Posted on 10/23/2019 9:15:27 AM PDT by Brown Deer
President Trump announced on Wednesday that conditions have been met between Turkey and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) for what he called a " permanent ceasefire" between the two sides and that the United States is lifting sanctions on Ankara that were implemented following the invasion of northern Syria.
Speaking at the White House, Trump said that while a "permanent ceasefire" will be tough to maintain in the volatile region, he hopes that it will last and end the conflict between Turkey and the Kurds.
"I do believe it will be permanent," he said. "This was an outcome created by us, the United States, and nobody else...we've done something very, very special"
Trump's comment follows an early morning tweet, where he said a safe zone along the Turkey-Syria border and as he faces strong bipartisan criticism for pulling back U.S. troops from northern Syria.

The deep state war machine will not be amused.
Great speech. If you didn’t see it, you ought to.
Democrats stand to lose millions in cronyism and nepotism, thus very outraged
Can’t wait to see what the spin will be. You know it’s coming. Can’t just report what happened after all
A Permanent Peace.
American Presidents have worked for hundreds of years to arrive at Permanent Peace, and President Trump builds that Peace in two weeks.
ATTENTION RINOs: BOOYAH! Now pull up yer big girl panties and SUPPORT THIS PRESIDENT. ATTENTION MITT ROMNEY: GET YER MAGIC UNDERROOS OUT OF A BUNCH AND SUPPORT PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP NOW OR GET THE HELL OUT OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
And already the RINOs and Never-Trump Pubs are blasting POTUS for pretty much everything he said. I was surprised, though, to see Rick Scott jump on the bash-Trump bandwagon. Then again, maybe Im not so shocked after all, given how poorly Senate Republicans have been behaving lately.
Too be reported soon. Real soon. Really. OK, not.
Great speech. If you didnt see it, you ought to.
I watched it and it was good. I was watching it while doing some work on my iPad. At one point during Trumps remarks something he said awakened Siri on my iPad and Siri asked what it could do for me. Got a laugh out of that but will be glad when SIRIa is out of the news.
Winning winning winning— so much fun 5-4 and now this!!
“The deep state war machine will not be amused”
It’s cool. We have a 2,000 mile long border of our own that we can deploy all the fun toys to.
Maybe after about 2-3 months of serious low level strafing by A-10s out of D-M and COIN attacks against narco guerillas operating on the border and the interior states of Sinaloa, Sonora and Chihuahua we can then have an announcement like today: only this time it will be about the US border being stabilized, not some obscure terrorcracy that’s 11,000 miles away.
Quid Pro Quo?
Cant wait to see what the spin will be. You know its coming. Cant just report what happened after all
I watched Andrea Mitchell on msnbc right after the speech.
The libs will go nuts..............
Zero chance this lasts through the weekend.
You're that optimistic, huh?
Democrats??? Why are you letting our leading RINOs like Lindsay and McConnell off the hook here. They have been on this like flies on camel dung.
