Eh that's what I get for relying on a liberal social media post. And subconsciously I couldn't believe someone not currently unemployed could be that wrong twice.

Seems like it's mostly war-hawk Republicans pissed off about the pullout.

Sounds like it but he does raise a couple of good points. I’m not sure it will be as doom and gloom as he predicts though

Started out good but then just fell into name calling and strong bias.  I agree that the troops should come back but I don't blame Mattis.  To move troops in any way without even consulting your top military advisor says you don't trust said advisor.

also, there are solid arguments against leaving that he didn't even mention.

I believe Salon is the left's version Breitbart. Hard to expect non bias

Border wall money. 

But seriously, I think to the person everyone was stunned Obama went boots on the ground in Syria and now 5 years later the pullout is complicated by promises made to the Kurds that Turkey would stay out of their territory. 

The Kurds are getting screwed, that's not historically unusual but it now sends the message that from administration to administration the deals brokered can be broken. Bad optics but I'm not going to say I want troops to stay.
