Trump pushes withdrawal from 'endless' Afghanistan, Syria wars

Trump says he would send US troops back to Syria should ISIS regain strength 'I'm Not Telegraphing Anything': Trump Defends Talk Of Troop Withdrawals

Trump Sunday that "They [intelligence officials] said they were mischaracterized", though none have claimed as much publicly.

He played down the danger of an extremist resurgence, but said, "We'll come back if we have to".

As a result of that intelligence assessment under the Bush administration, Trump said the USA spent $7 trillion in the Middle East and lost hundreds of lives.

Members of the Maghawir al-Thawra Syrian opposition group receive firearms training from US Army Special Forces soldiers at the al-Tanf military outpost in southern Syria on October 22, 2018. The projectiles, which were made in Iran, were set to fire 15 minutes before they were disabled. "But you're not going to keep armies there because you have a few people".

Iraq's deputy parliament speaker quickly responded to Trump's comments, saying the American president had committed a "blatant and overt violation of sovereignty and national will" by declaring the USA would use Iraqi soil to spy on neighbours. We have very fast airplanes, we have very good cargo planes.

"All I want to do is be able to watch", Trump replied.

The Ain al-Asad military base in Iraq to which Trump was referring was almost the site of a deadly attack over the weekend.

"Guess what? Those intel people didn't know what the hell they were doing, and they got us tied up in a war that we should have never been in".

The US military presence in Iraq, he said, is "perfectly situated for looking at all over different parts of the troubled Middle East".

He said some of the forces moving out of Syria will go to the base in Iraq and "ultimately some will be coming home". "And we've spent seven trillion dollars in the Middle East and we have lost lives".

An ally of the USA in defeating remaining pockets of Islamic State terrorists in the country, Iraq has found itself under increased pressure as tensions between the Trump administration and Iran grow after the U.S. claimed Tehran was not sticking to the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal.

In the most recent example, the president hit out at heads of major intelligence agencies over their threat assessment of North Korea and Iran. "But we'll see what happens".

Iraqi legislators told Reuters news agency that the two leaders had disagreed over where their planned meeting should take place: Trump had asked to meet at the military base, an offer Mahdi declined.

He told CBS he would be open to keeping a small number of troops there as well as intelligence operations to monitor for "nests" of militant activity, according to the interview taped on Friday.
