The PKK is a terrorist organization that has killed over 40K people. They are not a "consistent ally". They are a group Obama sold out to as a matter of necessity when the clusterfuck he created in Syria was completely out of control. The Kenyan became an ally with the terrorist group to use them to hunt down and kill another terrorist group--ISIS--because Obama could not effectively manage his way out of a wet paper bag, let alone Russian forces. Turkey is our ally and a member of NATO. We cannot side with the PKK in their desire to attack Turkey nor can we stand in Turkey's way in their desire to go after the bastards who have been killing their citizens, trying to seize part of their country, and who want to create their version of an ISIS homeland in Northern Syria and Southern Turkey.

Anybody who thinks that our troops should be caught in the middle of a no-win situation, is so full of Trump butt hurt and so ignorant of the situation that they should just turn in their citizenship at the American embassy in whatever shithole country will have them.
Wow, you guys are going hysterical.

One could make an argument that we shouldn't support the Kurds, but that decision was made 15 years ago when Dubya Bush invaded Iraq and the Kurds were the only ones who went along with the whole deal.

The thing is, even folks in the military are horrified by Trump's selling out our interests to Turkey and Iran in Syria.

Trump the draft Dodger has no respect for the lives lost and the act of a consistent ally.
Thousands of Kurds lost their lives while fighting by US forces in the fight against ISIS.. And this how Trump rewards them.
Trump the draft dodger has the blood of the Kurds on his hands.
Trump: ‘I will totally destroy the economy’
Are you suggesting that the Kurds would not have been in conflict with ISIS, absent US support?

Possibly not. The Kurds only have one real interest, self-rule in the Kurdish areas of Iraq, Turkey and Syria. ISIS is just the Arabs fighting among themselves... the Kurds didn't need to get involved, but they proved to be the most effective fighters in defeating them.

And now Trump has stabbed them in the back.

Good luck getting the next group to do our heavy lifting.

are we supposed to stay there forever? as people wanted us to in Vietnam?
Were still in Germany 75 years after WWII.

We are still in Japan.

We are still in Korea.
The governments of Korea, Japan, and Germany both condone our presence, and benefit financially, and militarily from it. Syria..? Not so much. Gargantuan difference.

Another Libturd bullshit headline.

Nobody is attacking the Kurds other than the ISIS and Al Queda jihadists.
And the Kurds are more than holding their own.
The Turks have always been so fond of them

Hell
Let's see first.....why are we in Syria again ?
Oh yeah because Obama sent the CIA to try to overthrow Assad, it failed and ISIS moved in .
Why are we really in Syria?

1. The removal of Saddam Hussein left a power vacuum in Iraq and in the Middle East and the civil and tribal wars spilled over into Syria.

2. The spillage into Syria and the Arab Spring gave Obama the idea of removing a Russian and Iranian puppet from power ( Assad ) while not thinking it through who would replace Assad?

So in the end if we abandon the Kurds again and go back and say " Join us in a fight " I hope they tell us to go fuck ourselves!

Turkey is going after the southern Kurds who support communism.
They are not going after the northern Kurds who are for democracy.
There are different forms of Kurds with different views of government.
They are going after communists who are on the southern border

Who are the Kurds? A user's guide to Kurdish politics

Yes the military industrial complex would like us stuck in another never going to change hot zone. It is good for business. That does not change a single thing I posted.

Well at least the USA is consistent from the days of Obama and before in how we royally lie to and screw the Kurds. They are our new American Indians.
Seems you and other ardent supporters of Trump want to blame everything on Obama and his administration and the Clinton's.

Trumpism is remarkably mindful of 1984 and the efforts of BIG BROTHER'S Ministry of Truth.

Trump has destroyed any credibility that the US under his control can be trusted.

Approve or not, it was going to happen anyway.
You should thank Trump for getting US troops out of harms way :)

Turkey begins military offensive in Syria, Erdogan announces

Turkey begins military offensive into Syria after US pulled back troops - CNNPolitics

trump will be remembered as the spineless coward who turned his back on our allies....the Kurds....
Where in the past have you stood with regard to the US involvement in Syria specifically, and the Middle East generally?

Provide proof of your stance with past commentary you have made regarding America's involvement in each instance.

Since Crooked Hillary said yesterday that she could "beat Trump again" then maybe she should run and then be the Commander in Chief and send the troops back to Syria like you Moon Bats want.
