Steve Mnuchin Hits Turkey With ‘Very, Very Strong’ Sanctions For Invasion Trump Allowed

Eight days ago, Donald Trump told Recep Tayyip Erdogan that the US would not stand in the way while the Turkish military invaded northern Syria. After all, what could go wrong? Quite a bit, it turns out. In the past six days alone, more than 300 people have been killed, an estimated 500 ISIS sympathizers have broken out of low-security facilities, highway executions are a semi-regular thing and Bashar al-Assad's forces are being welcomed as heroes in towns and cities they haven't controlled in

  1. The ones I talk to seem to like it. Trump promised to pull us out of endless wars and that is what they choose to see him doing. These are folks who think that we should nuke the region and turn it into a sheet of glass.

    1. You must not live in the south. The Scotch-Irish DNA runs deep. As in “These Colors Don’t Run” tee shirts.

      Mmmm, I don’t see those shirts being offered all over the internet like they were when Obama obliged the Iraqi government by standing down.

  2. Independents are moving in the right direction in regards to the Ukraine corruption. More and more veterans are beginning to understand that Trump has proven himself as unfit to serve as CIC for another term. I am including silent rural voters in both of those categories.

    1. yeah, and I don’t get the impression that Republicans are liking what they’re hearing in these depositions over the past week either. maybe they just don’t want to disparage these diplomats, but somehow i doubt it. they didn’t mind disparaging Mueller, a life-long Republican and a veteran.

      it seems to me that at least some folks on the Hill who were squarely on team Trump are unnerved by the Ukraine thing and this Syria move was just insult to injury

  3. ‘United wishes and good will cannot overcome brute facts,’ Churchill wrote in his War Memoirs. ‘Truth is incontrovertible. Panic may resent it. Ignorance may deride it. Malice may distort it. But there it is.’
