POTUS ScottMorrisonMP wong labor wrong This deal could NEVER have been made 3 days ago. There needed to be some “tough” love in order to get it done. Great for everybody. Proud of all! Wong all this proves is your a warmonger Thank God Wong isn’t our Foreign Minister 🙄 POTUS ScottMorrisonMP Wong wrong “government should call out US President Donald Trump'

POTUS ScottMorrisonMP Wong wrong “government should call out US President Donald Trump' This deal could NEVER have been made 3 days ago. There needed to be some “tough” love in order to get it done. Great for everybody she is a labour lightweight and a lunatic to boot ! Blah blah blah. Was the Ms Wong?

buque09 330G's/yr PLUS all the perks for an opinion no one cares about...its all Wong in my book! Maybe trump shouldn’t pull out but this what he said he was going to do None of your business Sen Wong!

Turkey ready for Syria offensive despite mixed signals from TrumpAnkara has brushed aside Donald Trump's warnings against Turkey, with Vice-President Fuat Oktay saying: 'Turkey is not a country that will act according to threats.'

The US went in and helped the Kurds in their own country by providing training, money and arms so they could defeat ISIS, with that done why should it be up to the US to stay there and get caught up in yet another endless war surrounded by people that hate them? This ditzy cow thought she was going to be Foreign Minister 🤣🤣

Trumps correct worst thing the west ever did was get involved in the middle easts religious wars all it did was spread the disease far and wide have a look at the hate filled smugness Who cares what sucked on a lemon face Wong says She’s in opposition And she’s wrong The wonderful SenatorWong stepping up again for the ALP.

Hold the phone! Do I understand this correctly? Labor is concerned that the US is withdrawing from Syria? Aren’t they normally opposed to US/AUST involvement in regional disputes Hypocrite Say again? Why is Donald Trump responsible for the Kurds? Why aren't ALL the EU countries sending troops to help?

Maybe penny and Greta could go over and sort it out. Why is it just the US responsibility. Why doesn’t the EU who lecture to the world send combined forces in. Would Labor send Australian troops?

'Complete betrayal': Kurdish community braces for Syria 'bloodbath', urges Turkey boycottThe Australian Kurdish community is urging the Morrison government to join global action to prevent a 'bloodbath' in northern Syria after accusing Donald Trump of a 'complete betrayal' It's not our job to fight your wars My sympathies to your community, you have been betrayed and hopefully Trump will suffer in some way as his penance. No. Australia shouldn’t be involved

rainey_knight Sky News only serves credibility to RWNJs. Whats the point of anyone else speaking or giving comment. We nave bigger issues here to worry about. Let them kill themselves. You can never please this lot. I don’t think President Trump would be too worried about Kenny Wong “calling him out”....JOKE rabidgreenlunaticleftcircus

Easy sitting in opposition. I think he is too smart for mainstream politicians! The US military is not the world's police force. The left whinges about the military industrial complex but then turns around and bitches about Trump pulling troops out!? Hypocrites... Penny Wong should go back to sleep with the rest of the Labor Party and leave Governance to those in charge. Labor wisdom? Yep, its a joke.

As always, Australia is the little bitch of the United States. This i can assure you, will never change. Trying to be big and tough but laughed at by everyone else in the world. Just sit in your corner and accept it, what you say doesn’t matter nor count by anybody. Mind your own fxxking business.

Turkey launches attack on Syria 'to destroy terror'Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has confirmed the country&x27;s Armed Forces have passed into northern Syria to &x27;neutralise terror threats&x27;.

Labour seem to take the same position as chinas on a lot of issues auspol Funny that Labor have no real policies or ideas for Australia and our future but Comment on other countries and their polical positions Labor needs to worry about Australia. Not what the US does. Here's a tip Penny, if you could do half of what Trump has done you might have a chance until then the shadow is all you will be. Remember Blue collar workers was the backbone of your party. Not leftist minority groups

Why? That’s Trump’s decision? Does it affect our troops? AustralianLabor SenatorWong AustralianLabor love communists & dictators. Mean while China abuse people's basic rights and continue to be the world's biggest polluter and nothing is said. Who? SenatorWong Hey Penny, we have uniforms in your size. What day is good for you to leave? Will today work?

wong labor cowardly attack on POTUS POTUS warned Turkey on Kurds POTUS says “ending all these endless wars US get in around the world” Years ago Obama said US leaves Syria after 30 days '$ 8 Trillion dollars wasted too many US lives lost already'

Turkey launches ground assault on Kurdish positions in Syria after US withdrawalTurkish forces, supported by Syrian militants, have launched a ground offensive into Syrian territory as part of its operation against Kurdish forces Who could possibly have foreseen this?

