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."

Hatred is a terrible curse.
The uberRINO is ticked that once again, Trump has pulled the rug from ball-less pathetic entities such as his RINOness.
He wants US troops killed for no purpose whatsoever.
I am so ashamed that I voted for Romney to be POTUS. What a disaster that would have been. O well!! hind-sight is 20/20 - so they say!!
Mitt “Manly” Romney doesn’t have an honorable bone in his body. He wouldn’t EVER go, but he wants others to.
Trump is SOOOOOOOOO right! We have no national interest there and we have never promised the Kurds our protection. Let Mitt volunteer to go. Or let him introduce a bill to declare war on Turkey.
Hey Romney, Go have lunch with Elijah Cummings you rancid POS
Bloodstain? Mitt must be referring to his own kotex pad.
