I agree on that to an extent. I also think a lot of the people posting the pictures of injured Kurds have no idea that there are groups of Kurds in Syria that have been killing innocent Turks for years.Not arguing, just discussing & learning.
- I think it's more of a political opportunity to attack Trump, than an ideological belief that this Kurd group are solid citizens.
- I stand corrected on NATO. It was the UN who pledged to collaborate with Turkey on this.
UN ready for close cooperation with Turkey on Syria operation:

Do you think the kurds have differentiated in Turkey?You think Turkey is differentiating? That's adorable.
Or are they still at war because the West keeping meddling?Do you think the kurds have differentiated in Turkey?
Like S2 said, whether we are there or not people in the ME are going to die. And like I said, that area has been at war since the beginning of time. Us being there isn't going to stop what is clearly an unstoppable force. Bring our troops home.

There is just a lot of hatred for each other over there. Islam is not, it turns out, a peaceful religion.What do you mean no?

The only Theocracy is Iran. The others are run by Tyrants who use Islam as a tool for having an iron fist upon the people.There is just a lot of hatred for each other over there. Islam is not, it turns out, a peaceful religion.

This does not mean that Islam is not a religion intent on expansion. FALSEIt is, much like Christianity. FALSE. But, the rulers in the Middle East are Machiavellian. They use the local religion to hold power for themselves. Turkey and Saudi Arabia are prime examples.
