....almost 3 years, but it is time for us to get out of these ridiculous Endless Wars, many of them tribal, and bring our soldiers home. WE WILL FIGHT WHERE IT IS TO OUR BENEFIT, AND ONLY FIGHT TO WIN. Turkey, Europe, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Russia and the Kurds will now have to figure the situation out, and what they want to do with the captured ISIS fighters in their “neighborhood.” They all hate ISIS, have been enemies for years. We are 7000 miles away and will crush ISIS again if they come anywhere near us!

They'd be a good barometer of his support.

But you know their answers and they don't need the aggro.

The GOP will find an excuse to break ranks.  They're an ace away from a panic attack.

Trump's basically said he's only interested in fighting wars he can win (in his own head at least); and once again he complains about the money.  More soft power is being eroded here.

The GOP will turn on him.  They'll take the beating in the polls and they'll put up with whatever lunatics win the nominations because the GOP know they wont get elected.  They'll endure it and rebuild.

Can a decision like this be overturned in the House?

Do you really think they'll do this before next year's election? I just feel they're going to double down and sink further just so they can secure possibly another SC pick and some more tax cuts over a potential second term.

The one thing that is holding many in the GOP back is that they could be primaried - or, if they are retiring, whoever they would like to replace them could be primaried.  Of course they'll try to tough it out but the reaction to Trump's Kurdish decision shows they're starting to panic.  On top of the impeachment investigation it's becoming increasingly difficult for them to run interference.  At this rate it wont matter who wins the nominations because they're chances of getting elected are being badly eroded.

Their best option is to get him out and shut down his twitter platform.  And I do honestly think they have begun contingency plans.  They've got their judges so it would be crazy not to.

Syria's Kurds accused the U.S. of turning its back on allies and risking gains made in the yearslong fight against ISIS.

Trump defended the move in a series of tweets, acknowledging that "the Kurds fought with us," but adding that they "were paid massive amounts of money and equipment to do so."
He just sentenced thousands of Kurds - who fought alongside Americans - to death. Keep in mind also that the Kurds in Iraq are watching this as well.

Trump is a stupid, self-centered fool who has zero understanding of global politics.

Newsweek
EXCLUSIVE: OFFICIAL WHO HEARD CALL SAYS TRUMP GOT 'ROLLED' BY TURKEY AND 'HAS NO SPINE'
BY JAMES LAPORTA ON 10/7/19 AT 2:16 PM EDT


Donald Trump got "rolled" by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a National Security Council source with direct knowledge of the discussions told Newsweek.

In a scheduled phone call on Sunday afternoon between President Trump and President Erdogan, Trump said he would withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria. The phone call was scheduled after Turkey announced it was planning to invade Syria, and hours after Erdogan reinforced his army units at the Syrian-Turkish border and issued his strongest threat to launch a military incursion, according to the National Security Council official to whom Newsweek spoke on condition of anonymity.

The U.S. withdrawal plays into the hands of the Islamic State group, Damascus and Moscow, and the announcement left Trump's own Defense Department "completely stunned," said Pentagon officials. Turkey, like the United States, wants regime change in Syria. Russia and Iran support the Assad regime.

"President Trump was definitely out-negotiated and only endorsed the troop withdraw to make it look like we are getting something—but we are not getting something," the National Security Council source told Newsweek. "The U.S. national security has entered a state of increased danger for decades to come because the president has no spine and that's the bottom line."

Newsweek granted the National Security Council official anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. The source said it would not be surprising to see a Turkish incursion in the next 24 to 96 hours.

Turkey has long considered the Kurdish militia in Syria to be a terrorist insurgency, despite the United States providing military and financial aid to the group in its fight against ISIS, the Islamic State militant group. A battle with the vastly superior military of Turkey, a NATO ally, could drive the Kurds into the arms of Bashar Al-Assad, the Syrian dictator that Washington wants ousted, and by extension into an alliance with Russia and Iran, two U.S. rivals with forces in Syria.

The White House said late Sunday evening in a statement that Turkey will soon invade northern Syria but both the Defense Department and Trump on Twitter said they made clear to Turkey that they do not endorse a Turkish operation in northern Syria.

"As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I've done before!)," said Trump on Twitter Monday. "They must, with Europe and others, watch over the captured ISIS fighters and families...it is time now for others in the region, some of great wealth, to protect their own territory."

According to the NSC official, who had first-hand knowledge of the phone call, Trump did not endorse any Turkish military operation against Kurdish Forces, but also did not threaten economic sanctions during the phone call if Turkey decided to undertake offensive operations.

In a statement, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said, "The United States Armed Forces will not support or be involved in the operation, and United States forces, having defeated the ISIS territorial "Caliphate," will no longer be in the immediate area."

