A tremendous deception has been perpetrated on the American public.
The fake news, Democratic Party, and neoconservatives within the GOP have gone into hysterics over President Donald Trumps recent decision to remove troops from Northern Syria, in what they are calling a betrayal of Kurdish allies.
Big League Politics has reported on the Kurds setting ISIS terrorists free at several key junctures throughout 2017 when the war against the caliphate was not yet decided. We also reported that the Kurds have been releasing ISIS terrorists in recent days as a ploy to lure U.S. troops back into the region.
The reason why a Kurdish terrorist group in Syria has gained widespread mainstream esteem is because of a public relations campaign that originated during the Obama administration.
US Special Operations Command commander General Raymond Thomas explained durig a 2017 interview how he worked as an Obama administration official to help re-brand the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), an infamous terrorist organization, as the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to help them gain sympathy with the unsuspecting American public:
The PKK is a group that formed as a Marxist-Leninist resistance faction that has sought to unite the Kurds, and targeted Turkey with acts of terrorist violence for over three decades. They are listed formally as a terrorist organization by the United States, European Union, United Kingdom, Turkey, and Japan.
The Kurds will defend themselves to the end, so long as this is the Turkish approach of course the PKK will escalate the war. Not only in Kurdistan, but in the rest of Turkey as well, PKK leader Cemil Bayik said in a BBC interview in 2016.
Over 40,000 people have died in the ongoing conflict between the PKK and the Turks. Turkish dictator Recep Erdogan has taken a hard-line approach in stopping the terrorist violence of PKK.
It is not possible for us to continue the peace process with those who threaten our national unity and brotherhood, Erdogan has said about the PKK.
Now, Turkey is conducting military exercises against the re-branded PKK in Northern Syria, and they believe their adversaries deserve no sympathy.
It is clearly obvious that our operation targets not the Syrian people, or the Kurds there, but terrorists, Erdogan said about their recent military operations against the Kurds.
Turkeys military power is sufficient to crash the terrorist organization in a couple of days in all of the operation zone, if we did not act sensitively [on civilian casualties], he added. But we work as precise as a jeweler and show utmost efforts not to allow even one civilians nosebleed.
With the facts being made clear regarding the Turkish-PKK conflict, President Trumps decision to remove U.S. troops from harms way makes more sense.
View the twitter video at the source. Explains what was pulled.

Betcha 90% of Americans cannot identify Syria or current Kurd-held territory. Betcha they also don’t know there are two kinds of Kurds.
An important ping for your elucidation.
A fair point.
Though one shouldn’t conflate all the Kurds as of one bunch.
That is not woke at all. You know there are more than just male and female Kurds. There are the ones who identify as goats, as camels, etc...
Betcha they also dont know there are two kinds of Kurds.<<<
Kurds and Whey?..I remember Lil Miss Muffet mentioning that yrs ago..../s
Schumer was whining about when Pres. Trump at their meeting today pointed out that some of the Kurds the Dims wanted to save were communist terrorists and others were islamists. I think that’s when Pelosi lost it.
Some things escape the grasp of third rate politicians living first rate lives being bribed, dumb, and angry. And is there anyone in the ruling elite class in D.C. who’s kid isn’t on the board of collapsed Soviet energy trading companies?
LOL....he broke her.
Yep. There are Iraqi Kurds who are Muslim and mostly relatively sane. There are Turkish Kurds who are also Muslim and are mostly sane but with a large number of insane Maoist terrorists and some just plain insane Muslim terrorists. Then there are Syrian Kurds who are mostly mercenary, Muslim, Maoist and a large number are insane terrorists. There are a smattering of Kurds in the rest of the ME but their numbers arn’t enough to cause problems. (Iranian Kurds are an unknown Qty since to compare anyone to Iranians makes them look sane in comparison)
It's not Turkish, Kurdish, or Afghan illegal aliens raping, credit-stealing, DUI-killing and MS-13 butchering across America. Defend OUR borders, not Syria's!
Above is an interesting article about the history of the Kurds. In some treaty in 1923 they were supposed to be given there own country after Britain and France(?) left the area - but that didn’t happen.
Ever since, they have gone to, and been used by, whomever might be able to help them have some autonomy. Israel and the Shah against the King of Iran at the time. Then against Iraq when Saddam first gained power, now against ISIS, etc.
The Kurds have been used as deep state mercenaries for a very long time.
T hope Trump supporters don’t try to demonize the Kurds. Our soldiers speak highly of the ones they worked with.
After all the fact sd Trump did NOT abandon them to the Turks, as the media scream, but to the Syrians. Who have stepped up to defend them.
There is a reason we can get out of Syria now. Us pulling out turned into a Mexican standoff between our enemies with us out of theater. No power vacuums to be filled by unknown evil quantities. Erdogan is left with his proverbial pecker in his hand given Syria (armor), Russia (air cover), and the Kurds (infantry) stand there against him and the EU and USA are cutting him off. Iran loses their land bridge to Hez-Ebola. The Kurds have to play nice with Syria or they will get slaughtered by Turks. A very nice Mexican standoff with out us in the middle.
Give POTUS some time to work his magic in Afghanistan. He has been beating the Taliban and it’s leadership silly after they pulled that for political advantage attack/killing pre scheduled talks. They will not doubt his word next time.
As far as troops in Saudi, the Saudis are literally incompetent. They will pay big bucks for a large base there and have a well located safe base of operations if it ever comes to it in the ME would be my guess.
Iraq... no clue as to a plan but I am sure there is one.
In Syria there may be great individual Kurds, there may be great groups of Kurds but as a whole they are as much snakes as any of their neighbors. Syrians - Snakes. Turks - Snakes. Iranians - Snakes. It is a sand pit of sand vipers.
Small Kurd and large Kurd.
The PKK has always presented problems
