    Russia is a big part of it as well and have warned Turkey. Turkey has over 3 million refugees they want to send back to Syria. I'm sure theres more to the story.

    I suppose the question is, how long do occupying forces stay in a Country, in the end they probably aren't welcomed by either side. Or should the U.S stay there indefinitely? They probably should stay, until the media says it is o.k to leave, as it appears to be with most things.

    It happened to Afghanistan interpreters and those sided with the US in Afghanistan. Every war the US gets involved with, they eventually leave everyone out to dry.

    In this instance it feels like a deal was done behind the scenes though. Felt like the Turkish forces had been planning this operation for a while. Perhaps if they wipe out the ISIS prisoners the US will look the other way.

    US aid to Ukraine funds everything from developmental aid to anti-tank missiles and Humvees.
    Thailand is granting emergency aid for Australia's failed rice harvest and peasant revolts. This will fund Thai Navy combat drones for surveillance of jounalists if Australia digs up dirt on the heroin dealer . Otherwise Canberra will starve.

    Interesting Bellnuit.

    Watch FOX/Newscorp carefully. When they move against Trump it's going to be very interesting. Pence get ready.

    Troops into our 'good friends' Saudi Arabia, troops out of Syria ' a stab in the back ' according to the Kurds.
    Now sanctions likely for Turkey. If only Trump tried better with a deal.

    It's already happening. Shepard Smith, one of their few fact based journalists, resigned abruptly (sort of on air) last night. See it here.



    Drudge of The Drudge Report has all started to turn. And also Brian Kilmeade, one of the three stooges on one of Trump's favourite Fox shows, Fox and Friends, attacked Trump on air over his abandoning of the Kurds, much to the consternation of the the other two hosts.

    About Drudge at the beginning and Kilmeade at around 3:30.

    "Nothing is too ridiculous.."

    Indeed.. You are aware that the testimony in the House regarding the circumstances of Trump demanding her withdrawal as a diplomat were by a 30 year career diplomat. ?
    Have you read her statement ?

    You have to read the opening statement by Ex Ukraime diplomat Marie Yovanovitch to get a picture of how badly Donald Trump has corrupted the US diplomatic corp and the impact that is having on US influence around the world.

    The original basis for the impeachment was the nature of Trumps call to the Ukrainian PM. Essentially he wanted the guy to do him a favour ie start an investigation on Donald Trumps political opponent Joe Bidens son. This action alone was an impeachable offence.

    The inquiry was accelerated by a whistle blower who documented what had happened as well as providing extensive background information on earlier maneuverings by Trump and associates to force/encourage/persuade/bribe the Ukranian PM to play ball.

    Since then the committee has a number of further State Department witnesses who want to testify on the issue. When all of these witnesses have their say and the Trump staff also have the opportunity to explain what happened (or just take the 5th ) the committee will take action.

    One doesn't impeach a President and his staff in haste and without a thorough, detailed evidence trail of misbehaviour.

    It is quite worrying to think that there is a possibility he may not be impeached, whether or not you like trump, in not doing so the republicans are not only tainting their image but setting a precedent for criminality.
