President Trump campaigned on many key issues to America but none bigger than ending stupid wars or at least limiting our involvement in them.

The vast majority of the public is with Trump on this and in fact – Trump’s merciless mocking and dismantling of the establishment’s foreign policy disasters was key to his improbable win.

After 2 years and with ISIS basically done Trump ordered a Syria pullout and the media and the neocons went nuts.

Of course, they did not report that we have military bases all over the region went they ripped Trump – from Turkey to Iraq to Qatar to say nothing our what our Navy can do in the area – so we are not leaving just being smarter about where we deploy.

It may be that Russia is happy about this too but that doesn’t change the fact, no matter how hard the left will try, that Trump campaigned on this issue and the majority of the public wants an end to stupid wars.

Not surprisingly the last neocon holdout with power in Washington – John Bolten – actually tried to overrule Trump’s Syria decision and many suspect his war-loving cabal of leaking to reporters to damage Trump and make him reconsider.

Enter President Trump who just overruled Bolton before firing a threat heard round the world to Turkey to honor their commitment to not slaughter the Kurds.

From The Daily Mail: President Trump warned Turkey on Sunday of economic devastation if it attacks Kurdish forces in the wake of the US troop pullout from Syria, while also urging the Kurds not to ‘provoke’ Ankara.

Trump took to Twitter to reveal some of his latest thoughts in the slow drip of information being released by his administration after his shocking December announcement to withdraw troops.

His top diplomat Mike Pompeo is on a whirlwind regional tour aimed at reassuring allies amid rising tensions between the US and Turkey over the fate of Washington’s Syrian Kurdish allies in the fight against the Islamic State group.

Pompeo also sought to reassure Washington’s Kurdish allies in the fight against IS, who fear the departure of American troops would allow Turkey to attack them.

‘Starting the long overdue pullout from Syria while hitting the little remaining ISIS territorial caliphate hard, and from many directions. Will attack again from existing nearby base if it reforms,’ Trump said.

‘Russia, Iran and Syria have been the biggest beneficiaries of the long term US policy of destroying ISIS in Syria – natural enemies. We also benefit but it is now time to bring our troops back home. Stop the ENDLESS WARS!’

Do you see what Trump is up against? He ran on a simple promise to end stupid foreign adventures and every single day he is met by opposition from within his administration and without.

And we are talking about Syria, or a part of that that is not terribly important in the grand scheme of things, and they are doing this?
