The Pentagon inspector general issued a report to Congress saying that the Islamic State is again growing in power in Syria and Iraq, with approximately 14,000 to 18,000 militants. The report specifically said President Donald Trump's decision to rapidly draw down troops in Syria and pull diplomatic staff from Iraq increased instability and allowed the militants to regroup.

That's what he's told us more than once ... about many things.

Before the 2016 election the Washington Post compiled 19 things Trump says he knows more about than the seasoned experts in their fields:

Democrats and MIC beating war drums. Gen. Boots "On the Ground" McCorky will be along shortly to light the fuse.

Nothing to see here - move along.

No, just pointing out how Trump has, yet again, screwed the pooch.

Because he sucks giant balls and everything he does.

But Trump told us he was going to eradicate ISIS in 30 days.

He had a secret plan.

It was to lie constantly and have his dupes make excuses for him.

... The report specifically said President Donald Trump's decision to rapidly draw down troops in Syria and pull diplomatic staff from Iraq increased instability and allowed the militants to regroup. ...

At the time, Pres Trump was told that ISIS would grow back if he lowered the troop levels.

So this outcome should be of no surprise to Pres Trump.

Therefore the question becomes, why did Pres Trump want to make ISIS stronger? What was the goal of his strategy in this?

We shouldn't be overseas. We shouldn't have all these military bases all over the world.

WWII ended in 1945. We still have bases in Germany and Japan.
Korea is over.
Vietnam is over.

Get out of other people's business. Close the bases. Bring home the troops.

If they have a problem with Iraq, let the neighbors deal with it.
Israel? same deal.

Protect our commerce, protect our shipping? Fine. We don't need to be the world's protection.
Let's reduce our military spending to the 2nd in line in spending.

That'll be a massive reduction.

We should never lose sight of the fact that there would be no ISIS had Bush not invaded Iraq. There would be no Al Quaeda had Bush's father not destroyed the Iraqi Army in the Persian Gulf War which was totally based on lies just the the Iraq invasion. Then Joke tries to shift the blame to Democrats....he earns his nickname every time he opens his stupid mouth.

Facts mean little to the orange sloth and why should they? He has made money through fraud and a myriad of dishonest techniques. Trump has declared victory against ISIS and will insist till his last breath that he quickly defeated ISIS, unlike the previous stupid President. It seems 42% of the country will continue to believe what he says, until it becomes impossible to believe him. That will require a recession, control of which is always in the hands of the Federal Reserve.

ISIS was created by George W. Bush and the neocons who led this country to war based on lies, fabrications, and distortions of the truth.

Trump is playing rope-a-dope. When the time is right, he'll swoop in.

At what point will this line of reasoning be applied to the war on drugs?

With the Pentagon wanting to go kill people, lets first defer to the live map.

It seems those 3 little stretches of desert owned by ISIS that don't really have anything in them aren't even connected to Kurd territory.
