Whatever Pete. I guess your view on screwing over allies depends on who is in office.

@txradioguy

Guessing seems to be all you are capable of doing. MOST people understand that being allies is a two-way street. The ONLY way America benefits from this is by keeping cash rolling into the defense industry and the union jobs they provide in mostly Dim states.
It takes an special kind of "Stoopid" to make Trump look like a defenseless victim and gain public sympathy,but damned if the Dims didn't pull it off!

One of us seems to be.

We can't even protect our OWN damn borders,and here we are sending troops all over the world to help others protect themselves??????

Not our zoos,not our monkeys.

You sound exaclty like the 60's anti war protestors who despsied you and your sacrifice in Vietnam.

Hey Tom...Mussolini made the trains run on time too.  I guess we shouldn't ahve ousted him from Italy either huh?

We wouldn't have had they not thrown their lot in with Germany.

So it’s ok in your mind to just screw over an ally and leave them to be slaughtered by a sworn enemy?

God, I hope I am never in a fox hole with Pete.

Uhhh,we were fighting against the spread of communism them,backed by both China and the USSR.

We don't even PRETEND to be fighting against the spread of Islam today. Hell,we are importing them,putting them in public housing,giving them money and food stamps,and treating them like a protected species.

Yup. Turkish military forces have crossed the border into Syria.

And this is how you form a three mile buffer for your nation's borders.

Supporting and traiing freedom fighters against the Syrian regime...fighting ISIS as well since their "caliphate" had expanded from Iraq into Syria.

We were not fighting against the Syrian regime.  We were fighting ISIS in Syria.

Go back and this time actually read what I wrote.  I didn't say the U.S. was fighting Syria.

It's NOT our fight.  What compelling national interest do we have there?

Fighting terrorism and the terrorists as far away from our shores as we can.

We've been doing that since the Barbary Pirates...in pretty much the same area we're in now.

We wouldn't have had they not thrown their lot in with Germany.

Mussolini and Hitler both acme to power in the post WWI era...when isolationist policies and non interventionist policies were popular in Europe as well as the U.S.

The whole of Europe saw what was going on in Germany and Spain and Italy in the 30's and sat on their colletive thumbs because "it's not our fight".

And look where that got Europe and eventually the U.S.

Our own non interventionist and isolationist policies in the face of what Japan was doing in the Pacific facilitated the attack on Pearl Harbor.


And even after 9/11 here we are again with people advicating for that same kind of failed foreign policy strategy yet again. 

We clearly don't learn from our mistakes because we keep repeating them.

Exactly.  And, we've done that and it's now time to leave.

Fights not over.  ISIS and Taliban are still around.  Either we grow some balls as a country and finish this fight now...or we leave and have to go back and do it all over again 10-15 years from now starting from scratch.

It is now being reported that civilians are being targeted and the Syrians have asked for air support from the U.S. which has been denied by Trump.  **nononono*

They are and they will continue to be, in one form or another.  We need to start being smart about this.

This isn't about a centuries old conflict between the Kurds and the Turks...I don't care how many times i have to repeat that...it's the truth.

This is about right and wrong.  It's about abandoning an ally in the face of a military force that's going to slaughter them. 

The Syrian Kurds are a group of marauding communists fighting to steal a country's land and kill the occupants. They are not a nation state and they certainly own no moral high ground.   The United States of America forming an alliance, of any kind, with the Kurds is the equivalent of China forming an alliance with Antifa.

The Kurds want to occupy part of Turkey and then fight for another century to own it.   How the hell is this our "moral" fight?   And, dear God, yes … when their needs dovetailed with ours, the Kurds fought with us  --- and they were well compensated for their efforts.  But correct me if I am wrong, I do not remember this great ally fighting along side us in Kandahar.

As I pointed out earlier...we've been fighting terrorism in that part of the world since Jefferson was President.  And we probably always will as long as they insist on killing infadels and Jews and anyone who doesn't conform to their twisted backwards way of thinking.

The only way the fighting will stop is if Islam as a whole has some kind of internal reformation and modernization that brings them into the 21st Century.

Until then...it's either we fight them in hot dusty places half way around the world or we become Britan and France and some other Europenan contries and live in constant fear of being attacked walking to the market.

What happened in Germany this morning is a perfect example of what we are trying to prevent.
