I thought you purportedly were the smart guy in this bunch. The “binary choice,” my patootie.
For 50+ years the GOP kleptocracy has manipulated the DoD, and America, with this tripe. The Montagnards, Assad’s daddy, Saddam and OBL were “useful” blood-thirsty free-dumb fighters for Uncle Sugar – until they were Neander-Con casualties of war. Thanks to Ronald Ray-Guns, we are the World Police.
“See What You Get When You Think With Your Dick” Cheney, and Donald Rums-Failed (along with their good buddies, **The John’s** – Bolt-On and Poindexter) embraced this canard. You. Can’t. Have. It. Both. Ways.
Spew crapola about “stop the terrorists overseas,” and then complain about the role of the global police? While doubling (tripling?) the global DoD/Spook footprint over the last 20 years, expanding the Pentagon base budget, while ‘slushing’ Overseas Contingency Operations
Give me a break. Protect the dang Peshmerga and the Kurds.

The binary choice is -
1) boots on the ground expending blood and treasure forever
2) abandon the Kurds to their fate
It is painfully obvious that #2 was inevitable. The only thing left to us is to create a special immigrant visa class for Kurds so they can come live in Minneapolis and fight Somalis for gang turf
The Kurds, if they are lucky, will just wind up abused and subjugated like the Montagnards
Like all other things, only a Trump could fvxk the Kurds. Under any other President we’d still be over there in full force. And a certain group of loud voices would be decrying our presence there and not/not mourning the potential fate of the Kurds.
Just remind yourselves that Kurds would be mostly GOP voters if they were here and you’ll feel better about it
