Trump to Fulfill Promise to Bring Troops Home. Twoparties Panic

President Trump vigorously defended on Monday his decision to withdraw United States troops from northern Syria ahead of a planned invasion of the region by Turkey, even as his Republican allies in both the Senate and House vehemently criticized the move.

In his first public comments since news broke early Monday of the troop withdrawal, Trump said he understood the concerns raised by his fellow Republicans, but added that it was time to fulfill his campaign promise to bring the troops home.

“We want to bring our troops back home and I got elected on that,” Trump said during a news conference Monday. “I fully understand both sides but I promised to bring our troops home.”

He added, “We're not a police force.”

The Kurds are no better than any other group in the middle east and we certainly do not owe them one more drop of American blood nor one more penny of American treasure.

  

Snarky no more!

You know some Kurds do you? Do they live in Iraq, Iran, Syria or Turkey?

Are you saying Turkey is already engaged in genocide, and no one in the world cares?

Edit: Probably if they didn't live on top of so much oil, nobody would bother them at all...

What a dick question.

Read what he says Draft Dodger Gramps.  Trump is bringing the troops home and we are not the police of the world.

I wonder why the price of gas keeps on going up ever after we have taken all the oil.  You are a democrat and a progressive.

It turns out Trump isn't planning to actually remove any troops from Syria:

https://reason.com/2019/10/07/wtf-lindsey-graham-says-trump-is-repeating-mistake...

From the article:

"The New York Times reports that the U.S. will be pulling back about 150 military personnel from northern Syria, but not out of the country entirely. (The State Department has claimed the number being withdrawn is substantially lower—fewer than 26.)"

Iran hijacking oil tankers? Increasing demand from China, and India, and Indonesia? Inflation? Instability and increasing threats of war in the Middle East? I'm sure there are more...
