Beat those war drums lol. This deployment is because 3 weeks ago, without shooting at each other, a Russian armored vehicle ran into a US armored vehicle. For you neocons that insist we continue an illegal occupation, the line at Deir Ez Zor hasn't moved. ISIS, funded by our allies, is blowing up Russians on the West side of the line. We still hold all of the precious oil and that isn't going anywhere. The SDF closed the bridges and reinforced their side.

But Trump was just bragging about how he had reduced the number of American troops in Syria.

Hey but Trump succeded in sacrificing the lives of our allies, the Kurds. He will wear that stain on his reputation forever.

He will wear that stain on his reputation forever.

It's not the only "stain" - his "reputation" and his dark soul are covered with them, so how would anybody notice another one?

100 people and six tanks?

I can see the six tanks doing some serious damage. But 100 troops sounds more like an addition to the motor pool.
