Britain copycatting US on Syria pullout

James Jatras, a former US Senate foreign policy analyst, said the UK is totally dependent on the US when it comes to the military strategy. “It (UK) really is totally dependent on the United States with any kind of substantial military operation and it looks like where we are leading they are not going to stick around,” said Jatras. 'Just a shadow' of an imperial superpower The expert said Britain has become "just a shadow" of what it was in the old times as an imperial military superpower, saying the decision to pull out British fighter jets from Syria, where they have been contributing to an "illegal" military operation against terrorism, is directly inspired by Washington’s imminent move to withdraw troops from the Arab country. “It’s not a surprise at all that the British would start withdrawing some of their air assets from operations over Syria with the impending American withdrawal from Syria,” said Jatras. On the controversies that have been raised over Trump’s planned pullout from Syria, Jatras said the US president would finally implement his policy in the Arab country regardless of the criticism that has been going around. “While a lot of members of Trump’s team have been pushing back and trying to derail his order to withdraw our troops from Syria... I think he realizes that his presidency and his credibility are really on the line here,” said the analyst.
