Trump Cites ‘Great And Unmatched Wisdom’ Then Threatens To ‘Obliterate’ Turkish Economy

Following a sudden decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria and let Turkey handle things in that area, leaving the captured ISIS forces in their hands, Trump issued a threat to the nation if they do anything he considers “off limits.”

Can somebody tell us when Trump destroyed and obliterated Turkey’s economy and why wasn’t it in the news?

This move is considered to be a “major shift” in U.S. military policy and has many concerned for the Kurdish forces that have been fighting with us in Syria, whom Turkey considers to be “a terrorist insurgency.” The Kurds are an ethnic minority in the Middle East who often face persecution and have been a friend to the U.S. military for decades, always responding to American calls for help, even as they have felt repeatedly betrayed when the United States no longer need them.

Leaving northern Syria in the hands of a state which hates the Kurds is yet another in a lost list of betrayals.

According to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who has widely been considered a dictator since the 2017 election and has received praise from Trump in the past, the U.S. President made his decision after the two of them spoke on the phone. Even Fox News, Fox & Friends, and long-time Trump loyalists are decrying this move as impulsive and ill-advised.

You know it’s serious when Lindsey Graham starts rhyming.

Aside from the serious political consequences of letting a dictatorship take over for us in the fighting of another dictatorship, people cannot ignore that “great and unmatched wisdom” comment. Who is the man behind the curtain?

Good luck cleaning up this one, Republicans.