The New York Times reported Monday that about 100 to 150 American forces would withdraw from northern Syria but not completely from the country. Newsweek confirmed the Times reporting but the National Security Council official said the number was closer to 230 service members, among them U.S. Special Forces and reconnaissance units.

The Times also reported witnesses observed United States forces withdraw from two observation posts in Tel Abyad and Ein Eissa in northeastern Syria. Newsweek confirmed these on Monday—a senior Defense Department official said American forces are about 90 percent complete with the withdraw as of publication.

One of the main issues in the phone call between the two world leaders concerned the roughly 2,000 Islamic State militant prisoners being held by the Kurdish-dominated Syrian Defense Forces in northeastern Syria, who the U.S. military assists financially.

Trump told Erdogan he did not want anything to do with ISIS prisoners despite the United States not currently detaining Islamic State prisoners in Syria. The Syrian Defense Forces control custody of the prisoners.

Erdogan said Turkey would take custody of the ISIS militant prisoners, according to the White House statement and the National Security Council official Newsweek spoke to for this story.

"The ISIS prisoners, some of them, will eventually be freed amongst the chaos, and remain in the area or go elsewhere to rejoin the fight," speculated the National Security Council official.

The White House statement on Sunday also expressed Trump's long-held frustration with how other NATO-allied countries had dealt with captured Islamic State group fighters. The statement singled out "France, Germany and other European nations," for refusing to take back their citizens who had joined the Islamic State militant group.

U.S. Army General Mark A. Milley, Trump's newly minted chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, is scheduled to meet with the service chiefs this morning to discuss the matter, said National Security Council source.

The National Security Council official said they could not speak about what Trump's admirals and generals may plan, but said they would not expect anything out of the usual norms as the Defense Department follows orders with or without advanced knowledge.

If the United States had refused to move out of Turkey's war path, U.S options would not just be the threat of potential conflict between nation-state militaries, it would have been applied pressure on the Turkish economy, according to the National Security Council official.

However, the United States chose not to stand its ground to protect Kurdish Forces against Turkish airstrikes as a part of Trump's "America First policy" and his historical views that war is bad for business, according to the official.

On Sunday, Erdogan reinforced his army units at the Syrian-Turkish border hours after he issued his strongest threat to launch Turkish forces over the border and into the "buffer zone," between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

The buffer zone—sometimes referred to as the peace corridor—was established to prevent another Turkish invasion of northern Syria. The United States had been working to establish a proper demilitarized zone prior to Trump's endorsement of Turkey's military plans.

If Trump's withdraw of U.S. forces had not occurred, the National Security Council official told Newsweek, the United States could have continued to refine the buffer zone on the Syrian-Turkish border.

"To be honest with you, it would be better for the United States to support a Kurdish nation across Turkey, Syria and Iraq," said the National Security Council official. "It would be another Israel in the region."

The current foreign policy debacle is what prompted Trump's former defense secretary, James Mattis, to resign his post after Trump decided to abruptly withdraw American forces from Syria in December 2018. Mattis was the last of the generals touted as the "adults" in the administration—and was an outspoken opponent of a Syrian withdrawal.

A senior Defense Department official told Newsweek in January no U.S. general was happy with the decision to pull back U.S. troops from Syria as Pentagon officials feared the withdrawal could spark an ISIS resurgence similar to the Taliban's growing influence and territory in Afghanistan.

Administration officials in January told Newsweek Trump's sudden withdraw order could undercut strategic U.S. alliances with regional allies; free Russia and Iran to re-establish a full military presence and solid footing in the Mediterranean; and leave U.S.-backed Kurdish fighters vulnerable to being decimated by a Turkish air campaign.

A complete withdrawal could also potentially give up a valuable regional position to American military forces that threaten United States interests in the region, including the interests of allies such as Israel and, to some extent, Jordan.

The National Security Council official compared Turkey to "playground bullies" on Monday.

"When the bigger guy [United States] moves aside in the playground, they [Turkey] get to beat on the smaller guy [Syrian Defense Forces] and this is not about the U.S. being the world police," the National Security Council source told Newsweek.

"We are telling the world, we will use you and then throw you away," the official added. "It's not like they don't have a television in Asia, in Africa, and South America."

So with the US moving out of Syria, the Kurds are on their own. And that means Turkey can have a go at them. Now I understand that Trump wants to get America out of wars, but he is absolutely clueless. What he's doing now is essentially what Bush Sr did. Bush Sr told the Iraqi people to revolt against Saddam and ooops, Saddam killed them. Now the Kurds have stood up against Daesh and the thank you for that is Turkey can attack them. And before that Trump has decided to stand by Saudi, who funded Daesh. He has also decided Iran are evil, but forgets that Iran were fighting to defeat Daesh.

