Skip to comments.Trump defends Syria move: The Kurds 'didn't help us' in Normandy
Posted on 10/09/2019 9:15:37 PM PDT by Meatspace
President Trump on Wednesday criticized the Kurds, saying they didn't help the United States during World War II and that they were only fighting for their land in Syria during the battle against ISIS.
The Kurds are fighting for their land, Trump told reporters at the White House during an event in the Roosevelt Room.
And as somebody wrote in a very, very powerful article today, they didnt help us in the second World War, they didnt help us with Normandy as an example. They mentioned names of different battles. But theyre there to help us with their land and thats a different thing.

The goal of the left is to destroy America. By having our military get bogged down and consume its equipment in an endless churning of missions causes our strategic readiness to deteriorate. Getting our military out of these Locations and stage them for a global conflict with a highly well-equipped army, such as Russian or or China, is a much better strategy for America.
I think Mark Levin said something about this being an unprecedented action.
Did he forget about us abandoning VietNam????
I don’t disagree with you, but Trump might have done better in this instance by not explaining his decision at all, other than to say our troops had to be moved out of harm’s way.
The Kurds were heavily involved in the Armenian massacres in World War I. So, I have some sympathy for them today, but only some. They are Moslems after all, and might be characterized as the best of a bad lot.
This whole thing is messy and while I would like our troops home, doing so and greenlighting the Turkish invasion and likely genocide of Kurds is simply wrong. S
They are commies. Actual Maoist commies. They are Muslim commies.
They were fighting for their own land.
Remind me why I should care?
How many Freepers know all the sides to the intersection of Syrian civil war
And Iranian hegemony
And how they have all shifted and ebbed
The Petro Royals and their divisions
Christians in Lebanon and Syria
Youd be surprised who on that list supported ISIS because they hated Hezbollah more
Its a huge mess and we cannot fix it
I supportTrump totally. This is one of his few mistakes IMHO. Even so, at this point, he and his actions are the only things that can save our Republic from final decay and destruction, IMHO.

But they took the bebes from the incubators
HW BUSH CIA SPOOK.... USED THIS LIE FOR THE FIRST ARAB WAR INVOLVEMENT SINCE THE RUSSIANS WERE NO LONGER THE BOOGEYMAN!!!
I don’t care!
Watch the video of his entire comment.
He was quoting an article he had just read.
I agree. Very well said. There are many of us out here that harbor the same sentiments.

I support Trump but I am not sure even if he was 10X as powerful as many thing he is that he could save us....
He can slow the destruction, delay it maybe... but it is only a brief respite .....
Use the time wisely.
during the Iraq war, Americans were only safe in the Kurdish areas. We shouldn’t be trashing them or giving Turkey an opportunity to massacre them.

Kudos sir!!! I could not possibly agree with you more
Turkey is said to have remained neutral during WWII. But when Stalin publicly demanded that they turn over the Turkish straits, because they were a young nation, and knew they had no power to deal with Stalin, they ran to NATO, and asked to become a member. Now they should be tossed out, and shunned.
