This website has published two articles about the Kurds. Our concern and information about the Kurds did not start this week, this month, or this year. The first article was published nine years ago. Sanityandsense.com published on 12/26/18 an article titled: ” President Trump – Please Save The Kurds.” On 10/11/10 an article was published titled: ” The Upcoming Israeli-Iranian War.” Readers are encouraged to read or reread these articles by typing the word, Kurds, into the search box on the home page of this website. Then click go and the articles will appear.
With the extraordinarily corrupt democrat party working in conjunction with the fake news media 24/7, this website believes that the great wisdom displayed by President Trump was not fairly reported and the fake news media distorted basic facts.
First of all, this issue is not a republican versus democrat issue like the border wall or the economy. It is much deeper and much more complex than that. The facts support that there are members of the republican party and members of the democrat party who both support the never ending U.S. involvement in wars around the world. Facts also support that there is also a group of republicans and democrats who agree with President Trump and oppose the never ending war scenario.
Individuals who agree with the position recently taken by President Trump remind Americans that the U.S. is not the policeman of the world and that it is not our business to commit American forces to wars that many consider un-winnable and un-necessary. These individuals often quote President Eisenhower’s warning of the growing ” Military Industrial Complex.”
There are individuals who disagree with President Trump. These people are often called neocons or neoconservatives. These neocons do indeed support the belief that the U.S. is the policeman of the world. They want the U.S. to become involved and remain involved in foreign wars. Often these neocons who support foreign wars are embarrassed when a sharp commentator asks a simple question like: ” You strongly supported the Vietnam War. You were of military age during that war. Why then did you ask for an exemption and avoid service to your country.” Many neocons support foreign and un-winnable wars as long as they do not have to serve in the U.S. Military, nor do any of their children or their grandchildren.
Until Donald Trump stated that the U.S. is going to stop fighting long and un-winnable wars, the neocons could not have cared less about the Kurds. Now the neocons suddenly have a great concern for the Kurds. Now the neocons are very worried about the Kurds.
Since I published my first article on this website about the Kurds nine years ago, it is very fair to say that I have demonstrated a compassion for the Kurdish people. I strongly commend President Trump for sending Vice President Mike Pence to speak in person with Turkey’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The Trump-Pence message to Mr. Erdogan was: 1) correct, 2) courageous, 3) appropriate, and 4) everything reasonable that President Trump could have reasonably done to protect the Kurds.
With Tulsi Gabbard in the democratic presidential race, Americans will hear a great deal more about American involvement in foreign wars. Since the “fake news media” has attacked Ms. Gabbard with such venom and false reporting, she has something in common with President Trump. If I were to advise President Trump, I would suggest to him that he invite Ms. Gabbard to the White House to have a cup of coffee with him. Even though Tulsi disagrees on many issues with President Trump, I know that the President and Ms. Gabbard could have a civilized and polite and an adult conversation with each other even though they only have agreement on Trump’s projected use of the U.S. Military. If I were Trump, I would do this right away because there is not a single democrat in congress except Tulsi that would show and display the proper respect for a President of the U.S.
