  1. What we're doing to the Kurds we pretty much did to our own troops after Vietnam too. So it seems like a pretty standard mode of operation now.

    Or he did it because everyone is talking about how many Kurds will be killed instead of a phone call to Ukraine.

  3. Surprise, surprise, Turkey is launching an attack. We'll end up with 50K troops over there to "save the day". Hearts and minds to be won, schools and indoor plumbing for all. Shit never changes.

    All he needed to do was leave the 50 troops there. Prisoners will go free, many of those who helped us will die. Absolute disgrace.

    ‘Humanitarian catastrophe’: Civilians flee as Turkey launches Trump-sanctioned military assault on Kurds in Syria
    October 9, 2019

    Rights groups and anti-war activists warned of a looming “humanitarian catastrophe” Wednesday as Turkish forces invaded northeastern Syria and launched airstrikes against Kurdish targets, forcing civilians to flee in panic.

    The attack comes days after U.S. President Donald Trump gave his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdoğan a green light to begin the operation by announcing the abrupt withdrawal of American forces from northeastern Syria.

    The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) warned in a statement Wednesday that Turkey’s assault “will spill the blood of thousands of innocent civilians because our border areas are overcrowded.”

    On Twitter, SDF spokesman Mustafa Bali accused Turkey of deliberately targeting “civilian areas.”

    Fighters with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG), which leads the SDF, told CNN that hundreds of civilians scrambled to escape northeastern Syria as Turkey began bombarding the area:

    He can't win with you guys anyway. He goes into Syria, you call him a warmonger and guilty of pushing a war without Congress's approval. Backs out and he's Putin's lap dog.

    You know, for years I watched people on the right attack Obama for anything regardless of what he did and agreeing with the left when they said that very same thing. Little did I know the same folks were on the other side of the aisle and willing to forget all of that and become the very thing they rallied against.

  8. He didn't attack the right or defend Obama that time.

    Trump is more concerned about protecting his ''Trump Towers'' in Turkey.

    This whole situation is fucked up with Trump and the Kurds but the speed at which he allowed Turkey to move on OUR ALLIES is insane. He left them with no time to plan an escape or defense. No time to seek other assistance. In a master of hours Turkey was on them.

    This is a damn shame.
