The era of the Donald Trump presidency is full upon us now, given the tumultuous fight that the Commander in Chief is currently embroiled in over border security.
This current batch of democrats, much like their predecessors, have a far different view of national security than Donald Trump does, with congressional leaders such as Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer continuing to disparage the idea of a border wall as a necessary effort in this fight.  This is, of course, despite what Border Patrol agents have been attesting to time and again.
But national security is a much broader picture than the long, dusty miles on our southern border.  Instead, it is a comprehensive and complex web of legal, physical, and political efforts working harmoniously to allow the American dream to flourish.  Trump’s Secretary of State Mike Pompeo understands this, as well as the fact that President Trump’s predecessors were ostensibly horrible at keeping their eye on the prize.
During a speech in Cairo, Pompeo unleashed this reality on the world.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday launched an astonishing rebuke of former President Barack Obama’s foreign policy at the site of Obama’s famous speech to the Muslim world — declaring that “the age of self-inflicted American shame is over.”
Pompeo delivered his remarks in Cairo, where Obama famously spoke in 2009 and promised a new beginning with Muslim and Arab countries. He was criticized by conservatives for placing too much blame on the U.S. for strife in the region.
Pompeo, while not mentioning Obama by name, said that “it was here, in this city, another American stood before you” and “told you that radical Islamist terrorism does not stem from ideology.”

Washington (CNN)Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insisted Thursday that there has been no contradiction in the shifting US strategy in Syria or confusion about it -- claims that fly in the face of shocked responses from allies in the Middle East and beyond.

As Pompeo and other US officials continue to qualify the terms and timing of a US pullout of troops from Syria -- altering President Donald Trump's December 19 assertion that forces would leave "now" -- the fallout is beginning.

CNN learned Thursday that the first US military ground equipment has been withdrawn from Syria in recent days but there's still no clarity on when troops might withdraw with Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton refusing to commit to a withdrawal timetable in recent days.

Kurds on the frontlines of the fight against ISIS tell CNN their morale has taken a hit as they seek protection by strengthening other alliances. Arab allies, sensing a loss of US leverage on Syria, are looking to improve relations with Damascus by rekindling warmer diplomatic relations.

A basic question

Relations with Turkey have become even more deeply strained over US demands that Syrian Kurds be protected. Perhaps most profoundly, some analysts said, as the administration issues conflicting and changing statements, trust in the steadiness of US policies and the authority of its most senior officials has been further eroded.

"The most significant implication of the withdrawal decision, first and foremost, is that our allies will now have to question the confidence in which they will hold statements by our secretary of state and national security adviser and secretary of defense," said Robert Satloff, executive director of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. "Do these senior officials speak for the President?"
"It's so fundamental to the operations of our foreign policy," Satloff continued. "I can't remember a moment, two years into an administration, when this basic question was on the table."

'No contradiction'

Pompeo insisted in a Cairo speech Thursday that under the Trump administration, the US is a stalwart presence in the Mideast. He told reporters separately that "there's no contradiction whatsoever" in the US policy on Syria, arguing that "this is a story made up by the media."

At the same time, the top US diplomat has denied allies were confused about the US withdrawal from Syria. "I think everyone understands what the United States is doing," Pompeo said as he traveled to the Middle East this week. "At least the senior leaders in their governments do."

Yet on the ground and in diplomatic circles, Trump's decision landed with explosive effect.

US allies in the region were blindsided. Two diplomatic sources say their countries were not consulted or informed and the news came as a total surprise.

'What is going on?'

Even now, as the timeline and US intentions grow less clear, a senior European diplomat told CNN that, "we are just like everyone, trying to find out what is going on. Are the US staying a la Bolton until conditions are right? Or heading off in three or four months time?"

In Shaffa, Syria, on the frontlines of the fight against ISIS, a Syrian Defense Forces commander told CNN that "we were all surprised by it," adding that the announcement "impacted us all."

"It affected our morale, and some of the soldiers and commanders asked to stop the fighting," the commander said.
Trump's abrupt move also influenced ISIS, this commander said. "It encouraged ISIS and provided them hope that they can activate sleeper cells and continue to fight harder," he said, noting that he and his men have been fighting ISIS alongside coalition forces, "especially the US," for four years now.

"This decision was not in the right time," he said.

Democrats are unable to refute a word of what I posted!

Oscar, why should any American give a shit about relations with Turkey?

That government is now a corrupt dictatorship deserving of neither our support nor our friendship!

The Kurds on the other hand have been steadfast allies!

We should divert our aid for Turkey to the Kurds and help them establish a homeland!

You post wishes and myths, DvD.  nothing to refute.

Pompeo is correct, it is a new beginning.

We have gone from a US that was committed and honored its promises,
to a US that lies and will break treaties in a heartbeat at the whim of its unstable, wanna-be Dictator.

That government (Turkish) is now a corrupt dictatorship deserving of neither our support nor our friendship!

The Kurds on the other hand have been steadfast allies!

Of course anyone with the slightest amount of reading comprehension would have known what government I was talking about!
