Under plan, troops would replace American military contingent after ISIS defeat and help secure countrys north; proposal faces challenges.
WASHINGTONThe Trump administration is seeking to assemble an Arab force to replace the U.S. military contingent in Syria and help stabilize the northeastern part of the country after the defeat of Islamic State, U.S. officials said.
John Bolton, President Donald Trumps new national security adviser, recently called Abbas Kamel, Egypts acting intelligence chief, to see if Cairo would contribute to the effort, officials said.
The initiative comes as the administration has asked Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates to contribute billions of dollars to help restore northern Syria. It wants Arab nations to send troops as well, officials said.

Do any of those countries or military men give a $hit about Syria?
We never learn.
So let’s put the more radical Islamic men in Syria. Sure. Sure.
We cleaned up Iraq a/o 2011. Where were the other Arabs?
Better than OUR troops. Let the muzzies, Arabs deal with it...a great idea we’ve never tried.
Love the openness and support for this on freeper..s.
McCain’s ISIS and Al Qaeda buddies will probably get the contract.
I’m sure glad that those Gold Pooping Unicorns that the Treasury invested in are reproducing and pooping out plenty to pay for some more middle-east “Nation Building”
Arab Spring Act 4!!! WOO HOO!
It’s already been done. It’s called “ISIS” and “moderate rebels”.
Arab Spring Act 4!!! WOO HOO!
Putin’s BFF’s Death to America Iran and Hezbollah in Syria solidifying the Shia Crescent. Even better: Iranian ICBMs aimed at my house.
I thought that after the President had his meeting with Mideast Leaders in Saudi Arabia last year, he might develop a NATO-like organization among the Sunni nations with the Saudi and Egyptian armies being the nucleus. The US would support and train but they would do the fighting. Personally, I like the idea.
Egypt isn’t going to occupy Syria. Both nations hate the Muslim Brotherhood and fight it. Egypt & Syria were united as the United Arab Republic at one point.
My oh my the NeoCons are trying to mess things up.
And the Gulf states aren’t going to occupy Syria. They can’t even beat Yemenis in sandals.
Let the muzzies, Arabs deal with it...a great idea weve never tried.
That’s been Trump’s strategy all along.
Well this will make it all worthwhile.
John Bolton at work.
Saudis can’t fight. They pay Sudanese to fight for them and both the Sudanese & Saudis get slaughtered in Yemen.
More likely this is about paying the terrorists in Aleppo to behave.
Turkey, Sa, etc owe those guys anyway.
Southern Syria is where the action is, whatever action there is.
