    Henry Kissinger also betrayed the Kurd using far more graphic language.

    "'Our movement and people are being destroyed in an unbelievable way, with silence from everyone. We feel, your Excellency, that the United States has a moral and political responsibility towards our people, who have committed themselves to your country’s policy.' Kurdish leader Mustafa Barzani’s message to Kissinger, 1975.

    "'Promise them anything, give them what they get, and f… them if they can’t take a joke.' Kissinger to a staff member regarding the Kurds, 1975."

    I have no love for China or wars of aggression, and I'm unaware of any progressive who feels otherwise; could you name one who supports authoritarian capitalism and eternal war?

    And send the bill to Henry Kissinger.
    [​IMG]
    "Dr. Kissinger created a terror period (1975-2003) that was the darkest, bloodiest, the most painful period in the history of Kurdistan’s struggle for obtaining basic human rights and freedom.

    "In cooperation with Iran and Israel, his plan for the Kurds, according to Lando (2010). 'was a ruthless, deceitful process, which resulted in hundreds of thousands of Kurds being slaughtered and displaced over the years.'"

    So are you calling for Turkey to be disowned by NATO, arming the Kurds, and even help them gain independence from Turkey, Syria, and Iraq?

    And Iran, at least that was one of the "mission accomplished" talking points of 15 years ago.

    If Turkey is violating NATO protocols, they should be held accountable; although, after decades of human rights violations against the Kurds, that isn't likely to happen.

    In other words you are full of shit and are willing to let Turkey get away with whatever they want, so long as you get to blame President Trump.

    Who would you blame for Turkey's invasion of Syria?
