Trump Derangement syndrome on full display…
After months and months of criticizing US involvement in ‘forever wars’, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has had a sudden change of mind, tweeting Tuesday that pulling US troops out of Syria could have ‘catastrophic consequences’.
Trump’s sudden withdrawal from northern Syria & endorsement of Turkey’s actions could have catastrophic consequences & risks laying the ground for immense violence and suffering.
We can pursue a strategy to stop our endless wars without endangering the lives of innocent people. https://t.co/N2YWjEGveX

Of course, her only reason for adopting this position now is that she will oppose literally anything President Trump does.
Last year AOC ran for Congress on a promise of working to remove troops from Syria and elsewhere:
“Alexandria believes that we must end the “forever war” by bringing our troops home, and ending the air strikes that perpetuate the cycle of terrorism throughout the world,” her 2018 campaign website noted.
She has repeatedly criticized ‘endless war’:
Previous gens have used millennials like a credit card: leaving nonstop war, an eroding planet, and education profiteering to fix ourselves.
Now it’s on us. The same officials who got us into this mess aren’t going to get us out.
It’s time to elect a new generation to office. https://t.co/jFthsbFdix
