We abandoned the Kurds, but we also ran away from the Turks.

The great American Military ran from the Turkish forces. Im sure the military feels good about that.

1. Our military isn't who's looking bad on this

No one doubts the might of our military. But I betcha every strongman in the world just sat straight up and is figuring out a way to thumb their nose at the US.

4. When you assert our military ran it conjures up images of cowardice.

Retreat is the correct word. It does not mean run. They are following orders.

7. Our commander in chief who is the head of the military

ran from the Turks, you can call it a retreat, sure. I say ran.

9. I wouldn't worry about it

I think we should have less of these wars and Assad himself isn't getting hurt in this war. Let Russia go ahead and stroll around our empty military bases. We should defend Kurds as well as Houthis though.

10. The US military didn't run from anything...

Their Commander In Thief ordered them out to cause a National Emergency, when ISIS hits your hometown. Will you run when their bombs explode at your mall?

11. It's not our military that gave the order to leave.

Listen, I absolutely loathe Trump and credit him with NOTHING. That said, I am firmly antiwar and opposed to our military presence in the ME, or anywhere else for that matter. Our soldiers shouldn't be anywhere overseas. Therefore, I have no problem with them being withdrawn there or anywhere.

12. Every active, inactive military and veteran should want to vomit about the cowardly

actions of Commander Bone Spurs.

Every member of Congress should be getting in line to impeach him over this alone, or wear his shame with him. The charge: Cowardice.
