We helped make this mess. Withdrawing troops abruptly will only bring more harm to the people living in Syria. Doing so would reverse all the efforts of our service people working there. That is a disheartening result for us and those we have been trying to help.
Although there are many complicated issues going on with Syria, Turkey, Russia, Kurdish peoples, and others affected by ISIS, the most important thing is to act in ways that support the safety and welfare of people living in the area.
