Trump Betrays the Kurds in Syria and Iraq

Updated on October 7, 2019

Allies Can No longer Trust Trump

As if the whole political situation with Trump's impeachment cannot get any worse, Trump continues to prove the American allies and his own party that he is a king and intends to make America insignificant again as a world power.

This time, his unilateral decision to remove 1000 American troops embedded with the Syrian Kurdish Army along the Turkish border at the behest of Turkey. For many, many months, the Turks have been itching to conduct their own offensive (with the approval of Russia and Iran) to eradicate their perceived arch enemy, the Kurds. The hatred between the two is over a century old, but Turkey allowed the US arm and train them to help defeat ISIS . Turkey was never happy with this, but America was their superior within NATO.

The Syrian Kurdish Army has been critical because they have been the ones responsible for the captured ISIS fighters totaling 2500 being held in camps near the Turk border. The Kurdish YPG lost about 11,000 during the fight against ISIS and Turkey may just go beyond the agreed 20 miles from the border to eradicate them. Turkey views the YPG as part of an insurgency group that has wanted the creation of a Kurdish State for the past 40 years. Now, Turkey has vowed to deal them a massive blow. It will be war again, between a NATO member and an ally!

The coming Turkish offensive will extend some 20 miles deep and 300 miles long and includes the Kurdish city of Qamishli of 250,000. Once the Kurds are removed from the border, Turkey plans to repopulate the two million Sunni Arab Syrians to this cleared border area. The UN has said that Trump's betrayal will cause a whole area to once again ignite. The YPG units along the border have vowed to resist the Turk aggression.

Biblical Implications

For those who follow the End Times events via the Book of Revelations can only be confirming what was predicated thousands of years ago. In brief, there will be an alliance of Russia, Turkey, and Iran (among others) that will one day descend upon Israel in a great battle. This is not the Armageddon, but it is just an early sign how close those times are now.

Trump has caused so much damage to the image of the USA in so many ways. But, the sum of it all, including this most recently, cowardly, betrayal of a former ally against ISIS, has not been well received by Republicans or Democrats. Trump is determined to get America out of Syria and he has said this. He has said that America will leave so that Russia and Turkey can deal with it! What a chicken-shit POTUS. Trump's actions in that region make it clear that no leader can trust what Trump states or that America will deter bad actors anymore. His plans to leave Afghanistan simply signal to the Taliban that after 18 years, America will give up.

While many of Trump's fervent believers think that Trump is working for God, they actually may have a point. Trump was elected so that America does become an insignificant force on the world stage and it will not come to defend Israel when the time comes. America is not mentioned in the Revelations because we are divided, weak, traumatized, and unwilling to fight for others. Trump unknowingly is confirming this by withdrawing America from many spots in the world into a weak, fetal-like position. World leaders that are bad actors know he just bluffs with military might, but when it is time to prove it, he backs down. That's the America in the End Times. No country will count on the USA.

The stage is being set

      “Spare me the nonsense on sanctions.

      People are being slaughtered RIGHT NOW.

      Bombs are dropping on children RIGHT NOW.

      Instead of drafting sanctions bills, Republicans should use their massive leverage over the President to get him to change course. RIGHT NOW.“

      As we suspected, Trump's wisdom to pull out of Syria is turning for the far worse with ISIS escapees, kurd executions, kurds making a deal with Russia for protection from the Turks and Trump threatening massive sanctions on Turkey.

      Oh yes, and that’s not hate. Hang the b*tch is God’s love.

      They always said “I don’t hate Obama, I hate his policies”

      But no one can hate trump’s policies, it must always be about hating him, cause we are too stupid to think about anything else.

      The snobbery is getting old. And also,

      The sadism. It’s the sadism. The amoral people with no conscience. A brain defect.

      How is it so powerful? Brainwashing. KGB style.

      “By turning the other cheek in Syria, Donald Trump has given tacit approval for the ethnic cleansing of our most important allies in the region.

      The coverage is heartbreaking and infuriating. This is a gift to Putin.”

      True? Or not?

      He has also betrayed the USA. Big time. And forever.

      What Trump has done will be remembered for long as an act of betrayel. Now the people around the world know that America can never be trusted. Thats a lot if damage to American image but the man is not bothered.

      Trump is a stone cold traitor. What are they waiting for? GET HIM OUT

      “U.S. forces say Turkey was deliberately ‘bracketing’ American troops with artillery fire in Syria.

      That’s not something we ever would have done to a partner force," Army officer says.”

      "The U.S. ambassador to the European Union, Gordon Sondland, intends to tell Congress this week that the content of a text message he wrote denying a quid pro quo with Ukraine was relayed to him directly by President Trump in a phone call."

      Thank you. It was a crime. Trump committed it. He tried to cover it up. One of many crimes.

      Now comes the smear campaign against Sondland.

      Like clockwork. Then the defense of poor Donald he’s just being picked on cause they hate him.

      *sigh*. It gets old.

      Trump is just out for himself and biz. Maybe he will just resign when faced with the reality should it all go against him.

      It is really too bad that Sanders had to have the heart attack, a better candidate would be Trump based upon his health, but, when is someone going to do something about Trump? Funny how the Republicans think this act was horrible yet not Ukraine?

      His debts are being collected. He auctioned off the United States. He is not only providing aide and comfort to enemies, we seem to be enjoying the show.

      Every minute he stays, a piece of America dies.

      Someone better make him resign.

      Get a hold of Katie Johnson and offer her protection. What’s the statute of limitations on rape of a minor?

      Better yet, just call him in front of the senate and ask him about the hush money payments. If he tells the truth, he’s admitting to breaking campaign finance law. If he lies, impeach him for lying to Congress.

      You know what’s going to be next....he will start locking up Americans. Do not be doomed to repeat history any more than we already have.

      This man is a menace to society. Enough with the kid gloves.

      How sad, the Kurds have helped us take out ISIS and this is how they are being repaid? I believe Trump doesn't understand nor cares about the consequences of his decisions.

      He is focused on promises made promises kept so that he can show his base how great he is and get re-elected at the expense of an entire group of people who have worked with us.

      It's not about we the people. It's about me the president in everything he does and says. He is acting more like a king everyday he sits in his throne. He and his cohorts are making a mockery of our government and our institutions.
