    Turks already pounding the Kurds with air strikes

    Turns out we didn’t abandon them. We’re standing aside watching while they’re slaughtered.


    Smooth move trump.

        You should stop doing that.

            Actually, we (real liberals) were against it from the start!

              I'm not too worried about the Kurds, they can take care of themselves. We've never fought over seas out of charity so don't believe that our mission over there was ever about protecting Kurds. Ironic the military industrial complex playing the maudlin charity card (but think of the poor Kurds!) if it helps keep us in the war.

                So was I, so was Trump.

                Watch him tear into Jeb Bush in the GOP debate for his brother's war for AIPAC in Iraq.

                People in the audience (RINOs) gasped.

                  The Kurds were our allies and now we have left them to be slaughtered by the Turks. It stinks.

                    The alternative would be to go to war with Turkey. You really think that would happen?

                      Yep. The UN can send troops to help them if they want.

                      There are mercenaries we could pay on the sly, also.

                        Welp, there goes the last shred of credibility for the US. Not much hope of any other country wanting to negotiate with the US. We've just proved to the world that America can't be trusted.

                        That'll help.

                          If the world dislikes us for getting out of wars then I'm ok with that. They whine when we get into wars,and then they whine when we get out of wars. They don't even know what they want.

                        That’s hilarious. The Turks would last 5 minutes in a war with the US. All we had to do was stand in their way.

                          We don't have any "allies" there. We have countries that we've fucked over less than we've fucked over some others, and the Saudis who if we were not so beneficial to them economically would cut our throats.

                            We just proved that we no longer meddle in the ME, unless it's a direct threat to us..
