WASHINGTON — President Trump visited American military forces in Iraq on Wednesday, a surprise trip and the first visit to troops stationed abroad in a combat zone by a commander in chief who has made withdrawing the United States from foreign wars a signature issue.

The trip, shrouded in secrecy, came in the midst of a government shutdown and less than a week after Mr. Trump disrupted America’s military status quo and infuriated even some of his staunchest political allies by announcing plans to withdraw troops from Syria and about half of those stationed in Afghanistan. That decision on Syria, made over the objections of American military generals and civilian advisers, led to the resignation of Mr. Trump’s defense secretary, Jim Mattis, and fueled tensions within the national security establishment.

The place Mr. Trump chose to visit is the one theater of war where he has not promised a rapid drawdown of forces — and it is where he claims his greatest military victory, the defeat of the Islamic State in Mosul, the Iraqi city where the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the beginning of its self-proclaimed caliphate. The assault on Mosul by Iraqi forces, backed by Americans, began under President Barack Obama but culminated in the summer of 2017 under Mr. Trump.

Mr. Trump, who was accompanied by his wife, Melania Trump, was expected to make two stops on his post-Christmas trip, delivering a holiday message to the more than 5,000 American forces stationed in the country.

 

“President Trump and the First Lady traveled to Iraq late on Christmas night to visit with our troops and Senior Military leadership to thank them for their service, their success, and their sacrifice and to wish them a Merry Christmas,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House spokeswoman, said in a tweet.

Visiting troops abroad is a cherished tradition for presidents. President George W. Bush served Thanksgiving turkey to the soldiers in Baghdad in 2003, in the early days of the Iraq War. Mr. Obama flew to Baghdad in April 2009, four months after his inauguration, winning cheers when he told the troops it was time for the Iraqis to take responsibility for their own country. He visited Afghanistan four times while in office.

But nearly two years into his presidency, Mr. Trump had yet to visit any troops abroad, drawing criticism from various corners.

After he canceled a rainy-day visit to an American cemetery outside of Paris last month during a World War I battlefield commemoration, he told Chris Wallace, the Fox News anchor, that he had not visited troops abroad because of “an unbelievably busy schedule.”

Mr. Trump ran for the presidency on a platform of bringing the troops home from Afghanistan and Syria, part of a broader strategy of ending nearly two decades of American military interventions — from Iraq and Libya to Syria and Afghanistan — that he criticized as costly, ineffective and at odds with his “America First” foreign policy.

But the United States still has 14,000 troops in Afghanistan and about 2,000 in Syria. While the number of casualties in these conflicts is a fraction of what it was during the two previous administrations, the fact that American troops are still on the ground — in the case of Afghanistan, 17 years after they were first deployed — attests to the difficulty of extracting the country from these entanglements.

Mr. Trump’s trip came at a sensitive moment, as the president’s clash with Mr. Mattis over the troop withdrawals opened a rift between the commander in chief and the military.

Over the weekend, Brett McGurk, the special presidential envoy to the coalition fighting the Islamic State, accelerated his resignation, telling colleagues that he could not in good conscience carry out Mr. Trump’s newly declared policy of withdrawing American troops from Syria. Mr. McGurk, a seasoned diplomat who was considered central to the fight against the terrorist group, had originally planned to retire in February.

Mr. Trump’s announcements on Syria and Afghanistan have left a trail of confusion, with White House officials unable to explain the timetable for the withdrawals or their strategy to prevent a return of radical extremism in either country.

Adding to the sense of uncertainty is the partial shutdown of the government, which does not affect active-duty military but had led Mr. Trump to cancel his holiday visit to his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, and remain sequestered in the White House.

On Christmas, Mr. Trump and Melania Trump, the first lady, made calls from the West Wing to troops stationed abroad, though he was criticized in the media for being the first president since 2002 not to visit troops or wounded warriors on the holiday.

Mr. Trump says he has “done more for the military” than many of his recent predecessors but had not made visiting active duty military personnel a priority.

Trump visits Iraq in first trip to combat zone as president

President Trump made an unannounced trip Tuesday to Iraq, his first visit to troops in a combat zone as president.

