White House Releases President Trump Warning Letter to President Erdogan of Turkey – October 9th…

President Trump prefers to use targeted economic weapons instead of the U.S. military forces against foreign adversaries.  This is especially true if foreign actions are taking place amid the complex circle of geopolitical interests, against the interests of allies.

Today the White House has released a letter sent by President Trump to President Erdogan of Turkey dated October 9th.   The letter was sent two days after President Trump made the decision to pull 28 members of the U.S. military out of harms way; two days before President Trump outlined the sanctions against Turkey; and five days before President Trump initiated those sanctions through Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

The warning is clear.  President Trump is clear-eyed about the motives and intentions of the Turkish president, and Ergodan’s ideological alignment with political Islam, via The Muslim Brotherhood.

One of the reasons this strategy is better than any military action is simply because Turkey is a unique NATO ally, and the NATO alliance within Europe is insufferably incapable and unwilling to take action to defend their interests.

European NATO members want the benefits of a perpetual U.S. military presence. That EU outlook is simply beyond the limits of what President Trump is willing to do.

President Trump wants to bring our troops home.

President Trump made it clear that any action by Turkey into Syria was unilateral; there will be no assistance by the U.S. on any aspect; including if Turkey was counter-attacked by Russia/Syria or organized Kurdish forces.

Essentially, Trump left Erdogan naked to a myriad of his enemies.

The U.S. part of the NATO shield is removed. The Europeans will not evoke the NATO defense treaty without the U.S. Heck, the EU is essentially spineless without the power of the U.S. military.  Additionally, President Trump is calling out the duplicity of the entire situation by calling all of their bluffs. President Trump is calling-out: NATO, weak EU ‘allies’ and Turkey.

In essence, this White House approach is a major Gordian knot being cut. It is unlikely President Erdogan expected to have this framework made so public.

With Europe refusing to stand-up to defend their own interests, President Trump is removing U.S. forces from the untenable position of guarding all the big cat cages, ad infinitum, to keep the zoo status intact.

Instead, President Trump is going to support the Arab coalition and the GCC that has been assembling a military coalition to protect itself from the Muslim Brotherhood.

That, along with the strategic need to keep global oil prices low to offset any influence by Iran and Russia, is why President Trump is willing to support Saudi Arabia with more troops; while simultaneously withdrawing from Syria where the U.S. was having to stand alone to protect the interests of Europeans who will not protect themselves.

In one regional area the U.S. will support and defend Israel, Egypt and Jordan. In the Southern region the U.S. will support the Gulf Cooperation Council (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Yemen, Bahrain and Qatar).

Will political Islam likely have a resurgence in the region, and will Recep Erdogan rise as the head of the Ottoman Empire once again? The former is likely, the latter is unknown.

President Trump is correctly withdrawing U.S. troops from a position of adversarialism against a NATO member. Why should the U.S. protect the interests of allies who will not stand-up to protect themselves…

President Trump is correct.

President Trump will use economic weapons against Turkey…. And, in keeping with the economic doctrine, Europe is also in the cross-hairs. President Trump will use economic weapons against the EU for creating this mess, and refusing to defend themselves.

President Trump will use military weapons to protect allies that are: (A) willing to protect themselves, and (B) willing to pay for the support of the U.S. military protection.

It is really a common sense doctrine… Help those who help themselves.

This is one of those weird “be careful what you wish for” scenarios for President Erdogan, because in his lust to recreate the Ottoman Empire he just might get removed. By isolating Erdogan, President Trump effectively left him naked to an alliance of his enemies

After President Trump talked to Kurdish General Mazloum Kobani Abdi, the commander of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, President Trump then discussed the options available to President Erdogan. As a result of that conversation, Erdogan requested the U.S. mediate negotiations.

Erdogan’s request happened immediately after President Trump signed an executive order [See Here] triggering the sanction authority of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

        Poor Steny, Nancy & Chuck. They got tricked (by their hubris) into requesting a meeting with President Trump at the White House. Commander in Chief had his head Military General at his side. Didn’t matter, Nancy went on the attack anyway. After a couple minutes President Trump called Nancy a 3rd grade politician, showed them who was Boss. , Steny, Chuck & Nancy ran away in total defeat.

          Its comical watching people spout off about the Industrial-Military complex and all its alleged riches. Almost like listening to democrat talking points. There are Billionaire political donors who are worth more individually then most of the Military Equipment providers in the US, even more than several of them combined.

