They did the same thing in 2007, during the Troop Surge in Iraq.
Pelosi and Tom Lantos tried to derail the surge by assuring Assad that he would not pay a price for his al-Qaeda camps in Syria.
And Lantos asked the Iraqi Kurds to try and force a Turkish invasion of Iraq.
TODAY, the Democrats can't screw up Trump's plans, because our allies are the ones doing the bulk of the fighting, AND the strategy is different.
Trump is one of the few people given firsthand briefings on the capabilities of the Arab strategic special forces.
The Democrats don't know anything about them.
Therefore Trump can't be baited into making decisions that will backfire.
The main issue in the Middle East is "face."
When you inflict a humiliating defeat on the enemy, he will ALWAYS come back in order to try and restore his honor.
And unless you kill every single fighter, the enemy will declare victory.
Simply surviving is a victory.
"We took on the greatest military power in the world, and we're still here!"
Trust the Trump.
He can outmaneuver anyone.
@ThomasWic He’s amazing! Period the end. 🇺🇸❤️
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
