    President Trump has played this out perfectly. By isolating Turkish President Recep Erdogan, and effectively leaving him naked to an alliance of his enemies, Erdogan is now urgently asking for the U.S. to mediate peace negotiations with Kurdish forces.

    This request happens immediately after President Trump signed an executive order [See Here] triggering the sanction authority of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Erdogan called the White House requesting an urgent phone call with President Trump.

    After President Trump talked to Kurdish General Mazloum Kobani Abdi, the commander of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, President Trump then discussed the options available to President Erdogan. As a result of that conversation, Erdogan requested the U.S. mediate negotiations. Vice-President Mike Pence announces he will be traveling to the region with National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien to lead that effort. WATCH:

    SSSHHH. Don’t tell the NeoCons, the demonRATS the Never Trumper’s and, not a few Trump supporter hand-wringers about this.

    It’ll burst the false narrative bubble that the president doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing and is simply acting in knee jerk fashion to keep a campaign promise. Neglecting to note of course that if that was all it was he could have done this 2.5 years ago.

    “But, but, but, 50 of our nukes are being held hostage!”

    The left are incapable of giving the President credit for getting us out of this mess and exposing Turkey for the Islamic thugs they are.

    You know that Kurds and Syrians are Muslim too?
    Since you watch only foxnews, I'll tell you what side the US gain from all of this.
    1.the US lost more allies.
    2. The IS can't be trusted.
    3. US influence in the region is shrinking faster than trump's underwear.

    You gonna tell me fuck the world...fair, don't cry when the US companies can't get a fair share of markets in the countries that will lean towards China.

    If the Democrats are worried that the Turks are holding 50 of our nukes hostage, maybe we can just offer to give those nukes to the Turks...

    We can deliver them via airmail, from 50,000 feet, as we leave that country!!!

    Assad doesn't want the Turks in his country.

    RUSSIA! certainly wants the Turks to stay in their box and ISIS destroyed.

    Let them handle it

    Erdogan is stupid. After snuggling up to Russia and buying air defense systems from them he's now going to have to fight the Russian backed Syrian military. At the same time we're going to crush his economy.

    That idiot doesn't have one friend now. It's one thing to be at odds with Russia or America, it's another to be fighting both at the same time.

    I can't find this anywhere else. Is OP somehow referring to Pence being dispatched to seek negotiations? It wasn't Turkey that requested that.
