    American borders are not worth defending. But Kurds are.

    DOTR I agree with your premise, but the Kurds haven't had a border in quite some time...

    Between 25 and 35 million Kurds inhabit a mountainous region straddling the borders of Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Iran and Armenia. They make up the fourth-largest ethnic group in the Middle East, but they have never obtained a permanent nation state.

    the fact is liberals want blood. And they won’t stop until they get a war or we stop them here. A non-nation state people with Marxist leanings .... just their kind of New Order people.

    But Turkey has already agreed to hold peace talks with the Kurds...

    Do you need a ride to the ER to treat the whiplash you got from that flip (and your TDS)???

    I am more than a bit surprised with this sudden explosion of Kurdophiles from people who a week ago thought they were cottage cheese.

    I'm as conservative as they get, but this is a dishonest mischaracterization of the argument.

    No one is for sending people's children to fight for the Kurds. The argument is the US betraying an ally because this Administration doesn't want to put in the work to a withdraw the right way.

    Yes, Turkey is already having peace talks AFTER they've grabbed territory, after they've caused the release of 1000 IS terrorists, and after they've killed hundreds of Kurdish civilians.

    Again, closing the barn door after the horses have gotten out.

    Kinda depends on what we are defending our borders against. There's a difference between refugees and armies with tanks and artillery and air power, in case you haven't noticed. Hell, even Turkey took in refugees escaping wars and murdering marauders.
