Sec of Defense: Turkey appears to be committing war crimes

This was 100% avoidable none of this had to happen.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Sunday that Turkey “appears to be” committing war crimes in its incursion into northern Syria.

“It appears to be,” Esper agreed on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday when host Margaret Brennan described some of Turkey’s actions against Kurdish forces as war crimes, including footage appearing to show the summary execution of Kurdish captives.

“It’s a very terrible situation over there, a situation caused by the Turks. Despite our opposition, they decided to make this incursion,” Esper said

And Trump is complicit in said war crimes. There was every indication this would happen when we chose to abandon our allies. As always though, Trump will side with the strongman who can personally benefit him in some way.

The consequences of Trump wingin’ foreign policy.

Zero time for our forces or allies to prepare because of Trump’s whimsy.

The Kurds were holding 12,000 ISIS fighters, some of whom have already escaped. Not good at all. No telling what the repercussions might be.

Guarantee you Republicans will be calling for that once a Democrat is in the White House. After all, who has time for progressive policies when we constantly need to spend all of our time cleaning up the messes they leave us?

If Democrats hadn’t chosen such a weak candidate, like Hillary Clinton, in 2016 then none of this would be happening right now.

don’t worry the WH told us they can’t get in to America because of the ocean.

They probably won’t come here, but that doesn’t mean they won’t kill our troops over there.

When does the President’s great an unmatched wisdom kick in and he retaliates economically against Turkey?
