... and the U.S. forces out of Syria so that his new 3rd best pal Erdogan (after Putin and the Saudi prince of the bone-saw) has a free hand to subdue the Syrian Kurds.

A plate for a people what a fraud of a deal!
2. Eisnkot cannot be blamed for 'overreacting'...EVER! :-) zzzz
3. United States, US exit from abroad

Mister Israeli Chief of Staff Gadi Eisenkot, in this case, is completely right, at my opinion, after having read this article. He has no interest to lie about theory, practice and reality for Israel. He is a military, army professional, to protect his people. Also security and peace for the Jewish, Israeli people and Israel, as goes for any other country.
4. Trump's new tweet
N ,   N   (12.23.18)
"When President Obama ingloriously fired Jim Mattis, I gave him a second chance. Some thought I shouldn’t, I thought I should. Interesting relationship-but I also gave all of the resources that he never really had. Allies are very important-but not when they take advantage of U.S."
5. Three cheers for the right.

Our forever prescient right wing plus our messianic Jews have yet again got it right. Trump will be good for Israel.
Thank goodness we can rely on their wisdom and strategic know- how to make Israel one of the strongest and most loved countries in the world.

Trump pulling out of Syria will have huge impact on the Russians. They Are going to have to change their strategy and add more troops. The mullahs now will have to add more of their own idiots to cover for what Valdi and the orange cone are not willing to sacrifice anymore. Assad now has to recruit more for his own army. Trump is not afraid of changing his mind in the last minute, because he simply does not care about image or legacy. He deals with it just like the way he does with his business. No deal until I sign on the dotted line! The Turk now also needs to really go to work and Spread iteslef across Syria running after his beloved Kurds. I could be wrong, but this is another way to look at it.

“It’s all about the system and then the reinforcing mechanisms to make that change enduring. Without a system, things fall apart when the leader moves on,” Shanahan continued. “The system or the environment shouldn’t be dependent on the leader’s presence.”
“It’s very easy in a complex environment like this to get distracted. The tactical can consume an enormous amount of time,” he added. “But my job is really to drive change at scale and there’s a formula for doing that. And the formula really has to do with change [which] must be systemic.”
9. US enemies are thrilled
