What the GIs left behind: US military camp in Syria was abandoned so swiftly they left behind a mess of alcohol-free beer, DVDs and even satellite equipment
2019-10-23
[MAIL] This video shows the inside of an American military camp in Syria which was hastily abandoned by U.S. troops after Donald Trump ordered them out.

Russian journalist Oleg Blokhin filmed at the base near Manbij in northern Syria where bottles of alcohol-free beer were still sitting on tables, a wide-screen TV was perched inside a tent and a laundry room was lying empty.

The camp was equipped with armchairs, fridges and satellite dishes, as well as books and a collection of DVDs and video games, all of which were left behind.

American forces cleared out hurriedly as Turkey began its military onslaught within days of Trump's announcement earlier this month, and Russian and Syrian forces have already entered the area.

#10  Herb might have a point. The late fees on the DVDs alone will be astronomical.

#7  Damn, how much did all that cost to get out there? Hideously expensive. About time we stopped wasting our money on this nonsense.

#1  Well, the DVDs probably had eeeevil Hollyweird moovies with lots of uncovered meat. The sat gear is probably basically junk without the key cards. The NA beer has to be confusing as hell for a muzzie.
