President Trump Delivers Remarks on Turkey-Syria-Kurds Ceasefire and Agreement: “Great Day for Civilization”…

Funny how that happens. Recep Erdogan realized his Turkish forces were facing off against Kurdish military, the Syrian Army, and Russians. As a result of President Trump proclaiming the NATO ally was all alone; Erdogan was, as we anticipated, naked to an alliance of his enemies. Additionally, the Turkish economy was going to be destroyed by sanctions.

Vice-President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave President Erdogan the only way out that would avoid him being crushed militarily and economically; and simultaneously positioned the deal such that Erdogan could save face domestically and declare a win.  The Kurdish forces will pull back allowing a 20 mile buffer region.

Brilliant all around geopolitical strategy by the Trump administration; and now all the pontificating war-mongers on Capitol Hill seem ridiculous. Here’s President Trump’s presser from the tarmac in Texas. [Video Below – Transcript ADDED]

[Transcript] –  THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you very much. I’m very happy to report tremendous success, with respect to Turkey. And I want to thank President Erdoğan. I want to thank our Vice President Mike Pence, our Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Great job. All of the people that we sent over the last three days. We sent an early group.

This is an amazing outcome. This is an outcome — regardless of how the press would like to damp it down, this was something that they’ve been trying to get for 10 years. You would have lost millions and millions of lives. They couldn’t get it without a little rough love, as I called it. I just put out — they needed a little bit of that at the beginning. And then everybody said, “Wow, this is tougher than we thought.” When those guns start shooting, they tend to do things.

But I will tell you, on behalf of the United States, I want to thank Turkey. I want to thank all of the people that have gotten together and made this happen. This is an incredible outcome.

So you have a 22-mile strip. And for many, many years, Turkey — in all fairness, they’ve had a legitimate problem with it. They had terrorists. They had a lot of people in there that they couldn’t have. They’ve suffered a lot of loss of lives also. And they had to have it cleaned out. But once you start that, it gets to be to a point where a tremendous amount of bad things can happen.

So a process started and we started to negotiate. And I think that, obviously, the sanctions and tariffs were going to be very biting. I’m glad we don’t have to do it. We’ll be taking them off very quickly, as soon as this is finalized.

But this is an incredible outcome. This outcome is something they’ve been trying to get for 10 years — everybody — and they couldn’t get it, other administrations. And they never would’ve been able to get it unless you went somewhat unconventional. I guess I’m an unconventional person.

I took a lot of heat from a lot of people, even some of the people in my own party, but they were there. In the end, they were there. They’re all there. Look, this is about the nation. This isn’t about Republicans or Democrats. This is about our nation.

So, we have a five-day ceasefire. During that five days, the Kurds and other people — they’re going to be taken great care of. They’re going to be moving around — moving out of a safe zone, which is something that Turkey has always wanted.

The ISIS — they call them “Daesh,” but we call them “ISIS.” The ISIS fighters that we have captured, they’ll be under very, very strict control of various different groups. But we will be watching, we will be in charge, and they’ll be under very, very powerful and strict control. And we’ve gotten everything we could’ve ever dreamed of, and we’re also going to be able to bring our people back home. But we’ll be able to have control of ISIS — total. We’ll be able to do whatever we have to do to get the rest of ISIS, wherever they may be. They’re never going to be ruling us.

And I want to thank everybody. And the other thing, I want thank — as a group, I want to thank the Kurds because they were incredibly happy with this solution. This is a solution that really — well, it saved their lives, frankly. It saved their lives.

So we’ve done a great thing for our partner. If we didn’t go this unconventional, tough-love approach, you could’ve never gotten it done. They’ve been trying to do this for many, many years. You could’ve never gotten it done.

So, I want to thank everybody. I want to thank everybody back in Washington.

We’re in Texas now and we’re going to be opening up a phenomenal new plant. One of the greatest men in business — in all of business — is here with us. You know who he is.

And they’re opening up a plant in Texas. The first time, I believe — one of the great companies of the world — first time ever in the United States. And then we’re having a big rally in Dallas tonight at the American Airlines Center. So we look forward to that. We’ve been — they’ve been standing on line for three days, as you know. So it’s a record crowd over in Dallas.

