What's hilarious is the fact that you don't realise the strategic importance of that small contingent of soldiers.

Now that's truly hilarious!😂

 

No, you're wrong. I'm aware of how awesome our Special Ops people are. I'm also aware there are plenty of countries in the region with a vested interest who can and should easily pick up the slack. We should have never been there in the first place.

Oh, yes, of course it was! 

 

 

Well yes, as it relates to our troops, obviously.

The US really shouldn't be involved over there, but putting the hurt of Edrogan is definitely needed. That guy is a cancer. He really needs to be isolated.

and Trump as well

Other countries do have vested interests in the area and a US withdrawal should have been COORDINATED with those countries. I find is suspicious that  the idiot trump withdrew from the area after a phone call with Edrogan (what does Edrogan have over trump?). The idiot trump's advisers including the US military advised against it. So now the ISIS prisoners being guarded by the Kurds are all free. The idiot trump shows his stupidity again. Oh..and lies about it. Please don't be an apologist for the idiot trump.  

You know the cool thing about being president? YOU get to decide, even if your advisers advise against it.

Kurds have claimed 800 ISIS family members escaped a detention camp when guards had to withdraw due to Turkish attacks. A few ISIS fighters have also escaped prisons when these were shelled. ISIS to regenerate?

 

Resettling millions of Syrian refugees in Kurdish areas of North Syria is basically going to mean ethnic cleansing of Kurds there.

 

So, now that the Kurds have done a deal with Assad, will Erdogan stop his attacks? Or will it be war? If war, might be the end of Erdogan, with any luck.

And you get to take responsibility. You familiar with "the buck stops here." Except in Trump's case, when the buck is ia bad one, it's always someone else's fault.

Nope. I gladly say the buck stops with Trump. He is Commander-in-Chief and thus is entirely responsible for getting our troops out of Syria. Nobody else.

And the ensuing disaster, glad we agree on that.

Erdogan will do as Putin says. Putin wants to secure permanent russian bases in Syria and get the US out. So, probably no war. For Putin controls both Syria and Turkey.
