Trump Pulls Troops From Syria – What Happens Next?
In my article from April, I explained why I did not believe President Trump would increase our military presence in Syria. Now that he has announced a pullout of troops in Syria and the drawdown of troop strength in Afghanistan, it’s time to evaluate where things may be headed.
There’s no shortage of criticism of President Trump’s decision from both the left and the right—from military leaders as well as politicians. Most who disagree with the President have expressed their criticism as a fear that terrorists will be emboldened by our withdrawal from the region and the situation will worsen after we leave.
As Northwest Prophetic says, “True, but irrelevant.”
Terrorist activity may indeed worsen in the region after we leave. But is it actually our problem? Are we morally obligated to continue sending thousands of Americans men and women to die in the middle east over the next 20 years simply because a terrorist cell may gain a foothold? At what point does it become the responsibility of middle east nations to provide for and ensure their own security?
We’ve been engaged in one war after another in the middle east. General Wesley Clark said it was because a few high ranking people in the Pentagon decided that continued war would become our unofficial foreign policy. We elected Donald Trump because he promised to end that foreign policy.
Trump permitted Defense Secretary Mattis to continue the war in Syria for only one reason: to bomb the hell out of ISIS. That objective has been accomplished.
Now that ISIS has been decimated, Trump is doing what he promised to do. He’s bringing our troops home. Mattis didn’t agree with that policy decision and offered his resignation.
Unlike past Presidents, Trump isn’t under the thumb of the Pentagon, Congress or the deep state. They have no leverage over him and they can’t control him. The policy of endless war that has enriched the military-industrial complex and its parasites is over. Their hysterical fear mongering proves that they know it’s over.
I trust Trump’s judgment regarding foreign policy because he has a proven track record. From re-building America’s military to destroying ISIS, ending the Iran deal, attempting to secure the southern border with no help from the courts and Congress and negotiating the denuclearization of North Korea (which no one thought possible), Trump has consistently proven the naysayers wrong. His critics, by the way, are the ones who created the problems he’s had to fix.
The CIA’s presence in Asia has been a destabilizing influence. Their overthrow of Iran’s Prime Minister in 1953 established their unspoken policy of regime change. Since then, the agency has managed to gain leverage over governmental leaders around the world through a campaign of carefully managed wars.
Qanon tipped us off in March that the CIA’s influence in North Korea had finally been removed. The removal of their leverage over Kim Jong-un paved the way for Trump to negotiate peace with him.
Following that model, I would assume Trump has been systematically removing the CIA’s influence in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iran. If he’s withdrawing troops from the region, I would assume it’s because peace negotiations are coming (if not already underway).
I stumbled across an old post from Q this week that has given me hope. It indicates that Trump’s long-term plan is to dismantle the CIA. It’s too corrupt to be cleaned. Q said the agency’s operations will be transferred to the NSA. (I would assume CIA Chief Gina Haspel is in on the plan or she would not have been chosen as director.) If true, it may explain why Trump is confident that he can bring our troops home without the risk of reigniting wars or increasing terrorism.
Saudi Arabia desperately wants to be viewed as the leader in the Middle East. President Trump has been working closely with Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to make that a reality. (I suspect the recent debacle over Khashoggi was a CIA operation intended to damage their budding relationship.) Saudi Arabia just announced it will deploy additional troops to Syria to help the Kurdish fighters. The UAE is also sending more troops. Trump seems to have convinced his allies that if they want to be seen as the region’s leaders, it will require them to step up and do their part to help keep the peace.
“So to summarize: President Trump withdraws U.S. troops from Syria, and leverages his relationship with MbS to step up to replace them, thereby eliminating any concern that Turkey might take hostile action toward our Kurdish allies in Northern Syria.”
Doesn’t make sense that Mattis would pivot on Syria because there is too many more issues in this big department he is involved in so many issues and affects discisionson so multiple levels
Maybe Mattis is going to judge tribunals
Exactly. My first thoughts with his decision to “leave.”
That is exactly what I thought when I heard it. Mattis and Kelly both are likely reassigned to the very important military tribunals.
Yep, I thought the same thing.
I agree with you Peggy. I saw CTH comments on DOJ & did not agree with him there, yet nice disinformation to deep state.
Trump needs to keep doing what he is doing. Why are the Americans trying to police the whole world? With my country (UK, England) tagging along! Peace not war is the only solution, the ‘Old Guard’ and their ‘new world order’ dreams have to be shattered into a million pieces! Just like the CIA. WWG1WGA Worldwide.
Thank you, kevykev79. Your words are so true!
Our President is a God Send,genius. prayers many times a day for him??
You are on point as always!
Very helpful analysis, PM. Thank you. ???
