So much winning. Reuters photo.
By all means, bring U.S. troops back from Syria and all the other war-torn countries where they shouldn't be - shall we start with Afghanistan? - in a rational, informed way. But Trump precipitously, unilaterally, incoherently declaring victory over ISIS, "who hurts the world,” isn't it. Never mind that officials knew nothing about a seat-of-the-pants whim with global implications and it's today's gift to Vlad and it could just be a P.R. ploy by a grifter eager for distraction and we'd bet a donation to the ACLU he can't find Syria on a map and ISIS is by all accounts still about 30,000 strong, which makes these supposed "historic victories," like so much else, a fiction.
His bonkers video further proves this is no way to run a country, or a Walmart. He blathers, "We've really stepped it up, and we have won against ISIS. We've beaten them, and we've beaten them badly, and we've taken back the land." He shouts: “These are heroes of the world. Because they’ve fought for us. But they’ve killed ISIS...So they're all coming back now." He points to the sky, where dead soldiers talk to him, which is deemed "sick": "They’re up there looking down on us, and there is nobody happier or more proud of their families to put them in a position where they’ve done such good for so many people (sic)...We won, and that’s the way we want it, and that’s the way they want it.” What the ever-loving fuck. The way we want it: To have our country back.
After historic victories against ISIS, it’s time to bring our great young people home! pic.twitter.com/xoNjFzQFTp
