I hate reporting on stuff like this. But, when stuck in Trumpland, all abuses of power are fair game. Trump is busy making nice with Turkey’s President, using quaint imagery to describe the ‘dust-up’ between Turkey and the Kurds.
Turkish officials say that they got everything they wanted from Trump — and even more.
Unfortunately, while this pretend “pause” in the proceedings is going on — numerous foreign outlets, have reported on the Chemical Attacks being conducted against the Kurds — in the last 24 hours. Attacks of suspected napalm and white phosphorus against Kurdish women and children, illegal attacks being conducted by Turkish Forces or their proxies.
Bleed-em and Weep, America.
The Kurds were once our staunch Allies — now they are just Pawns to be crushed, in Trump’s clueless international games. No ‘Red-lines’ required. Just streets stained Kurdish-red, street-fighting which Trump now fully condones.
The remaining question is: Why is Trump caving to Turkey?
The Answer is found in: Just “who benefits” from this Ethnic-cleansing operation — which proceeds with full force in just 4 days. When the Kurds will again be chased out of their homes, either willingly or by horrendous illegal force.
Pelosi had it right, when she astutely said to Trump, “All roads lead to Putin, with you.”
Oh yeah, guess who was guarding all those ISIS Prisoners, that Trump used to brag about?
— The Kurds were.
But not any longer, since their own lives are in grave peril. All thanks to Trump’s caving to an Erdogan phone call, a few weeks ago.