I totally agree PM, now for the arrest. The first for me was Clinton, but I have now switched to Comey…
CIA changing leadership, even in America, has gone on far too long — grateful our President is fighting so hard for us and thanking God for giving us ways to climb out of this debacle for it is NOT up to Trump to ‘do it all’ – it’s our job and this is our shift!
So agree with you!
When building a case that will stick, the bit players like Comey have a choice. Why settle for a sweet berry when a whole pie topped with whipped cream sits right before you???
Agreed! 100% CIA – looking forward to the day they are no more! Thank God He exposes all the hidden plots of people!!! Justice is coming! Pray for America!
Great read! Thanks so much.
I aggree with your assement. Your insight is a breath of fresh air! Thanks
Most of this is what I have been saying and thinking, but not so articulately and completely as you have done here. All of these situations like pulling out of Syria and Afghanistan just helps me to see what politicians or others that are behind the CIA’s interest. AND just my opinion, but is Khashoggi really dead? 🙂 I just started following you on youtube about a week or 2 ago. Glad I did. Take care!
Thank you for shedding light on this. Things that are happening around us and not having explanations to them, makes my head spin.
I know we all are trusting the plan…I suppose its just the nature of humans to know more and also knowing these changing issues need some secrecy.
Great help, ty pm
Hear hear (mis spell intended). ??? cp/
David..you are spot on
thank you..like Donna said. “took the words right out of my….heart”..well said..blessings..blessings..Hi Denise
Merging CIA into NSA, what good can that do? “Q said the agency’s operations will be transferred to the NSA”.
Not the agency. The operations that the CIA is responsible for.
Maybe Mattis is leaving so he can do something else.

Rogers departure. Intel.
Sessions departure. Law.
Kelly departure. Warfare/MIL
Mattis departure. Warfare/MIL
Notice a pattern?
He’s hitting it out of the park time after time. Do you think Mattis will be doing something else relevant….like becoming a judge?
Thank you you for what you do.
I agree with every word you said. Beautiful.
I look for your posts every day! I am never disappointed in your analogy! I thank God every day for the Army of God He has put in place and pray for them! I see you as a General in that Army. Thank you, again, PM
THIS IS THE GREAT AWAKENING!!
It is obvious that our president Donald Trump was not put into this position by chance. He has been changing the tide of mis-deception in the world by exposing the lies.
He is a breath of fresh air.
A lot of countries around the world are emboldened by the truths he speaks.
How many people are praying everyday for Donald Trump, and the other leaders in the world to fight for what is right?
THE GREAT AWAKENING!!
This is a spiritual battle.
This is what it took for the United States and other countries to wake up.
This is the worlds last chance to change course from our dark baby killing society too LIGHT.
I thank God for the strength of president Donald Trump, his family, “Q”, PM, and all the good people around the world who are fighting for TRUTH.
First post. I’m high touch not high tech.
I just felt like I had to express my feelings in what I’m seeing. I’m sorry if I have offended anyone with my frankness.
Good article! On another subject, after months of silence, “Bill Smith” suddenly posted on YouTube, going on & on about how evil Pence is!
Hope to hear something on this subject soon, hopefully something reassuring! I understand disinformation may be necessary, but this is really unsettling. Q doesn’t mention Pence, but his wife got an envelope.
He’s hitting ‘Q’ out of the park every time he goes to bat. I wonder if Mattia will now be on of the judges?
Your insight is excellent and simple, that’s the only reason I could write the above.
Thanks Dave. Yes I agree. And with Mattis all these ‘Mattis was so great.’ ‘Mattis was the clear headed one.’ Will have to eat those words when he is presented at the podium with a handful of indictments- maybe.?♀️
Thank you. Though I read many opinions and research as I am able, you as usual put things in a clear perspective.
I’m worried about what Erdogan might do to the Kurds when our influence is removed from Syria. Will Saudi Arabia defend them?
Thorough review and explanation
Many times I refer babacbabacto the charts provided in your August 12 release.
Thanking God for you & Denise and your commitment to proceed in excellence in all that you do.
hi. . if you can – reduce the pixel size of y our picture so it doesn’t cover your post. . .
Good read, I tend to agree with this assessment, particularly the part about the Khashoggi killing. Other than being just another minor news item for page B-3 of a newspaper (after all, such killings go on with frightening frequency in that part of the world), the MSM has been trying to use this as a cause celbre for reasons I couldn’t fathom… now it makes sense, that the MSM is trying to drive a wedge between POTUS and Saudi Arabia.
