Also, something I never thought I'd say: Thank God for Lindsey Graham today. From all accounts I've seen so far, he's standing up to Trump on this issue and can rally veto-proof sanctions against Turkey if they take action against the Kurds.
Graham is a complicit boob. I doubt the do nothing Republican led Senate will do anything more than bluster. Turkey will move against the Kurds...full stop. All is good because we will now have a Trump Tower Istanbul.
Its TOWERS. Theres two of 'em. And they've been there nearly ten years
, just so you know.....
And Trump doesn't own them, he's licensed his name to them. They are literally only
Trump Towers by name.
Given this, I find it impossible to believe a 10 year old building with Trumps name on it caused the withdrawal of US troops, sorry ..... but hey, you guys believe what you will.
That assumes Turkey and Trump are friends. But they aren't.
Did you not see Turkey choosing Russian S 400 Air Defence Systems over US Patriot Systems in 2017?
Also rich to see the US up in arms ( pardon the pun ) because Trump wants to deescalate the illegal “Needless and unwinable wars” you've all been paying for with your tax money.
As said above, thank God for Lindsey Graham's standing up to Trump wanting peace.
Americans are so ingrained to all things War, things seem out of kilter when troop withdrawals are mentioned.
Thats how weird shite is over there in the land of the Free.
Remember Trump ran on pulling troops out?
Or is the US even withdrawing ??
Thats an awful lot of oil in those Syrian oilfields they'd be giving up....difficult to believe, isn't it?
As for threatening Turkeys economy?
With each and every Empire threat, so a little crack appears in US dollar hegemony.
Things are evolving.
War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
