BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – The U.S. will not be providing any reconstruction funds to Syria until all Iranian troops are withdrawn from the country, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a press conference in Cairo on Thursday.

According to Pompeo, the US will work with allies to “expel every last Iranian boot” from Syria.

Pompeo continued that due to former President Barakat Obama’s Middle East policies, Iran was able to strengthen their presence inside the region.

The U.S. Secretary of State would then add that the U.S. will not retreat from its terror fight until all Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) and Al-Qaeda terrorists were eradicated.

“America will not retreat until the terror fight is over. We will labor tirelessly alongside you to defeat ISIS, al-Qaeda and other jihadists that threaten our security and yours,” he added.

According to cowboy Pompeo, Iran is a bigger threat to Syria than both Daesh & their buddies in Idlib province. Based on this, the real cancer in the Middle East is the Knesset….fact.

Pompeo knows very well who created Daesh : former Qaeda Zarqawi and… Qassem Soleimani, the boss of IRGC’s “Quds Force” all this with the blessing of Khamenei and the support of Saddam’s general al-Douri who withdrew from the alliance after the fall of Mosul. Iran has patterned its geopolitical expansion strategy on Alexander the Great, by creating fake enemies for everyone and having others etting exhausted at fighting ’em… Solemani surely had the idea by reading Machiavelli but if it works in the Mid-East, you don’t fool western leaders with it since all serious ones also read Machiavelli 😉 You… Read more »

There are several REAL cancers in the Mid-East. Knesset is just a scapegoat for these. The metastasises are : Islam; generalised corruption, poverty of most of populations even if the country is VERY rich, lack of freedoms (all but Israel are dictatorships under disguises).
A fact : as long as you don’t fück with Israelis, they won’t fück with you, and their relations with Egypt and Jordan PROVE THIS for several decades.
Now if you fück with ’em, they will kick your bütt and the hard way, but hey, YOU asked for this so stop complaining… Fact.

America is like a sociopathic schizophrenic – one day they’re leaving, the next day they’re back, giving death threats.

The US/Turk/Gulf axis of terror is the reason why Iran sent boots.
