The Left, and Their Monopoly on Victimhood

"On an issue that I have covered regularly the vaccine regularly should say the virus and all its ramifications vaccines included. Aaron Syria lawyer who has followed this greatly and been involved in it legally CDC admits crushing rights of naturally immune without proof they transmit the virus. After formal demand, and I saw the formal demand. It's a freedom of information act demand. After formal demand the CDC concedes it does not have proof of a single instance of a naturally immune individual spreading the virus. I saw it. It's so incredible this piece of news, and of course it won't be reported in denying media. That was the truest thing that Donald Trump said in his four years. And he said, many true things, by the way, the lying media is like its treatment, remember, what was that Catholic boy's name in Washington, D.C.? Anyway, remember that the Catholic boy? This written house is really chapter another chapter in that, or like the white, the white lacrosse players at duke. The media lie to you that every day by omission or co mission. They lied about me. That I denied that gaze have been pariahs during the aids crisis. It's a 100% law. You could read my statement. But because I also said, or because I said that the unvaccinated are also pariahs who, this set them off. The left owns all victimhood. There are no victims. Among conservatives or among white males.

Joe Kent: From Army Special Forces to Congressional Candidate

"Joe Kent welcome to America first. Tell us your story first. We were going to discuss your epic decision to serve the nation again this time out of uniform, but tell us a little bit about your life history. What you decided to do at the age of 18 and what you've done in uniform for this nation. Absolutely so pretty much as far back as I can remember, I wanted to serve the country abroad, fighting our nation's wars. I came in just before 9 11. I was really inspired by the rangers in the 1993 Black Hawk down incident. So talking to the army recruiters and you got a ranger contract ready to high school, work my way into ranger regiment. I started my career there. And then my way into special forces. So green berets as most people know them. Actually, it was in special forces selection one 9 11 happens. So God done with the special forces qualifications course, immediately went to 5th special forces group and spent pretty much the next two decades at war. So winter combat 11 times for this country, greatest honor of my life. Retired the 20 year mark because I wanted to be able to stay in the fight operational retired on a Friday and then swore in as a paramilitary operations officer at the CIA on a Monday intended to make that my second career. I felt it was my nation's calling to serve this country overseas fighting war. But my time was cut short tragically because my late wife, Shannon Kent, who was also a special operator, a navy cryptologist and Arabic linguist who had joined the military right after 9 11. She was killed fighting ISIS in Syria in 2019. She was killed about a month after president Trump attempted to fulfill the will of the American people and get us out of our endless war. She was part of the final push to destroy the territory territorial caliphate. Once that happened, Trump attempted to get our troops out as he promised. And that's when the deep state essentially turned against him Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and a bunch of other unelected bureaucrats, committed bureaucratic slow role, went to the media, their end result was that my wife and the element that she was worth a special operator she was with ended up staying in Syria, a month later her and three other great Americans are tragically killed by suicide bomber and managed Syria. So I decided that that moment that I had to resign from putting myself in physical danger to take care of our two young children, move back here to the Pacific Northwest, had a little bit of an opportunity to meet president Trump and really tell him that his America first foreign policy was actually giving it right. I served under Clinton, I served under Bush served under Obama and we remained in this state of continuous war and without making any gains really just for the benefit of the military industrial complex until president Trump came on the scenes and gave us the authorities and then really the ability to go out and crush the enemy decisively, but not getting any

But the main reason we got here is because the founding fathers gave us a system that has not been followed. One of the characteristics of the system at the founding fathers gave us in the united states constitution is and balances a check on power. And since we do not have an opposition party republicans. The state department doesn't fear anything that could possibly come out of congress. They're unchecked. There is no one no institution that is holding them to account on accountable action with lots of power and lots of money and lots of prestige is almost always a recipe for the arrogant and the foolish coming together and governing your country into oblivion.

