Déjà Vu? Trump Claims “Mission Accomplished” As Haley Says No Withdraw From Syria In Sight Until All “Goals Accomplished”, More Russian Sanctions On The Way
Since 2013, Donald Trump railed against the Obama Administration’s misguided involvement in Syria. Frequently pointing out what a lose/lose situation Syria presents the US. Trump was so vehemently against our involvement in the backward country that the Daily Caller actually compiled a list of all the times Donald Trump warned against involvement.
We should stay the hell out of Syria, the "rebels" are just as bad as the current regime. WHAT WILL WE GET FOR OUR LIVES AND $ BILLIONS?ZERO

@walaa_3ssaf No, dopey, I would not go into Syria, but if I did it would be by surprise and not blurted all over the media like fools.

Well, apparently a lot can change… almost overnight. This morning, President Trump was much criticized for his “Mission Accomplished” tweet that brought back memories of President George Bush standing in front of the now infamous sign as he declared U.S. involvement was a major success. That war dragged on for ALMOST A DECADE and cost the American taxpayer over 2.4 TRILLION.
The Syrian raid was so perfectly carried out, with such precision, that the only way the Fake News Media could demean was by my use of the term “Mission Accomplished.” I knew they would seize on this but felt it is such a great Military term, it should be brought back. Use often!

This is certainly beginning to feel a lot like déjà vu.
During a Fox News Appearance, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley declared that the US “would not pull its troops out of Syria until its goals were accomplished.” We currently have 2,000 troops stationed in the backward country. These moves by the Trump Administration stand in opposition to Trump’s own words just a few weeks prior. At an Ohio rally, the president was quoted as declaring “let other people take care of [Syra] now” and emphasized we would “be coming out of Syria” soon. Guess not…
