House Foreign Affairs leaders seek protection of Kurds in Syria

Lawmakers introduced more legislation on Friday seeking to slap stiff sanctions on Turkey over its offensive against Kurdish fighters in Syria. Representatives Eliot Engel, the chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, and Mike McCaul, the committee’s ranking Republican, introduced a bill that would sanction Turkish officials involved in the Syria operation.

Not good enough. The sanctions need to hit the breadth of their entire economy. Suddenly Turkish adventurism won't be so attractive when the Lira is plunging in currency markets.

It is good to see the Congress agree with Trump for a change. We have no business being in that area with troops. If you feel different then go volunteer for the war they will gladly take you. Trump knows the Constitution Congress is the one that votes for war NOT the President. He is forcing them to put up or shut up. If congress feels so strong about what is going on with the PPK they can vote for war. We are not the Police for the middle east you warmongering leftist.
