    How would it look if Trump were to announce that he had reached an arms agreement with North Korea and is pulling our troops out of South Korea as part of the deal?
    Would anybody here be surprised?

    Well, bhr, seems the Kurds that are our allies, are not the Kurds in northern Syria. The Kurds we allied with to fight ISIS was kinda like our alliance with Stalin in WWII. An alliance of convenience.
    Again, the MSM is only telling "part of the story", conveniently leaving out pertinent, clarifying portions to build a story.

    I do not mean to argue with you Jimbo, but your figures are way off on the number of military personnel. There have been estimates of as many as 1,000 that are/have been removed. But the actual figure would not matter, is only 26 not important ? And what factor could only 26 (if that were correct) mean anyway as a deterrent ? Were they to be sacrificed, and for what reason ?

    Mitch McConnell has now parted company with Trump over the Syria withdrawal.
    I think he holds the key to Trump's removal from office when it comes to a vote in the Senate.

    I am glad we are not in the middle of it. Let them kill each other off - problem solved.

    Back to Trump's unilateral decision-making, it appears that things have taken a turn for the worse in Syria.

    And here is a brief obituary about the late Dr. Charles Krauthammer, a frequent contiributor to Fox News, who argued that the most dangerous enemy of the U. S. is not American liberals, but conservative isolationists.

    https://www.vox.com/2018/6/21/174908...-dies-obituary

    Of course, Krauthammer was a psychiatrist and not an attorney. So he was wrong where he says, "There is no statute against helping a foreign hostile power meddle in an American election."
    There is.

    Here is another explanation for Trump's popularity in some quarters.
    It obviously does not apply to Sen. Lindsey Graham.
    His supporters are defending their defense.


    https://currently.att.yahoo.com/news...053729172.html


    In one of the comments following the article, one writer states that 40% of Trump supporters do not believe that Trump spoke of Joe Biden at all in his phone call to the Ukraine president.

    Don't forget Mr. "Red Line" Obama.
    He's just as guilty, if not more so, than HRC, in helping to tip the Mid East apple cart over.

    Syria's Assad has been in a civil war with his own people for years.
    Throw in the Russians, the Kurds, the Turks, Iranians and that off the wall ISIS bunch fighting them all.

    Israel has its hands full with Hamas, Hezbollah, the Palestinians and the threat of annihilation by Iran.

    In Iraq, there are two sects of Islam that are intent on killing each other and in Afghanistan, Al Queda, the Taliban.......

    ....and on, and on, and on!!!!!!!!

    This is where God told us, "There will always be wars and rumors of wars!"

    So many of those disagreements are due to a fanaticism that doesn't allow concession with anyone.
    Sounds like liberalism to me!

    PH, it is a given that Russia has been a supplier of arms to the Mid East, but they have certainly not been allied with the US in our fight against ISIS as the Kurds have been ! And Israel is a ally, but I am not too sure how much ISIS fighting they have done for us ! My concern is that it is a touchy issue to start to turn against those who have been willing to share the fight, we do not seem to have many to count on. It is not good to throw those who we could count on,
    under the bus !!
