National Inretest calls on the U.S. to realize the necessity to withdraw troops from the Middle East as soon as possible. The journal reported that Washington was dragging into the Syrian conflict, as it had been in Vietnam.
In his article, Doug Bandow, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, wrote that the U.S. military intervention in the Syrian conflict could lead to serious consequences. In short, the administration’s slide toward confrontation in Syria policy is mad.
In particular, Bandow stressed that Washington could face direct clashes with Syria’s allies – Iran, Turkey and Russia.
In addition, the he drew attention to the fact that every attempt of the United States to escalate the situation in Syria fundamentally contradicted the promises of the current U.S. president, Donald Trump, who in his election speeches constantly said that the U.S. should avoid any participation in the Middle East regional conflicts.
