    Hundreds of Islamic State supporters have escaped during the chaos ensuing from Turkey's incursion into Syria.

    Yes, but thousands of Kurdish and Christian civilians in Northern Syria are being bombed and shelled by Turkish forces. Kind of win/win for ISIS.

    Turkish state-backed media hails a “successful operation” to “neutralize” an unarmed 35-year old woman working to unite Arabs, Christians, and Kurds in NE Syria. Ms. Hevrin Khalef was reportedly dragged from a vehicle and shot to death. That’s a war crime. https://twitter.com/yenisafak/status/1183028907693477888?s=21 …





    There are also reports that worse than that happened to her. It's hard to know what information is accurate, but there's no doubt that Trump has blood on his hands. Civilians, including women and children, Kurdish fighters who were our allies against ISIS are dead because he had a phone call with Erdogan. All you Trump sycophants: whose endgame is being played?

    Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

    And it was a casual gift to Erdogan, because he was throwing a hissy fit over Trump not meeting with him. Thousands of Christians are in the path of Erdogan's military offensive, but Trump doesn't give a flip about them.

    In all fairness, he probably didn't think about the death and destruction he was bringing on them. But now that it's underway, his huge and delicate ego won't let him fix the error.

    It's just a few thousand innocent people, after all.

    Always excellent analysis from Marcy Wheeler (emptywheel)

    WHY IT MATTERED (AND STILL MATTERS) THAT FLYNN CONTINUED TO HIDE HIS TRUE RELATIONSHIP WITH TURKEY

    The guy who managed the first steps of the process that led to Trump announcing a withdrawal of troops from Syria yesterday was hiding secret ties to both Russia and Turkey when that process started. That’s one of the reasons why it matters that Mike Flynn lied about his relationship with Turkey for so long. It means that both Russia and Turkey have always known Flynn and Trump were vulnerable because they were hiding lies about their ties with those countries.

    Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it

    What President Trump Does NOT Want to Say to the Mother of a Dead American Soldier
    Thomas DiLorenzo


    “Your son was a hero who died defending the Kurds from all enemies, domestic and foreign. He died fighting over there so that no young relative of a John Bolton or a Lindsay Graham or a Meghan McCain would have to do it instead.”
    The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

    Let's look at just how corrupt the Democrat's professed outrage is over Trump getting us out of Syria.

    The title of this article which I am about to quote from is: Democrats Denounce President Trump For Ending Syrian War They Never Authorized….

    Think about this. They are screaming at Trump for getting out of a war which not only did Democrats not authorize, neither did Republicans. In other words, Congress never authorized any kind of war in Syria, and that is a Constitutional requirement for getting the US into a war. In other words, they are angry because Trump is doing the right thing.

    The level of political nonsense today from the House of Representatives is off-the-charts. Speaker Pelosi calls a resolution to the House floor to denounce President Trump for removing 28 troops from a foreign war never authorized by the same House.
    If Pelosi wants to have a war with Syria, then declare one. Or, Pelosi could call a resolution to the House floor to condemn Turkish President Erdogan for invading Syria. Instead, the House votes to denounce President Trump for getting our military out of the way. The Democrats are the party of war, and a whole bunch of republicans are supporting them. Why? Simply, because war is a big business from K-Street.
    Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Steny Hoyer walk out of a meeting with President Trump because, according to them, the president called the speaker a “third-rate politician”. Speaker Pelosi replied “I wish you were a politician”…. How typical is that?
    Interesting to think about.
    Speaker Pelosi brings a resolution to the floor to denounce President Trump for removing 28 U.S. troops from Syria.

    That's odd… Show me the House vote to authorize moving troops into Syria.

    The House did not vote to authorize Obama putting troops in Syria, but the House did vote to denounce Trump for removing them?
    So, Pelosi, Schumer, and Hoyer walk out because Trump said the truth. And the comeback was that Trump isn't a politician? Really? Why else does she think he got elected? The majority of US citizens are sick to death of politicians and all their lying and corruption. The reason Pelosi is a third rate politician is because she doesn't follow the rules. Because she is lawless and supports lawlessness. Think about it. She, and her buddies, just condemned lawful behavior by Trump and she acted lawlessly when Obama started the mess in Syria without authorization, and she did nothing about it. She supported the lawless behavior.
