Okay, here's two others: Rand Paul and also the Cato Institute.

So, it seems to me that the libertarian/isolationist ideologues support the
troop withdrawal. They are a tiny wing of the strategists for the US
capitalist class. I don't think they represent any particular sector. They
don't represent finance capital nor do they represent the oil sector
(although that's the Koch background, of course). For a better view of the
oil sector, look at the position of Rex Tillerson when he was Secretary of
State. He most definitely supported keeping the troops there.

This relates to the second question I posed: Can anybody show how this
troop withdrawal is in the strategic interests of US capitalism? The winner
in this is Russian imperialism. So, unless you want to argue that the
interests of these two imperialist powers are strategically aligned, US
imperialism has lost here on a large scale.

On a related note, I'm wondering if it would be correct to say that some US
capitalists and their strategists favor a realignment with Putin more for
ideological reasons than anything else. Putin, after all, is the hub of the
wheel whose spokes are almost all the chauvinist, racist and even fascist
forces in Western Europe and the United States.
