to a covert CIA program which armed rebel terrorists in Syria.
Those actions never would have been performed by Hillary Clinton who was pushing for a no-fly zone in Syria during her campaign.
On the flip side, Trump agreed to give the shady "White Helmets," who were allegedly behind the whole "Assad gassed his own people" scheme, another $6.6 million after temporarily freezing their funding in May.
Russian media reported last week they believe US intelligence is preparing another false flag attack using chemical weapons in al-Tanf, Syria.