"President Trump and the First Lady traveled to Iraq late on Christmas night to visit with our troops and Senior Military leadership to thank them for their service, their success, and their sacrifice and to wish them a Merry Christmas," press secretary Sarah Sanders wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

Trump had come under intense criticism for not visiting U.S. troops fighting overseas. Before heading to Florida for Thanksgiving, Trump vowed he would visit troops, but did not specify a date or specific location.

“I'm going to a war zone,” the president told reporters at the time.

Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama both made unannounced visits while in office to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Trump’s trip comes during a tense time for the commander in chief and his national security officials, who have been critical of the president's decision to abruptly withdraw troops from Syria, draw down U.S. presence in Afghanistan and push out widely respected Defense Secretary James Mattis.

The White House was eerily quiet before Trump's visit was made public. Many staff offices were empty with the lights off, and no Marine was stationed by the door of the West Wing, suggesting the president was not in the Oval Office.

Trump did not tweet on Wednesday after spending Christmas Eve and Christmas Day blasting out messages from his account.

President Trump used the cover of the partial government shutdown to slip off to visit US troops in Iraq.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump met with military personnel on Wednesday at Al Asad Air Base in Iraq, according to photos from Reuters.

His whereabouts sparked speculation about what Trump was up to because he hadn’t tweeted in more than 17 hours, no press aides were in the media office and lights were turned off on the second floor where White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has her office.

It is the first time Trump has visited troops in a war zone since becoming president.

The president was accompanied by first lady Melania Trump on the unannounced trip.

A Reuters photographer captured images of the president and first lady meeting with U.S. service members in a room adorned with Christmas decorations.

“President Trump and the First Lady traveled to Iraq late on Christmas night to visit with our troops and Senior Military leadership to thank them for their service, their success, and their sacrifice and to wish them a Merry Christmas,” tweeted White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Mr. Trump made the long journey to Iraq a week after ordering the pullout of 2,000 U.S. troops from neighboring Syria.

The White House revealed a surprise visit by US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania to Iraq to meet US troops there and thank them for his service on the occasion of Christmas. 

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders published a picture of Tramp and Germany among US soldiers, saying they had traveled to Iraq to visit US troops and thanked them for their service, success, sacrifices and congratulations on the occasion of the Christmas celebrations. 

On his first visit to US soldiers in conflict zones, Trump said at the Assad Air Base west of Baghdad that he had no plans to withdraw US troops from Iraq. 

He said Trump that "can be used Iraq as a base if we want to do something in Syria."

Trump defends Syria policy during surprise visit with U.S. troops in Iraq

President Donald Trump takes a photo with a U.S. service member during an unannounced trip to Al Asad Air Base in Iraq on Dec. 26, 2018.

 

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump defended his decision to withdraw troops from Syria during a surprise visit to Iraq on Wednesday to meet with U.S. troops, his first encounter with soldiers serving under his command in a combat zone. 

Trump's journey, cloaked in secrecy during a government shutdown, comes as he is weighing a major reduction in forces in the the 17-year-old conflict in Afghanistan, has ordered the withdrawal of roughly 2,000 U.S. troops in Syria and is overseeing a shakeup in the top rungs of military leadership.

“The United States cannot continue to be the policeman of the world,” Trump told reporters traveling with him in Iraq. "We don’t want to be taken advantage of any more by countries that use us and use our incredible military to protect them."

Trump and first lady Melania Trump left the Washington region late Christmas night. Air Force One flew overnight and landed under the cover of darkness Wednesday at Joint Base al Asad, west of Baghdad. Trump spent about three hours on the ground in Iraq, meeting with soldiers in a dining hall and addressing a large group of troops in a hangar. 

“We’re no longer the suckers, folks,” Trump told the troops, according to the Associated Press. “We’re respected again as a nation.”

Trump was criticized this year for failing to visit with front-line troops earlier in his presidency. President Barack Obama traveled to Iraq shortly after taking office and President George W. Bush visited Baghdad in 2003 months after the Iraq war began.

"Two years in, Trump was going to get flak for going or not going," said Aaron David Miller, a former State Department Middle East negotiator for Republican and Democratic presidents. "And clearly those troops who will hear him will be glad he came."

