    But the fact is, Trump was concerned about their mortality. He stated many times that he cared and that part of his decision was based on that care. Also, it is the President's decision as to what their job is.

    So no...they were NOT "betrayed by their commander-in-chief".
    Those US soldiers had been in place since December of 2018.

    Trump suddenly became worried about their position in October of 2019?



    Trump doesn't care about anything other than Trump.


    GOP = Gushing Over Putin

    It wasn't until Oct that they were under direct threat from a Turkish invasion of Syria.

    Yeah...I'd say that's a good time to be worried and a good time to take action.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    Erdogan would kill 50 US soldiers?

    Even he isn't that crazy.

    So no...they were NOT "betrayed by their commander-in-chief".
    Which is why he simply sent them to Iraq until Iraq said "no", then sent 600 back to Syria and the rest to other places they might get shot in?

    Trump, the guy who once joked about how an old man fell over at an event and Trump thought, eww gross?






    “So what happens is, this guy falls off right on his face, hits his head, and I thought he died. And you know what I did? I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s disgusting,’ and I turned away,” said Trump. “I couldn’t, you know, he was right in front of me and I turned away. I didn’t want to touch him… he’s bleeding all over the place, I felt terrible. You know, beautiful marble floor, didn’t look like it. It changed color. Became very red. And you have this poor guy, 80 years old, laying on the floor unconscious, and all the rich people are turning away. ‘Oh my God! This is terrible! This is disgusting!’ and you know, they’re turning away. Nobody wants to help the guy. His wife is screaming—she’s sitting right next to him, and she’s screaming.”

    Thank God for the Marines. “What happens is, these 10 Marines from the back of the room… they come running forward, they grab him, they put the blood all over the place—it’s all over their uniforms—they’re taking it, they’re swiping [it], they ran him out, they created a stretcher. They call it a human stretcher, where they put their arms out with, like, five guys on each side,” shared Trump. “I was saying, ‘Get that blood cleaned up! It’s disgusting!’ The next day, I forgot to call [the man] to say he’s OK,” said Trump, adding of the blood, “It’s just not my thing.”

    The Time Donald Trump Turned Away in Disgust While a Man Was Bleeding to Death in Front of Him

    Plays audio: YouTube

    There's your "concern for mortality." Anyone who does not run to help - unless they literally have an aversion to blood so bad they would fall over unconscious and possibly hurt themselves - runs over and helps. And if they have that strong an aversion? If they do, they don't joke about it. It's not a funny story.

    Dude's a sociopath.




    You can find the Stern video if you want to claim they edited it, which you will. or say it doesn't matter. Or....well any old bull****, right?
    Zelensky: [. . .] We are ready to continue to cooperate for the next steps specifically we are almost ready to buy more Javelins from the United States for defense purposes.

    Trump: I would like you to do us a favor though [. . . ]
