Trump abandoning Kurds move to end involvement in wars?
#13
I can’t blame Trump here-you can’t say you oppose nation building and massive US military interventions and then turn around and go to war w/ Turkey over something that has zero tangible US interest. Does it suck to be a Kurd-absolutely-but’s that what you get when your populace is spread out over Turkey, Syria, Iran, and Iraq.

I would like to hear an alternative.

Keep doing the same things?

Turn one of Ankara, Riyadh, Tehran, or Baghdad into a glass parking lot and say “Who’s next if you people don’t calm down? We can do this from North Dakota and only the Chinese care about your oil.” Better yet, tell them that Medina is on target and you will give warning a week in advance to allow them to evacuate the cities population. If they still don’t calm down-permanently-tell them Mecca is next, with warning for civilians.

Our nation's taxpayers foot the bill for protection of nations around the world.  Can we as taxpayers justify that revenue collection to security for us here at home?   That is the question and I really don't know the answer.

ISIS will replace white extremists as the most dangerous threat.
Drive like hell!!  You'll get there!

It wasn't my quote.   It was from Ben Shapiro.

Trump did promise to “Ruin the Turkish economy” or words to that exact same effect if Erdogan messed with the Kurds upon invasion. He’s not as naive to this particular situation as many think, I suspect.

Of course we shouldn't be invading Syria. We should have supported the rebels and helped them to bring down one of the world's most brutal dictators, which we could have done without a single soldier entering the country--okay so maybe some special forces, trainers, etc. Instead, we've given carte blanche to the worst people there and for no benefit to our nation.

Maybe Trump should draw some of those lines in the sand like Obama did.
Jimmy liked it when obama drew his big red line.

James is being critical of Obama here, obviously......he just doesn’t name him by name..
