    Trump Pulling the Plug on Endless War

    "​B​ut it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home. WE WILL FIGHT WHERE IT IS TO OUR BENEFIT, AND ONLY FIGHT TO WIN​," he wrote in another posting.​

    Trump continued to say that Turkey, Europe, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Russia and the Kurds "will now have to figure the situation out, and what they want to do with the captured ISIS fighters in their ​'​neighborhoo​d.'"

    He also warned Islamic State fighters.

    "​We are 7000 miles away and will crush ISIS again if they come anywhere near us!​," Trump said. ​​

    ​The commander-in-chief said once he took office, the US "defeated 100% of the ISIS Caliphate" and captured thousands of Islamic State militants, who he said were mostly from Europe.

    Several prominent Republicans admonished the White House on Monday for its controversial decision to allow Turkey to invade northern Syria and potentially wipe out U.S.-allied Kurdish fighters — with Sen. Lindsey Graham criticizing the maneuver as "a disaster in the making" in a rare public break with President Donald Trump.

    "I don't know all the details regarding President Trump's decision in northern Syria," the South Carolina Republican wrote on Twitter, adding that he was in the process of scheduling a phone call with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and warning: "If press reports are accurate, this is a disaster in the making."

    Pat Robertson Wants More War.

    Televangelist Pat Robertson has joined the chorus of conservative critics lambasting President Donald Trump's decision to pull U.S. forces out of Northern Syria — endangering America's Kurdish allies.

    Trump was slammed by many of his usual defenders on Monday after the White House announced the U.S. will allow for a Turkish military operation in the war-torn region. Trump argued in a statement that Turkey will assume responsibility for all ISIS fighters captured in the region, many of whom were detained by Kurdish forces allied with America. The Turkish government views these Kurdish militias as terrorists — despite the U.S. supporting them in the fight against ISIS.

    Trump shot back at his critics on Twitter by defending his position while promising that "if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey."

    Robertson said he was "absolutely appalled" by the announcement, warning that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is a "thug" and a "dictator."

    "To say he's an ally of America is nonsense. He's in for himself," said the 700 Club host. "The President, who allowed [Jamal] Khashoggi to be cut in pieces without any repercussions whatsoever, is now allowing the Christians and the Kurds to be massacred by the Turks."

    Robertson concluded by saying "The President of the United States is in danger of losing the mandate of Heaven if he permits this to happen."

    I wonder what he means by that?

    Sounds like the right decision to me. Yes, pulling out will leave a vacuum that
    others will fill, but I see no alternative.

    Makes me wonder about the timing of this in regard to the upcoming House vote on impeachment. Did he make a deal for votes? Who knows.

    Now we know more about it. Trump pulls the group of soldiers out and word gets to ISIS and they come out of their holes so-to-speak. We wont know for sure, perhaps but it seems fitting. Pres Trump is a strategist and loves his Troops and especially the Delta Team.
