Donald Trump Throws The Kurds Under The Bus

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.



This isn’t an American withdrawal from Syria.

Donald Trump is going to stand aside while Erdogan wipes out the Kurds and creates a safe zone in northern Syria. The alternative is that he kicks out the Syrian refugees in Turkey and sends them to Europe. It seems that Trump is tired of dealing with the problem.

New York Times:

“WASHINGTON — In a major shift in United States military policy in Syria, the White House said on Sunday that President Trump had given his endorsement for a Turkish military operation that would sweep away American-backed Kurdish forces near the border in Syria.

Turkey considers the Kurdish forces to be a terrorist insurgency, and has long sought to end American support for the group. But the Kurdish fighters, which are part of the Syrian Democratic Forces, or S.D.F., have been the United States’ most reliable partner in fighting the Islamic State in a strategic corner of northern Syria.

Now, Mr. Trump’s decision goes against the recommendations of top officials in the Pentagon and the State Department who have sought to keep a small troop presence in northeast Syria to continue operations against the Islamic State, or ISIS, and to act as a critical counterweight to Iran and Russia. …

Mr. Erdogan has demanded a “safe zone” for his nation to run 20 miles deep and 300 miles along the Turkish-Syrian border east of the Euphrates. That area, he has said, would be reserved for the return of at least a million Syrian refugees now inside Turkey. Mr. Erdogan has threatened to send a wave of Syrian migrants to Europe instead if the international community does not support the initiative to send them back to Syria. “

Who cares?

Why must we indefinitely babysit the Kurds in Syria?

Trump ordered the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria last December. “Mad Dog” Jim Mattis resigned in protest. Senate Republicans and the Deep State went to work on him, slowly got him to back down and he ultimately caved on the issue.

He is defending the move on Twitter:

I agree.

If Trump was able to withdraw the troops from Syria and Afghanistan, declare victory over ISIS and say that he had put an end to several of these endless wars without starting a new one as president, it would be a feather in his cap and would help his reelection effort.

Neocons are going to war with Blompf over this and screaming bloody murder about “muh Kurdish allies” as we all expected:

If nothing else, Trump has succeeded in shifting some of the blame for these quagmires back to Conservatism, Inc. and the GOP Congress. He is signaling here who is the real problem.
