    Just a few minutes ago it was announced on the news via TV that Trump is now reversing his decision with the move Turkey has made. Further, he will be placing severe sanctions on Turkey until they comply and leave.

    This is what happens when you double cross the Don.

    Or did he do it on purpose to see what the other countries would do?

    Yep people can say what they want about him but he doesn't play. He does what he says he will do or at least does his level best to do it. Turkey is going to discover that the hard way. Unlike Obama Trump does not draw imaginary red lines he has not intention of enforcing. Trump does not fake it.

    Turkey violated their agreement.

    Trump never lets that go. As it is for most high stakes businessmen in the business world, a deal is a deal. Violate it and it's no holds barred.

    That was a lot of vague and non descriptive words but yeah sure...that or he saw that his decision was a total disaster and he was getting killed by both sides of the political spectrum. Would have been nice to avoid the damage the last few days caused but let’s talk a big game now after our allies were attacked and a bunch of ISIS holdovers are released back into the wild. This is pure damage control.

    It’s hard to imagine any middle eastern nation trusting us for a long time.

    That would be an insane and destructive game to play.

    I agree with you. Trump got bad advice or else no one in DC expected Turkey to invade. Something is afoot because we sent more men to Saudia Arabia. Was watching Apostate Prophet on YouTube and he is Turkish and just came back from Turkey. He said everyone is broke over there and it is hard times there. Europe is paying Turkey to restrain immigration from Turkey to Europe.

    That thought immediately crossed my mind as well.
