Even before American troops have pulled out of Syria or Afghanistan, politicians and pundits are judging President Trump’s Middle East pullout decision. Trump announced on December 19, 2018 that he planned to pull U.S. troops out of Syria and reduce the number of troops in Afghanistan. There are myriad possible knock-on effects of this decision for this volatile region and for the homeland.

In this podcast, members of the Clarion team discuss Trump’s Middle East pullout. They discuss the latest news but put it into focus as Saudis and Iranians continue to battle, Israelis fear a new Iranian proxy on their border and Turkish tanks are at the ready to attack Kurdish targets.
