    > In defending his decision to pull back U.S. troops, Trump has claimed he is fulfilling a campaign promise to halt "Endless wars.”

    > Trump maintained during a rambling press conference Wednesday that the Kurds are merely "Fighting for their land." He attempted to justify his stance based on the fact that Kurdish soldiers did not fight alongside Americans during World War II. The Kurds "Didn't help us in the Second World War, they didn't help us with Normandy as an example-they mention the names of different battles, they weren't there," Trump said.

    > Trump's decision in northern Syria has left a potential power vacuum in the area, with security experts and former U.S. officials calling the move "a gift" to U.S. adversaries such as Russia and Iran.

  3. 1) Kurdish civilian dead.

    2) Kurdish civilians dead.

    3) Kurdish civilians dead.

    4) Kurdish civilians dead.

    5) Kurdish civilians dead.

  4. Seems this was doomed anyway since the Kurds wanted their own country. Dont see Syria turning into Kurdria anytime soon in the next hundred years or more.

  5. Trump spells trouble “trubble”.

  6. Several days before a turkey’s Invasion turkey the media and the United States as well as the World At Large were told by Trump that we were removing our special forces and other troops from the region.

    It turns out the special forces were never removed.

    Turkey has at all points avoided any kind of military confrontation with the United States, in fact they benefit fairly heavily from various types of Aid in multiple sectors including military. It is in their best interest not to engage in any kind of military confrontation with the United States in any way.

    Artillery attacks are targeted attacks that require Target identification and heavy reconnaissance. It is highly unlikely that turkey would have attacked United States Special Forces knowingly.

    What is more likely is that a president who is heavily under the gun and threat of impeachment, told turkey that it had vacated our troops from the area when we had not and then had used backchannels to feed coordinates of supposed Kurdish Rebel locations that included the Special Forces compound, thereby initiating an attack that could have killed the Special Forces members.

    This would have given him the president a chance to start a wider war with turkey, completely controlling The Narrative of the media and diverting all attention away from his impeachment into the new military actions. It is a well-known fact in Washington that it is almost impossible to unseat a wartime president. This only makes sense through the lens of a false flag attack.