"What's the minimum number about which we are certain that are there and have not been able to get out is at one hundred is at five hundred. Is it five thousand. Do they have any minimum number. No no number at all. At least from what i saw. They resisted providing specific number which is incredible now. Their argument is okay. When people come into afghanistan they're encouraged to register with the embassy. Some do some don't and then some don't d- register when they leave the country. I understand but we should at least have some range of an estimate about how many we have contact with you right exactly. How many have contacted you. Because you gotta let now. My question is if people forgotten danny pearl. Have they forgotten the woman journalist in syria. They forgotten the beirut's cia station cheap. These are fanatics. it's not like we're giving the pirates. They're they're the absolute worst people in the world and we're abandoning americans to it. It's mind boggling. And by the way. The taliban has american hostages right now to me. I don't understand. I don't understand why if we're gonna make this humiliating surrender agreement. Why didn't even include getting some hostages back that we know they have the final thing. I mean. the other thing i'd say is if the white house continues to make this argument that will don't worry about the collapse of position afghanistan leaving behind american citizens the fact that we don't have the ability to over the horizon counter-terrorism there it's all about china and the pacific our past actions and our reputation in a in a different theater doesn't matter in terms of our ability to deter china. Okay well if you accept that argument then everything. Hinges on the balance of power in the indo pacific vis-a-vis china and that balance of power is getting worse in large part because the biden defense department is making it worse and it's budget is abysmal. And yesterday we voted on a five trillion dollar bill that takes us to the lowest level of defense. Spending is a function of gdp in eighty years. So their priorities which are all out of whack. Which hinge entirely on passing a bernie sanders progressive budget while decimating defense that is weakening our position vis-a-vis china

Living a war damone tells me that displaced Syrians have started a campaign to call attention to their plight. The calling it smash the wall meaning open the border. Does the demonstration plant near the Turkish border for Friday? Dumont Woobie there as should we carrying a message for the international community. If the world still be silent what happened here. We will smash the Porter Smash the wall and crossed Europe through Turkey. That's our last solution. That's our last lifeboat. Our last knife boat. She's for the world. I'm sure Jafari. The desperation of the Syrian civilians is no secret to David Miller band. He heads the International Rescue Committee. He's also a former British foreign secretary. Mill Ben says the IRC has one hundred eighty eight workers staff on the ground. And they're seeing some of the worst humanitarian conditions. Since the war in Syria began began in two thousand eleven. It's absolutely hellish over the last three days. One hundred thirty thousand people have been bombed and shelled from their homes. Now on the move running or in college or on trucks a try to get away from the front line. And I'll being crammed into increasingly densely populated area in the northwest of the country up against the Turkish border with three and a half billion dollars fellow citizens and then in amongst them are twenty to thirty thousand estimated members of various terrorist groups. Who are in control of the area. So what we're seeing here is a humanitarian emergency and the politically urgency offering. No root-out for the innocent people who are trapped in the middle of it right so civilians cornered in this corner of it Lib. You've described it as a Gaza Strip. Can you explain what you mean like what's the similarity over the course of the nine years of the war an extra one and a half to two million people have been moved from other parts of the country as part of a series of negotiated settlements? So now there's three and a half million people in the province at then because of the fighting. They are being squeezed into an increasingly densely populated part of the country up against the Turkish border which is closed to everything except aid trucks going from Turkey to Syria as already three point. Seven million Syrians living in Turkey and the Turkish government. Says it can't take anymore so what you've got is humanitarian. Hell really the danger of being killed by missile strikes by bombings and then the danger of literally freezing to death. I wouldn't use that example if we didn't now have the United Nations concerning six deaths of children including a days old babies as a result of being outside under trees with no protection at all at this is such a flagrant abuse of everything that international decency is meant to stand for that. I've called for the UN Secretary General himself to go to it. Live to talk to the Turks there to fly to Moscow to talk to the Russian backers of the Syrian offensive and then to come back to New York to To demand to drive to shame the world into action now Turkey's President Repti- bear on saying that it is only a matter of time before Turkey launches its own operation against the Syrian army's push into it Lib. What do you think is that likely to happen? And what would it mean for the IRC and