    Kurds can do nothing for Trump. Trump doesn’t do anything for anybody who can’t do something for him. On the other hand, he has many business interests in Turkey. And Putin is pleased with his puppet.

    • @N. gök
      Turkey maybe should stop staging fake military coup so Erdogan can jail thousands of innocent people and destroy the secularism in Turkey.
      Erdogan is Turkey’s Trump, a dictator with an ignorant and Deplorable base. The educated people of Turkey are suffering because of the ignorant masses. Hopefully, they will win one day and get rid of all the ignorant masses.

    • You’re right…if Trump can’t use you he don’t need you

    • Spot On . They have no interests or a profit personally for him so to him is to say Screw um  !

    • @MyrnaMinkoff You go and kiss Islam and you may realize just how stupid your comment really is. You go come back from the Middle East filled with leg blown off. GUTLESS WOMAN.

    Always remember: Donald Trump’s family legacy is one of cowardice and exploitation. His paternal grandfather emigrated from his native Bavaria (modern Germany) to avoid national service and taxes. His father never served in WW2, instead exploited federal funding to get rich making cheap housing for service-men. He was investigated for criminal practices, but not charged because the laws preventing what he did hadn’t been written. Trump himself avoided the draft during Vietnam claiming “bone spurs”, while he would also claim at the same time he was an athletic prodigy headhunted by professional teams.

    He is a coward from a family of cowards. Not one single member of Trump’s entire family has ever served their country in the military.

    Not. One.

  3. It’s depressing how one despotic fool can wreck so much damage to world peace

  4. The Russian Republican Party

    • @cal carter cal means dirt on serbian language he he he…why dont you obiect yo tour mommy that she called you like that dirt bag

    I want to hear what Trump and Erdogen talked about right before Trump decided on this.

    • There is a tape from 2015 where trump says he has a conflict of interest in favor of turkey because of his “massive twin trump towers” in Istanbul. He has over 190 busineses in turkey. Ecplains his gift of Kurds to turkey.

    • @Samsonian amen

    • Bergur Isleifsson, CBS owns many businesses in Turkey, over 150 of them and the Hump Towers Istanbul.

      Erdogan threatened to stop the criminal money-making machine in his country if CBS did not pull US troops out of Kurd held areas.

    • Kevin K. Brainwashed Trump supporter alert! Know what a Malignant Narcissist is? You’re enabling one! And they DO Brainwash by lying & Gaslighting YOU! Not me. I’m grounded in my own reality. Not FOX’s Alternative Trump Reality!

    It takes many years to build up trust. It takes only a few days to destroy it…

  7. Cadet Spanky McBonespurs has the blood of these people on his hands…

  8. Sending troops to Saudis while abandoning our Kurdish allies. The Saudis think of us like Trump thinks of south American immigrants. They will stab us in the back as soon as they don’t need us.

    • trump sold us to the arabs, wonder how much trump is getting for sending our troops to fight for the saudies ? 😔

    • Indeed – he has always lied about wanting to pull out troops – he simply wants to be able to relocate them to other areas; areas in which HE has personally created new tensions and instability.

    • In Trump’s world there are neither friends nor allies but useful idiots instead. The ones that don’t obey his rules he regards as enemies. There’s nothing in between and nothing else.

      In my opinion he pulled out the troops to make the Turkish invasion possible exactly the way it is happening right now because this will weaken Europe.
      Weakening Europe is what’s behind his decision.

      @db B The answer. The Saudi Royal Family purchased crontroling interest in Trump’s ventures in the early 90s to avoid personal bankruptcy. It’s all very well documented. Americans are stupid.

    He is not fit to command a toilet bowl. Is it not legal to disobey an insane order. Come on general’s call out Congress and get their backing and save this country. Some one has to draw a line in the Sand and protect this country. And it doesn’t look like Congress has any guts.

    • @John West you are right, it was a very sane order calculated to move media coverage from the latest avalanche of Trump scandals to the spectacle of bloodshed and fear now unfolding. He cares nothing about human life, friend or foe, nothing matters but himself. He is a sociopath, a profoundly stupid man and even sucks at being a criminal.

    • @Deb long conspiration theory

    • @John West Nope, go ahead and fact check it. Still trying to defend this traitorous con man. Amazing.

      @Principal Lewis U do it. Get in the race to replace him in 2020. I dare you..but you can have my vote in return. Mr. Lewis.

  10. It’s sick in the head, that ‘thing’ who disgusts me is sick in the head along with it’s supporters

  11. Trump betrayed America for a hotel. Think about that.

    • Patriots & Americans need to whipped up the Magas Isis here in home! Go Navy & Marines!

