Fuck Trump.
Agreed

(Since I know you actually aren’t a hypocrite on the Kurds)

That’s exactly along the lines of what I was thinking and why we still have Hillary to blame for Trump. :lol:

Hillary Clinton is far more ethical than Trump is.

You are no better than Trump. You are a wannabe Project for the New American Century (PNAC) hack, turning tail, running away, with hollow platitudes and false-flag misdirection.

What’s next for you? Saudi boot-licking in a PNAC proxy war? Been there – doing that.

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.
You obviously don’t follow me much. I suggest some catch-up remedial reading. Ask Jelly how to do it - he’s misread every post I’ve ever made about 5 times. Which is what you’ve done here.

I’m pointing out that the sudden sympathy for the Kurds (and now retroactively for the Montagnards!) is basically a feckless cunt litmus test

Let’s stop pretending we give a damn about the Kurds and admit that we just don’t like who’s abandoning them

Hey look... another snark ass trying to get ahead of the obvious dichotomy

Save it, Grandpaw

You already mislabeled me for all to see. I’m sorry that I had to tweak you but it is what it is

BTW - when did you live with the Kurds? I must have missed you there

Stop being a pretend advocate for the Peshmerga. They’d eat your old cunt lunch anyway

BTW:::: how do you feel about the PKK? (Yes this is a trap... take your time)

UNI88 is hardly a Trump ass-licker. Nor is AZ. They just recognize that it’s possible to separate the man from his policies, some of which are good. Same as Nixon. You don’t have that gift. Just keep on rimming the Hildabeast, Warren, and the rest of that sorry lot.

There are a lot of ingredients in this Turkey-Kurd soup. And when you stack up the arguments for each side of Trump's order, I'm not so sure he didn't make the right move.
