Skip to comments.Trumpís Syrian Maneuver Works Ė President Erdogan Asks for Negotiations With Kurds in Syria

President Trump has played this out perfectly. By isolating Turkish President Recep Erdogan, and effectively leaving him naked to an alliance of his enemies, Erdogan is now urgently asking for the U.S. to mediate peace negotiations with Kurdish forces.
This request happens immediately after President Trump signed an executive order [See Here] triggering the sanction authority of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. Erdogan called the White House requesting an urgent phone call with President Trump.
After President Trump talked to Kurdish General Mazloum Kobani Abdi, the commander of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, President Trump then discussed the options available to President Erdogan. As a result of that conversation, Erdogan requested the U.S. mediate negotiations. Vice-President Mike Pence announces he will be traveling to the region with National Security Advisor Robert OBrien to lead that effort. WATCH:

Trump is much more savvy, than people give him credit.
SSSHHH. Don’t tell the NeoCons, the democrats, the Never Trumper’s and, not a few Trump supporter hand-wringers about this.
It’ll burst the false narrative bubble that the president doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing and is simply acting in knee jerk fashion to keep a campaign promise. Neglecting to note of course that if that was all it was he could have done this 2.5 ago.
As I have said several times in here, some people jump to conclusions right off the bat and start the handwringing and pearl clutching when President Trump makes a move or says something out of the ordinary...
With this President, it’s best to wait a few days because what he said or what he did usually turns out to br the correct thing...
Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump
After defeating 100% of the ISIS Caliphate, I largely moved our troops out of Syria. Let Syria and Assad protect the Kurds and fight Turkey for their own land. I said to my Generals, why should we be fighting for Syria....
....and Assad to protect the land of our enemy? Anyone who wants to assist Syria in protecting the Kurds is good with me, whether it is Russia, China, or Napoleon Bonaparte. I hope they all do great, we are 7,000 miles away!

I think it pays to have faith in the man.
Trump is savvy, AND if this mess doesn’t get straightened out without terrible loss of Kurdish lives, I’m going to vote for someone else. Or not vote.
I was probably his first fan, knew the minute he walked on the stage at the first Republican Debate in 2016 that he would be POTUS.
So, show me the money, Donald. Make this work.
It's almost as if President Trump has some experience with the art of the deal or somethin'.
Screw the Turks. Let those treacherous assholes suffer the inevitable consequences of their unprovoked invasion. And neither the US or any other NATO nation owes the Erdogan Turks a damned thing to help them deal with the consequences.
George Will sad.
There was a steady parade of “experts” on tv today saying President Trump just destroyed the world by removing some troops from the area.
Many videos of Syrian Kurds cheering as the Syrian Army (finally allowed in to protect them) enters Kurdish areas to protect them from the Turks & Jihadist savages.
President Trump in in fact a genius.
You will NEVER see this on fake American TV (including Faux News).
Those poor democrats just can’t seem to catch a break. Trump has been kicking their asses at every turn. I love it. How many times have they gone on CNN saying “we’ve got him this time...” ?
Lots of drunk democrats these days me thinks. There should be a drink called ‘2019 democrat’ that is so strong that it’s a fire hazard.
President Trump is allowing the Syrian Army to save Syrian Kurds, as he should God bless him.
Never to be shown on endless war propaganda whores in the American fake media.
The traitors in the US Congress & American fake media who want American sons & daughters to die in stuipd wars will never show you the Syrian Army is now saving the Kurds from Turkey. It’s Verboten to show this in fake media.
Watching Faux News you will never see anything that makes the NeoCons’/NeoLibs’ targets look good.
Watching American TV is like reading Der Sturmer or Pravda. The lie & misinform.
