    Slaughtering our Kurdish allies

    WASHINGTON — The White House said Sunday that Turkey will soon invade Northern Syria, renewing fears of a slaughter of Kurdish fighters allied with the U.S. in a yearslong campaign against the Islamic State group.

    The news was released by the White House at 11 p.m. on a Sunday night.

    This is difficult.

    Trump campaigned on getting out such entanglements. But ISTM we have never really lived up to commitments we made to the Kurds decades ago.

    I don't like this either....

    By all appearances, this is a rehash of the decision that spurred Mattis resignation, made late at night after a similar phone call with Erdogan, but this time without any feedback other than that necessary with his press secretary.

    Trumps fellow tyrant, Erdogan made it clear that if and when the U.S. pulled out that he would go in an attack our allies, the Kurds, who basically did the work in defeating Isis for us, costing the lives of 10,000 Kurd soldiers with tens of thousands more wounded. Trump, what a piece of crap! He's also showing our allies all over the world, like the old Soviet states, that the U.S. can't be trusted or depended upon. Putin must be ecstatic with his man in the White House!

    Trump turns his back on the Kurds.

    Trump shames the US again:

    The US says it is stepping aside for an imminent Turkish operation against Kurdish-led forces within Syria that have until now been a key US ally.
    Kurdish militias played a major role in defeating the Islamic State (IS) group, but Turkey regards them as terrorists.
