About 700 family members of Islamic State fighters escaped a Kurdish-run camp in northern Syria as Turkish-led assault unleashes chaos.

In all my training, there exists one lesson on conducting a retrograde movement.  The army does not even call it what it is - a retreat.  We have given up our position professionally, strategically and regionally in a way reminiscent of the Vietnam War, only this time / not yet, there are no Hueys on a rooftop.

After days of assurances from the Pentagon that the United States was not “abandoning” its partners in the fight against the Islamic State, Defense Secretary Mart T. Esper confirmed Sunday that Trump had ordered the withdrawal of virtually all U.S. forces from northern Syria.
I'm done.

The U.S. and the Kurds have had a long standing alliance since WW II. Folks don't realize Kurdish fighters even assisted us in battles with the Nazis. Abandoning them now is beyond despicable.....but President Trump is probably just following Putin's orders.   :brickwall:

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
