  1. Trump needs the Republicans to stand behind him if he wants to avoid being removed from office, and stuff like this will bite him later.

  2. Donny is working hard for that Nobel peace prize.

  3. >This decision aids America’s adversaries, Russia

    Yeah, Either the President clearly does not view Russia as an Adversary, or…

  4. What is UN or NATO role nowadays if a single person can authorise attack on a foreign country!?

  5. Unfortunately, I’m not sure two prominent Republicans acknowledging troop withdrawals as the biggest mistake of Trump’s presidency counts as Republicans turning against him.

    I must say though, much as this rankles, and it does, the YPG are hero allies and this is a betrayal, its hard to see how this won’t be popular domestically.

    Bringing troops home. That is what it is. Pulling American servicemen and women out of harms way.

    That is a vote winner.

  6. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.reuters.com/article/us-syria-security-turkey-usa/turkey-opens-ground-assault-on-syrias-kurds-u-s-republicans-turn-on-trump-idUSKBN1WO05Z) reduced by 91%. (I’m a bot)

    > AKCAKALE, Turkey – Turkish troops and their Syrian rebel allies attacked Kurdish militia in northeast Syria on Wednesday, pounding them with air strikes and artillery before starting a cross-border ground operation that could transform an eight-year-old war.

    > Trump called the Turkish assault a "Bad idea" and said he did not endorse it.

    > Erdogan's communications director Fahrettin Altun said Turkey had no ambition in northeastern Syria except to neutralize the threat against Turkish citizens and to liberate the local people from what he called "The yoke of armed thugs".

  7. Turning on Trump means stopping him. Making shocked Pikachu faces is not turning on him.

  8. ‘He said they wouldnt! He said they wouldnt! Its not my fault!’

  9. The only reason Republicans are against this is because it does not suit Israeli Interest
