"We CANNOT abandon them" - ex-gov Huckabee

I generally support @POTUS on foreign policy & don't want
our troops fighting other nations' wars, but a HUGE mistake
to abandon Kurds. They've never asked us to do THEIR
fighting-just give them tools to defend themselves. They have
been faithful allies. We CANNOT abandon them.






Well well

5. He's basically shooting thousands of Kurds

Itís just on a different street.

This could very well get the republics to turn on him. It basically says that the US can no longer be trusted by their allies.
And whatís Turkey gonna do with all those ISIS fighters and families?
Kill them, too?
This is truly one of Murkaís darkest days.

3. Well, Huck, your glorious, insane leader says differently.

Donald J. Trump

✔@realDonaldTrump

As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (Iíve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over..

7. Sorry Suckabee, but your stable genius pal thinks the Kurds are a bunch of lousy takers

See, there are these pesky things called CONSEQUENCES when you patronize a treasonous narcissistic grifter.

Allies, norms and democracy itself become murky concepts that are only enforced when dear leader feels it's in his own best interest.

But hey, welcome to reality! Make yourself comfortable and have a good look around, then decide if this guy is really someone you want to keep defending.

10. Good grief

That sounds good and everything Huck, but why not question why the hell he would even do this? These fucks would be calling Obama a terrorist and everything else under the sun, but Trump is clearly "following orders" and trying to line his pockets and they wont even call out his clear reason behind this? The con man is clearly bargaining our foreign policy with his potential profits and doing what is in the best interest for Russia. For.Fuck's.Sake.

15. WTF does he mean by

"Iíve done before!"?

The idiocy about his "great wisdom" is bad enough but WTAF??

Here's a good book title (surprised it hasn't been used yet):

"The Madness of Donald Trump"

16. Hey look - here's Pat Robertson chiming in:

Pat Robertson is "appalled" by Trump's decision
to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria: "The
President of the United States is in great danger
of losing the mandate of Heaven if he permits this
to happen."

17. Sen. John Cornyn hopes the WH has thought this through:

Letís hope so. It isnít in Turkeyís interest to unleash ISIS
detainees. POTUSís advisors need to make sure the WH has
thought this through and examined all possible consequences.
