Skip to comments.Romney slams ceasefire deal, calls Trump's Syria move 'a bloodstain' in US history

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) ripped the administration over the recently announced cease-fire in Syria, calling President Trump's decision to withdraw troops "a bloodstain in the annals of American history."
"The announcement today is being portrayed as a victory. It is far from a victory. Serious questions remain about how the decision was reached precipitously to withdraw from Syria and why that decision was reached," Romney said.
Romney's Senate floor speech came after Vice President Pence announced a five-day cease-fire.
Under the agreement Pence said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan agreed to halt Turkeys offensive in Syria for 120 hours in order to allow Kurdish YPG forces to evacuate. The agreement will also maintain a permanent cease-fire once the evacuation is complete.
Romney added the administration needs to explain what the U.S. role will be moving forward. And the cease-fire, he argued, does not change that the United States "abandoned" the Kurds.
"Adding insult to dishonor, the administration speaks cavalierly, even flippantly, even as our ally has suffered death and casualty," Romney said. "We once abandoned a red line. Now we abandon an ally."

Is there any Republics. Party plank of politician that Mittens Romney has supported? If we get a big enough Senate Majority in 2020 he should be removed as a member of the Republican Party.
Unless you simply hate Trump without logic, I have a hard time understanding why we need to be here. Syria has nothing. Turkeys worthless. The Kurds have even less. We have no national interest here. ISIS? Theyre all over the world in various incarnations. Why is it our problem to irradiate them? Why not Europe or the Arabs???
I cant see a single good reason to shed our childrens blood in this sh*thole, and Romney can either go there himself as a soldier of fortune or shut the hell up.
When did the spineless, gutless, nadless Mittens go out to Dover to comfort the families of those arriving in flag-draped coffins? When did the spineless, gutless, nadless Mittens go to Walter Reed to comfort the wounded?
Romney is such a puke. Utah sure screwed the rest of the country with this worthless, arrogant, ego-maniac schmuck.
Mittens isn’t worthy of licking our troops boots.
Kate Steinle’s death in a sanctuary city is a bloodstain on our history. Corportist Romney’s POTUS nomination is an underwear stain on our history. Romney is making it so easy to “vote for my wife” should a GOPe candidate appear on my ballot.
I hadn’t thought of that being a concern of the turncoats in Congress, but it probably is one thing they considered.
Yup. It was committed through Mormon treachery. A very dark stain on the Mormons.
The elitist mitt has a very large extended family. Have any of them ever served and been placed in harm’s way? Did mitt, the loser, ever serve?
Every so often I would go on line and find the site of Time magazine covers from the time they began until they folded.
Each weeks cover would represent someone important (at least at the time). I consider myself fairly knowledgeable but I am amazed at how many of those men (and later women) have remained important.
But most have been forgotten. I would have to look them up to see just what it was that got their face on Time magazine.
Ten years after he dies few outside his family will know who Mitt was. Twenty years and he will be completely forgotten.
President Trump however (like him or hate him) will always be remembered.
So Mitt, please sit down and shut up and try and think of something useful you can do with your life.
He should stay in SLC an polish those golden plates and wash his magic undies.
Hey, Willard, attacking Trump ain’t gettin you no love out here in the base.
Just how much did Qatar promise to donate to LDS?
His parents shoulda named him d1ck
An area the size of Hawaii... if the Turks can hold it against Syria/ Kurds /Russia.
For a start it’s OK. There’s no “magic bullet point” to straighten this out. It’s gonna be a long process. If massares and atrocities are avoided that will be an accomplishment.
Romney is the biggest jackass in politics today. He is trying to advance his standing by all these stupid moves like criticizing Trump and everything he does. What an ass!
He’s insane and evil.
That's Jamaican/Rastafarian for "tampon."
You’re a propagandist and northern Syria isn’t Hawaii. When China tries for Hawaii China will be reduced to nothing and rebuilt as a capitalist American ally. Like you give a rat’s ass about some insignificant chunk of Syria.
An FR article above this article...."Utah leads states in gun sale growth over past decade, study shows".
I think I understand why...
Better than a sh##stain
Willard gets worse every day. I swear he is demented.
