Pretty controversial situation. The deed is done now and it looks like Turkey’s going be the occupying force for a while.  Turkey can do things the US would never get away with…Looks like the Kurds are screwed.

You mean the “the great and unmatched wisdom” of the “chosen one” is wrong?

How can that be?

Just quoting the president. Glad you have such low regard for the one you put the security of the United States in the hands of. He is doing a great job as you can see.

Do you think we should have remained in Syria?

I think the Kurds are our allies and we just abandoned them in a unilateral move to appease an authoritarian in Turkey who is not really our ally.

It was done by an intellectual infant without consultation with the Pentagon. You should be scared that this guy is in charge and has a cult backing. Our country is in grave danger every day he is in office.

I tend to agree with this part.
