Benedict Bonespurs has delivered what Russia wants in Syria - at zero cost - and 'Putin likely can't believe his luck'

Mod: Seems obvious, right? But there are far too many low information folks who can't see beyond their eye lids. Putin gets Syria, while all we get are Trump family plastic action figures and snuff videos.

Trump has delivered what Russia wants in Syria — at zero cost — and 'Putin likely can't believe his luck' (Business Insider link): Syrian President Bashar Assad — backed by his Russian patrons — moved on Monday to exploit the collapse of the US military presence in northeastern Syria by driving troops into the previously autonomous region managed by a Kurdish-dominated militia that had been under American protection for five years.

The unlikely sequence of events began earlier this month after President Donald Trump ended US opposition to a Turkish offensive into Syria during a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The call ended the US mission to fight the terrorist group ISIS and reduce Iranian and Russian influence in war-shattered Syria. And it left Tehran, Moscow, and Damascus with a huge victory that required little more than watching the American presence disappear on its own.

Russian President Vladimir "Putin likely can't believe his luck," said a Western military official from the anti-ISIS coalition who recently served in Syria. "A third of Syria was more or less free of ISIS, and its security was good without any involvement of the regime or Russia, and now because of the Turkish invasion and American pullout, this area is wide open to return to government control. "What was supposed to be a diplomatically complex issue that would have involved US and European military power suddenly got as simple as sending in tanks and units unopposed throughout the eastern third of Syria," said the official, who did not have permission to speak to the media.

Trump May Have Made Horrifying Syria Decision at Request of Putin (Buzzflash link): The carnage of the Kurds and the release of ISIS prisoners that Donald Trump has unleashed is being done in our name.

After all, the actions Trump has taken are in the name of the United States — and that is us. We are tarnished with his betrayal of an allied people, the resultant release of high-target ISIS terrorists, the bloodletting that is ongoing and the enabling of an increase in Russian influence in the region. Some might call it calculated treason. After all, the action sends a message to the nations of the world that the US cannot be a  trusted ally while also endangering lives across the planet and inflaming conflict in the Middle East with the re-activation of ISIS butchers.

Trump, as usual, has been all over the map in trying to explain a decision that profoundly undercuts US national interests and security.

He has implied that the Kurds were not worth protecting because they had not fought at “Normandy.” That made little sense because there was and is no Kurdish nation to have been an ally. Furthermore, many Kurds did fight as individuals with ally units. Of course, it goes without saying again that someone who never fought on "our side" in any military capacity is Donald “Bone Spurs” Trump, his nepotistic children, Donald Trump's father and basically his entire family.

Chickenhawks one and all, although his sons like to shoot captive game. What a bunch of craven and treasonous grifters.

Mod: As always there is much more available, and at all of the links.

Nancy Pelosi and Lindsey Graham join forces to ‘overturn Trump’s dangerous decision in Syria immediately’ (Raw Power link): This Monday morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced that she and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) have agreed to a “bipartisan, bicameral joint resolution to overturn the President’s dangerous decision in Syria immediately. “Pleased to have a conversation with Senator @LindseyGrahamSC this morning,” Pelosi tweeted. “Our first order of business was to agree that we must have a bipartisan, bicameral joint resolution to overturn the President’s dangerous decision in Syria immediately.”

In a series of tweets within an hour of Pelosi’s tweet, Graham confirmed the announcement, writing that he will be “working across party lines in a bicameral fashion to draft sanctions and move quickly, appreciating President Trump’s willingness to work with the Congress.”

“The Speaker indicated to me that time was of the essence,” Graham added. The announcement comes as a growing chorus of Republicans are joining Democrats in condemning Trump’s decision to withdraw a contingent of US troops from northeast Syria, green lighting Turkey’s invasion of the region.

    3. Sure, do whatever you want. Who cares? But just between us kids, if you need facebook to stay in touch with your friends and family, maybe you all aren't really all that close.

  2. White House ‘frantic’ after Democrats tap a ‘gusher’ of information from former Trump Russia aide Hill: Axios

    “House Democrats tell us that every witness who has appeared before them has bolstered their case against President Trump and they say there’s very little contradiction in the testimony,” Allen relayed. “House Democrats are now going for the Pentagon — we’ve seen this reach into the State Department and the intelligence community.”

    Asked how the White House is reacting to the details of Hill’s testimony, Allen said the White House is “frantic” and there is infighting over how to push back.

  4. Syria is complex, the population even marry with first cousins, brothers and sisters inorder to keep the family dowry. The Middle East has always had conflict, the USA just poured billions into the area for upgrades that would have gone on forever; build, blow-up ectera.
    War mongers like Maddox and Graham would argue remain at the expense of the United States, President Trump ran his campain on getting all soldiers back to their homes and families; kinda sounds like how Democrats use to sound.
    President Obama gave Russia Crimea and Hillary Clinton played footsies with Assad; so no hypocrisy now on "your" fake concern of world politics.

    1. A sad and pathetic little story concocted by someone who wants to defend the Trump enabled genocide being enacted against a loyal ally because it is embarrassing to the fat lying president. Many of the things you are saying here are not only untrue, they are blatantly racist.

    3. You know 5:56, the irony is the Republicans in the Senate will not impeach Trump over his Ukraine treason. But Syria could influence them to vote for impeachment. No amount of lying t=from the Tea Nut Gallery will be able to explain away that.

  6. "Benedict Bonespurs" (djt) delivered Putin his birthday present. On Putin's birthday the withdraw started and the innocent killing began. Another day to live in infamy in USA history, thanks to the orange faced clown living at 1600 Pennsylvanian Ave Washington D.C..

  7. Poster 5:56 AM must be confused, it's not Syrian they are posting about it's the Communist-republican-nazis they are referring to as being pedophile inter-breeders with family's and cousins. Then again the KKK, white brother and sisterhood like to do the same-thing? Has anyone noticed how inter-breed (djt) and his family lines look disturbingly strange in appearance too?

  8. Crooked trump:

    At the halfway mark of President Donald Trump’s first term, his administration has hired a lobbyist for every 14 political appointments made, welcoming a total of 281 lobbyists on board, a ProPublica and Columbia Journalism Investigations analysis shows.

    With a combination of weakened rules and loose enforcement easing the transition to government and back to K Street, Trump’s swamp is anything but drained. The number of lobbyists who have served in government jobs is four times more than the Obama administration had six years into office. And former lobbyists serving Trump are often involved in regulating the industries they worked for.

  13. News now reports Russian troops entering Syria. What is going to happen now with the Pelosi-Graham resolution to send American troops back ? What kind of military confrontation with Russia are we now looking at ? And the Kurds are not going to be looking for protection from American troops.....

    2. Russia didn’t just enter Syria. Russian forces now occupy abandoned American bases in Syria.

      Anybody tired of all the winning Trump promised? Or did he really mean we’d be tired of all the winning Putin is doing with Trump’s help.

  14. No luck involved. Putin and his operatives orchestrated this using Trump and his ego starting years ago. KGB = very smart and very, very evil people.Putin has Americans fighting each other while he continues his march toward world domination. Is Putin really that smart or are many Americans just extremely stupid? Trump is owned by Putin. At this moment Russian trolls are busy responding to posts from Americans like this one. Trump is encouraging them, not stopping them from doing this. What is the point of spending most of our tax money on military defense when we are being destroyed from within by a relatively inexpensive Russian operation?