ALP has international criminal tendencies. USA was/is in Syria illegally, commits international crimes. USA's troops in Syria are illegal under UN charter & unconstitutional as per USA. ALP shows to Aust how utterly hypocritical & devoid of any legal or moral compass it truly is. Trump is a war mongerer! Trump will cause WW3! Also, stop pulling troops out of the Middle East. And stop negotiating with North Korea! And stop doing what you campaigned on!

We can’t dictate to the US what it does. It’s as bad as Macron complaining but not sending French troops to help and spill their blood at great cost. Everyone relies on the US to do the heavy lifting. Hypocritical and then some -blame Trump for everything then say he has withdrawn military where they do not have to be

I disagree with much of Penny’s politics, but I believe she will be PM one day. It’s only a matter of time. It’s the United States 🇺🇸 decision so fck off Wong it’s bad enough you sound like nosey China 🇨🇳 telling us what to do. President Trump destroys wongs labors cowardly attack POTUS is withdrawing US troops who three years ago were told would be there for 30 days POTUS says why should anymore US troops die acting as an ungrateful worlds police officer in Syria

Point is, Obama sat on his hands and did nothing, now POTUS has to try to do something with the mess. Ok, for a Labor opposition spokes person from Australia to be all care with no responsibility. Go away Penny ! Penny is Wong. Labor is a joke at the moment beware Bill is making a comeback Albo 🤣😂🤣

Turkey launches invasion of Syria just days after US withdrawalTurkey is launching an aggresive military operation in Syria just days after US President Donald Trump pulled troops from the region. 9News Is 🇹🇷 Turkey 🇹🇷 accountable to any international ⚖ justice ⚖ body if they invade a sovereign nation & start Massacring Kurds? How much of their Murderous Military Madness have been Green Lighted by the 🇺🇸 Trump 🇺🇸 Administration? Has anyone in the 🇺🇸 US 🇺🇸 received payoffs? SyriaWithdrawal SyriaWar SyrianKurds 9News 'It's typical of DonaldTrump to withdraw before finishing the job!' - Melania Y'all send China to help the Kurds now enough Americans lives lost already.

So labor would deploy troops ? So vague auspol

It’s not America’s war! You criticise them one minute for staying too long. Then you criticise USA for leaving. Just confess your deep socialist hatred of America and the freedom it represents. Coalition making you all look stupid I’m afraid to say. Let Brussels sort it out. another cowardly attack by labor against POTUS POTUS said enough US troops have died Obama never should have sent them 'We will remember PM John Howard with gratitude and Paul Keating labor with contempt Nobel prize winner Ramos-Horta – Reuter

I’m pretty sure that I heard Donald trump say oxygen was a good thing and everyone should breathe more Thanks for telling us what your wing of Politics thinks, what about doing the correct thing, the thing of true politics & tell us what the arguments are!! Looser... (not for you but for the Australian people for voting for you),,

Fairly certain the left bellowed for years that should be no western nation involvement in the Middle East and now criticism for leaving, the Donald can’t win Zzzzzz your opinion carries no weight. Quiet Labor Party. Let the adults deal with this. 50 FFS

Why Turkey wants to invade Kurdish-controlled parts of SyriaThe Kurds of northern Syria are known as frontline fighters in the battle to defeat the Islamic State. So why does Turkey now want to invade and force them out? The European powers really did a number on the locals when they decided how the borders of that region would be drawn up. Its in their nature to invade, kill and enslave; they have been doing it for 9 centuries..they nvr stop “ shows a picture of women fighters to change public view” should be the headline

Labor are in deep turmoil again, they can't even agree on a direction, laboreatingthemselvesagain
