It's Chutzpah to Blame Trump for Syria

David P. Goldman, PJ Media

President Trump's withdrawal of 2,000 U.S. Special Forces from Syria elicited a chorus of self-righteous denunciations from the foreign policy Establishment, as well as expressions of concern from his supporters. Coming from the neo-conservatives, that is chutzpah, a Yiddish-Aramaic word that connotes unmitigated gall. It was the neo-cons, not Trump, who created the present mess in Syria that Trump must address as best he can. The U.S. needs to step back from playing whack-a-mole with current problems and concentrate on restoring our technological edge. For the time being, President Trump has raised the probability of a major war on Israel's northern borders with Lebanon and Syria.
