U.S. President Donald Trump has decided to end the CIA’s covert program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels battling the government of President Bashar Al-Assad. It is obvious that President Trump has agreed to Assad remaining in power in Syria.
This announcement comes just one week after the Trump/Putin Syrian ceasefire was implemented. The ceasefire seems to be holding. If Trump and Putin successfully bring the horrible Syrian conflict to an end, could it set the table for a bigger agreement between Israel and the Palestinians?
