Vice President Pence said Tuesday that President Trump is following through on his promise to bring U.S. troops home from Syria and talked up the prospect of a permanent ceasefire in the region.
Pence insisted that a ceasefire the administration helped broker between Turkey and Syria last week has held and claimed Trumps own moves had paved the way for the possibility of a permanent ceasefire.
Earlier today, we received word from the Syrian defense forces commander that all of their military forces have withdrawn from the safe zone under Turkish military control and before I came here, our team was continuing in communicating with both sides in hope that a permanent ceasefire could soon take hold, Pence said in remarks at the Heritage Foundations Honors Gala in Washington, D.C. Those discussions are ongoing.
Thanks to the strong leadership from President Donald Trump, we have an opportunity for a permanent ceasefire, Pence continued, adding, our troops are coming home.

Yea, I guess 18 years in that hell-hole section of the world is enough, regardless of what the Deep State wants.
Bring them all out, not some.
We had no business being in Syria.
Get us out of Afghanistan too.
No one has ever tamed Afghanistan and no one ever will.
confused. i thought they said they re going to Iraq
Rush Limbaugh was pointing out how much money deepstaters make on war and arms sales, etc. they dont want peace and our troops home. Us deplorables kids are expendable so their kids can go to Harvard or Yale. They get rich and the common folks kids come home under the flag. Both sides of the isle are whining and Mitch the turtle is passing a resolution to keep the troops there.
Maybe they’re coming home via Iraq.
We probably don’t have C-17’s, or large transport planes, in Syria.
Iraq doesn’t want them. We should be leaving Iraq, too, at some point.
It was announced they were coming home. Then they were going to Iraq. It’s one or the other.
Bring Them Home!
Bring them ALL home.
We need to push hard on this to strengthen Trump’s hand.
“confused. i thought they said they re going to Iraq”
Iraq said they can’t stay, which Trump probably knew they would since they have been making noises about telling us to remove the troops already there.
If our men had been removed to Turkey they probably would have stayed instead of coming home.
That article is from yesterday before Iraq said they couldn’t stay.
Should have left Iraq and moved into Syria. But Trump knows best.
Good news! Now let’s repurpose all those great American men and women from being in the military to the oil industry with more fracking so we no longer need any middle east oil. Then the muslims can kill each other as much as they want.
