Trump: Let Assad, Russia or China protect the Kurds

President Trump on Monday said other countries — including China or Russia — should be responsible for protecting the U.S.-allied Kurds in northern Syria amid a groundswell of bipartisan criticism over his decision to pull American forces out of the region.

When did you become an ISIS booster, or have you always been one?

It would explain a lot.

By all accounts Syria was somewhat calm. Our presence was minimal. Now the whole place is once again descending into chaos.

Unless you live there.

Not the whole place, just northeastern Syria.

As for what Trump said, his flippancy may annoy or disturb people, but unless we intended to stay forever, then someone else - the Russians, Assad, etc. - protecting the Kurds was always going to be a necessary step, because the Turks intentions were clear and have been for some time.

That we haven't tried to arrange something as part of an actual, planned withdrawal of U.S. troops is more concerning than what Trump spouted off.

So now we're there to protect the Kurds?

Isn't that called "mission drift?"

Isn't that something the left is supposed to be highly critical of?  Eternal rationalizations for a war footing?

What's next?  Carving out a Kurdish state from chunks of Turkey and Syria ...  Israeli style ... so we can spend the 21st century resolving disputes and fights and suicide bombings there too?

Are principles and consistency really that hard for people on the left?

The question isn't whether or not we're descended from monkeys.  The question is, when are we going to stop descending?

"Drift" only in as it applies to a rudderless Trump administration. 

The 'Left' didn't put us in this situation and it's clear that the 'Left' isn't as ready to adopt the TrumpHumper's "If you break it.. Walk away from it" posture.. 

Seems principles and consistency is harder for the far-right to define.
