  1. Turkey are American allies .Why you people think turkey did nothing for so many years when Isis was in control . Now all of a sudden it's a problem . When Isis is no more in control . Lol

  2. – Erdgoan called Trump on the 6th Oct to inform him that the vast majority of Turkish parliament (conservatives, liberals and centrists) had approved and is pushing for a full scale military campaign against all PKK affiliated groups that are within 30km of the Turkish border (and is expected to happen very soon). In the call they stated that they will be careful not to get too close to American soldiers but cannot guarantee they won't.

    – During the last 4 decades, Turkey has lost over 40,000 civilians to PKK and YPG terrorist bombings. The PKK is recognized by the US and its allies as a terrorist organization. And admittedly in congregational hearings, many defense secretaries and military officials testified that the YPG is a branch of the PKK and takes orders from them, and have been re-branded as the SDF to help the US fight ISIS, in exchange for their help they would be granted rule of all captured territories. So Trump was advised to avoid this type of confrontation as it is meaningless for the US. Risking war with the 2nd largest army in NATO (threatening the future of NATO as a union) would be a very foolish move considering that the YPG are essentially a terrorist organization.

    – This same scenario happened with the Free Syrian Army (the Arabs who revolted against Assad), which the US funded and then later abandoned in 2016 (for the Russians to pick off). Trump's decision did not incentivize Turkey to move in. It was planned for over a year, and Turkey had already conducted a similar campaign last Year in Afrin, another YPG controlled territory. We did not see any outrage back then. And also in Iraq in 2017 when the Iraqi’s invaded Kurdistan in order to stop them from declaring independence. We didn't see any outrage then. It was not mainstream enough to trigger large-scale media coverage.

    – The Rojava's military wings (YPG) have also been condemned internationally for violating multiple human rights. These include: Bombing villages with Zero military value. Forced recruiting of Syrian Villagers. Forced Recruiting of Children. Torturing forced recruits who desert the YPG. And also stealing homes and shops from Syrians and claiming them for the YPG. These accusations have been made by the UN, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.

    – The Turkish assault has ended now following a Trilateral deal with the US and Russia. And up until today, over 100,000 Syrian refugees have been resettled back into the safe zone under the supervision of the UN. According to the UN Security Council, the Turkish assault has wielded minimal civilian casualties compared to almost every other military campaign conducted by NATO. Currently stands at 125.

  3. As in 2003, it is all about the OIL

  4. Funny to see how the rest of the world is so dependent on USA's order. USA leaves, chaos ensues. We are looking at WW3 beginning.

  5. God bless you President Trump for destroying Syria. The Syrians distribute heroin from Kerala, the world's largest narcotraffiker, through Europe and into the USA via France and the Netherlands, driving our girls into addiction and prostitution.

  6. Wait until you find out about Eric Ciaramella, Schiff’s ‘whistleblower,’

  7. This Administration has done so much damage at home and abroad. Trump needs to be impeached.

  8. Incredible how much blood Americans have on their hands.

  9. Doesn’t General Dynamics pays NBC’s salaries? Of course, the MSM loves to promote war. These journalists are blood thirsty and only manipulate facts

  10. TRUMP NEVER WANTED ANY MUSLIMS HERE IN AMERICA BECAUSE OF HIS RACIST WAYS & NOW HE'S TRYIN' TO USE THAT AS AN EXCUSE TO SO-CALLED BRING OUR SOLDIER'S HOME WHEN ALL HE DID WAS SHIFT THEM TO THE SAUDI'S WHO AT LEAST PUT MONEY IN HIS POCKET!!💯😈🆗🇺🇸✌😎
