Four reasons US troops should pull out of Syria, Iraq ASAP

American and coalition forces deployed in the Middle East have come under attack a whopping 73 times since October 17, according to the US press. The number of strikes against US military deployments has increased amid the Gaza War between the Israel regime Forces and Palestinians, Sputnik reports.

“The regional reverberations of the Israel-Gaza war demonstrate why the White House should scrap, not reinforce, America’s outdated and unnecessarily provocative troop presence in Syria and Iraq,” argued Jason Brownlee, a professor of government at the University of Texas, in his op-ed for the Quincy Institute of Responsible Statecraft website.

Per Brownlee, it’s time for US President Joe Biden to redeploy US forces to a safer position offshore. The academic cites four reasons for that move.

First, the American military presence in Syria and Iraq provides an opportunity for Resistance forces to influence US national strategy by targeting American soldiers in the region, according to the professor.

He draws attention to the fact that some 900 US troops in Syria and 2,500 in Iraq “have been taking fire” from local militias since October 17.

These attacks have led to “approximately 62 US personnel injuries,” as per Deputy Pentagon Press Secretary Sabrina Singh.
