  • Former National Security Advisor Ambassador Susan Rice, who has a new memoir, 'Tough Love,' believes Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. Troops from northern Syria is a dangerous betrayal to Kurdish allies who have been fighting ISIS on America's behalf. #Colbert #LSSC #Interviews

He is a stable genius i agree that now i see how he is fooling all country...

      Come on....this is a quid pro quo. After a telephone call with Erdogen, Trump pulls troops out of Syria. The next day Turkey attacks Syria. Turkey gets to kill all the Kurds and Trump gets something in return..Maybe, some "made up" information on Biden or maybe safety for his two hotels in Turkey. Trump is a super egomaniacal narcissist. He feels "absolutely zero" about the Kurds who are getting slaughtered. And, if the Kurds call in the Russians to "save them", then that's OK too because it helps to pay Putin back for whatever Trump owes him! Every decision Trump makes about America is based solely on "what is best for Trumps pocketbook!'l His usurper presidency is one long "conflict of interest" scene". Congress needs to STOP the withdrawal of the 1000 American Troops, plus send extra troops temporarily to protect our allies, the Kurds. And, Congress needs to STOP the presidency of Trump by removing him immediate with the 25th. Congress needs to STOP thinking of Trump as in any way a "normal" president. Trump is a,complete "abberation" of any other presidentc. He only became president to " make himself and his children money! He could care less if he destroys everything, the constitution, democracy, decency, and even the physical world if he can "con" everyone out of money!

                      For all the ignorant drinking koolaid fools. You dont even know what the Americans and Kurds and Turks and Islamic state were all doing. American and allied forces have been fighting along side the Kurds for a few years now. ..our Special forces have been right there with the Peshmerga Kurdish special forces.... Americans went there to train them and then as things went on ended up fighting right beside them.. The Kurds knew we could not stay forever and in fact are being forced out... it is the Sharia fanatic Erdogan that said ...we will not fire on kurds or us and her allies as you withdrawal your troops. ...That was the deal. ..however no one was given enough time to move. The Russian went in and started bombing the Kurds immediately. .Erdogan knows every square inch of our military bases. But he has betrayed his own people .. as well as the Americans who helped him when ISIS WAS ON THEIR MARCH TO SLAUGHTER .EVERYONE. THE AMERICAN FORCES STAYED THERE TO HELP BUT WERE FORCED OUT. SO we trained these guys to fight and they are damn good soldiers. .I want our troops home too!!!! I have special interest that's been gone way too long. ....

                              And by the way...the middle east theology will never change. We need to let them settle their differences. We will never stop the slaughter that Islam curses every country it controls. Obummer did nothing to make America safer. Remember the "video" and Bengahzi. She needs to go live a different life.

                                            Is it possible that this is the only way out Trump got to hide an even bigger scandal?
                                            Maybe somebody has leverage over him if he didn't take this extreme step?
                                            Because despite all he says and does, for some reason I don't think he likes seeing people killed. He wasn't too enthusiastic about working with John Bolton to drop bombs that would kill a lot of people.

                                              Here is a video with Putin discussing the Syrian situation from a Russian perspective. I encourage anyone who is interested in a nuanced, and expansive view of the Syrian conflict, to watch it. It always helps to hear both sides:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKxZ45sBsmU&t=1s

                                                    *THE FACT OF THE MATTER, ONE WHICH AMERICAN MEDIA LIKE CNN DO NOT MENTION ODDLY IS THAT THE USA MILITARY IS IN SYRIA ILLEGALLY!*
                                                    Like it or not but Syria IS A SOVERIGN NATION, The Syrian government asked both Russian and Iranian forces, the Syrian government clearly stated THAT THEY DID NOT GIVE PERMISSION FOR AMERICAN FORCES TO ENTER SYRIA, America ignored the Syrian government and out forces inside Syria, WHICH IS AN ILLEGAL ACT UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW, AMERICAS ACTIONS IN SYRIA UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW IS TECHNICALLY AN ILLEGAL DECLARATION OF WAR, AND AMERICANS ARE THUS NOT OROTECTED FROM COMMITING WAR CRIMES, ONE WHICH THE RUSSIANS HAVE MADE WASHINGTON AWARE OF. ALSO SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE AMERICAS ACTIONS COULD SEE USA CITIZENS BEING HELD TO ACCOUNT AT THE HAGUE,

                                                    the Syrian conflict was a INTERNAL CIVIL WAR, and so ANY NATION OR STATE THAT IS OUTSIDE OF SYRIA OR DOES NOT BORDER WITH SYRIA is not permitted under international law to enter the conflict unlike requested by the states affected.

