Here’s the Background Story:
President Trump recently announced the removal of U.S. military forces from Syria. He hasn’t given a definitive timeline on the withdraw, only stating that “we’re getting out of Syria.” Do you think we should pull out of a fiercely contested country?
Here Are the Contributing Factors:
The war on terrorism has lasted far too long, and it’s spread through much of the Middle East. It started in Iraq before drifting into Iran and Afghanistan. Political developments and waves of refugees in Syria made it the next logical area for the conflict to thrive.
Syria has been a hotbed of terrorist activity for many years. It’s also a consistent source of countless refugees that pour into many European countries, Canada and America. The war on terror has been heavily focused in Syria for roughly a decade.
Syria has great strategic value to Iran, Russia, and Turkey. They’re the primary parties with a vested interest in controlling the state. Plenty of Americans are tired of the conflict, but is it a good idea to give up such a key location?

What Do You Think?
Trump has claimed victory over the Islamic State, who has been the primary target in the war on terror. He has assured us that the US isn’t removing itself from the greater fight against the ISIS. Our president believes it’s prudent for American troops to leave Syria now that the ISIS threat is gone from the area.
The bottom line is that Trump has given the word for our troops to leave the country. Is it finally time for Americans forces to pull out of Syria? Tell us if you think our boots on the ground should include Syria.
