    Best I can tell is that Trump Towers Istanbul is a "Private Label" venture for Trump Orgainizations, not owned by Trump O. at all. The buildings appear to be owned by a Turkish company.

    So, I'm not to clear on why this would motivate Trump to pull out American Troops?
    You are correct @Slippy . Before becoming POTUS Trump had branded himself so well he didn't even have to build the hotels anymore, instead, people just paid him to put his name on it.

    But, you know, the media has a narrative put forth by their masters and the puppets refuse to pull back the curtain and see the truth.

    "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!"

    Best information I ever got from a teenage girl who turned into a drug-laced, middle-aged, former singer.

    I also learned something else. I was watching "Shogun" one night and an episode where two dozen Samurai immediately encircled their leader. Reminded me on how we used to protect our prez.

    ...everything old is new again...
    ...No matter where you are it's enemy territory...

    Depending on the room, Trump could be the smartest man in the room. If we are talking about a rubber room for example... Or the lobby at the retard ranch...

    There in nothing inherently wrong with not being the smartest person in the room, as long as you are taking advice from the one who is.

    We'll be back within a year. The Hell that is the Middle East will always draw us back in.

    I am reading The 9/11 Commission Report, and I am about 1/4 of the way through it. It is very well written and it is worth reading. [Sep 23 2019]

    Think of George Armstrong Custer. This man was foolish, a braggart, and got 110 soldiers killed for nothing. If he failed at anything it was his in his discourse to his superiors about his views on westward expansion and American Indians. Yes, he got his butt handed to him, but it doesn't mean he wasn't correct.

    Up until a few weeks ago, we had American soldiers in the violent areas of the Middle East. This is a "lose/lose" proposition and even I would have pulled out our soldiers after consulting the tea leaves. If the entire Middle East burned to the ground what, if anything, would happen to America?

    I believe nothing has happened or will happen. What we buy from foreign countries comes primarily from China and Japan. Our 'friendly' allies are England, France (maybe) and Germany.

    Again, when it comes to the Middle East I think the best advice I give is, "If the boys wanna fight you'd better let 'em."

    The United States is now oil independent. It's time to let the idiots decide their own fate.
    If I understand you correctly, we agree on the Middle East. It could be covered tomorrow in a sea of mushroom clouds, so much the better.

    As for Trump and Custer, Trump is an impetuous child, as was Custer. I give credit to Custer for being brave, but that may have been due more to his lack of attention to detail and graduating last in his class at West Point then any sense of bravado. Neither listened to their advisors, both thought more of themselves then the people in their command, both men where poorly thought of within their own ranks, and both where not the smartest men in the room. Being a leader is not simply declaring yourself a genius, stating you have a plan, and then marching into the fray haphazardly. That may win you a medal, but it will get you and those that follow you dead. A great leader? No, I think not.

    While I agree that our troops need to be out of that snake pit and the Middle East as a whole can reside in hell, Trumps exit strategy for a our troops in Syria and the fate of the Kurds was, as is most of his decisions, clumsy, short sighted, and naive.

    That's the trouble, Trump doesn't.
