    Well, not your cause. Your cause is to be left along in whatever inbred Klan backwater they made the mistake of connecting to the internet.

    Well, in Vietnam, no one was really that keen on fighting for the government we were trying to prop up.

    Syria, yes, the Kurds are willing to fight against ISIS (remember them?) to secure their own homeland. They are currently holding 12,000 ISIS fighters that we don't have to fight now.

    I understand the point just fine.

    We are not going to pull out of the Middle East. We have too much of a vested interest there.

    What we are doing is telling the next bunch that might want to side with us, "Hey, you can side with us, but we'll turn on you on a moment's notice for no good reason."

    the problem is you people don't know any history/military history
    ...we gain nothing by staying there.....the Kurds are fine
    not much will change by us being there or not

    Turkey is not going to take over or smash anything
    learn some history
    ----it's like Beirut/etc --we were accomplishing NOTHING
    ..also like using force in Somalia-accomplished nothing politically/etc
    ..also Vietnam
    etc

    Yeah, clearly I don't know anything about the military or history. Except I was in the Army for 11 years and I have a degree in History from UIC.

    Ergodan - an Islamist who has steered Turkey away from it's secularist grounding - would not be invading Kurdish Syria if we told him not to.
