  • Published: 08 October 2019
  • Former National Security Advisor Ambassador Susan Rice, who has a new memoir, 'Tough Love,' believes Trump's decision to withdraw U.S. Troops from northern Syria is a dangerous betrayal to Kurdish allies who have been fighting ISIS on America's behalf. #Colbert #LSSC #Interviews

    How tone deaf do you have to be to publicly state you're *using* the Kurds , sending them as fodder to fight an enemy that YOU created

              Correction on the capture of Benghazi perps-- one scruffy Libyan was captured in 2014 and didn't go on trial for three years. Wasn't convicted of murder. Another mongrel cohort was also later captured and is awaiting trial. Obama's still not resting until all the perps are rounded up-- said no one ever.

                Syria, the place where the skinny Kenyan drew his virtual red line in the sand only to have a puff of wind from Assad's ass obliterate it. Next up Benghazi, with the same skinny Kenyan vowing to bring the perps to justice. No one has gone on trial for that infamous incident. Susan Rice acting as the fall guy claiming it was a anti Islamic video-- right

                    Wrong! It was "Bat**** Crazy" for the US to go into Syria based on oil interests, and our competition with Russia over natural gas.

                      Pathological liar Susan Rice you’re dumb as a stump and part of the 8- year incompetent Obama administration. 🆘 Shame on morally bankrupt Potty mouth Susan Rice your classless disgrace just like Obama eight year presidency was. You need to shut your filthy mouth you lied about Benghazi Libya Embassy attack and you know it. Your a pathological liar just like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

                              The only thing that's batshit crazy Susan is that Obama ever became President and hired your Nazi horse face ass to denigrate the oval office with your unamerican stench and out of touch view's.

                                Putin is up to no good having a foothold in Syria. He's an ally of Iran and now has sandwiched Israel in between two of their enemies. I don't know what his next plan will be since Iran is now free to go forward with their nuclear goals, thanks to Trump. I think he is there to keep Assad in power.

                                      We the American people don't want a single American soldier in Syria. Obama and his cronies have been exposed as the architects of terrorism. If our great nation has turned into this evil entity we will destroy it on the heads of the ISIS allied Democrats. Loud and clear: TRUMP OR THE DESTRUCTION OF THE US

                                        @Michelle Hertzberg I know all the history. Obama airdropped weapons to ISIS in Syria in a badly botched bloody plan to overthrow Russia allied Bashar Al Assad without logical reason. After all the sacrifices that were made to clean this mess up, if the pesky separatist Kurds want to take advantage and prolong bloodshed they will be dealt with firmly along side those peddling for and promoting war (foreign and domestic).

                                        Never heard something this can people lie on TV like that. PYD is PKK and is SDF, all terrorist organisations, we all know that. The highest american general has approved, Trum aprroved that and so on. Why u keep arming 1 terrorist organistaion to fight another? Also what about the 40k turks who have been killed by PKK? Turkey has the right to defends its boarders.

                                          He was not nice. Colbert is always defending the Republicans except Trump which is a low bar since Trump is such a deviant. Now he is taking up for Trump in his evilest move as a President. That’s why I don’t watch his show.

                                              Most Kurdish groups that the U.S. support have been on terrorist lists for decades. On CIA's terrorist lists
                                              US always supports terrorists to fight terrorists and it's bad for everyone.

                                                    -In the bush administration action was perceived as something that was to destabilize the middle east. During the Obama administration, inaction was perceived to have the same effect. From my perspective personalities like Colbert and Trevor Noah showed a substantial amount of growth from Brush to Obama administration but have then resisted logic from Obama to Trump because of Orange Man bad syndrome. From my perspective, trying to create a consistent pattern of interference or lack of interference is what these countries need to stabilized and intervention does not mean boots on the ground or military intervention. So if Trump is leaning more towards a pattern of not having troops occupy the middle east and can still check Russia or China, this a good thing for everyone. It's idealistic but it has potential.

                                                    -Whistle blower is probably not a spy. Agreed.

                                                    -Susan Rice personal opinion of Donald Trump is the same as Donald Trumps against his attackers. There is no decent or real reason to side with her over Trump in regards to the opinion of who is serving the American People more.

                                                    -Schiff lied on record for comedic effect or embellishment to prove an unproven point. That's not a question. That's treason. What is this lady trying to say?

                                                    -I agree with what she said about he one and done approach to the chemical weapons. I just don't know if that's actually a weaker approach. She's conveying the idea that after the initial show of force they problem is not solved. I'm not sure any amount of force would actually solve the problem and giving (in some cases) countries time to reconsider their actions given consequences might be more effective.

                                                      Wow! I really liked watching Colbert and thought he was an intelligent and informed commentator of current affairs. Now, I just realize that he's nothing more of a propaganda machine for the left. Be fair and give ALL the information on what Turkey is dealing with...4 million refugees (how many did the US take?). Remind your viewers that it's not just Turkey that this particular group of Kurds are considered terrorists, it's the international community. Isn't it odd that these Kurds are now aligning themselves with Assad and Russia? And now they have US made weapons. Isn't this all just a way to keep this entire region unstable so the US can keep selling arms. Does anyone know that even though the US President plans to impose sanctions on Turkey, the government also passed a waiver to still sell weapons to Turkey? Come on everyone, read between the lines.

The woman admits it has been 4 years supplying the Kurds with weapons and intelligence, Afghanistan 18 years, Iraq in the middle. Endless wars, costing American lives, spending our tax dollars that could be used in educating our youth, taxes that could be providing health care and prescriptions to our sick. Why why why does the USA need to be the one country to bankrupt itself to provide "help" to other cultures/societies, when ours is failing in providing for our own citizens? England and France pulled out of the region,. Israel and Saudi Arabia have 100's of thousands of soldiers and Billions of dollars of modern weapons and intelligence that could be used in helping the Kurds. Why are they not helping their allies against ISIS?

The next day Turkey attacks Syria. Turkey gets to kill all the Kurds and Trump gets something in return..Maybe, some "made up" information on Biden or maybe safety for his two hotels in Turkey. Trump is a super egomaniacal narcissist. He feels "absolutely zero" about the Kurds who are getting slaughtered. And, if the Kurds call in the Russians to "save them", then that's OK too because it helps to pay Putin back for whatever Trump owes him! Every decision Trump makes about America is based solely on "what is best for Trumps pocketbook!'l His usurper presidency is one long "conflict of interest" scene". Congress needs to STOP the withdrawal of the 1000 American Troops, plus send extra troops temporarily to protect our allies, the Kurds. And, Congress needs to STOP the presidency of Trump by removing him immediate with the 25th. Congress needs to STOP thinking of Trump as in any way a "normal" president. Trump is a,complete "abberation" of any other presidentc. He only became president to " make himself and his children money! He could care less if he destroys everything, the constitution, democracy, decency, and even the physical world if he can "con" everyone out of money!
