Washington - The former Kurdish allies of the United States in Northern Syria reacted with puzzlement and horror as the American forces withdrew from the area last week, leaving them to be slaughtered by their long-time foes, the Turks, as President Trump gave Turkish President Erdogan the green light to attack them, even though it was the Kurds who did most of the fighting against ISIS militants in the area.
Commander-In-Chief Trump was able to avoid the draft by obtaining a doctor's letter claiming he suffered from bone spurs in his feet early in life, despite the fact that he described himself as the "best baseball player in New York", apparently playing bravely through the bone spur issue.
The Kurds, therefore, were completely unaware that the commander of the American forces really had no grasp of the concepts of duty, honor and commitment to a country or cause.
"The Kurds didn't really defeat ISIS, I did", tweeted Trump yesterday. "They don't really have a country. Maybe if they had helped us invade Normandy, we would have given them one. They don't have a Trump Tower either, like the fine one we have in Istanbul....sad. We expect them, however, to guard their ISIS prisoners while they are being massacred".
