Turkey's president has announced the start of an invasion as Kurdish forces move to defend the Turkish-Syrian border. The Kurds have been essential allies in the U.S. fight against ISIS, but President Trump announced he'd be abandoning them, breaking an American promise and pulling out of the region to allow Turkey to attack. CBS News correspondent Natalie Brand reports on the latest, and CBS News national security correspondent David Martin joined CBSN to discuss the military offensive.

Cadet bone spurs never showed up when his name was called fifty years ago.
He's protecting his real estate in Turkey instead of standing behind the Kurds who have been helping us fight Isis.
No trust. No leadership. No respect.

The U.S. gives up what tiny little amount of respectability we had in the region. By doing so he has said the only people with money are worthy allies in the Middle East and that it's doesn't matter your values he has just created a situation that could escalate to genocide and it's gonna happen again and again. Land of the free and home of the brave means nothing more to them than their wedding vows.
