      Destroy the economy of Turkey? That's what Trump want you to believe? You can add that to the rest of Lies as told to the public? Knowing he owns two Towers and make money off?

                  Steve Douchebag was desperate to say something to support Trump but it’s difficult to say something positive about treachery and betrayal, of course he manages to say something totally beneath any genuine journalist ! (Sorry of course he’s not a journalist just a high paid lackey)

If other country's stop selling military stuff, the US wont have any Tanks - Jets - Ships - Drones - missiles. the US buys more Tech - Software - Hardware then any other country in the top 10. The US needs others more then others need the US.

                                                  While most of the time I've found what Trump has done laughable, it feels really bad to be laughing at leaving the kurds to be steamrolled by Turkey. A country by all western standards, who doesn't respect human rights and who is constantly edging towards a dictatorship... If any country deserves to be tossed out of Nato, turkey is the one so long as Erdogan remains in power...

I know I personally will never forgive them for selling out the country they live in just for the empty promise of money, but I am biased against that sort of thing.

                                                          Rather than Kurdish fighters that helped the U.S. to defeat ISIS, what we have is the next: U.S. sponsored and armed rebels to oust Bashar Alazar for the sake of U.S. and other Western allies, after some time most of these rebels ended up opposing Western interests and forming ISIS, then U.S. declared ISIS was terrorist and U.S. had to look for others allies within Syria. The only ones that U.S. could find were the Kurds, whom were courted by the promise of get a independent State away Syria, something that everybody knows that was lawfully impossible and that Turkey would never allow it because for the point of view of Turkey the PKK and the Kurdish armed forces are terrorists. Turkey is a very important strategic ally for the NATO, so Trump had to choose between protect Kurds, dismember NATO and turn Turkey into an enemy (the only NATO member that has true influence in Middle East), or abandon Kurds, that paradoxically is the best option to get the peace in Syria, because Kurds have been forced to negotiate with Syria government to reach agreements and join their forces to expel the common enemy (the Turks).

                                                            The Russians told Trump that America's real enemy is COBRA -- a ruthless terrorist organization DETERMINED TO RULE THE WORLD -- and that he should pull out of Syria to carry the fight to COBRA. To take on Serpentor and his ilk, Trump has already directed that $200 million from the Pentagon's service member healthcare budget be diverted on an emergency basis to building up our country''s daring, highly-trained special missions force (codenamed: GI JOE).

UK sent their bombers full of... leaf letters calling for peace. Poor Brits needed some carrots to improve their eyes enough to realise that they were not bombs, but then it was too late for Poland. France attacked but then got scared of some border police so they retreated and started "phoney war". That is one of major source of distrust in Polish people towards NATO. Now if we add USA to countries that are known not to help their allies, things start looking grim.

Trump obviously does not believe in meddling in a border dispute that has going on for centuries. He has argued that middle east wars are a waste of money and does not achieve anything. Maybe one day the peoples in the middle east can sit down and have a last peace agreement; this is what happened in Europe after WW2. I am sorry for the Kurds but Trump is wise to not get involved in a war between Turkey and Syria. I am no fan of Trump but I understand his reasoning, he has explained himself very clearly in his own entertaining way.

Its hilarious to watch.Its shocking how terrified of him and his twitter account they are.