                                                    *AMERICA SHOULD BEVER HAVE BEEN IN SYRIA, TRUTH IS AMERICA HAS GOT TO GET COMPLETELY OUT OF THE MIDDLE EAST, That region was been unstable for thousands of years, NOTHING WILL COME GOOD OUT OYT AMERICA BEING IN THE MIDDLE EAST. Also the so called poor Kurdish allies CNN talks about are nothing more than ACTUAL TERROR GROUPS that has been terrorising both turkey and syria for centuries, just like the the Sunni Muslim Turk's and Saudis have been doing to them for centuries too!! NO ONE GROUP IS INNOCENT! FUK THE KURDS WERE ABUSING AND TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE TIME AMERICAN TROOPS WERE IN THE REGION BECAUSE THEY WERE USJNG THAT TIME MOVING IN AND CLAIMING LAND THAT WAS PART OF TURKET AND SYRIA AND OCCUPIED TO OTHER TURKISH AND SYRIAN MINORITIES, for afew years now the Kurdish militias have been encroaching into regions that Turkey had set up as buffers in and along its southern border with syria, beteeen them and the Kurds, and Turkey had warned the Kurds aswell as telling the the US that they would not tolerate Kurdish territory THST close to their southern border.*

                                                    *AMERICAN FORCES JN THE MIDDLE EAST ONLY SERVES TWO NATIONS NATIONAL SECURITY, ISRAEL AND SAUDI ARABIA, ITS TIME YOU GUYS TOLD THOSE TWO THAT THEY CAN FIGHT THEIR OWN BATTLES AND THAT NO MORE AMERICAN BLOOD WILL BD SPILT FOR ISRAELLI AND SAUDI INTERESTS*

                                                      I HAVE. NO IDEA WHY NO ONE ELSE IS SUSPICIOUS ABOUT THE TIMING OF TRAITOR TRUMP’S DISGUSTING, COWARDLY BETRAYAL OF THE TURKS.

                                                      Does no one else think that THE DESPERATE, DESPICABLE DOTARD who has been both BEGGING and EXTORTING ( depending on their size and relationship to America) COUNTRIES LEADERS TO HELP HIM TRY AND HURT JOE BIDEN and to HELP HIM PROMOTE RUSSIA BY TRYING TO REWRITE HISTORY AND MAKE RUSSIA THE POOR VICTIMS OF UKRAINE AND HILLARY CLINTON , WHO IMMEDIATELY AFTER TALKING TO TURKEYS ERDOWAN, WITHOUT CONSULTING WITH ANYONE...NOT HIS ADVISERS, NOT HIS ADMINISTRATION, NO REPUBLICAN SENATORS OR EVEN ANYONE IN IN THE MILITARY ....TO REMOVE THE TROOPS......might of done so....because after him a few weeks ago IN A INTERVIEW HE ONCE AGAIN MADE IT CLEAR TO THE WORLD THAT HE WOULD ACCEPT HELP FROM ANY COUNTRY, INCLUDING THE ONES WHO DESPISE AMERICA....AND HATE DEMOCRACY EVEN MORE, AND THEN WE LEARNED THAT HE and his SLEAZY LAWYERS, BARR and GUILIANI as well as many of the COMPLETELY UNQUALIFIED, INCOMPETENT IDIOTS that he has put into the top positions in every government agency...like SONLAND the Diplomat to the EU...who got the job, not because he was at all qualified for it...(HE IS , another ENTITLED, RICH , P.O.S. LIKE THE FIVE TIME DRAFT DODGING COWARD, HAD A RICH DADDY WHO BOUGHT HOTELS) .but because he DONATED OVER 1 MILLION DOLLARS TO TRUMPS CAMPAIGN..( Sonland had also tried to buy himself a Ambassadorship, when Bush Jr. was ( also like TRAITOR TRUMP ) WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT EVEN THOUGH HE ACTUALLY LOST THE ELECTION, BECAUSE OF MASS CHEATING.....However his ATTEMPT failed...likely because Bush was just a puppet and it was actually CHENEY who pulled the strings, and unlike the ENTIRE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION are INCOMPETENT FOOLS) have also been travelling to COUNTRIES THAT THEY THINK THEY COULD EITHER CONVINCE OR EXTORT INTO HELPING THEM RIG THE 2020 Election and PROMOTE RUSSIA....and then of course the Wannabe DICKtator ( heavy emphasis on the DICK) rushed to the cameras to SPEW PUBLICLY THAT CHINA SHOULD ALSO INVESTIGATE BIDEN etc.....he DIDNT DO THIS BY ACCIDENT OF COURSE..and he also didnt do it because he thinks its ok...

