    Listening to trump talk about the Kurds not helping the US in WW2 is sickening. He doesn't know anything about WW2 or he'd know it took a fair bit of convincing to get the US to enter the war. Until Pearl Harbour it was a money maker..

    More than ever Trump's "presidency" is like a bad thriller movie. Trump is like a cartoon, a poster boy of an evil dictator. Except its real and now he has blood on his hands but he doesn't care. Sending the Kurds to their certain demise without consulting anyone, that's just sinister.

    The famous 500-year-old Treaty Oak in Austin, Texas was poisoned in 1989. Efforts to save it were largely unsuccessful. That tree represents our republic. If we don't get rid of Trump asap, he's going to poison our republic. Then global warming won't matter. He'll plunge the world into a Freedom Ice Age.

    Now you Republicans wake up trump doesn't think not does he care about people or consequences, especially if they don't effect him and or his immediate family circle.
    Trump believes he'll probably be impeached or thrown out of office, he cannot keep all of his criminal activities a secret much longer, so he's leaving for Russia soon and it'll be someone else's problem…

    A perfect example of the value Trump places in allies, be they military, political or personal. He will throw them under the bus on a whim, or if someone else whispers in his ear that they can offer him more.
    He blathers on about how much he values loyalty, but to him that's a one way street.

    Why would any other nation or group ever trust the US government again after what Donald Trump did to the Kurds?

    Richard Nixon (R) ran away from American commitments and allies in South Vietnam. Ronald Reagan (R) ran away from Beirut, Lebanon after one single attack against the Marine Barracks. George H.W. Bush (R) fomented revolution in Iraq during Gulf War I and refused to take out Sadaam Hussein when he had the chance. Now, Donald Trump runs away from US allies and commitments in Syria.

The least this narcissist could do out of respect for those dying in Syria at this moment is to shut his mouth about the whole thing. Whatever comes out of his mouth won't wash the blood from his and all his enablers hands, including those of the voters who gave him power.

    It requires a corrupt electorate, and a electoral college, to put a corrupt piece of crap in the White House. Republicans and their supporters own what is happening in Syria. They knew who they were voting for and they did it anyway. Trump and Hillary were not the only candidates, so yes they actually did have a choice and who they chose says who they really are inside. Spoiled brats with zero morals.

    Trump is mistaken to say that the Kurds have not helped the US before. Everybody knows that there was a Kurdish squadron providing air cover in the siege of Jamestown during the War of Independence, the Kurds came to the rescue with a tank regiment at Appamatox and they also relieved pressure on the American front lines during WW1 with small tactical nuclear missiles. Yes, they went missing at Normandy. How can we ever forgive them? Now we have revenge!

    America Created Al-Qaeda and the ISIS Terror Group, Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA and funded by the Saudis, in order to defeat the Russians in Afghanistan.

    America’s relationship with Al Qaeda has always been a love-hate affair

    Trump has opened the door to genocide of the very people who have fought and died under the direction of US forces defending their mutual interests against ISIS. Kurds are the most strategic asset in the region as morale amongst US troops breaks watching Kurdish comrades and families murdered while under Trump the USA becomes a nation of oath-breakers, con-artists and cowards.

    Great Britain in 1812
    Mexico in 1846
    Spain in 1898
    Germany in 1917 and 1941

You could feel the explosions in your body in your home, and I thought it was a completely bizarre experience. I also remember that the king of Dubai was being interviewed, and saying that his country was in the middle of a very dangerous neighborhood. Then he said, "This is not Mr. Roger's neighborhood."
