At least 60 killed in Beirut explosion, thousands injured
A massive explosion has rocked the Lebanese capital of Beirut, killing at least 73 people, injuring close to 4000.
Actually... How about we wait and see eh? Instead of canning the POTUS eh! Don’t agree at all. If you’re going to criticise anyone, give NATO a serve. Do nothings, don’t pay their way and now standing idly by while Turkey, a NATO member, invades Syria. 2000 troops is hardly a lot. And not all Kurds are worth fighting for. The PKK are exremist communists.
Never thought i would say this. I actually agree with Credlin. Send Australian troops to fill the gap Whats your plan . Everyone’s an expert! Iran is upset about it too...do you know why? if far right Credlin thinks he's gone too far - then you know he's gone too far As much as I admire his determination to fix America he has got this very wrong it is simply disgusting to use defenceless people as pawns and hang them out die!
Who’s Peta Credlin? 826Maureen Really Perhaps you would like to replace the troops Now I’m confused. If Tony Abbott’s main advisor thinks it’s was a error of judgement, maybe it’s genius after all? Maybe. But I tend to think. Deeper motives. You can't bash the bully until they throw the first punch. How many troops are we talking about? Isn’t it a small number & only being withdrawn from northern Syria. Why is there no criticism of Turkey? Why is only criticism of the poor bastard from distant country who had to mop up IS? He can’t win if stays or if he partially withdraws.
Trump, the deal maker. Another enterprise failure. Hey Peta, we have a free ride waiting for you to go help. Pack up. Not another freakin neocon! With no insider knowledge of the real game being played here I suggest. No he has not - Trump knows exactly what he is doing - exactly why he is US President and no one else is. Maybe read and understand the book of Revelation before spouting off !!
That’s the smartest thing Credlin has ever said. he has only withdrawn 50 or so, American soldiers. Calm Down !! why has he made an error of judgement Perhaps not as big an error as when they were sent in? At last something we can all agree on. Oh except for Trump’s lackey, Scott “How Good Is Turkey” Morrison.
Ivanka opened new Trump Tower in Istanbul last week. As they say in the movies 'how convenient?'. credlin pmlive A “terrible error in judgment” is just an ordinary, slow Wednesday for Trump, isn’t it? ...despite his great and unmatched wisdom? Is Credlin's greater, or just a bit nearly as good, or a bit less? Trump must be negatively impressed.
Just wait for it.....its coming....and now we are involved, he is the shit on my shoe I cant scrape off..... Disagree on this one. He did the right thing bring troops home. If the rest of the world is so concerned they can go and occupy. Doubt we’ll see that but there all quick to criticise. Not according the experts, carolinemarcus, Cory Bernardi and Bolt_RSS think he done the right thing.
Has anyone considered the fact that perhaps he has intel on this that no one else has. I trust he knows what he is doing. Why doesn't she go and fight ? credlin Lo Peta you'll get nominated for a Logie with that lil bit of wisdom How does she even have a job much less criticise ANYONE. More than one allie who have betrayed the kurds auspol
Our pm needs to call it wrong now Ist time I agree with credlin but so has Morrison for not saying exactly that Peta is wrong He didn't make a mistake. America is tired of undeclared wars and Operation: USELESS DIRT. He needs his troops to save the Pacific region rather than the Middle East. The Middle East war will still be going long after we're dead so his theory is stock up on troops for when the big one starts with China.
Seeing Morrison supports Trump has Credlin climbed out of Morrisons arse to disagree with him
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.'
Morrison defends Trump over withdrawal of US troops from Syria | Sky News AustraliaPrime Minister Scott Morrison has defended US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw US troops from northern Syria.\n\nThe US president claimed sending troops to the Middle East was the worst mistake America had ever made. \n\nResponding to the announcement, Mr Morrison said “this is a sovereign decision” for Mr Trump, adding he would not make broad commentary on whether withdrawing troops was a right or wrong decision. \n\nImage: AP ScottMorrisonMP realDonaldTrump Before the US made bombs start dropping on the Kurds? Yeah good call ScottMorrisonMP realDonaldTrump Of course he did, he is embarrassing the way he sucks up to Trump. But what would you expect from a mini—me copy ScottMorrisonMP realDonaldTrump So Morrison didn’t ‘defend’ the decision he simply stated the obvious that it was an American decision.
Kurds feel 'totally betrayed' by President Trump | Sky News AustraliaKurdish Lobby Australia President Eziz Bawermend says the Kurdish people 'feel totally betrayed', namely by President Trump as Turkish forces begin a major offensive in north eastern Syria.\n\n'They don't feel betrayed by American people, in fact the support has been quite overwhelming, but they are very much frightened,' he said.\n\nUS Secretary of State Mike Pompeo defended President Trump's decision to withdraw troops from Syria, saying the president did not give Turkey the 'green light' to invade the country.\n\nMr Bawermend warns 'a massacre is very likely' with fears over 100,000 people could become refugees as a result of the incursion, including one million displaced internally.\n\nTurkish President Recep Erdogan said in a tweet, 'Our mission is to prevent the creation of a terror corridor across our southern border, and to bring peace to the area.'\n\n'Turkey is one of NATO's second-largest countries. It has American jet fighters, German tanks and French artillery,' Mr Bawermend said.\n\nImage: AP Have they asked China or the EU for help? Simple solution, President Trump made it very clear over 12 month ago that he want's to bring his troops home and that he does no longer want the USA to be the global police, other countries need to step up to the plate, ask the UN or NATO, Turkey is a member. Big deal. No one wants to fight for your third world hell hole auspol

And there is some big Mueller news happening as we speak, i'm sure the ABC will get to that 🧐🧐.
