"Senator Marco Rubio of Florida said the withdrawal would be a grave error with broader implications beyond the fight against the self-styled Islamic state. Because now that the US has withdrawn or is going to withdraw from Syria. We we basically turn the country over to Russia and to an even greater extent. Iran Lawrence Korb is a senior fellow at the liberal leaning center for American progress and senior advisor to the center for defense information, he told all Jazeera Trump has long wanted to withdraw US troops from Syria last year. He wanted to announce he was talked out of it by. People like secretary of defense Mattis for John McMaster, who was done his national security adviser general Kelly who was the White House chief of staff and secretary of State Rex Tillerson, well, most all except for secretary Mattis. They're all gone. The other thing is that basically he is trying to in my view distract attention for all the domestic problems. He has at home. And so by announcing this, which is very popular with his base. He campaigned on it and most Americans are tired of the wars in the Middle East. This will help them at home. What has been pointed out by your correspondence? This is not good for the United States is not good for allies. And it's not good for peace in the in the region. That view is not shared by peace groups, code pink, women for peace. Aquatic? Trump's announcement calling withdrawal from Syria a positive contribution to the peace process, which would decrease tensions between. Between the US and Iran peace actions, gave Murphy said US troops lacked legal authority to be in Syria in the first place. Heck, it's actually absolutely the right decision to withdraw US forces from Syria. You know, President Obama deployed US soldiers Syria in violation of international law and based on some really dubious legal arguments around the two thousand one were authorisation which was really supposed to be about going after Al Qaeda, and ISIS wasn't even around at that point. So I think this is absolutely the right decision legally and also strategically for the US our continued presence. There is really only serving to prolong the war ends runs. The risk of confrontation with Russia with Iran with the Syrian government as we've seen already Trump is claiming that the self-styled Islamic state has been defeated. And that's the reason for his decision. Doesn't matter if that claim that it's been defeated is accurate or not. Well, I is this was definitely suffered. A lot of setbacks and still does exist, and you know, we should continue to work to undermine their their revenue. Streams on their activities, I'm to throw attacks and all of that. But I think the the US role in this campaign. You know, it's really should be about promoting piece about promoting negotiations. And and working to end this war us that we can, you know, have have Syria returned to a state of peace. And I think you know, the way to do that is focusing on on participating in negotiations. Unfortunately, President Trump is really drawn back from that a lot, and we should also be stepping up Terry, and Ed, and of course, we we really shouldn't be shutting our doors to the refugees from this conflict. It's been upsetting to CD administration's really callous and discriminatory policy is going to affect and you know, we're we're locking people for entering this country who are fleeing a war that we've been a major party to theirs. Been a furious reaction, notably. From Republicans who say, the US is turning Syria over to Iran and Russia and seem less concerned about whether the self-styled Islamic state is or is not still active and of raising questions about what the real purpose of US troops in Syria is to to withdraw troops. Does not mean that we're stepping back from Syria entirely. I think we really should be active in negotiations. And that's where we can, you know, really counteract. So the the power and influence at Russia and Iran and Syria getting involved there rather than by continuing to. Perpetuate this cycle of endless war that we've been involved in for for far too long. Appear to be some geopolitics with Turkey involved here. Turkish president Erdogan has made it clear he wants to target Kurds over the border in Syria move that would have been more difficult. If you as troops remained should the say of the Kurds via concern for the US. I think it should absolutely be a concern. But again, I think that the the way that we should go about addressing this is through negotiations and through cooperation and coordination with other countries in the region. You know, our military approach has not been holding the results that we want. It hasn't made us safer, and it's cost us trillions of dollars and countless lives gave Murphy of peace action. Oakland congresswoman, Barbara Lee, a longtime critic of unauthorized war in Syria and elsewhere said that as the US draws down its military role in Syria. It must redouble diplomatic negotiations to broker peace in the region Lee said Trump should not be celebrating walking away from a humanitarian crisis, especially when the THEO helped create. She also said congress must provide robust oversight over President Trump's ongoing military operations and foreign policy, Los Angeles, democrat, Ted lieu, hailed Trump's. Decision. He noted he repeatedly criticized both the Obama and Trump administration's for not having a strategy and for taking more actions not authorized by congress. The Senate was prepared to vote on legislation to keep the federal government running until February eighth the funding measure would avert a federal shutdown after President Trump backed off his demand for five billion dollars for a border wall with Mexico. Trump said last week he'd be proud to provoke a government shutdown over the issue, but Republicans had no such appetite for a move. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell announced the plan to keep the government running for another seven weeks after Democrats rejected his earlier plan that proposal would have given Trump one billion dollars to spend Unimak Gration as the president chooses faced with us and tragedy. With Democrats failure to take our borders. Seriously. Republicans will continue to fulfill our duty to govern. That's why I will soon. Take up a simple measure that will continue government funding in February. So we can continue this vital debate. After the new congress has convened..
