In what is perhaps the single dumbest statement from a man who makes many dumb statements, President Trump tried to justify his utterly terrible decision to let Turkey attack the Kurds by saying, “It’s not our border.”
News alert… terrorists don’t care about borders.
The Kurds were the only thing keeping ISIS and Islamic terror groups in check. And without the Kurds, ISIS will certainly be reborn and regrow their terror campaign against the West and America.
When ISIS and Islamic terror groups are cheering your decision, you know you’ve made a terrible, terrible decision. Years from now when Americans die in a terror attack, you can point to this decision as to the start of it.
It would be nice if the problems on other continents stayed there but that’s not how terrorism works. Sure, we can’t solve all the world’s problems but terrorism is a threat to our national security and something we can’t ignore.
And this case was so particular stupefying because we weren’t even doing the fighting. The Kurds were. Ask yourself… how is America safer by weakening the main group fighting ISIS?
