Hillary Clinton and the gang who couldn’t shoot straight have zero credibility when it comes to foreign wars.
Look, the establishment failed us and they cannot defend their record so what do they do – say Trump is doing this for Putin.
Why does everything come back to Putin with the left and Trump’s other critics? It’s because they know their own record is flat out indefensible so they traffic in conspiracy theories.
Remember, Congress just said they will pass some measure that will hit Turkey if they actually go in and start fighting the Kurds so let’s wait and see before we call Trump a traitor in bed with Putin again.
That didn’t work out too well for Hillary the last time.
Also, 20% of Turkey’s population is Kurdish and Erdogan hasn’t killed them all so it is a bit much to say he will roll in and slaughter the Kurds.
In fact, the US and NATO consider one Kurdish faction (PKK) to be a terrorist organization.
Trump said when announcing this move:
“The United States was supposed to be in Syria for 30 days, that was many years ago. We stayed and got deeper and deeper into battle with no aim in sight. When I arrived in Washington, ISIS was running rampant in the area. We quickly defeated 100% of the ISIS Caliphate,…..
….including capturing thousands of ISIS fighters, mostly from Europe. But Europe did not want them back, they said you keep them USA! I said “NO, we did you a great favor and now you want us to hold them in U.S. prisons at tremendous cost. They are yours for trials.” They…..
…..again said “NO,” thinking, as usual, that the U.S. is always the “sucker,” on NATO, on Trade, on everything. The Kurds fought with us, but were paid massive amounts of money and equipment to do so. They have been fighting Turkey for decades. I held off this fight for….
….almost 3 years, but it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home. WE WILL FIGHT WHERE IT IS TO OUR BENEFIT, AND ONLY FIGHT TO WIN. Turkey, Europe, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Russia and the Kurds will now have to…..
…figure the situation out, and what they want to do with the captured ISIS fighters in their “neighborhood.” They all hate ISIS, have been enemies for years. We are 7000 miles away and will crush ISIS again if they come anywhere near us!”
Let us be clear: The president has sided with authoritarian leaders of Turkey and Russia over our loyal allies and America’s own interests. His decision is a sickening betrayal both of the Kurds and his oath of office.— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 7, 2019
