The US World Police
The Kurds have been faithful and resourceful allies in Afghanistan, Northern Iraq, and Syria. Many US Special Forces and Commanders will likely feel wrath at our abandoning the Kurds.
The President’s announcement of bringing home the troops from Syria will undoubtedly leave the Kurds, at Turkey’s “National Interest”, or possibly genocide.
However, our longest war in the Mideast, needs a fresh look and hard choices.
