More of Business-As-Usual Trump

WASHINGTON — In a sharp reversal from the positions US President Donald Trump campaigned on, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said today that the United States will maintain an extended military presence in Syria to prevent the return of the so-called Islamic State (IS), deter Iran and to bolster a United Nations-backed political process that would eventually see Syrian President Bashar al-Assad leave.

Tillerson's comments come as the Trump administration has been huddling with allies about how to handle Russia's desire to host a Syria national dialogue in Sochi later this month. Tillerson is expected to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in New York on Friday, a diplomatic source told Al-Monitor.

“We understand that some Americans are skeptical of continued involvement in Syria and question the benefits of maintaining a presence in such a troubled country,” Tillerson said today in a major speech on the way forward in Syria hosted by Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. “However, it is vital for the United States to remain engaged in Syria for several reasons.”

“The United States will continue to remain engaged,” Tillerson said, outlining five key US goals for Syria.

So much for the non-interventionist Trump.

Wake me up after the first $500 billion mark has been reached in the Syria war.

I'm waiting to see how many more porn stars Trump had paid off to keep quiet.

tbf Trump has repeatedly and openly contradicted Tillerson on almost every big matter of foreign policy to date, so this might not be any different.

In fact if Tillerson says that the US is going to do something, it's probably safe to assume that Trump is 2 days away from announcing that the intends to do the exact opposite.

Tricky Tillerson is back in action!

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson visited the new $1 billion U.S. embassy in London on Monday, just days after his boss Donald Trump criticized the move to new diplomatic premises as part of a bad deal agreed by the administration of Barack Obama.

This is great. Trump is the first president who offers the American people a fully transparent government. Instead of contrived tweets worked on for 20 hours by a team of psycholinguists and PR hacks prior to sending (e.g. Clinton and Obama), voters are able to observe and monitor their government in real time.

Another win by Trump in Making America Great Again.

Trump's efforts in improving the notoriously opaque nature of cabinet positions and director of the CIA will be a model for generations!

Are you implying that the Americans will pull out of Syria? Just because he was the one to make the announcement, you think it was solely his pet project?

I suppose anything's possible, but the opposite seems likely to me.
