Are you fu**ing kidding me, Mr. President?
You justify abandoning our allies in the fight against the Islamic State because they didn’t “help us” during World War II.” You said, “They didn’t help us in the Second World War; they didn’t help us with Normandy. With all of that being said, we like the Kurds.”
Oh, brother. The stupidity of your comments simply defies understanding.
Kurdistan is a region that sprawls across several countries: Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Armenia and Syria. The Kurds comprise about 30 million people. They do not function under a formal government. Kurdistan also is a long way from Normandy, France.
However, Mr. President, they are a proud and sophisticated people. They have been devoted allies of ours in the fight to eliminate the Islamic State. Thousands of them have died fighting ISIS alongside our military personnel.
But you have left them to fight not only ISIS, but apparently the Turks, who have launched attacks in northern Syria. The Turks hate the Kurds. How this tragic circumstance plays out is anyone’s guess.
You have incurred the wrath of politicians in both parties here, Mr. President.
And now you add to it all by speaking stupidly about Kurds’ absence from the beaches at Normandy.
That is idiotic, Mr. President. Oh, wait! I shouldn’t be surprised.
