    "A contingent of U.S. Special Forces was caught up in Turkish shelling against U.S.-backed Kurdish positions in northern Syria, days after President Donald Trump told his Turkish counterpart he would withdraw U.S. troops from certain positions in the area.

    "A senior Pentagon official said shelling by the Turkish forces was so heavy that the U.S. personnel considered firing back in self-defense."

    Exclusive: Turkey attacks US special forces in Syria, apparently by mistake

    Is it possible Trump did not realize he was giving Erdogan a green light to invade northern Syria?

    Is it (more) likely some of Turkey's Arab militia fighters believe they have a score to settle with the US?

    What happens if a US soldier dies from a NATO ally's American-made weapons?

    As I have been saying for years, time to boot Turkey out of NATO.

    Drop a few MOABs on their Muslim asses as well.

    Opinion | Take It From A Civil Liberties Professor - Trump And Hitler Have A Lot In Common

    "'One of the most striking Nazi views was that Jim Crow was a suitable racist program in the United States because American blacks were already oppressed and poor,' he says. 'But then in Germany, by contrast, where the Jews (as the Nazis imagined it) were rich and powerful, it was necessary to take more severe measures.'"

    If we cared about the Kurds, we wouldn't have been allies with Saddam Hussein in the 80's .

    You love China and you love war. And you cut military budgets to the point the soldier's life is in danger when TRAINING! And you spout the Viet Nam thing that was a bad time for many people. Including Prog politicians. You war lovers. We always knew Progs are war mongers. But the neo con branch of the swamp had control of that agenda.
