  1. “Benghazi 2.0” Who could have seen this coming? Trump hotel managers in Turkey and pappy Putin.

  2. Orange Fatty got a deal,
    with the Turkish “big wheel”,
    that betrayed the Kurds,
    and fed our cred to the birds,
    then dashed off for a “Happy Meal”.

    ReAlly donald? Gonna betray the Peshmerga? We won’t have any allies left, republicans better get control of your boi, he’s acting a fool. He’s doing damage to allied relations that could take years to fix.

    • @Tomandtob hmmm tRump… I usually keep the t lower case too… the R though….emphasis on the rump…. I might use this.

    • Trump has his hotel in Turkey not in Kurdistan so you know whom he will support.

    • @jhg /finger on nose…/whisper follow the money

      I would think twice before betraying the Kurds, Trump. You might just wake up dead from a few stab wounds one of these days…or perhaps later, when you’re out of the White House…the Kurds have a long memory and they know how to wait.

    I mean, everyone always said the US would stab the Kurds in the back. Trump signalling it for a second is a great way of destroying what is left of US reputation. We always knew no one could rely on the US, this just gives everyone a reason to refuse their next coalition call.


    • @J Russ WEALTHY

      – right, because what one unstable president does HAS TO BE HONORED FOREVER!! You made a VERY ignorant comment. The US reputation, minus tRump is better than the reputation of 99% of the countries. The US is ALWAYS the first place any country turns to when it is in trouble and, minus tRump, we have always responded. The United States has lost more of its young men and women in OTHER COUNTRIES WARS than any other nation.

    • @J Russ – he is still president because impeachment is a slow process.

    Trump’s word (therefore Americas) is worthless…. you’re like Rats….leaving the sinking ship…..again!!!
    Good luck……finding Allies in the future!

    • Brian Richner ok, great; you know what happened 75 years ago. Meanwhile, Trump has managed in the 3 years he has been bulldozing American goodwill in the eyes of the rest of the world to destroy the international mindset that the US can be counted on when the s*** hits the fan. NATO became a thing because of the efforts of MANY countries; all but one of them being NOT AMERICAN. Once again, in the past 3 years Pinocchio (I mean Trump); working for his puppet master Gepetto (I mean Putin) has done everything in his power to destroy belief in NATO and convince the other members of said org that the US will no longer be a responsible member!

      @Tomandtob The truth hurts!!!!

      I have absolutely no defense for your point. Our reputation has indeed been blighted around the world, after the wrecking ball that is tRump. He had us bail on the Paris Accord, he destroyed the incredible nuclear deal we had with Iran and insulted our allies left and right, while propping up dictators with rewards and praises. And now this! I’m just afraid it will take the bodies of hundreds, perhaps thousands of dead Kurds, before the Republican Party will finally grow a spine and deal with him.

    The next humanitarian crisis is being created by the trump administration

    • @ruth depew – you forgot that all of that benefits Putin.

    • @Dave Ponsford – apparently, he can green light it, he shouldn’t green light it but since when has tRump done ANYTHING honorable??

    • @Tomandtob I was just addressing the humanitarian crisis elements not the political elements. Politically this benefits at least Russia, Turkey, Iran, and Syria.

    • Humanitarian crisis was already there tnx to western powers using terrorists to fight terrorists

  7. He is already guilty of human right violations at the southern border.
    Why not add war criminal…. he’s trying to get in the MOST exclusive prisons.

    “It’s a free shot for GOP Senators to criticize Trump for undermining years of joint work in Syria and do nothing to stop it.

    Since when can the president make a move without Congress?

  14. McConnell is hiding inside his shell, hoping it will all blow over by the time he returns.

    Erdogan must have agreed to “investigate” the Bidens.

    Who will trust the US w their lives and freedom after this?

    • @Koria Borein The instability and terrorism within the middle east has worsen because of the U.S. Do your research, ISIS and other terrorist groups stemmed from the actions of U.S. involvement in the middle east.

      The Kurds fought along the U.S. to destroy ISIS. They even found Sadam for the U.S. I am in the military and I would go overseas and proudly fight along side with them. I rather bring the fight to the enemy then to have it on our soil.

      The incursions on U.S. soil has been minimal, thus preserving more life and infrastructure then a country that is an active war zone. Look at what happened to the European countries during WW 1&2, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan.

    • @YouTube User Please. The Middle East will never be peaceful, because the people there are not peaceful. It’s been the same, even before the United States was a thing.

    • None should expect for us citizens. These turds are not our kids they are not our problem

    • @Everblue Freediving those guys the Kurds are literally suicidally fighting turkey. They can and should put down their weapons and submit to the authority it’s easy. And these middle Eastern fighters will never change. They can’t get normal jobs or contribute to society. They are fighters. So they are going to fight until they are no more

    • America is having its own battle against Trump, one of the most corrupt person in power in the entire world.


  18. There’s a toddler in The White House!!!

  19. The chaos beginns as the us put his feeds on syrian terretory.

  20. “Whoever has the Americans as allies does not need enemies.”
