    It's some kind of resolution. I mean, it's better than killing all the Kurds.

    However, what's the plan for handing over 12,000 ISIS members and 38,000 of their family members? The Kurds are supposed to leave before Turkey comes in. How many ISIS guys get out in the process?

    Since Russians have already taken over US bases I'm sure they'd be only to glad to take responsibility for Securing ISIS. Oh wait. Weren't the Russians there before ISIS? Shit.

    Russians are busy drinking your Coca-Colla. And no, ISIS was there first and the reasons russians came to help Assad is that they did not want US created ISIS to overrun Syria. At least this is what John Kerry said when he was Secretary of State.

    Meanwhile, Turks reject claim, Kurds weren't even involved! It seems Pence over stated significance of the nominal agreement.

    And... as I said... Kurds accuse Turks of violating ceasefire.

    A spokesman for the Kurdish forces, Mustafa Ali, said on Twitter that Turkey continued to pound civilian areas and a hospital, despite the announcement on Thursday night by Mr. Pence that there would be a five-day pause in the fighting.

    Responding to the claims that Turkey had violated the truce, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan denied that any fighting was continuing.
    This is more predictable than a Michael Bay film.

    Technically speaking, if you're just bombing people who can't respond to your bombings, it's not really a fight.

    The so called 5 day cease fire isn't even happening. No surprise there.

    I'm sorry, but Pence already had a news conference declaring victory, so clearly the people claiming to dropping bombs and the people claiming to be getting hit by bombs are crisis actors hired by left wing zealots like Joe Biden's son in order to embarrass Trump and illegally influence the 2020 election.

    Also, Benghazi.

    Leftists also want to dismantle our military. What happens if we do that? Open season on the U.S.! Putin especially would love to attack us if we gutted our military down to the bare bones.

    So sorry progressives, we will NEVER let you traitors gut our military and allow us to get slaughtered.

    The argument from leftists is, "No one attacks us! We don't need this bloated military!" The irony is they don't realize our big military budget is what allows us to not be attacked.

    Leftists are some of the dumbest people in the world. They also claim the threat of Russia in the 80's was propaganda. They claim Russia never wanted to attack us.

    It is interesting that you didn't say the left is the dumbest. I guess that means the right is dumbest. Congratulations on a hard-fought victory. I can tell with every post you are putting in a lot of effort. You should get an award.
