Very smart not to be involved in the intense fighting along the Turkish Border, for a change. Those that mistakenly got us into the Middle East Wars are still pushing to fight. They have no idea what a bad decision they have made. Why are they not asking for a Declaration of War?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 13, 2019
Do you remember two years ago when Iraq was going to fight the Kurds in a different part of Syria. Many people wanted us to fight with the Kurds against Iraq, who we just fought for. I said no, and the Kurds left the fight, twice. Now the same thing is happening with Turkey……— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 13, 2019
Seeing multiple unconfirmed reports that the Kurds have reached a deal with Assad, whereby Assad’s forces would enter Manbij and Kobani to protect Kurds from Turkey attack https://t.co/7MQ5rs2bqD— Steve Lookner (@lookner) October 13, 2019
BREAKING: Syrian army units moving north to confront “Turkish aggression” on Syrian territory— BNL NEWS (@BreakingNLive) October 13, 2019
Blompf has outrageously betrayed our Kurdish allies in northern Syria who have responded by cutting a deal with … Bashar al-Assad … who is the president of Syria.
“Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Sunday the last U.S. troops in northern Syria will be evacuated, one week after the White House surprisingly granted tacit approval to a Turkish invasion of that region that has resulted in the slaughter of U.S.-allied Kurdish fighters.
“I spoke with the president last night after discussions with the rest of the national security team, and he directed that we begin a deliberate withdrawal of forces from northern Syria,” Esper told host Margaret Brennan on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” …”
1,000 American troops are being pulled out of northern Syria to avoid getting caught in a crossfire between the Syrian Army and Turkish Army now that the Kurds have cut a deal with Assad.
Defense Secretary Mark Esper DID NOT say on Face the Nation this morning that all American troops are being pulled out of Syria. He said that they are only pulled out of a war zone. Presumably, the American troops will be redeployed elsewhere in Syria for Israel’s sake.
The Turks are bombing and killing “journalists” in Syria now:
BREAKING: Foreign journalists targeted by Turkish air strike in northern Syria. U.S. Officials say situation on the ground ‘rapidly deteriorating’— BNL NEWS (@BreakingNLive) October 13, 2019
A Turkish airstrike hit a convoy of civilians in northeastern Syria. Numerous journalists were with them and several are reported killed. We don’t yet know their identities. This is the France 2 team letting colleagues know that they are okay. #Awful. https://t.co/p11Edsu91w— Rukmini Callimachi (@rcallimachi) October 13, 2019
The “journalists” were travelling with “civilians” … LMAO

Trump is right that this place is a mess like the Balkans:
He is not ending the “endless wars” though.
Israel and its puppets in the Republican Senate won’t let him end the war in Syria. He also recently sent 2,000 more troops to Saudi Arabia to join the 1,000 other ones who were stationed there earlier this summer. Blompf was cocked and loaded and had ordered a strike on Iran after that stupid drone was shot down in the Persian Gulf in June. Tucker Carlson persuaded him to postpone the war against Iran until after the 2020 election.
