    Have you ever had an original thought?
    Two things I find amusing about you.
    One- you’re a Bruin troll on an SC message board.
    Two-you parrot every leftist talking point and like the rest of the pinheaded sheeple, you’re lazy. It’s really amusing to hear you try and claim that we’re “old farts” when your party will likely nominate an “old fart” to run against Trump. How progressive!

    When will the know nothing "Sheeple" ever listen to the truth as told by those who have served and witnessed the facts in person and on duty for our country.

    Probably never...they are too busy looking for the next government freebie or special interest social justice cause that is detrimental to the majority of citizens that see no need for such nonsense.

    ...good reason to expand the thinking of those who can and want to be enlightened...unfortunately, some folks are going to get left behind...nothing you can control or do anything about...BTW, this is why you and others like you still have faith and a conscience...

    Q Even after all you have seen -- ISIS prisoners freed, all the humanitarian disaster -- you don’t have any regret for giving Erdoğan the green light to invade?

    PRESIDENT TRUMP: I didn’t give him a green light.

    Q Well, did you tell him to? Did he defy --

    PRESIDENT TRUMP: That’s the same thing as you just -- you know, when you make a statement like that, it’s so deceptive. Just the opposite of a green light. First of all, we had virtually no soldiers there. They were mostly gone. Just a tiny little group. And they would have been in harm’s way. You have a massive army on the other side of the border.

    But more importantly, I didn’t give him a green light. And if anybody saw the letter, which can be released very easily if you’d like -- I could certainly release it -- but I wrote a letter right after that conversation -- a very powerful letter. There was never given a green light. They’ve been wanting to do that for years and, frankly, they’ve been fighting for many, many years.

    And when you ask a question like that, it’s very deceptive, Jon. It’s almost as deceptive as you showing all of the bombings taking place in Syria, and it turned out that the bombing that you showed on television took place in Kentucky. So, you know, and I’m not even sure that ABC apologized for that, but certainly it was a terrible thing. I’m looking at this -- I say, “Wow, that’s pretty bad” -- and it was in Kentucky. It wasn’t in Syria. So I don’t know what you’re going to do about that, but I think ABC owes an apology.

    Q Lindsey Graham just said of your remarks that you made in the Oval Office that if you keep talking like that, quote, “This will be a disaster worse than Obama’s decision to leave Iraq.”

    PRESIDENT TRUMP: No, Lindsey Graham would like to stay in the Middle East for the next thousand years with thousands of soldiers and fighting other people’s wars. I want to get out of the Middle East.

    I think Lindsey should focus right now on judiciary, like the Democrats -- the Do-nothing Democrats, as I call them, because they’re doing nothing. They’re getting nothing done. They’re not getting USMCA done -- between Canada, the United States, and Mexico. They’re getting nothing done.

    And I think Lindsey should focus on judiciary. He ought to find out about what happened with Comey, what happened with McCabe, Lisa, what happened with Peter Strzok, what happened with President Obama, what happened with Brennan. That’s what Lindsey ought to focus on. That’s what the people of South Carolina want him to focus on. The people of South Carolina don’t want us to get into a war with Turkey -- a NATO member -- or with Syria. Let them fight their own wars. They’ve been fighting for 1,000 years. Let them fight their own wars. The people of South Carolina want to see those troops come home. And I won an election based on that. And that’s the way it is, whether it’s good or bad. That’s the way it is.

    And if you look at this country, I’d be willing to bet anything -- political instinct -- that that’s what the country wants. I’m going to get involved in a war between Turkey and Syria, especially when, if you look at the Kurds -- and again, I say this with great respect: They’re no angels. If you look at PKK --

    Q What do you mean by that? What do you mean (inaudible)?

    PRESIDENT TRUMP: Take a look at PKK. ISIS respects PKK. You know, why? Because they’re as tough or tougher than ISIS. You take a look at a lot of the things having to do -- you have to say it -- nobody wants to say it. We’re making the Kurds look like they’re angels. We paid a lot of money to the Kurds. Tremendous amounts of money. We’ve given them massive fortunes. And you know what? It’s wonderful. They fought with us. But we paid a lot for them to fight with us.

    But, just so you understand, we were the ones that captured ISIS. People let some go; they opened a couple of doors to make us look as bad as possible.

    We have a situation where Turkey is taking land from Syria. Syria is not happy about it. Let them work it out. We shouldn’t be over there.

    And you should get your accounts correct. And you shouldn’t be showing up buildings blowing up in Kentucky and say it’s Syria, because that really is fake news.

    Yes, please. Ask a question.

