Local businessman Albert Abdouche got back from Syria about two weeks ago. He spent about a month there.

Just days ago, President Donald Trump announced the U.S. would begin pulling troops from the Syria-Turkey border.

Abdouche supports the move.

"We have no business to be there with our troops there and to get killed," he said.

Aziz Wheeby, President of the Syrian American Amarian Charity Society, agrees.

"I agree with Trump withdrawing troops from Syria and at least giving the Syrian government a chance to gain control over the country," Wheeby said.

However, even Republicans, including Senators Pat Toomey and Lindsay Graham, have criticized the decision. Graham went as far as to say it could restore strength to ISIS.

Retired 4-star general Joseph Leonard Votel questioned its effects too.

"Disappointment that we're letting down our partners, perhaps adding to the humanitarian disaster in this region, and that we may be ceding a hard-won strategic advantage to play a role in what is admittedly turning into a lengthy and difficult process to bring a political solution to this troubled area," Votel said.

Turkey's president has made a big decision too, launching a military offensive in northeastern Syria against the Syrian Kurdish fighters there.

"I think he has no business to be there either, Syrian government can handle this problem their selves," Abdouche said. 

"No doubt Turkey is disrespecting international laws by attacking Syria. The Kurds have to do their duty as a part of the Syrian nation, the same way the Syrian government is defending Syria," Wheeby said.

Both Abdouche and Wheeby also were of the mindset that foreign troops shouldn't be involved in Syrian issues.
