This is not the first time a politician has said or done something the neocons did not like, I can give you good examples of presidents saying and doing things that annoyed the neocon elites. Trump was very critiical against regime change operations and wars but has continued every single one of em started before him, he even tried his luck in Venezuela but has failed so far(so far as he has not given up yet). Talk is cheap, real change in policy on the other hand is very rare and expensive in Washington

    Look for the latter not the former
    He promoted Rand's book then he retweeted Massie to his entire base.

    He didn't have to do that. That is strictly what I am celebrating.

    Touche, I think that is might of him to do so and on that one issue I agree with you. It's work celebrating. I hope it leads to something great.

    President Trump declared Thursday "a great day for civilization" as Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced terms of a cease-fire agreement that would end violence between Turkey and Kurds in Syria, following a meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara.
    The deal is for a 120-hour cease-fire, during which time the Kurdish-led forces could pull back from the roughly 20-mile-wide safe zone on the Turkish-Syrian border. All Turkish military operations under the recent offensive known as Operation Peace Spring will pause during that time, and the operation itself will come to an end entirely upon the completion of the Kurdish withdrawal, under the terms of the deal.

    Over-selling things as usual. It is only a temporary cease-fire. Civilization has not been saved.

    All fighting will be paused for five days, and the US will help facilitate an "orderly withdrawal" of Kurdish-led troops from what Turkey terms a "safe zone" on the border, Mr Pence said.
    Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told journalists the offensive would only be permanently halted when the SDF had left the border zone.

    "We are suspending the operation, not halting it," he said. "We will halt the operation only after [Kurdish forces] completely withdraw from the region."

    Assad and the Russians are also putting themselves between the Turks and the Kurds so that will put an end to it too.

    Wow. Last night Trump spent a significant amount of time talking about ending endless wars at his rally. Some people started chanting bring them home. Non interventionism is really putting America First, winning policy if he adopts it.

    "We will be out of Syria in 30 days". Trump- December, 2018.

    "Lock her up! Lock her up!" he also got people to chant at rallies. Did he lock her up? He says lots of things at rallies he never really does.

    This does not look like Lavon Affair type development to stop US exit from mideast. But it was never confirmed apparently who was behind attack on Saudi oil installations protected by advanced Patriot technology.