other humanitarian organizations? Well you'll raising a very important point because six. Turkish troops have been killed by the Syrian offensive. Thirteen Syrians within killed in. Return in the tit for tat. A frankly the Threats from the Turks one of the few things that is restraining to any degree at all the momentum of the Syrian brushing bags onslaught. But obviously our fear is that if the fighting intensifies and becomes a two way find. There's even greater danger to the civilian. Is this the Syrian war in its final chapter in? What do you think the end might look like well? This is suddenly the worst of the Syrian war. So far we've never had one hundred thirty thousand people fleeing in the space of a weekend. It's also the case and these are now the last two parts of Syria. That are not in the control of the government. The northwest northeast however. We had the chilling news today of two aid workers being killed in the south of the country. That's the part where the Syrian government is notionally in control. And that tells you that if you win. A war by brute force you will not have sustainable peace. David Miller Band is the director of the International Rescue Committee. Thank you very much. Thank you very much when it comes to artificial intelligence or a technology China and the US are widely seen as world leaders but Europe wants in on the action too so today. European regulators unveiled a set of proposals aimed at making the European Union. More competitive in. Here's the latest from the world's Lydia Amana lead. Do you know when you post a photo on facebook and it automatically knows who to tag or when you use a navigation APP and it tells you exactly what back roads to take an exactly how long it should take you to get to wherever you WANNA go? That stone through artificial intelligence is basically technology that uses data to make decisions. Hopefully they're smart decisions and you can apply to systems in all sorts of sectors healthcare transportation national defense and many others so having companies that make it gives countries big advantages earlier today European. Legislators released a set of proposals. That they say we'll give them a competitive edge in the race. One of the things they want to do is incentivize. Data sharing among European companies. Remember data is what makes artificial intelligence while intelligent and data is what made the likes of Google and Amazon. Into the tech giant's they are today in its proposal. The European Commission said it also wants to invest more in the development of AI and to do it responsibly. Were I think it's very significant? Nikolai is the founder and president of the Future Society. It's a think tank that specializes in governance of AI. And other emerging technologies. He's based in Paris and he says that the European Commission with its proposal today shrink to bring back Europe into Global Race. Not necessarily in them the one and number two. Ridi physician Europe within and drive a wedge between the US and China and what has been framed as a group will drop on the European legislators. No they don't have the kind of data that China does. There just aren't as many people and they know they don't have the private tech companies that we have here in the US but they say that Europe has its own strengths in the manufacturing space like the auto industry legislators say they want to prioritize ai innovation in sectors like this but while the US and China have moved quickly on AI. Europe is paying closer attention to moving cautiously so in the proposals today. Legislators laid out a number of regulations they want on the technology including tougher rules for what they've labeled as high risk systems. Those are systems that would be used in healthcare transportation and policing so this notion of whatever comes in has to be regulated and created very very carefully. And that's one of the things that the forthcoming condition would try and do. And therefore creating set of standards that other countries in other continents can can either borough from build upon the European. Commission's proposals are now up for public comment. Eventually they'll be voted on by members of the European Parliament. Alexandra Giza is a member. From Germany She's part of the Greens group. I'm very much well coming this. I think this was Remarkable that Europe is the first continental to seriously have think about an letter framework official intelligence but some people are more skeptical. Aline Chevaux is with the think. Tank the center for data innovation. She's based in Brussels. Your is trying to perhaps build an image of regulatory superpower but and nine ended up instead as a regulatory fortress and not Asian powerhouse the challenge for Europe she says will be to ensure a regulation doesn't stifle innovation for the world. I'm Lydia Manually. Do Australia reconsidered. Its approach to firefighting. That's just ahead. You're listening to the world. I'm Marco Werman you're with the world. Heavy rains have brought a merciful end to massive wildfires in Australia. Large areas of the country were turned to Ash. Dozens of people were killed and more than a billion animals are now injured or dead now. Australians are asking how to prevent another catastrophic fire season and more and more they're looking toward indigenous fire prevention practices as part of the answer. The world's Anna Customer reports Christopher McHugh has been a volunteer firefighter in Australia since he was sixteen. He says this year was the worst season.

