Trump mocks betrayed Kurds facing massacres: ‘They have a lot of sand to play with’

President Trump poured salt in the wounds Wednesday of America’s onetime Kurdish allies, quipping that “they have plenty of sand to play with.”


Showing even less tact or humanity than usual, Trump mocked the onetime American allies who are facing ethnic cleansing after the president gave Turkey a green light to overrun northern Syria over the weekend.


“It’s not our problem,” Trump said during a White House photo op. “They’ve got a lot of sand over there ... There’s a lot of sand they can play with.”


He added that the Kurds are “not angels," even though the Kurdish forces were the primary American ally in the battle against ISIS and al Qaeda militants.
Trump also repeated a Turkish talking point when he asserted that a Kurdish political party in Turkey are terrorists.
They are “more of a terrorist threat, in many ways, than ISIS,” Trump said, without elaborating.
The comments were particularly offensive because they seem to echo common slurs against Muslims or Arabs.


The Kurds live in adjacent parts of several Middle Eastern countries but are not Arabs. Their oil-rich homeland is mostly mountainous and not desert like much of the Arabian peninsula.

Not sure what the problem is Cliffy! For years you've been criticizing the U.S.'s engagement in battle overseas, so now you got your way, that suddenly doesn't suit you. You can't have it both ways!

I was wondering why Aunt Jamima was so "rotund". I always thought it was because she was full of white flour like Cannuck. Now I find out it was Donald trump's fault all this time.

Utter bullshit.
You're right, Walter. The U.S. was always a dodgy ally. We were on our own, pretty much alone with Britain at war with Germany and the Americans didn't give a shit until some lunatics attacked them and the numbskull Germans declared war on a neutral USA.

Dodgy ally..

"What's in it for us?"

The US was profiting from supplying both sides. The American people didn't want to be involved but the military/industrial complex did, so they saw the Japanese were going to attack Pearl Harbour and they let them. One of the few false flag operations that the US didn't plan themselves.
