The true cost of being the World's Policeman is borne by the very finest among us.  If our achievement of energy independence has any true value,  it will be in freeing us from having to referee these ancient and endless Mideast tribal emnities.

Very moving. Entirely sincere.

The Kurds and Turks are said to  have been enemies for 400 years.

It's a very powerful and sincere picture of the cost of war, and a persuasive explanation for our retreat from Syria.  The military hawks I used to look to for guidance on foreign affairs...McConnell, Graham, Haley, Cruz, Rubio, Huckabee, Sasse, and Romney all say it's a mistake...but they don't have to sign the letters to the dead soldier's family.  I'll wait and see where it leads, and hope he is right, before judging President Trump.  It wasn't an eloquent speech by Trump, but it was more focused on message than usual, and I feel I better understand the President and I feel better about his motivations.  If he's got more stuff that unites the American people in empathy he should try more of it as a substitute for the broken-record "my enemies ain't fair" message.  Thanx for posting @Right_in_Virginia

@Right_in_Virginia ,  I hope you take this the right way, but I've always thought of you as the closest to me politically of anyone on this board.   Unlike you, I have struggled mightily with Trump, and I understand your frustration with a lot of my posts.   Hearing Trump's humanity in clips like this gives me hope that he can connect with so many of us who have doubts about his leadership.   I'll grant him this -  he is a patriot and that rare sort of politician for whom it means something to keep a promise made to those who voted for him, and for those who end up the fodder of politicians' wars.
