The Pentagon announced that it was withdrawing 3,500 troops from Iraq, while the Secretary of Defense announced that another 3,000 troops would be withdrawing from Afghanistan to accompany the withdrawal of US troops from the region.
However, a significant number of US troops will remain in the region, including in Iraq and Afghanistan. US military bases in these countries are also remained and key elements are present in these bases. West Asian security experts believe that the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and Iraq is due to various Trump slogans and has a propaganda aspect. In the past month, Trump has claimed that he has effectively eliminated terrorist groups by killing Daesh. Accordingly, he has to reduce its forces to show his unrealistically comprehensive slogan true. On the other hand, Trump is well aware that this reduction was in line with the 2016 slogan and is based on exit policies from the region. In that election, Trump claimed that the Democratic current is war lover, causing a staggering $ 7 trillion in costs to American taxpayers, and that there is no justification for keeping troops in West Asia! This is while the Trump administration had the largest presence in West Asia, and from this perspective, Trump needs changes in foreign policy.
On the other hand, the presence of forces in West Asia has another serious disadvantage. In the past year, Trump has claimed that security has returned to West Asia with an agreement imposed between the countries of the region and the Zionist regime, and that there is no need for foreign forces. He describes himself as an angel of salvation and peace, for whom the high statistics of manpower in West Asia have no justification.
Accordingly, he dictated the peace project of the Zionist regime on countries such as Bahrain, the UAE and Saudi Arabia on the one hand, and the irrational agreements of the Afghan government and the Taliban on the other hand. He believes his name should be listed as a pacifist, which is why the Pentagon needs to reduce its forces in support of Trump.
Of course, Trump has no choice but to leave. Although this departure is a show off, but after the martyrdom of commanders Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes and Haj Qassem Soleimani and the increase in public disgust with the presence of military forces, as well as tensions in areas such as Ain al-Assad, it seems that in the coming days he will have to leave the region. Because long presence in Iraq is not an achievement for Trump, and he, like Obama, could not achieve much in Syria and Yemen. Also, the provision of manpower costs in the COVID-19 is merely an economic pressure on taxpayers, and due to the order to eliminate heavy taxes on the upper class, tax tensions in lower classes are likely to increase. Trump knows well that the withdrawal of 3,000 troops is a show off, and he still have plans to make money from oil wells in West Asia, but keeping the US military in the region means imposing security costs on the Pentagon and could waste the lives of American citizens. In particular, the official policy of resistance axis is the expulsion of America from the whole of West Asia completly.
