Is this another example of the fallout from US diplomacy?
1. To get Turkey's support, we allow them to kill Kurds and fund ISIS?
2. To get Saudi Arabia's support, we allow them to destroy Yemen?
3. To procure weapons for our terrorists in Syria, we destroy Libya, murder its leader, and allow our own ambassador to be killed?
The "diplomats" responsible for such things should be fired. The military persons who participated in them should be publicly shamed.