President trump says he's going to sanction Turkeys aggression in northern Syria it is confusing and will explain more in a moment but we wanted to focus first on the people affected people like Roseanne worker she's a resident of the town of Sarah Canea in the British region of northern Syria after she heard that Turkish soldiers were on the way to or town she escaped as bombs are falling to another Syrian town nearby. I'll doc worker feels trapped that's because Syrian troops are now also coming to her region it is really disappointing we are really angry in Greeley settled the fact that there is no choice but that so if this is GonNa Stop the blood that is shooting re are okay with that but many sons and daughters of us have martyred than give their blood for the territory's everything is going to go dislike them ED is really Appointing what were you hoping for I was hoping just like everyone we were hoping to have our own country own life our own freedom our own rights I gather though some of the people from your town held celebrations this weekend apparently erred Syrian soldiers run their way what were the celebration some people who are staying in Hesse who really wanted the Syrian military to come back they were celebrating we could hear crackers till one am they were happy that the they are getting rid of the bombardments they are getting Turkey and other gone so that's why they were celebrating but not the Kurds they were waiting for the comeback in terms of fighting that's been going on for the last few days I understand that you lost someone pretty close to you a friend of the family if he was a fighter in to the martyred in Sekondi Roggin US seen this kind of attack on Kurds before I know you're twenty four now but when you were sixteen you had to flee another Turkish incursion into Syria what is different this time The first time a bombardments started I went to my room and started collecting so I can go studying we would elect who cross the borders at that time this time when the bombardments started I was in the middle of my own looking around I couldn't the I couldn't bear bear to start this collecting everything related again so it just took some money my certificate so the university on that sits couldn't take anything even though I had closed I couldn't take it anything so I thought it was just useless we feel helpless we feel like time has stopped nothing is going to change gene when I asked you earlier what you were hoping for you said for the Kurds our own country our own rights and yet that homeless that homeland has always been so elusive I still have hopes that the Kurds can have a homeland I was talking with my friend a moment ago the shoe was really to dance asked me if we're ever GONNA go to set any guy told her I told her something I said that if no one support us the whole world our land wants accept any traders our land won't be twitter for us the whole world may be fully craters but not your homeland it won't accept anyone but we're going to go back to our homeland because that's soil isn't a traitor it L. E. will accept us Roggin wigger thank you very much good luck to you look Roggin worker a resident of Sarah Canea a town in northern Syria that the Turkish military bombed last week she fled to nearby I'll Hasakeh Syria which is where she spoke with us from it is a very confusing scene in in northern Syria lots of players lots of objectives old enemies forming new alliances to face off against greater enemies. The world's Chris Wolf is here to help us sense of all of this so what is going on because it's pretty confusing yet it is marco and I think one of the main reasons is that there are so many players but let me try to break it down I am for you on the one side you've got Turkey nation state moving into northern Syria to try and quell what it says is a threat to its own national security a Kurdish autonomous zone alongside the Turks there are Syrians who are mostly jihadis who've been enlisted by the Turks over the last years to fight for them so they're doing a lot of the meeting for the Turks and they're fighting the Kurdish led alliance in northern Syria that's been running its own affairs for several years with the backing of the US and so last week and the Kurdish led alliance is called the Syrian democratic forces the F. They're not just Kurds they have a lot of Syrian Arab allies so just led alliance and I spoke with Thomas McClure spokesman for the regime over information center a Kurdish research and advocacy group in northeast Syria this morning so the against the Kurds and they're always on the other side those are the primary plays in the fight at the moment but as that spokesman was just alluding to it's about to get a lot more complicated yet more complicated because the agreement that deal that that spokesman for the curse just mentioned what's that about well yes so the Syrian democratic forces were pretty much an American creation and apple now they've largely depended heavily on the American military for their security they were the ones though who did most of the fighting against Isis so when president trump ended the pullout US troops from the region La Sunday the Kurdish led alliance was helpless in the face of this attack from Turkey so the STF yesterday made a new military. reliance now this one is with former enemy the government of Russia Alaska the Syrian regime and I heard from Kurdish spokesman look at me twenty Akina that was already novel with cut so he's stressing that this is purely a military alliance not a political one. He hopes that the Kurds will ris eighteen political control of their autonomous zone although experts I've spoken to a pretty concerned that it's unsustainable now the Kurds made this deal with the devil because they said hey they want to save as many people as possible and as much of their territory what the has kind of practically changed as a result of this alliance between the and the government of acid so Assad's forces are pretty much become a third player in this fight as soon as the deal was signed yesterday assets forces immediately pushed forward into the tournaments zone and as we speak facing off with the Turks on a number of locations so there's no reports yet of any hostilities between the Turks and Assad's forces it seems that's asset as you know is backed mainly by Russia and Iran and it seems the Russians are trying to mediate to avoid any clashes between Assad's forces and the Turks and also the remaining US forces in the region yes speaking of his remaining US forces in the region where are they in all of this chaos will president trump has this afternoon confirmed an order evacuate all the remaining US troops out of northern eastern Syria there will be a small post maintained in the south of the country but that's different unrelated mission but in effect the mission to hell the SPF and the Kurds is over however that so much easier said than done because you have the situation now where several hundred of America's I special forces are scattered around a war zone in small groups an under orders to get themselves out and remember they have no friends left amongst the warring parties Eh president trump for his part this afternoon also condemned the Turkish incursion and announced he would be imposing sanctions against current and former officials of the accused government and he said quote I am fully prepared to destroy Turkey's economy if Turkish leaders continue down this dangerous and destructive path but it must be said Marco that the president's tweets and comments about Turkey and Syria today contain many false and misleading statements finally what is happening with Isis because we see reports of vices supporters are fighters escaped from detention they're definitely back and out in the open thanks to the chaos unleashed by this invasion are now in effect the fourth major player in this fight the area occupied by the SPF as you may well know was the heart of the Isis Caliphate with its capital at Rucker isis sleeper cells appear now to have been activated and are carrying out attacks including bombings and assassinations Thomas McClure of the regime information center in Commissioner in northeast Syria at this detail their income slow by what was my favorite philosopher shop was targeted by Isis double car bombing that four civilians Lopes that lives experts that I've spoken to say the conflict is definitely a short in the into the Islamic state.