Democrats issue subpoenas to Esper, White House budget chief

Quote
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Democrats leading an impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine issued subpoenas Monday to Defense Secretary Mark Esper and acting White House budget director Russell Vought.

Three Democratic committee chairmen demanded that Esper and Vought produce documents requested by Democrats by Oct. 15.

The House Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees are investigating Trump’s actions pressing Ukraine to investigate Democratic rival Joe Biden and his son, potentially interfering in the 2020 election. Trump also withheld hundreds of millions of dollars in military assistance to Ukraine.

Democrats say the documents are needed to examine the sequence of events and the reasons behind the White House’s decision to withhold aid appropriated by Congress to counter Russian aggression. The aid was later released.

Quote
Democrats have zeroed in on the State Department in the opening phase of their impeachment investigation. The Intelligence, Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees have already interviewed Kurt Volker, a former special envoy to Ukraine who provided the text messages, and at least two other witnesses are set for depositions this week: Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, and Marie Yovanovitch, who was abruptly ousted as the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine in May.

What we're seeing here are career intelligence officers looking at the GOP's inaction and saying, "fuck this shit".  Instead of 'leaking' to the press they're now making official whistleblower complaints. 

This not only exposes Trump regarding what's happening behind the scenes, but it will place huge pressure on the GOP when it comes to the blanket support they're giving Trump.  There's only so long they can bleat on about deep state conspiracies and "what about the Bidens?"

We all knew Trump's rhetoric would become increasingly hysterical once the walls started closing in.  As Lawrence O'Donnell said, the US defines treason as "giving aid and succour to to an enemy in a time of war"; as things stand, even Trump isn't guilty of treason by that definition, never mind Pelosi.

I'd say Trump's chances of making it to November 2020 are about 50/50.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel on Monday expressed his alarm over the Trump administration’s potential plans to pull out of the Open Skies Treaty, a post-Cold War agreement that allows countries to operate reconnaissance flights over other nations and collect data on military activities with the aim of building trust between countries.

Since coming into force in 2002, the treaty has become a key tool for the U.S. and its European allies to monitor Russian military deployments to former Soviet satellite countries, including Russian aggression in Ukraine. Withdrawing from the treaty could upend this transatlantic alliance, and place Ukraine at greater risk.

A judge has ordered US President Donald Trump to hand over eight years of his tax returns to New York investigators.

The judge rejected arguments by the president's lawyers that Mr Trump enjoyed total immunity while in office.

The ruling helps an investigation into hush money paid to two women who claim they had affairs with Mr Trump.

Prosecutors said in a court filing that every US president since Jimmy Carter had voluntarily released his tax returns before or upon taking office.

In his 75-page decision on Monday, Judge Victor Marrero called the president's claim of immunity "repugnant to the nation's governmental structure and constitutional values", writing that he would not allow a "categorical and limitless assertion of presidential immunity from judicial process".

"The only thing truly absolute about presidential immunity from criminal process is the Constitution's silence about the existence and contours of such an exemption," he wrote.

The president tweeted about the ruling on Monday, claiming that Democrats were "pushing local New York City and State Democrat prosecutors to go get President Trump".

Of course, his response is to use increasingly inflammatory language, designed to whip up a frenzy of emotion-based attack on anyone who calls him out. "Sickeningly mendacious" doesn't even cover it. The man is pure evil.

Still cannot believe he was elected. The mind boggles.

His voters have "taken leave of their senses".

What`s the first thing that happens when you encounter someone?

You look at them with your eyes; what do his supporters see? Everything about his appearance is fake, a performance. That alone should get your alarm bells ringing on the basic level.

Then you listen to what they have to say. If you can navigate your way through his addled, word-salad garbage to appreciate his bottomless pit of hatred for everyone other than himself, there is something very wrong with you.


As for pulling out of Syria and leaving the Kurds to the Turks, would it really surprise you if he sees it in financial terms? Not just the rumoured deals he has with Erdogan, but REDUCING DEFENCE SPENDING = MORE MONEY FOR STUIPID WALL. He`s already raiding their, admittedly extravagant, budget by hook or by crook to fund his vanity project. He`s pissing off the intelligence community and stuff like this must wrankle with the Top Brass. No wonder they`re speaking out.

DONALD TRUMP’S LATE-NIGHT decision to abandon the Syrian Kurds who helped the United States destroy the Islamic State caliphate in Syria prompted a rare outburst of dissent on Monday on the president’s favorite television program, “Fox and Friends.”

Like one comment mentioned, we all have our limits, this presenters limit was possible genocide. The other presenters though, not quite enough for them.

It's a terrible way to live but I tend to shut my eyes to most of the news nowadays as much as possible. Only way to stop being so furious at what is happening in the world. It's either that or run for MP, which I haven't got the energy for.

