    The best summary and explanation you will see or hear on the president's decision to withdraw some troops from Syria. A necessary adjunct to all the popular media you have been watching or listening to on the subject. There is a lot of deception out there, some of it intentional as all freepers know. Do not be dismayed by events, and here's why.

    The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which is designated as a terrorist group by both the U.S. and Turkey, penned an open letter in English rebuking President Trump's comparison of the group to ISIS amid a fight between Kurds and Turkish forces in northern Syria. The PKK said in Friday's letter that it “refused comparisons” to ISIS after Trump said at a press conference on Wednesday that the Kurds were “no angels” and that the PKK is likely “more of a terrorist threat” than ISIS. “We refuse comparisons being made between our movement and the inhumane thugs of ISIS,” the PKK’s...

    White House senior adviser Jared Kushner will lead a US delegation to Israel at the end of the month to meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chairman Benny Gantz, a senior administration official said on Thursday. Kushner has been leading President Donald Trump's effort to develop a peace plan for Israelis and Palestinians. After proposing a $60 billion aid package for the region last summer, he has yet to unveil a proposed political plan that gets at the thorniest issues in the decades-old conflict, with Netanyahu struggling to form a governing coalition. The official, speaking on condition...

    THERE are certain actions which are borne out of power politics, while others emerge from ideological fixations. Still yet, some are combinations thereof. Said duality is the driving force behind Chancellor Merkel’s rule – her leadership, for almost 15 years, reflects as much. Not only that, as the head of Germany, the 4th largest economy in the world, the heft she wields across Europe (and beyond) is enormous. SO much so, even socialist-leaning and globalist-driven Zuckerberg (in total control of Facebook, the largest social media site on the planet and deemed the world’s most dangerous censor – who is more...

    SNIP The Trump administration has sanctioned three Turkish ministries and two senior officials (per the agreement, those sanctions will be lifted once the Turks end their operation). France, Germany, Finland and the Netherlands have suspended arms sales. The Pentagon is even evaluating plans for the removal of the 50 nuclear gravity bombs stationed at the Incirlik Air Base. However, the most significant idea discussed by members of Congress, commentators, and European officials was the termination of Turkey’s membership in NATO. Defense Secretary Mark Esper suggested the Turkish incursion against the Kurds in Syria could jeopardize its relations with other NATO...

    The United States and Turkey today announced an historic agreement putting an end to a week of hostilities in the border region of Syria: Turkey is implementing an immediate ceasefire. The two governments committed to safeguard religious and ethnic minorities. Both governments are increasing cooperation to help detain ISIS fighters. Relations between the United States and long-standing NATO ally Turkey have been bolstered. This agreement is the result of President Donald Trump’s forthright leadership over the past week and the successful negotiations in Ankara led by Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and National Security Advisor Robert...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday she was delivering a simple message to President Trump as she stood and departed a contentious White House meeting the previous day: "At that moment, I was probably saying, 'All roads lead to Putin.'" The picture of Pelosi standing opposite the president as she prepared to leave the Wednesday meeting quickly went viral, after Trump tweeted it out and Pelosi's office later made it the cover photo of her own Twitter account. In the picture, Pelosi is the only woman at the table, the only person standing opposite a seated row of men....

    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 ErdoÄŸan agreed to halt TurkeyÂ’s offensive in Syria for 120 hours in...

    The Still Report. ^ | Oct 17, 2019 | Bill Still
    Summary: Erdogan's "invasion" of Syria is not what the media is reporting. Turkey has 3.6 million refugees from the Syrian Civil War, and has prevented them from flooding Europe, causing severe economic hardship. This is the largest number of refugees held by any nation. If Erdogan can be believed, and he has been talking about this for a few years, this "invasion" is about creating 20 x 300 mile zone to create a zone to repatriate Syrian refugees. The Kurds are largely unaffected by Turkey's move. Turkey cannot hold millions of refugees forever. They can send them to Syria or...

    On Thursday at her weekly press briefing, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the American people were “not going to decide” if President Donald Trump should be impeached. When asked about the impeachment timeline, Pelosi said, “I keep saying to people, impeachment is about the truth and the Constitution of the United States. Any other issues that you have, disapproving of the way the president has dealt with Syria, whatever the subject is, reluctance, the cowardice to do something about gun violence, the cruelty of not wanting to help our Dreamers and transgender people, the denial about the climate crisis...

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,” the Utah Republican said on the floor of the Senate. “Given the initial details of the cease-fire agreement, the administration must also explain what America’s future role will be in the region. What happens now to the Kurds and why Turkey will...