Just quality affordable. I wear delivered right to you visits. Any today at Xeni dot com slash CNN. U S foreign policy towards Syria. What is it exactly? Why is that a question now more than ever before the Trump administration, and are you as through pulling out or staying put even the president doesn't seem to know right now? This is the state of America. There is breaking news CNN has learned the United States is preparing a full in rapid withdrawal of troops from Syria. I don't know who advised that this decision be made. But it's a terrible mistake. There will be a strong delivered an orderly withdrawal President Trump has just announced that the Defense Secretary James Mattis is leaving. This is somebody inside the administration standing up to the president and saying you are going on the wrong direction here, and I can't serve you floor mixed messages from the White House. The president's Admiral security adviser now says there will be no rapid with growl. Who speaking Gloria for the US? Well is a really good question. Is it the president's a really good question. Log on. I'm Kate Baldwin in New York to our viewers watching around the world. This is state of America. US troops are leaving Syria. Or are they really this isn't one of those issues with a lot of gray area or really any gray area at all. But somehow the Trump administration has been able to find it leaving pretty much everyone from US lawmakers to US generals to US allies overseas left in the dark. It all started with this. A surprise Twitter announcement from the president last month. We've been fighting for a long time in Syria. I've been president for almost two years, and we've really stepped it up, and we have one against ISIS. We've beaten them and we've beaten a badly we've taken back the land. And now it's time for our troops to come back home. His words. There are king. First of all ISIS has not been defeated in Syria. Just a day after the tweet CNN got exclusive video of ISIS attacks in northern Syria. But that's oddly almost beside the point here when the president said they're all coming back. He also added and they're coming back. Now that shocked everyone, including the Defense Secretary Jim Mattis who then abruptly resigned over the shift in strategy writing in his parting letter to the president that he deserves the secretary who's quote views are better aligned with yours on these and other subjects. Jim medicine is someone who very much stands on his character his ethics, and feels responsibility to the troops for forty years on a deeply emotional basis for him to make this decision tonight to say because you have the right to a secretary of defense whose views are better aligned with yours. This is Jim Mattis telling Donald Trump, I can no longer serve you add to that the announcement left. Trump's allies on Capitol Hill almost speechless. I can assure you it was done not based on sound military. Vice all the advice the president received from his national security team. Was this not time to withdraw from Syria that ISIS will come back. They have not been defeated. This is a giant step backward. At that point the immediate withdrawal meant thirty days about a week later during the president's surprise visit to Iraq. He described the decision making process this way. I said, let's get out of Syria. Let's bring our young people home, and they should, sir. We have six more months. I said you got six months. Let's go, and I gave her six months, then I said, let's get out. And they said sure could we have six months. I said. Yep. You got to explore pints? And and they said again, recently, we have more time as it. Nope. You can't have any more time. Following that trip? The timetable started to slip thirty days became a four month withdrawal. But even then the president said this. Slowly describing withdrawal. I never said Castro slung. When you know, somebody said four months, but I didn't I didn't say that either. I I'm getting out. We're getting out of cereal. And then the president's national security adviser went to Israel, and you would think from John Bolton the national security adviser. You would hear the same that you heard from the president that the troops are coming home. They're coming home now in ISIS is defeated. But no this happened. We're going to be discussing the president's decision to withdraw. But to do so from northeast Syria in a way that makes sure that ISIS is defeated and is not able to revive itself. Wait. What this is yet another record scratch moment here. These there are now conditions on the withdrawal. And now the administration's position is ISIS has not been defeated. And so troops are not coming home. Now, which maybe said a different way the administration's position is back to the Syria policy that was in place before Trump announced this earthquake shift in policy via Twitter. Well, that's how Senator Lindsey Graham seems to see it. And he's relieved. The president's slowing down and he's reevaluating his policies. I think this is the reality setting in that you gotta plan. This out another longtime Republican