                                                      HE HAS AND IS CONTINUING TO DO THIS BECAUSE HE IS DESPERATE AND SCARED...

                                                      Trump made the PLEA TO CHINA...because it was CLEAR THAT THEY HAD FAILED IN UKRAINE....because even if UKRAINE is crooked enough to create dirt on Biden and lie about Russia...NO ONE IN THE AMERICAN MEDIA, OR THE DEMOCRATS, AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE...would find their claims CREDIBLE.

                                                      So THE FIVE TIME DRAFT DODGING COWARD MADE THE PLEA TO CHINA....because the very next week, the Chinese were going to be meeting with the Trump Administration in America to discuss Trade Negotiations.....and CLEARLY THE DESPERATE, DUMBASS DOTARD, was hoping that the Chinese would play ball.......

                                                      It just seems EXTREMELY SUSPICIOUS and EXTREMELY CONVENIENT that THE ADMITTED SEXUAL PERVERT, SERIAL ADULTERER and CREDIBLY ACCUSED ( by almost 20 women and 1 child) who a few months ago had brought up the idea of removing the troops ....but he never did BECAUSE IF THE SEVERE BACKLASH FROM THE REPUBLICANS.....AND OF COURSE EVERYONE OF HIS ADVISERS IN THE WHITE HOUSE, AND IN THE DOD, AND MILITARY.....

                                                      Yet despite knowing this, A FEW DAYS AFTER, THE WHISTLEBLOWER SCANDAL ABOUT UKRAINE WAS REVEALED, AS WELL AS THE FACT THAT BARR AND GUILLIANI ( and possibly POMPEO and PENCE) had been Travelling to MORE THEN JUST UKRAINE TRYING TO EITHER CONVINCE OR STRONGARM COUNTRIES INTO STARTING FAKE INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE BIDENS AND LYING ABOUT RUSSIAS MASSIVE DISINFORMATION CAMPAIGNS AND CYBER ATTACKS ON AMERICA’S Election to CHEAT TRAITOR TRUMP INTO THE PRESIDENCY, we learn that .....

                                                      IMMEDIATELY AFTER SPEAKING WITH THE LEADER OF TURKEY OVER THE PHONE...TRUMP WITHOUT SPEAKING TO ANYONE FOR ADVICE OR EVEN TAKING THE TIME TO INFORM ANYONE...INCLUDING THE MILITARY COMMANDERS ON THE GROUND, AND KNOWING THAT NO ONE HIS ADMINISTRATION THOUGHT REMOVING THE TROOPS WAS A GOOD DECISION, AND THAT HE WOULD FACE EXTREME BACKLASH FROM THE REPUBLICAN SENATORS, TRUMP HANGS UP AND THEN REMOVES THE TROOPS FROM SYRIA.....


                                                      COULD THE REASON FOR IT BE, THAT ERDOWAN EITHER OFFERED OR AGREED TO HELP TRUMP BY MANUFACTURING DIRT ON BIDEN AND HELP HIM WITH HIS PATHETIC ATTEMPT TO DISCREDIT EVERY DEFENCE AND INTELLIGENCE AGENCY IN AMERICA AS WELL AS IN NUMEROUS ALLIED COUNTRIES THAT HAVE FOUND WITHOUT A DOUBT THAT RUSSIA ABSOLUTELY INTEFERED IN THE AMERICAN ELECTION WITH ONE GOAL.....TO RIG THE ELECTION FOR THE CLEARLY COMPROMISED CON MAN CRIMINAL TRAITOR TRUMP!


                                                      If I was a reporter or on one of the Congress’ Committees, I would BE DEMANDING TO SEE THE TRANSCRIPT OF HIS CALL WITH ERDOWAN.

If an ally starts to misbehave they will be punished under criminal laws. There are no "friendships" between countries. Only diplomatic political relationships. If NATO member Turkey starts to get crazy they will be removed from the NATO. "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" only applies to individuals , not countries.

Trump took a friend and ally and turned them into a possible future terrorist threat and/or future enemy on the ground in the Middle East. To say nothing about America's future ability to create future coalitions.

I said that months ago when withdrawal was first spoken of. They’ve screwed the Kurds before, even letting Saddam gas them when he was fighting Iran for them. Saudi is infinitely more important to the owners of the US government right now.
