  1. Turkey has already announced that this is ONLY a pause, not a ceasefire.

      @Dave Greene if a black woman is seriously under weight where it could cause health issues than that is obvious DJT’s fault as well.

      @Crystal Giddens nice opinions, not a very popular one though. It’s called finishing a job.

      @Alexander Cartier It is not my opinion that Gen Flynn stated America had created a policy of *”continuous conflict.”*
      I separated my opinion from the demonstrable facts and the facts show we had no intention of “finishing the job” (Not before Trump got elected). Not any time soon.The evidence is clear. 20 yrs and how many wars?

  2. 1. Create/fabricate a crisis
    2. “Solve” the crisis to appear being a hero.
    3. Make sure the population feels “under attack” by an external threat.

    Those are just a few tips from the “So You Want to be a Dictator” handbook.

    • @C A
      Reminds me, President Trump did say he “loves people with low IQs.” (Pretty close.) And, that is sad.

      I’d like to point out that there are two types of intelligence.
      Intelligent Quotient, IQ and Emotional Quotient, EQ.
      If a person didn’t grow up and form a healthy, well balanced EQ, their IQ does little to help them in life, for most people.
      However, some do succeed. Even those with low IQs and low EQs succeed but largely because they inherited money.

      If they haven’t been set up with financial guidance, etc., via their parents, they will have financial difficulties by constantly losing money to bankruptcy.
      Wise parents set up trust funds to ensure that doesn’t happen.

      This is one example of how low IQ-EQ interferes in these people’s lives. As well, many other factors may be involved.

      I am not exceptional! No way. However, I am special and so is everyone which obviously includes you!
      Don’t ever let anyone tell you different!
      We are all unique expressions of God, a spark of God and beloved children of God.

    • Pat Hunnicutt Well you are ignorant of history aren’t you? I bet you think 9/11 occurred under Obama too. 🙄 HINT: Look further back before the Obama administration for the true answer about ISIS. It’s ignorance like yours that fuels hate based on lies. You suit being a Trump supporter because that’s exactly what Trump does too.

  3. And yada yada ya!!….. you don’t get praise for intentionally starting a fire, then after complaints “putting out” the fire.

    • @Bill Frazier Turkey said it’s not a ceasefire it’s a pause

    • @Akeem Haye they can call it whatever. They are not fighting and we are not over there anymore. How is this bad for the United States ?

    • @Bill Frazier think further than just today. This is not a permanent solution not is it really a solution at all.

      Bill frazier let’s see .. .how is this not a bad thing.. the slaughter if 25 to 35 million kurds. The possible resurgence of isis. No Nation ever trusting our word again . Giving Russia what they wanted …thats all

    • This is some real embarrassing desperation on display here.

  4. Charlotte Slaughter | October 17, 2019 at 4:27 PM | Reply

    Trump created this situation due to lack of knowledge and leadership.

  5. There no cease fire they just renewing thier supplies

    • Pat Peacock : And, clearing the way for the Americans to get out, without running into hostiles, or having to prevent any atrocities, right? They’re waiving the atrocities for when the US is out of the way. . . Like it’s all, “fine,” now the damage is done? Putin’s biggest coup in the Middle East

    • Vassos Eliades : They’re just making way for the US to get out, and not, “compromising,” them, by committing their planned atrocities right ion front of them. Our troops might be tempted to defend their allies, or report what they see? It’s all gong to Putin’s plan

    • Kaan Yagizer : You’re a Turkish soldier are you? The ceasefire’s given you time to go on social media? Trump Trolls are really kinda’ weird . . . Smh

    • C A he is Turkish. And you are an Americant clown

    • Ash Roskell Turkish soldiers do not have time to go on social media, Americunt clown

  6. Christine McGill | October 17, 2019 at 4:29 PM | Reply

    Turkey already anounced this isn’t a cease fire!!

    • Sui_Jay : Never discuss politics, ever again, son. You are unfit

    • Lima Tango : Trump supporters PRETEND to, “believe.” They got past actual, “belief,” in Trump on Inauguration Day. The ones who are foreign and on the payroll, are just Gravity Deniers, spending their lives avoiding the possibility of hearing the phrase, “We Told You So,” from the lips of a, “Liberal,” which is anyone not drinking the Orange Koolaid

    • Ash Roskell dumbocrats have no shot in 2020. Get ready to cry again, clown.

    • The Foreign: Really? Is that because Trump and his goons will have been REMOVED, as the MAJORITY of America is demanding? Fine by me. I’m a Conservative anyway, son. So long as Trump and goons are gone . . . 😉

    Turkey……”It’s not a ceasefire, it’s a pause”……

  8. BS. He handed their country over to Turkey and the russians. He sent a mob boss styled letter with all the elegance of a 1st grade writing project. Smoke and mirrors is all you see from the administration.

    • The Kurds do not have a country. The US is not at war with Syria, why should it occupy their territory to begin with?

    • Northern if you are a strong nation you are expected to protect those who are not, like you protect your young brother or sister.

