LevinTV host Mark Levin began his radio show Wednesday evening reacting to President Trump’s decision to start withdrawing U.S. troops from Syria.
Calling the decision “absolutely shocking,” Levin explained the geopolitical dynamics of the civil war in Syria.
“There are Christian populations. There are Yazidi populations. There are our allies, the Kurds, who have fought shoulder to shoulder with us. The Russians have sought to take over Syria and control that region of the world. Iran is using Syria to build military bases and military roads to heavily arm Hezbollah, one of the largest terrorist groups on the face of the earth.”
“Turkey. Erdogan is a genocidal dictator, an Islamic fascist, who murders journalists, imprisons journalists. … He too has designs on Syria, and he wishes to wipe out completely our allies, the Kurds.”
Levin praised President Trump for his multipronged, aggressive strategy against the Iranian regime, noting that Tehran, as the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, has its eyes set on expansion. "We must protect the Christians, the Yazidis, our allies the Kurds; we must not permit, as the president himself has said, Iran [to build] its caliphate."
“So when the president today announced, in Obama-like fashion, unilateral, immediate withdrawal of 2,000 American special forces, I was shocked,” Levin added.
