    I don't think this has anything to do with campaign promises. I think everyone who has something on Trump knows that while he's weak, this is the best time to cash in your chips before the tables close.

    The Kurds are very happy.

    Well at least the ones who aren't dead are happy to be alive is that what Trump means?

    His comment about them being like kids in a sandlot you have to let them fight it out is stunning. A better analogy would be like one 8 year old kid in a sandlot going up against a 250 pound 25 year old, armed with guns , and the 8 year old has his hands shackled to his feet.

    What is happening is appalling but the 8 year old has guns too.

    Yes but there's in reality 1 8 year old to hundreds of 25 year olds. They Kurds are totally overmatched they would be slaughtered if we hadn't been there in the past to help.

    If a dem did this all those gun crazy lunatics would be shouting about the Dems weakening our military presence on the world stage.

    I’m all for a withdrawal of troops but only if it doesn’t result in abandoning allies and doesn’t destabilize the global theater.

    Forget about getting the analogy accurate, the very intent of the comment - they need to fight and kill one and other and it’s totally normal - is a disgraceful comment for a world leader.

    No matter how you slice it, this will hurt him in the eyes of those in the military. I'm sure many actives and vets would love to leave the ME, but not like this and especially not by turning our backs on one of the only groups that was willing to put their lives on the line against our mutual enemy.

    That's why I believe there's way more behind this than 'keeping campaign promises.' That's the narrative they came up with after the fact and the lack of coherent messaging supports it.

    Smooth operation we have going over there. Great and unmatched wisdom on display.

    True. Can't trust someone with a name like that. He sounds like a bad hombre.
