PARIS (Reuters) - French President Emmanuel Macron on Sunday said he had convinced U.S. President Donald Trump to keep troops in Syria, as he defended joint air strikes he said were legitimate and allowed France and allies to regain credibility.

“Ten days ago, President Trump was saying ‘the United States should withdraw from Syria’. We convinced him it was necessary to stay,” Macron said in an interview broadcast by BFM TV, RMC radio and Mediapart online news.

“We convinced him it was necessary to stay for the long term.”

“We also persuaded him that we needed to limit the strikes to chemical weapons (sites), after things got a little carried away over tweets,” he said.

3. Take out secular Assad, replace him with radical Islamists, that's our pattern in the Mid-East.

What a horrible mess we have made.
Islamists are selling blacks as slaves in open markets in Libya. Even Gaddafi was better than that. And HillHag cackles and gloats about it.
For anyone to be sold as a slave in this day and age is a horrible shame that our warmongers should be forced to answer for.