Trump's recent kick offs against FOX imply he thinks he has the same hold over their viewership that he does over the GOP's base. Oh how Murdoch must have laughed.

US blacklists China organisations over Xinjiang 'Uighur abuse'

Quote
The US has blacklisted 28 Chinese organisations for their alleged involvement in abuses against ethnic Uighurs in China's Xinjiang province.

The organisations are now on the so-called Entity List, which bars them from buying products from US companies without approval from Washington.

The 28 targets include both government agencies and technology companies specialising in surveillance equipment.

China reacted angrily, dismissing the US allegations as groundless.

"There is no such thing as these so-called 'human rights issues' as claimed by the United States," said foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang. "These accusations are nothing more than an excuse for the United States to deliberately interfere in China's internal affairs."

It is not the first time the US has put Chinese groups under a trade ban.

In May, the Trump administration added telecommunications giant Huawei to the Entity List because of security fears over its products.

A Commerce Department filing said the organisations are "implicated in human rights violations and abuses".

Rights groups say Beijing is severely persecuting the mostly Muslim Uighurs in detention camps. China calls these "vocational training centres" to combat extremism.

The Commerce Department said in its decision on Monday that these 28 entities are implicated in "China's campaign of repression, mass arbitrary detention, and high-technology surveillance against Uighurs, Kazakhs, and other members of Muslim minority groups."

Xinjiang province's Public Security Bureau is on the list, along with 19 other smaller government agencies.

Hikvision, Dahua Technology and Megvii Technology are among eight commercial groups on the list, all of which specialise in facial-recognition technology.

Hikvision is one of the largest surveillance equipment manufacturers in the world.

The US and China are currently in the midst of a trade war, and have sent delegations to Washington for a meeting about the tensions later this week.

Targeting China's AI stars

By Karishma Vaswani, BBC Asia Business correspondent

This move by the US will no doubt hurt China's technology ambitions, at least in the short term.

The companies targeted are some of China's biggest tech stars in artificial intelligence - the industry China is staking its future on.

But the processor chips used to train AI algorithms are currently dominated by American firms like Intel and Nvidia.

Increasingly, though, US moves to restrict the American tech available to Chinese companies is prompting China Inc to accelerate its desire for self-sufficiency.

For instance, after Huawei was placed on the US entity list earlier this year - which meant that companies like Google would need to get an export license from Washington before selling to it - the Chinese company said it would start developing its own operating software to embed on its phones.

Chinese alternatives to other US technology are also being developed.

As the US and China's trade war turns increasingly into a battle over technology, consumers will eventually have to choose between all-Chinese and all-American products.

China has launched a massive security operation in Xinjiang, in its far west, in recent years.

Human rights groups and the UN say China has rounded up and detained more than a million Uighurs and other ethnic minorities in vast detention camps, where they are forced to renounce Islam, speak only in Mandarin Chinese and learn obedience to the communist government.

China says those people are attending "vocational training centres" which are giving them jobs and helping them integrate into Chinese society, in the name of preventing terrorism.

There have been increasingly vocal denunciations from the US and other countries about China's actions in Xinjiang.

Last week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo alleged that China "demands its citizens worship government, not God" in a press conference in the Vatican.

And in July more than 20 countries at the UN Human Rights Council signed a joint letter criticising China's treatment of the Uighurs and other Muslims.

Uighurs are ethnically Turkic Muslims. They make up about 45% of the Xinjiang region's population; 40% are Han Chinese.

China re-established control in 1949 after crushing short-lived state of East Turkestan.

Since then, there has been large-scale immigration of Han Chinese and Uighurs fear erosion of their culture.

Xinjiang is officially designated an autonomous region within China, like Tibet to its south.

Gordon Sondland: US envoy skips Trump impeachment probe

Quote
The Trump administration has blocked the US ambassador to the European Union from testifying to a congressional impeachment investigation.

Gordon Sondland was due to meet behind closed doors on Tuesday with staff from three Democratic-led House committees.

But the envoy was directed by the Department of State not to attend.

Mr Sondland was set to be grilled about any role he played in prodding Ukraine to investigating President Donald Trump's political rival Joe Biden.

Quote
In a statement released through his lawyer, Mr Sondland said he was "profoundly disappointed" he would not be able to testify.

"Ambassador Sondland believes strongly that he acted at all times in the best interests of the United States, and he stands ready to answer the Committee's questions fully and truthfully," said the statement.

Unless congress gets a hold of this situation, this will be the end of its subpoena power. No future president will ever respect it again, the precedent will have been set.

It's not the courts, it's congress. Which is, in theory, supposed to be an equal power to the presidency. So much for checks and balances.
