Trump's decision to abandon Kurds helps the following:
Ask every Republican and Trump supporter to defend it on air.
This President’s decision to abandon our Kurdish allies in Northern Syria is ultimately a victory for Assad, Russia, Iran, and ISIS. The Administration must immediately reconsider withdrawing the few remaining U.S. troops who are playing a vital peacekeeping role.
Trump’s move will not put an end to endless wars. What it *will* do is reward Russia, Iran, and ISIS.
He’s not leading us toward peace. He’s showing the world that his political interests are more important than reliable leadership and keeping our commitments to our allies. https://t.co/WEcy2cUDwv
Turkey is killing Kurds. Right now. Our allies in the fight against ISIS are dying. Because Trump - the unethical, stupid, delusional, megalomaniac - decided without input it was a neat idea to leave them at Turkey's mercy.
The peace zone is gone. Here come Iran and Russia.
Bottom line: Trump tonight after one call with a foreign leader provided a gift to Russia, Iran, and ISIS. FWIW, I warned of this here in @ForeignAffairs
— and recommended alternatives given the hard realities on the ground and in this White House. https://t.co/QHYzI7dgEi
Trump’s former ISIS envoy excoriates his Syria decision. Brett McGurk, who resigned along with Mattis, says Trump "blusters and then leaves our allies exposed when adversaries call," describes Trump's actions in Syria as a “gift to Russia, Iran, and ISIS.”
This isn't hard – not supporting our longtime allies the Kurds means we are surrendering the Middle East to Iran, Russia and Turkey and it tells our friends that an alliance with America means nothing. Be nice with nice guys and tough with tough guys not the other way around.
Today, October 7th, is Putin's birthday and since Trump can't give him Ukraine, he gave him northern Syria.
Hope and expect sanctions against Turkey – if necessary – would be veto-proof.
This decision to abandon our Kurdish allies and turn Syria over to Russia, Iran, & Turkey will put every radical Islamist on steroids. Shot in the arm to the bad guys. Devastating for the good guys.
By abandoning the Kurds we have sent the most dangerous signal possible – America is an unreliable ally and it’s just a matter of time before China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea act out in dangerous ways.
Our allies, Kurdish families, who helped us fight ISIS, are now being slaughtered.
A madman let this happen.
ISIS is on verge of growing.
Iran and Russia ready to rush in.
won't do the right thing because they're worried about their fucking jobs.
El régimen no apresará a Guaidó, porque es parte del trato.
Guaidó no derrocará la dictadura, porque es parte del trato.
Todos irán juntos a elecciones, porque es parte del trato.
Y amorochaitos se repartirán la torta, porque es parte del trato.
Business is business.
Tres ladrones y asesinos robaron una joyería y mataron a su dueño en Iran, en menos de 15 días los atraparon y los colgaron frente a la tienda que asaltaron:
N. Korea said stop military exercises, we did.
Saudi Arabia said take care of Iran, we sent troops to Saudi Arabia.
Turkey said get out of Syria, we are.
WHO THE HELL IS RUNNING THIS COUNTRY?
Fourth: It was the Trump administration that dramatically expanded the Syria mission in 2018 beyond ISIS to include staying on the ground until Iran left Syria and the civil war was resolved (meaning many years). Another example of maximalist objectives for a minimalist POTUS.
#Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Russia and their other allies are the ones that actually defeated ISIS while you cheered on a fake “revolution” that empowered extremists who burned churches, wiped out entire tribes and put minority women in cages.
Sit down. https://t.co/Z7CkcFDSuM
EE.UU. se retira de Siria, Turquía y Rusia ganan, así como ganaron ya la alianza con Irán, el actor más fuerte del Medio Oriente. América Latina ya no es su zona de exclusión y la relación con Alemania, dueña del Euro, seguirá siendo de tú a tú. Fin de la superpotencia.
Third Islamic Front? The new Turkey-Pakistan-Malaysia led group wants to represent Islam globally. Competing with the Saudi v/s Iran game-board. Pls comment with your views on implications for India.
Remember when we almost went to war with Iran... last week.
While #Iran was combating ISIS and Al-Qaeda terrorists alongside the soldiers of #Syria, #Lebanon and #Iraq, you and your buddy John McCain were running guns to those very same jihadists and campaigning to expand the regime change war on their behalf.

Like when Obama released $150 to Iran.
And shipped blankets to Kiev after Russia invaded.
Grow up. https://t.co/vbb5UoWBgt
Trump's Syrian decision is a betrayal not only of our allies, the Kurds, but American values. It is a dream come true for Iran, the Turks, and particularly the Russians. And provides evidence for Putin's narrative that the U.S. is faithless to its allies. Well done, Mr. President
"Look closely, using lethal force by the Iran-backed militias in #Iraq against protesters is clear."

doesn't that worth investigation?
Bloqueadas todos los puentes y vías que conectan Gye con otros cantones. Estamos sitiados, encerrados protegiendo a un jumento inepto. Cómo irán mañana los guayacos a camellar a Sambo, cómo llegarán miles de ecuatorianos de otros cantones a Gye para trabajar?
Israel wants us in Syria as a buffer. Iran wants us in Syria as a target. Without us there, we have much more leverage over both these nations.
October 7 - Arak, western #Iran
Anti-riot units attack Azarab factory employees holding a protest rally demanding their delayed paychecks & clarification of the stockholders' limbo status.
What integrity and loyalty are you imagining? The US has screwed the Kurds repeatedly over the decades to advance its own agenda. Washington had no issue when Saddam used chemical weapons against them in the 80s because it was against Iran. https://t.co/yJzCYXzBNA

Great send our troops home now and while you're at it bring them home from Afghanistan too. Acknowledge that we armed and funded Al-Qaeda/ISIS in Syria which triggered the "civil war" and that Russia & Iran had to go in and clean up OUR mess.
