“The BBC has uncovered details of a secret deal that let hundreds of IS fighters and their families escape from Raqqa, under the gaze of the US and British-led coalition and Kurdish-led forces who control the city.
A convoy included some of IS’s most notorious members and – despite reassurances – dozens of foreign fighters. Some of those have spread out across Syria, even making it as far as Turkey.”
See Raqqa’s dirty secretDonald Trump has often touted how tough he would be on Murdering Bastards in Syria but it turns out his crew allowed hundreds of the bastards leave Raqqa in a convoy to avoid a fight to the death. It’s not clear what the outcome of that escape is but it’s not what Trump promised and these bastards will probably end up costing more lives and treasure for some time to come.
I get military expediency. I get minimizing imminent deaths. I don’t get why Trump trumpets one thing and does another. USA is just a part of the attack on the murdering bastards but Trump wants to take all the credit and avoid all the blame, like a child lying to parents. A child can be forgiven for telling little lies. Trump’s lies are too enormous to forgive. Don’t forget at the next opportunity to vote Trump and his supporters out of office. They are not making the world a better place. Trump promised annihilation and delivered a route for escape.
