    3. No, Senator Graham is showing excellent judgment. This is not about pulling a few hundred troops out. This is about destroying army of well over 10,000 Kurdish troops who have been keeping ISIS in check. Tina, do you believe ISIS is no longer a threat? Do you believe they will not attack the U.S. again? Do you believe in the tooth fairy? ISIS would love to do a 9-11 type attack again.

    From the Fox interview:

    “Lindsey Graham: The day ISIS surrenders call me. We should be there as long as there’s a threat. I’m not asking for an endless war, Judge. I’m just trying to be smart here…

    Judge Jeanine: So how long have the Kurds and the Turks been fighting?

    Lindsey Graham: Well, do you remember 9-11? Yeah, how long has it been? Yeah, Ok! I think you do. Let me tell you what’s coming our way… Our footprint in Syria is about 1,000. Here’s what you have to recognize. If you ignore the Mideast, it won’t ignore you. September the 10th 2001 we didn’t have any soldiers in Afghanistan, not a dime of aid to the country, not even an embassy. We got attacked anyway.

    So if we pull our few hundred troops out of northern Syria then we’re going to have another 9-11 style attack? Really?”

    Congratulations to the Astros and Nationals in making it to what will be one of the lowest-ratings World Series ever.

    In other news, MLB has requested an emergency njunction and asked for the Yankees and Dodgers be substituted. Writing for the majority, Justice Kavanaugh issued a 4 word opinion. “Suck it. Go Nats!”

  5. Bitterlaw says:

    Graham is right to be concerned.

    Tina supported the troops being there when Trump wanted them there. Now she supports removing them because Trump one freed them out. Our strategic interest remained the same. The only change was Trump’s reckless decision.

  6. lisab says:

    Tina supported the troops being there when Trump wanted them there.
    ————-

    actually tina has consistently supported not having our troops used as mercs

  7. Bitterlaw says:

    Not in this case, lisab. She had no issue with Trump’s original policy. If she did, she never stated it here.

  8. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina is very intelligent and posts almost every day. If she was opposed to Trump’s original policy, she would have told us.

  9. Tina says:

    I have been consistent with the original mission taking out isis. When it changed to being protectors, mercenaries, Marion builders, I said it was wrong.

    When trump bombed Syria in response to Assad’s use of chemical agents, I was not on board. Turns out we still do not know who did it, but assad got blamed for it. When that report turned out to be wrong, it changed my opinion

    Time to get out and let Syria deal with the matter,

  10. Bitterlaw says:

    Sorry, Tina. If you felt that way about the troops deployed there, you did not share it with us.

    I hope your foot is improving and you have less pain.

  11. Tina says:

    Sorry, Bl, you are wrong. You want nation building and that was never the intention. In fact, entering Syria was never debated or voted upon.

    Goober is wrong too.

    Goober is also issuing no subpoenas.

    Not my fault thst Republicans, once they get leadership positions, suck.

  12. Tina says:

    ***if true, a big blow to the “they wouldn’t have invaded if we’d have stayed” narrative. Let’s fake some more abc video too.

    1. A US official with direct knowledge of events tells me that the US has knowledge that Turkey transported Arab militiamen from one part of Syria west of Manbij into Turkey, to then cross back into Syria alongside the Turkish military in order to fight Kurds.
    9:34 AM – 19 Oct 2019

  13. Bitterlaw says:

    When did I say I want nation building?

    You are better than this. Just admit that you never called for a vote on Trump’s original policy for a simple reason. It was Trump’s policy. You liked Trump’s old policy and new policy because you support Trump without question.

    Tina to call me a Jebot (which I have never been) open borders supporter (which I. am not) or supporter of bringing Syrian refugees to the US (which I do not support), or some other inaccurate label in 3…2…1…

  14. Tina says:

    What vote are you referring to?

    He inherited this policy.

    When he bombed Syria (early on in his presidency) in response to alleged chemical weapons by Assad, I was against the response and realized that we needed to get out. Turns out assad was not,the one to use those weapons at the time.

    Trump,mentioned getting out I. 2015/2016; 2017 and a policy change implemented by the nsc happened in 2018.

    So, if you are fine with nation building say so.

    If you are fine with being pkk Bodyguard, say so.

  15. Tina says:

    Goober never answered her.

