‘It Didn’t Have to Be This Way’: Just-Retired CENTCOM General – The Atlantic

The United States and especially the U.S. foreign policy is unrecognizable under Trump. We put tariffs on our allies and snuggle up to dictators that have always been our enemies. So what’s breaking news tonight that turkey is mounting an offensive against the Kurds with Russia. Yes the third-rate power that Russia has become is being propped up by Turkey. Russia really needs Syria because Russia has very few ports that they can put their Navy into. And the sacrificial lambs are our allies the Kurds.

it will take years to repair the damage that Trump has done to the United States and its Mission across the world. Look, I’ve never been a big fan of the u.s. being the policeman of the world but somebody had to do it, especially after the fall of the Soviet Union. But a complete capitulation to the Russian federation whose economy is 29th in the world, just to give you an example, if California were a stand-alone country it would have the 5th largest economy. Putin has used asymmetrical weapons against us. He is holding our president hostage because of the help that he gave Trump and getting himself the narrow electoral college win with 78,000 votes. Trump actually has a doctored electoral college map in the white house showing him winning more districts and he actually did. This is a cult of one and Trump will do anything to hold on to power and will do anything to the bidding of Putin.

There’s one more fly in the ointment of this story. The Kurdish forces have approximately 10 to 20,000 Isis prisoners in their midst. What happens when these people are glad loose? Do you really think their anger against us has disappeared while they’ve been prisoners?

Trump is throwing everyone under the bus but doing it to the Kurds amounts to genocide. If the Kurds looked like Norwegians Trump would not be doing this.
