Buttigieg stated, “Putting an end to limitless war does not imply ending American engagement around the globe. Often it implies making certain we do our part to support or assist keep the peace so that full-blown disputes do not break out. However take a look at what occurred here. This isn’t even a strategy or a policy. It is the president systematically ruining American alliances and American vials, and that makes America even worse off. The 21 st century will be filled with these sort of unpleasant uneven conflicts, and we require to make certain the U.S. remains in a position to defend our interests and to measure up to our commitments to our allies. And right now we’re seeing the reverse. It is horrifying to see what is emerging not simply in terms of what is being done to Kurds but in terms of ISIS fighters now being released, precisely as we were alerted would take place. And we’re seeing the first reports of atrocities too.”
He continued, “And what is much more troubling as a veteran is hearing from soldiers who feel they are lost their honor and unable to look in the eye allies who put their lives on the line to combat with us and if you eliminate a soldier’s honor you might as well go after their body armor next, which is what the commander-in-chief is doing today.”

Not in a remarkable position to form outcomes worldwide and the effects of that are awful both for American worths and for American interests.”
