Five things to know about Trump's decision on Syria, Turkey and the Kurds

 

........Trump spoke to Erdoğan on Sunday before making his decision.

OFFICIAL WHO HEARD CALL SAYS TRUMP GOT 'ROLLED' BY TURKEY AND 'HAS NO SPINE'

"President Trump was definitely out-negotiated and only endorsed the troop withdraw to make it look like we are getting something—but we are not getting something," the National Security Council source told Newsweek. "The U.S. national security has entered a state of increased danger for decades to come because the president has no spine and that's the bottom line."......

 

Trump's sudden withdraw order could undercut strategic U.S. alliances with regional allies; free Russia and Iran to re-establish a full military presence and solid footing in the Mediterranean; and leave U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters vulnerable to being decimated by a Turkish air campaign.

A complete withdrawal could also potentially give up a valuable regional position to American military forces that threaten United States interests in the region, including the interests of allies such as Israel and, to some extent, Jordan.

The National Security Council official compared Turkey to "playground bullies" on Monday.

"When the bigger guy [United States] moves aside in the playground, they [Turkey] get to beat on the smaller guy [Syrian Defense Forces] and this is not about the U.S. being the world police," the National Security Council source told Newsweek.

"We are telling the world, we will use you and then throw you away," the official added. "It's not like they don't have a television in Asia, in Africa, and South America."

If your transparent President had nothing fear, he wouldn’t be hiding evidence and ordering witnesses not to testify. Sounds like the Orange Fool is running scared!

Never tried Tuttarosa, but looks good.

It's the REPUBLICANS who are criticizing Trump and his pathetic attempts at military and foreign affairs.  His strongest REPUBLICAN supporters and boot lickers are leaders of the opposition to Trump's move.

If Trump really had nothing to hide in his taxes, his business dealings, his phone calls and conversations and so forth he would throw it all out there.  He would let everybody testify, even before being supponead.  But he is either guilty of afraid he is guilty and too dumb to know it.

He knows he done wrong - over and over and over and over............

Trump said he was going to get out of Syria earlier in the year, then never did anything.

I will wait until the pullout actually happens. Trump is such a serial liar why believe anything

he says until it actually happens.

The Syria thing is Trump's way of deflecting news coverage of all his other misdeeds.

Very likely, but I won't believe it until he actually does it. It may be a deflection in the short

term, but I doubt it will do much to keep the possibility of impeachment out of the news.

In one way this does remind me of Watergate. What started as a minor incident expanded 

into the whole Watergate affair and what started as one part of a phone call is expanding

into what appears to be a much larger plan to manipulate Ukraine, the phone call being just

one part of that plan. It will be interesting to see how far afield this goes. But conviction in

the Senate is still a long shot.
