On January 6, President Donald Trump announced that US troops would begin withdrawing from Syria in the coming months, but the announcement raised concern that Washington's allies might be in danger following Turkish statements about a planned military operation east of the Euphrates River.
But Eric Brown, the founder of Blackwater Security Services, praised the US president's decision in an interview with Fox Business. "Washington has no long-term strategic commitment to stay in Syria and must end its operations there, Describing the war as "an endless war."
Eric Prince suggested the possibility of replacing military service providers for US troops withdrawn from Syria. Prince, a former executive director of the company, said our contractors could protect US allies and face Iranian influence after the United States left the country.
During his interview, Prince said the United States does not have a long-term strategic commitment to stay in Syria. But I also think that giving up our allies is not a good idea.
He referred to US allies, referring to Syria's "democratic" forces. Prince said the use of contractors could allow Trump to live up to his electoral promises to end "eternal wars" while leaving behind some protection.
Blackwater was founded in 1997 and received millions of dollars from the US government for its services on land in Iraq and Afghanistan, The Independent newspaper reported.
Under these contracts, support was provided to US forces and escort services to officials and enterprises. But the company received a bad reputation for an incident in 2007 when four of the company's guards killed 14 civilians in Baghdad's Nisour Square.
In 2014, three men were convicted of manslaughter using firearms, while the fourth was convicted of premeditated murder. This issue has led to the issue of the use of US private contractors in Iraq for an intense scrutiny.
The New York Times reported that there were links between Prince and the Trump administration, with the man investing $ 250,000 in the president's campaign.
The newspaper added that a White House official suggested in the summer of 2017 the replacement of US military in Afghanistan elements of the company "Academic" (a new designation for "Blackwater"), but Trump and his military advisers did not agree to this plan.
Prince donated $ 250,000 to President Trump's presidential campaign a year earlier. His plan included a force of 6,000 contractors, consisting of former special forces of Europe and America, and training of Afghan forces, to cost the task of about 5 billion dollars a year, according to the Independent.
The plan is said to have been accepted by Trump, who has grown increasingly frustrated by the increasing costs of the 17-year conflict.Keywords: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
