    Who needs the Kurds? All they did was defeat ISIS for us.

    Erdogan only had to flatter him by saying he had “great and unmatched wisdom,” all it took… just like at every cabinet meeting

    He’s only concerned about his twin tower hotel in Istanbul. Erdogan probably told him he’d knock it down if he didn’t get out of the way.

    YOUR GUY, Lisa! But, what’s a few hundred or a few thousand more deaths?

    I mean, they’re only Kurds, right?

    America First! The hell with everyone else.

    Today it’s the Kurds, who will be next among America’s allies? If you don’t support your friends don’t expect them to come to your aid. You’ve dragged too many into needless wars that you’ve started and then run away from.

    The umbrella should read TRUMP. He only represents himself.

    So are you guys on board now? Finally figured out that he’s a dangerous simpleton who’s been played by Russia and Turkey in exchange for shiny things?

    Interesting interview on this topic with Brett McGurk this on NPR’s Morning Edition today. Is MS Benson’s stalwart wall of blind fealty to OL’ Punkinhead developing a few cracks of enlightenment, finally?

    What’s the matter Lisa? You wanted this, didn’t you? This is your guy, isn’t he? Have you finally learned the old lesson that when you lie down with dogs you’re liable to wake up with fleas?

    The new Trump Tower in Istanbul opened the other day, Ivanka thanked the President of Turkey for showing up, then Trump abandoned the Kurds.

    Just Hours After Trump Bends to Erdoğan, Reports Indicate Turkey’s Bombing of Kurdish Forces Has Begun

    “The Turkish threats mean that the situation in this region will return to point zero,” warned the SDF on Monday. “There will be chaos once again.”

    Lisa, have you read his tweets on the matter? Tell me truly, would you allow a ten year old to talk like that?

    That’s just – incredible. And not in a good way.

    Washington is soooooo perverse on this whole thing:“On Monday, perhaps not coincidentally, Haley tweeted this: “We must always have the backs of our allies if we expect them to have our back. The Kurds were instrumental in our successful fight against ISIS in Syria. Leaving them to die is a big mistake. #TurkeyIsNotOurFriend.”

    Turkey is not our friend? That’s a surprise to those of us who’ve been paying attention because it was barely a year ago that official Washington — I mean, everybody — was outraged. They were savaging the president for the crime of undermining NATO.

    The Atlantic, in one example, ran this headline: “Trump’s Biggest Gift to Putin is Questioning NATO.” Just questioning NATO was totally forbidden. It was a sin. And people like Nikki Haley strongly agreed with that.

    But here’s the weird thing: The Kurds aren’t part of NATO because there is no Kurdistan. Turkey is part of NATO. They’re one of our fabled NATO allies. That means we’re bound by treaty to defend the Turks if they are attacked."

    What’s the budget for the U.S. military presence in Syria? Trump figures that if he can bring all those troops home, he can use any money left over to erect a few more miles of the “Wall”. Now do you understand?

    Another sad incident in the Swamp Creature’s chapter of American HIstory. When the US stands on the field of battle in need of allies, should we be surprised to find ourselves standing alone?

    So trumpty dumpty’s taken another step towards enhancing his posture as a dick-tator by throwing our America allies under the bus for a fellow dick-tator!

    Once again Trump places his own interests ahead of those of this country, and craps on our allies in order to kowtow to a strongman. Who can say what harm this will do to America’s interests down the line?


    But, hey- “best President ever”, right, Ms. Benson?
