    Was this the plan all the time in Syria?

    It seems the winners in Syria are Putin, Assad and Erdogan and the loser is the USA, but not Trump! Putin increases his foothold in the Region and gains the friendship of the Kurds who now like many others in the region have a reason to hate the USA. Assad gets back full control of most of his country and makes friends with the Kurds who will help him in the Region. Erdogan gets the buffer he wants between his country and the Kurds as well as a place to send the displaced refugees who had fled into his country from the Syrian war. And the USA gets the reputation of betrayer of allies so no other country in the world will allow itself to be put in that situation, we are alone! And Trump loses nothing as those who supported him before his decision to betray the Kurds will fall back in line as he will lose very few supporters from the trump cultists. Was this the plan all the time between Putin, Assad and Erdogan and they just talked Trump into it a a dupe, or does it have more to do with Trump's businesses?

    The ISIS flag is flying in the countryside once again.

    This was a terrible policy the right will blame on Obama, no doubt.

    Turkey is going to pay a crushing price for it's actions in Syria. Putin won't be able to offset that.
    When you talk about the firm that produced the Steele reporting, the name of the firm that produced that was Fusion GPS. Is that correct?

    Im not familiar with that, Robert Mueller answered.

    Trump's Istanbul Towers are safe so long as he plays ball with Erdogan. Trump isn't doing ****.

    No one wins in the middle east. Our European allies are not pulling their weight. They are content to let the US take the burden both in financial and human terms. We go into these ****head countries for a two year mission, and 20 years later we are still there.

    The only reason the military is gung ho about it, is the bigger the war the faster the promotions. And yes it is a good thing that we have some fighting going on somewhere to keep our officers and warriors trained in real world combat. But even with that, it is time to get out of that snake pit.

    It was a simple business decision. Declare bankruptcy in Syria and leave the mess, and the losses, for others to deal with. Then concentrate on productive properties such as Trump Tower in Istanbul. Just business. Nothing more.
