More On Syria

| October 16, 2019

As you probably know, the “debates” aren’t really debates. They are circus for the masses. The only thing missing is toreros and picadors.

Last night, Butthead Buttigieg and Tulsi Gabbard got into a pissing match over the withdrawal of US troops from Syria. Fauxcahontas stuck her oar into that, as did others, but that is par for the course with this bunch. As is true with the general public, none of them seem to be able to distinguish between which Kurds are the friendlies and which ones are not.

They’re ignoring the subsequent part about Pence being sent to negotiate with Turkey to get Erdogan and his pals to stay out of Syria.

A few days ago, I posted an article that covered more than just the bare bones of what is going on there now. My view is that the Turks won’t stop unless they are forced to do so at gunpoint, and even then, when your back is turned, they’ll go right on trying to seize turf that used to be part of the Ottoman Turk Empire, back before these political opportunists were even germplasm.

    I do not trust the Turks.

    I get nausious seeing Turkish firearms evaluated in the NRA mags.

      How about the work of Comrade Kalashnikov? How many of our fellow service folks died in front of his works? Now, he is the rock-star invented of the penultimate “Bubba Gun” .

      Irony with a Vodka chaser.

      Plenty of decent Turks. They also make decent guns.

    I say let the Russians SDF and the Turks
    Kill one another case solved
    We don’t need to be there

      I read the term Russian “mercinaries” in an
      article yesterday. Expendable fodder such as
      occured when they fired upon US troops couple
      years ago.
      I don’t think Putin will spill his best blood
      into this mess.

  3. Slowest Joe says:

    I strongly support the rights of Turks and Kurds to kill each other.

    I got an idea!
    Maybe we can get the Russians to join that retard fight. Brilliant!

      I think you see the intent of Trump’s actions.

      “Why the heck are we slapping this Turd-Baby? Here, -you- slap it for a while.”

      This is even funnier if you consider to what lengths our enemies went to build the Turd-Baby as a means to grind down our armed forces and distract us from more important things. (With the willing help of previous idiots)

      Russia is a whole bunch closer to the scene. This means whomever locally gets mad at them for meddling has a much easier time retaliating.

      How many “‘stans” border Russia? China?

      Trump does have a habit of turning things around on opponents.

    An interesting video, made by a Russian, of the abandoned US outpost at Manbij.

    Kind of large and expensive for an “outpost”. Makes me wonder just how much money we have already sunk into Syria, not to mention all the other little “outposts” we have around the world.

  5. Great article Ex, now your really talking turkey about this mess.

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Bad pun. Bad Jeff for Bad Pun. Bad Boy!!!

    • MSG Eric says:

      It seems Turkey has forgotten how many years they’ve been on our international gravy train…

      • Ex-PH2 says:

        Iran is trying to sell its oil to Turkey. The Iranian tanker that was stopped at Gibraltar a couple months ago was on its way there.

        Why not land transport? Oh, that little thing called warfare – mines, bombs, artillery – stuff like that. Land transport no good. Now, how could we fix that….?

    When you can’t tell the sheep from the goats, that makes them all goats. And that is true if you’re talking about the quagmire of the ME or the clusterphuque that is the Demon Crapic Party Debates.

    “Maybe we should just nuke both of them from orbit.”

    US foreign aid to Turkey (all agencies – partial reporting for 2018/2019) is $154,447,282.00. I think all that money has made them “too big for their britches”.

    Now we don’t have problems with Switzerland with the $2,500 we give them in foreign aid. We should put Turkey on the same track as Switzerland.

    On a side note, foreign aid to Syria (all agencies – partial reporting for 2018/2019) is $890,959,448,00.
