Trump Withdraws U.S. Forces From Syria, Declaring ‘We Have Won Against ISIS’

Even the “liberal” New York Times excoriates American withdrawal from Syria.

My perspective, being of the Vietnam generation, is the following.

The last sentence of Barbara Tuchman’s 1971 book “Stilwell and the American Experience in China,” reads “In the end China went her own way as if the Americans had never come.”  Substitute Syria for China.  When will Americans get over this Pax Americana complex, embedded since 1945, and admit this country is not the world’s policeman?
