Pence is going to try to negotiate with Erdogan to ask him to stop doing what Donald Trump authorized him to do for reasons no one else seems to know.

My favorite analogy was that Orange Hitler let the horses out of the barn and is now going around screaming at the horses.

"He did not green light this invasion," Pompeo said on Fox.

"I was very, very closely involved when President Erdogan told, informed, notified us that he was prepared to move and that he was going to do so within hours," he added.  "President Trump saw that there were American soldiers in the way ... The president made the right decision in the moment, to get American forces out of the way."

My bet is that Putin told Orange Hitler to do it. The only problem is that Turkey is in NATO and the Russians now occupy Syria, so maybe Putin didn't actually tell Orange Hitler to do it.

My second guess is that Erdogan offered Orange Hitler something with Orange Hitler Tower Istanbul.

My guess is that Trump knows the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Having listened to his word salad of an explanation for increasing US troop numbers in Saudi Arabia, all the Kurds needed to do was offer to pay Trump for the use of 'his' military.

The truly bizarre thing is that Orange Hitler and his cult followers actually think this groveling makes Orange Hitler look good.

What the fuck is wrong with those people?

In response, Turkish presidential sources told BBC Turkish: "President Erdogan received the letter, thoroughly rejected it and put it in the bin."

I can't believe anybody would have thrown it away. Original Nixon letters are now changing hands for small fortunes. Trump's are going to worth at least as much for their comedy value alone.

This month wasn't the first time Trump has been shown a map detailing economic assets to convince him not to follow through on ordering U.S. troops home, officials said.

Members of Trump's national security team and his allies outside the administration have regularly gone through that exercise with him since he took office, officials said.

In the first two years of the administration, current and former officials said Trump so frequently threatened to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq and even the Korean Peninsula that some of his advisers developed a system for talking him down from taking such steps. The effort included showing him visual materials like maps to walk through the reasons why an abrupt withdrawal would be detrimental to U.S. interests, officials said.

For Syria, the exercises focused on the oil and how it would fall into Iran's hands if the U.S. withdrew, officials said. Keane was among those who walked Trump through a Syria map showing oil fields after the president announced in December 2018 that he would withdraw all U.S. troops there. That announcement also followed a phone call between Trump and Erdogan.

On Afghanistan, the presentation to Trump included a map of the country's rare earth minerals, largely used in electronic devices, officials said.

The goal was to frame the argument in economic terms that Trump was more likely to respond than a purely military strategy, they said. With Syria, the prospect of economic leverage also dovetailed with Trump's inclination to block anything advantageous to Iran, officials said.

The focus on Iran in trying to convince Trump to keep a contingent of U.S. troops in northern Syria — rather than on potential action by Russia, which officials say is far more capable and likely to make moves to harness the oil — is in part because the president has appeared more likely to be persuaded by proposals aimed at countering Iran than Russia, according to one former U.S. official.
