Vice President Mike Pence delivered a five-day ceasefire with Turkey after President Donald Trump agreed to pull out American troops so Turkey could bomb the Kurdish people.
Thousands of people have been displaced, thousands have been killed or wounded as a result of Turkey's bombing campaign.
The United States was forced to bomb our own military base to prevent ISIS, Syria and Russian troops to have access to American military information and equipment. The Turkish bombing began so quickly that the American military couldn't conduct a withdrawal the proper way. American soldiers were also fired on so heavily that they almost fired back in self-defense.
The president tweeted a humble brag about the success of the five-day deal to a problem that he caused.
The "deal" that Pence managed to negotiate only gives a few days to withdraw American troops and Kurdish people. There are 21 million Kurds who live in Syria. Any Kurds left in the area Turkey says they govern will be killed after the five-day ceasefire.
The so-called deal was questioned by many online, wondering how five days was considered a ceasefire.

The 120-hour ceasefire feels phony to me. I hope I’m wrong.— Laurence Tribe (@Laurence Tribe)1571335270.0
Wait....so the ceasefire for five days is so that the threatened sanctions against Turkey won't go into effect? Do I have that right?— Jonathan Capehart (@Jonathan Capehart)1571335072.0
