    I served on an overseas base that was started right after 9/11 to forward deploy for the GWOT. There were guys there that were there when it opened as privates. They are back and they will be retiring from the military in 2 more years...holy shit.

    I support ripping the bandaid off the middle east and letting others enjoy Syria as much as we enjoyed Iraq and Lybia.
    This is not the way to do it.
    Yes I've served. Yes I've been deployed. Hell, I'm still in, part-time, anyways.

    you wrote 'trippy' but I think you meant 'gross' or 'disturbing' or maybe 'shameful'.

    for sure there's an agenda behind all the moves Trump makes but I don't think it all comes down to the quid pro quo investigation because the reason General Mattis stepped down was because Trump initially was big on pulling out of Syria, and that whole fiasco started about a year ago.

    and here's another perspective.
    During the first year of the Korean War, the Americans gained lots of momentum where they could have pushed all the way through North Korea which would have unified North and South Korea until the Chinese got involved and pushed American troops back south. The combat continued throughout for couple more years until they had the armistice agreement signed by US, NK, and China. For 70 years, cease fire remains but also the US involvement remained.
    I wish US would have pushed all the way through when they had a chance and left Korea after but that's asking too much when around 36,000 American troops died during the Korean War. But whatever they were trying to do after the ceasefire, US is involved and it's been around 70 years past, and US is stuck in that region more than any other region, after 70 years, they still can't leave.
    The scale of things are smaller than the Korean peninsula with the situation in Syria, but there's no for sure time and date of when is the best time to leave. They still can't get out of Afghanistan, every little small reason keeps drawing them back in.

    I mean I know that's your view, but do you think the average public around you thinks that? That's kind of what I'm getting at.

    Only a select few labour right supporters don't view him as a war criminal, and maybe some Tories. The Iraq war was very unpopular here.

    Turkey launches Syria offensive with air strikes

    US Senator Lindsay Graham, a close ally of Mr Trump, said he would lead an effort in Congress to "make Erdogan pay a heavy price", adding: "Pray for our Kurdish allies who have been shamelessly abandoned by the Trump Administration".
