he's going ballistic!

"As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over the captured ISIS fighters and families. The U.S. has done far more than anyone could have ever expected, including the capture of 100% of the ISIS Caliphate. It is time now for others in the region, some of great wealth, to protect their own territory. THE USA IS GREAT!"

I think it's a great straight to the point tweet. It's time to get the hell out of there.

So in other words all these news stories about Turkey invading and crushing the Kurds is just...Fake News.

*If* Turkey is dumb enough to do something like that, it will give us a reason to boot them out of NATO, which is something that needs to be done. We shouldn’t be obligated to go to war for those Muslims

This is a WIN-WIN situation for us.

Thank God we have such an awesome President.

Are you sure that it was him and not you that erupted?

He is correct again.

On Friday the dems were bitching about Trump spending money we don’t have on endless wars. Today they’re bitching because he’s pulling out of one.

Life as a democrat is like musical chairs. You’ve got to be ready to change direction at any moment.

This is a big reason we support Trump. Blunt honesty and protector of our USA.

The Kurds have been our allies since before the Persian Gulf war. We owe them our continued support.

The Turks have been using NATO to defend them against a possible Russian attack. Russia & Turkey (Ottomon Empire) have had numerous wars before - they NEED NATO.

Turkey asked for permission and Trump told them: No; we will destroy your economy and if youre fucking dumb enough to try it; remember, we still control the air space, stop believing the shit they print in the WaPost.

No.
In the phone call from 15th December 2018 between Trump and Erdogan there was a deal to establish a 20 mile deep security zone on Syrian-Turkish border, cease support for YPG/PKK/SDF and US troops leaving the area. Since then the US establishment has pushed back against Trump, Mattis resigned, McGurk fired, no troops leaving the area, continued weapons shipments to the area. No progress on the security zone on the Syrian Turkish border.
10 months passed with stalling and Turkey said "we'll go in without USA coordination".
Now there was a phone call between Trump and Erdogan again and Trump renewed his commitment to the deal and ordered US troops out of the area.

After this latest call the US establishment is again pushing against Trump with the likes of Graham, Clinto (they all went against it on Twitter).
Trump's comments on Turkish economy is no threat, it is directed at US inner establishment to portray him as the strongman.
There's adeal in place between Trump and Erdogan, and Turkish Army will move into North-East Syria with or without US coordination.

To the issue of "we are controlling the airspace":
Yes, out of Incirlik with Turkey's permission.
Just theoretical: You are going to establish a no-fly zone in Syria against Turkey out of Turkish territory on the internet ?

Imagine if Obama had said, "Grab them by the pussy" or "I am a stable genius" or "No aid for you until you investigate my top political threat to my re-election" or "I, in my great and unmatched wisdom" or had used an illegal campaign contribution to pay off a porn star.

Yeah.

Sean Hannity's head would have exploded. And all of the pseudocons would be dead from strokes.