I read that perhaps Mattis is needed elsewhere in the near future…..I stand by President Trump. This is bigger than any of us could have imagined….and in 2 yrs I am impressed at what has already been done. God Bless Our President. #wwg1wga
I believe the Saudi Prince MBL is going to step in and fill the void being left by American troop withdrawal. Also, there is enough hardware left in place, as well as personnel, to handle issues with heavy firepower if needed. I trust the plan.
Thank you for your insights!
It seems a group of patriots started this and asked Trump to join.
So the defence became big business. So did Cancer. Who would want to cure cancer it is such a cash cow.
Does Q have any say about the Cancer Society and Pharmaceuticals?
Go to any Q website and put “pharma” in the search window.
The SSA can now finish off ISIS because Russia gave them the 400 system anti aircraft. The US and NATO, and Israel can no longer bomb the Syrian Arab Army when they have the useful CIA tools ISIS in a corner. Also, the White Helmet directed false flag chemical attack movies don’t work anymore. Trump can crow all he wants for political reasons, and reading the posts here, I see it is working, but ISIS was defeated by the Syrian Arab Army, Iran, and Russia. (The only ones legally in Syria.)
5 by 5, How differently we see things when the truth is revealed. The future proves past…I can now see why Q gave out information so we could “discover” the truth for ourselves piece by piece. My prayers are with the President and our Country.
Excellent prophetic insight as usual. It’s amazing when God allows you to see the “cloud the size of a man’s hand” and put it all into words for us.
As you said, Trump made it very clear while campaigning that he wanted out of Syria and Afghanistan. Mattis knew that so I’m struggling to believe that Trump would have hired him knowing Mattis would not want to bring our troops home, and that he resigned for that reason. I’m also guessing Mattis has another job waiting for him. Military tribunals? NSA?
I see no reason to be in Syria. Terrorism is at our borders and terrorists have entered our government. Focus on the real enemy.
It makes sense that President Trump would leave Syria. The nations identified in Ezekiel 38 are readily available to come down to attack Israel “to take spoils”. The USA is not present. Despite Trump’s promise and heartfelt desire to be there for Israel during difficult times, the USA and no one else comes to help Israel. It is like Almighty God wants everyone else out of the way so that He can destroy those armies that have come against Israel (Ezekiel 39). Through His actions, the nations will know that He is Almighty God and Israel belongs to Him. I have a feeling that President Trump might be aware of things that we don’t know. Maybe there is a real reason why our troops really need to be home.
Very well written and easy to follow! Thank you PM for sharing your thoughts and at times talking us off the ledge! Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Wonderful! Totally agree PM! Merry Merry Christmas!!! To you and yours……Oh it feels so good to be saying that and hearing it back!!!
[D] Day = Extra Non-UN ‘peacekeepers’!
“(I suspect the recent debacle over Khashoggi was a CIA operation intended to damage their budding relationship.)”
What is the basis for this suspicion? How does anyone that sits where we do get their ideas about what is going on at that level? There is a whole separate reality being created by these suspicions (Sessions, Huber, Declassification, Tribunals, etc.) with very few facts in the public record to support them. The suspicions I see get more and more fantastic each day when placed up against the unfulfilled expectations of the Q community.
This time, we got to see the playbook in action. Almost immediately on the heels of news about the Kashoggi murder, there was press rumors that Prince bin Salman was responsible. I recall at the time wondering what the basis of the rumors would have been, since there were few facts known. After the public had been softened up by the rumors, the Washington Post (linked > Jeff Bezos > Amazon > CIA) came out with the usual anonymously-sourced disclosure from the CIA that bin Salman was implicated by an eavesdropped phone call. It develops that the “intel” comes from Turkey, an unscrupulous enemy of Saudi Arabia and rogue member of NATO. CIA sourcing—why am I not surprised? You can count on one thing: any CIA agent who reveals such intelligence (if it is real) would be in violation of the Espionage Act, for there can be no question that such information would be classified. That being so, the leak to the press is a contrivance—clearly to upset Trump’s foreign policy with regard to Saudi Arabia. At this point, it is unclear what lay behind the murderers. That the CIA might have engendered the murder is a new thought (for me), but not impossible. If the CIA were in cahoots with the Turks, the mysterious intel would be explained.
” If the CIA were in cahoots with the Turks, the mysterious intel would be explained.”
I didn’t think that we were that close with Turkey. Things had been a little rocky in the past year. Audio and video from inside the Saudi Consulate seems possible for the Turks but not for the CIA. Maybe the Turks share with the CIA to get to their enemy (the Saudis). The is not the same thing as saying that this is a CIA operation.
Very good analysis. I would only add that the US is keeping its aviation forces in place. That is an excellent and effective way to control the situation without having to be constantly involved.
Taking care of the Kurds through SA and other locals is Trump-Brilliant!!!
