How many Kurds did Trump airlift out when he yanked the troops out of Syria in 2019?
Zero, to the best of my knowledge (and googling skills just now). President Biden has evacuated over 28,000 people out of Afghanistan so far. He could have pulled a Trump and just gotten the troops out of there. But he didn't. He's trying to make the best of a horrific situation. He's trying to do the right thing, like he always does.
Why the difference in the two presidents' troop withdrawals? Because Joe Biden has a heart and a soul and Trump has neither.
Media an embarrasing stain on the USA & MSM has lost all credibility.
I will never believe American media again.
And the Peshmerga are STILL fighting with US soldiers in Iraq... Most of "Kurdistan" is in Iraq.
Trump pulled US forces away from the Turkish border region.
president than I was at that disgraceful moment. I wish we could get the Kurd fighters to safety to try to right that wrong.
I simply detest the Orange Stain for leaving the Kurds behind. I was so ticked I put a sign on my car saying "American Does Not Leave Anyone Behind. Call your Congressman NOW!!!"
"American Does Not Leave Anyone Behind." I have never been as angry with tfg than I was when he abandoned the Kurds.
But Erdogan was pleased. Guess that's the important thing.
The Kurds were fighting as hard as they could, and Trump just hung them out to dry. The press lingered on this - until the next Trump atrocity captured their attention.
But Biden did what nobody else had the cojones to do and it's being wrung out for every drop of drama and condemnation that is possible. I expect Benghazi-like hearings over this.
wanted to leave their homeland. We'll never know now.
