      PT is gonna win BIGLY! On this issue of troop withdrawal. It’s hard to believe how stupid the left and RINO’s are in falling into this trap. From PT’s perspective…THIS is how he’s actually playing this whole issue. And he knows the base is with him on it, but he also knows that independents will come on board with this too. Even many stubborn Democrats! Brilliant play!

        I know a few democrats, and they are *all* anti-war. A few actually signaled their (weak) approval some months back, when the President did *not* react to Iran’s provocations. Of course, they remain convinced he is Hitler reincarnated. Because media.

        Not sure if they will ever overcome their rabid Trumpophobia, to give our President the props he deserves here. I’m sure the MSM will give credit where credit is due: to Nancy Pelosi! /s.

        I find it SO strange that more citizens haven’t figured out the UNiparty construct, with both RepubliCONS and Democrats AND their Enemedia ALL itching for war.

        They worry that the planet can’t handle cow farts ( ! ) but they cannot fathom a very *real* New World Order plot to rule the world?

      Just look at the deflated Sultan without clothes. Team Trump exposed him mightily!

      The big elephant in the room is that Turkey wont move into the zone beyond what they got(not much). Syrians and Russians will get there and most of the Kurds will probably align with the Syrian army. I didn’t see much heavy US equipment either beyond very well equipped rifles and some anti tanks. Erdogan is pi**ed!

      All of the R’s crying and signing nonsense look stupid now. And so does the media who was acting like a massacre was already going on.

      Truth is that the Turkish proxies were beaten by the Kurds and Syrians and were not advancing. Meanwhile Russia was moving into the lines behind the advancing Syrians which means Turkey wasn’t able to backup their Islamist proxies with airstrikes.

        Talk about a circular firing squad.
        Russia’s friend Turkey, a NATO ally of the United States, invades Russia’s ally, Syria.
        So which side does Russia take? Both? Neither? Or maybe split the baby ala Solomon? Half the Russians there fight for Syria, the other side fight for Turkey? And what about Iran? Iran has a dog in the fight, too. If Turkey recreates the Ottoman Empire, where does that leave Iran which wants to be hegemon in the Middle East?

        And what about the USA. Was the US supposed to help Syria repel NATO ally Turkey’s invasion of that sovereign country? Would that mean the USA now is aligned with Assad, the president against whom it sided in Syria’s civil war?

        Everyone’s worried about the ISIS captives getting loose while Turkey and Syria go at it. I have an idea. Bomb the prison and blame it on the Turks.

        • The Traitor’s plan (ala McShame, Zero, Cankles etc.) Was to prop up ISIS as a threat to the ME. This gave the US the green light to occupy and pretend to remove ISIS.

          Next step of the Traitor’s plan was to get Assad to kill/gas his own citizens (aka rebels). Probably the only thing Zero did right was not “cross the line in the sand” when Aleppo and other towns were gassed. (With gas that Assad never had.)

          Fast forward to the present. PDJT knew all of this and wanted none of it. In PDJT’s eyes best option was/is complete withdrawal followed by economic sanctions as appropriate.

          SD, posted a great article on PDJT’s decision to withdraw a few days ago.

      U.S.A does not care who owns the sand only that genocide does not happen over the sand.

      If Russia and Syria wish to dispute the claim Turkey has over the sand let them fight for it. Now the U.S allies everyone was worried about are moved out of the battle zone. So Syria and Turkey can now argue over it all they want with out the U.S backed forces being stuck in the middle.

      Allow me to explain the Trump Strategy. Turkey is now on record for two things. A: Turkish naked aggression against Syria/Kurds and B: This ceasefire. The aggression now serves to put the EU/NATO on edge(As well as Syria/Russia/Kurds) and it’s now incumbent on the Turks to uphold their agreement.

      Essentially Turkey is boxed in and no longer a threat to the Kurds. And the new Syrian/Kurds state will emerge.

      To sum it up, Donald J. Trump is a very stable genius who understands and ruthlessly applies the concept of leverage. Something the House Speaker is unaware of.

    I just called McCarthy and Scalise’s offices to tell them of my disgust with the Republicans. They jumped the gun and now the President has fixed the situation and brought the troops home. I told both offices that they will have a really hard time ever being the majority again if they don’t start backing the President. I reminded them that the President’s supporters may not be willing to vote for them if they don’t have the President’s back.

    I donated to Nunes in the past and am really disappointed in him. Nunes gets a lot of donations from Trump supporters who live outside of his district.

    Sounds much like the outcome PDJT thought he was getting (and ‘re-enforcing’ with his strongly worded letter) before Erdogan went rogue. Kurdish General Masloum and PDJT had already discussed what would be acceptable to Kurdish SDF forces, most of whose related YPG faction population centers are south of the ~20 mile buffer zone Erdogan had said he sought. It stops PKK transits and gives Turkey a north Syrian zone in which to resettle its Syrian refugees. Kurdish who live in the buffer zone can stay, but not as SDF forces.

    Erdogan wanted a USA confrontation so that the USA would pile up troops and then Erdogan would “let” the USA bribe away his excursion into Syria ala the pallets of money to IRAN. When the USA (President Trump) refused the gambit, Erdogan’s excursion then became a case of a NATO ally attacking a neighbor who has backing of Russia so by extension Russia vs NATO. (Remember Erdogans visit with Putin?) And USA has no part in the proceedings except reminding Erdogan that his economy is in the tank and getting worse. Now, Erdogan’s army has had all of its best leadership hacked away in a “loyalty” purge while the Kurds are a lean mean fighting machine from getting lots of hands on experience and US training. When Syrian Army moved toward the border, it became Erdogan vs everyone with no one in his corner. Not even Iran. NATO Allies showed they were not about to back him and USA shows up to say, “Your economy is in pretty poor shape. Pity about that. But, it is going to get worse, unless …”

    And not one USA soldier got so much as a boo-boo. I said at the time that leaving the troops in the path of an army was a huge mistake. Moving them out of the way only made sense. Once there was no trip wire, everything blew up in Erdogan’s face. Now it is up to him to do as he said. Anything he does or doesn’t do is on him, not on President Trump or the USA. And his economy can still be wiped out if he doesn’t do as he said.

    I say to all those Pearl clutchers: Oh yea of little faith. Reap what yea sow. And enjoy the taste of bitter herbs.
