Brought to you by Donny. How long will it take for the US to rebuild the trust with our allies that Donny had squandered?

order to pull back U.S. troops from the border this week effectively triggered the invasion

And the Turks were certainly triggered.

Their troops were immediately ready, mobilized and deploy and they had coordinated attack plans in place.

The Turks knew that the Americans were going to pull out, they probably even knew the exact day as they were instantly ready.

A large attack operation like the one Turkey is conducting can't be planned and organized and prepared in a matter of hours, they knew the US was going to pull out.

Agreed. Why won't you name the person responsible for this travesty? Let me help you: Donny.

Can there be any doubt that Trump is working AGAINST U.S. interests? I have never been a conspiracy theorist but all Trump's mistakes are in the direction of destabilizing our Country and our Allies. At some point, it starts to be undeniable.

Turkey "accidentally" shelled some of our troops.

It's so sad to watch this massacre with such a dumb and callous president at the helm.

Trump threw the Kurdish people helping us under the bus, and it looks like he did it with a nod and a wink from the Putin, Erdogan & Assad.

Who is Trump working for?

or

Which side is Trump working for?

Trump and Putin's Plan - hatched up in 2015 as he was deciding to run for the Presidency....

Putin will provide a "sweeping and systemic" influence operations designed to disparage Hillary and support Trump - in return if elected Trump would;

Pull out of Treaties that are not in Russia's interest - i.e., IRBM Treaty, Iran Treaty...

Sow confusion in Western Alliance - i.e., pull out of Kyoto Treaty, question European contributions to NATO...

Cause disruptions in Western economies thru trade wars...

Make allies and treaty partners questions the US commitment i.e., abandon Kurds, demand more money...

Now all of America's Treaty partners; NATO, Japan, sKorea, Australia, etc., are wondering if Donnie will do to them what he did to the Kurds.

Exactly what Putin wanted...

Turks have shelled American positions.

They also just shelled American special forces. Oops! Trump and his supporters will easily forgive that too. Gotta bow down to Erdogan and keep that Istanbul Trump hotel open!

Funny how the Trumpers are silent on these threads, though.

U.S. President Donald Trump, whose order to pull back U.S. troops from the border this week effectively triggered the invasion, said Washington would now seek to broker a truce.

what? Either Trump green lit this or he got rolled by Erdogan. Now he wants to mediate? Abysmal incompetence.
