  • Disciple of Christ says:

    So sick of the hypocrisy. If Obama did this, Democrats would hail him and probably nominate him for a Noble Peace Prize, but since Trump is doing it, they oppose it. Likewise, if Obama did this, Republicans would say he is going soft on terrorism, but since Trump is doing it they are all for it. Can't we just agree that America shouldn't be Israel's bodyguard, pediod?

  • Rusty McShackelford says:

    The main character in the fictional musical removes the vaginas from the supportive female relatives or law enforcement with the claw end of a Carpenters hammer by simply shoving the claw in and pulling the hammer back to make it pop like Fresca in my opinion

  • Trump Abruptly Withdraws U.S. Troops From Northern Syria
    "Use them in LA to drive Obama's people of Po0p onto reservations in the desert. Saving the people of LA"

  • The Kurds deserve so much more than what this fake president .Has done he signed their death certificates. Trump has brought a war to our front door .

  • trump had to do something mind blowing and world changing to turn our attention from what he has done with the Ukrainians. The little slim ball will throw the whole worlds behind under the bus because his won't fit. It's over folks.

  • Sherri Greeydelinarez says:

    Trump tried to pull our Military out of Syria shortly after Hellsinki!! Pull out now is a gift to Putin he had deal with Syrian Leader for Pipe line!!! Putin take the Place of U.S , Watch & see! Blood on Trump's hands kurd allies left to die!!!

  • William Helfrich says:

    Trump and the Zionist Evangelicals are the best government Russia ever had, Graham is all spin for his Zionist base

  • Don Emigholz Jr. says:

    See, Trump is a Russian agent. Trump is doing the bidding of Russia and his best friend Putin. This also punishes the Oil conglomerates for not coming to his aid in his impeachment. Although it may also force the Conglomerates to come to his aid.

  • Trump pulls troops out of Syria, a victory for Russia and in return, Putin helps trump making this impeachment mess go away somehow (new evidence).
    Trump = Sellout to our country!!
    Russia = Please take dump trump with you to help Make Russia Great again!

  • Trump delivers on yet another promise. He's mentioned pulling our troops out 1000 times. Why is this a shock? War is bad business for the U.S. Its too expensive….and our tax dollars pay for it.

  • Ashley Grayson says:

    It's time to come home battles. I'm tired of seeing you guys uphold a Country that isn't your own and that refuses to help themselves. We've given enough. It's time to come home.

  • kurds. wrong words ! not kurds ! pkk=ypg. terorist organization nothing to do with kurds. turkey helping kurds millions of refugees from syria 3.5 million accounted and over millions not ! half off them kurds. why syrian kurdish people running from pkk= ypg ? to turkey ?? why ?? they are still coming in turkey every single day! why ? if turkish people hate kurds why kurds coming to turkey?? and other thing 7 to 12 million kurds living in turkey and they are turkish citizens !

  • Shirley Ann Sellars says:

    He's trying to change the narrative. Do not want the American people talking about his situation impeach him.

  • Durango McMurphy says:

    The idea of a standing army was abhorrent to the Founders . After the Revolution of 1776 , everyone just wanted to go home .
    Various power struggles have been going on in the Middle East for thousands of years . Peace will never come through perpetual war . The Democrats and Oil friendly Republicans are war mongers . Trump is in real estate , he want's to BUILD not destroy .

  • So, Take me back to Constantinople
    No, you can't go back to Constantinople
    Been a long time gone, Oh Constantinople
    Why did Constantinople get the works?
    That's nobody's business but the Turks….

  • To leave without providing security for those that are under your protection is morally repugnant. Donald Trump I supported you as president because I didn’t Like the idea of a woman in office because I follow the tradition of God and not man. Trump you error in not respecting people and cultures, that are in different to yours. But in my defense I knew that you and Hillary are both crooked.

  • Remember in the 80s when we let Afghanistan do whatever after the Russian invasion yeah they formed Taliban guess we’re gonna do the same with the Kurds what a smart country America is it deserves when It gets bombed

  • Be warned: anti-Trump medias like NBC, will be showing the Turk offensive in as bad light as possible, just to make Trump look bad. They will use edited and tampered battlefied footage to make it look like Trump caused genuine genocide! These spineless propaganda artists will stop at noting, you see, to topple Trump…

  • But it's written in the starlight
    And every line in your palm
    We are fools to make war
    On our brothers in arms
    – Dire Straits – Brothers in Arms

  • Funny how Trump always say or do something " crazy" when he is taking heat from a scandal, in order to deflect the attention.

  • Treasonous Kurds finally reaping what they've sown. Betraying the Syrian people and Government by trying to breakaway from the country. Hope the Turks uproot them. Long Live the Syrian Arab Republic!

  • I don't really care. At this point, I want to see the Bible and Quran outlawed and all these 'Christians', if that is what they all call themselves, being held accountable. I would like to 'shut down', the 'Jerusalem' Loophole', which people seem to believe is a place of grace, for those who believe……… Martyr them, subject them to the Holocaust, etc.. but I am tired of these Politicians, especially these democracies and even the Protestant Monarchies, trying to play, both sides of the fence….

    I don't believe Christ ever existed, I think that is all fiction… So all these Wars, in the name of 'God' or 'Freedom' don't appeal to me…… I did not support the emancipation and I don't particularly believe in supporting the lower classes of society, or lessor races…. ethnic groups, let's call them……. I believe in ethnic cleansing, not Democracy! There is a huge difference…… I don't care for American Politics or their Gov, they are all drug users and corrupt…. Toss them in with the 'lower classes'…. Who it seems, are the people who vote them into office…..>?

  • Should’ve left Sadam Hussein in power. There’s one thing he hated more than the West; Radical Islam. As much as he was a horrible person, radical Islam was at a lesser degree during his reign.

  • This is a mistake for President Trump?
    50 soldiers now, or risk thousands to fight Turkey? Was Trump concerned the 50 being in harms way because of Turkey entering war zone and he's protecting them by pulling them out? 💕🇺🇸🎈🎈