The timing of the president's visit followed bipartisan alarms over a series of abrupt decisions upending U.S. foreign policy. Trump announced last week that he would withdraw troops from Syria and then parted ways with Defense Secretary Jim Mattis days later.

Trump is also considering a significant reduction in forces in Afghanistan, USA TODAY and other outlets reported last week. The moves in Syria and Afghanistan were consistent with promises Trump made during his campaign, but they unsettled some lawmakers because they appeared to be made over the objection of military advisers. 

Trump described how he gave military leaders several “extensions” to finish their work in Syria.

“They said again, recently, 'Can we have more time?' I said, ‘Nope. You can’t have any more time. You’ve had enough time,'" Trump said. 

"We’ve knocked them out," Trump said of ISIS in Syria. "We’ve knocked them silly."

There are about 5,000 U.S. troops in Iraq, advising Iraqi forces who are fighting ISIS militants who nearly overran the country in 2014. The Iraqi army fled its posts during that onslaught. Sustained pressure from air strikes by a U.S.-led coalition helped Iraqi and Kurdish ground forces turn them back.

 

Small remnants of ISIS units remain in Iraq, and the U.S troops there also assist American units in Syria battling ISIS. 

The force in Iraq is a fraction of the 170,000 American forces that fought a countrywide insurgency there in 2007. The withdrawal of U.S. troops was accelerated during the Obama administration, only to be returned to current levels after the rise of ISIS. 

Trump maintains he opposed the invasion of Iraq in 2003, but his own statement prior to the war contradict that. 

The president's unexpected trip to Iraq comes after he took heat for not doing such a visit earlier. Trump told reporters in November that "I’m going to a war zone,” a declaration that followed a decision to skip a pair of military-themed events.

While traveling in Paris, Trump canceled a trip to an American cemetery about 50 miles away for an event that marked the 100th anniversary of the armistice that ended fighting in World War I. Aides said weather made a helicopter trip too dangerous. 

Trump returned to Washington two days later but did not make a visit to Arlington National Cemetery for a traditional Veterans Day event. Trump later told Fox News that "I should have done that,” and made an unscheduled stop at the cemetery on Dec. 15.

 

Vice President Mike Pence made a surprise visit to Afghanistan last year.  

 

Mattis announced last week he was stepping down as Defense secretary at the end of February over disagreements with Trump ranging from Syria to global alliances and sparking deep anxiety among lawmakers about national security.

 

Trump on Sunday said deputy defense secretary Patrick Shanahan will take over sooner than expected. A Pentagon spokeswoman said Shanahan would become acting Defense secretary on Jan. 1. Trump, meanwhile, has named Army Gen. Mark Milley as a replacement for Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

A telephone call between Mr. Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi and US President Donald Trump

 

 

 

 

27 - December - 2018


 

The US authorities have informed the Iraqi authorities of the desire of US President Donald Trump to visit Iraq on the evening of December 26 to congratulate the new Iraqi government and to visit the US military within the coalition forces supporting Iraq in the fight against the Daash and the Iraqi government welcomed the request. 

It was supposed to be a formal reception and a meeting between the Prime Minister, Mr. Adel Abdul Mahdi and the US President, but a divergence of views to organize the meeting led to the replacement by a telephone conversation on developments in the situation, especially after the US president's decision to withdraw from Syria, Security and stability of the peoples and countries of the region. The Prime Minister welcomed the US President and invited him to visit Baghdad. He also called on the Prime Minister to visit Washington. The two sides agreed to continue to strengthen the common relations between the two countries. 

The visit of the US president and the first lady included congratulations to the American military at the Iraqi base of Ain al-Asad in Anbar on the occasion of Christmas.

The head of a powerful Iraqi militia that enjoys backing from Iran is threatening to expel U.S. forces from Iraq after an unannounced visit by President Donald Trump to American troops stationed in the country.

 

Qais Khazali, the head of the Asaib Ahl al-Haq militia, promised on Twitter that Iraq’s parliament would vote to expel U.S. forces from Iraq, or the militia and others would force them out by “other means.”