    Judge Jeanine: So how long have the Kurds and the Turks been fighting?

    Lindsey Graham: Well, do you remember 9-11? Yeah, how long has it been? Yeah, Ok! I think you do. Let me tell you what’s coming our way… Our footprint in Syria is about 1,000. Here’s what you have to recognize. If you ignore the Mideast, it won’t ignore you. September the 10th 2001 we didn’t have any soldiers in Afghanistan, not a dime of aid to the country, not even an embassy. We got attacked anyway.

  16. Tgca says:

    Agree mostly with Tina on this. We tried the nation-building and the bodyguard strategy in the Muddle East and it has failed miserably. Many of the Kurds are good but some are terrorists and should not get the protection of the US so they can continue terrorist activities. Protecting one group over another fuels continued hatred towards the US too.

    Young Americans should not have to sacrifice their health and lives for a region that will probably never change because they’re too full of hate for one another. Our service people come home afflicted with many challenges and then treated badly by poor VA support that the politicians turn their backs on. What is tje benefit here to the US? For a hopeless situation?

    If we want to stop the violence in Syria then bring it to the UN and have many countries send their resources there, not just the US and put the squeeze on all sides. That would have more effect and keep Americans from being at risk there.

    It’s a travesty what is happening to innocent women and children but if the US can’t effect change, why should we be there and risk our service men and only fuel more rage?

  17. Tgca says:

    As for ISIS, we hunt and annihilate them when they attack us. We show no mercy and wipe them out. These scum understand a strong military response and it demoralizes them when we beat them down as it reduces their ability to recruit. We have the technology and means to follow the money trail funding them. We annihilate those funding them too. That is where we should focus our resources. This would require politicians to stand up and take a stance against terrorism, regardless of what the sympathizing MSM or radical left says.

  18. Tina says:

    Looks like all troops out of Syria will be now based in Iraq.

    Afghanistan will be the next removal since Bushobmama botched it there.

  19. Bitterlaw says:

    So Tina was fine with Trump continuing the policy he allegedly campaigned against from January 20, 2017 until three weeks ago. Got it.

  20. Tgca says:

    18

    Good link Tina. I missed that today. So now the GOP preeminent foreign and defense policy leader is praising the strategy of Trump now that he has gotten some more facts and assurances, and believes this course could be more successful than past policy initiatives. Hmmm….

    Sounds like either Graham is drinking the Trump Kool-aid and buys into the potential success strategy ….

    …or Trump got hold of some pics with Lyndsay at a foam party…probably with lil’ Marco of course.

  21. Tina says:

    Tgca,

    Goober is a mess.

    I am not sure what his position is now, or will be tomorrow.

  22. Tina says:

    Bl wants us in Syria to fight turkey, Assad, and the Russians,

    A round robin,

    No objectives.

    No thinking

    Did the yentas in Philly proclaim this?

  23. Tgca says:

    In all honesty, at one time, well over a decade ago, I thought there was a chance to change a region if you brought stability to it through peacekeepers and allowed democracy to flourish. But after watching it play out over the years, I realize, the hatred runs too deep to change many. Folks are indoctrinated from childhood to hate one another and that’s nearly impossible to change under the circumstances regardless of their exposure to outside influences, education, and class level. Look at the 9/11 perps, some were educated in schools in Europe and exposed to long periods outside the daily influence of hate in their regions but that did not change them when they had probably the best opportunity to change and focus their hate towards something more productive in life.

    This reminds me of the extreme violence we see in our worst inner cities. There is only so much time you have to change behavior before it is too late for most. If we can’t change the rage and hate in our own inner cities, how can we expect to change rage and hate in more complex and dictatorial regions of the world with millennia of engrained hatred?

  24. Tgca says:

    To illustrate my point, I think there is a better chance that:

    – Robbie and Jadon will embrace with a big manly hug and become best buds or

    – Bitter will stop going to flower shows and dispose of his cardigan sweaters or

    – LisaB will give up her pursuit of finding more evidence of lil’ Marco at foam parties or

    – SDC will get over his lust for Mitt Romney or

    – Wes will agree to disagree and respect someone other than him can have a legitimate opinion or

    – CG will accept Trump has actually had some major successes that will benefit the US for years to come or

    – Hillary will admit she lost the election because of one person and one person only…Hillary!

    before we will see peace in the Middle East with all this tribalistic behavior and historic hate.

