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.

    Man, he’s good. As much as I love our Constitution – and I’d never change it – I still wish he could be President for more than two terms. I personally feel he’s owed an extra term just because of how he’s been treated, but even so, for the sake of America’s future, it must remain two terms. My prayer is that God is making him seven times as effective as he would have been without the rabid Left nipping at his heels 24/7.

      I disagree! Not only is he owed another term, I don’t believe that the corruption in DC can be cleaned up in just five more years. A nation-wide signature campaign for a special one-time-only mulligan might give President Trump enough time to make a dent in the crime and corruption, otherwise I’m not at all sure that anyone else will ever be able finish the purifying of our government back to Constitutional principles. Without major surgery our republic will fade away and die in the putrid swamp that DC has become! Who else will fill his shoes!? I can’t think of anyone who can match what is taking place now.

            If I have logged out of WP and then shut down, but later power up and come back onto CTH fresh again, here is how I refresh my WP login:
            1. I first scroll down to *any* comment,
            2. hit Reply under that comment
            3. see that under the open Reply box, WP has not recognized me,
            4. I immediately click on the WP icon that is under the open Reply box, then
            5. wait…….and let the screen refresh
            6. after it refreshes I can see my GB Bari avatar and that WP has recognized me.
            7. Then I simply click Cancel reply without making a reply.
            8. Then I go to a good comment and click the ‘Like’ star under it,
            9. WAIT several seconds (maybe up to 10-15 secs. on a real busy night)…..for the screen to refresh automatically.
            10. When it does, it shows my “like” next to that star.

            From that point forward in the session, I can ‘Like’ and I can Reply.

            PS – if the internet is busy, sometimes comments can take upwards of 30+ seconds to post after I click the Post button. But if the screen does not refresh after 30 seconds, DO NOT HIT THE POST BUTTON AGAIN. Instead, manually refresh the entire webpage (click the refresh icon in the URL box up top of the window). That will reset the CTH page to the top. So after the page refreshes, scroll down to where you posted your comment and it will likely be posted there in the correct place.. 🙂

            PS – your browser can NOT have all sorts of ad blockers turned on and Javascript disabled that blocks WP, or prevent WP from depositing a cookie in your cache. If you won’t allow WP to recognize your identity from a cookie in your cache, it’s no wonder you have to keep logging in….

            Hope these tips help someone….

      Read my lips — I don’t CARE if Syria….a country barely functional….thinks that the “won” with this deal!

      As to “the Syrian people” — to which of the 27 armed factions are you referring?

      Isaiah 17 v:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from being a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

      2 The cities of Aroer are forsaken: they shall be for flocks, which shall lie down, and none shall make them afraid.

      3 The fortress also shall cease from Ephraim, and the kingdom from Damascus, and the remnant of Syria: they shall be as the glory of the children of Israel, saith the Lord of hosts.

      Snail mail, this is true but look at how they got more flushed out into the open. Our president is brilliant at doing this.

      Their actions were so blatant that even people not following politics could see the Rino traitors for who they are. They’re not representatives of their constituents but traitors lining their pockets with military industrial complex money.

      At least they heard from a lot of us who are awake and fighting the good fight. They know that we know they’re swamp critters of the lowest order.

    “Brilliant all around geopolitical strategy by the Trump administration; and now all the pontificating war-mongers on Capitol Hill seem ridiculous. “

    And so Donald Trump recited Voltaire’s prayer – “Dear Lord, please make my enemies ridiculous” – and the Lord granted his prayer even more than He had Voltaire’s.

    Romney is an idiot.

    I so concluded, decisively, in the Fall of ’18 when I was in a small room in Utah with him and a few other Republicans. I asked him if we was satisfied with the results we have obtained with our 18 years of war in the Middle East and Five Trillion Dollars expended.

    Romney replied, and I quote, “It was only Four Trillion Dollars”.

    Only a couple of stanzas, because I don’t know how to make it ‘fold up’, but once again this is in order:
    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
    But make allowance for their doubting too;
    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
    Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
    Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
    And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

    f you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
    ‘ Or walk with Kings – nor lose the common touch,
    if neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
    If all men count [on you,] with you, but none too much;
    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
    And – which is more – you’ll be a Man, my son!

    President Trump sounded like a CEO in this interview instead of a typical lip service politician.

    I said many times prior to November 2016 that what America really needed was a smart and savvy experienced business CEO sitting in the Oval Office instead of the usual spit-polished, silver-tongue career politician who couldn’t run a Nevada house of ill repute that sold whiskey and make money.

    I agree: Six more years of President Trump seems like we’re all being shortchanged.

    Do we want troops there to create a logistics supply chain to suggle weapons and/or drugs?

    Do we want to put in a gas pipeline ans siphon off Syrias gas?

    Do we want to open a forward base in order to attack Russia?
