Trump Administration Turns Back on Kurdish Allies, Lets Turkey Invade Syria

Recep Erdoğan

In a statement late on Sunday, the White House announced it will withdraw from a secure zone in Syria to allow Turkey to move in and create a zone of its own.

There’s only one problem.  This zone already has occupants, the Kurds, who were frontline fighters against ISIS and ISIL on behalf of the U.S. and other Allied nations.

The Turks don’t care for the Kurds because the 20 million-plus Kurds are spread across a region that includes parts of Syria, Turkey, and Iraq.  They’re the largest ethnic group in the world without a home, and Turkey doesn’t want them demanding separation or setting up anything that looks like an independent state.

When the U.S. leaves the area, the Turks will move in to destroy the Kurds.

After relying on the Kurds to fight ISIS and other terrorist elements on our behalf, and even praising them for years for their efforts and success, we’re now turning our backs on them.

Former South Carolina Governor and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley tweeted:

We must always have the backs of our allies, if we expect them to have our back. The Kurds were instrumental in our successful fight against ISIS in Syria. Leaving them to die is a big mistake.

Yep, what she said.

    • We deserted our allies in Vietnam. How long do we stay in Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq? My view is, since we did not do as we did in Germany and Japan and change “Hearts and Minds” staying will only add to our casualty count until we do a Vietnam, which we will. We do not have unlimited lives and money to support this region. President Trump called it correctly in Ukraine and is getting there in the above listed countries. Europe has much greater need regarding these countries and Europe should be supplying the Lives and money to deal if the UN won’t.

  1. We cannot defend the entire world
    Our men and women do not have a quarrel with the Turks which just happens to have the largest army on the planet

  2. It is time to remove our (American) troops from being involved in foreign
    conflicts. For a change let the rich Arabic powers in that area stand tall.
    The deep state and the industrial military complex Eisenhauer warned against
    are the only ones shouting the war cry in order to gain fame, power and get rich by sacrificing the blood of innocent American children.

  3. WHY SHOULD WE ALWAYS SEND OUR TROOPS TO FIGHT AND DIE FOR OTHERS, LOOK WHAT IT GOT US IN WW11 WE SAVEDRUSSIA’S BUTT AND SINCE THEN THEY HAVE FOUGHT USA IN KOREA,VIETNAM AND THE 40 YEAR COLD WAR AND THEY ARE STILL OVER FLYING OUR SHIPS IN THE PACIFIC, I KNOW I SERVED ON 6 A/C CARRIERS AND SEEN THEM PLUS IN THE INDIAN OCEAN THEY TRIED TO RUN A SMALL SHIP IN FRONT OF OUR CARRIER W.A SUPPLY SHIP ON EITHER SIDE AND A DESTROYER ALONGSIDE THE SUPPLY SHIPS, THERE WAS NO WAY WE COULD TURN SO THE ADMIRAL ORDERED ONE OF OUR OTHER DESTROYERS TO RAM THEIR SHIP, THEY EVADED,

  4. Eisenhauer warned the American public in his parting address against the powerful industrial – military complex. No more American innocent blood to enrich the deep state.

  5. Shouldn’t you wait or state your premise that Turkey has already gone into the Kurdish areas of which country? This article misconstrues our original purpose to reduce the Islamic State which was the size of half o Syria and half of Iraq with establishing a Kurdistan. One was out mission accomplished without any gratitude from either side of the aisle and creating a state for the Kurds.

  6. How many soldiers do we have to lose before we come to the realization that we cannot police the whole world! It is time these countries start fighting their own battles. Let the middle east countries come together to develop a plan to combat terrorism! BRING THEM HOME!!!

  7. President Trump knows the climate better than anybody and I think if he says were out than get out. The man just knows what he is doing. He knows who starts this crab and why. He is no fool and will guide the country the right way. There is nobody else I would trust more. He gets the very best intel you can get, leave it at that. Don’t let the media stir the pot they are bought and paid for by the crooks of the world.

  8. Ilene, you are so right.
    This is a huge MISTAKE, President Trump.
    The kurds are our allies we must protect them and their land. I have never felt that Turkey is altruistic and like Rusdia, is out to take land.

    Please reconsider, Donald Trump. You are being played by Turkey! Listen to your military advisors now.

  9. Trump doesn’t listen to anyone on his staff. If they say something that is truthful and well meaning, but goes against his own way of handling the world and the US, he fires them. If the leaders of his own party, who’ve been in office for decades won’t support the decision to withdraw from Syria, how can his supporter base support a decision to back stab our allies who have been fighting against the biggest threat to not only our country but the world??

  10. HUGE, HUGE MISTAKE!!!!!
    The Kurds have been our friends and Allies during each of these Muslim actions for decades. We have American citizen imbedded in the Kurds army. At least leave them a few hundred tank busters and shoulder fired surface to air missiles.
