Dr. Peter Pry: October 21, 2019
Dr. Pry explains why the troops needed to be pulled out of Syria to not risk a conflict with Iranian, Syrian or Russian troops not to mention terrorists. Dr. Pry explains why having our troops thinly spread throughout the world is not safe and we cannot sustain the burden of global security when we should be rebuilding our military and spending our resources to prevent a hot world war with peace through strength. Topic: Dr. Pry explains how we have nuclear weapons in Turkey and therefore getting into a military fight with Turkey over the Kurds is not in our national security interests. Dr. Pry explains why keeping Turkey inside NATO with accountability is vital to our national interests.
