The Syrian Kurds are Marxist-Communists AND muslims. They are not our ally either. Yes, they fought ISIS for us as long as we provided the hardware. But just because they are the "enemy of my enemy" does not make them "our friends" or ally.

Don’t doubt that I know the purpose of our military. It isn’t just a theory to me. I have also studied the constitution and the history upon which it was crafted. At the same time, I also understand the concept of cleaning up one’s own mess and I also understand that it is wrong to use people for one’s own purpose and then discard them.
Lookup Trump's biz ties to Turkey. He's tight with the leader. Those lives are going to be lost for his financial gain.
Trump is now literally shooting people in the street and people will defend him.

I would ask for some slack on why I feel this way. As you know, I am a grad from UW-Madison. That university usually has an enrollment of 40,000 students. For the sake of debate, let's suppose you walk onto campus and find every student shot, tortured or blown up. My guess is that such a scene would at least break your heart.
But let's further suppose that you also met me, inconsolable, and wandering among the dead. The only thing I say to you is, "There really are 13,000 more..."
You cannot unring a bell. I cannot forget that I got a cushy education while 53,000 boys--the same age as myself--died in Vietnam. At that point it is not a debate, it's an endless funeral procession.
Guilt will pile up. I never applied for a student deferment or any other "get out of Asia free card." I was surprised to learn that the lottery number for boys my age was about 135, and my number was 280.
Oh, and I should tell you about "the book." When I wander through the aisles of B&N, there is a book I always see. One boy looks directly into the camera, and in effect right at me. It's a book about Vietnam. I have no idea who the boy is, whether he made it home or died in country.
...No matter where you are it's enemy territory...
Wait! Mish! Let me get this straight. Are you saying that because Trump owns a couple of buildings in Turkey he is going to allow the Turk army to slaughter civilian Kurds? And because he owns these buildings he is friends with Erdogan?
