Following Trumps decision to move our troops aside to allow for Turkeys planned invasion of Syria several things have gone wrong. Hundreds of civilians have been gunned down, Turkey has attacked our troops and ISIS fighters have escaped prison.

Today it is being reported that the troops Trump ordered to relocate are being ordered to retreat. However, Turkey has effectively cut off any means of retreat available to our soldiers. In addition to the 1000 troops trapped in Syria there are also 50 tactical nukes.


The drama is nowhere near over. Out of necessity, the Kurds switched sides on Sunday, turning their backs on Washington and signing up with President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, a man the United States has called a war criminal for gassing his own people. At the Pentagon, officials struggled with the right response if Turkish forces — NATO allies — again opened fire on any of the 1,000 or so Americans now preparing to retreat from their positions inside Syria. Those troops are trapped for now, since Turkey has cut off the roads; removing them may require an airlift.

And over the weekend, State and Energy Department officials were quietly reviewing plans for evacuating roughly 50 tactical nuclear weapons that the United States had long stored, under American control, at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey, about 250 miles from the Syrian border, according to two American officials.

Those weapons, one senior official said, were now essentially Erdogan’s hostages. To fly them out of Incirlik would be to mark the de facto end of the Turkish-American alliance. To keep them there, though, is to perpetuate a nuclear vulnerability that should have been eliminated years ago.

I think it’s safe to say at this point that Trump is in over his head and incapable of playing 4D chess.

The military should have got those nukes out of there first.

Why does he just move them from Syria to Saudi Arabia?

Isn't that the plan for Iran?

Agreed, Trump didn’t give them enough time to do anything.

I understand why he had the “get it done right now, don’t give me any excuses” mentality, it that doesn’t work in international military decisions.

But Trump has claimed to be a better tactical military mind than all other US military officers. Everything is going as planned.

Laughable, while our air lift capability is not what it once was, we can still handle anything in Turkey or Syria when it comes to getting our men and materials out.

Also Turkey is well aware that touching or threatening to touch those nukes in Incirlik are not worth the trouble it would cause them.

The dictator wants to fight the Kurds not the US military.

There are no US nukes in Syria.
They are safe and sound 250 miles from Syria safe and sound.

If there was an urgent need to move those weapons, they would be moved.

Trump in over his head ?

Hillary and Barry O are the ones that supported ISIS in Syria and sent them weapons - they CAUSED the refugee crisis affecting Europe and the World

Nah he's not in over his head!
He first pulled our the troops and now he's redeploying them again. We'll, I guess he kept his promise to pull them out. He never said for how long.
