Genocide Don: Trump’s support for Erdogan’s plans in Syria has green-lit a Turkish genocide of the Kurds

Mod: As we should all know by now, the Turks are old hands at genocide. Trump just cut them loose for another round, and he couldn't care less.

Trump’s support for Erdogan’s plans in Syria has green-lit a Turkish genocide of the Kurds (Euro News.com link): When the Turks are “just passing through” a territory, sometimes they stay 500 years. Just ask the Bulgarians, who spent 500 years under violent Ottoman rule. And let’s not forget the Turkish genocide against the Armenians in the First World War that the Turkish state continues to vehemently deny to this day.

That’s why when I heard the news that US president Donald Trump had let Turkey’s Erdogan enter the Kurdish parts of northern Syria, I was deeply concerned. This is genuinely bad news.

The decision is an American betrayal of the Kurds who carried the battle against Islamic State on their shoulders. As close American allies (until recently) in the fight against this tumor, the Kurds don’t deserve this, particularly after the Kurds dismantled their defenses on the border with Turkey to redirect all forces to the battle with IS fighters under the promise that the Kurds would be protected by the US against possible Turkish attacks. That's why the decision leaves Kurdish commanders absolutely puzzled at the moment.

By all means, what Erdogan has planned will not be a peaceful resettlement of Syrians “going back home.” Under the pretext of resettling refugees back in Syria – but note, in the northern Kurdish territories – Erdogan’s forces are expected to wipe out chunks of the Kurdish population, fighters and civilians alike.

What has caused this 180-degree U-turn - and if this abrupt decision is related to Trump’s impeachment inquiry - is anybody’s guess at this point. A US withdrawal has certainly been in the cards but has so far been resisted up - until now. So, the question remains about what Turkey offered Trump at this point, in the middle of heated impeachment calls.

The US is sending allies across the Middle East – and elsewhere in the world – the wrong message, and it is clear to all “we will use you until you’ve done your part and then we will throw you at the wolves.” This harms American credibility in the Middle East and its global leadership at large.

Another message being read from this decision is that US foreign policy can change overnight, on a whim. It is my prediction that we are witnessing the beginning of a Turkish genocide on the Kurds. Trump will be, in part, to blame. That’s just not how you do foreign policy.

  1. The Republicans were strongly against this. Everyone in the administration (except Pence that mouse) told him it was absolutely the wrong thing to do. Lindsey Graham and Moscow Mitch were against it. But trump, in his tiny mind, having no idea what he is doing and listening only to fox news and Rush Limbaugh, has decided to destroy (again) something that was working (Education? wrecked it. Health care? wrecked it? Immigration? wrecked it. Balance of power? wrecked it. I can't think of one think he has touched that was not broken but now is. Let's talk about taxes...

  2. The Turks have already committed a genocide, about 100 years ago against the Armenians.

  3. 'Tell the truth ... for a change': ex-President Carter's advice to Trump

    Former Democratic U.S. President Jimmy Carter on Tuesday called on President Donald Trump to cooperate with Congress’ impeachment inquiry, saying his refusal to comply with lawmakers’ requests has left Americans grappling for answers.

    The Republican leader faces allegations he abused his office by pushing Ukraine to investigate his political rival Joe Biden. Earlier on Tuesday, the Trump administration blocked a key witness from appearing before three House committees, prompting a subpoena.

    “Tell the truth, I think, for a change,” Carter told MSNBC when asked what advice he would give Trump.

  13. The minute (djt) is found guilty and impeached, all his & the crime family worldly holdings will be sucked up by each respective country they are held in or reside in. That means real property and buildings & business, any bank accounts etc. will become the local government property. This will suck the value out of the property until court proceeding can be completed that could take years as each country has to investigate each and every legal count against them all. A forfeiture can happen if those crime family and associates do not show up in that country court room to answer all the charges. Then the respective country can take it all by default. Happy New Year criminal (djt) family's.

  18. Russian Operative Said ‘We Made America Great’ After Trump’s Win

    Kremlin-directed operatives opened champagne when Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016, according to a communication disclosed in a new Senate Intelligence Committee report outlining Russia’s sweeping social media efforts to help him win.

    “We uncorked a tiny bottle of champagne ... took one gulp each and looked into each other’s eyes .... We uttered almost in unison: ‘We made America great,’” one operative at the St. Petersburg-based Internet Research Agency said in the message obtained by the Republican-led committee.

    The long-pending report by the Intelligence panel concluded that Russia directed an aggressive social media campaign to hurt Democrat Hillary Clinton and help Trump in the 2016 presidential election and warns similar efforts to interfere in U.S. politics are still under way. It was a bipartisan endorsement of the finding made by U.S. intelligence agencies and often questioned by Trump.

    The report, two years in the making, found that the Internet Research Agency “was overtly and almost invariably supportive of then-candidate Trump to the detriment of Secretary Clinton’s campaign.” As part of that effort, it targeted African-Americans through social media more than any other group.

    Chairman Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican, said the Russian interference campaign hasn’t ended and other adversaries are engaged in similar attacks.

  19. As long as members of Congress support this President, they share the stain of the soon to be slaughtered Kurds by the Turkish Invasion. Maybe one of his supporters can tell us, just what is gained by allowing Turks to invade Syria ? We now have a squatter in the White House.. Today's distractions like the Syrian bloodbath to take attention off his Impeachment.

Hoping to secure a place for themselves to run an hide also. Such a sad ending & fate of the Republican, GOP and RNC party in 2019.

  32. Donald Trump is a Russian agent?

    His every pronouncement and action is for Russia and its leader.

    It is hard to think of anything that he has done that was not done for Russia's benefit.

    From his attacks on NATO to his withdrawal from Syria, it was for Russia. From his attacks on our intelligence agencies to his unprecedented divisive tactics on our system of government, it is for Russia.

    His attacks upon the German, British, and French leaders helped Russia.

    The "deals" he was looking to make in Ukraine was to help Russia take control of the Ukraine. His delay in releasing funds until he could get certain promises from the new Ukraine leader was to help Russia consolidate its positions.

    What does Russia have on him? What is he trying to hide?
