While corporate media portrayed Trump's withdrawal of US troops from Syria as a Christmas gift to Russia's Putin, veteran Middle East reporter Patrick Cockburn says this is infantile and conspiratorial. NATO member Turkey stands to gain most, and could launch an attack on Kurdish forces in the northeast.

Agreed. As soon as I heard about the withdrawal I thought the Kurds are fucked.

All the gains the Kurds made in the last few years are about to get wiped out.

Bruins, regarding your past 2 posts, I don’t have time or the interest to read about the stuff you mentioned but I appreciate your expertise.

I’m basing my opinion on the fact that pretty much any expert that knows anything about the Middle East crisis says Trump should not pull out of Syria yet. What does he base his decisions on? He doesn’t even read. He just goes with his gut. He’s probably never read a history book in his life and he doesn’t listen to the experts that advise him. His staff turnover is unprecedented.

r iAnyways, I pissed off KOP who is a closet trump supportet seems and started hurling insults at me haha

These delusions you have are unhealthy. I've always been a trump supporter. My only disappointment is he isn't even further to the right. And I'm mildly amused that you are unable to realize the fundamental effectiveness of a wall. Hurr durr hungary is only 100 miles blah blah blah.

Do you realize that the majority of Americans don’t support the wall idea? Many highly educated people whose opinions are respected. Are you mildly amused at that too? You’re in the minority. You’re also in the minority as a trump supporter.

My favorite Mattis story: he took 30 seconds to approve an attack on the village of Mukaradeeb in April 2004 which killed 42 civilians, including 13 kids, who were attending a wedding. “I don’t have to apologize for the conduct of my men,” he said later.

Mattis took his ball and went home to pout because Trump had the audacity to stop perpetuating a war we don't need and bring troops home. Fuck em.

"President Trump needs your help. Sign the petition to build the wall!"

I didn't know we governed via online petitions these days. :lol:

To be fair, any petition to change any policy that receives enough signatures must be paid the president's attention.

Also to be fair, if someone tagged Trump on twitter about this petition he'd address it a hell of a lot sooner.
We all need some place we can go away to, some place where we can be who we should have been instead of who we are.
