They had no choice in 2013

The Syrian Army was completely routed and even Damascus was under siege. The SAA abandoned them. Not the other way around

Some of you ignorant fools talk as if you know whats happening in mideast. We live it. Fuck you go watch your tv shows. PKK are terrorists and they need to be destroyed. It's time the US packs its bags gets out of the mid east. They bring suffering to our lands.

You say so. Every soldier I've talked to deployed to syria says the same shit. "Half of them spoke farsi." And I'm at fort campbell, not that you and 99% of civilians will understand why that is more relevant.

So go fuck a hairless boy.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76448736


And the trucks that ISIS got came from Iran. They look exactly like the ones that all the Shia militias in Iraq have. The whole point was to use them as an excuse to take control of Iraq and Syria and also to use them as a tool against America and the West. And it worked like a charm.
AMERICA, FUCK YEAH!

I am a proud neoconservative. American global dominance is the only way. Isolationists beware.

The alt right supports America's enemies, worships tyrants, and bashes our allies. They are no better than the far leftists.

America should always be the world police. It's the only way to prevent the world from falling apart.

Yep, and they will have to withdraw their fighters from isis prison camps to defend their familys from the illegal turkish incurison/aggression.

Trump wont do jack, how about Putin, will he keep his promises to the kurds should the turks attack, which they now have.

U S forces did that, shorty. The Kurds just came along for the ride.
But neato story.

Clueless.

US provided air support, but fighters on the ground were Kurds.

Not one US soldier lost his life in Syria, while 11,000 Kurds did fighting ISIS on the ground.

Without the Kurds it would have been impossible, so writing that they came along from the ride is a statement detatched from reality.

It has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly coloured, and it's very loud and it's fun, for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question - is this real, or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us. They say 'Hey! Don't worry, don't be afraid, ever, because, this is just a ride.' And we...kill those people. Ha ha ha. 'Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride. SHUT HIM UP! -Bill Hicks

Re: BREAKING: Syrian Kurds under bombardment from Turkish jets urgently request air support from U.S. and “No fly zone” to protect civilians.
THE U.S. IS NOW BETRAYING THE KURDS FOR THE EIGHTH TIME

THE WHITE HOUSE announced Sunday night that the United States is giving Turkey a green light to invade northern Syria, with the U.S. troops there now apparently pulling back to another area of the country. This is the scenario that Syrian Kurds have long feared. It will almost inevitably lead to a Turkish attack on Kurdish militias in Syria — fighters who loyally helped the U.S. destroy the Islamic State, but whom Turkey bogusly claims to be terrorists.

On Monday morning, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman asked why Donald Trump made this decision:

What Krugman left out, however, is the most likely explanation: (d) Trump is president of the United States. Nothing in this world is certain except death, taxes, and America betraying the Kurds.

The U.S. has now betrayed the Kurds a minimum of eight times over the past 100 years. The reasons for this are straightforward.

The Kurds are an ethnic group of about 40 million people centered at the intersection of Turkey, Syria, Iran, and Iraq. Many naturally want their own state. The four countries in which they live naturally do not want that to happen.

On the one hand, the Kurds are a perfect tool for U.S. foreign policy. We can arm the Kurds in whichever of these countries is currently our enemy, whether to make trouble for that country’s government or to accomplish various other objectives. On the other hand, we don’t want the Kurds we’re utilizing to ever get too powerful. If that happened, the other Kurds — i.e., the ones living just across the border in whichever of these countries are currently our allies — might get ideas about freedom and independence.

Here’s how that dynamic has played out, over and over and over again since World War I.

Re: BREAKING: Syrian Kurds under bombardment from Turkish jets urgently request air support from U.S. and “No fly zone” to protect civilians.
THE U.S. IS NOW BETRAYING THE KURDS FOR THE EIGHTH TIME

THE WHITE HOUSE announced Sunday night that the United States is giving Turkey a green light to invade northern Syria, with the U.S. troops there now apparently pulling back to another area of the country. This is the scenario that Syrian Kurds have long feared. It will almost inevitably lead to a Turkish attack on Kurdish militias in Syria — fighters who loyally helped the U.S. destroy the Islamic State, but whom Turkey bogusly claims to be terrorists.

On Monday morning, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman asked why Donald Trump made this decision:

What Krugman left out, however, is the most likely explanation: (d) Trump is president of the United States. Nothing in this world is certain except death, taxes, and America betraying the Kurds.

The U.S. has now betrayed the Kurds a minimum of eight times over the past 100 years. The reasons for this are straightforward.

The Kurds are an ethnic group of about 40 million people centered at the intersection of Turkey, Syria, Iran, and Iraq. Many naturally want their own state. The four countries in which they live naturally do not want that to happen.

On the one hand, the Kurds are a perfect tool for U.S. foreign policy. We can arm the Kurds in whichever of these countries is currently our enemy, whether to make trouble for that country’s government or to accomplish various other objectives. On the other hand, we don’t want the Kurds we’re utilizing to ever get too powerful. If that happened, the other Kurds — i.e., the ones living just across the border in whichever of these countries are currently our allies — might get ideas about freedom and independence.

Here’s how that dynamic has played out, over and over and over again since World War I.