But I didn’t know it was going to work out this quickly. I didn’t know it would work out this well. It’s a great day for the United States. It’s a great day for Turkey. It’s a great day for our partners, who have really worked. I mean, a lot of people questioned some of them; I’m not questioning anybody. They really did. The Kurds were great. It’s a great day for the Kurds. It’s really a great day for civilization. It’s a great day for civilization.

So I just want to thank everybody.

Q Do you expect Congress now to call off their sanctions effort?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, sanctions won’t be necessary because Turkey is doing what they’re doing. I didn’t need Congress for sanctions because I can do sanctions that are tougher than Congress. And I was prepared to do that.

I just want to thank and congratulate though, President Erdoğan. He’s a friend of mine and I’m glad we didn’t have a problem. Because, frankly, he’s a hell of a leader, and he’s a tough man. He’s a strong man. And he did the right thing, and I really appreciate it. And I will appreciate it in the future.

Q Mr. President, isn’t Turkey getting everything they want from this? Don’t they effectively just get control of the safe zone?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, Turkey has a great military power. Turkey is a friend of ours, a neighbor of ours, and they’re a member of NATO. And what Turkey is getting now is they’re not going to have to kill millions of people, and millions of people aren’t going to have to kill them.

I mean, this was going to be a war of lots of other groups coming in; this wasn’t going to stop with Turkey against the Kurds. A lot of different groups were coming in. We might not have been involved. I don’t want to be involved in that kind of a war.

And, by the way, we have the strongest military in the world. But we’ve been there for 10 years. We’ve been in the Middle East for nineteen and a half years. So this was a great thing for everybody. And Turkey is — I really appreciate what they’ve done. They did the right thing. And I have a great respect for the President.

Q Your decision not to keep any of the sanctions in place — doesn’t that effectively let Turkey just get off with no punishment for this incursion?

THE PRESIDENT: No. No. If you let this go, you would’ve lost millions of lives. Don’t forget: Your friend, President Obama, lost more than a half a million lives in a very short period in the same reason — region. We’ve lost very little.

But without that gunfire going back and forth, without those rockets going in both directions, without other countries moving in, and potentially moving in and creating virtually a world war — without all of that happening, you would’ve never been able to make this deal.

We’ve tried — we have tried, but everybody has tried to make this deal for 15 years. They could never do it. It was only when it started — people started seeing how nasty it was going to be. It was going to be very nasty. Not only sanctions and tariffs, the war itself would’ve been very nasty.

So, they did things that they wouldn’t have done. I just put out. Everything agreed to things that, three days ago, they would have never agreed to. That includes the Kurds. The Kurds are now much more inclined to do what has to be done. Turkey is much more inclined to do what has to be done. Turkey wouldn’t have done this three days ago. The Kurds would not have done it three days ago.

This is a situation where everybody is happy. And I’m happy because there’s no fighting. We can bring certainly most of our people back home for the first time in many years.

Q Mr. President, you’re talking about all of this shooting as though it was part of plan. Are you saying that you planned for these people to attack each other so you could resolve it?

THE PRESIDENT: No. No. But I do think this, David: I think it had to be an unconventional solution. Because the conventional solution is to sit down, negotiate, and they’ve done that for 15 years. Actually more than that, I understand. And that was never going to work.

But all of a sudden when they saw — and how nasty it was and how rough it would get; it would get 100 times worse than what was happening. But when they saw the level of nastiness, they said, “Let’s make a deal — everybody together. Let’s make a deal.”

Q Are you sure that this will last more than five days? A lot of stuff can disappear in five days.

THE PRESIDENT: I think so. I think it’s going to last. I think that President Erdoğan is very smart. I think he wants it to last. He wants safety for his people.

Look, say what you want. A lot of bad things happened to Turkey from that district, from that 22-mile stretch. A lot of people in Turkey were killed. So that’s not fair. Nobody likes to mention that. This was a great thing for the Kurds. This was a great thing for Turkey. This is great for everybody.

And, frankly, the thing that I’m most happy about is that we were — I took a lot of heat — but that we were able to do it so fast. I thought this would go on for longer. This was such a smart thing to get it done so fast.

Q Is President Erdoğan still coming next month to the White House?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, now I would say that would be very much open. I would say that, yeah, he would come. He did a terrific thing. He’s a leader. He’s a leader. He had to make a decision. A lot of people wouldn’t have made that decision because they don’t know; they ultimately would’ve made it. But what he did was very smart and it was great for the people of Turkey. And they’re lucky it was him that was making the decision, I will tell you that.

