Romney Tears into Trump Over Syria: ‘A Bloodstain in the Annals of American History’

‘The ceasefire does not change the fact that America has abandoned an ally adding insult to dishonor, the administration speaks cavalierly, even flippantly, even as our ally has suffered death and casualty’

EXCERPT:
ROMNEY: “The ceasefire does not change the fact that America has abandoned an ally adding insult to dishonor, the administration speaks cavalierly, even flippantly, even as our ally has suffered death and casualty. Their homes have been burned and their families have been torn apart. We know the truth about our occurred allies owe Kurd allies. They lost 11,000 combatants in our joint effort to defeat ISIS. …The Kurds lost thousands of lives. 86 brave Americans also lost their lives so tragically. It’s argued that the Kurds were fighting for themselves. Of course they were. That’s the nature of an alliance. We fight together, each pursuing our own vital interests. America leaves no soldiers behind. Often a great cost in blood and treasure, we recover our dead and our wounded and we free our men and women who are held captive. This is a matter of American honor and promise. So, too, is the principle that we stand by our allies, that we do not abandon our friends, the decision to abandon the Kurds violates one of our most sacred duties. It strikes at American honor.”
