Russia’s Pulling Out of Syria… Why Can’t We?

With ISIS defeated in Syria, Russian President Putin announced this week that he was withdrawing the bulk of Russian military equipment and personnel. Russian assistance was requested by the Syrian government as ISIS and al-Qaeda appeared poised to take control of the country. Meanwhile, the US has just admitted it has more than four times the number of troops in Syria than it earlier claimed. And Defense Secretary Mattis said the US, though illegally in Syria, would not be leaving. Why? On today’s Ron Paul Liberty Report:

    I am surprised that Putin is telegraphing this to the world. Won’t ISIS be waiting to go back into Syria?

    I’d bet the reason we’re helping Assad in Syria fight ISIS, is because Putin’s hackers got Hillary’s emails, including the ones from Obama suspiciously using an alias, and he’s used those emails to blackmail Obama and Hillary into doing it so Russia didn’t have to. Trump of course (given his mixed campaign messages to either leave the Middle East, or to destroy ISIS) is winging it.

    Both Hillary and Obama told us the Russians are great hackers, and I’d bet they know from firsthand experience.
