Trump’s decision to make way for Turkey in Syria seen by critics as a Kurds betrayal
Whose interest should PDT have in the forefront, the USA or the Kurds. Many of these decisions TO GET INVOLVED were the made by predecessors and wound-up in the lap of the current president.
If the USA stays in Syria we are screwed and if we pull out we are considered by some to be dishonorable. It is a very tough call for PDT, the man that Believes CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME.
It is called, being between a rock and a hard place, damned if you do, damned if you don’t!!
I would like to see the Boulder Rollers that love to play Monday Morning Quarterback come up with a reasonable solution that has the best interest of the USA, before the fact, not after.
Is it a shame we may have to dessert the Kurds in their time of need?? Absolutely, BUTT how much can anyone expect out of the USA, that has spread itself so thin around the world defending everyone, with very little if anything in return. ??
Many of the countries we have defended through the years can buy and sell the USA, BUTT because of BAU, political ties and back-room whore deals, we are the ones that are always left holding the bag. When we do decide to get our hats, we are criticized by everyone on the planet.
I will always stand on two beliefs; don’t go where you don’t belong and charity begins at home. If we do not put ourselves out there in the first place, we do not have to look bad making a retreat.
The wars between the different factions have been going on for centuries and do not show any sign of cooling off ever. Sooooo, why should the USA get involved in lost causes. We have enough on the plate, here in the USA that has been neglected for years that is in dire need of attention.
These pictures are not of 3rd world countries, they are right here in the USA. SOOOO, tell me, should the government be putting their effort$ into this country or continuing to throw good money after bad??
These conditions do not show the infrastructural we can not see, like water line – sewer lines – gas line – the under sides of bridges – plus plus plus that needed immediate attention 30 years ago. Much of the USA’s infrastructure is hanging on by a shoelace and Duck Tape, while we are STLLL giving away trillion$
Now tell me; DO WE STAY OR DO WE GO???