 

Trump spent three hours at a U.S. air base in western Iraq with troops. He did not meet with any Iraqi officials.

 

Khazali is an avowed opponent of the U.S. who rose to prominence as a leader in the Shiite insurgency against the U.S. occupation. He was detained by British and U.S. forces in Iraq from 2007 to 2010.

 

Asaib Ahl al-Haq is represented in Iraq’s parliament by the Binaa bloc, one of the two rival coalitions which together control nearly all the seats in the lawmaking body.

Apologies, got carried away.

 

Recall the Movie " Shooter " ? Marl Wahlberg, Ned Beatty as the Senator " The Truth is what I say it is !"   I would suggest to anyone here viewing the 3 part movie series " Zeitgeist " - it's a real eye opener as to whom really Runs the World, the Puppet Masters and ALL the Puppets.

I Think things are changing and I feel people have had it with the BS those in the Swamp want and how they want to Rule....France is in an uproar with the Yellow Vest, Spain , Belgium, Germany and a few others countries are starting to fight back....

 

Today I ran across the New People of California.....Yellow Vest are starting to push back against the way Moonbeam and newsom want to/have run things.

 

 

You don't have to be a Battle Trained, Dyed in Blood Warrior to take a stand....To Stand up for what is Right. 200 Years ago it was Farmers, Lawyers, Tailors, Blacksmiths and Common People that took a Stand against a Radical Tyrant that what to Rule them....Then it was a 2 or 3 cent Tax on Tea.....Look what you are taxed on today and what those in Power Still Want to Tax as well as Take Away.

 

Those in Power want to Stay in Power to become Rich and it you don't believe it look into the net worth of Schumer, Pelosi, waters, obama and the rest.......They sure as well didn't get there working for the American People.

 

We now have a President running the show....1st one since Regan that cared about the American People (note, they tried to kill him) before that the last President that cared for the American People was a Democrat, John F. Kennedy (they did manage to kill him) No if the truth were known and the FBI was real.......They would not have wiped Strzok or his Mistress Lisa Pages phones other than than there were text messages there about a plan to assassinate then Candidate Trump if need be.

 

It is time for everyone to reach deep down inside and figure out just what it is you want, what you want for you family.....You want the America your parent had, what your grandfathers and Grandmother were Proud Enough to go off the war at the age of 18-22 years old and fight in in Europe, Rosie the Riveter, ladies that piloted planes across the country to where they where needed.....You need to ask your selves where you will be in 5 years the way this country in going......

 

Kids that don't care about the American Flag, Kids that refuse to say The Pledge of Allegiance, football players that take a knee, Hollyweird stars that condone pedophilia just so they could get ahead and they ***** about it later #MeTo and I could go on and on for hours.

 

Seriously....what the hell has happened to America, to Americans and the American Way of Life, the American Dream?

 

We can't fly the American Flag as it might offend Muslims. We can't wear a Red Hat that says MAGA because it triggers some people.....What the hell is Triggered? Can't cook Bacon, can't have a Cross, can't drink beer or wear a bikini (okay I don't) There are more You Can't Today because it Will Offend Someone.

 

As I see it America and Americans are at a 4 way Intersection they they have gone through 800 miles of rough and rocky road. 200 miles ago things changed, new tires , a service and back on the road and things are going pretty smooth at last. Then the 4 way stop and a left hand turn leads to liberals kids running the show, hat 2 weeks ago their mother was wiping their butts.... no more free speech, no 2nd ad, Safe safes and bubble rooms with petting bunnies. . A right hand turn and in leads to Sharia law, no Rights, no religion, no hotdogs, bacon or beer. ladies has no rights what so ever and can be raped just because starting at the age of 8......Your wife has no rights and can be raped just because she was going to work.......

 

You all had better wake up as this is what those want the future to be......

 

Ya, damn right, I don't have any real time Combat Experience, Have I trained and made a mindset for myself...Check. Have I prepared for the worst and prayed for the Best.....Check.  Am I willing to ..........a Life....I don't want to but I will to save all that I love and care for.

 

I don't carry a damn gun everyday just for fun nor do I ever want to use it...I avoid problems but if the issue comes to me I will have to fight back.
