  1. "A man speaking Russian posted video of an abandoned U.S. base in northern Syria on Tuesday, the same day that Russia announced that its forces had moved into the region." The video, in which the man says, "Let's see how the Americans lived," was posted on social media from the empty base near Manbij, in Aleppo province about 15 miles from the Turkish border.
  2. The United States is now bombing its own base in Syria as Turkish forces prepare to take it over "Here’s how The Wall Street Journal described it: Our military, quote, carried out air strikes to destroy the Syrian headquarters of the American campaign to destroy ISIS after rapidly pulling Americans from the base.’ We bombed our own headquarters in the fight against ISIS because they were about to be taken over by Turkish backed forces" https://www.politicususa.com/2019/10/16/trump-bombing-america-base-syria-turkey-takes-over.html ""I captured ISIS. Mattis said it would take two years. I captured them in one month. President Trump on Wednesday called his former Defense secretary James Mattis "the world's most overrated general" during a tense meeting with lawmakers on the situation in Syria." "You know why? He wasn’t tough enough," "Donald Trump has hailed his decision to withdraw US troops in Syria, paving way for a Turkish offensive, as “strategically brilliant”, declaring that the Kurds he had abandoned were “much safer now” and were anyway “not angels”. The Turkish campaign against Kurdish fighters has strengthened Moscow’s hand in the region and signalled the diminishinginfluence of the US.
  3. " “Syria may have some help with Russia, and that's fine. It's a lot of sand. They've got a lot of sand over there, so there's a lot of sand that they can play with,” he said, later adding: “I wish them all a lot of luck.” Trump on Wednesday appeared unconcerned by the prospect of Moscow exerting new geopolitical influence amid the escalating military confrontation.
  4. " “I told Trump: ‘You get very angry with the media from time to time. You are now under their influence. Don’t listen to them, you are a strong leader. This does not befit a strong leader,'” he said, according to the Yeni Safak daily. " “When we take a look at Mr Trump’s Twitter posts, we can no longer follow them. We cannot keep track,” Erdogan told
  5. Trump Just Blamed Barack Obama For His Impeachment 98 people are talking about this
  6. And those who need most to divise Europe are the US , China, Russia - and after that blame that Europe is week, which is true.
  7. And that explains why Trump is so easy with Saudi Arabia? “Daesh has a mother: the invasion of Iraq. But it also has a father: Saudi Arabia and its religious-industrial complex. Until that point is understood, battles may be won, but the war will be lost.” But go on, blame the French, it's cheap
  8. ISIS is a network, that is not limited within borders, to make it clear to you, not only national jihadists can target your country. It's even the opposite for it's then more difficult to track them.
  9. Europe has paid its fair share of US fiascos in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria , and it's just the beginning of it.
  10. By turning his back overnignt to his allies, Trump surprised even Erdogan who seized the opportunity. The US had the hand on the Coalition logistik and left with it, leaving other allied special forces with no other choice than to leave to. The French had absolutely no say regarding Syria - Only The US, Russia and Iran did. The US themeselves did not have enough time to remove their national jihadists, so the outcome of Trump's improvisation is far worse that the mess he inherited, That's how the world sees it, live, and with évidences.
