Trump needs to grow a set.
I don't disagree, politicians in general do what is best for re-election instead of what is best for America or our allies.
The American troops were literally there to keep peace between the Kurds and Turkey, while the Kurds fought ISIS. They didn't have to fight, they just had to be there.
@goaded Ya, but a lot of Americans feel like we are policing the world instead of caring for Americans.
Then they don't understand that keeping a peaceful world is in everybody's interests, and it comes with being the most powerful nation on Earth.
Regardless of whether or not you like to be in fairytale land, Trump betrayed our allies and they're being murdered for it. Right now.
I have other things on my mind too. I just sold my house, moving, I got a flat tire yesterday, I need a new rim on that tire, I work 12 hour shifts, and I go to school. I can do both.
I dont care about communists, and they were allies in only 1 endeavor which has already ended , and like I said , if you want to have a purely political chat site go to twitter
If this site wasn't for politics there wouldn't be a topic called, "society and politics"
If this site was purely for politics there wouldn't be any other categories Is my point
It's not much of a point, and who are the communists you're talking about?
They have (had) one of the most democratic, secular governments in the world.theconversation.com/turkish-attack-on-syria-endangers-a-remarkable-democratic-experiment-by-the-kurds-125105"Rojava’s charter guarantees freedom of expression and assembly and equality of all religious communities and languages. It mandates direct democracy, term limits and gender equality. Men and women share every position in government. Kurdish women have fought the Islamic State in Syria as soldiers in an all-female militia.In a region where religion and politics are often intertwined, the Kurdish state is secular. Religious leaders cannot serve in politics. Rojava’s charter even affirms the right of all citizens to a healthy environment."
There are Society & Politics and Trending News sections for a reason.
Sure, but comparatively that category tends to get less activity than the others, which kinda leans to some topics being missed or glossed over, like OP has noticed
It needs to be headlining news and it's not.
I was just reading about it. It's in the news. People said the same thing about the Amazon rainforest. That it wasn't headline news but every single mainstream outlet was reporting on it. There are whole reddit posts about it.
Words don't get you far but taking action does. Reddit is people like me and you posting whatever. I posted a meme on Reddit the other day. No one is talking about how Trump is a traitor. News outlets should be covering this almost 24/7 and they're not. People are still dying.
Okay now you revealed yourself. If you can't talk about things seriously, why should anyone take what you say seriously. You belittle your own point.
Yes I don't like Trump. Die mad about it. He betrayed these people why should I?
I'm not even mad or have a side. I'm more inclined to agree with you but you're so rabid and combative why should I. What is it with people and this "if you're not with me you're against me" that's why no one takes you seriously. Don't you realize that puts people off from ever trying to understand your position? He's a traitor, be betrayed the people. The only people you're convincing are those that already agreed with you. Is demagoguery. It helps no one.
You clearly have never been chased by a naked psych patient threatening to kill you so you don't know the definition of "combative." I'm taking a hot bath with a glass of rosé. Do I realize that? Yes. Do I care? No. How does one gently try to convince someone to care about people dying?
I work in a psyche ward I don't know who you're trying to impress. And before that a combat medic in the army. Use reason. And logic. Debate. Robust conversation. Maybe try that. That's how leaders do it. That's how intelligent people do it. Nobody fosters understanding talking nonsense and alienating people.
Obviously haven't worked there long. All I'm saying is that people are dying because Trump stabbed them in the back. It's not that complex but whatever you want to believe.
Telling you that hyperbolic language helps no one. Ubdecided people are just gonna be like, "wow she's insane." while the other side is sounding reasonable. Who do you think people are gonna listen to. Me or your raving ass.
If I have to convince someone to care about people dying, then I don't want to deal with their sociopathic self. Again, how does one gently convince someone to care about people dying?
There you go drawing a false dichotomy. You don't know how to debate things do you. Just rely on emotional appeals and strawmen.
Quit changing the subject. I'm try to reach out and ask a genuine question. Again, how do you speak to convince people to care about people dying?
You aren't trying to ask genuine questions when you set up a situation where it's either or. That's incredibly disingenuous. At no point in this exchange were you once genuinely attempting to express an idea. Not once.
You've gone too far off topic. Goodbye.
Aw you blocked him. Coward move. He's got a point too. You rant and rave but you have no substance. Silencing someone because you don't like their opinion and who isn't harassing you is the weakest thing one can do. You totally proved his point.
Because I can't be drafted due to medical issues? Fucking twat.
Who said you need to be drafted wench. Get your ass on a plane and go there yourself. You're all mouth and no bite.
People are still dying.
True but I am not worrying about things I have to stakes in and no power to influence.
They are terrorist
@ElaMoon Perhaps they are, why should I care?
Yes we have to care... terrorists are a big problem... they are not just kurd , they will be problem in future
@ElaMoon You fail to convince me.
Hahaha tmm my English not very good... good luck
But they're our Allies. Trump needs to grow a set.
You say that but it don't matter as it's happening so far away no one is directly feeling the consiquensise everyone knew this would happen if the US pulled out it's not surprising to anyone
A ruler who hides behind paid executions forgets what death is.
An internot troll who tells other what to do but won't do it themselves is the truest coward. They don't build monuments to critics.
A few friends of mine are, but it's not headlining on every news station as it should be.
In the US it's on TV so much ABC had to fake footage to get the propaganda across.
Regardless of what ABC did, Trump needs to grow a set and tell Putin to shove it where the monkey puts his balls.
