It is fair to debate the merits of President Trump’s decision to withdraw American troops from Syria. However, it is also fair to expose the hypocrisy of the thoroughly vile Speaker Pelosi, who recently condemned President Trump’s decision on Twitter.
On Twitter Pelosi stated “Once again,
@realDonaldTrump is deserting an ally in a foolish attempt to appease a foreign strongman – this time betraying our Kurdish allies who have been instrumental partners in our mission to eradicate ISIS.” Incredible.
Did Pelosi ever dare issue a statement of condemnation against Erdogan, when he was bombing Syria’s Kurdish population during the Obama administration? Did Pelosi ever condemn President Obama for stating that Erdogan was among the leaders (one of five) that he was able to forge “bonds of trust” with? Did Pelosi refer to Erdogan as a “foreign strongman” then? No, she did not. Pelosi never cared about the Kurdish population in Syria, and still doesn’t to this day. Pelosi only cares about vilifying President Trump for political purposes.
As for betraying allies, Pelosi consistently turned a blind eye to President Obama’s ongoing betrayal of Israel. The Obama administration vilified Israel publicly on numerous occasions, while the sniveling coward Pelosi remained silent. In fact, Pelosi publicly supported Obama’s genocidal JCPOA, despite the outcry from the Israeli government. Pelosi also supported the anti-Israel UN resolution 2334, which Obama orchestrated during the lame duck period of his presidency. In addition, Pelosi still refuses to endorse significant anti-BDS legislation, and still refuses to take action against Rep. Rashida Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar for their anti-Semitic attacks against Israel.
Speaker Pelosi is the last person to lecture anyone on Syria’s Kurdish population, or betraying allies, or appeasing foreign strongman. It will be a joyful day in November of 2020 when Nancy Pelosi loses her speakership.
Pelosi calls Trump’s planned withdrawal from northern Syria ‘a deeply disturbing development’
By The Hill, October 8, 2019:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Monday blasted President Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria ahead of an invasion by Turkey, calling it “deeply disturbing.”
“The President’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Northern Syria is a deeply disturbing development that betrays our Kurdish allies who have been instrumental partners in our mission to eradicate ISIS,” Pelosi said in a statement.
“Despite what the President might say, ISIS remains a serious threat. This reckless, misguided decision undermines the efforts by our brave servicemembers and our allies to end ISIS’s tyranny,” she said.
Pelosi added that Trump is deserting an ally while attempting to appease Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, whom she calls an “authoritarian strongman,” by turning “operational responsibility” in the region over to Ankara.
“President Trump has abandoned our Kurdish partners,” said.
“This decision poses a dire threat to regional security and stability, and sends a dangerous message to Iran and Russia, as well as our allies, that the United States is no longer a trusted partner.”
Once again, @realDonaldTrump is deserting an ally in a foolish attempt to appease a foreign strongman – this time betraying our Kurdish allies who have been instrumental partners in our mission to eradicate ISIS. https://t.co/Bfa1MzxxCU
