BEIRUT, Lebanon — Turkey sent warplanes and troops into northeastern Syria on Wednesday in a military operation aimed at flushing out an American-backed militia, Turkish and Syrian officials said.
The Turkish attack came amid a flurry of confusing policy statements from the White House, which on Sunday acquiesced to the operation, agreeing to move American forces out of the way, but on Wednesday, hours after it began, condemned it.
“The United States does not endorse this attack and has made it clear to Turkey that this operation is a bad idea,” President Trump said in a statement on Wednesday.
So President Dotard, if it’s a bad idea (it is) why in hell did you cave and give the Turkish strongman the go ahead?
Answer… Because you’re a dumb as* without an ounce of integrity.
Turkish fighter jets streaked through the sky over Syrian towns, while explosions from artillery shells boomed, causing traffic jams of terrified civilians fleeing south in trucks piled high with their possessions and children.
After about six hours of airstrikes, Turkish troops and their Syrian rebel allies crossed the border late Wednesday, the Turkish Defense Ministry, beginning a ground offensive.
At least seven people were killed in Turkish attacks on Wednesday, according to the Rojava Information Center, an activist group in northeastern Syria. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a conflict monitor based in Britain, put the toll at eight.
Turkey’s long-planned move to root out United States-allied Kurdish forces in northeastern Syria has accelerated rapidly since Mr. Trump gave the operation a green light in a call with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey on Sunday.
President Dotard Trump, you, in all you infinite wisdom and great stable genius-hood have singlehandedly destroyed the credibility of the government of The United States of America. After your brilliant move with the Turkish dictator no one in their RIGHT mind will trust us for at least a generation. Maybe longer.
“Pray for our Kurdish allies who have been shamelessly abandoned by the Trump administration,” Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, usually a staunch Trump ally, wrote on Twitter. “This move ensures the re-emergence of ISIS.”
We all are hoping against hope that our BRAVE Kurdish ALLIES in the fight against ISIS will be spared a blood bath by the Turkish military.
We’re also hoping that maybe now YOU’LL pull your head from your as* and stop supporting Dotard.
Mr. Trump insisted Tuesday that “in no way have we abandoned the Kurds,” and on Wednesday said he firmly opposed the operation.
“Turkey,” he added, “has committed to protecting civilians, protecting religious minorities, including Christians, and ensuring no humanitarian crisis takes place — and we will hold them to this commitment.”
Admit it President Dotard Trump, you got rolled by a brighter and superior negotiator. That is ALL there is to it.
