Oh bunk. Honor? Seriously? For destabilizing Syria and causing hundreds of thousands of deaths? The Kurds are fighting the Turks for their own independence. It has nothing to do with us and us not worth the life or legs of another American soldier. They will say the same thing when we finally get out of Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, Nigeria etc etc. Go fight with the PKK yourself Andy. They will give you a nice rifle and a cool hat.

Andrew Malcolm - Just what is the USA's interest in Northern Syria that must be protected their by the lives of our sons and daughters in the military and our money? If you can articulate and verbalize this interest, go to the members of Congress urging them to declare war.

Since when has anyone left of center worried about a quaint notion like "honor". If there was any "honor" in Washington, kids of politicians wouldn't be getting rich, politicians wouldnt campaign on one thing and vote on the complete opposite, black lives matter, Antifa and occupy wall street would have been denounced day one and the press would report facts, not rumors.

Cold hearted was staying in Vietnam in order to keep political power when they knew it was a lost cause. How many died, severely wounded or got their life interrupted because it was easier than admitting that they needed to cut the losses? It was only years later that we know this for fact. Stopping our boys from dieing may not be macho but it could be courageous.

I would like to remind those of you too young to remember any of it but the fact is the democrats are what are known as fair weather soldiers. You know the ones waving the flags going in but bail on you at the first sign of trouble. I love to see all these democrat hawks, but the fact is I know they are all Jane Fonda under their slimey skins. They will all be sitting on enemy tanks doing selfies given the first opportunity. Trump is right, worry about our own borders, the democrats keep telling us that borders don't matter. So which is it? I say worry about your own backyard before you start mowing your neighbors.

Go tell the EU to step up and defend themselves against Erdogan’s incursion and potential for releasing extremists into Europe instead of expecting the US to do it for them.

Obama encouraged this mess in the Middle East, supplied arms to many and gave such advice as "Ghaddafi must go." Where is his share of the criticism? I would suggest that Andrew pick up a rifle and, if he knows how to shoot it, volunteer to go help one side against the other. Pick one, it makes no difference.

Who looked the other way when Saddam gassed the Kurds? Reagan Who walked away in Iraq and let the Kurds get slaughtered by Iraqi helicopters? GW Bush. Who encouraged the Kurds to revolt and then withdrew support for the operation at the last minute? Bill Clinton. Who forbade the US or its allies to arm the Kurds against the Syrians? Obama. The US has been jerking the Kurds around for decades. Trump promised to end foreign entanglements. He'd be getting the same grief if he had decided to send more troops.

Well, on the bright side, the Kurds should be used to it by now. They have been screwed over and abandoned by EVERY American President, and EVERY Pentagon Perfumed Prince that they have ever dealt with. And by pretty much every other supposed ally they have had in the entire history of their peoples. That they survive at all is a testament to their strength, spirit and resilience.

Political analysts and followers are understandably consumed these days with the grinding mechanics of the 2020 presidential campaign — the debates, the secretly developing ground games, declared policies, the fundraising, the strategizing around key states and polls, the only interim indicators we have of the race still four months from any vote.

Ending a long, drawn-out war turns out to be much more difficult than starting one, as President Donald Trump demonstrated this past weekend when he called off secret peace talks with Afghan government and Taliban leaders. All wars end sometime, though it may not seem that way after nearly two decades of the U.S. and its allies fighting in Afghanistan. It’s much easier if one side can declare victory and the other surrenders. In this case, watching the decreasing Western troop strength and increasing political impatience among Americans as crucial national elections loom over there this month and back here next year, the Taliban may well think it’s winning.

Madison, Wis.—The nation's largest independent spice retailer is peppering Facebook with ads calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Wisconsin-based Penzeys Spices spent nearly $100,000 on Facebook ads last week calling for Trump's impeachment, making it one of the largest social media spenders on impeachment to date. Facebook says Penzeys spent nearly $96,000 on ads supporting impeachment between Oct. 4 and Oct. 10. The Wisconsin State Journal reports Tuesday that one post generated 257,000 reactions, 55,000 comments and 45,000 shares.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was the big winner Tuesday night in Westerville, Ohio in the most crowded presidential debate ever held. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., also delivered strong performances. Former Vice President Joe Biden and the other eight candidates on stage came out the losers in the three-hour Democratic presidential primary debate. Warren’s strong performance will likely solidify her frontrunner status ahead of Biden and Sanders. She emerged the clear winner of the night by showing she was sharp and prepared as she fended off attacks from candidates who were looking to cut into her polling lead.
