As Trump abandons Kurds, Israel worries how dependable he is

Who knows where Trump's loyalties lie beyond his family and their bank accounts. Throughout his life Trump's shown he's clearly not dependable and that nothing he says can be believed.

Since he's been in the White House he's told thousands of lies, distorted reality to fit his ever shifting perceptions, flip-flopped, caved and alienated many historical allies.

No nation should depend on him or the US as long as he's in office. He's so completely dishonored the office that it's doubtful many nations will ever have much trust in the US, which sadly has been the case for a while.

Trump said he'd be a disrupter and his supporters encourage him to continue to bust things up. Which nation outside the US gains most from his disruptions? Which other nations are expanding their empires while Trump drags the US down.

Many of the US president's former employees and business associates all say that he will throw anyone under the bus to save himself. He is doing that now with the current impeachment push.

If Israel wants to know what the US president will do then they should just ask Russia. They will know before anyone else.

Wonderful. Now can blame all the backstabbing of the U.S. government over the years on Trump. Clean slate. NOT!

Netanyahu knows who wears the pants in that marriage. Israel will be fine.

Donnie would throw Melania, Barron, Ivanka, Don Jr, and Eric under the bus to save his own skin.

Every US ally should be concerned - especially because the spineless Repubs in Congress sit on their hands and make like Sgt Shultz - I hear nothing, I see nothing...

Worthless cowards....

Shows what the American promise is worth, NOTHING! They should close their Japan Bases and leave. Japan stands alone. America never keeps its word in the long run.

What a load of hog really if America wasn't here to protect Japan it would have been invaded long ago...So be a little grateful to America for your freedoms remember Japan was the aggressor that is why America came here in the first place...As for Japan standing alone thanks for the laugh...

The snake Netanyahu must know by now Trump's takes action on a wimp and no one can predict what he will do next.

Trump's presidency is like a game of charade. Six letters beginning with "f" ending with "d".

What a strangely worded headline. Closer to the truth would be:

"As Trump partially pulls back from the illegal US occupation of Syria, Israel worries that they do not have him completely in their pocket".

And now wait for the warmongers at CNN to tell us that is a bad thing.

And now wait for the warmongers at CNN to tell us that is a bad thing.

And for the global alt right at RT/Breitbart etc. to continue slanting their reporting to support the far right's agenda and continue to attack any nation with bits of democracy remaining. #butyouguys #backatcha

It is not Trump's mercurial behavior that the Israeli regime needs to worry about, but rather the increased awareness of the American population to both the amount of disinformation they have been subjected to, and the backlash against Islamophobia his open racism is generating.

Those, rather than the possibility of Trump reversing a long standing position of the American state, are what threatens to send Israel the way that it's former twin regime in South Africa went.

Trumps not reliable. He won't have your back unless it benefits him.

Trump said it was no big deal NK was shooting off rockets over Japan. He abandoned the Kurds.

If I were Israel, I wouldn't put my eggs in the same basket with the rich guy with orange hair in the white house.

And he tells NK to give up their nukes.  Because if they do everything will be "tremendous".  I think they said much the same to Gaddafi about his WMD.  And that didn't turn out so well for Libya did it?  Trump is completely untrustworthy.   And by his actions so is the USA.