Also, I see this move as a negotiation result between Trump and Putin: Putin gets Syria, Trump gets N.Korea.
Thank you so much for the efforts exerted by you & Denise on our behalf. Have a “Glorious Christmas” and a great 2019! WWG1WGA the remainder of 2018 and into 2019…!
Many well-intended people wanted to ‘police the world”… how many ‘gang warfares’ do we want to police to ‘make them nice’, the cost is huge in dollars, taxes, indebtedness and blood and sorrow of our military. We need to limit our involvement to preventing more nukes and keeping shipping lanes open for us. Europe needs to defend itself and not let us foot the bill for the way things were half a century ago. Russia is not going to run in their and take them over…if anything it wants to sell to them. The world has changed. Our demographics have changed. Treaties need to change. I was born mid last century. Now realize all the hype and lies while we got bogged down in costly wars in dollars and lives destroyed for what?Drug trade has skyrocketed, families destroyed and America turning into an addicted consumers… are we better off from those wars, are we better off from all the political games….sad…and now we are in debt and our children and grandchildren don’t have homes, families or community… I was very “patriotic”…but see how at least the politicians and deep state used that to manipulate us…and now , yes, I do question 911…and all it has brought us. My husband was in reserves and almost had to go to the first Gulf War and we had 3 kids, and I was pregnant and a homeschooling mom. If he had had to go, we would have been in very difficult straights and probably lost our home…(enough voluteered he didn’t have to go).but I remember him saying “I sure hope Bush knows what he is doing”..because he didn’t think the evidence looked right… many thought the same thing…Why are we going into Iraq? Why are we starting a war? again… he was a Vietnam vet… and his father was an AF Colonel…
It’s sad to see many Christians agree with the fake news media that we need more war. I just spoke to my young nephew about leaving syria and how it was good for us to leave a country which we were never invited in. Christians should want peace as we are peace bringers to the lost and warriors against the demonic. The wars have not made it easier for the christians in the region or missionaries.
Perhaps off topic but interesting read nonetheless in terms of fears regarding Foundations by Justice Brandeis: https://archive.org/stream/FoundationsTheirPowerAndInfluenceReneAWormser1958/Foundations,%20America%20-%20Foundations;%20Their%20Power%20and%20Influence%20-%20Rene%20A%20Wormser%20%281958%29_djvu.txt
Praying Medic I think you are right on the mark as usual. “Unsolvable” problems in the Middle East requiring our military presence, like any “unsolvable” problems, are not natural nor innate, but MANUFACTURED. The solution is always to trace back to the “hidden hands” manufacturing the problem in the first place, and remove them. There’s a chance that Mattis is going on to the Military Tribunals or another role, as his Christmas mentioned “Storm clouds loom” and also mentioned Washington crossing the Delaware, both of which echo Q and POTUS. In this case, it’s possible that the conflict between Mattis and POTUS is theater/disinformation or even trolling by the masters of the art.
The Middle East will settle down without CIA meddling. Syrian women are rising up demanding their men return from Europe and rebuild their country. I still trust our President, and am hoping and praying the incitement stories are true, and that they begin soon. Above all, I’ve read The Book, and I know that, in the end, we win.
Thank you PM!!! I pray for you, frequently.
Hi Praying medic Thank again… Been following you on youtube.. been a bit quiet there was a bit worried as a mention was made on a Mark Taylor vid about attacks on you..
Anyway great post re Trump pulling Troops from Syria, With the southern treat and now more “caravans” threatened looks like Trump could be needing those troops at home…
Many here in NZ are catching on re Potus and Qanon, met a lady on a shop the other day who is very hooked (as am I) on Your vids and whatever we can find re the truth,,
God bless you and your wife..
Thank you sir, for your insight, it is very helpful to understand the not always understandable Q! That said, the biggest frustration I feel (and I suspect I’m not aloe in this) is the timeline. Little seems to be happening. It may be that a lot is happening behind the scenes, but sparse little seems to be happening in the visible spectrum. That is most frustrating to me. The Deep State and their ilk have run rampant too long. It’s time we start filling the jails with these traitors, but that does not seem to be happening. Frustration in the extreme.
The Muller debacle is one good example. This traitorous man has broken so many laws if boggles the mind, yet he seems to do so with impunity. How much longer must we patriots sit idly by while the Deep State destroys our Country? Answers to questions like this would be greatly appreciated by everyone I’m sure.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord shine his face upon and give you his peace now and forever more. Thank you PM. Your work is of great significance. Praying for good and against evil. Bless this nation Lord. Help us. Amen
I agree with your assessment, and suspected from the start that the Khashoggi incident was a desperation ploy by the CIA to upset Trump’s grand plan in the Middle East.
