EEUU.- El presidente estadounidense, Donald Trump, aseguró este lunes que «es hora de salir de ridículas guerras sin fin» al justificar su anuncio de retirada de tropas de Siria y remarcó que Washington solo librará batallas en su «beneficio».
«Es hora de que nos retiremos de estas ridículas guerras sin fin, muchas de ellas tribales, y devolver a nuestros soldados a casa», sostuvo Trump en un mensaje en su cuenta de Twitter.
«Lucharemos donde sea por nuestro beneficio, y solo lucharemos para ganar.Turquía, Europa, Siria, Irán, Irak, Rusia y los kurdos tendrán que solucionar la situación, y ver qué quieren hacer con los combatientes capturados por el Estado Islámico en su ‘vecindario’«, dijo el mandatario.
President Trump on Monday said it is time to remove the United States from “ridiculous Endless Wars” after he decided to pull back American troops from northern Syria amid an impending Turkish military operation there.
“The Kurds fought with us, but were paid massive amounts of money and equipment to do so. They have been fighting Turkey for decades. I held off this fight for … almost 3 years, but it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home,” Trump tweeted.
“WE WILL FIGHT WHERE IT IS TO OUR BENEFIT, AND ONLY FIGHT TO WIN,” the president added.
Trump, who campaigned on bringing U.S. troops home, has sought to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria. He called for a complete withdrawal last December, but ultimately reversed course amid protest from the Pentagon.
Trump on Monday also repeated his claim that the U.S. has defeated 100 percent of the ISIS caliphate, which has been challenged in the past.
“Turkey, Europe, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Russia and the Kurds will now have to … figure the situation out, and what they want to do with the captured ISIS fighters in their ‘neighborhood.’ They all hate ISIS, have been enemies for years. We are 7000 miles away and will crush ISIS again if they come anywhere near us!” Trump tweeted.
