4. yet another example of the complete unreliability of Trump
Rafi ,   US   (10.07.19)
the single WORST executive in modern times...

Meanwhile his right-wing Jewish amen corner in America & Israel (including Bibi) will continue to worship & slobber over this POS....

Nothing new here: read any Trump bio... this crap has been going on for decades: the lies, the failed businesses, the bankruptcies, the lawsuits.

Trump's ALWAYS been all about himself: self-promotion, and self-preservation.

You didn't expect this pattern to change because of some brave Kurdish fighters, did you?
5. And how much is Israel worth?
David Turner   (10.07.19)
Israel's "most supportive president" and "most supportive president" showed his true colors in Charlottesville as "most supportive president" of antisemitic white nationalists.

Diplomatic presents such as recognizing Jerusalem and moving the embassy; recognizing the Golan, etc are a far cry from standing by an ally facing danger.

The Kurds died for "America's war against ISIL and Trump throws them under the bus?

Israel be warned.

Following trumps arguments the costs of us troops in europe and elsewhere are much much higher than what he spends on kurds
Trump can not be trusted .America wake up.

13. Trump and the Kurds
Sjoerd van der Velde ,   Hoorn Holland   (10.10.19)
Dear Steve Benassi, as Trump is behaving more an more idiot, I cannot keep my promise to you, e.g. what he said about the Kurds and 1944, Batle of Normandy. He was not even born in 1944, but in 1946. Those who voted for him in 2016 are selfish idiots. Without their votes he could not become US president. They all are responsible(guilty) They must admit they made the wrong choice then.Hopely they want to learn from their mistakes. There were other choices too. Because of his misbehaviour Trump is the worst US president until know. He gives his country a bad name. How can I have respect, understanding and trust in him? HE MUST RESIGN NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. The mess (in the US) is growing more and more. Because he and the US are interfering/meddling in the internal affairs/business of my country constandly, I have the right to interfere with him and the US, to give my opinions. I prefer to write about a great US president and about a great US. Unfortunately the facts are somewhat differing than that, to put it mildly as possible. My own country also is not perfect either, but what country is? Because the US is such a powerful, influential and wealthy country, it"s politics is to be noticed (partly) worldwide, as the US interfering/meddling to other countries, the danger of playing the boss over smallercountries. The US liberated Europe in 1944/1945 not only of their pity/sympathy for those countries. They also did it for national interest, to take the power from Hitler and from Japan in Asia, to become a worldpower/superpower all over the world, for controling and ruling. No country is capable to do that in reality completely. The world is too big and there are too many people.. We must workt together on the basis of equality and equality in value for a better wold and a future for all of us.
14. Trump and the boundaries of US power, influence and wealth.
Sjoerd van der Velde ,   Hoorn Holland   (10.11.19)
"To costly to back the Kurds",perhaps any other people/friend. It can mean that the US is no longer capable, invinceble or allmighty. Perhaps it is all becoming too much for the US.They cannot control and rule the entire world and humankind alone (anymore). The US became a worldpower/superpower just after 1900. Between the US, Russia, China and India there is a fierce competition to become the most powerful superpower.Not any country is capable to control and to rule the world by himself/alone. Some countries are/can only become regional powers, like Brasil,Nigeria and maybe Israel. Of course the nuclear weapons arsenals of several countries is more than enough to destroy humankind and the planet several times.A country does not only need to be destroyed militarily in a war. It also can be completely bankrupt, also a form of destruction. Equality of people and countries maybe can be a solution to many world issues and improvements.
