The US President Donald Trump has been busted and criticized for retracting American forces from Syria.
It was first the Republicans themselves and the showdown with Democrats made the scene extremely ugly when Trump lashed out verbal abuses at the latter.
Trump clearly went against the first formal step lawmakers take to register a criticism. So he went ahead without consent or approval of neither the Republicans nor the Democrats.
Resentment was visible as House Democrats and Republicans voted clearly against American troops be pullout off Syria.
They also urged the administration to contain the fallout from Turkey’s incursion into Syria.
Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo were set to travel to Turkey for talks.
Surprisingly, the statistics showed the one-sided tilt with the House having passed by a 354-to-60 vote and was unanimously backed by Democrats.
They were joined by 129 Republicans, a rare display of GOP opposition to a stance held by the Republican president on a high-profile matter.
Despite a strong no-confidence vote, White House administration officials were all set to head to Ankara for meetings with Turkish leaders.
Undoubtedly, the mission was clouded with uncertainty as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan continued to rebuffed calls for a cease-fire and Trump said the Turkish assault had “nothing to do with us.”
What is also being seen as unfair is the way American troops have deserted their strategic posts in Northern Syria, leaving the Kurdish forces to fend for themselves.
Kurdish forces had been supported by American troops for more than seven years and were depending on them to be able to withhold the baton against Assad led offensive and Russian forces.
The U.S. military informed the House of Congress that two F-15E jet fighters carried out an airstrike to destroy an ammunition-storage facility, latrines, tents and other parts of the Syria headquarters of the U.S. campaign to destroy Islamic State after pulling its forces from the base.
