It's not an accusation. Its a reality. tRUmp has surrendered several US military bases to Putin. Wake up.

No what you are doing is proving how intellectually lazy and dishonest you are. But I wouldn't expect anything more from a member of the tRUmp cult.

I'm sorry when did Syria give the U.S. permission to build an airbase in their country?
the answer is never.
Did Assad ever invite U.S. troops or planes into his country?
NO.
Did congress ever approve of U.S. troops going into Syria?
NO.

So why are "peace loving" "constitutional crime alert" democrats upset about !Russians! who were invited by Syria "taking over" a FOREIGN airbase, in a country we never should have been in the 1st place?!!?!
What happen to the antiwar left here?

---BTW was it illegally built by the U.S. on foreign soil or did we just take over an existing Syrian Airbase?---

I notice you failed to address my assumption that the bases in question were nothing but flat spots in the dessert on which the US Armed forces erected tents and marked out some sand as a landing strip. I seriously doubt the US built anything on consequence in Syria.

And as Mr. Wonder correctly points out, if the US did build bases there, they were not built with the approval of the Syrian Government. Therefore, we were trespassing.

Russia and Syria's problem.
It was ill-conceived (and likely illegal) for b.o. to move our troops there (without congressional approval) in the first place.
Funny how liberals are all about "bringing the troops home" until Trump actually does it.

I need a source for those troops that tRUmp brought home. (because that's a lie.)

well to be fair Saddam Hussein didn't invite us in either
don't take Russia's side over our allies and other fledgling democracies
it's very close to treason.
