  1. We’ve never been weaker and it gets worse every day.

    • This is what T-Rump did to contractors , never paid for work done or goods delivered , why would he be different as president ?
      This shows how you never should trust USA , that it keeps what it promises , not that is something anything new , mass murderer Andrew Jackson is good example .
      We have Turkey too , Iraq war 1 , Bush sr promised them goods and never delivered , then Iraq war 2 and Bush jr needed Turkeys help , they said lets put that on paper .
      Its like every place USA is or has been there is always back stabbing by USA and broken promises .

    A feckless POTUS abandoning those who give their lives in a war against ISIS. That’s what the USA gets for having a C.S. President unable to think beyond the end of his nose. ANY USA citizen who is So Much of a C.S. coward that he Disrespects the lives already given by U.S. Solders and the Kurds to fight ISIS Does Not Deserve basic respect from anyone in life that still has a moral compass intact. Impeach the traitorous SOB — someone so treasonous he cares nothing for commitments made and alienates all potential future allies to the USA.

    • Amen!

      No one will ever trust the US again! Why should they?! This is horrible. Trump doesn’t care. He thinks he’s King! WTH?! When will the GOP get a grip and understand Trump doesn’t give a sh*t what they think?! He cares what Erdogan, Putin, Xi Xi Ping, Kim cares about! Trump doesn’t care about National security or America, he cares about himself, money and power!

  3. Trump is on a vendetta from here on out!….He will destroy Americas credibility because he can’t handle the fact he has failed in the publics eye. He will leave our once great America in shambles!

  4. This is exactly how Trump does business, which is why he has ran so many in the ground.

  5. Bone spurs running from combat? You don’t say……

    There is no way Trump is doing this on his own.Putin is directing him. Trump does not know where Norther Syria is on a map.

    So many people are going to die because of trump and his need to deflect impeachment investigation find the fact of the matter he just made the situation even worse

  8. Trump must have gotten something sweet in exchange for tens of thousands of Kurdish lives and the last fragments of American credibility abroad. Whatever it is, it’s for Trump and Trump only.

    US is now unreliable. It’s like telling France in WWII that ‘forget it” and just accept Nazi domination.

      That’s what he’s telling US. He would let Russia walk right in and take over, all while holding the door for Putin! He’s practically saying we should just accept it!

    So the American soldiers that have died in Syria, was for nothing??? The Kurdish blood will be on Trump’s hands

  11. Isn’t it odd that trump just keeps doing Russia favors?

    Good thing this won’t help Russia, Iran or Syria.

  12. I guess we can now count these GOP guys for membership in the impeachment club. (Not holding my breath.)

  13. This is quite simple: look into any biz deals he made with the Turkish government. Duh…

  14. Dopey’s word means nothing.
    Ask his 3 wives or the NY bankers or even our allies.

    Everyone: I don’t know how he can ever make this worse for himself.
    Trump: Hold my beer.

  16. What a beautiful gift for Putin on his birthday.

  17. “High crimes and misdemeanors” is a catch all that includes engaging in reckless conduct. If he’s unfit to fulfill his duties as commander in chief, then it’s an impeachable offense.

    The Kurds are now fully justified in saying “we’d rather have a Turkish army in front of us, than an American one behind us”.

  19. The only “war” Donald Tantrump has ever seen, comes from the “Call of Duty” ads online.

  20. The Angry Apricot is just pulling the pin before leaving the room. The clean up is someone elses problem.
