    The US cant do fuck all with out help, if the US wants to go in on there own next time, I got one word for them ( Vietnam ) the US has NAVER won a war on there own not one, so if the US think next time will be different LOL NO it fucking wont. If other country's stop selling military stuff, the US wont have any Tanks - Jets - Ships - Drones - missiles. the US buys more Tech - Software - Hardware then any other country in the top 10. The US needs others more then others need the US.

    While most of the time I've found what Trump has done laughable, it feels really bad to be laughing at leaving the kurds to be steamrolled by Turkey. A country by all western standards, who doesn't respect human rights and who is constantly edging towards a dictatorship... If any country deserves to be tossed out of Nato, turkey is the one so long as Erdogan remains in power...

    Rather than Kurdish fighters that helped the U.S. to defeat ISIS, what we have is the next: U.S. sponsored and armed rebels to oust Bashar Alazar for the sake of U.S. and other Western allies, after some time most of these rebels ended up opposing Western interests and forming ISIS, then U.S. declared ISIS was terrorist and U.S. had to look for others allies within Syria. The only ones that U.S. could find were the Kurds, whom were courted by the promise of get a independent State away Syria, something that everybody knows that was lawfully impossible and that Turkey would never allow it because for the point of view of Turkey the PKK and the Kurdish armed forces are terrorists. Turkey is a very important strategic ally for the NATO, so Trump had to choose between protect Kurds, dismember NATO and turn Turkey into an enemy (the only NATO member that has true influence in Middle East), or abandon Kurds, that paradoxically is the best option to get the peace in Syria, because Kurds have been forced to negotiate with Syria government to reach agreements and join their forces to expel the common enemy (the Turks).

    The Russians told Trump that America's real enemy is COBRA -- a ruthless terrorist organization DETERMINED TO RULE THE WORLD -- and that he should pull out of Syria to carry the fight to COBRA. To take on Serpentor and his ilk, Trump has already directed that $200 million from the Pentagon's service member healthcare budget be diverted on an emergency basis to building up our country''s daring, highly-trained special missions force (codenamed: GI JOE).

    A former klan member once said the klan meetings were so full of hate he could cut it with a knife. He had to leave because it was eating him up inside. Day in and day out living with obsessive, irrational hate. Day after day scheming to hurt people who frankly didn't give a damn about him. Powerless, self-destruction.

    2039: Russia invades Poland. Trump: we will send our best tweets to call for peace!* --- So, is NATO going to be abandoned because we know that we can't trust USA? *in 1939 UK and France were obligated to start war with 3rd Reich. UK sent their bombers full of... leaf letters calling for peace. Poor Brits needed some carrots to improve their eyes enough to realise that they were not bombs, but then it was too late for Poland. France attacked but then got scared of some border police so they retreated and started "phoney war". That is one of major source of distrust in Polish people towards NATO. Now if we add USA to countries that are known not to help their allies, things start looking grim.

    People are missing the big picture here. Trump obviously does not believe in meddling in a border dispute that has going on for centuries. He has argued that middle east wars are a waste of money and does not achieve anything. Maybe one day the peoples in the middle east can sit down and have a last peace agreement; this is what happened in Europe after WW2. I am sorry for the Kurds but Trump is wise to not get involved in a war between Turkey and Syria. I am no fan of Trump but I understand his reasoning, he has explained himself very clearly in his own entertaining way.

    Leave Donald Trump alone. I feel sorry for him having so many people hate him when all he’s done is try to help us all. He’s done so many things to make America Great again. We are all richer now. And this rubbish about Donald Trump lying is fake news. Not one person has any evidence of just one lie he’s told but the fake news is saying he has lied over 17,000 times since he’s been President. And no one can tell me that any other president has done as much as Donald Trump. Trump for 2020.

    Im not even going to watch this video I just wanted to comment that Steven Colbert has really gone downhill with his hard on for anything related to trump. Got a few laughs from the boss on chopper talk and now he wont drop it. It is insane that you think doing the same bits again and again is going to net you a larger audience. Steven, your impressions suck and your content is lacking. Your forced laughter from the audience is like watching reruns of scooby doo. Boring.

      @Hungry Estonian People who disagree with you aren't "insane". Also, I support global communism, so I'm not a Trump supporter. Nonetheless, the fact remains Trump is indisputably dismantling the American empire by pulling the U.S. out of the Middle East and southeast Asia and Latin America, one step at a time. To say otherwise is probably due to extreme attachment to social issues or whatever pet hatred one has that ignores the benefits of Trump's new foreign policy.

      Trump isn't anti-war, he created more war by allowing Turkey to invade with their Al-Qaeda militias who have already freed almost 2000 ISIS fighters. Trump didn't even initially evacuate US troops back to the US just moved them from North to South so Turkey could invade, he only pulled them out after Turkey fired at US positions and told them to get out of their way. After he pulled out 1000 US troops from Syria because he's Erdogan's pet he sent a further 3000 US troops in Saudi Arabia to help them continue their genocidal war in Yemen. How can you deny reality like this? I don't like Obama or the Democrats either but you Trump supporters are absolutely insane and in complete denial.

    Clinton abandoned the Kurds. Bush 2 did nothing for the Kurds. Obama did nothing for the Kurds. U.S. policy has never been to help every possible nationality, no matter how small, achieve self-determination. The U.S. has never ever been in support of self-determination. No rational government could be. You think the Kurds deserve a homeland? Then you think Jews do, Nazis do, American southern white supremacists do, black supremacists do, etc. If government were tied to race, then we'd all be screwed. Stop blabbing about issues you don't think through, New York & Hollywood. Jeebus Cripes, now American liberals are war hawks? Totally ridiculous anti-Trump nonsense. Talk about policy, not people, otherwise you look stupid.

    The US (and Great Britain) has a long history of betraying and abandoning our allies, going back at the very least to the Arab Revolt we fomented against the Turks in WW1, and including South Vietnam, and the Iraqi resistance in Gulf War 1... but the Kurds aren't fighting ISIS on our behalf, they're doing it to preserve their culture's existence.