          Is there corruption in the DoD and “Military-Industrial” complex that needs to be addressed? Yes there is. The really big money is not on the military side of the conflicts, “war is diplomacy and politics by another means”. By all means follow the money but follow the proper money trails.

          Consider that among the largest defense companies:
          Lockheed has net worth of $110 Billion (Commercial and Military)
          Boeing is worth about $120 Billion (Commercial and Military)
          Raytheon is worth about $60 Billion (Nearly all military)

    Essentially to support Trump’s approach is to admit that the last 18 years of US foreign policy in the ME has been a complete, unmitigated disaster that has accomplished none of our strategic objectives.. Republicans want to protect Bush from bearing the blame for this and Democrats want to protect Obama. So we spend trillions of dollars, have thousands of US soldiers killed or wounded and have no chance of an outcome that advances the interests of the US. If anything, all we have done is advance the interests of Iran and political Islam over the past 18 years..

    Here is the problem. Syria has a road to market in Europe but no goats. Iran has goats but no way to get them to market. Turkey and Russia wants Syria’s road so they can control the flow of goats to market and not the Syrians or Kurds or Russians. The Kurds have no road and no goats but are for sell to the highest bidder. All involved that buy weapons from Americans go under the heading of ally. America has its own roads and its own goats and does not need to be involved in any part of the quarrel. The politicians we hear squawking the loudest are the ones being paid to get weapons to the fight and want a piece of the goat action. Goat-(see fossil fuels)

    President Trump made some more telephone calls to foreign leaders.

    Some people believe that every child’s behavioural problem can be solved with more corporal punishment. It’s not true.

    Some people believe that every societal problem can be solved with more incarceration. It’s not true.

    Some people believe that every international dispute can be solved with more troops and killing. It is simply not true.

    Trump is correct to get us out of Syria.

    He is just as correct today as President Eisenhower was in 1954 when he (Eisenhower) declined to get the US involved militarily in support of the French. At Dien Bien Phu, Vietnam. (Dien Bien Phu, and Eisenhower’s handling of it, used to be taught in most every high school in America.)

    President Eisenhower — who knew a thing or two about war — believed that military power and economic power are inextricably linked.

    Donald Trump understands this. We all should be grateful for this.

    = = = = = =

    Those who advocate for “limited war” and “meaningful air strikes” either do not understand their naivete; or, worse, they are working for military contractors — which is another thing that Eisenhower knew about.

    Our nation owes a debt of sincere gratitude to President Trump and his current team of advisers.

      By the way, the country ran a budget surplus for the last three years of Eisenhower’s administration.

      These things did not happen by accident. Just saying.

      What a pathetic trio of Progressive reprobates!

      The (priceless) look on Pelosi’s face is her realization and acceptance of complete and utter political annihilation by Orange Man Bad.

    Serious question…Why is the uniparty going ballistic over this? Is there a deep state operation that is now shut down? Has a source of corruption been taken away? Is it that congresscritters have lost leverage with the players in this part of the middle east because the US is no longer there? Does this move expose the commie Kurds/Muzzie Brohood to harm? What gives?

    Releasing this letter now is a chessboard position destroying gambit against the Dems and Miss Lindsey. Eerily similar to releasing the transcript of the Zelenskyy call 12 hours before Schiff tried his whistleblower version stunt.
    And the brilliance of this letter release now is emphasized by the unpublished attachment noted in the letter, Kurdish General Masloum’s prior letter to PDJT making prior consession commitments nobody knew about that PDJT forwarded to Erdogan BEFORE he invaded. Showing how hard PDJT had been working the Syria Kurd issue out of the public eye. A political MOAB.

    1. Pelosi had just gotten a ‘bipartisan’ Syria pullout condemnation resolution passed this morning. This letter is a naked rebuke to that resolution.
    2. Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell, and McCarthy went to the White House this afternoon to discuss Syria post resolution, but before this letter was known to the. For whatever reason (rumors are flying that Pelosi said something inappropriate and PDJT responded) she stormed out. Now Her version and McCarthy’s version are dueling on MSM as I write this—but MSM is still ignoring the letter. Fake news!
    3. MSM has misquoted today’s PDJT’s morning Italy presser, and no one except NPR has issued a correction. According to the presser transcript Sundance posted earlier today, PDJT said (paraphrase): ‘They have a border problem. BUT its not our border.’ He did NOT say, as reported, ‘Not our problem’. This letter release totally destroys that Fake News narrative. He was and is working to resolve the border problem he inherited, but not militarily.

    We’re going through such political calamity here because one side can’t swallow their pride and admit they got beat by someone that’s a lot more intelligent than them.
