More Dinero for the Wall! Trump freezing Syria funds in signal of US pullback

President Donald Trump is freezing more than $200 million in funds for recovery efforts in war-torn Syria amid a reassessment of the role the U.S. should play in the drawn-out conflict there, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The White House ordered the State Department to put the funds on hold, the report said. According to The Journal, Trump did so after reading a news report saying that the U.S. had recently committed an additional $200 million to early recovery efforts.

Exiting Secretary of State Rex Tillerson pledged the money in February in Kuwait at a meeting of the coalition trying to defeat the Islamic State (ISIS).

  1. Freezing Palestine's; freezing Syria's when it was the
    usual war mongers who caused all the destruction and yet
    they still get theirs. Yes, war is a racket.

  2. Neither side in Syria looks very good or innocent. And in a case where neither side looks good the best thing is to stay out of it.

    1. We certainly have no business there since we weren't invited as Russia was and the existing government is recognized worldwide. Just imagine if Russia set up bases in Mexico and Canada.

  3. Right about Russia being invited.
