Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 17, 2019

Trump's hasty order to withdraw troops left the US military with not enough time or equipment to do it in an orderly fashion. As a result we were forced to send F15s in to bomb our own base and destroy munitions and other equipment we were forced to leave behind. But don't worry, we always seem to be able to find more money to spend replacing military gear.

Obama's decision to avoid the Syrian quagmire now looks (as usual) brilliant.

"Ceasefire, brokered by Pence."

What is it with Pres Trump and Pres Erdogan?

Trump-Erdogan Call Led to Lengthy Quest to Avoid Halkbank Trial

...President Donald Trump assigned his attorney general and Treasury secretary to deal with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's repeated pleas to avoid charges against one of Turkey's largest banks, according to two people familiar with the matter.

In an April phone call, Trump told Erdogan that William Barr and Steven Mnuchin would handle the issue, the people said. In the months that followed, no action was taken against Halkbank for its alleged involvement in a massive scheme to evade sanctions on Iran. That changed when an undated indictment was unveiled Tuesday -- a day after Trump imposed sanctions over Turkey's military operation in northern Syria.

It marked an unusual intervention by a president to get his top cabinet officials involved in an active federal investigation. It's not clear whether Trump instructed Barr and Mnuchin to satisfy Erdogan's pleas or whether the president was simply tired of being asked about it....

In a related story, the DoD will divert additional funds to construction of the Trump Wall, Mexico. Their justification: now that US troops are out of Syria and we don't have to remove equipment stored in-country, there will be billions (billions I say) that can be safely re-deployed to keep brown-skinned folk from our southern states...

Brokered implies a deal was struck. It wasn't

Proffered is the correct term. Pence Proffered a cease fire in the hopes he and trump can save face while abandoning all that tax payer bought equipment

Not to mention all the dead Kurds

This is what witches do when they are hunted down and caught.

Just for fun... someone should tell Trumplethinskin that the "DNC servers" were secretely stashed in a vault on a US military base in Syria... and now they will never see the light of day... which just proves Hillary is crooked and Obama was weak.