    Q But you don’t think the country is worried about -- about ISIS? I mean you mentioned earlier that you think some of the countries might hate ISIS more than the United States.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP: Oh, absolutely. Russia. Russia hates ISIS. Russia hates ISIS as much as the United States does. Iran hates ISIS. I mean, we’re fighting a war for Russia. We’re fighting a war for Iran. If you look at Syria, Syria hates ISIS. We’re over there killing ISIS and we’re killing -- don’t forget, we’re 7,000 miles away. So we’re killing ISIS. We’re 7,000 miles away. Russia is much closer. Iran is right there. Turkey is right there. They all -- they all hate ISIS. Turkey a little bit less so, but the others, very much.

    Russia had a plane blown up by ISIS. Russia wants nothing to do with ISIS. Russia is tough. They can kill ISIS just as well, and they happen to be in their neighborhood. And all I’m saying is this: I’m not going to lose potentially thousands and tens of thousands of American soldiers fighting a war between Turkey and Syria. Syria is not our friend. Assad is not our friend. That’s the way it goes.

    Please, ask a question to the President.

    Q But -- but, Mr. President, you said you withdrew 28 troops.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP: Twenty-eight. They say it was 28. We thought it was 50, but it was about 28 -- 26 to 28 troops. All accounted for, nobody injured --

    Q And what has happened since the --

    PRESIDENT TRUMP: Listen: All accounted for. Nobody injured. Nobody missing. It’s really nice.

    Q But, look what’s happened since those troops were withdrawn, and since you had that conversation with President Erdoğan.

    PRESIDENT TRUMP: You know, what’s happened? No American soldiers have been killed. That’s what’s happened. And other people will go in -- and very easy to recapture those people that, probably, the Kurds let go to make a little bit stronger political impact. And that’s okay. I fully understand it, but that’s the way it goes.

    We’re bringing our soldiers back home. And we’ve done a great job. We were supposed to be in Syria for one month. That was 10 years ago. And we’ve been a police force. It’s time to bring our soldiers back home. That’s the way it is. We’ve had no soldiers injured or hurt. That’s because I’m President.

    And we’re the boss. Just remember that. We have the most powerful military in the world, by far.

    Please.

    I welcome back Beev, the guy who slinked away with his tail tucked, after people laughed at his claims about Howard Zinn being highly respected. His level of courage then was obvious.

    Besides, I need his legal advice.... I have found that of NPD to be totally unreliable, makes me wish I woulda gone to law school.

    By the way...the fighting has slowed down to a crawl with the inclusion of cease fire talks prompted by Trump via Pence/Pompeo visit.

    There will be signs of cease fire violations, as usual, along with all sides claiming a victory.

    None the less, removing a very small contingent of America troops from the historical Kurdish vs Turkey wars will have no impact on this violent war started long ago between these people..

    In the end, all the naysayers of Trump's decision that have posted here will lose another round of their T.D.S. invoked nonsensical cause..

    Aren't you the guy who said more than once that he was leaving?

    The answer to the Admiral is that not everything has a military solution. Trump addressed the Kurdish "problem" with a diplomatic solution, brokering a cease-fire. He addressed the problem AND fulfilled his campaign promise at the same time. Nice job.

    Perhaps if the media and the Dems were a little less hysterical in their propaganda efforts, we'd have learned the Administration's approach, and the facts of the "pull-out" (of an entire 28 soldiers), sooner. We'd have learned that Trump pulled them out to get them out of harms way, when he was informed by Erdogan that Turkey intended to go after the Kurds.

    Seems odd that you would post this today, after we've already seen the answer to yours and his concern.

    Not only is it 93-7, but keep in mind that that 7 is made up of people who are mostly not conservatives. It's made up of people like Megan McCain and Nicole Wallace (who's now an "independent"), who identify as Republican, but whose ideas and views aren't appreciably different from the Democrats and leftists that make up the majority.

    Maybe the Con-man didn't notice that there's a Facebook "f" on the blinders of the guy in his first cartoon. Since Facebook has been in the news for silencing conservative viewpoints and voices, it's likely that that cartoon is referring to and criticizing the Democratic/leftist echo chamber Facebook has been trying to create. That would make his posting of this cartoon, given the context of his post, a not-so-brilliant mistake, on his part.

    Yet it's all the leftist on the board that only post the talking points the daily msm spew against Trump, et al. With no rhyme or reason to defend their posts. And just about 99% of the time the rants are proved to be wrong... enjoy your failures

    No, what's sad is whiney emotional beta boys like yourself stomping your feet constantly for 3 years, not coming to terms with the election and then senselessly berating everyone who dares disagree with you.

    You have a wide berth to live your life as you please, yet that's not good enough for your ilk, you demand that everyone think and live in a manner as you deem acceptable.

    if your way wins... have a nice future, hope you’re well connected. Otherwise, you are fucked, along with all the other sheeple. I’ll miss your utopian party.