    • Imagine if Turkey had financed black militias in Alabama and provide them with weapons and pushed them to rise up against white people and declare their independence? You guys would go nuts… so why dont you understand that this is exactly what the west has been up to in the middle east.Turkey wants to preserve Syria’s territorial integrity.1 million Kurds controlling 30% of Syria and kicking out arabs population with their american weapons under the pretext of fighting ISIS ?! Its called ethnic cleansing and it has to stop 🛑.

      @Frenchkisssss Kurds provide stability and security in places of chaos like Syria and Northern Iraq. They are good people and have earned a homeland if anybody on earth has.

  12. If the troops are really upset, I hope they remember that when they vote

  13. I agree that Mattis needs to go public with his thoughts on this current debacle. The Turks are claiming they’ve killed over 300 Kurdish soldiers at this point.

  14. Fred t’rump should have “pulled out” sooner. 😆😝

    • You know, the only reason their family is here is Frederick Drumpf, who came to the U.S. in 1885, and went back to Germany in 1901, was kicked out of Germany in 1905 by royal decree. The reason he came in 1885 was to avoid mandatory military service. He got thrown out of Germany after he went back, because he was, basically, a draft dodger. They changed the name to Trump immediately after coming to the U.S. the second time.

    • 😂😂😂😂😂

    • Fred’s wife should of had an abortion

    • Dude TRUMP is the poster child for birth control

    “They’re personally impacted.” Spoken like a true republican.

    • @Frank Dillard

    • @Joy Phillips is a bot..Russian? ..keeps posting the same thing. So just ignore these posts. Besides it has an error. Trump does not care about isis anymore. He said yesterday he doesn’t care if the Turks release isis prisoners and hopes they go into europe.

      @Frank Dillard joy philipps you really think those troops are going home? Theyre gonna be redeployed. Stupid narrow thinking Trumpist.

  16. This coward draft dodger will be remembered as one of the worst heartless traitor to America in history!

      @Bernie DIAPER SANDERS Lukso — you need to turn off faux news and educate yourself, it is a US fight if you’re smart enough to to see the forest through the trees

    • He is our commander in chief, and what did your pharaoh pansy barak obama do? Now that’s a coward, one who sucked kim jung young’s balls…

      @Mdlclass Worker You’re wasting your time these are Colt 45 members. they just can’t understand. they Are like zombies. Even when trump does things against their own best interest or against America’s best interests. they still say. must follow trump… must follow trump. 🤮🤪

      @Lorna SinAmin washington — so they’re unpatriotic tribalist, racist, morons, I just can’t wait until they climb back under the rocks they’ve been hiding under

  17. Hear that Trump voters? Trump is causing depression in our troops. Look how far you’ve fallen. Traitors, all of you, every one of you who still support him.

    • Whoever still supporting him are disgusting human beings

    • crisostomo ybarra | October 11, 2019 at 11:11 PM | Reply

      Their pride wont let them change clutchy, its sad but thats the way it is. I used to be in a church praise team but they all supported “Tramp” so i left.

    • @crisostomo ybarra I don’t understand how can they claim that they are Christians and love jesus and in the other hand trump is everything jesus is not about

  18. As a Veteran Trump makes me sick, how can he claim victory when we turned our backs on the Kurds.

    • Lorna SinAmin washington | October 12, 2019 at 11:39 AM | Reply

      Jim As a Veteran, I couldn’t agree with you more. he was in Minneapolis the other day Saying that we won. Referring to Syria. and now, the are no more troops in Syria. which are both lies. there are still troops in Syria, and they’re being shot at, as we speak. SMH!

      @B.J Cameron Obviously you’re somebody who never served A-day For your country. You sound so stupid calling that veteran names. you’re ignorant and you don’t know what you’re talking about.

    • Lorna SinAmin washington | October 12, 2019 at 11:43 AM | Reply

      @Jim Reynolds jim as a Veteran myself I couldn’t agree with you more. what’s happening now is a disgrace to the United States and its allies. Something those red hats will never understand.

    • @Lorna SinAmin washington Like so many of my fellow veterans we are appalled at giving Trump the title of Commander in Chief. We were trained to follow orders, the chain of command – no questions. Just like the soldiers at Mi Lai. They (some of them anyway) still live with the horror of an unlawful command. 500 unarmed civilians were murdered. That war was bad, haven’t we learned anything since then?
      Trump is not only the worst president in the history of our (once great) country, he is dangerous as well. One thing is true…we will make America great once again when Trump is nothing more than a bad memory.

    This Army Veteran has never been more angry at Presidential policy.

  20. I like that quote: “If you are not angry, you are not paying attention.”
