Trump claims he has ended the U.S. involvement in “ancient sectarian conflict” yet his Evangelical base prey for the start of the Great Tribulation and the War of Armageddon! ISIS has it End of Days scenario that the two Love Doves just reborn, and enhanced! They must see themselves as invincible.
Putin wanted in on the Battle of Dubiq where ISIS said it would fight its Apocalyptic War. I believe Putin talked Trump into believing his place in history was bringing our troops home. Abandoning the Kurds was a huge problem. I believe Erdogan ALSO worked our Elmer Gantry, our P.T. Barnum, Showman Braggart.
“You need a BIG VICTORY parade!”
The betrayal of the Kurds was not supposed to happen till next October, but the Whistleblower put an end to this reelection time table – that I believe Putin suggested, in private – when Trumped thanked him for getting him in the WH. What I am saying, Traitor Trump was going to climb atop the bodies of fallen warriors, and give a political speech. Putin and Erdogan – laughed at Their Fool.
“You deserve a BIG VICTORY parade!”
The second I see a retreating Kurdish fighter being mowed down by Satan Erdogan, I will put and end to all of Christianity by revealing the truth about the ‘Virgin Birth’. God is ready to administer His – TOUGH LOVE!
In this video you will see a man from California fighting ISIS. There are American volunteers who will not desert their – real friends! Erdogan did not want the U.S. and our allies, the Kurds, to look good by finishing off ISIS. He is a Muslim leader that hates the history of the Crusaders and the Kurds. He was afraid of a popular movement overthrowing him – which almost happened! Ergodan got JUST WHAT HE PRAYED TO ALLAH FOR! He squealed for joy when his buddy Putin told him they put A TRAITOR in the White House!
“Can we get this chump to go on Crusade against the Democrats?”
“No problem! I told him he was a ‘Strategic Genius’ who knew more than all the Democratic appointed Generals – as well as the U.S. State Department. “The FBI and CIA are conspiring to take away your Victory Parade when you bring the troops home. Then, it’s off to Jerusalem to break ground for the U.S. Holy Temple!”
“Don’t let the secular Democrats take away YOUR VICTORIOUS ENTRANCE into the City of David! You are the World’s Greatest Winner! Listen to the evangelical leaders – if you doubt me! Your base thinks your God!”
“So true! I can’t wait to have my parade!”
John ‘The Prophet’
Russia has recently increased its support for the SDF, announcing the establishment of a military base in the Kurdish canton of Afrin. If Russia participates, the role of regime forces and Iran-backed militias is unclear, but they have tried to reach Raqqa from the southeast in the past.
The Middle East ceasefire, Trump said Thursday night, was the product of ‘a gentleman’ – Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan – seeing his own self-interest after ‘a little tough love’ in the form of a week of armed conflict.
The first domino to fall was the president’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from northern Syria, which gave Erdogan an open field to march southward.
‘American combat troops should not be at the center of ancient sectarian conflict all over the world,’ he said Thursday. ‘Bring our soldiers back home!’
He struck a somber tone describing the American death toll from what he called ‘stupid, senseless, endless wars.’
“In a gruesome video released November 2014, showing the beheading of American aid worker Peter Kassig along with 16 Syrian soldiers, the masked militant known as “Jihadi John” says to the camera, “Here we are, burning the first American crusader in Dabiq, eagerly waiting for the remainder of your armies to arrive.”
That invocation of Dabiq was significant: In ISIS’s apocalyptic propaganda, the otherwise unremarkable Syrian town of Dabiq was to be the site of a showdown with “Rome,” the Christian invaders of the Middle East, which was to immediately precede the conquest of Constantinople, and then the Day of Judgment. ISIS named its English-language magazine after the city, which it captured in the summer of 2014, and heavily fortified the town, despite it having little strategic value. But in October 2016, ISIS lost Dabiq after a short battle with Turkish-backed rebels. The Day of Judgment hasn’t happened yet.
‘Who is the whistle-blower?’ Trump demanded. ‘We have to know! Is the whistle-blower a spy?’
‘Dumb’ Beto O’Rourke, he said, tone-deafly ‘pledged to revoke the tax-exempt status of many churches and religious charities’ after saying ‘”We’re going to take your guns away”.’
O’Rourke had said churches that refuse to perform same-sex marriages should lose federal tax benefits afforded to other nonprofit organizations. He also warned that if he were president, owners of AR-15s and other military-style rifles would lose them.
Turkey is trying to put the brakes on the US’s next big move against ISIS — but Obama isn’t having it
The US and Turkey rarely see eye to eye these days.On Monday, Turkey’s deputy prime minister, Numan Kurtulmus, told reporters that Ankara wants the US-led anti-ISIS coalition to wait to move on Raqqa, the jihadist group’s de facto capital in Syria, until after the operation to dislodge the group from its Iraqi stronghold, Mosul, is completed.
The announcement came as the US prepares for an imminent move on Raqqa, which defense officials feel would be more successful if it overlapped with the Mosul offensive that began two weeks ago. It also highlights the growing disconnect between American and Turkish interests in Syria, where Ankara has been working to halt the advances of Kurdish anti-ISIS militias that Washington is actively empowering.
Turkey’s request to hold off on Raqqa likely has to do with the resources it has committed to the Mosul fight and its opposition to seeing the Syrian city liberated by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces — an overwhelmingly Kurdish opposition alliance that includes Arabs, Assyrians, and Turkmen fighters.
The US appears ready to move forward with the offensive on Raqqa anyway — Defense Secretary Ash Carter told NBC last week that the battle will begin “in the next few weeks.” The administration claims, however, that it still doesn’t know who will lead the fight.
Defense officials told The Daily Beast last week that the Kurdish People’s Protection Units, or YPG — which makes up the majority of SDF fighters — will help isolate Raqqa but will not enter the city itself.
Another official told The Washington Post that “this is one of the situations in which we have contacts and influence over all the actors. But we’re not in perfect control.”
But Lt. Gen. Stephen Townsend, commander of US-led operations against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, told reporters last week that “the only force that is capable” of taking Raqqa in the short term “are the Syrian Democratic Forces, of which the YPG are a significant portion.”
The US and Turkey have reportedly begun training Arab opposition fighters to take part in the Raqqa battle, but Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on the US to drop “terrorist organizations” like the PYD and YPG from the operation altogether.
Turkish warplanes carried out 26 airstrikes on SDF positions in northern Syria on October 20 that killed dozens of Kurds, and Turkey has indicated that it will not hesitate in attacking them as they continue to consolidate territory and influence.
The Kurds, however, are the most capable forces fighting ISIS on the ground in Syria, and abandoning them now would likely be detrimental to the overall campaign to defeat the jihadists.
