4. Trump is actually conforming to

the long standing international unspoken agreement that the Kurds will never have a state of their own and that it is always ok to sacrifice them for any reason.

16. Bull-Fucking-Shit!

You really believe that a President Clinton would give the "go ahead" for Turkey to slaughter the Kurds?

Stop trying to make excuses for this worthless piece of amphibian shit.

Your post is one of many I've seen today that basically says; "oh, well, sucks to be the Kurds"...

As if a different President or person would have done exactly what Dipshit Donnie is doing.

Fuck that. Your post is the absolute worst example of "bothsiderism" I've ever fucking seen, and is example number 135,674,789 of the reasons this ignorant fuckstick is in the oval office.

You should take it down.

21. Actually you might want to crack open a history book. It was George H.W. Bush that betrayed them.

Clinton maintained the no-fly zone status for Iraq, but the bulk of the slaughter was long over before Bill Clinton took office.

The Kurdish people have been repeatedly betrayed, blatantly and unapologetically, by the last three Republican presidents. The person you responded to just now with demands of removing the post, didn't specify Bill or 'both sides' at all.

39. a much more accurate take

Kurds have been used (when advantageous) and betrayed by all and sundry going back generations. Trump is of course the most faithless partner imaginable .. but the Kurds have had virtually NO faithful partners ..in a long and regrettable struggle. Hatred of Trump doesn't substitute for some understanding of the realities.

41. You mean 1991 and yes, that's actually the problem. They have been denied a nation of their own.

The Kurdish people have no single homeland at the moment. But one can identify them as an ethnic group, and observe how our nation treats them.

During the worst of the more recent Iraq war, we considered partitioning Iraq into Sunni, Shia, and Kurdish regions. Turkey in no uncertain terms, threatened to invade and destroy any attempt to create a Kurdish nation in any form. (And George W backed down.)

44. At least 4 different countries.

But please take a brief look at how we allowed Turkey to slaughter Kurds for decades, how we used and discarded the Iraqi Kurds twice, how we ignored the Iranian slaughter of the Kurds in the 70's when the Pahlevi gang was running Iran...

It is always important to consider poorly informed opinions on their merit.

You might want to research the sad history of the Kurdish people over the last 100 years. Or not.

46. I spent 30 years in the Navy and 5 as a civil servant

A lot of that time deployed to that region and hotspot.

I'm fully aware of the history of the Kurds, as I am with the history of the Palestinians.

There are difficult, but workable solutions that don't include giving Turkey, or Israel carte blanche to murder people.

The Kurds have been our allies in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

We shouldn't simply cut and run because "that's the way we've always done it".

Donít get me wrong. We have been far from perfect and have lots of blood on our hands. But this is the first time we have consciously sold out a valuable ally to sure genocide after they did all we asked them to do on our behalf.

43. Syria became all about defeating ISIS

To that end we joined forces with a genocidal dictator, and the Russians. The Kurds were useful .. but NEVER part of end game (to the extent there was one). Trump is at base level an isolationist. Doesn't believe the U.S. really has a place in this (or really any other) geopolitical situation.

27. Contacted my senator/representative

Among the many evil doings lately, this one stands out to me.

Special ops teams and US troops must be appalled by this news. McCain must be rolling in his grave.

I just contacted my congresspeople (GOP). The woman I spoke to at my GOP representative's DC office seemed surprised and taken aback by this development (she must not follow the news).

This will be seen as a green light to Erdogan to begin a genocide of the Kurds. "Better hurry and do it before President Trump is voted out or impeached!"
