Once the United States of America stood for honor and for supporting the “underdog.” When needed, we stood for democracy and what goes with it.

As of late we have shown the world that we are “making America great again” by abandoning our European friends while courting Russia's Vladimir Putin.

Twice now we have left our Kurdish allies after they have faithfully done our dirty work in Iraq and in Syria.

I have to say “Shame on us,” and we are guilty for every human being killed by the ruthless Turks.