    Not that we Americans should get too cocky about it because we seem to be headed there in some facets ourselves. Does anyone think AOC and Ilhan and Tlaib and the folks that support them will ever find any love for America and it’s contributions to the world? Can they be convinced that America has helped make the world a better and safer place?

  25. Robbie says:

    Josh Kraushaar
    @HotlineJosh

    Signs for GOP alarm:
    — Tillis with lowest job approval of any senator, facing $$ challenge from right
    — Ernst didn’t hit $1M fundraising, approval declining
    — McSally outrased for 3rd straight Q, already down 5 to Kelly

    – Regrettably, it’s only going to get worse. The same warning signs flashed bright red at this point in 2017 and most people ignored them.

    There’s no better version of Trump. He’s become more erratic and his actions are doing great harm to the image of the party and to Republican candidates.

  26. Bitterlaw says:

    Rather than admit she supported the policy she now opposes because she believes anything Trump does is justified, Tina makes up things I never said so she can argue against it.

    American troops would not have to fight anybody in Turkey/Syria if Trump had not F’ed up and changed a policy he had kept in place for nearly 3 years. Tina sees no contradiction in supporting the original policy and the new policy because anything Trump does is justified.

  27. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina supports deploying troops in Turkey/Syria/Kurd area.

    Tina opposes deploying troops in Turkey/Syria/Kurd area.

    Both can be true only because Tina supports everything Trump does.

  28. Tina says:

    Bl has no clue what he is saying.

    Fight everybody.

    Blow sand up.

  29. Tima says:

    This is a lie. Already documented-to be incorrect.

    American troops would not have to fight anybody in Turkey/Syria if Trump had not F’ed up and changed a policy he had kept in place for nearly 3 years

  30. Tina says:

    Anthony Scaramucci just like somebody asking for a challenger to Quittens.

    Yes, scarmaccui, the circus clown liked it,

  31. Hugh says:

    Josh is hopeful like you. 2020 will be a national election like no other. Red states will go red. Not sure about Arizona. Watch Louisiana in a few weeks. I think it’s an easy win for the rep. If so you can take all these polls and shove them where the sun doesn’t shine.

  32. Tgca says:

    Per Drudge:

    Fox’s Wallace says ‘well-connected’ Republican told him there’s a 20 percent chance GOP will vote for impeachment. The person who told him this is well-known GOP.

    That’s absurd! Where does Romney come up with these fake numbers?

    I would like to know which 20 GOP senators will support the 47 Dems/Indies to get to 67 votes needed for removal.

    Removing Trump over legal political acts that have been practiced by many past POTUS would set a new precedent to remove the POTUS because you cant beat them any other way.

    Removing Trump would also result in a UUUUGE backlash against the GOP when the will of 63M voters is discarded. That could take out the GOP for a decade or more as they would lose the confidence of many GOP voters. Every GOP Senator with half a brain knows this, especially when Trump enjoys a 90%+ approval among the GOP consistently and the GOP trust of the media hovers around 15%.

  33. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina has no credibility on this issue. She supported 2 opposing policies because Trump supported 2 opposing policies. Tina claims troops can’t be deployed anywhere without a Congressional vote BUT had no problem with Trump deploying troops for almost 3 years without a vote.

  34. Bitterlaw says:

    I supported Trump’s first policy and opposed the second (opposite) policy.

    Tina supported the first policy AND the second (opposite) policy.

    Who is more objective and who is the sycophant?

  35. Paul says:

    When was the vote allowing Trump to send troops to support Saudi Arabia? I missed that vote.

  36. Tgca says:

    37

    Tina gets my vote!

    I just can’t trust the judgment of a metrosexual dude who prefers cats over dogs, frequents flower shows, and loves Fall and Winter over Spring just so he can wear cardigan sweaters.

    Hugs and kisses always though for my friend Bitter because we have that sewer state bond thing going…only I grew up in the bowels of Newark while Bitter enjoyed the privileged white comforts of Bergen County. But no worries! I harbor no resentment. I’m not jealous of that at all. Nope. Not one bit. Ain’t gonna let it bother me that I got the same one toy for Christmas – a $4 Trouble game like 5 years in a row while Bitter got his bikes and motorized toys and air hockey. I will never resent that. NEVAH! I got to look at pictures of all those neat wonderful childhood toys in the advertisement section of the Star Ledger every Sunday.

