US Retreat from Syria Border Begins, Kurdish Allies Betrayed
The withdrawal of US Troops from the border region of NE Syria began earlier today. The White House announced the retreat late last night, triggering widespread condemnation from US Allies. The US partnered with Kurdish Allies to defeat ISIS.
With ISIS now largely non-existent, Turkey hopes to establish their own dominance in the area. The US withdrawal opens the door for an onslaught from Turkey and possibly Russia against the Kurds.
This betrayal by the US will be remembered by Allies for decades. After working together to defeat one of the most evil groups rising in the globe, Trump is now essentially abandoning the Kurds and giving a green light to Turkish military operations to destroy the militia.
