I have no problem with this the Kurds are tough enough to handle anyone in that region as long as the playing field is level.



Russians and Assad to their south and Turkish Invasion from the north and the country that promised to stand by them is pulling out.

'Stab in the back': Kurdish forces decry US pullout from Syria

US to let Turkish forces move into Syria, dumping Kurdish allies
White House reveals policy shift following conversation between Trump and Erdoğan

A gift to Putin and Assad.
A gift to Turkey.
A betrayal of the Kurds, the men who took Raqqa on our behalf.

There is always a price for this kind of betrayal. Trump will likely be gone by the time the USA has to pay for his moral bankruptcy.

It shames me to say but not the first time we stabbed them in the back, Bush senior was the first one I was aware of to do so and every admin since has hung them out to dry.
ETA: also if you are only outraged now, you have either been under a rock, asleep or might be partisan in your views.

Oh sorry, I didn’t realize you confuse your propaganda as sarcasm. Carry on trolling the boards.

When did Democrats become the warmongering party?

I am totally anti-war anti-world police for America. The United States has been used by the Deep State to benefit the NWO for far too long. I guess it makes sense that since Dims now hate America they are upset we are abandoning their Globalist masters.

The interesting part of this is we see how many RINO Globalists are exposing themselves as well. We can clearly see the anti-Americans in our Government now.

I am just thrilled we have a POTUS that stands for peace.

I remember when Bush Senior used and abandoned the Kurds in Northern Iraq.

It was no where on this scale and I am not sure if you are saying that makes this alright?

As recently as 3 days ago The US Secretary of Defense and the Turkish Defense Minister had agreed on a pathway to peace, safe-zones and all.

The bombing and bloodshed for Kurds starts now.

You might confuse strength in negotiating for "warmongering"?
Turkey could do nothing while we were there.

And endorsing and facilitating the slaughter of our allies who took Raqqa from ISIS for us as peace?

Looks like another "cut and run."

Abandon allies. Smart move. Who will stand up with the US in the future when we need them?

Looks like no one will as long as Trump is in office.


We support the Kurds, and our interests aligned perfectly when it came to ISIS. The Kurds want statehood however, and to achieve that would mean the US has to go against a NATO ally in Turkey.

What would you do, I dare ask.

Holy crap Trump has lost his marbles.



“If Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey,”


I do have to give him credit for Uniting Congress in these partisan times.

Three days ago the US Secretary of Defense announced an agreement with the Minister of Defense of Turkey for safe zones along the Turkey Border between the Kurds and a path to a negotiated a peace.

Turmp...all by himself...after a call from Erdogan..in his "Great and Unmatched Wisdom"...said eff-it, we will get out of your way and you can bomb the hell out them.

Source on Trump saying that? Or is that just hyperbole.

Erdogan will not suffer terrorists (Turkey designated the PKK a terrorist org forty years ago) along his border. Anything Erdogan says should be taken with a large pinch of salt. Meanwhile, we're arming the Kurds, which is the best we can do without stepping into the middle of an international incident with a NATO ally. So why be there?

Lets just say if people did as much digging on Trump as they did the opposition party they'd of been a dozen threads a day created on it.


There basically is. Sooooo…...now what? Another political investigation? The amount of work you guys are putting in lately does not seem to be getting you anywhere.

Neither of those are Syria, however.