Q The U.S. military — will you leave anybody in this zone to help monitor this ceasefire?

THE PRESIDENT: Yes. We’re going to have people that watch it. And most particularly, we’re going to have people that are watching ISIS. We’ll have people watching. And ISIS will be largely again controlled by the Kurds. Because what a lot of people don’t know: Most of the areas where ISIS is, is outside of the war zone or the 22 miles.

So ISIS will be — very few have gotten out. Most of them have been recaptured. And what’s happened is ISIS is outside of the war zone. So that’s going to be controlled very much by the Kurds, with our supervision.

Q And the Kurdish general, General Mazloum, who you talked to before — are you going to talk to him again to get him to —

THE PRESIDENT: He’s very happy. They’ve spoken to him. The Kurds are very happy. Turkey is very happy. The United States is very happy. And you know what? Civilization is very happy. It’s a great thing for civilization.

Thank you, everybody.

    No one has mentioned that in 120 hours, Erdogan will still control a 20-mile deep strip of eastern Syria, which was his intention all along. He will not have lost as many troops if they had to fight the Kurds for weeks.
    Also, I predict that when the Kurds try to evacuate along the roads with their weapons, they will either be disarmed or killed.

      That is one of the more transparent truths in this whole mess. Another is that we are better off not involved in centuries old feuds, which is all it amounts to.

      The Turkish islamist proxies were already BEATEN by the Kurds along with Syrians fighting along them. Turkey wont attack Syria with Russia present!

      2 days ago an offensive by Turkish forces was slaughtered by the Kurds when they showed up behind enemy lines through tunnels. At least 50 dead Islamists. Turks took no more than a few miles of farmland.

      Kurds are aligned with Assad/Iran and Russia. So, there is that to consider. Buffer zone is the realistic start of a solution. Something that has not happened since Obama dropped the pixy dust of democracy on the region and poof, just like that, Libya and Syria were totally destabilized into warring factions spreading mayhem across the earth.

    Foreign countries being under the mistaken impression that the United States can or will defend them at all costs can itself endanger peace, as they can act recklessly toward their adversaries. The Baltic countries, Ukraine, Taiwan, Japan – these countries have a responsibility to try to get along with their neighbors and a responsibility to defend themselves. The recent experience of the Kurds should be instructive. The US is not only unwilling to police the planet, we’re also unable to do so.

    What a fantastic deal. A few days ago the Kurds publicly announced their fighting forces were allying up with the Syrian Army. The Syrian Army and some Russian forces moved into the area and joined with the Kurds. In the area were ISIS & PKK (the radical Muslims & Kurds).

    With this deal, it looks like all of the radical fighters in Syria are going to be rounded up where ever they are. Maybe that’s why Mitt is going bonkers. The good Kurds & Muslims, Turkey, Syria & Russia, with the U.S. watching everything, are going to wipe away the globalists’ main fighting force. The neocons suffered a huge defeat.

    Here’s the full text of the joint US-Turkey statement:

