The Mess in Syria

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

I may have done that, especially when the source is some looney tune conspiracy site.

But hey, Doc will protest when I use strawmen, so..... :look:

I guess Sweden hasn't heard about what a joke CNN has become over the last few years, most notably last few months...

CNN reports an inconvenient statement made by Secretary of Defense Mark Esper , and Strangelove focuses on how "CNN is a joke".

More distraction as per usual.

If you don't see any CNN spin in what Per quoted...
The President's version of events was so divorced from reality that, only moments before he praised Erdogan, his own envoy to Syria, Amb. Jim Jeffrey, told Congress that the US has seen evidence of war crimes in a Turkish invasion he called "a tragic disaster."

Trump lifted all the sanctions the US imposed on Turkey after it launched an invasion of Syrian territory that had been under control of the Kurds with US support -- until Trump agreed to remove US forces following a phone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan two weeks ago. The Turkish assault that followed Trump's abrupt withdrawal announcement forced hundreds of thousands of Kurds to flee their homes, prompting accusations of ethnic cleansing by Turkey and its allied Arab militias.

Trump lied about the fate of ISIS, saying prisoners who were being guarded by the Kurds, are "under very, very strict lock and key," adding that a few who escaped had been "largely recaptured." Secretary of Defense Mark Esper just told CNN's Christiane Amanpour that more than 100 escaped, and Jeffrey told Congress, "We do not know where they are."

Trump sought to throw sand in the eyes of his audience, pretending the past couple of weeks have been a triumph of US foreign policy. The precise opposite is true. According to the president, "People are saying, "wow, what a great outcome, congratulations.'"

As did Doc.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Ah yes, you're right there, I did a partial quote. I should have quoted less. :)
