    Donald Trump - Biggest Idiot of The Century. Here there everywhere.

    This guy will have to go down as the Biggest Idiot of the Century. He has highly dubious transactions but gets into politics where they will cut your "brass monkey's" out to bring you down.

    Even the great nutter, John Bolton, has some nationalistic morals and has deserted and ratted on Trumps sinking ship. As someone has wrote a book titled: Every thing that Trump touches dies!"

    We are so fortunate to live in this fascinating era and at old age to not have to live through what he has sown.
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    Even his Republican mates voted against him today on deserting the Kurds to be wiped out by the Turks. The Kurds lost 11,000 maybe in that conflict getting rid of ISIS whereas the USA only lost 3 - now Trump has ratted on them leaving them like helpless isolated pawns against queens. I can't think of any previous USA leader being rebuffed by his own party on foreign policy - it has occurred a few times now and probably will accelerate now his Party have found their brass monkeys.

    Plenty of Kurds won't be living through it either.

    So the objection is that Trump is keeping his promise to withdraw America from endless middle-east wars? And on a related matter, how terrible that he wants both the UN and NATO member countries to pay more of their own way rather than being bankrolled by the USA.

    well said. It's a common denominator of US politics' critics that they're not really anti - Trump, anti - Obama or anti - what have you! They are simply anti - US. In this case,

    1) Americans stay in the Middle East they are establishing their "imperialistic" presence in the area

    2) Americans leave the Middle East they are traitors abandoning the poor minorities to their fate.

    Go figure!

    Ignoring that much of the criticism is coming from Trump's own party, including many who were silent through many of his other mistakes.

    What could possibly be more anti-US than abandoning it's strategic interests in the region and allowing it's long term strategic rival Russia to step in. Hard to think if Russia ever had a better ally in the whitehouse than Trump.

    But even beyond the region, it does damage to the US reputation as an ally, if they are prepared to abandon the Kurds who's to say they wouldn't abandon other allies? Like us.

    Capa Fan, even your mates in the Jerusalem Post are screaming blue murder.

    As someone who has closely followed Turkish affairs for a number of years, I was shocked to learn that US President Donald Trump had given the green light for a third Turkish invasion of Syria and ordered the withdrawal of US troops from observation posts at Tel Abyad and Ras al-Ayn. This decision is on a par with the UN failure to defend the “safe area” of Srebrenica in Bosnia in 1995, which led to the massacre of 8,000 Muslim men and boys.

    and
    According to Deborah Bookchin, Murray Bookchin’s daughter, the Syrian Kurds have created communities which empower women and people from every ethnic and religious background. US officers who have fought in Syria attest to the reliability of their Kurdish allies, who make up the major part of their SDF, and their commitment to democratic values such as equal rights for women, freedom of speech and religion as well as local governance.

    Former US special envoy to the coalition against ISIS Brett McGurk has in a tweet put the situation in proper perspective: “The United States has and was bending over backwards to address all security concerns for Turkey. There was no imminent threat. This has nothing to do with Turkey’s security. It’s part of a plan to extend Turkey’s border 30 km. into Syria.

    and your mate Pat Robertson

    Trump also risks losing his electoral base, as televangelist Pat Robertson has warned the president is “in danger of losing the mandate of Heaven.”

    The last point is in reference to Christians being Kurds and will be wiped out - as the notorious saying goes "kill them all God will know his own".

    I have a friend in Byron who was involved when East Timor won their independence and was part of the peace keeping force. For some reason they were not able to protect the (Christian) east Timorese and to this day he is still traumatised by what he witnessed. Those Kurd's blood is on Trump's hands that he never will be able to wash away - was that Lady Macbeth who had the same problem?

    In “Mein Kampf,” Hitler would take these points a step further. All ideas of universal goodness were simply mental traps set by Jews to catch weak German brains. The only way to restore German faith in German virtue was the physical elimination of the Jews. The same held for ideas of universally accessible truth. As Benjamin Carter Hett put it in an excellent recent study of Hitler’s rise to power, “The key to understanding why many Germans supported him lies in the Nazis’ rejection of a rational, factual world.”

    In his speeches of late 1919, Hitler was pioneering a style of propaganda that has defined much of the century since (and which the philosopher Jason Stanley has described in sophisticated fashion). It begins with a total devotion to persuasive technique, passes through the creation of a pure myth, and ends with the speaker leading his country on a chase for fake phantoms that ends over real graves. In “Mein Kampf,” Hitler wrote that propaganda “must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over.”
    In his first speech to the DAP as one of its members, at a beer hall in Munich on Oct. 16, he seems to have already grasped this technique. In “strong words,” as a listener recalled, he demanded decisive action against the Jewish “enemy of the people.” He reserved particular fury for newspapers, demanding that they be replaced by propaganda organs that spoke to German emotions. Not long afterward, the army helped Hitler and his party (by then known as the NSDAP, short for the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    All these tricks Trump is using - I think he did manage to read one book or website and it was this very informative one.

    Trump’s ‘tough love’ gets Turkey to agree to 5-day ceasefire with Kurds
    Israel World News, 17 October 2019

    Trump is crediting his threat of sanctions on Turkey as ‘tough love’ that led the country to agree to a five-day ceasefire in its battle with Kurds in northern Syria.

    By Associated Press

    The U.S. and Turkey agreed Thursday to a five-day ceasefire in the Turks’ attacks on Kurdish fighters in northern Syria to allow the Kurds to withdraw to roughly 20 miles away from the Turkish border. The arrangement appeared to be a significant embrace of Turkey’s position in the weeklong conflict.
    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”

    So this is how the Kurds are rewarded for doing the USA's dirty work that began with the (unnecessary) invasion Iraq (and probably Afghanistan). Why do the Kurds have to suffer an invasion by Turkey a few days ago, today or in the future. I have heard on cable news that the Turks are not reporting it as a ceasefire at all.

    The USA rounded everyone up to invade Iraq that led to the destabilisation of the area that enabled ISIS to get a foothold so it could be seen that the USA is responsible to fix the problem. I marched against that invasion a few decades ago. If the USA did not want to bankroll they should not have invaded in the first place. They shelled out the money but not the bodies - only 3 Yanks killed according to one report but 11,000 Kurds killed in clashes. The USA were the weak link.

    I once saw an interview with Magda Szubanski, in which she said her goal was to look the most ridiculous she could while staying on TV.
    I wonder if Trump has a similar goal, to see how unfit for office he can appear without losing the presidency.

    You may be right. But then, isn't that all the more reason to bring the American troops home?
