BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:30 A.M.) – The U.S. Coalition forces have allegedly withdrawn from the Turkish border with Syria, the Sputnik News Agency reported, citing the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The Kurdish-led forces also noted that U.S. forces began withdrawing from the border after not meeting “their commitments”. The SDF also stated they “won’t hesitate for a moment” in defending themselves against Turkey.

According to the Syrian Democratic Forces, this Turkish military operation will cause a resurgence of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS, Daesh) in the regions they control.

The U.S. Armed Forces have not responded to these latest allegations; however, if true, this would signal a green light for the Turkish military invasion of northern Syria.

Turkey considers the U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and their allies from the People’s Protection Units (YPG) to be terrorist entities that are offshoots of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).

The last time Trump said he was pulling out the Kurds ran too Assad for protection. As soon as Trump changed his mind the Kurds told Assad too push off. This time Assad should wait until the Kurds and Turks have bleed each other a little before talking.

So after failing to protect their client state, Saudi Arabia, for the US’ next trick, they turn tail and run out of Syria.

Something about 20th century weapons of the US not effective against 21st century weapons?

What am I missing?

I believe we might be missing a larger picture here. I am looking at this development differently. Americans are not gonna let down the Kurds, they have a bigger reason to be in the place where they are right now and they need the Kurds to be on their side. Daesh cannot be allowed to come back. ErDOG & Turki has been pressurizing Trump and American Forces to stay out of their way in the attack against Kurds. Americans have had several round of discussions and clearly told the Turks to back off. But it looks like it has fallen… Read more »

what a meathead Trump: the consequences of his foolish decision will be many: millions of more refugees, thousands of deads, also Turkish youngsters, new support for Isis, etc. …last but not least a continuous war that seemed almost finished…of course the Kurds will create many big problems for the dictator Erdogan who entered the last sad period of his Osmano-lunatic carreer!!

Could go far further : ErDOG is seen as even a bigger danger than Iran by Gulf monarchies+Israel…
The question now is will we let this shït happen. With the penguins we have, I’m not convinced of their will to enforce a NFZ

A move unanimously lambasted as an US treason on Kurds and a boon for ISIS in international press, even by Fox News…

So when the MSM , CNN, MSBNC Fox and others say anything you don’t like it is Fake News , B/S but when they say something you like it becomes proof positive. The cake can only be cut so many ways.
