The war that seemed perpetual, might have come to an end, at least from one side as United States President Donald Trump called for an immediate pull-out of US troops from war-torn Syria, declaring the defeat of ISIS by the United States.
The abrupt declaration of full withdrawal of 2000 US troops, stood against the policy of US, leaving a few senior Republicans shocked. The Officials of the United States notified that the details of the withdrawal have not been confirmed, but expect the force to be out of Syria by January.
The decision demanded more information from Trump from Congress and Republicans. This decision was condemned by fellow Republicans who were of the belief that the dismissal of the United States will strengthen allies of Syrian Presiden al-Assad, Russia and Iran, in the region.
Trump addressed the issue first time through a video shared on Twitter on Wednesday, referring to the US military officials killed in Syria.
"We have won against ISIS," Trump said. "We've beaten them and we've beaten them badly. We've taken back the land and now it's time for our troops to come back home. I get very saddened when I have to write letters or call parents or wives or husbands of soldiers who have been killed fighting for our country."
He added later, "So our boys, our young women, our men, they're all coming back and they're coming back now. We won, and that's the way we want it." Trump then pointed to the sky and said, "And that's the way they want it."
Trump further said that the USA is getting nothing but spending precious lives and trillions of dollars protecting others by being the policeman of the Middle East and that
United States started their air raids in Syria in 2014, calling a war against ISIS and Syrian rebel groups.
