@Stevensr123 I really appreciate reading your perspective from across the pond ;). Thank you for bringing this up. While President Obama made a huge mistake discounting ISIS in the first place, they were on the run before President Trump was even elected.
I personally think we should have just left the Russians and Assad to deal with it themselves in the first place.
We (the british and americans) have already chosen wrongly when it comes to dictators and made things worse (Lybia, Iraq, syria). Dictators more often than not shoot down these terrorists and keep a lid on them.
Before the overthrowing, the likes of syria, lybia etc where relatively peaceful. Obama stuck his nose into things and made things worse! But at the same time, they were well on their way to being defeated before trump came in, mainly because of Russia and assad and the kurds. So to give trump the sole credit is a bit comical.
anyway a bit off topic lol
This current situation seems totally bizarre though, A lot of people over this side are thinking its to do with his russian comments, And I think thats probably likely given sarah's comments the day before he made them (not really taking the side of the British) and tillerson seemed to have contradicted her the day after (agreeing it was russia). By guess it was the last straw.
