    Default Military leader of Syrian Kurds tells US 'you are leaving us to be slaughtered'

    thanks again republicans:


    The commander of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces told a senior US diplomat, "You are leaving us to be slaughtered," demanding to know whether the US is going to do anything to protect Syrian Kurds as Turkey continues its military operation targeting America's Kurdish allies in Syria.

    "You have given up on us. You are leaving us to be slaughtered," Gen. Mazloum Kobani Abdi told the Deputy Special Envoy to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, William Roebuck, in a meeting Thursday, according to an internal US government readout that has been obtained exclusively by CNN.

    "You are not willing to protect the people, but you do not want another force to come and protect us. You have sold us. This is immoral," Mazloum added.

    He insisted the US either help stop the Turkish attack or allow the Syrian Democratic Forces to strike a deal with the Assad regime in Damascus and their Russian backers, allowing Russian warplanes to enforce a no-fly zone over northeast Syria, thereby denying Turkey the ability to carry out airstrikes. The US does not want the Kurds turning to the Russians, administration officials say.

    "I need to know if you are capable of protecting my people, of stopping these bombs falling on us or not. I need to know, because if you're not, I need to make a deal with Russia and the regime now and invite their planes to protect this region," Mazloum said.........................................

    allowing Russian warplanes to enforce a no-fly zone over northeast Syria, thereby denying Turkey the ability to carry out airstrikes. The US does not want the Kurds turning to the Russians, administration officials say.
    good luck with that -if you can talk the Russians into a no fly ( having had 1 of their jets already shot down by Turks - we're fine with it.

    He's right. I would add: dishonorable and highly ill-advised. How much trust can America's allies have in her now? It may not be easily recovered, even when this despicable administration is history.

    Kurds should have offered to dig up dirt on Biden.

    We lost quite a bit trust from our allies since 9/11. This is not a just Trump thing.

    The Kurds are useful to the lefties, for the moment, anyway.

    Did you say the same when Obama pulled all the troops out of Iraq, allowing ISIS to massacre hundreds of thousands? It's telling that nobody wants to address this question maybe you will?

    I didn't say the same, because what you describe didn't happen

    In 2008 President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki signed the US–Iraq Status of Forces Agreement which included a deadline of 31 December 2011 for all US forces to leave Iraq. (Note: Bush didn't just TWEET AND LEAVE.)

    In 2014, when ISIL invaded Iraq from Syria, President Obama immediately dispatched US forces back to Iraq, again by agreement with the Iraqi government.The US also started supplying Iraqi Kurdish forces with weaponry and air support.

    Answer your question?

    Last Thursday 10 October, five European members of the UN Security Council - Britain, France, Germany, Poland and Belgium - proposed a resolution urging Turkey to cease the unilateral military action in Syria, noting that it threatens progress against the Daesh terrorists.

    The US joined Russia in vetoing the statement.

    The Blameless One could have fought harder for a SOFA agreement.

    He also could have hit ISIS before they took over in Iraq and slaughtered countless Muslims, Christians, Kurds and etc. Parts of Iraq are mentioned in the NT where ancient Christian communities took root and existed till recently. Now they barley exist if at all.

    Obama played a part in that.
