  1. I guess some or lots of weapons were being sold to this US backed Syrian Opposition Forces. Sounds like Turkey is jealous!!! Or US forces hasn't left Syria yet!!!

  2. Book of Ezekiel talked about Prophesy concerning Syria(Damascus) city destroyed. We will not win this. Does not matter our opinions. Or any plans altogether. God has a hand on this happening and his words are never slow in coming. Get ready for the marching of the 200 million man from the east headed down. And Isreali forces surrounded by said Prophecies as well.

  3. We got our own war here in USA from garbage Commie Democrats need to vote out the American enemy is Democrats Commie!!

  4. As a vet who supports the constitution, I can tell you right now there are NO US-backed forces in the region, because any force in the region is fighting against the US constitution. We the people never authorized force in Syria. Anyone serving in Syria has violated their oath. I am not saying anything that our troops cannot bear to hear. I got out of the military when Clinton unconstitutionally involved us in Yugoslavia and committed the textbook definition of terrorism by targeting civilian infrastructure. I enlisted to serve the constitution, when it was clear that my enlistment would be abused by corrupt leadership, I had no choice but to refuse re-enlistment, if I wanted to honor my oath. These may be CIA backed forces, they may be pentagon backed forces, they are NOT US backed forces, the US is we the people and only our representatives can send US backed forces abroad. If you serve on such a mission, you are not serving my freedom, you are not giving me the right to say what I am saying, the second amendment gives me that right and those who serve on constitutional missions. And the only way to stop ISIS is to investigate where their funding came from.

  5. I think that most intelligent comment is about turkey and thanksgiving
    Turkey borders with syria and they rather keep it cool like it is now instead of backing up fighters and making mess…. do not be surprised they dont wont it otherwise ur stupid ignorant

  6. Our enemy's surround us from all sides.. and I am afraid when one starts swinging they all will.. it's gonna be a hell of a fight y'all, God be with us and God bless America

  7. The leader of Turkey is a fraud and people should check and see how he became into power but unfortunately media doesn't exist anymore and doesn't REPORT any news!! Just propaganda about impeachment of innocent president trump!! Or carry on with fake Russia Ukraine narrative which is all they do!!!

  8. What's the u.s still doing in Syria backing opposition forces against the people's government? Can someone do same in America? Look at how you're so obsessed with election interference without any evidence that any vote was actually changed. Yet you're going round sabotaging other countries. Hypocrites.

  9. What has America achieved in the middle east since 2003 ZERO for all the trillions spent and lives lost the result is Zero and now its entered minus Zero lol

  10. Turkey threatening the US? Lol with a name like turkey it's hard to take them seriously. Thanksgiving is right around the corner so maybe the US needs to smoke turkey on turkey day. Trump2020

  11. I understand that the leader of another nation better be ready to back up any ultimatum they announce. However, would it not be easy to simply publicly announce that if Turkey attacks US backed forces in Syria that the US will be forced to defend and retaliate in the most brutal ways. That would put two NATO allies at war. Very interesting stuff.

  12. Interesting fact 1: more than 80% of all Syrian oil reserves are just coincide (sarcastic) in region where are US backed Syrian opposition today
    Interesting fact 2: So called Syrian oposition are predominantly Kurdish peoples (today not in the past) who never lived in exactly that with oil rich area they moved there when so called IS left that area with almost no fight…strange? nahhh

  13. Turkey has No Place in NATO.
    At least Not with the Current Dictator at the Helm.
    Suspend Membership at least for now!

  14. Should just let them all slug it out on their own. Their wars will never end. Trying to stabilize the middle east is like trying to fight back the tide. With a fork.

  15. Turkey is worried about it's southern border. Democrats already busy gathering American tax dollars to help Turkey build a wall.

  16. Why is the US supporting the "opposition" in Syria?
    Who is that "opposition"?
    Opposition to … what?

    Get out of Syria!
    Respectively, if the US wants to support anything in Syria then Assad to rebuild the country and the refugees from Europe and Turkey to get back to their homes!

  17. Trump supporters are the dumbest species to walk the earth. With all the evidence against Trump, they still wanna such his balls. Your president is going to jail, get over it

  18. First 200 comments on Fox pages are clearly coming from a pro war opinion, then 2 weeks later pages reflect totally different atmosphere. Don’t be influenced by “apparent” general opinion. Nobody wanna stay in Syria.

  19. Turkey will attack, comon this news has been reported everywhere for some time, u report now, what happend to the trump news? There many more international news going on, that is pointed against US…

  20. Do we even know who we are at war with? Do they have a weapons industry? Can we not target that? Who is supplying them? Why does this go on and on forever?

  21. Thats legit. I'm really sad that Proxy wars are still happening. It's a shame. Pull out. Offer police training and schools.
    Don't offer armed rebles, it's disgustingly hypocritical. And morally wrong. Offer the carrot you nincompoops

  22. Anyone who joins the service is stupid. We can defend and police the whole middle east but can't police and defend our OWN BORDERS from foreign invaders. Yet we have to send our soldiers farther into dangerous because that's what Turkey want. Turkish citizens should be defending their own country NOT AMERICANS!!!!

  23. It's a good time to move out ,let Turkey bring security in and secure the prisoner's and get our troops out and come home , if we are not doing enough let Turkey do it all

  24. Turkey could unwantedly be thrown into military fiascoes by dispatching Turkish forces deep into Syrian territory to attack US-backed anti-Turkey rebel forces reinforced with anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles. One step into the battle field leads to reluctant intervention in Syrian internal conflicts. Turkey's economy and military aspirations have no long range basis for new military spending upto now. Only a hope for Turkish people.

  25. Oh you mean ISIS when you say opposition forces.
    This is why no one likes US anymore and why over 25 US soldiers commit suicide every day !

  26. Turkey leadership is crooked as all hell and has been playing footsies for a long time now selling ISIS STOLEN oil through Syria into Turkey. Like the US doesn't have knowledge of this through our sadlite survalance. Follow the oil shipments and what countries are involved. "BINGO!
    "FOLLOW THE OILY BRICK ROAD".

  27. Fake News. Turkey isn't going to do anything. Honestly, media, you are getting so bad with the fake news.

    We'll see what happens.

  28. Just shut down their American made fighter aircraft! If we sold them our military aircraft without proper security to shut them down then we are making a huge mistake.
