American Troops Are Pelted with Tomatoes When They Leave Syria

A group of angry Kurds threw vegetables and screamed at our dedicated soldiers as they withdrew from a city at the president's orders

Kurdish residents in the city of Qamishli blocked American forces who were trying to withdraw from northern Syria.

The group of ungrateful Kurds had the audacity to throw tomatoes at our troops as they drove by.

Their anger came after President Donald Trump ordered the U.S. to leave Syria and come home.

We were only supposed to be there for three weeks.

President Trump has had to face off against warmongers in both parties over his decision to bring troops home from Syria.

When do you think the country should re-open and get back to work?

The good news, however, is that the American people agree with him — and support the decision to leave the war-torn region.

And after seeing this video, you will likely agree as well, I believe.

The fighting in the Middle East will go on forever … whether we’re there or not, in my view.

We have issues at home — and it’s high time our elected officials started caring as much about our borders and border issues as they do about Syria’s.

We had a Republican-controlled Congress for how long, and they did nothing to secure our borders, as I see it; but they’ll all kick and scream over Syria’s.

(Is this because some of their defense contract buddies will lose money and they’ll get fewer donations?)

There should be no more dead Americans to line the pockets of the neocon elites, in my view.
