Trump: Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds

US President Donald Trump marked the onset of the US troop withdrawal from Syria with a new Twitter marking the high points of its aftermath. “Starting the long overdue pullout from Syria while hitting the little remaining ISIS territorial caliphate hard, and from many directions. Will attack again from existing nearby base if it reforms. Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds. Create 20-mile safe zone.” This is the first time one NATO has threatened another with economic warfare.

    An erdoganist person is unlikely to sink entirely into quicksand. Quicksand has a density of about 2 grams per milliliter, whereas the density of the human body is only about 1 gram per milliliter. At that level of density, sinking in quicksand is impossible. Descending about up to the waist is possible, but not any further. Continued or panicked movement, however, may cause a erdoganist person to sink further in the quicksand.

    Quicksand may be escaped by lean and mean movements of freeing the political adversaries from prisons and shaking hands with a gulenist person. Rotation of the body towards a direction of much much less authoritarianism and antisemitism is also known to help against a fast sinking.

    Best prevention is achieved by laying flowers to an Armenian Genocide memorial, and also by cutting down the key transit route for Southwest Asian heroin to Western Europe going through Istanbul.

    Trump, and I’m a supporter, won’t be around to “devastate” Turkey if they slaughter the Kurds. The Republicans will join with the Democrats to impeach him. He better defend the Kurds or else.
