    I don't think Trump understands how incredibly bad he put our troops in. There are Special Forces teams now embedded and working alongside local forces in other countries like Afganistan and Africa. How are they to trust us now? He just lost a vote.

    Turkey is an intruder country, killing dozens of civilians and innocent babies. They just did so to consolidate the ruling party's (AKP) power and to win next elections, which may take place earlier than its due. People in Turkey were talking about AKP's corruption, economic crisis and Turkish lira hit against the dollar before this intrusion so they needed an imaginative enemy and to direct the public's hatred to so-called "outside forces' here. However, there is also strong propaganda carried out by pro-government media outlets (almost all of them) presenting deceptive news all the time to make poor people believe that a Turkey, as a descendant of a great Ottoman Empire, will win all kind of war no matter of what. Turkish citizens are really obsessive about "nationalism" and "religion", which they think of themselves as a defender of 'Islam and caliphate', which directly correspondences with ISIS's aim in the region which is also why Turkey is supporting them. It is not much known, but joining rates to ISIS have so much among Turks. Like magnetic attraction, it seems the Turkish government is really keen to save ISIS cells in the region and release them to exploit their shadowy purposes. Dictator Erdogan, before the deep in debt and huge devastation, is playing his biggest gamble

    Turkey responded to mortar fire from SDF.
    The shells landed about 1 kilometer away from the base.

    If the US troops were in danger, than because the SDF use them as shields.

    Kurds and Turks are friends and YPG-PKK does not represent the Kurds. The ypg is a leftist Marxist-Leninist terror organization and it is recognizes as such by not only Turkey but also the EU and the U.S. The YPG caused millions of Syrians to flee to Turkey and now it is getting a taste of its own medicine. Turkey has been fighting this terror group since 1970s and the Soviets were the ones who created the PKK. So it is an embarrasment that we deserted our strong ally the Turks who fought side by side with us in Korea. Turkey has lost 40,000 civilians because of PKK attacks. What do we expect them to do? If U.S faced a similar threat from Mexico or Canada what would the U.S do? Say Germany supported a group in Canada that attacked the U.S, would we still not have destroyed it in its source? The media is very biased and this will only hurt innocent people more.

    Maybe 10-20 percent of Kurdish people support pkk YPG so stop calling terrorists as Kurdish
    And if u are going to claim they are not terrorist watch this confessions

    How do you cooperate with a terrorist organization as an legimit army,

    Yes, you heard right. You change their name, and put democrat somewhere between)
    Do u think that it is a smart move to do it next to your nato ally border, giving them heavy weapons and training them?

    They dont know where to go?… 3,6 million fled to turkey, they can do it too… if the YPG allows them. But actually the YPG needs that civillians for human shield protection. this is expected from a terrorist YPG. The pople who fllee from their towns should know that Turkey is accepting refugees from syria. everybody knows this very well. The question is, will the YPG allow it 😉

    okay so for the past hours I been reconducting my research. And this is what I found out. During the time of the Syrian civil war the Syrian government pulled troops away from northern Syria to fight against the rebels. At this time the Kurds in North Syria decided to form the DEMOCRATIC union party make their own government. They established the YPG to protect Kurdish living in the north. As they where forming there there own Kurdish state called rojava. Syrian army try to push back the Kurds. But the YPG reppeled while taking territory in the process. They also battle with other Islamist groups. Now what's interesting part In 2015 turkey ALLEGEDLY accused the YPG of ethic cleansing. At this time American where supporting the YPG so they took an official investigation into this and found no evidence of it. Now turkey also accuses of the PKK (a communist terrorist) forming the YPG. Which they didn't but the PKK and YPG had ties which America admitted so a general the suggested a new name to separate from the PKK since the turkey views them as terrorist. So in 2015 the SAYRIAN DEMOCRATIC FORCED was formed and continued to fight ISIS backed and supported by the United States untill well trump decisions.

    America is acting very much like a prostitute
    It is unclear whether it is on it's NATO ally's side clearing the way for a Turkish intrusion, or leaving it's terrorist YPG ally to fend for themselves when SHTF, or paving the way for the underlying cause of this conflict which is for a greater israel

    The US forces pulled out of Syria, which was a dumb Trump mistake. My guess is the Kurdish underground want Trump to be shot.

    Why should america police the world?? Why must american blood continue to spill cuz those countries in the middle east with all those muslim backgrounds are far away from being a godly nations. So much wars there and ages of bloodshed! No army can police the middle east without continual bloodshed, the countries in the middle east must fight fight fight until they are all weary of seeing death and blood.
