Why is Trump Allowing Our Allies to Be Slaughtered?
Yeah? When did you become such a traitor?
Were you ever in the military? You don't leave your buddies in the field to die! You don't betray your most staunch ally so that their enemy can kill them!
Besides, who started these endless Middle East wars in the first place? Who opened the gates of hell?
But in a hot war, regardless of the politics back home, you don't leave a buddy to die, you don't stab a friend in the back, and you certainly don't abandon a strategic position without consulting everyone involved, especially your own military intelligence, for godsakes!
But this is Trump, who doesn't understand any of that.
A real U.S. Commander in Chief would never make such an impulsive strategic blunder or engage in such horrendous treachery, just to appease an angry autocrat (albeit ally) after being browbeaten on a phone call.
And you still defend this weak-minded fool, who wet his pants when the big bad tyrant showed the whiny little boy how to wield actual power?
Am a big fan from rural NYS just south of Montreal.
When discussing the Kurds, why don't you devote some time to explaing the geography of that part of the world being configured by a British 25 yr old civil servant who knew or cared nothing about how this tribal place was run during the Ottoman times? There was no understanding of culture, history, psychology, colonialism, etc. which has causedthe world trouble ever since. TE Lawrence was thought to have bee suicidal after this military betrayal of his deal with the Arabs who helped the west win the war. Another Betrayal!!!
