Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has a very low-key approach to defending the President against a vicious assault by out of control Democrats, has taken a strong stand against getting out of endless wars and leaving a thousand soldiers in harm’s way as the crazed Turks march into Syria to fight the crazed Kurds who are now protected by the crazed Assad forces.
McConnell blasted the President in an op-ed for the far-left Washington Post.
“Withdrawing U.S. forces from Syria is a grave strategic mistake,” McConnell wrote. “It will leave the American people and homeland less safe, embolden our enemies, and weaken important alliances.”
But…but, Mitch, what about our borders with all those anonymous people pouring in?
McConnell added: “Sadly, the recently announced pullout risks repeating the Obama administration’s reckless withdrawal from Iraq, which facilitated the rise of the Islamic State in the first place.”
He has NO SUCH ANGST about the U.S. border, only the Syrian border!
The Sinoloa cartel unleashed a furious gun battle with Mexican forces just to the south of our border this week over the arrest of El Chapo’s son. The Mexicans gave in and let El Chapo’s vicious son go free. Does any of this penetrate the weak minds of our politicians, ever?
When will they start trusting this President?
We have a thousand of our soldiers safe to the south of the fighting and not mowed down; there is a cease-fire; the people who should be dealing with the problem are; and Turkey is our ally — REMEMBER MITCH??? Also, we never promised the Kurds we would fight to win a country for them, especially not on the border of their mortal enemies country.
We also armed the Kurds pretty heavily and they were paid.
There are negatives, of that there is no doubt, but we need to stop fighting endless wars throughout the world when our country is being invaded by cartels and probably plenty of terrorists.
The Kurds have control of social media and have been crying that the cease-fire didn’t work, which isn’t the case. But the lapdog media and the angry politicians take it all on face value.
And, hey, what about those warmongering Democrats, huh? What happened to their make love, not war slogans? They gave up on peace a long time ago. Never forget Libya.
Where was the concern when 30,000 Kurds died under Barack Obama’s watch?
As many as 30,000 Christian Kurds were massacred on Obama's watch. 6 year old boys beheaded. And you people said nothing.
You didn't GAF then, and you really don't GAF now.
Move on to some other political football. This ain't it for you.

As Trump said, no more American lives should be lost to the centuries-long dispute in the Middle East.
President Trump: “American combat troops should not be at the center of ancient sectarian conflicts all over the world.”

The Senate Majority Leader should be concerned about our civil rights. We’re losing them. If Trump loses them, we all lose them.
