"Knocked them Silly?"

US President demonstrates
how much he understands

about the situation in MENA
I'll just leave this here ( Orhan Coskun, Lesley Wroughton, 'Syrian surprise: How Trump's phone call changed the war' Reuters ):
On a visit to a U.S. air base in Iraq this week, Trump said that military commanders had repeatedly requested extensions for the 2,000 U.S. troops in Syria - requests that he finally turned down because he said Islamic State was largely beaten. “We’ve knocked them silly. I will tell you I’ve had some very good talks with President Erdogan who wants to knock them out also, and he’ll do it,” he told American troops.
We'll come back to it, I'm sure. Mr Trump's childlike lack of grasp of the realities here too is worrying.
