>Josh Manning, a former counterterrorism analyst for the army, said in a tweet the decision was “hitting a lot of vets hard”. > >“The Kurds sacrificed a lot and were just amazing partners in really tough times.  > >“I can’t imagine what its like being in N. Iraq [sic] and Syria and hearing your comrades under attack and being able to do nothing.” > >Mr Manning later told *The Independent*: “Just like there are Kurds who are alive because of US forces, there are Americans who are alive because of sacrifices the Kurds made for us. Abandoning them to the Turkish military forces who want to raze their villages and cities is not the way to repay that debt.” Trump made a unilateral decision that cost hundreds of the lives of American allies and the lives of civilians and he did it to further a personal business deal. That is outright corruption on its face.

And then people wonder why so many people around the world seem to hate America… It’s that kind of stuff that’s not helping. Dictate the world what to do and then just flip flop without warning, leaving allies to die.

I served in Syria in 2017 along side the Kurds. They did all the fighting and real sacrifices. They are a great people and this betrayal is unforgivable.

Just as Trump announces he’s sending more troops to Saudi fucking Arabia to “assist in their defense.” sounds about right. Get this piece of shit out of office, or god help us let him chow down one big mac too many and just fucking go away

His core base will call these veterans snowflakes and keep moving. They are too committed into their worship to turn back on anything. Trump could decide that he wants to kill 10 puppies a day with a hammer for the rest of his term and his followers will keep on worshipping him because that’s where we are with this. They are at a point where he can do no wrong and they will keep on with their hero worship.