    Tina says:

    Romney on CNN now lying that US forces are in Syria to provide stability rather than being honest that the CIA armed and financed rebel groups on the ground to topple Assad – which Romney campaigned on in 2012

    Yes, he must have forgotten about Benghazi.

    Tina says:

    Quittens is on cnn. Demanding that we stay in countries endlessly to prevent war.

    This guy prolly is upset that the Iranian deal got canceled,

    I bet China or ?Iran paid off this Phuker.

  38. Bitterlaw says:

    So lisab found a post of Tina criticizing Romney but not Trump

  39. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Life happens to us all.” Glad to find this out.

    “The only heart attack we should be talking about is the one Wall Street is going to have when Bernie Sanders is president,” said Moore, the filmmaker.
    Nina Turner, one of Sanders’ national co-chairs, said it “boggles my mind” that Sanders’ critics have embraced “ageism.”
    “Life happens to us all,” she said.

  40. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    40. “Yes, he must have forgotten about Benghazi.”

    The lesson of Benghazi is you don’t do nothing and allow people to die.

  41. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    38. “When was the vote allowing Trump to send troops to support Saudi Arabia? I missed that vote.”

    This is a good point. If we are withdrawing from endless wars, why is Trump sending 3,000 troops to Saudi Arable to defend them against Iran?

  42. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina should be in a better mood. The 49ers are 6-0.

  43. jason says:

    Amoral Scumbag wants GOP senators to lose because somehow that “is bad for Trump”.

  44. Bitterlaw says:

    Good for Romney. If I was a Senator AND Trump committed an impeachable offense, I might vote to remove him as well.

    That being said, I do not believe Trump committed an impeachable offense.

  45. jason says:

    Romney is a spineless MSM toadie scumbag.

    But in his defense, there is nothing in that article where he says he will vote to impeach Trump.

    I certainly wouldn’t be surprised if he did so to please his MSM bosses, but it is not in that article.

  46. lisab says:

    you said tina supported the POLICY of keeping troops in syria

    clearly she did not

  47. Tina says:

    He is the worst senator imagineable for us.

    And, with his actions, he needs to be removed from all committee assignments,

    Well past time for Mitchie fo end the charade.

  48. Bitterlaw says:

    The Bears’ QB is playing with some kind of sling on his left shoulder under his jersey.

    Jay Cutler hardest hit.

  49. Tina says:

    I also opposed the 58 or so missile barrage into Syria in early 2017.

    But bitter blinder failed to notice that.

  50. Tina says:

    Well I guess Quittens et al will be upset thst we apparently seized the Syrian oil fields.

  51. Bitterlaw says:

    Lisab – Tina criticized Romney for supporting Trump’s policy. She never criticized Trump for Trump’s policy.

  52. Bitterlaw says:

    If you say you did, I don’t remember you posting it. Maybe you have called Trump a warmonger. It would have stood out more.

  53. Tina says:

    So, Opposing the 2017 missile barrage into sand and an empty Syrian field was s not criticism of trump?

    Got it.

  54. Tina says:

    The Russian hoaxers are upset about this:

    NEW: Per government filing unsealed on judge’s order, former White House counsel Don McGahn and Donald Trump Jr. did not testify before the Mueller grand jury https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/6502875-10-20-19-Unredacted-Doc-Grand-Jury.html

  55. Bitterlaw says:

    So you criticized Trump once in almost 3 years. Such independent thought.

  56. Tina says:

    Bl, you are moving the goal posts.

  57. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The 1,000 U.S. troops being withdrawn from Syria are going to Iraq.

    “Amid growing chaos after Turkey invaded the region earlier this month, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said late Saturday that all of the nearly 1,000 U.S. troops pulling out of northern Syria will now head to western Iraq to continue the campaign against Islamic State militants.”

    Add to that, we are placing 3,000 more U.S. troops in Saudi Arabia. Tina this is a strange way to put a stop to “endless wars.

  58. Tina says:

    So, you now want him to remove all troops too from Iraq?

