Ok, as a veteran, this cowardice by trump makes me sick to my stomach. He thinks we defeated isis lol... First, they still active, not defeated, but
depleted.. second, the only reason they were mostly destroyed was our allies the kurds... they died in the thousands fighting isis for us.. isis
destroyed because the kurds not only fought those battles but protected and hid our forward air controllers and observers that called in air strikes
we were fighting an enemy that were using our own equipment that the iraqis left as they ran away...
For veterans and military this was a betrayal on a scale we will never recover from... no one will ever support us again... we depend on people like
the kurds and to leave them to die is well, just cowardly, which is what trump is, a coward.
Lastly, the words used describing the so called cease fire were directly out of erdogon mouth... they labeled all kurds as ypg, or terrorist... the
kurds who fought and died for us were not ypg... in essence erdogon was giving validation to his invasion of 2 countries and killing our allies and
taking their land... you see, he is not our ally, has not been for a very long time.. he has aligned with russia and actually been actively helping
iran subvert sanctions. When we asked him to help fight isis before he declined.... but after the pkk and others tried the coup he vowed to
ethnically cleanse the whole area of kurds...
in truth, actual ypg is an offshoot of the pkk and fighters in n syria labeled ypg by turkey long ago.. when in truth, those fighters are kurds,
assyrian, arab and others. It is all BS to validate turkey attempt to ethnic cleanse turkish border and area of kurds...
this veteran says trump is a coward... we don't leave allies behind to die, especially one's who fought and died for us by the thousands... fact is we
would not even give them heavy weapons lol... what they had they captured, joke, but they still fought for us...
Hey Trump, if you want to bring some troops home and save some money, uh, how bout the thousands in germany who have been there since after ww2 at a
yearly cost of billions to us... and leaving troops in the most actual strategic area in the world, the middle east lol... not only is it where two
thirds the world oil comes from and is therefore very strategic it is also the area most effecting our closest and most dear ally, Israel... you don't
think they are, well you know nothing about this country and our history... all our early presidents and founders got on their knee's and prayed to
the Lord Jesus Christ, hmmm did not know that lol... today, many do not want us to support Israel, but this is something that will never change....
like mattis said, trump is a coward..
