Trump defends Syria move: The Kurds 'didn't help us' in Normandy
By Morgan Chalfant - 10/09/19 05:37 PM EDT



President Trump on Wednesday criticized the Kurds, saying they didn't help the United States during World War II and that they were only fighting for their land in Syria during the battle against ISIS.

“The Kurds are fighting for their land,” Trump told reporters at the White House during an event in the Roosevelt Room.


“And as somebody wrote in a very, very powerful article today, they didn’t help us in the second World War, they didn’t help us with Normandy as an example. They mentioned names of different battles. But they’re there to help us with their land and that’s a different thing.”

Trump did not specify to which article he was referring, but some on Twitter pointed to an article written in TownHall by conservative Kurt Schlichter that included a reference to the Kurds and Normandy.

The Kurds didn't help us in Kandahar, either.

Schlichter was making a tongue in cheek point about the Kurds being allies of convenience for both parties at the moment, which is true. The Hill knows this but of course cannot pass up a chance for a ridiculing headline.

Perhaps Trump should know better than to throw out a quote within providing the context. In doing so he just asks for this kind of treatment.

You and Trump keep running your mouths trying to justify this insanity and see what it gets you.  It's rapidly turning me back into a never Trumper again and I'm FAR from the only one.

Oh!  BTW @Right_in_Virginia you don't have even the most remote clue as to what you are talking about here!  Not one!

That loud sound is the crowd laughing at you, and  your defense of Trump's idiotic statements that even defy sanity.

Good grief.   

This issue has devolved into utter over-emotional, knee-jerkwad insanity.   

Kudos to the anti-Trump leftist propagandists!  One more 'cut' successfully administered and manipulated by the rabid leftist faction. 

As for all the idiots that have apparently fallen for it.....

consider yourselves at least partially responsible for the fall of America to the leftists when it comes.

Great work, morons.

You are correct...with ISIS stirred up we could very well see the fall of America....oh...that's right, Trump said they would be fleeing to Europe.  Got it!

That's a given...

But the county will be rid of him by January 2021 or 2025....

The unsettling thought is that there are millions of fellow citizens who are just as crazy or crazier supporting him and who will be with us after he is out of office.... :shrug:

Our army (during the Revolutionary War) manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports. Of course the Kurds didn’t lift a finger to help us take back JFK from the Limey’s. So F the Kurds and that nasty Megan Markel. But speaking of F’n. That Diana chick was really hot. If she were my daughter, I’d be thinking about dating her. But back to war, was over when the German’s bombed Pearl Harbor? Well it should have been. Just like Puerto Rico, those foreigners in Hawaii have never done anything for us and should have been paying for their own defense. Can’t we put a moat around it and fill it with snakes and alligators? Like I said to Justin Trudeau, “Didn’t you guys burn down the White House?”. We should build a wall around Canada to prevent that from happening again and make Nickleback pay for it.

The Syrian Kurds are an ally of mutual convenience.  They hate ISIS, we hate ISIS.  Our goal is to kill ISIS in Syria, so is theirs.  Our momentary interest dovetails.   As we help the Syrian Kurds they help us.   When the fighting against ISIS is over both sides are better off than they were before.

When our mission is accomplished we leave the Syrian Kurds with less ISIS, more money, more training and more military equipment than they had before.  How they choose to use this treasure is up to them, but chances are pretty damn good they'll choose to resume their long battle with the Turks.   Godspeed to them and may they use our contribution to their efforts wisely.

I simply do not know what else you believe we owe them @Bigun

The mission was almost over. Why should we trust Turkey? Seriously?

It is almost like there is something we don't know because the situation is so idiotic

From what I saw Nikki Haley spoke followed by Sasse and Rubio and then most of the others fell in line.

@Bigun

The Kurds have, or had, thousands of ISIS in prison.  A bomb was dropped by Turkey today on that prison so the Kurd guards were either killed or had to leave.  Consider thousands of ISIS men are out of prison now.  I just now heard there are/were 10,000 ISIS in that prison.

CNN is the only news network with a person there.  Don't remember her name but she is regularly interviewed as she is on the ground with the Kurds.  One time today she was with the Kurds as thousands of cars/trucks with Kurds, plus those on foot, were trying to get out of that particular city.  She had asked these Kurds where they were going and they had no destination except to leave the city.  They were all in black smoke caused by bombs exploding.

She is in massive danger staying there to report what is happening.  A bomb doesn't know the difference between her and a Kurd.  This is so horrible.

Even Larry Elder seemed to atone as to how bad this was.

OTOH, it seems our soldiers could have been in harms way and were clearly outnumbered. There could bemore here.

It's rightfully stirred up a hornet's nest.
