It seems that it was bad. The Democrats are saying it's because Donald Trump did something. Because nothing bad has ever happened in the Middle East before.
What's interesting is that nobody is talking about the US history in the Middle East. George Bush got us into a war in Iraq, and then kept us there throughout his entire administration. The Democrats thought this was self-evidently bad. Then Obama did one better and got two wars in the Middle East (Libya and Iraq) which have been going on ever since.
But the Democrats are saying that it is self-evidently bad that Trump is pulling our soldiers out of what seems to be never ending wars. Man, I'm so old that I remember when they thought wars with no objective or end were bad.
