Yes indeed. Not really much of anything given that the US actually has only 2000 'trainers' in Syria to pull out.

The real question that screams out to me is why the USA is so gawd-awful bad at training these third world armies. Vietnam, Lebanon, Afghanistan, Iraq & Syria all featured a massive and continuous attempt by US military to train local troops over a period of years and all ended in absolute and unmitigated failure.