  59. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    62. Since Turkey has been privately supporting ISIS in both Syria and Iraq, am sure without the Kurds, ISIS will make a comeback in Syria. They can then send fighters into Iraq to take on the U.S. troops now stationed there.

    Meanwhile, Syria and its Iranian troops has been strengthened by are abandoning the Kurds, but we are countering that by putting 3,000 more troops in Saudi Arabia.

    Idiotic is too polite a term.

  60. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    63. No, I am objecting to him withdrawing from Syria in the first place. Hasn’t that been clear from my posts?

  61. Tina says:

    Yes, you are objecting.

    Do we take in the 3 million Syrian refugees that turkey has, plus the 11000 euro isis?

  62. dblaikie says:

    Why San Diego you should be happy that Trump is becoming more prudent. If the decision to go out of Syria was a mistake, it seems to me, that since then Trump has been making the moves that would please you. Positioning the troops in Iraq and Saudi Arabia ought to comfort you.

    In the Middle East there has been no comparison between Obama with his red line and Trump. At least Trump was acting on a long established campaign promise — agree with it or not.

  63. Tina says:

    dont worry, Piglosi and Adam are in Jordan.

    They will resolve everything,

  64. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    66. The U.S. never offered to take in the 3 million Syrian refugees. They are in camps in Turkey, and have been for years. Turkey is trying to push them over the border to ethnically clean out Kurdish areas.

    As far the the 11,000 ISIS prisoners, a substantial amount were being guarded by the Kurds until the U.S. abandoned the Kurds, who had then concentrate on fighting for their own protection.

  65. Tina says:

    So, what was turkey supposed to do with 3 million. Syrians?

  66. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    67. “Why San Diego you should be happy that Trump is becoming more prudent.”

    Trump is not acting prudently, he is totally off the wall. He abandoned an ally that had over 10,000 fighters who did our ground fighting for us. The Syrian government is basically a puppet of Iran; we just gave them a new powerful ally, as the Kurds had no choice but to turn to them– but at the same time we are moving 3,000 U.S. troops to Saudi Arabia to oppose Iran. By the way, believe the Saudi leadership has recently met with Putin, possibly because they realize U.S. policy is in complete disarray.

    There are no major military leaders I know of who support what Trump is doing. Trump has no military background, and is making poor policy decisions through what he refers to as his “gut instincts.”

  67. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    70. Is that a U.S. responsibility?

  68. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    70. Perhaps Turkey should not have been providing aid to ISIS?

  69. Tina says:

    sounds like it’s well past time for turkey to repatriate the Syrian refugees and for the euro isis to go to their countries.

  70. Tina says:

    Sounds like the pkk should not be called terrorists by us, trained Antifa, and took Christian Syrians properties because of their hatred.

  71. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The Kurds were praised by the U.S. in 2017 for protecting Christians:

    “On Wednesday, Vice-President Mike Pence addressed the annual conference of the association In Defense of Christians (IDC), which focuses on the plight of threatened Christian communities in the Middle East.

    “In Iraq, we see monasteries demolished, priests and monks beheaded, the two-millennia-old Christian tradition in Mosul clinging for survival,” Pence told the IDC.

    “In Iraq, the followers of Christ have fallen by 80 percent in the past decade and a half,” the Vice-President warned. “Across the wider Middle East, we can now see a future in many areas without the Christian faith.”

    The next day, State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert praised the Kurds in strong terms for their role in protecting Christians and other minorities in Iraq.

    “Without the Kurds, many of those families would eventually not be able to come home,” she said, responding to a question from Kurdistan 24.

    “The Kurds were a huge part” of the fight against the Islamic State (IS), alongside Coalition and US forces, she said, helping “to protect those persecuted communities.”

    “We will never forget what the Kurds have done,” she concluded.”

  72. Bitterlaw says:

    SDC – NOBODY at HHR has proposed taking in 3 million refugees or 11,000 ISIS fighters. However, Tina keeps claiming the opponents of Trump’s F’ed up second policy support that.

  73. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    75. Tima needs to be reminded that Turkey committed the worst genocide against Christians in the 20th century. They butchered millions of Armenians, Assyrians and Greek Christians.

  74. dblaikie says:

    Why San Diego, even Senator Graham says that now Trump is being prudent.

  75. Tina says:

    There is an interesting quote from NBC:

    …”Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.”…
