Thread: (Speakers Corner) Trump pulling out of Syria!

  1. #1

    Default (Speakers Corner) Trump pulling out of Syria!

    You know with all the dumb things Trump and the Republican Congress people do on a weekly basis. I'm sorta just going to accept most of it because we are at the half way point of Trumps Presidency. (plus the Democrats are going to control the House) So Trump can't do as much damage as he could before. (but he's still trying) With the exception of his foreign policy decisions, he can still do a lot of damage there. Pulling out of Syria and a 50% reduction of troops in Afghanistan are both huge mistakes!

    Trump's policy of pulling out of Afghanistan without a diplomatic solution is insane! As soon as we leave the crazy's come back and you've got another safe haven for terrorists operations to come from. With him pulling 50% of our troops out of Afghanistan and trying to negotiate with the Taliban at the same time is just crazy. What incentive do they have to negotiate in good faith? We just pulled 50% of our troops out without any concession from the other side! They can just wait us out and get everything they want and give up nothing in return.

    In Syria he made an even bigger military blunder. We've got Isis on the run! To pull out now is equally an insane decision from our Commander in Chief. We've got the best working military situation possible with our allies the Kurds. We supply the weapons and the training and the air support but the ground fighting is done by the Kurds. Their the ones who got the most dangerous job of kicking down the doors and shooting those MF'S at close range.

    If the worst case scenarios happens. The Turks move against the Kurds and eliminates them as a fighting force. Then Isis re appears, forcing the US military to go back into Syria, this time against Isis alone on the ground. (which would then amount to more US causality's) Defense Secretary Mathis quit his cabinet position in protest over these terrible decisions. Just as I'm writing this, Trump sped up Mathis leaving from the end of Feb to the first of January. (the country is now a whole less safer with Mathis leaving)

    I'll leave you with this last little tid bit.

    When Trump was on the campaign trail to becoming President. He accused then President Obama as being the creator of Isis. (meaning his policy's made Isis come to being) Now Isis is all but contained, if it reappears by Trumps own logic. He now is the re inventory of Isis, following the logic of "if you broke it, you now own it!"

    This is another example of Twittler making ill-advised policy by tweet. I am a big believer in peaceful actions, but these troop withdrawals without negotiation could backfire as you mention. There is a process to it in order for it to be successfully done.

    You'd think Putin's Puppet would go with the "America First!" angle, to placate his base on his reason for pulling out of Syria.

    The ole, "We do not need to be supporting any other nation with troops and money. 'MURICA FIRST! USA! USA! Lock her up!, etc."

    But to proclaim ISIS has been defeated? He should tour Syria in a victory parade, if he's that confident that we've defeated IS. Apparently geopolitics isn't one of his strong suites, which is good since we have an intelligent adult with General Mattis as our Secretary of Defense to be the voice of reason.

    Oh wait.

    The only problem is that the fallouts from this Twitter Decision, as is with any geopolitical conflict in volatile areas like the Middle East, will not occur tomorrow or the next year; conflicts and their eventual fallouts like this go on for decades and the Cheeto in Charge will be long gone, hopefully playing some golf at Club Fed in a matching orange jumpsuit, with all the 'good guys' he's hired that are soon headed to prison. Hopefully he's lost his Twitter ability or else he'll be as sure to blame the current situation on the current President.

    In any case, I nominate E Tucks as Secretary of Defense. Anybody that can kill a mountain lion with a .22 is suitable for the job at hand.