foreign policy expert, max boot, put it this way. Well, I'm wondering if tremendous can unrine now. Unlikely. Democrats, of course, put it another way. He's changing course like a drunken sailor. Okay. There's no thought behind it. What we need is actually rational policy in Syria on border security. All we have is the emotional rantings of a child. All right. And he goes back and forth. Depending on what the last person says the him. But wait, there's more. Now, the secretary of state might pump peyot is weighing in and trying to argue there's been no change, no shift and no contradiction from the Trump administration on Syria. We all just apparently either misheard or made it up. There's no contradiction whatsoever. This is a story made up by the media. And so it is it is possible to hold on your head. The thought that we could withdraw our forces are uniform forces from Syria and continue America's crushing campaign. Well, your head is spinning with that one. Please. Remember this the decision or lack thereof from the president resonates far beyond Syria where two thousand troops remain in limbo. There are also fourteen thousand US troops currently serving in Afghanistan. Still part of America's longest war and more than five thousand in Iraq. What are they supposed to think about their future? Who are they supposed to believe in terms of what's the strategy? What's the policy are they coming home or they stay in their questions that as of now have no easy answers, though. They deserve them. Let's go there right now, though clerks award is in northern Syria. She's joining me right now. Thank you so much for staying up to join me. I really appreciate it. Or Pentagon unit has been reporting that the first US military ground equipment is now being withdrawn from Syria is signal that the draw down is beginning. What does this and all the confusion over the policy mean there were you are?

"And by the way, we're not going to hell out of ISIS will become another serial very soon. Let the other people take care of it. Now, very soon. The problem is the sort of crude way that he sprang this on his own generals on our allies on congress has had the effect of short-circuiting the debate. So many people are so angry at the way he did it that it almost prevents us from having the underlying conversation, and that's a real shame. So as part of this Mark potentially a sign of the president's frustration with his generals with the military who may not be aligned with him at all on this America. First approach who have staying ghanistan, despite how endless it's feeling who wouldn't consider leaving Syria, despite we'll success in nearly Radic aiding ISIS there, I think that's a very important point. Because if you look at President Trump's experience in this area, he has been fighting a low grade battle with the Pentagon and the national security establishment to try to accomplish this broader goal last year. He was very hard on his advisors about Afghanistan. Why are we still in Afghanistan? My original instinct was to pull out and historically I like following my instincts, and instead of withdrawing troops, which was his inclination. He was talked into deploying four thousand more troops. But all my life. I've heard. That decisions are much different. When you sit behind the desk in the Oval Office, the consequences of a rapid exit are both predictable and unacceptable similarly with Syria. He said himself our presence in Syria was not open ended and was never intended to be permanent that every time he raised the issue of getting troops out of Syria. His generals would say just give me six more months. Go get him. We need six months. Go get. And they said give us another six months. I said go get him. And when he was in Baghdad he told the troops. In essence, I told the generals. Nope. I said I gave you a lot of six months. I've already given you six more months. You don't get another six more and Jim Mattis, his Defense Secretary who resigned in protest over this decision was one of the people who was actually a problem for the president in. This regard Mattis and the Pentagon have actually pushed back and slow walk the president on a lot of these policy initiatives. And I think what you also saw in. The president's announcement on Syria was a commander in chief in effect running out of patience saying you guys have pushed back on me for too long. And now, I'm just gonna pull the plug. So finally, what's going to happen to these two thousand troops there based in Syria now, well, it's somewhat hard to predict actually the president has sent his secretary of state and national security adviser out to the region to talk to the Turks to talk to the Israelis to try to reassure our allies. And so we will see sort of an uptick and diplomatic effort. And I think we will see a withdrawal forces. But the reason I say it's unpredictable as we have already seen a considerable backsliding from the president's original orders which were to withdraw troops within thirty days. Now, the Pentagon is saying actually will probably do it over four to six months..
