Just out of one war zone and into another shit-hole that has absolutely NOTHING to do with our 'National Security'.
World View: Trump Announces that U.S. Troops Deploy Near D.R. Congo Counting the votes in DR Congo, Africa's second largest country, has been a mamoth task
AFP, 6 Jan 2019 8:16
President Trump announced that U.S. troops will be sent to Gabon, in anticipation of “violent” demonstrations in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) if and when the results of the December 30 presidential election are announced.
The announcement came in a Friday evening letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:
You tell me what our direct 'National Security' concerns are in any of the countries on the following map, keeping in mind that this map is a few years old and we most likely have many more troops there than the 6,000 they are admitting.
Trump said a week ago that we are out of Syria. Now, not so much...
Bolton: US Will Stay in Syria as Long as It Takes He says there's no longer a fixed timetable

(Newser) – The timeline for the withdrawal of American troops from Syria has gone from 30 days to four months and now to no fixed date, according to John Bolton.

In Syria, U.S. armed forces have been fighting the Islamic State or ISIS, a terrorist group that once controlled significant territory and resources, but the administration insists that ISIS has been defeated. As such, Trump is moving to withdraw all U.S. forces from Syria.
In Afghanistan, U.S. troops have been at war there for nearly 18 years, since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, making it the longest war in U.S. history. While Paul was nonspecific on the details of the timeline and scope of withdrawal from Afghanistan, the senator from Kentucky said that President Trump did make clear to senators and national security officials on Wednesday he intends to end the war there too. Paul said:
