  1. This is trumps equivalent to shooting someone on 5th ave Manhattan and nobody doing a damn thing about it because he’s trump.

  2. I’m not from America but I follow the news and wow I thought people were exaggerating when they said the majority there are absolute imbeciles.
    Now I see it must be true, how is this guy getting away with so much? It’s been problem after problem the last 3 years and the majority just eat whatever he says out the palm of his hand and it’s weird AF. I mean I come from South Africa, our government is corrupt and we’re basically a 3rd world country but even WE managed to impeach our president about a year ago. Yours can just about start world war 3 with a fuckin phone call

  3. It almost feels like he can sense the end of his presidency coming, and he’s trying to cause as many problems as he possibly can as fast as he can before the shit hits the fan.

    Either that, or his handler senses the end…

  4. When climate change starts to hit seriously, we’ll be left to die by our politicians and industry, just like the Kurds and the US soldiers left behind have been left to die now that they’re no longer useful.

    We are all the Kurds. We’ll be next.

  5. Trump is going to get US soldiers killed to appease a dictator, and his supporters approve of it.

  6. I wonder what President traitor is going to do about this? Given that he loves men like Erdogan and his oligarch friends

  7. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.france24.com/en/20191012-turkey-ramps-up-syria-assault-on-kurdish-forces-us-troops-come-under-fire) reduced by 85%. (I’m a bot)

    > Battles raged in Syria as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed to press on with a deadly assault against Kurdish forces, while the Pentagon said Friday US troops came under artillery fire from Turkish positions.

    > Turkey's third such operation since the start of the war in Syria has been met with international condemnation over what many see as the blatant US betrayal of the Kurdish forces, who have lost 11,000 fighters in the campaign against IS. As the offensive went into its third day, the SDF were fending for themselves, trying to repulse multiple ground attacks along a roughly 120-kilometre stretch of the border.

    > Erdogan hopes to create a buffer zone between the border and territory controlled by Syrian Kurdish forces, who have links with Turkey's own Kurdish rebels.
