During an appearance on THE LATE SHOW, former Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice sounded off on President Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria. She called the announcement ‘Bats-Crazy’. She explained her stance saying the Kurds in Syria are the people who have been fighting on U.S.’s behalf since last 4 years to defeat ISIS and that U.S. has basically said to them, ‘see ya!’.

Turkey, according to Rice, is the hungry wolf who is trying to kill the lamb. She found the complete decision appalling because America promised a partnership and that if they worked with Americans to defeat the common enemy then they will stand together. “And Trump woke up on the wrong side of the bed, it appears, and decided ‘Never mind,” she concluded.

Rice credited the republican lawmakers who got the pulse today and by large condemned Trump’s decision and insisted it “must be really bad.” She mentioned there is no ‘understandable’ justification possible on it. Trump has only be saying ‘we’ve been at war for too long. ‘I’m sick and tired of all of this. Somebody else should take up the burden,’ she said. Colbert who interjected that it isn’t a bad argument as America has been at war for a long time since 2001.

Rice pushed back that there are different wars as this is a war that America has been involved in very smartly through partners as American service members are not in combat on the ground in Syria. “They have been advising and supporting the Kurdish allies who have taken the fight effectively to ISIS. That’s a smart way to fight terrorism. And that’s what we started and that’s what we pursued during the Obama administration.”

Rural America needs help with Affordable Housing

America has been facing the issue of affordable housing in major cities and fast-growing urban areas for so many years now, that we almost take it for granted. But what we did not see coming, as a nation, was the same problem sprouting in rural America. This is what is going on, right now, as people from all financial spectrums struggle to find a house that they can afford. Here is why and which solutions should be looked at.

Not enough Jobs, Education and Health Care Availability

What explains housing difficulties is the same as in all other economic sectors: The offer is not sufficient for the demand. And why is that, in rural America? The answer is simple: There are not enough jobs to be handed out in these parts. Also, the children lack sufficient education, and the people are not provided with good health care facilities. Therefore, you don’t find contractors that want to build more homes to invest in the future, in these regions, even though there are more people living there, every year.

Also, most of the houses that exist need to be renovated. They require new facade systems, in order to become more energy efficient. The people that live in these parts, barely make enough to make ends meet, and they have to pay higher energy bills, simply because they can’t afford new aluminium windows and doors, that would greatly reduce their costs. New sustainable materials need to be added outside their walls, to protect their home from high or low temperatures outside. But instead, they are simply fighting each other to find a house that they can live in, at an inflated price, and that won’t even provide them sufficient protection in the warmest and coolest months of the year.

Public Investment is required to start the Process

Money is at the core of the problem. To built more houses, or to renovate the ones that already exist in rural America, a large investment will need to be made. Since it is clear that private owners are scared to enter into this rebuilding of the land by themselves, the different levels of governments need to envision new help plans that will make all this possible. But it isn’t the only investment they must make.

Today, wages are not growing as fast as they were before. We find ourselves in uncertain times, thanks to the COVID-19 crisis and the current war going on in Ukraine. Having a larger part of the population to buy a house, is simply impossible in view of these issues. And yet, this is exactly what rural America needs. Therefore, young adults need to be helped, in some ways, in order to create a larger group of potential home buyers. This will help kick-start the market of housing in rural America, which hopefully will create a dynamic that will continue on, with wealthier individuals investing in construction, in these areas.

Affordable housing has become a necessity in rural America. Otherwise, small towns will continue to disappear. This is not a long-term solution for a growing America, that wants to lead by example.
