Trump slams ‘ridiculous Endless Wars’ as he defends dramatic shift in Syria policy

The fundamental issue here is being missed. A better president who recognized the potential conflict between Turkey and the Kurds would have acted in advance to find a solution that did not abandon the Kurds. Because Trump is myopic. unsophisticated and self-serving, he does not formulate effective foreign policy and has promoted "abandonment" as his chief strategy (consider the Iran deal, the Global Warminng agreement, the Intermediate range Nuclear Missile treaty, etc. etc). This was a preventable "crisis" if we had an adequate president.


All politicians are self serving, I don't care who, what, why, when or how, I do not want to spill american blood in muslim wars of choice. you do. If you have ever seen combat or the results of combat, you wouldn't be so gung ho.

You should try to provide evidence for your factual assertions.
"Trayvon could have been my son"
"The police acted stupidly"
Inviting BLM to the WH. Consulting with a race baiter like Al Sharpton on racial problems. All facts.

"self-serving"? not necessarily. Of course it is a vague term and you could argue that everyone is self-serving. Notably, you did not object to the other descriptors.

Only those who go from crisis to crisis without any effort to act proactively would support Trump's abandonment. A better president would have made efforts to find some better resolution beside abandonment. He owns this problem and his solution should not be acceptable to anyone.

Obama did the same thing with the iraq withdrawal, that gave us ISIS, how can you be so hypocritical here?

Trump's lies will never do as much damage as Obama's did to this country. The hate and division he (Obama) inspired is alive and well and is showcased in many of your posts.

To make them evidence for your assertion you need explain how the statements or actions you claim to have occurred actually caused more "hate and division" by Obama than Trump has caused. You might want to consider how "hate and division" within a country might be measured. Otherwise your statements just become background noise by an uninformed Trump supporter.

Are we discussing Trump or Obama?
If you claim that something you think Obama did wrongly justifies a bad Trump decision.... that is false equivalence fallacy.
So, once again, why do you support the Trump foreign policy which seems to be more about walking away than finding solutions?

oh its the "don't point out my hypocrisy game!"


I've already stated I supported obama's withdrawal, Just wish he'd drone isis more than random people in the mid east. Same with trump, and now the kurds.

See that's called being objective.


Don't be so tribal.




So how many americans are you willing to send to risk thier lives for the kurds? You have any of age kids or grandkids? will you encourage them to join the fight or is that other american's problem?

Ahh, probably never seen combat or you'd be far less cavalier, especially as a leftist, supporting sending other peoples sons and daughters to wars of choice. I see a lot of your type on the internet.
And you're probably a typical opinionated, intolerant rightie scoring low on "emotional intelligence".

Oh, I LOVE to talk about me. I'm a first generation American of working poor irish parents, I grew up on the lower east side of nyc in the 70's and 80's as well as newark nj, I was both in the military and worked as a private security contractor, And during that time I got a degree in psychology, then my masters at NYU. I also trained to become a IT security specialist with the goal of getting into IT forensics, and was quite the natural at it. Such a natural at it, I started my own company. I have a 100 employees today and am Fit, Rich, and Trim. ;) My company runs itself these days so I mostly work with my own charity for severely disabled veterans, as well as city harvest, fisher house, as well as being on the board of a youth club you are very aware of if I mentioned it. Some say I'm blessed, but "I built this". ;)




ironically, you accuse me of scoring low on emotional intelligence while you advocate sending other people's sons and daughters off to a war of choice. You dun fucked up my friend... between me and you in this particular discussion, seems you are scoring lower than I would on "emotional intelligence"


Your turn, I want to hear all about you!