    The US and Turkey reaffirm their relationship as fellow members of NATO. The US understands Turkey’s legitimate security concerns on Turkey’s southern border.
    Turkey and the US agree that the conditions on the ground, northeast Syria in particular, necessitate closer coordination on the basis of common interests.
    Turkey and the US remain committed to protecting NATO territories and NATO populations against all threats with the solid understanding of “one for all and all for one”.
    The two countries reiterate their pledge to uphold human life, human rights, and the protection of religious and ethnic communities.
    Turkey and the US are committed to D-ISIS/DAESH activities in northeast Syria. This will include coordination on detention facilities and internally displaced persons from formerly ISIS/DAESH-controlled areas, as appropriate.
    Turkey and the US agree that counter-terrorism operations must target only terrorists and their hideouts, shelters, emplacements, weapons, vehicles and equipment.
    The Turkish side expressed its commitment to ensure safety and well-being of residents of all population centers in the safe zone controlled by the Turkish Forces (safe zone) and reiterated that maximum care will be exercised in order not to cause harm to civilians and civilian infrastructure.
    Both countries reiterate their commitment to the political unity and territorial integrity of Syria and UN-led political process, which aims at ending the Syrian conflict in accordance with UNSCR 2254.
    The two sides agreed on the continued importance and functionality of a safe zone in order to address the national security concerns of Turkey, to include the re-collection of YPG heavy weapons and the disablement of their fortifications and all other fighting positions.
    The safe zone will be primarily enforced by the Turkish Armed Forces and the two sides will increase their cooperation in all dimensions of its implementation.
    The Turkish side will pause Operation Peace Spring in order to allow the withdrawal of YPG from the safe zone within 120 hours. Operation Peace Spring will be halted upon completion of this withdrawal.
    Once Operation Peace Spring is paused, the US agrees not to pursue further imposition of sanctions under the Executive Order of October 14, 2019, Blocking Property and Suspending Entry of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Syria, and will work and consult with Congress, as appropriate, to underline the progress being undertaken to achieve peace and security in Syria, in accordance with UNSCR 2254. Once Operation Peace Spring is halted as per paragraph 11 the current sanctions under the aforementioned Executive Order shall be lifted.
    Both parties are committed to work together to implement all the goals outlined in this Statement.

The ‘better deal’ has been done by President Trump. NOT ONE American has been so much as bruised. Think about that. How much money has been spent in this deal out of Americans pockets? ZERO.

    Rand Paul (R-KY) shut down an effort by Democrat Chuck Schumer (NY) to rebuke President Trump over his decision to withdraw US troops from northern Syria.

      Key point from Rand Paul. (and Trump saw this – and just got us out of the way so ‘deals could be made’… “We had been preventing having them talk to Assad. Now they’ve made an alliance with Assad, and the irony of this is: It may end up being the best thing that ever happened to them.”

    Brilliant leader. PDJT gave these two warring idiots time to duke it out and it only lasted them 3 days? I guess Erdogan and the kurds realized our stable genius is not joking. PDJT gave them enough rope to hang themselves. Bravo, PDJT.

    President Trump, MUST be nominated for a Peace Prize. When we compare what he has done, to the fraud of Obama being give a Peace Prize (for starting this whole mess in Syria – with Hillary – causing hundreds of thousands of deaths of innocent people) it kind of blows my brains out.

    Good question. Americans don’t understand that the “Syrian PKK Kurds” are not the Peshmerga Kurds who fought along side US troops in Iraq. The PKK is listed as terrorist organization by Turkey, the EU and the US.

    Meanwhile, 7000 miles closer to home, the Sinaloa cartel has turned a city of a million people into a war zone.

    George W. Bush has too much time on his hands. Just this week he was with his brother from another mother Bubba Clinton criticizing Trump for not spelling the blood of thousand of Americans and spending trillions of America’s wealth in the Middle East for less than nothing.

    And now he is commenting on this blog. What an arrogant, ignorant loser. McCain is finally proud of him.

    If buffer zone equates to a DMZ then it should work as a long term solution for “the region” just like one on the Korean Penn. And, as a bonus, maybe the EU to might insert “peacekeepers” in the buffer zone and let them put their lives on the line. Sort of having the EU pay the price of their orations.

    But of course, there will be a variety of new face-offs, Kurds vs. Turks, Russian-Syrian proxies vs. regional ethnics plus damnable ISIS terrorists. But the essence is, no shooting– and in particular, no American lives lost for swivel-hip sellouts typical of Benedict Barack Gangrenous and his kin.

    So Pres. Trump rings up the Kurds’ commanding general for a first-hand briefing, presenting Erdogan with current, unadulturated facts vs. State Department diplo-gobble. Posting Ankara a businesslike letter-of-intent stating U.S. geopolitical/economic options for a regional stand-down, Trump then dispatches VP Pence with Secretary Pompeo to calm Erdogan’s carpet-chewing tantrum. Exposed, isolated, Erdogan caves; Trump hymns Turkey’s debacle as a statesmanlike Peace Effort (!)… and history records a case-study for the ages, worthy of Disraeli, Richelieu, or Tallyrand.

    Rats may think their high-chair banging “narrative” defines life-and-death reality. But bizarrely asinine poseurs from Pelosi to Schumer, Hoyer, Schiff, will find their snuffle-grunting Gruber-esque charades have rolled historic gutterballs.
