The reported departure of National Security Adviser and soon to be retired three star general H.R. McMaster from the Trump White House may be a positive sign. However, cabinet members and neocon advisers like UN Ambassador Nikki Haley who have egged on this President against his better instincts and campaign promises to get further bogged down in illegally occupying Syria, using defeated Daesh remnants as a pretext to keep thousands of troops in the country while admitting that Iran is the real target of this occupation, remain in place. The danger of a false flag, further aggression carried out by Israel or Washington's NATO ally Turkey, or even inadvertent clashes between American and Russian forces quickly escalating remains intolerable. The long suffering Syrian people, as well as citizens of all countries interested in global peace and stability, deserve better.