    • @Lofoten When has that ever happened in History? Specific examples please

    • Joseph Miller it’s not the even the whole country, clown. It’s a 20 mile strip along the border. Also ypg/pkk are terrorists. They killed thousands of Turks inside Turkey over the last several decades. So the USA should support terrorists more than a nato ally who it has an air base inside their country (Turkey)? That is ridiculous.

  9. More lies from this circus administration!
    War continues and children are being slaughtered!

  10. He’s so proud of solving a problem his boss caused

  11. “Last week my dad lit our house on fire. today, under the decisive leadership of my dad we put out that fire. Amazing?!?! We’ve never seen anything like this before!”

  12. They start the Trumpster fire, then they pretend to overturn the disastrous decision, so it looks like they’re saving the world from the  Trumpster fire.

    • TRUMPSTER FIRE!!! nice

    • Let’s see how this holds. There is a chance that Trump will screw this up with a tweet. And then there is the question of what the US gave up for this 120 hour cease fire/pause and whether it was worth it. And then there is the possibility that Trump becomes jealous as suspicious of Pence for his more favorable performance on tv.

  13. Why wasn’t the “ceasefire” negotiated when Donnie did “the deal”-iresponsible fools.

    • There was no deal.

    • Your Worst Nightmare - Facts | October 17, 2019 at 7:11 PM | Reply

      You mean no cease fire?

    • Dirty Donnie’s “deals” are worth what Donnie is perpetually _full of_ .

    • Nick Taylor : Because this is just a way to get the US out of the way, so they can get on with the slaughter. The troops in our units are not naive. They KNOW what’s about to happen to these friends, brothers in arms, they’re leaving behind. When they last chopper leaves, with the last Americans on board, the slaughter resumes in earnest . . .

  14. Oh Hurray – a ceasefire of the conflict that Trump started with his stupidity. Phah!!

    • A conflict that was underway for 5 years. Last time Turkey invaded was in 2018 but you american liberals didn’t care back then nor did you know what a “kurd” was. Only now you complain because it happend after Trump did something.

    • Doug Leschak Turkey have confirmed it’s not a ceasefire.

    • Can we atleast agree that this isn’t a ceasefire?

    • @Sebelbub Always cared. Always knew.
      So don’t give us your BS Trump propaganda lies. Cadet Bone-spurs claimed the victory over ISIL for himself – but 10,000 Kurds died for that victory and now the scum in the WH has stabbed them in the back.

    • Sebelbub Sebelbub You are repeating that lying megalomaniac Trump. Here are a few facts, feel free to check them! 1)The Kurds have been helping the USA much longer than 5 years in reality – it’s only the ISIS conflict that has been 5 years. 2) It was the USA who called on Kurds to help them, not the other way around. 3)Everytime USA has asked Kurds to help them the Kurds have never refused. 4)The Kurds did the lion’s share regarding ISIS captures, that’s why they lost a staggering10,000 of their people. 5) Trump comes along and stabs them in the back and gives ISIS a get out of jail free card so all those deaths are for NOTHING. 6.) Trump is a traitor, a prolific liar and is not mentally fit to make such decisions.

  15. His mouth is moving. The smell is awful

    • @Jack J you read the comment. Is it a scratch and sniff? Don’t forget to wash your hands.

    • ‘TDS’…
      ‘Trump’s Damnable Schemes’.
      Too bad *everyone’s* ‘onto him’ now.
      *Every* state, *every* bank, *every* insurance company and *every* country that #45’s *lied to* in his filings *ARE* ‘comparing notes’…and *finding* ‘faults’.
      And *soon* #45’s life becomes…a *neverending nightmare* of litigations and losses. 💸📑👋

    • Ray Lucas : These American units, pulling out, KNOW this pause is only for the sake of them getting out of the way, so the slaughter can resume, as soon as they’re gone. Imagine how it feels to be in one of those US units, right now. They have made friendships, gotten to KNOW these people. And they KNOW what’s coming . . . Smh

    • What do the Kavanaugh hearings, Jussie Smollett, the Covington kids, the Mueller investigation, and now the Trump phone call all have in common? Answer: Staged melodrama, media collusion hysteria, progressive demands that justice be served immediately, promises of walls-are-closing-in blockbuster revelations from new witnesses, supposed surprise revelatory documents, fusions between Democratic politicians and Washington bureaucrats — and then bust, nada, and teeth-gnashing as the truth catches up to various rumor-mongers. Again: It’s called TDS, and it’s real.

  16. This is amazing. He is acting like he conquered Turkey. All hail Caesar.

  17. Like pitching a tent in the eye of a hurricane.

    • biddyc : It’s only a pause for getting the Americans out of the way, so they don’t witness what’s coming, or feel tempted to defend their erstwhile Allies. Once we’re out of the way, they will resume

  18. He has a bigger plug up his butt than Trump does.

  19. He’s a liar just like his boss.

  20. Hypocrite and lying snake pence. He’s such a disgusting creature before God’s eyes.
