    The quest for a Kurdish Free State is a Pandoras box ..You can’t involve yourself in this type of ethnic issue especially when you support both sides never giving clear ideological signals… Erdogan is crazy like a Fox…and that makes two of a kind in this issue…

    Are the Swiss, Germans, Mexicans, English, French and Japanese selling out the Kurds? Why is it the U.S. is responsible? If the rest of the world decides that the Kurds need military assistance, then maybe we should join in. In the meantime, let’s not let the New York Times, or CNN decide who are the good guys and who are the world’s bad guys.

    • What? The “Mexicans” didn’t partner with the Kurds and fight and die alongside them for three years to defeat Sunni extremists. They were a reliable ally and now we just left them to either immediately seek protection from Assad, or else try to fend off the Turkish army.

      And we, as a country, have got to stop this nonsense where media outlets can’t even report the news without being accused of “deciding” something. The New York Times and CNN aren’t “deciding” anything. They are reporting what just happened. It’s not a judgement call. The judgement call was made by Donald Trump, who just left an untold number of people to die at the hands of Erdogan.

      Those are the facts.

    Obviously Erdogan learned from Xi and Kim that if you push back at Trump he cowers in a corner like a scared puppy. Typical bully response.

    • And that’s the other thing here. This was just Trump folding to another strongman.

      Then, just hours later, he jumped on Twitter and threatened to destroy Turkey’s economy after green-lighting Erdogan’s cross-border incursion. He (Trump) is bouncing off the walls. It’s totally out of control. There is just no other way to describe it. He is completely off the rails.

    Surely several $MM/yr of royalty income from two “Trump Tower” licenses in Turkey have nothing to do with this.

    H-Man, truly a sad day. These people fought with us and gave us a foothold against terrorism and now we abandon them. Who would ever partner with us again knowing we sell out? Our foreign policy is in shambles and there is only one person we can thank. The Kurds let us have access in 2003 to invade Iraq when Turkey denied our request for airspace. Turkey buys missiles from Putin and now we turn the Turks loose on the Kurds. As I said, it is a sad day.
